Quickdraw: The Men, Tony Molina, Ex Hex, Owls, Phantogram

Music!  Enjoy.

:The Men – Different Days: Last week The Men released two tracks. This one is a snarl-filled effort, and I really dig it.  The other song, to be honest, kind of sounds like a White Denim track and it largely just weirds me out.  Sacred Bones will release Tomorrow’s Hits on March 4.

:Tony Molina – Nowhere To Go:  Here’s another super short pop gem from Tony Molina.  It’s pretty incredible how catchy and awesome the guy can be in just 48 seconds.  Dissed and Dismissed will be available on March 25 through Slumberland.

:Ex Hex – Hot And Cold:  Wild Flag may be dead, but that’s not stopping Mary Timony.  She’s gone and started Ex Hex with Betsy Wright (Fire Tapes) and Laura Harris (The Aquarium), and this rocking track is their first single.  Grab the Hot And Cold 7″ when Merge releases it on March 18.

:Owls – Ancient Stars Seed:  ”The line ‘We’ve never had nice stuff’ feels good to sing because we really are still a grubby foursome with broken equipment and no money and I see these shitty young bands every day with pedal boards and no ideas.”  Any song that comes with a quote like that from Tim Kinsella gets my seal of approval.  The apparently very inspired Two will be out on March 25 via Polyvinyl.

:Phantogram – Bill Murray:  This is a rather pretty, slow burning track from Phantogram.  I think it’s a good change of pace for them, but I will admit it’s a little odd to not hear their usual aggressive swirl of sounds.  The band will release Voices on February 18 via Republic.

Quickdraw: Bleeding Rainbow, Cheatahs, Speedy Ortiz, Owls, The Men

Music!  Enjoy.

:Bleeding Rainbow – So You Know:  There’s some 90s shimmer to this Bleeding Rainbow track, and I’m digging it.  I’m curious to see if their upcoming album is entirely like this or if there will be a few tracks that still sport the band’s usual upbeat/fuzzy sound.  Kanine Records is set to release Interrupt on February 25.

:Cheatahs – Get Tight:  It never dawned on me until this song, but Cheatahs sound a lot like the early days of Silversun Pickups.  I approve.  You’ll be able to grab the band’s self titled debut on February 11 via Wichita Recordings.

:Speedy Ortiz – American Horror:  Here’s the second single from Speedy Ortiz’s upcoming EP.  It’s a little less hooky than some of their other tunes, but the band makes up for it with a heavier than usual sound.  Crank it, friends.  Get the Real Hair EP on February 11 via Carpark Records.

:Owls – I’m Surprised:  After a solid 13 year break, Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor Villarreal, and Sam Zurick have decided to reform as Owls.  This is one of those things that’s good for the world.  Polyvinyl will release Two on March 25.

:The Men – Pearly Gates:  The Men are back (after two or three days off this past Fall) with their fifth album in as many years, and this first single is wild and kind of perfect.  The awesomely titled Tomorrow’s Hits is due out on March 4 via Sacred Bones.  See the band at the Mohawk on April 26.
