The Morning Mail: 06-Nov-12

The Morning Mail has arrived and we’re featuring sundry sights and sounds from the likes of Dr. DeVito, Eugene Francis Jnr, Miner, and Bambi Lee Savage. Enjoy!


Dr. DeVito – “Yellow Belly
from Sno-Cones (EP)
out now on Bandcamp
Dr. DeVito is an unsigned act out of Bakersfield with surf and garage rock influences. The Sno-Cones EP stays true to the “lo-fi, ’til we die” mantra, while showing a nice touch on lighter fare found on “Yellow Belly.” It’s a fun album that can be picked up as a free digital download on Bandcamp. Or you can throw them $4 and get one of their nifty hand-painted CDs with self-illustrated sleeves.

Dr. DeVito is looking to pick up some shows in California. They are based out of Bakersfield and are willing to travel. Contact them at drdevitomusic gmail dot com.

Eugene Francis Jnr – “Calliope Fuxwar”
from Death and Das Love Bytes
out March 2013
This single will be released 12 November from “all good digital stores.”  Big electronic beats and interesting melodies pervade this track.  Admittedly, this is my first exposure to Eugene Francis Jnr, and I like it. Check out his SoundCloud page for more. Check out the video for “Calliope Fuxwar” below.

Miner – “Golden Ocean”
from Hey Love
currently available at shows only 
There’s a laid back confidence to Miner’s music. It’s easy going, Americana infused indie pop that generates good feelings while stating we’re here and prepared to stay awhile. Check out the video and link for “Hey Love” below.

They are playing ECHO in Los Angeles this Thursday, November 8. You can check the details for that show here and here. While you’re at it, follow Miner on Facebook.

Bambi Lee Savage – Oh Loneliness” [via]
from Darkness Overshadowed

out 13 November 
A singer-songwriter who has spent more time behind the scenes as a producer and songwriter, Bambi Lee Savage is preparing to release her third solo album next week. Her quiet, sultry voice flutters above reverb-rich guitars. It reminds me of driving west through the dusty roads of Texas and New Mexico en route to the California and eventually the Pacific Ocean. Watch the video for “Nearly Gone” below.
