The New: 09.11.12

Some “New” stuff from Cemeteries, The Dandelion War, Peace, The Presets, Santah, Sassparilla, and Silent Rider.

Cemeteries– “The Wilderness”
from The Wilderness
(Lefse Records)
Release date: October 23, 2012
Breathtaking dream pop from the wilds outside of Buffalo. We’re really looking forward to this new album.

The Dandelion War“Drifters”
from We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes
(Deep Elm Records)
Release Date: September 12, 2012
This indie rock quintet from Oakland, CA formed by connecting through Craigslist.  We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes is their second album, and we feature “Drifters” an ambitious post rock anthem ripe with atmosphere.

Peace “Your Hand in Mine”
from The World Is Too Much With Us
(Suicide Squeeze)
Release date: October 16, 2012
This track is reminiscent of the post-punk stuff that surfaced out of the UK in the late 70s and early 80s. Not quite the Smiths or Joy Division, but you get a solid feel for that era with this single. This marks their second album in as many years. Expect this group of Canadians to invade the US this fall and into the winter.

The Presets – “Ghosts”
from Pacifica
(Modular Recordings)
Release date: September 10, 2012
Dynamic synth pop that sure to get remixed and played at every club you can imagine. This gorgeous video was directed by Abteen Bagheri.


Santah – “Indigo”
from You’re Still a Lover
(saki Records)
Release date: October 16, 2012
This Chicago-based outfit has mixes classic sounds with post-rock flair. “Indigo” is the type of track that Marty McFly should have played at the “Enchantment Under Sea Dance.” It would have only elicited a few strange looks. You can also peep and order the track, “Springfield”, here.

Sassparilla – “Threadbare”
from Magpie
Release date: October 23, 2012
Imagine if Wilco, George Harrison, and Cracker decided to combine their efforts, that’s what the down-on-your-luck “Threadbare” approaches. More fun than bummer, Sassparilla knows how to drive a groove.

Silent Rider“I Was A Bomb”
from Silent Rider
(Self-Released)
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Brooklyn-based electronic producer, Reed Kackley, is Silent Rider. is style stitches together bits and pieces of several genres, often utilizing melodramatic vocals, swelling synths, somber piano tones, heavy basslines, and concise, hard-hitting drums. “I Was a Bomb” is a haunting and enchanting electronic dream pop.

Cheers…
