hail mary mallon – bestiary (album stream)

Posted by gregor on Friday, November 7th, 2014

i dont listen to too much new hip hop, but when i do aesop rock usually has a hand in it, somehow. hail mary mallon is aesop and rob sonic and dj big wiz. this record is hot as fuck! prob the best hip hop record ive heard well probably since the last aesop record. i would be lying if i didnt find myself zoning out to watching whoever play donkey kong. check rhymesayers for all the details.

fire mountain “doing fine”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, November 6th, 2014

fire

i know it may seem like everything i “write” about is awesome, its only cause it is. i dont waste my time with crap, its been this way for 9 years, and hopefully will be continuing that tradition for at least a few more years to come. anyway, again, way late to the party on mentioning this record, but fire mountain’s debut, all dies down, has been one of my go to records for the past 4/5 months. its a southern record that isnt…. sure its got its roots in the south, but it is borderless. its just a damn fine rock record. i mean, cmon i hear a xylophone, i think, how many southern rock records can you hear said instrument? one thing i love about this record, is that it is not pigeon holed into one constraint of a certain genre, and i hope they continue to “really explore the studio space” – google it. how about this, fire mountain, you make all dies down, then you make a double record. i think you have it in you! definitely a band i have huge hopes for.

buy all dies down via bandcamp, follow them on the twitter and “like” them on the facebook

the persian leaps “firestarter” and “pretty boy” – video

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

persian

well hold up here! hold up a god damn second! st paul’s the persian leaps are killing my little brain this morning, or by the time i finish these possibly 6-10 sentences it will be afternoon, cause thats how long it takes me to do stuff. either way, they got a new ep out entitled drive drive delay and this thing is freaking awesome! c’mon the first song “firestarter” sounds like something gbv would have put out during the propeller-era. shit the entire thing is pure fuzzy pop greatness. my only complaint is its over way too quickly, i need, and demand more! they do have two other releases that i shall be checking out asap, and i recommend you do the same. srsly if you dig teenage fanclub, gbv, the smiths, 90’s fuzz pop, etc you shall love these guys. def the best ep ive heard this year. btw, they’re playing some shows around minny make sure you check em out.

buy drive drive delay via their bandcamp page, follow them on twitter and like em on facebook

dtcv “in the sun” video premiere – blondie cover

Posted by gregor on Monday, November 3rd, 2014

if you’ve frequented these pages over the past few years, dtcv, or detective as they used to be known by, will be no strangers to you. if you have no idea who they are, they are james greer, ex-gbv, the lovely tones of guylaine vivarat and chris dunn, and they’ve put out a couple killer eps, basket of masks and very fallen world and also have a compilation of early material entitled the early year, and a 2013 release hilarious heaven. the latter kinda pisses me off, cause i didnt even know it existed! even more evidence that i need a damn intern. they have a new record coming in out in ’15 entitled uptime, and yeah its freaking awesome. oh, and this killer blondie cover is on their 7″ single entitled part time punks, which you can purchase down there.

buy part time punks in either 7″ or digital form via their bandcamp page, like them on facebook, follow em on twitter

american thread “enjoy the road”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

thread

boston’s american thread has got a new record out, their sophomore, entitled, songs in the war, and its a good ‘un. if were to generalize geographical regions and their musical output, they do not sound as if they were straight outta boston. stupid generalizations! anyway, my first listen to songs in the war really reminded me of a little band that came out of arizona, dead hot workshop, and their record 1001, which was one of my favorite records of the 90s. with that being said, this is a super good record – as i alluded to in the first sentence. they are also couch by couchwest alums, so you know they’re solid folks. highly recommended if you dig the rollicking americana stuff, like i do.

buy songs in the war via their bandcamp page for a measly 5 bucks, like them on facebook, follow them on twitter

the holy ghost electric show “pisgah”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

holy

happy sunday fools! we moved this past week so its been a wee bit hectic over in van dyke land. if you follow me on twitter you’ve probably heard some of the many stories i have shared about my old neighborhood, which were sometimes hilarious and sometimes frightening. either way, we are now living in idyllic area of baton rouge.

so, im probably 3 or 4 months behind talking about these gents out of oxford, ms called the holy ghost electric show and, what i believe is their debut, the great american holy ghost record show. ive been really digging into it the past couple weeks. this record is really hard to pin down, sometimes its a pretty stright forward rock record, then there are moments of “where did the hell did this come from?” definitely a lot of influences going on here, which sometimes can mean a straight up mess of a record, but in the case of the great american… they know how to take said influences, and make them their own. definitely a top record of 2014.

buy it via their bandcamp page / follow them on twitter, like them on facebook
