Tancred – Reviews

Tancred impressed me with their 2016 release, Out Of The Garden, so I’m definitely looking forward to the freshly announced follow-up, Nightstand (due June 1).  Jump all over the sincere first single now.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Shiggy

A month or two back Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks put out a twang-ish rocker, and I figured that was the direction for the new album.  Nope!  The latest track is wonderfully noisy.  Look for Sparkle Hard on May 18.  The act will be at the Mohawk on July 25.

Snail Mail – Pristine

Snail Mail put on one of the best sets I saw at SXSW, and I can’t to check out their debut LP, Lush (due June 8).  Hard to believe that front woman Lindsey Jordan just graduated high school.  By the way, the band is set to play the Scoot Inn with Japanese Breakfast on April 10.

Iceage – Take It All

Every song released so far off of Iceage’s upcoming album, Beyondless (due May 4), has been next level stuff.  You should be very excited for its release.  I am.  The band will play Barracuda on May 27.

Hop Along – Prior Things

I caught a fairly rough set from Hop Along at SXSW (not really their fault, there were sound issues), but that’s not stopping me from being excited about their upcoming album, Bark Your Head Off, Dog (due April 6).  The new tune off of it is a head turner.

November 12, 2013


Not that I didn’t have any hope for 2014 or something, but I’m certainly a lot more excited now that I know Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks will be putting out a new album.  The first single, which is charming and catchy and makes me want to listen to nothing but Malkmus-related stuff for the next few days, can be found in lyric video form below (sorry, no mp3 on this one).  Wig Out At Jagbags is due out January 7 via Matador.  Enjoy.
