Quickdraw: Grooms, Radical Dads, Cheatahs, Lowin, Gal Pals

January 20, 2015

Music!  Enjoy.

:Grooms – Comb The Feelings Through Your Hair:  There’s a distinct Dismemberment Plan vibe all over this new one from Grooms, and that has me really excited about what else may be on their new album.  Comb The Feelings Through Your Hair is due out February 17 via Western Vinyl.

:Radical Dads – Don’t Go:  “Don’t you touch my dude!”  That’s the opening lyric here, and I think it’s hilarious.  As for the rest of the song, it’s high quality 90s-enthused indie rock, and I dig it.  Universal Coolers is due out February 24 via Old Flame.

:Cheatahs – Sunne:  According to the press release for this track, Cheatahs wanted a “bittersweet end-of-day feeling, as if the sun were setting” type of sound here.  Nailed it.  The Sunne EP is due out February 23 via Wichita Recordings.

:Lowin – Best Laid Plans:  Austin’s own Lowin came into existence about a year ago, and they’ve been a favorite of mine ever since.  That Sara Houser sure can sing.  Look for the band’s Royal Jelly EP on April 7.

:Gal Pals – Punisher:  Here’s a new single (the last one is here) from Gal Pals’ upcoming debut.  It’s delightfully raw and catchy as hell.  Velvet Rut is due out February 24 via Papercup Music.

Quickdraw: Pompeii, NehruvianDOOM, Superhumanoids, Dream Police, Radical Dads

September 22, 2014

Music!  Enjoy.

:Pompeii – Loom:  I’m starting to think that Pompeii’s upcoming album might end up being one of the better efforts to come out of Austin in 2014.  This song in particular reminds me of Transatlanticism/Plans-era Death Cab For Cutie.  Loom will be released on October 14 via Red Eye Transit.

:NehruvianDOOM – Caskets:  Aside from Run The Jewels’ new one, the other hip hop effort that I can’t wait to hear is the debut from NehruvianDOOM.  Personally, I think DOOM is always impressive, but I will admit that it does sound as though his partnership with Bishop Nehru has refreshed him.  The act will release their self titled album on October 6 via Lex.

:Superhumanoids – Flipping Out:  Here’s a new single from Superhumanoids.  Like everything they do, this is adequately hooky and totally ready to be devoured through a nice pair of headphones.  The Flipping Out/Another One 7″ is available now via Innovative Leisure.  The band is set to play two nights at ACL Live with Erasure.

:Dream Police – Hypnotized:  Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi, who founded the Men, are the main brains behind Dream Police.  This driving rock track is pretty damn great, and I’m looking forward to hearing more.  The band will release Hypnotized on November 11 via Sacred Bones.

:Radical Dads – In The Water:  The still-wonderfully named Radical Dads have signed to Old Flame and put together a new EP (while they wrap their third album).  I’ve long been fond of their 90s rock ways, and you should be too.  Look for the Cassette Brain EP when it gets set free on October 7.

Quickdraw: Thee Oh Sees, Radical Dads, Those Howlings, Dum Dum Girls, Mogwai

November 4, 2013

Today’s music totally agrees with you.

:Thee Oh Sees – What You Need:  Only Thee Oh Sees can put out nine albums a year and then still need a separate release for their various one-off tracks, split contributions, and more.  The band will release Singles Collection: Volume 3 on November 26 via Castle Face.  Catch them at Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend.

:Radical Dads – Creature Out:  My favorite thing about Radical Dads is that they seem incapable of making something that’s not filled with enthusiasm.  I find it infectious.  Be sure to grab the band’s new 7″ single when it gets released on November 5 via EAU Records.  In case you missed it, they also put out a full length, Rapid Reality, earlier this year.

:Those Howlings – Paid For You:  Here’s a catchy little number from Those Howlings, who are an Austin act that I’ve been meaning to show some love for a while now.  It’s an endearing piece of retro pop.  You can get the band’s new 7″ single now over at their Bandcamp page.

:Dum Dum Girls – Lost Boys And Girls Club:  I know the Dum Dum Girls are already pretty well known, but I think this track’s particularly polished alt-rock sound will probably attract a slew of new listeners.  Good for them.  The band will put out Too True on January 28 via Sub Pop.

:Mogwai – Remurdered:  First of all, Remurdered is probably the best song title this year.  Secondly, this atmospheric beast of a single means we all get to start 2014 with a new Mogwai full length, and that’s fantastic.  Rave Tapes is due out January 21 via Sub Pop.

Quickdraw: Grape St, Radical Dads, Cheatahs, Haim, Alela Diane

March 18, 2013

Today’s music is happy that SXSW is over.  Enjoy.

:Grape St – A Date With You:  Here’s another band (the other is Lace Curtains) that has come about because of Harlem going on hiatus.  They make some seriously catchy stuff and have quickly become an act to know around Austin.  Our friends over at Austin Town Hall will release A Date With You tomorrow.

:Radical Dads – Mountain Town:  This act put out an easy to like indie rock album titled Mega Rama back in 2011.  It was a super solid release, but I will say that I like how this track seems to indicate a more aggressive approach on their new LP.  That should make for some added fun.  Rapid Reality is due out May 21 via Uninhabitable Mansions.

:Cheatahs – Fall:  I saw this band’s name on a lot of SXSW bills, but I didn’t make an effort to see them.  This may have been a mistake, as I’m now seeing that they make some rather good shoegaze.  No release date has been given, but Cheatahs are expected to out an album this year via Wichita.

:Haim – Falling (Duke Dumont Remix):  I tend to be overly picky when it comes to remixes, so you know it means something when I say that I really dig what Duke Dumont did with this track.  It’s now so light that it effortlessly glides around the room.  Turn the volume up like you mean it.

:Alela Diane – The Way We Fall:  This is such a pretty track.  I’ve really got to start paying more attention to Alela.  I always post the singles and then never check out her albums, which is just totally lame on my part.  Anyway, About Farewell will be released at some point later this year.
