Quickdraw: Menahan Street Band, Ducktails, Legendary Wings, Fidlar, Still Corners

October 16, 2012

Today’s music likes its coffee without cream.  Enjoy.

:Menahan Street Band – Lights Out:  While I love the fact that this group of soul geniuses have readied a new album, I hate that their tour with Charles Bradley doesn’t feature a stop in Austin.  Oh well.  At least I have you.  The band will release The Crossing on October 30 via Dunham/Daptone Records.

:Ducktails – The Flower Lane:  I don’t think I realized how long this Matt Mondanile-lead act has been around.  They’re about to put out their fourth full length!  That’s just sort of blowing my mind.  At any rate, this laid back pop tune is the first track to be released off their new effort, which is titled The Flower Lane and is due January 29 via Domino.

:Legendary Wings – Paper Roses:  Dirtnap Records is home to some of the best pop punk that Earth has to offer, and this band is one of their most recent signings.  You’re going to dig them.  Making Paper Roses just came out last week.  Go pick up a copy or three!

:Fidlar – Awwwkwarrrddd (Featuring Kate Nash):  Once this year is all said and done, it’s going to be very difficult to not put all of Fidlar’s 2012 tunes in my top song list.  The band just doesn’t know how to do anything bad.  This is a random single, so download it while you can.

:Still Corners – Fireflies:  This is a really pretty pop track that I probably should have posted a few weeks back.  Better late than never, right?  Still Corners are said to be working on their next full length, which will be out sometime next year on the almighty Sub Pop.

Quickdraw: Agent Ribbons, Daytona, Gauntlet Hair, The Luyas, Menahan Street Band

If you ask nicely, today’s music will pay your rent.  Enjoy.

:Agent Ribbons – Family Haircut:  Here’s a local act that I’ve come to really like in 2012.  This has come by way of older releases, though, so it’s nice to have something new so that I can chat them up.  At first glance they seem to carry a pretty simple approach to things, but if you spend a little time digging around, you’ll notice that they’re spectacular songwriters.  The Let Them Talk EP is due out on September 11 via Antenna Farm Records.

:Daytona – Undertow:  It’s difficult to not like pop music that’s warm and effortless, so I think I was maybe 30 seconds into this gem when I knew I had to share it.  The Brooklyn-based band is made up of Hunter Simpson (Wild Yaks), Jose Boyer (Harlem), and Christopher Lauderdale, and you might want to watch out for them.  Their Storm So Long EP is out now.

:Gauntlet Hair – Righteous Black:  I know there’s plenty of people out there that like this band, but this is honestly the first time I’ve gotten into one of their songs.  It’s a plodding, sonically interesting effort, and you should toss on some headphones before hitting play.  The band put this out as part of the 2012 Adult Swim Singles Program, so grab it while you can.

:The Luyas – Fifty Fifty:  I think I listened to this two of three times before I actually paid any sort of attention to the vocals.  I love the arrangement, as it is such an ear pleasing, well crafted dream.  Here’s hoping the rest of their upcoming full length has much more of the same.  The band is all set to release Animator on October 16 through Dead Oceans.

:Menahan Street Band – The Crossing:  2012 has already delivered a lot of great soul music, and now there’s a new album from these guys!?  I’m kind of blown away.  Anyhow, this track is stunning, and it makes me want to share a dance with someone in a dark club.  The Crossing will be released to the world on October 30 via Dunham Records, which is a part of Daptone.
