dtcv “in the sun” video premiere – blondie cover

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

strand of oaks “jm” and “shut in” via out of town films

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 how i feel about mr showalter aka strand of oaks. i have loved, deeply, all his releases, but listen to them back to back and it all begins to make a bit of sense. every record, alone, stands on its own merits or awesomeness, but as a whole… he’s not a one off kind of artist, you have to listen to everything. eh whatever… just watch these two videos.. “jm” is his tribute to jason molina, btw.
