Turbo Fruits

March 31, 2015

During SXSW I saw Turbo Fruits perform at a KLBJ event (full disclosure – I work at the station and it was me that booked the show), and the one particular thing that I took away from their set was that their new stuff is legit great.  If the band’s upcoming album isn’t already on your anticipated list, then you should put it there.  Below you’ll find the third single off of the soon-to-be-released LP.  It’s a nice mix of psych, garage and pop rock elements.  Enjoy.

:Turbo Fruits – No Reason To Stay:

No Control is due out April 20 via Melvin Records/Thirty Tigers.  See them at Holy Mountain on April 20.

Quickdraw: Icky Blossoms, Turbo Fruits, The Go! Team, Fred Thomas, Night Drive

March 2, 2015

Music!  Enjoy.

:Icky Blossoms – In Folds:  I didn’t really connect with Icky Blossoms’ 2012 debut, but I’m all about this new single of theirs.  It’s a fantastic dance pop tune that pretty much dominated my weekend.  Mask is due out May 12 via Saddle Creek.

:Turbo Fruits – Don’t Let Me Break Your Heart Again:  I was hoping Turbo Fruits would let loose another single before SXSW.  This track is less moody and a lot catchier than the one that came before it.  No Control is due out April 20 via Melvin Records/Thirty Tigers.

:The Go! Team – What D’You Say:  Is it just me or is the upcoming Go! Team album kind of flying under the radar?  I think the first three songs released off of it (that includes this one) have all been really good, but I’ve yet to come across anyone who has it pegged as a priority.  Maybe folks will perk up once The Scene Between is actually out on March 24 via Memphis Industries.

:Fred Thomas – Cops Don’t Care Pt. II:  Here’s the latest rambler from Fred Thomas (of Saturday Looks Good To Me).  He kind of sounds as though he’s just spewing out stuff he scribbled in a journal, but I can’t help but find it all really endearing.  All Are Saved is due out April 7 via Polyvinyl.

:Night Drive – Easy To Lie (Original Mix):  This is a rather inspired slice of synth-filled goodness from Austin’s own Night Drive.  A full length from the duo is coming at some point this year, and I’m expecting it to be really good.  The Easy To Lie single is out now on Sound Control Records.

Quickdraw: Toro Y Moi, Big Bill, The Babies, Turbo Fruits, FIDLAR

January 26, 2015

Music!  Enjoy.

:Toro Y Moi – Empty Nesters:  If anything, you have to applaud Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi) for keeping things fresh.  His last album was fairly disco/funky, and now his new one seems to be aiming for more of a blissed-out (but still danceable) indie pop sound.  What For? will be released on April 7 via Carpark.

:Big Bill – Sweet Boy:  Big Bill are a quirky garage rock act that’s been a real bright spot in Austin for the last year or so.  This track is probably my favorite selection off of their recently released Second Bill EP, which you should snatch up now via Bandcamp.

:The Babies – Got Old:  “I was 21, I was 33.”  I relate to this lyric a whole lot more than I’d like to.  Big thanks to The Babies for crushing me.  I guess.  This is from a two-song single that’s currently available via iTunes.

:Turbo Fruits – The Way I Want You:  The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney produced this new one from Turbo Fruits.  It features lyrics that are a bummer and a sound that’s thoroughly 90s rock, so I like it a lot.  No Control is due out April 20 via Melvin/Thirty Tigers Records.

:FIDLAR – If It Makes You Happy (Sheryl Crow Cover):  Yes, FIDLAR covering Sheryl Crow is just as fun and obnoxious as you’re thinking it must be.  Now crank the volume, hit play and let it take you.  This is just a one-off, so grab it while you can.
