lions in the street “mine aint yours”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

lits

lions in the street is one of them bands i wish i heard more from, but still, i love everything i have heard no matter the frequency of their output. they have a new record out, which i am just listening to, and its called just a little bit more. if you like loud rock n roll records with some tints of country, ala the stones, there is no reason in the world you wouldnt love this record, or anything these guys have put out. you can actually grab the record for “free” via noisetrade, but i highly, highly recommend throwing em some cash. shit is definitely worth it.

the lake poets is martin longstaff and he just released his debute ep honest hearts a mere two days ago. i know i have written about martin/the lake poets before, and thus this surprises me that this is his debut. i quite like martin’s style, and from what i have read on the twitters, he puts on a helluva show. i look forward to hearing this ep in its entirety.

follow lake poets on twitter or “like” em on facebook

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.

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
