neko case and kelly hogan “these arent the droids”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

droids

this here neko case and kelly hogan masterpiece debuted on paste the other day, but due to my complete and utter hatred for said site, i really havent mentioned it. its probably one of the greatest things ive ever heard. if you wanna read more about the record, 2776, read about it her via consequence of sound. the album is up for pre-sale on cd baby and features a whole bunch of awesome folks like aimee mann, will forte+aubrey plaza+martha plimpton, yo la tengo, horatio sanz, andrew wk, etc, etc… sure most of y’all have heard it already, but what the hell?

miss shevaughn & yuma wray “drifters compass” video

Posted by gregor on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

kinda of sad i am just now posting this video off miss shevaughn & yuma wray’s most excellent sophomore record, lean into the wind. their 2012, we’re from here, was one of my favorites from that year, but sadly i lost about 6-8 months worth of posts during the great “hosting company went under and screwed me” debacle of 2012. either way, both records are super awesome, and cant recommend them enough. this one will definitely end up somewhere in my favorite records of 2014. btw, this video was partially taken at their actual wedding, which they were kind of enough to share with us at couch by couchwest. ive posted a couple down yonder, there were a total of 5 which you can find here.

buy lean into the wind via their bandcamp page.

brian jonestown massacre “what you isn’t”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

bjm

me and brian jonestown massacre have a long, sordid history. immediately falling in love when i first heard thank god for mental illness back in 96, then falling out of love with a couple suspect releases, then falling back in love, etc, etc, etc… i dont think i have loved and hated a band as much as i do brian jonestown massacre. i guess thats sort of their appeal? its better than being completely indifferent? revelation is, surprisingly, the 14th massacre record and was completely recorded in anton’s studio in berlin, where he now lives. diggin this track, hopefully will dig the whole thing, but if history has anything to say about it…

drunken ramblings: hallelujah the hills’ have you ever done something evil

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 29th, 2014

hills

hallelujah the hills….. so here we are again. your 2012 record, no one knows what happens next, ended up at number 3 on my favorite records of that year. looking back, knowing what i know now about that record, it maybe should’ve been number one. you know why? i still listen to it all the fucking time. here’s their deal, you may listen to one of their records, once. thats fine, you do whatever you want, but if you’re paying attention at all, you’ll realize something is there, and you’ll keep coming back. they make music that is equivalent to crack. i have never tried crack, but ive seen some documentaries, so im pretty much an expert. that first listen, it will burrow into your brain, or soul, or wherever you keep the precious. you probably wont even realize that it has happened, and thats the beauty of hallelujah the hills. that first time, you may not be impressed, but theres that hook, or lyric that will bring you back. then from there, its not one lyric, its 10, its not one hook, but 20…. this has been my experience with this band. their newest, and definitely greatest, have you ever done something evil, admittedly took about 3/4 listens to understand and its no way as immediately as “accessible” as “no one…” but its in the fucking sauce! they are not a band you’re just going to throw on for a good time, even though its a hell of a ride, they just aint that kind of band. ryan walsh is a master lyricist, his lyrics may seem to mean nothing, sometimes at least, but they can absolutely crush you. you can look at it, and so “oh thats nice” or look a little longer, and be like “holy shit!” i think i said last year that they were hitting their stride, but with this record, i will say they are pulling away from just about every band out there. if it doesnt continue to be and end up my favorite record of the year, i would be so very very very surprised.

buy have you ever done something evil via their bandcamp page / like em on facebook or follow on twitter

pinebocks “lena”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

lena

according to their twitter bio, pinebocks, are chicago’s worst band, and the best band in the world. no matter how you look/listen to pinebocks, they make some damn fine music. well, they’ve, managed to at least make 2 great songs. i may even be able to do that, so its not really saying all that much, but i trust their talent more than mine. they just release a two song something via their bandcamp page, and i cant recommend it enough. you can pay 500 bucks for the two songs, perks includeded!, or if youre a cheap ass you can download it for free. they’re playing at one of my old favorite haunts, beat kitchen on 6.17. if youre in the area, do check them out.

circulatory system “stars and molecules”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 26th, 2014

circ

pretty excited about this release, circulatory system’s mosiacs within mosiacs which is due out on 6.24 on cloud recordings. been a huge fan of all three of their previous releases, but even moreso of will cullen hart’s previous band, olivia tremor control. keep in mind thats not taking anything away from what he’s done with circulatory system, but olivia’s black foilage and music from the unrealized film script, dusk at cubist castle are both epic records. if you’ve never heard either, check out “i have floated” down there, and i recommend listening with headphones. anyway, circulatory system is also going to be on tour with neutral milk hotel this summer so make sure you check out the cloud recordings website.
