tortoise “gesceap”


howdy! honestly, this is the first year in prob 20 years that i haven’t kept up with much new music. much like a relationship, there’s been a bit of burnout, and in my advancing years i cant keep up like i once did. anyway, one of my favorite bands, tortoise, has a new record coming out on 1.22 entitled “the catastrophist.”

jill andrews “get up, get on” video

jill is half responsible for one of my favorite records ever, the everybodyfields’ nothing is okay, but this is really nothing like that record, but i’ll be damned if this isnt a damn fine piece of music. looking back im on the fence about her debut record, but this one, the war inside, is a totally different experience. definitely one of my favorites of the year. this video is brilliant in my drunken opinion.

ringo deathstarr “guilt”

Ringo Deathstarr new

evening. saw a buddy listening to ringo deathstarr’s god’s dream on spotify the other day, and i was bored so decided to listen to it. thought it was new cause spotify it said it 2015, but obviously that was when it was added to said service. it was released in 2013, i believe. either way, god’s dream is totally fucking awesome. if you like my bloody valentine, the smiths, etc, etc you’ll definitely dig this record. havent listened to their other stuff so cant vouch for it. they have a new record coming out in next month entitled pure mood.

buy god’s dream via their bandcamp page

off god’s dream

aaron lee tasjan “the trouble with drinkin”


holy crap this song is great, and from what i have heard from some of the rest of aaron’s new record in the blazes, everything sounds pretty fuckin spectacular. read more about said record here via no depression. the record came out 10.6 and you can pick it up via his bandcamp site.

los lobos “made to break your heart”


hey! los lobos has a new record out called gates of gold, but i havent heard it yet. i have this heard this song though, and its pretty great, just like everything they do. if there were a band that i wish more people were into it would be los lobos. they’ve been putting out fantastic records for more than 30 years, if my brain is doing math correctly. if i were to recommend one los lobos record to you, it would have to be kiko, which is one of my favorite records ever. its fucking brilliant. looking forward to checking this one out. xoxoxo

buy it via amazon or your local shop
