tunes and such
Lures - On Tape. h/t kexp. Here’s a piece from KEXP.
Basically the perfect song. Thx for making my lunch break better krclradio. Sonic Youth - Bull in the Heather. (The video is a fantastic relic of the ’90s.)
Just wanted to remind everyone again about this amazing album from last year: Shigeto - No Better Time Than Now
While in Seattle, paying homage with a local: Nacho Picasso - Blue Sky Black. Seattle Times piece where I found it.
Once you can embrace the creepy, high vocals, this is one rocking good tune: Jack Name - Do the Shadow. h/t @henryrollins. More on Jack Name.
I did not realize that John Dwyer was in a band with Brian Gibson of Lightning Bolt. It’s not this band, which is reuniting for sets at SXSW, but the influence shows here: Coachwhips - Hands on the Controls
It’s like that line from Pulp Fiction: ” @GravyDavies is a vegetarian*, so that pretty much makes me one too.” *but with us it’s chillwave
SoundCloud / Sub Pop
@schmandeep I will participate in dance club going wherein this is the typical track: Elon Mentana - Clap! Clap! h/t @allsongs. HEADPHONES REQUIRED
So many interesting influences; I was thinking Dismemberment Plan + all things Matador Records; kexp says Lou Reed + Luna (also true). All in all, a fine earworm: Posse - Afraid
By the time @GravyDavies reads this, the test will be over! Beastie Boys - This is Just a Test
