Quickdraw: Casket Girls, Yung, Mutual Benefit, Kristin Kontrol, Sonny & The Sunsets

Music!  Enjoy.

:Casket Girls – Tears Of A Clown:  Here’s a real attention-grabber from Casket Girls.  I hope there’s more of the same to be found on their new full length.  The Night Machines is due out June 3 via Graveface.

:Yung – The Child:  Just when I’m sure that Yung is all about being noisy, they deliver this really solid slow burner.  Their debut album is going to be great.  A Youthful Dream is due out June 10 via Fat Possum.

:Mutual Benefit – The Hereafter:  Unsurprisingly, this is a really gorgeous track.  I’m pretty sure that Mutual Benefit’s upcoming LP is going to be one of those that’s best devoured with a good pair of headphones.  Skip A Sinking Stone is due out May 20 via Mom + Pop.

:Kristin Kontrol – (Don’t) Wannabe:  “My own happiness offends me.”  Now that’s a line I can relate to.  On another note, I’m starting to come around on this project (it’s from Dee Dee of the Dum Dum Girls).  X-Communicate is due out May 27 via Sub Pop.

:Sonny And The Sunsets – Moods:  Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards) produced the new album from Sonny And The Sunsets’, and this is the latest track to be released off of it.  I think it’s a rather fun tune.  Moods Baby Moods is due out May 27 via Polyvinyl.

Quickdraw: Baauer, White Denim, Big Deal, Frankie Cosmos, Sonny And The Sunsets

Music!  Enjoy.

:Baauer – Temple (Featuring MIA And G-Dragon):  Admittedly, I haven’t paid any attention to Baauer since Harlem Shake (way back in 2012).  This track is legit rad though and has me at least somewhat interested in checking out his new LP, Aa, which just came out on LuckyMe.

:White Denim – Had 2 Know (Personal):  Here’s a new jam from White Denim.  At this point I’m certain their new album will be my 2016 go-to listen for when I’m in the car.  Stiff is due out on March 25 via Downtown.

:Big Deal – Say Yes:  “Pretty much everything that could fall apart for us, did. This included parting with our label [Mute], breaking up a relationship, band members leaving and losing all of our music when my apartment was broken in to. We didn’t want to give up, or revel in our misery. We decided instead to try and turn it into something magic.” – Alice Costelloe.  It would appear that Big Deal encountered a few issues while trying to put together a new album.  Good on them for making it work.  Say Yes is due out June 17 via FatCat.

:Frankie Cosmos – On The Lips:  This pop number from Frankie Cosmos (aka Greta Kline)  is such a charming listen.  I’m excited for her sophomore LP, Next Thing, which is due out April 1 via Bayonet Records.

:Sonny And The Sunsets – Well But Strangely Hung Man:  This is such a silly track, but I love it.  Here’s hoping that from here on out Sonny And The Sunsets only let Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards) produce their albums.  Moods Baby Moods is due out May 27 via Polyvinyl.
