The Morning Mail 14-Nov-12

Good morning! Sights and sounds from the likes of Lilac, Purity Ring, Caitlin Rose, She Ripped, Teen Mom, and Veronica Falls. Enjoy!


“Tarot” and “Go Your Own Way”
from No Exit 
out 19 November on Different Fur Records
The Bay area quartet releases their second LP next week via iTunes. On “Tarot”, Kristen Knick entices you to learn your fate. It’s a balanced effort that sounds a bit like Hole from their Live Through This period. “Go Your Own Way” is a bit livelier and slightly more twee in its approach. You can stream the entire album here.


“Go Your Own Way”

Caitlin Rose – “No One To Call”
from The Stand-in
out 25 February 2013 on Names Records
Tinges of country and pop color this track that updates the idea of looking for love and striking out.

She Ripped – “Garage Night”
Single w/ b-side “And We Know” (Live)
out now on Bandcamp
She Ripped release “Garage Night” or “Night of the Garage” or “Gas Station Night” to celebrate five years together. The single is available as a free download through Bandcamp and includes the b-side “And We Know” from a live performance. There’s something and nothing to this song. Something lies sinister or maybe it’s paranoia or maybe it’s nothing at all in this walk by a local gas station garage.

Teen Mom – “You and Me”
from Mean Tom 12″
out 27 November on Analog Edition
DC-based indie rockers are making a splash with singles and videos emerging from their Mean Tom EP. Teen Mom’s brand of jangle pop has a bit more fuzz than the UK brand, and we like it. You can download “You and Me.” Check out the video for “I Wanna Go Out” below. If you like what you hear, why not pre-order the Mean Tom, here.

Veronica Falls – “Teenage”
from Waiting For Something To Happen
out 13 February 2013 on Slumberland/Bella Union
Veronica Falls is bathed in jangle pop goodness on “Teenage.”


Purity Ring – “Lofticries”
from Shrines
out now on 4AD/Last Gang Records
Director AG Rojas takes us on a bizarre, mysterious walk. Alien birth? perhaps we need to watch again. If you haven’t peeped the LP, Shrines, yet, it’s worth a spin or twelve.  It grows with each play.

Teen Mom – “You and Me”
from Mean Tom 12″
out 27 November on Analog Edition
I could listen to this song spin and spin and spin. Highly recommended if you enjoy the jangle pop genre.
