  • Quickdraw: TRAAMS, Franz Ferdinand, Jacuzzi Boys, Coke Weed, Au Revoir Simone MP3

    Today’s music just wants your love.  Enjoy. :TRAAMS – Low:  I saw a note that mentioned how TRAAMS like to refer to their music as “wonky pop.”  I would maybe consider going with “wonky garage pop.”  The band will release the Ladders EP tomorrow via FatCat Records.  A full length is expected at some point in September. :Franz Ferdinand – Right Action:  I...

  • Delorean MP3

    If I want to listen to something that’s refreshing and will help clear my head, I often go with Delorean.  They have such a lush sound, and I love the way it swirls around a room.  In other words, I’m excited for their new full length.  It’s titled Apar and it will be out on September 10 via True Panther.  Enjoy. :Delorean – Spirit:  The press release notes that Delorean ha...

  • Milk Music, Destruction Unit (Dan) MP3

    Looking forward to tomorrow night’s show at the Mohawk with Mikal Cronin, Shannon And The Clams, A Giant Dog, and Sweet Talk? I know I am. It’s a damn sweet lineup, but it’s not the only upcoming show with a killer bill of garage and psych rock bands! On Saturday night Milk Music and Destruction Unit hit Beerland for what I predict will be the best show of the entire weekend. I first learned of ...

  • Quickdraw: Kitty, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Gold Lake, Pond, Edward Sharpe MP3

    Today’s music would like for you to step things up around the office.  Enjoy. :Kitty – Barbie Jeep:  Adult Swim’s Summer Singles Program is back, and this catchy, attitude-filled little number from Kitty is apart of it.  I think it might be time to start paying more attention to her.  Check out the other free tunes in the series here. :Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – N...

  • Zoe Knows Life MP3

    “Life.” Sometimes life is great; like when Thundercloud Subs opens up just a few blocks away and you eat delicious avocado sandwiches. Sometimes like is rough; like when the Spurs lose and you see Tim Duncan’s sad, sad face. It’s been a week of highs and lows; it’s been a week of saying life in that way so that you can just hear the quotation marks around it. Life is, unsurprisingly,...

  • Jack Wilson, Tele Novella, The Black And White Years, Golden Bear, The Plastic Habit (Jennifer) MP3

    Tomorrow singer/songwriter Jack Wilson is holding a record release party at The Mohawk.  His new album, Spare Key, was released last month on Fluff And Gravy Records. He writes raw, emotive songs that reflect on many of his personal experiences and journeys. His musical influences touch on folk and Americana, but you can also recognize more melodic pop influences ranging from The Beach Boys t...

  • Okkervil River MP3

    I never really could figure out what to think of Will Sheff’s Lovestreams side project, so I’m kind of happy to see him getting back to business with Okkervil River.  The sort of Austin band will release a new album titled The Silver Gymnasium on September 3 via ATO Records.  Enjoy. :Okkervil River – It Was My Season:  This is easily my favorite Okkervil River song since 2008′s Lo...

  • Quickdraw: King Kahn And The Shrines, Big Scary, Smith Westerns, Superhumanoids, Dinosaur Bones MP3

    Today’s music is not a fan of your significant other.  Enjoy. :King Kahn And The Shrines – Born To Die:  This track has the psychedelic soul approach that I’ve come to expect from King Kahn And The Shrines, but I’m a bit surprised at how tame it is.  Maybe they rip things up more on the actual album?  Merge will put out Idle No More on September 3. :Big Scary – Luck Now...

  • Black Joe Lewis MP3

    Looks like Austin’s Black Joe Lewis is ready to get back into the swing of things – he’s signed to Vagrant, readied a new album, and lined up a bunch of tour dates.  Awesome.  The new LP is titled Electric Slave, and it’ll be available for you to own on August 27.  If you’re local, you can catch him (and his Honeybears) for free at KGSR’s Blues On The Green on June ...

  • Hundred Visions (Dan) MP3

    I saw Hundred Visions twice at SXSW, and they ended up being my favorite act at the festival. At each show I was asked, “Who are these guys again? They’re really good.” Damn straight. They totally rocked out, but the tunes were still catchy and even danceable. You can’t help but want to jump up and down and sing along. Last year the group put out their first LP, Permanent Basement. The reco...

    Bosnian Rainbows are suddenly all up in my face.  I very recently saw them play (with Zorch), and now here I am sharing the Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Teri Gender Bender collaboration’s new single.  I suppose worse things have happened.  Jump below for the track.  The band will put out their self titled debut on June 25 via Sargent House.  Enjoy. :Bosnian Rainbows – Morning Sickness:  T...

    Today’s music didn’t mean what it said.  Enjoy. :Action Bronson – The Rockers (Featuring Wiz Khalifa):  The collaboration between Action Bronson and producer Harry Fraud is one that totally approve of.  Strictly 4 My Jeeps is a fun song, and now there’s this “slow-burning” gem to go along with it.  The duo’s Saab Stories EP is due out tomorrow. :Lightning Du...

  • Zorch MP3

    I’ve liked Austin’s Zorch for a while now, but it wasn’t until their recent show with Bosnian Rainbows (Omar Rodriguez-Lopez’s new band) that I actually got to see them play.  What a fun time.  The duo are crazy energetic, and they made me want to run around and high five people.  On July 23 they’ll release a new album through Sargent House titled Zzoorrcchh.  Enjoy. :Z...

  • The Mantles (Noah) MP3

    The Mantles confuse me. This isn’t surprising, I’m easily confused, but in terms of San Francisco musical talents, The Mantles probably confuse me the most. I blame this almost entirely on a lengthy period in both my musical adoration and the San Francisco scene’s evolution where everything (at least everything I was getting pumped in to my ears) was loosely defined as “garage rock”....

  • The Sour Notes (Single Premiere) MP3

    Austin’s The Sour Notes have long been a favorite of mine.  So much so in fact that they were the first band I reached out to when I decided to put together a 30th birthday show for myself.  They said yes, and this Thursday at Holy Mountain they’ll be playing at 11pm. The progressive pop act won’t just be celebrating some blogger getting another year older, though, they’ll also be r...

    Today’s music is brought to you by me.  Enjoy. :Bass Drum Of Death – Crawling:  This fuzzy track is loud and catchy, and I really like it.  If you’re feeling like you may soon need a new rock record to soundtrack your summer, I think Bass Drum Of Death may be able to deliver.   The band will release their self titled album on June 25 via Innovative Leisure. :Lemuria – Chihuly:...

  • Monahans (Dan) MP3

    Monahans are named after West Texas sand dunes, but the band is quick to note their “songs aren’t so much about a particular geographic location as they are about contrast.” And it’s that exploration in contrasts that makes them such a compelling act. It was evident on their first two releases, Low Pining (2007) and Dim The Aurora (2009), and it’s apparent on their new albums, Levele...

    In March local quintet Maryann released their rootsy pop/rock opus Outlaw Opry Act I. This Friday they’re holding a release show at Swan Dive for the sequel, Outlaw Opry Act II. Act II features appearances from a variety of guest musicians, including Haley Barnes (Acre Yawn, ex-Buxton).  Below you’ll find a really nice song off of Act II titled Adelaide.
