Poisonous Times By The Old Haunts

Speaking of catchy punkish stuff coming off the West Coast (The Muslims are from San Diego), let's look north. I am talking about Olympia, Wa. (of course??), home of The Old Haunts.

Dirty, Dumb & Comical By Unnatural Helpers

I must admit I had not heard of the Unnatural Helpers before Sub Pop put out their latest 7" Dirty, Dumb & Comical. After a little digging, I found out that the Helpers are made up of Dean and Mike of Double Fudge plus a variety of cats from the Seattle underground. Presently listed on the myspace are Chris (of Kinski?) and Kimberly (of Dutchess & the Duke?). They perform short garage rock dittys. The current 7" is part of Sub Pop Records Singles Club 3.0 (which is sold out). I Am Fuel, You Are Friends has a nice little retrospective of the Singles Clubs 1.0 and 2.0... here (NOTE: individual mp3 links don't work).

So, get ready for some rock 'n' roll that is slightly more rock and a little less roll.

Everything With You By The Pains of Being Pure At Heart

On October 14, Slumberland Records is going to release the Everything With You 7" by indienoisepoppers The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

Listen: "Everything With You" (box.net mp3)

"Everything With You" sounds like an amalgamation of, well definitely MBV, but also a whole bunch of late 80's-early 90's college rock. At the same time, it does NOT sound dated. The b-side is the 'anthem' entitled, um... "The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart." Dig it.

Lowtide By O'Death

Today let's talk folkpunk and O'Death.

Listen to the first song off their next album: "Lowtide" (box.net mp3)

Pretty kickass, no? Well, here is a creepy still from the video to "Lowtide":

Dag, this is the first time I am excited for the release of a music video in a long long time. I will try to post the vid as soon as it is available for streaming. I am guessing it will be creepy.

Now, the song itself makes me think of "A Good Idea" (ysi) by Sugar. I guess it's the face being held down in the water. Creepy.

The new new new album is entitled Broken Hymns, Limbs and Skin, and it come out at the end of next month on Kemado. This is what it looks like:

Broken Hymns, Limbs and Skin


Tourwise, the gold folks of O'Death are going to be playing the continent of Europe next, and will be back in Brooklyn at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg on Oct 30. Get more tour info at Ye Olde Myspace.

Kalise By El Guincho

Are the beats laid down by Barcelona-based 24 year old Pablo Diaz-Reixa a/k/a El Guincho "the new world music"? Maybe. His album, Alegranza! does mix traditional island song, African rhythms, and sampled psychedelics. It will be finally be released in the good 'ol US of A on October 7th via Young Turks/XL Recordings (and according to GvsB "remastered and possibly somewhat de-sampled"). The fact is, this album casts a spell on me -- it puts me in a trance. I fucking love it. It's definitely a runner up for album of the year.

George Washington By Meho Plaza

So... Meho Plaza, the album by Meho Plaza has been on my ipod for a while now and I figure it is time to share a couple of tracks that have been sticking in my head of late. In case you are unfamiliar, Meho Plaza are from LA and they play noisy synth driven rock n' roll.
