New Tunes! Red Hot Chili Peppers!

preview-rhcp2

Here’s the first track off the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, The Getaway. It doesn’t suck, which is what I expected. And more importantly, it doesn’t sound like another Stadium Arcadium rehash, which is more than the last few years of Chili Peppers music can claim. Kinda sounds like wandering around L.A.at night. Fitting, I suppose. We’ll see how the rest of the album plays out, but this is a good start for a band that has amazed as much as it has depressed.

New Tunes! Broncho: Senorita Borealis

broncho-seora-borealis-6239451-1460516067

While, admittedly, Oklahoma’s Broncho always left me wanting a little more than what was presented, I have to admit this new track kinda gives me what I want. And who doesn’t like getting what they want? Part T-Rex, part B.R.M.C., this is one of those tracks that makes me wish I still smoked in dark bars at ungodly hours of the night. Those night were always the best nights.

New Tunes: GØGGS

GØGGS cover

Three of my favorites in recent years have gotten together to get heavy. Garage rock overlord Ty Segall has teamed up with long time partner in crime Chris Moothart, he of Fuzz fame, and Chris Shaw, who fronts the refreshingly angry Ex-Cult. They are calling themselves GØGGS, and with the help of ruling label In The Red Records, will be blasting us with a full LP’s worth of music this July. Here’s a taste…

Morning Hype! King Gizzard’s Coming In HOT!

king gizzard

“It’s supposed to be their heaviest album yet.”

Those eight words will always make my ears perk up, but when they reference a band whose latest release was chock full of flutes and clarinets, they tend to echo just a tad louder. Don’t get me wrong, King Gizzard and Lizard Wizard’s most recent offering, Paper Mache Dream Balloon is a satisfying, if not ethereal, journey through the more mellow vibrations of pop psychedelia, but frankly, it just doesn’t rip. And I like ripping. So when I opened my inbox and found their new, soon to be released opus Nonagon Infinity waiting for me, those eight words rang loud. And my God, were they ever an understatement. The first song explodes into the speakers, seemingly mid chord, and from there it simply just does not slow down. A nine song, full blast heavy psych assault on the listener’s aural comfort. Each song is seamlessly blended into the next, creating an infinity loop of pure psychedelic riff rock that just begs to be left on. And on, and on and on. The onslaught begins April 29th. Tour dates below. Prepare yourself.

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″

Morning Hype! Solo King Buzzo!

I have to say that when it was announced that Melvins head honcho Buzz Osborne(King Buzzo) was releasing a solo 10″ acoustic album with a tour to follow(or is it the other way around?) my interest level was about equal to my hearing that Pat Boone was doing an album of metal covers. I like my Melvins heavy, sludgy and without restraint, none of which I particularly associate with unplugged acoustic records .But then, like a good little music fan, I put my biases aside and holy shit wouldn’t you know it; the first single is actually pretty fuckin good and now serves a great little teaser to what may or may not lie ahead for The King Of Sludge. Turns out opening your mind a little bit CAN be a good thing. Who knew?

Feb. 25 Los Angeles, CA Scion Rock Show @ The Satellite
March 2 Minneapolis, MN Grumpy’s
March 6 Omaha, NE The Waiting Room

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….

Song Of The Day: The Shrine – Nothing Forever

11183_JKT

I’ll be the first to admit that I generally dig The Shrine a lot more live than I do listening to them at home or on the headphones but that may be soon to change with this sick new jam coming off the upcoming release “Bless Off”, out March 11th on Tee Pee Records. Starts with some serious Sabbath worship before digressing into the classic 80s style thrash that dominated the first album. A mid track return to the altar of Sabbath breaks shit down proper and leads into a one-arm-up neckbreaker of a finish. Skate rock done near perfect. Here’s hoping the rest of the album can hold up because if it does summer at FDR skatepark may already be sound-tracked….
