Two Bears North offers “Comeocean” for this weeks free download.

2bearsBlogSliderReminiscent of early Tegan and Sara, the 9-song album contrasts that sense of yearning with an exploration of inner turmoil. With upright and electric bass, vocal harmonies, electric guitar, synth, glockenspiel, violin, trumpet, drums and various percussion, the upbeat tracks contrast with deeply personal and emotional topics for a fun and fascinating journey.

#AOTW: Parquet Courts

DSC_8513-copy_905Well it happened. The Ramones are no more. Tommy Ramone, the last original member, passed away this past week. The Ramones were always in heavy rotation for me. I just couldn’t get enough of those driving guitars with the catchy as hell hooks. Those were songs that I will always remember blasting as loud as I could while I bounced off the walls of my bedroom, yelling every along with every line.

 

Now they were an old band 15 years ago when I was jumping on my bed. They’re an even older band now. But they never seemed so old that all of the original members should be dead. The Rolling Stones should be dead, but no, still alive and touring. In honor of The Ramones, I found the most Ramones-esque band I could. Today we celebrate those bastards by jamming to a band that has Ramones influence out the ass. This week’s ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Parquet Courts. Let’s start things off with the savage title track off their latest release titled Sunbathing Animal.

 

This Texas to New York transplant band has been killing it with their post punk/ punk garage rock that brings up my memories of sweaty basement parties and having warm beer thrown at me. It’s the perfect way to get things going.

 

This Americana punk is of a bygone era, but it’s about time it made a comeback. They’ve been gigging heavily in the NYC areaparquetcourts_bybenrayner2-e1400558731629 since 2011, tearing it up. Grantland even had the sack to refer to them as New York’s Last Great Rock BandTheir previous album Light Up Gold is still my favorite. The track Donuts Only blows my mind. It’s a minute and twenty-one seconds of trippy feedback followed by a violently pontificated rant about a store that only has donuts. It’s like an angrier Craig Finn has taken the mic.

 

 

Check these guys out for sure. I highly recommend watching their full KEXP performance. It’s a  banger.

Big Hugs,

Kelly

BTGBlogSliderThe duo moved from West Monroe, LA to Nashville in 2006 to attend college and make music. They were involved in separate bands, before eventually coming together when their respective groups dissolved. With The By Gods, Hammonds and Pauley are focused on the difficult art of keeping it simple, and making the music they love. “We’re really hedonistic when it comes to most things with The By Gods.” Hammonds explains, “As long as we’re into it, we think that other people will be too.”

#AOTW- The Rotaries

rsz_dsc_3602Been working fairly regularly these days. By regularly I mean I get pulled in for these 5 day edit sessions where you spend 20 hours of every day in a small room tweaking a 4 minutes video that will be seen by a total of 15 people. But that’s all right by me. It’s collaborative work and I enjoy it. After days like that though, I like to come home and just kick back. Things are different this time around. Normally I come home and there is a bevy of activity going on. This is the first time in a very long time that I can remember coming home to nothing. My girlfriend is on vacation and I am left to my own devices. Those devices being ice cold white wine and blaring music, which are pretty nice. I get to sit back and really get into some new music. Really listen to it, ya know? Like at the end of Dazed and Confused when the kid who keeps pinching the bridge of his nose comes home after his big night out and throws the headphones on and starts vibing to Slow Ride. That’s what I’ve been doing with this week’s artist of the week. Some new rock that really brings it back to the good old days. ARTIST OF THE WEEK: The Rotaries. Let’s kick things off with first song off their only LP Before Leaving titled Tomorrow’s Game.

The sound is warm. It reminds me of the first half of a Dr. Dog song, before they go a trippy. The Rotaries stay right in the sweet spot of indie-rock without ever drifting too far into pop. The band consists of three fine New York fellows.

 

Bernard Casserly: Bassuntitled-75

Danny Nosonowitz: Drums

James Rapp: Guitar/ Vocals

 

The music is familiar and catchy. Even though these guys are a newer band, when I first heard their 2012 LP Before Leaving, I got that sense that I had when I was a kid and I’d drive around with my dad while listening to classic rock radio. I may have been hearing the songs for the first time, yet I found them familiar and comforting. I’m not trying to blow expectations out of the water here, but the songs seem to come from a bygone era of pick up trucks and warm beer rather than the blogosphere (I fucking hate that word so much).

 

 

They have a brand new EP coming out shortly titled On The Outs. And I can’t wait. I want to hear more from these guys. Their music is something I can see myself kicking back to for the foreseeable future. Let’s go out with their track Problems For Sale. I know it has a ukulele in it which is an instrument so over used in indie bands that at times I want to puke in my mouth when I hear it, but in this instance it’s pretty okay. Rapp’s voice really sells it.

Big Hugs,

 

Kelly McDermid

#AOTW: Young & Sick

095Sweet Jesus. It’s hot, so god damn hot. I don’t think I’ve stopped sweating for a week, which in turn has caused me to discover all the wondrous aromas my body expels during the summer months. It’s a real bad scene in my armpit regions. I know I usually call out for tracks that turn up the heat, but right now that’s entirely out of the question. I need some cool down shizz. For jams like that I turn to this week’s ARTIST OF THE WEEK, a darling of the Dutch art music community, who released his first album, a self-titled full length, in April of 2014. That artist is Young & Sick. Let’s start things off with the first single off the album titled Heartache Fetish.

 

The vocals sound a bit like The Flight of The Concords but the songs themselves go down like a  straight up 90’s R&B jam. The composition is smooth as silk with a heavy hitting bass. It’s a big boom with a driving high hat, accompanied with some trippy synth really ties the whole thing together like a nice rug.

 

Based out of LA Young & Sick Dutch mastermind Nick Van Hofwegan is behind everything having to do with the band. Not only that but he himself is AR-AF524_SICK_DV_20140327174142responsible for some recent notable artwork for other bands, creating works for Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines, Foster The People’s Torches, Micky Echo, and T. Mills, not to mention creating a piece designed for Katz’s Deli’s gallery “The Space.”

 

My other favorite track on this record was previously an EP all it’s own titled Glass. It’s like The Pet Shop Boys did instrumentals and MGMT pitched in on vox to create an electro symphony. It’s a great jam.

 

Last but not least we are going to bring it down with the mellowest of mellow on the track Valium. Listening to it gets you feeling sexy unlike actual Valium which just drops a case of the sleepies in your gut.

 

 

Check out Young & Sick on one of those hot & sticky nights. Maybe it will help chill you out. If that doesn’t work I suggest hanging in a kiddie pool on the regular.

Big Hugs,

Kelly

One Finger Riot Offers “Give Me A Drug That Works Forever” For this weeks free download.

“I feel like it’s a song that would kick a lot of people out of a crowded room and leave behind the interesting ones,” McReynolds says of “Give Me A Drug Works Forever,” the lead track and first single from The Sea.

Of the album’s overall sonics, which he curiously describes as “punk-simple, but not punk-modulated,” McReynolds explains, “There’s a guy in the outskirts of L.A. who built me a lot of inexpensive, simple, gear to get the sounds I am after. I rely on cheap random gear from the past or one-off devices.  A lot of Radio Shack and re-purposed pre-amps.”
