New Music November ’14

1 Nov



Well goodness, November already. Pretty soon I’ll be digging back through the large pile of music from the past year for the best of list. But that’s then and this is now. Remember to visit the site and if you are a musician, in a band, own a venue or club sign up to use it’s tools to help you along the way. now on to the tunes!

MelvinsYou Can Make Me Wait

What is this? A new direction for the long time sludge rockers? Probably not. Butthole Surfer’s Paul Leary and Jeff Pinkus aid the band on this one.

Ultramantis Black- West Siberian Plain

Pro wrestler Ultramantis Black doubles as this band’s leader as well. It’s as bruising as a no holds barred match.

U137- Watching The Storm

Great instrumental track from the band’s debut album Dreamer On The Run.

A$AP Ferg, Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs- Old English

Ferg, Gibbs and Young Thug lay down a stinted trap based track with straight flows for a deeply satisfying listen.

Robyn Hitchcock- San Francisco Patrol

Hitchcock just keeps releasing great albums and songs year after year. His latest The Man Upstairs is a low key affair with more acoustic based tracks. Here he lifts a line from Damien Rice to make a piercingly effective song.

Roadkill Ghost Choir– Slow Knife

this band is one of the better finds of the past year. Was glad I got to catch them at this year’s Loufest.

Sean Rowe- Madman

Just recently discovered this amazing singer songwriter and his deep voice of wonder. you should check him out as well.

Athletics- III

This quintet from Asbury Park, NJ. has a new album out Who You Are Is Not Enough and it’s my favorite album right now. The slow unwinding intricate composition’s and emotional build ups are very impressive. Attention must be paid!

The Juan Maclean- I’ve Waited For So Long

DFA records veteran John Maclean has added the services of Nancy Whang, another DFA vet formerly with LCD Soundsystem to officially become a duo. The duo have put out some pretty concise dance rock with the new release In A Dream.

Youth Code- Consuming Guilt

L.A. industrial duo have a new single that slams and pummels with a corrosive force. Much like Nitzer Ebb did back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It’s definitely in your face and full of aggression. The video’s full of disturbing images so watch at your own discretion!

Kevin Morby- All Of My Life

Great track from the singer songwriter.

The Blind Shake- Parachute/ Breakfast Of Failures

Fantastic new ground shaking garage punk from this Minneapolis trio. Will be on your radar very soon.


Sunn 0)))/Scott Walker- Brando

One of the most interesting match ups of the year is this pairing of the drone metal band and the vocalist Walker. For the more adventurous listener The album Soused is highly recommended.

Jamie xx- All Under One Roof Raving

Jamie xx takes us on a trip backwards through the annals of dance music with this mesmerizing track.

The Bots- All I Really Want

Super catchy new song from the new album Pink Palms. This is another great rising band!
