Morning Hype! Cinco de Mayo!

dugdugsfirst_2_
Today marks the 154th anniversary of Cinco de Mayo. It was this day in 1862 that 2000 members of the overmatched Mexican army dominated powerhouse French forces that numbered around 6000 in what is known as the Battle of Puebla. It was a case of “won the battle, lost the war” for Mexico, as the country was eventually overtaken and ruled by the French into 1867 before being liberated with help from their friends to the north. But The Battle of Puebla served as a rallying battle cry for Mexico during the war, uniting the nation and building strength in their resistance, and it now stands as a point of national pride. Republican nominees should take note.

Hands down, the best Mexican band I’ve ever heard is Dug Dug’s. Their 1972 album Smog is, in my opinion, a heavy psych masterpiece and their contributions to Mexican rock and roll should be as celebrated as Santana. Won’t happen, but it should. Echa un vistazo a continuacion!

Song of the Day: Outer Minds – We Are All Stone

outer minds

With a musical nod to L.A.’s famed Whiskey a Go Go circa ’67 and a visual nod to both Tim Burton movies and Tool videos from the mid nineties, Outer Minds have concocted one of the stranger music videos I have seen as of late. Filled with ghoulish, organ playing skeletons and hunchback monsters brooding over possible forbidden fruits, the stop motion video was filmed in both 16mm and 35mm film by Zebulon Medearis and Andrew Barker. It’s nice to see bands still putting quality effort into video releases instead of  just bowing and catering to the insta-gratification craving fan bases of today. Quality over quantity always wins. (And yes, I know I’m just as guilty as the next guy).

‘We Are All Stone’ can be found on the Chicago band’s 2012 album ‘Behind The Mirror’ and word is we can expect new tunes from the band later this year, which will hopefully lead to more tripped out visual aids as well. Turn down the lights and enjoy this one…

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.

New Tunes: Fat White Family – Wet, Hot Beef

fat white family

Everything I read about this London band Fat White Family seems to refer to how dirty they are how, how bad they smell or how shitty awesome they are. Don’t care. It’s raw, creepy psych rock and I fuckin’ like it. They released a full length called Champagne Holocaust earlier this year which I missed entirely until a week ago and more recently this three song collection entitled “Wet, Hot Beef” as a split with Taman Shud. It reminds of music we would’ve put on a mixtape back in the day before going to trip out in the woods somewhere, each of us making a tape based solely around trying to fuck everyone else’s night up. Not sure what liking this without needing massive amounts of whatever says about me today but as I eluded to earlier, don’t care. Like it.  Parts 1,2,and 3 are packaged into one easy, convenient to use video below.

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….

Morning Hype! Not Becoming A Cold Blooded Killer!

So for reasons that I cannot yet explain, I just sat through about thirty-five minutes of Charles Manson’s music that I came across while digging for tunes on Spotify. And hot damn, I fought the Manson charm off like a champ! I feel zero urge to commit any heinous crimes and now I’m pretty sure that my day will just continue on as normal. And by normal I mean going to the wine shop to get a couple of bottles of vino in anticipation of my friend Joel coming to visit tomorrow, as opposed to say,  going to an up and coming pregnant actresses house and killing her and all her friends. Quite rude. I think I’ve made wise choices today, and I’m proud of my mental strength. You should be too. Especially if you’re an up and coming pregnant actress….

This was the closest thing to a good song I came across…..

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…

Song of The Day: The Sharon Tate Experience – Christmas Killer

Apparently The Sharon Tate Experience are a one-time band forming to play the Rise Above Records 25th anniversary Party In London, England at the end of the month. Under the video post the label asks the question “Can you guess who this band is?” By most accounts, its the band who holds the #15 spot on Brick Background’s Top Twenty Albums list of 2013. Regardless of who it actually is though, this is really a great garage nugget and I certainly wouldn’t complain if more of the same was to come from “whoever it may be”…..

More from Rise Above Records right here
