Quickdraw: Jeff The Brotherhood, The Faint, Duchess Says, Tennis, Big Baby D.R.A.M.

August 8, 2016

Music!  Enjoy.

:Jeff The Brotherhood – Roachin (Featuring Alicia Bognanno):  Here’s a quickie from Jeff The Brotherhood that features Alicia from Bully.  I love it, but I really do wish it was about four minutes longer.  Zone is due out August 12 via Dine Alone Records.

:The Faint – Skylab1979:  The Faint are getting ready to release a “greatest hits” comp of sorts, and with it will come a 7″ with some new tracks.  This is one of them.  It sounds like The Faint (in a good way, of course).  CAPSULE: 1999-2016 is due out September 30 via Saddle Creek.

:Duchess Says – I Repeat Myself:  I didn’t even think Duchess Says were a thing anymore, so it was a nice surprise when I stumbled across this new track from them.  It’s a very 80s-enthused effort, and I think it’s glorious.  Science Nouvelles is due out October 14 via Slovenly/Bonsound.

:Tennis – Ladies Don’t Play Guitar:  Tennis recently rolled out this new single.  Sound-wise it’s like their previous material, but the lyrics definitely feature a more assertive approach from frontwoman Aliana Moore.  Good for her.  No word yet on when a new album will arrive.

:Big Baby D.R.A.M. – Cute:  A couple of months ago D.R.A.M. (I guess he recently tagged Big Baby to the front of that?) played a show I put together for Red Bull Sound Select, and this song was one of the standout moments in his set.  I’m pumped to have a studio version.

Quickdraw: Deerhoof, The Faint, Brand New, Father John Misty, Okkervil River

Music!  Enjoy.

:Deerhoof – Criminals Of The Dream:  I’ve quickly become attached to this overly pleasant new single from Deerhoof.  Can’t wait to hear the new album.  The Magic is due out June 24 via Polyvinyl.  See the band at the Mohawk on August 16.

:The Faint – Young And Realistic:  To coincide with the announcement of their tour with Gang of Four, The Faint put out his track.  Get ready to want to danse.  The band will be at Emo’s on October 15.

:Brand New – I Am A Nightmare:  Here’s an anthemic new one from Brand New, who haven’t released anything since 2009′s Daisy.  I’m into it.  The I Am A Nightmare 12″ will be out in June.  See the band with Modest Mouse at Austin360 Amphitheater on July 23.

:Father John Misty – Real Love Baby:  I can’t say I’ve ever felt the need to fully board the Father John Misty hype train, but I do really like this song – it’s so warm and catchy.  Grab this one while you can, as it’s a one-off effort.

:Okkervil River – Okkervil River RIP:  This is a slow-paced, nearly seven minute ball of sadness from Okkervil River.  You should strap on some headphones before you hit play.  Away is due out September 9 via ATO Records.

Throwback Thursday: Saddle Creek

May 15, 2014

0 Comments

My Throwback Thursday for this week is the Saddle Creek 50 compilation.  Put together to celebrate the label’s 50th release, the effort has two songs (an album cut and one exclusively for the compilation) from each band that was on the roster in 2003.

Saddle Creek 50 helped jump start my still-strong love for the label.  At the time I was only aware of Cursive and Bright Eyes, so it was fun to discover both of their side projects - The Good Life and Desaparecidos – along with other stellar acts like Rilo Kiley, The Faint, and Azure Ray.  And they were all signed to the same roster!  Definitely an exciting time for the “just figuring out indie music” version of me.
