DREAM HAPPENING by Sea Pinks



Girls Names' former drummer officially left the band a while back to focus on then side project Sea Pinks and there's some great news about a sophomore LP from Sea Pinks that will be out on September 29 from CF Records.  'Dream Happening' is the first track to be featured from the Dreaming Tracks LP. Unfortunately, no pre-order yet.  And, if you haven't already heard the band's sold-out Exploded View EP from late last year, it is filled with four uplifting gems worth listening to over and over and over again.

YOU MADE ME DO THAT by Cruising


'You Made Me Do That' is the A-side of a sold out cassette single by Cruising from Dublin.  The release came from the UK label Soft Power Records in April.  In looking at the names of the band members you would wonder...WTF?  There is Benzedrine Black, Sex Grimes, Dan Handle, and Dick Vortex.  In reality, it's members of Girls Names, Sea Pinks, and September Girls flying undercover. The tune is an excellent example of some dirty, grimy, subterranean punk that you can't help but love.  Fittingly, the band takes its name from a gay exploitation serial killer film from 1980.  Check out the tune put to a scene from the film that will cause you to never look at Al Pacino in the same way again.

HEAVY HANDS by Twerps


Australia's Twerps have signed to Merge for U.S. distribution, and their new EP Underlay was just released yesterday so you should get it.  Vinyl copies are through Australia's Chapter Music label, but it appears it's a digital only release for the U.S., which sucks given the ridiculous shipping costs these days.  You can expect the band's second full-length in early 2015.

[on repeat] JACUZZI BOYS by Jacuzzi Boys

Domino Moon

This blog is only a little over three years old, but if there has been one constant since the beginning it's been my immediate love for Jacuzzi Boys. In fact, they were the third post on here...but fast forward to 2013 and the trio out of Miami that released their debut LP, No Seasons, in 2009 as just another band in the burgeoning garage scene has branched out with the release of their third LP, which is self-titled and released yesterday from Hardly Art Records. Their excellent 2nd LP, Glazin', from 2011 polished up the lo-fi sounds from the debut and maintained the high level of vintage garage energy, but the new LP sees them setting their dependence on the standard garage pop hook to the background to highlight a more crafted cleaner, focus on the songs, sounds and tempos. There's no denying that Jacuzzi Boys are associated as a fun, energetic party sound, but on this record in particular there are more moments where they ease up on the throttle a bit with varied grooves, a cooler laid back pace, and slick production that clearly sets a focus on the mood of each song. The 'Boys' are clearly growing up and it's turning into a wonderful thing. It was clearly obvious after the entrancing lead single, 'Double Vision,' was released a couple months ago in advance of the LP. They will be coming to L.A. on October 15 with King Tuff at The Echo, which is definitely a show that should not be missed (tickets).

[on repeat] MOZES AND THE FIRSTBORN by Mozes and The Firstborn


Bloodsucker


Mozes and the Firstborn are a four-piece out of Belgium that are currently on tour in support of their eclectic and addictively fun self-titled debut LP released this past spring. The tour just recently brought them through three stops in L.A. and O.C. last week where fans were treated with their creative blend of indie psych rock that blends influences ranging from The Beatles and The Stones to 90's college favorites The La's. The release is available on cassette via the mega-cassette folks over at Burger Records where a domestic vinyl release is  supposed to be in the works and definitely worthy of your time. Europe's vinyl release has already been taken care of through TopNotch Records, but you're better off waiting for a domestic release. If you're more of the digital persuasion get over to their Bandcamp where the LP is currently 'Name Your Price' and really shouldn't be (...and probably won't be for long). Check out their remaining U.S. tour dates through the southwest, Texas, and along the east coast at their website

[on repeat] WEIRD SISTER by Joanna Gruesome

Secret Surprise

Sugarcrush

It's rare for a band name to mimic its expression of sound. 'Joanna' seems innocent enough, and 'Gruesome' requires no real explanation. Together, Joanna Gruesome are a Welsh quintet that take a piece of the vocal style and melodies of Veronica Falls, masking unscrupulous lyrics, and then crushing into blasts of some of the nicest noise pop you've ever heard that blend influences from Riot Grrrl, C86, and K Records. The band's debut LP, Weird Sister, comes out September 10 on Veronica Falls home of Slumberland Records (Fortuna POP! Records in the UK). 'Sugarcrush' is a track off the LP that fully exemplifies this description. From the beginning you're listening to some sweet, sugary, indie pop that will lead you down the path of assuming you're listening to another ol' twee album...before it explodes into a purgative of guitar force and agression that may leave you wondering if the track didn't accidentally skip over to another LP. However, it's a good thing. Once you get a taste of Joanna Gruesome, the melding of seemingly opposite forces makes more sense than most would think...for the perfect blend of ying and yang. It's a MUST for any fan of fueled-up, indie rock. Pre-order it here and check out previous 7" and EP releases at Bandcamp.
