captains dead’s favorite records of the year, part 1 of 3

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

hills

today, im just doing my favorite record of the year, and it really should come as no surprise to anyone. that may be assuming way too much, but i have talked about this record a lot whether it be here, twitter, facebook, etc… i love this record as if it was my own stepchild. admittedly, my first go around with have you ever done something evil as not all what i expected. i wanted to be blown away, but i was left a little flat. maybe it was my mood, my expectations, my soberness or too much beer? who the hell knows? this was my problem, not theirs, though. i wrote a drunken ramblings piece on it back in may which pretty much sums everything up, in a absolutely incoherent way. feel free to read that or dont, it dont matter. what does matter is that this is the finest record i have heard this year, last year, and maybe the last 5 years? its pretty much as close to perfect as any band/artist could ever hope to get.

oh, so im going to finish up top twenty in two more posts probably later this week.

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

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.

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
