Pueblo People's First Four Moons

Pueblo People’s First Four Moons

  I love the Bandcamp stumble! Pueblo People are a trio of players from Italy that recently self-released their debut, The First Four Moons for free via the service. Aptly described by the band as “Guitar music from the 60s vs. guitar music from the 90s,” Pueblo People blend the jangle, the rabbit role reverb psych...

Majical Cloudz Drop New Track, Share LP Details

Canadian outfit Majical Cloudz (Devon Welsh) have been a Holloweyed favorite for a while now. Having fell for the project’s hazy, glistening jingle pop by way of the fantastic track, “Recontextualized Deterritorialized Jingle,” I easily found the tune possessed a general bliss that could be the sound of one’s mind trancing into some carefree cloud of Drug Land.”...

Last month, I posted a Grab Bag tune from a Sydney quartet called The Laurels. Well, now, it looks like their debut album, Plains, is streaming in its entirity over at their label’s Bandcamp page.

Cellphone Ring and Rage

Cellphone Ring and Rage

  Unfiltered, synth-heavy punk, Toronto quartet Cellphone are a recent discovery, though have let their stink linger thanks to the recent tune, “One Last Shot.” Grimy and gluttonous, the mix relies on stalwart circuitry like the TR 707 and a Juno 60.

GRAB BAG: Lonesome Savages, Crocodiles, Cosmonauts + Writer

Mixing the best and rarest 60s garage, rockabilly, punk and more, Pyro’s massive record collection (30,000+) has become stuff of legend. I assume that this new 7″ from Kind Turkey records would fit right in in Pyro’s crates. The Madison, WI band The Lonesome Savages...

Year in Music 2011: Top 50 Albums

The year in review is always hard and with all the great and original releases that were issued this year, 2011 was by far the hardest of calendars to sort out and rate.
