Hi everyone, I got some new music to share with you all today. We’ll start it off with Seapony’s brand new album, Falling. This Seattle threesome is all about the dreamy indie pop-rock. I really enjoy this album, they have really catchy hooks and riffs that make you want to sway back and forth. My favorite tracks are “What You Wanted” and “No One Will Be.” Check it out below.
Next album I want to share with you is the brand new one from another Seattle band called Band Of Horses. This is their fourth full length album and it’s called, Mirage Rock. Another great album from these guys, they have such an incredible sound of indie rock, it’s hard not to like them. Mirage Rock sounds a little bit different than their previous efforts, it feels a little more intimate this time around. This is a really solid album that should be heard by all so check it out below. My favorites are “Shut-In Tourist” and “Heartbreak 101.”
Saturday night was a night of rock and roll and lasers. I started the night out at Pioneer Square seeing local rock stars Starfucker. The guys were stoked to be playing at the square and their performance showed that. They played all the great hits like “German Love” and “Millions.” They have a bunch of shows throughout the year so check here to see if they are coming to you. You don’t want to miss them.
The next show I wanted to see was The We Shared Milk, but instead my car got a flat tire and I missed the entire show getting the spare on. So after that mishap I went over to Bunk Bar to see local Portland band Mission Spotlight. This five piece indie country rock band was a real treat to watch and drink a beer to. They have such a great sound with their slide guitar and blend of post-rock and country music. The slide guitar plays my heart strings and his voice sounds almost god-like. Check out their new album called Everything That Floats.
Next up at the Bunk Bar was Seattle duo, My Goodness. And my, did they rock so freaking hard! These guys might just be my new favorite band. They play an awesome blues-rock that reminds of early Black Keys. My Goodness is another reason why rock ‘n’ roll isn’t dead. Check out their bandpage here and watch the bad-ass video of their single “I’ve Got A Notion” below.
The last band that I caught was Sad Baby Wolf. Started by Marty Crandall and Neal Lanford, former The Shins/Flake Music members, this post-rock outfit totally rocked out the Doug Fir Lounge. Super high energy lo-fi post-rock mixed with catchy choruses and riffs, these guys are worth a listen to. They also had really cool finger lasers that were fun to play with. I’m really stoked to hear more from these rockers from Albuquerque, NM.
Got some brand new music for you lovely people. First up is Animal Collective’s newest full length album Centipede Hz. I really enjoy this album a lot! I personally think Merriweather Post Pavilion was a little over-rated, still good, just over-rated. This new one though has a great sound, it’s like a nice mix between Strawberry Jam and Merriweather Post Pavilion, but totally new and exciting. There is some great vocal manipulations and brand new sounds that I’ve never heard before. Animal Collective has a great way to make pop music sound so fresh in a psychedelic way. I highly recommend this album check it out over at NPR’s site for a free stream, and watch the freaky new video for “Today’s Supernatural” below. My favorite tracks are “Applesauce” and “Monkey Riches.”
Next up is a more contemporary pop-rock band called Wild Nothing. Their second full length album comes out tomorrow the 28th and it’s called Nocturne. Wild Nothing has a really cooled out sound with relaxed drum beats and echoey guitars. The breathy vocals give a lot of texture to their sound as well. Digging into the same vain as The Cure, Wild Nothing has a care free type of music you can groove to. You can check out Nocturne streaming below. I like the title track and “Midnight Song.” This is an album definitely worth a full listen to.
