    Drunk On Halloween

    Having just wrapped performances at Austin City Limits, and just Ahead of a Voodoo Festival appearance in the week to come, it has been an Incredible year for Wallows, and they’re not finished yet as the fellas swoop in to celebrate the spooky season with you with this New Unveil of “Drunk On Halloween”!

     

    Wallows’ “morning-after ballad for last night’s Halloween party,” according to Flood Magazine, mixes “soothing acoustic guitar against a grandiose horn section, all soundtracking a harmony of post-party maturity harkening back to late-period Walkmen.”

    Elastic Days

    J Mascis“Elastic Days” is upon us! A collection of songs brimming with epic hooks and subtle guitar textures that slide against each other like old lovers and snare you in surprisingly subtle ways.

     

    Like its solo outing predecessors, “Elastic Days” was recorded at J‘s own Bisquiteen studio. Mascis does almost all his own stunts, although Ken Miauri (who also appeared on “Tied to a Star”) plays keyboards and there are a few guest vocal spots. These include old mates Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion), as well as the newly added voice of Zoë Randell (Luluc)  among others. But the show is mostly J‘s and J‘s alone.

     

    The biggest difference with this record might have to do with the drums says Mascis. “I’d just got a new drum set I was really excited about. I don’t have too many drum outlets at the moment, so I played a lot more drums than I’d originally planned. I just kept playing. [laughs] I’d play the acoustic guitar parts then head right to the drums.”

     

    “a lovely, open-hearted song that punctuates Mascis’ rich, acoustic strums with some lightning-strike electric solos.”—Consequence Of Sound

     

    “a warm, shaggy strummer that’s still a bit more visceral than most of Mascis’ recent solo stuff. He plays some triumphant, blazing electric solos in there, and his drums sound pretty great, too.”—Stereogum

     

    “Elastic Days promises to have more than a good rhythm: We’re looking forward to unexpected hooks and guitar slides that straddle a broad range of genres.”—PASTE

    "Every Day Swan" (clean edit)

    It’s the first New Material In 18 Years from Royal Trux! Their lengthy recording break has done Nothing to diminish their visceral intensity, and as they plan a new album in the new year we’ve A Pair for you to throw immediately down your earholes (Crank These!)–“Every Day Swan” & “Get Used To This” (feat. Kool Keith)!

     

    Royal Trux find innovation in their ‘Bitches Brew’ aesthetic which now defines the standard mash-up approach so commonly ascertained and claimed by the majority of musicians that whether cognizant or not have followed in Trux’s very large footsteps: “everything in the pot whether you like it or not,” deriving from world music, punk rock, jazz, metal, electronic, southern, teeny-bop and all the rest. In the tradition of the blues, through appropriation and re-evaluation, Royal Trux changed the way we think of music. Their return is nothing short of glorious.

     

    After signing with a major label for major money in 1995 (neither of the two had bank accounts, credit cards, or drivers licenses) Royal Trux were promoted as bad ass wild cards, dangerous, – and a few other themes deemed “cool” as marketing gimmicks –  that stuck as an indelible image that still follows them. Mostly because it was (mostly) all true. Brazenly redefining the rules for alternative rock bands with genre-defying music, and the genius of Neil Hagerty’s playing, they were fronted by a willfully non-archetypal female singer whose stance became its own archetype over the years, as the world caught on to the need for a new breed. Subsequently, a generation of females looked to Jennifer Herrema for inspiration, emulation and commodification. Their abrupt and lengthy absence came to a close in 2015 when they reformed for a string of shows.

    Moving Panoramas

    In Two

    It’s the triumphant return of Austin, TX’s Moving Panoramas! Spacey but not alienating, loud yet still light, painting panoramic sound against a moving melodic backdrop, the new single “Baby Blues”
    Moving Panoramas‘ 2015 debut LP “One”, conjured a wave of dream gaze and international acclaim, but unexpected roadblocks arose during production of this sophomore album, with health hiccups and timing twists causing release detours. Fortunately, the finish line has been crossed and the new LP, “In Two”, which takes flight 2/22/19 on Modern Outsider Records!

     

    Moving Panoramas break the shell of “One” veritably “In Two” with the new record, expanding room for more diversity, rhythm, volume, instrumentation such as the swimmy pedal steel, plus special guests Matthew Caws of Nada Surf, Sabrina Ellis of A Giant Dog/Sweet Spirit, and past Panoramas Karen Skloss, Jolie Flink, and Laura Colwell. Over the years, the band’s lineup featured a moving cast of magical busy talent, but has luckily landed on the incredibly solid current “Baby Blues” crew with Cara Tillman, Jordan Rivell, Jody Suarez, and Phil McJunkins.

     

    The Austin Chronicle describes MP as, “Conjuring a big yet intimate sound reminiscent of Nineties output from Brit indie 4AD.” Pop Matters compares the music to Dum Dum Girls, Best Coast, and The Aislers Set saying, “Austin-based band Moving Panoramas waste no time creating a niche for themselves within that style…” NPR’s Songs We Love says, “The ingredients and the sentiment might be simple, but the outcome is disarmingly complex.” KCRW’s Today’s Top Tune says, “Moving Panoramas have been honing an expansive sound that is rooted in slithering guitar-work and crisp vocals.” Brooklyn Vegan says, “Austin’s Moving Panoramas make hazy psych pop with the kind of intricate harmonies that instantly elevate things a couple inches off the ground.” The Guardian (UK) New Band of the Week says, “They’re in Warpaint’s ballpark, or Best Coast’s hazy dream pop territory, and are most likely to make Theresa Wayman and co jealous.”

    Be Content

    Following up their intro track “Hi”, Kent, England’s Indoor Pets swoop in for the kill with the Instant sounding New Single “Being Strange,” and upon announcement of their upcoming album “Be Content” (out 3/8/19)!

     

    Familiar feelings of not fitting in or wanting to play the hand life’s dealt you delivered with self-deprecating wit and Indoor Pets’ frontman Jamie Glass’ trademark use of double-bluffing world play. Think Rivers Cuomo and a pre-sandpit Brian Wilson blowing off school to play records and snigger at the cool kids. Indoor Pets’ music is smart, life-affirming and all contained within a thumping primary-coloured pop wallop.

     

    “I feel like a black sheep a lot of the time,” notes Glass of his approach to writing songs. “The logic I had with songwriting was if I could reveal that in my songs and connect with other people who felt like that, then that will cure the feeling of being a black sheep. Everyone would be like ‘I’m a black sheep too! There’s thousands of us, we’re all loners!’ It nullifies the feeling of being a weirdo. Basically I’m just waiting for everyone to justify me being weird.”

    WAX

    KT Tunstall’s newly released album “WAX” was produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Nick McCarthy, has a rockin’ sound and and is a Great way to re-discover this passionate artist who delivers powerful tunes and kicks it out hard on her latest!

     

    Speaking about her 6th studio album, KT Tunstall says of ‘WAX’ “I knew before I started writing that I wanted it to be an electric guitar record. It had to be visceral, about the physical, and the weight of that, and the obstacles of that. It’s a record about human-ness, which we so often just write off as ‘flaws’.”

     

    The title a nod to the viscous pungency of one of the body’s natural substances. “Wax evokes colonies of bees, candlelight, the material that the first long-playing records were made of”, Tunstall explains, “but more than that, wax is produced inside your own head. You unconsciously create it, and then weirdly that same basic substance has been used for centuries to make the most lifelike replicas of human beings. It has a life glow to it. It sticks to you. We have these strange, ancient connections and relationships with wax. How odd is it that the body produces all these substances from all these holes!” laughs this stoutly down-to-earth singer, songwriter and guitarist.

     

    Tunstall’s had big hit songs that evolved her earlier in her career, and those songs are powerful pieces and certainly a testament to her songwriting and performance strengths to be sure. Now is the time to see who and what she is TODAY–a rockin’ lady leading a musical and social charge who still commands a significant following here in the U.S. and a bigger one worldwide. We Love Her!

    Lion

    Lion

    Following up her fiery Top 3 SubModern charting Single “Self Control”, and hot on the heels of the Londoner’s self-titled EP release, LION’s latest single is the soaring, jagged rocker “Oh No”. It simultaneously conjures Flo & The Machine and The White Stripes via her signature ferocious and raspy howl and a soaring chorus.

     

    The first time LION (aka Beth Lowen) sang in public, a woman she didn’t know approached her. “You sound like you’ve smoked 20 cigarettes,” she told her, “and drunk a bottle of whisky.” Given that Beth was 10-years-old and unsurprisingly had done nothing of the sort, she started to cry. “I thought that was a bad thing,” she recalls, laughing. “And my parents were like, ‘No, no! That’s good!”

     

    Nowadays, Lowen embraces the ferocious, Janis Joplin-esque rasp of her voice. In fact, it’s one of the reasons she chose to adopt the name LION. “Someone said I sound like a lion,” she explains, “Also, everyone says I have lion hair, and ‘Löwen’ means lions in German.” Still, declaring herself deserving of such a fierce moniker wasn’t something that came easily. “I didn’t mention it to anybody for months,” she admits. “It’s a big statement, it’s pretty extreme. But I was looking at people like Lorde, and I was like, that’s f*cking cool. And then I was like, f*ck it. So now it’s “Lion.” The stage name never feels more apt than it does when LION performs live. Her husky but powerful voice, already so potent on record, is unleashed to its full, roaring potential, as she jitters a little behind the mic, bathed in red light.

     

    Lowen doesn’t make music than can be easily compared or categorized. Each song differs from the next – though there’s one thing she hopes they all manage to achieve. “I hope people feel something,” she says, “like I do when I’m playing it. Take what you want from it, but feel. I want to make boys cry.”

    Mini Mansions new single “Midnight In Tokyo” comes from the newly released “Works Every Time” EP (out now!). The Gorillaz-inspired track is at the heart of the band’s new approach to songwriting. It captures the lifespan of a relationship, from falling in love to eventually breaking up.

     

    “Inspired by true romances and real heartbreaks, this song came to life after an existential trip to Tokyo. This track is no deep cut, but it’s content sure does cut deep. This is the second installment in the new Mini Mansions wave to come.”—Mini Mansions

    Hunger

    Naked

    Hailing from the idyllic suburbs of Vienna, HUNGER embodies their own sound, as visceral and evocative as their name suggests and continues to bring it to life with a slate of new material that bests their past efforts. The immediate sounding new single “Naked” is about the inner battle and struggle we all have sometimes.

     

    “People tend to question themselves if they’re good enough, good looking or smart enough while being put into boxes from other people. Constant judgment in our society these day create a lot of pressure, especially on young people. ‘Naked’s’ message is that ‘it’s ok to be yourself’ ‘it’s ok to be weird’ ‘be who you are’ and don’t care too much what other people think about you.”– HUNGER’s Daniel Rumpel.

     

    HUNGER first formed in early 2014. Childhood friends, Daniel Rumpel and Johannes Herbst approached long-term fellow vocalist Lucas Fendrich with the intention of creating a truly dark and cinematic sound. Once they’d developed a batch of demos, the three musicians headed to the outskirts of Vienna, built up a studio in a borrowed apartment and brought their sound to life.

     

    When it came time to choose a name for their project, the trio landed on an emotionally evocative word with endless possibilities for interpretation. “‘Hunger’ is such a strong word that can be applied to so many things and really represents how we feel about music,” says Rumpel. “Nowadays everybody’s hungry for more, everybody’s searching for something new—so hunger is usually thought of as a negative,” says Fendrich. “We wanted to twist that and turn it into a good feeling. Because if you’re hungry for love, then that can actually be something very positive and beautiful.”

     

    In just a short time, HUNGER have managed to build multiple successes Already via prior single “Amused” which raked up over 2.5 million streams on Spotify, a Mitsubishi commercial that has run for the entirety of 2018, a feature on Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, as well as festival opportunities alongside the likes of Alt-J, Phoenix, Milky Chance, The Strumbellas and Feist.

    Following up their Top 7 SubModern specialty show charting single “(Let’s Make) Compelling Content”, BIG MOTHER GIG are back with another track off their “No More Questions” album and in the cathartic power-rocker “The Great Heist”!

     

    “We are really affected by today’s political climate and by what appears to be a fleecing of the American people. We wanted to write about what future generations would think when they would look back at this.”—BMG singer/guitarist Richard Jankovich.

     

    “….with a really aggressive, heart and soul Midwestern, Husker-Du kind of sound….”—The Current/Minneapolis (KCMP)

     

    “sure to find its way into your head”—PASTE

     

    “a blend of punk, indie and alternative”—Alternative Press

     

    “Well-thought out, highly educated lyrics….have our ears begging for more.” —Impose

     

    “Big Mother Gig take the established melodies and add to them with a cacophony of vocals that stick like an ear worm”—New Noise

     

    BIG MOTHER GIG originally formed in 1992 in Milwaukee and played across the Midwest with The Magnolias, The Hunger, PunchDrunk (who later formed The Hold Steady) and more. At their final show in 1996, a label showcase, Soul Asylum’s Dave Pirner praised the band but they soon broke up when singer Richard Jankovich moved to New York. Throughout the ‘00s, Jankovich achieved success with Burnside Project (who’s “Cue The Pulse To Begin” was the theme to “Queer As Folk” and went Top 30 in Japan) and Pocket (who’s remixes for Radiohead and Beck were praised by Pitchfork, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan and others).

     

    Since reforming, BIG MOTHER GIG has played with LUNA, Soccer Mommy, Peelander-Z , Alvarez Kings, The Yawpers, and most recently Gin Blossoms, among others. New members include Mike Datz (Liz Phair), Albert Kurniawan (Graham Ulicny of The Faint) and Micah Lopez.

    Missing Something

    The Bright Light Social Hour’s “Missing Something” EP is the Austin, TX band’s first collection of new music in three years and is out now. Produced by the band, mixed by Spoon’s Jim Eno and mastered by Dave Cooley (M83, Wolf Alice, Blood Orange), the EP is a deeply personal collection of songs heavily influenced by the death of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jack O’Brien’s brother Alex, TBLSH’s longtime manager who struggled with bipolar disorder.

     

    “These songs capture a very confusing and uncanny turn in our lives, Alex’s descent into sudden and severe bipolar 1 disorder as well as the end of a global epoch,” O’Brien says. “To me, the music channels the schizoid joy of your world unraveling so quickly you’ve got no choice but to pull back and enjoy your beautiful, short-circuiting self, not even worrying about making sense of it all ‘cause that’s just not possible.”

     

    Known for their incredible live shows, TBLSH has performed at major festivals in addition to their own national and international touring, including Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Festival. This fall, the band has already announced a handful of Texas dates, with more TBA.

     

    “No matter how much research you put into figuring out who will be the hottest new artists of each year, another act comes into your vision with an output that absolutely blows you away. Today, that band is Austin, Texas’ The Bright Light Social Hour.”—Huffington Post

    Father John Misty

    God's Favorite Customer

    Written largely in New York between Summer 2016 and Winter 2017, Josh Tillman’s fourth Father John Misty LP, “God’s Favorite Customer”, reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom.

     

    God’s Favorite Customer” reveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. From “Mr. Tillman,” where he trains his lens on his own misadventure, to the cavernous pain of estrangement in “Please Don’t Die,” Tillman plays with perspective throughout to alternatingly hilarious and devastating effect.  “We’re Only People (And There’s Not Much Anyone Can Do About That)” is a meditation on our inner lives and the limitations we experience in our attempts to give and receive love. It stands in solidarity with the title track, which examines the ironic relationship between forgiveness and sin. Together, these are songs that demand to know either real love or what comes after, and as the album progresses, that entreaty leads to discovering the latter’s true stakes.

     

    God’s Favorite Customer”was produced by Tillman and recorded with Jonathan Rado, Dave Cerminara, and Trevor Spencer. The album features contributions from Haxan Cloak, Natalie Mering of Weyes Blood, longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson, and members of Misty’s touring band.

  • Beach House

    Beach House

    7

    Beach House (Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand) released “B-sides and Rarities” in 2017, which served as a proverbial ‘cleaning out the closet’ to pave way for a new creative process. Their approach in the creation of 7″ was rebirth and rejuvenation.  Scally and Legrand used to limit themselves to what they thought they could perform live, but this time that limitation was ignored.  Also, instead of one long studio session, Beach House recorded when inspired by batches of songs, which resulted in five mini-sessions over the course of eleven months.

     

    Unlike the last four albums, “7” didn’t have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection.  The band’s trusted live drummer from 2016 to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the center of a lot of these songs.

     

    “The balance, once again, is everything—weightlessness and ballast, vague hopes and creeping dread, sun and shadow.”—Pitchfork

     

    “the tone is immaculate, just the right blend of messy and pristine. It’s like being forced out of a dream into a reality that’s somehow even brighter.”—Stereogum

     

    “It’s a glorious evolution.”—NPR

     

    “Like ‘Lemon Glow’, ‘Dive’ adds a slightly darker and grittier edge to the band’s signature dream-pop sound.”—NME

     

    “fits neatly into the tonal lexicon of Beach House with Victoria Legand’s regal vocals perfectly accompanying Alex Scally’s shimmering guitar licks…it seems as though Beach House are moving into a slightly intense psychedelic territory.”--NOISEY/Vice

    Hope Downs

    Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are thrilled to announce their debut album, “Hope Downs”! To coincide with this news, they’ve shared a new video and single, “Talking Straight.”

     

    Fittingly recorded in a house in the middle of the Northern NSW bush, “Talking Straight” hits hard with its driving rhythm and melodic, interweaving guitars, while reflecting on the loneliness of being a small person in the big universe. In singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe White’s own words:

     

    “The concept came about when I heard someone talking about the possibility of us, humans, being alone in the universe, and how sad that would be. The idea in this song is that we might be lonely, but we could be lonely together.”

     

    “Talking Straight” marks the second release of new music from the band for 2018 and following up previous single “Mainland”. The two songs collectively show how, after a pair of buzz-building EPs, “Hope Downs” is truly that album that was promised.

     

    The album title, taken from the name of a vast open cut mine in the middle of Australia, refers to the feeling of standing at the edge of the void of the big unknown, and finding something to hold on to. It’s a record that focuses on finding the bright spots at a time when cynicism all too often feels like the natural state. Rolling Blackouts C.F. are here to remind us to keep our feet on the ground—and “Hope Downs” is as delicious a taste of terra firma as you’re going to get from a rock band right now.

    Superorganism

    Superorganism

    Occasionally, along comes a band that Perfectly captures so much of what is thrilling about music right now! Superorganism is a collection of eight international musicians and pop culture junkies (London/Japan/Australia/New Zealand) whose “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” we’re frankly beginning to worry about since We Simply Can’t Stop Playing It!

     

    Numbering eight in total, and recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Superorganism currently live together in a house/DIY studio/band HQ in East London.

     

    It was in this house back in January that Superorganism had their big bang moment. Though they’d previously created music and visuals together, this was something distinctly fresh. They sent the track to their friend Orono, a Japanese student who at that time was studying at high school in Maine. Orono wrote and recorded a vocal part and pressed “reply”. What came back across the Atlantic was an intoxicating piece of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop that was “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” With that, Superorganism was born!

     

    It’s unlikely at that point Superorganism would’ve expected to hear that track played on Frank Ocean or Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig’s radio shows, Or that the band’s identity would be the subject of so much speculation. Or that they would sign a deal with the legendary independent Domino label or that there’d be such demand to see the band live that their debut UK show would full London’s 700 capacity Village Underground. But over the last few months such is the trajectory of this unique band. You, my friend, are in for a treat!
