Some “new” for you… forgive the loose interpretations, summer is here.
Bailterspace – “No Sense”
from Strobosphere out 8/21
The deep melancholia of “No Sense” is buffered by an entrancing, drone of a guitar groove that will make you think you’re listening to a deep cut from an old psych rock album. We want to hear more.
Cat Power – “Ruin” (mp3)
from Sun out 9/4 on Matador
She’s back! It’s been six years long years since Chan Marshall released an album. “Ruin” is a bit subdued, a bit bouncier than what we’ve come to expect, but it still whets the appetite. Bring it on…
Height with Friends –
“I Can’t Stand to Be Refused”
from Rock and Roll out 8/14
HWF’s hipster “hip hop” will have you licking your chops or wanting to sample the rhythm guitar lick that keeps turning like chicken at your favorite rotisserie place.
Tidelands – “The New Black”
from We’ve Got a Map out 8/7
Strong lyrics, a groovy (yep, groovy baby!) vibe, and a pervasive, crunchy guitar lick will help you reach nirvana while yearning for the visceral. Yep, we’re talking contrasts…Seriously, it’s groovy.
