New Music October!

11 Oct



Been off for the last few months taking care of business matters. But I’m back to offer up new music for your ears. Did get out to Loufest this past summer. Caught the tremendous live show of Future Islands, Cake, San Fermin, Those Darlins, Washed Out, Delta Spirit, Yo La Tengo and more. Fun day. Strongly suggest hitting your local music festival.

U2- Volcano

So maybe that album release stunt didn’t work like they thought it would. Sure a lot of people don’t like Bono’s antics and righteousness act. But these long standing Irish lads can still churn out  some pretty good rock n’ roll.

We Were Promised Jetpacks- Safety In Numbers

The great British indie rock band return with a monster new album Unravelling. Full of graceful and churning tunes that hit deep.

Aphex Twin- minipops 67 (120.2) (source field mix)

Been forever and a day since Aphex Twin released any new music on the world. It was almost a surprise when he put his new album Syro out. It’s full of challenging song titles but the music is still Aphex Twin even from a mile away. Check the digital bleeps and blips out.

Minus The Bear- The Lucky Ones

From their long awaited new album Lost Loves. I like to call this band the Rush of he indie rock scene not because they write over worded intelligent lyrics and play souped up jazz, check your Rush collection bros!, but because MTB’s song structures are complex just like Rush’s. I didn’t say that was a bad thing!

Ty Segall- Manipulator

Segall’s impressive and large catalog just grows and grows with his prolific output. From his newest release comes this blazing guitar burning title track.

Alt-J – Hunger Of The Pine

Alt- j was a big surprise left field hit maker last year with their Tessellate single. Their new album finds them expanding out the out there but tuneful mantras. Hunger Of The Pine is a prime example. the tragic video fits the songs down tempo moody feel.

Nude Beach- I Can’t Keep the Tears From Falling

Nude Beach keep the sharp power pop going with their latest album aptly titled 77. Pick it up immediately.

Little Bastard- High For You

First off, great band name! Well done. Secondly great music with the down home jangly guitars and banjo Americana. Catchy as all get out.  Band to watch friends.

White Reaper- Cool

Awesome punkified blast from this youthful and energetic band. Will be another great band to keep an eye on.

Death Has No Dominion- Coming Like A Hurricane

Full of stunning atmospheric strumming and soaring guitars and more groove than you originally pick up on. Can’t wait to hear more from this promising band.

BRONCHO- Class Historian

Nice little power pop gem from this sprightly band. HAs an 80’s vibe splashed all over it like Drakkar cologne on your uncle.
