Song of the Day: OBN IIIs – No Time for The Blues

obn iiis

You had better learn to like OBN IIIs and you had better do it quick because pretty soon all those “little shit cool kids” that you stare down your nose at in what “used to be” your favorite bar will be pumping this shit like it’s nobody’s business, especially not yours. And it won’t be your business. Because you’ll remember when you read this post and didn’t even bother to hit play and spend the 3:42 to become just a tad cooler of a human being, and oh, it will sting. Besides, the lead singer, Mr. Orville Bateman Neely III, will kick your ass if you don’t. And trust me, he will. I once saw him tell a crowd of about 500 Thee Oh Sees fans that he was gonna kick all their asses if they didn’t like his band and every single one of them left an OBN III enthusiast. No shit.

This is the new song off their upcoming third album Third Time To Charm, out May 27 on Tic Tac Totally. Start saving.

 

Here’s a ripper of a bonus track too: B-side off their debut 7″

New Tunes: Marvin Berry And the New Sound

marvin berry

All McFly jokes aside, Marvin Berry and the New Sound have some legitimate buzz around them right now and with due reason. Their debut full length comes out Feb 25th on Don Giovanni, their record release show is Feb 21st at Union Pool in Brooklyn with Liqour Store(more on those glorious bastards in the coming weeks) and to top it all off they’re actually really good, justifying the aforementioned hype that lately has seemingly been bestowed on pretty much any snot nosed kid that owns a guitar in Williamsburg. But here, high energy 60’s tinged garage rock mixed with a healthy dose of 70s Bomp Records worship and the recipe for good times is nearly perfected. Hoping for more tour dates soon but for now here’s three songs from the upcoming full length “Bootleg”. Power Rock!

Song of The Day: Death – North St.

Death Detroit

The nearly forgotten-forever band from Detroit that forced people to question the true origins of punk rock have unearthed some more material for another “new” album coming out in April, presumably found in a dusty closet and and apparently sat on since 1980. I had initial doubts when I first played it, assuming it would be more scratchy demos and outtakes not unlike their second release ‘Spiritual, Mental, Physical’ but instead I got an grim history lesson in late 70’s Detroit hood life enveloped by a primitive, guitar driven rock and roll. Another underground masterpiece to be released by Drag City? Fingers are crossed on this end….

New Tunes: Pink Mountaintops – North Hollywood Microwaves

jag250.11183v5

Well, this is certainly one way to announce your return. Stephen McBean is bringing back the sleazy, sexed -up Pink Mountaintops for the first time since 2009 and if the first single off the April 29th released “Get Back” is any indication then he certainly hasn’t forgotten how to sleaze or sex. “North Hollywood Microwaves” features Annie Hardy from Giant Drag along with a few references about anal sex, donkey punches and of course bear cum. Throw in some real smutty sax and this album, along with most everything else McBean and whoever he’s aligned himself with at any given time have ever released, will definitely not suck. Unless maybe you ask real nicely….

Record Release Hype! Jesus Sons!

jesus sons

The first Record of the Year candidate sees it release today and if you like music meant to fuel never ending road trips broken up by bouts of whiskey soaked ass shaking then you’ve come to the right place. Jesus Sons have crafted a record that already belongs in the annals of great rock n roll, a rather admirable achievement for a debut album. It supplies the possibilities of sound-tracking everything cool in life, from drinking alone in a dusty roadside bar at 2pm to shirtless motorbike joyrides through deserted city streets at 2am. With thick layers of riff after riff, howling harmonicas and pulsing bass lines there’s an almost filthy sex that oozes out of the speakers, like the leather jacket clad girl of your dreams biting her lip and sliding out of her jeans, staring you down and daring you to maintain eye contact. This album is proof that old fashioned rock n roll, GOOD rock n roll, can still represent what it set out to represent some fifty plus years ago: Danger, Sex, Sleaze and a serious lack of giving one single Fuck. If you’ve ever claimed rock and roll, you need this record.

Jesus Sons self titled debut comes out today on the quickly making a name for themselves Mock Records. You can listen to it below via Bandcamp while you decide which format to BUY IT in.

Weekend Hype! New Scott H. Biram!

Scott Biram Blood CD cover

The Dirty Old One Man Band is back! Nothin’ But Blood is the album, Feb 4th is the date, Bloodshot Records is the label and if you must know the H. stands for Fuck Off.  More country punk rock n roll blues and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Full tour dates can be found on his Facebook page. Seeing Scott live is pretty much required so don’t blow it.

New Tunes: Lorelle Meets The Obsolete

This is a great psych band I came across on Austin Psych Fest’s Facebook page who go by the name Lorelle Meets The Obsolete that I think are from Guadalajarda, Mexico. They have a new album coming Feb 17th called Chambers on Sonic Cathedral & Captcha Records. Pretty tripped out for the most part but they can definitely pick up the pace when they feel like it. Below is a track from the aforementioned Chambers LP as well as something from their 2013 7″  “What’s Holding You?” Good stuff so have a listen….

Afternoon Hype! Burgerama III! Sleep!

Holy moly mountain! Burger Records announced the lineup for their now annual Burgerama festival and it could be the heaviest one yet. I use the word heavy because legendary doomsters Sleep are all up in Burger’s business this year! There have been now confirmed rumblings of a new Sleep record for  some time now and though there’s no release date yet one can only hope/wonder if folks at Burgerama will be getting first taste of some long awaited jams. Throw in heavy hitters like Black Lips, The Dwarves and FIDLAR, not to mention the back from the dead proto punk of Death, something for the hip hop heads in the form of Kool Keith as well as what seems to be the majority of Burger Records signees and it makes for a festival that actually might be worth travelling for. No offense Coachella/Bonnaroo. Full band listings and some classic Sleep below…

Afternoon Hype! Those Darlins + Diarrhea Planet Dates

As mentioned earlier, a bunch of new tours have been getting announced in recent days and an intriguing one coming in Feb pits the sultry, if not a tad darker, Nashvillian rock and roll of Those Darlins on a co-headlining(?) bill with fellow home-towners Diarrhea Planet, the Pitchfork anointed “greatest live show on Earth”. The Boot And Saddle here in Philly have Those Darlins top billed so it should be interesting to see how the significantly more constrained, though no less talented, Darlins hit the stage after the straight from the garage, grimy three(four?!?) guitar spazz attack of Diarrhea Planet, assuming that is the case. Nevertheless, should be a good night all around with both bands supporting recently released records and at ten bucks you really can’t miss. The rest of the tour dates and some music are below…

THOSE DARLINS/DIARRHEA PLANET 2014 TOUR DATES

Friday Feb 14th – Raleigh, N.C. @ Kings

Saturday Feb 15th – Washington, D.C. @ Rock and Roll Hotel

Sunday Feb 16th – Brooklyn, N.Y. @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

Tuesday Feb 18th – Philadelphia, PA @ Boot And Saddle

Wednesday Feb 19th – Pittsburgh, PA @ Brillobox

Thursday Feb 20th – Columbus, OH @ Rumba Box

Friday Feb 21st – Bloomington, Ind @ The Bishop
