Bradford Cox has always been a fascinating character, and “Timebends” continues to cement him and Deerhunter as one of the most intriguing installments in indie music today.
Michael Kiwanuka has a new album out this fall, and recently gave us a video for “Hero”. Let’s take a look…
I’m somewhat smitten by the upbeat pop sounds of one of Sub Pop‘s new signings from the past year or two. Itâ€™s a little band out of Australia with a weird, long band name: Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. If I didn’t have better things to do, like listen to this EP again unhindered by the… Continue reading One Weird, Long Band Name: A Peek at Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s New EP ‘The French Press’
For as long as I’ve followed the band, Moon Duo has always created music that is dark, mystical and filled with substantial space rock drone. So it was with intrigue that I approached their new 2017 project, two LPs dubbed Occult Architecture Vol. 1 and Occult Architecture Vol. 2. The first was released by Sacred… Continue reading Moon Duo Step Out from the Dark with Occult Architecture Vol. 2
I can still say I am super excited for their return, 22 years after their last release. The band released a new video for “Sugar for the Pill” this week. It’s off their forthcoming self-titled LP out May 5 on Dead Oceans. “Sugar for the Pill” sees a slightly different side of Slowdive. Many of… Continue reading Slowdive Returns After 22 Years with “Sugar for the Pill” Video
It’s been a few years since I fell down the rabbit hole and into an obsession with the original era of psychedelic rock. Those days found me obsessing over everything from classics like The 13th Floor Elevators and Bubble Puppy to discovering lesser known favorites like St. John Green and The Druids of Stonehenge. And… Continue reading “Not Me Sir” by Wolf People: Watch the Psychedelic Video, Hear the Psychedelic Song
Today, Swedish pop artist Jens Lekman released a video for his song “How We Met, The Long Version” off his new Secretly Canadian LP Life Will See You Now. And, to be honest, as of the writing of these first few paragraphs, I have not yet watched it or heard anything off the new record.… Continue reading 4 Minutes of Jens Lekman Dancing in “How We Met, The Long Version”
Pretty stoked about the forthcoming LP by The Afghan Whigs. Out May 5 on the band’s longtime label Sub Pop, it’s called In Spades and it promises more of the great rock Greg Dulli and the guys have been doling out since 1986 (minus the 10 year hiatus in the aughts). Want proof? They posted… Continue reading The Afghan Whigs Share Video for “Demon in Profile”
Superb garage punk rock band Bleached has a new EP called Can You Deal? and it promises to be just as stunning as their recent LP Welcome the Worms. The release dropped Friday and with it a video for the release’s title track: I dig the black and white video. In fact, I dig Bleached… Continue reading Can You Deal with the New Video by Bleached?
I’ve been crushing on The Fresh & Onlys since their widely heralded 2009 LP Grey-Eyed Girls. (Hard to believe that it’s almost been a decade since that release.) A year later, Play it Strange would become one of my favorite sleeper albums of the year. However, it wasn’t until two years later that they were… Continue reading A Retrospective Look at Animal of One by The Fresh & Onlys
