LOWER DENS are a band we wish we could feature more often around these parts. Sadly that’s not always possible, but this one here is so long overdue. Continue reading “Lower Dens – I Get Nervous 7″”
Released on Record Store Day from the Sub Pop crew is the latest single from LOWER DENS. These Baltimore haze-rockers lay down two new tracks, neither of which have been previously released. Continue reading “Lower Dens – Deer Knives 7″”
Here’s the last 7″ from the most recent batch of goods from the Hozac folk. It’s the XRAY EYEBALLS, whose only other recordings came from Night People and Party Store on cassette tapes. That certainly won’t be all though, because they have a full length due out soon enough via Kanine Records. Continue reading “Xray Eyeballs – Crystal 7″”
THE SOFT MOON is fronted by main-man Luis Vasquez, and this single comes from his debut release from the Captured Tracks label. The record was released about a month before the turn of the new year, and it received a great deal of praise. Continue reading “The Soft Moon – Parallels 7″”
New week = new music! We’ve got some killer records and singles lined up for you guys this week. Let’s start it off with the Brooklyn electronic duo GAMES who have recently been causing quite a stir in the music blogosphere. Continue reading “Games – That We Can Play EP”
Useless Eaters is the moniker for 19-year-old Seth Sutton from Memphis, TN and he records these songs himself with a four-track cassette. This is his most recent release, coming from the Memphis label Shattered Records, which was originally put together and run by Jay Reatard back in 2004. Unfortunately Reatard is no longer with us, but his label continues to churn out some damn good tunes, as proved by this 7″ here. And wherever he is, I’m sure Jay would be smiling.
Three brand new Useless Eaters songs fill this fine new piece of wax, with each song getting its point across before the two minute mark. That being said, this thing rips through pretty quickly, but it rips pretty hard too. Noisy, spiny guitar-driven songs dominate as Sutton shouts in anger over the head spinning racket. You should check out these songs below, ripped directly from the 7″!

When it comes to brand new bands, it doesn’t really get any fresher than this.
On June 29th, the brand new lazy beach rockers FAMILY TREES will release their debut 7″ from the San Francisco label Father/Daughter Records. Believe it or not, it also happens to be the first release for Father/Daughter Records too, so like I said, it really doesn’t get any fresher than this people. For their first release, they’ve only pressed 400 copies of the Dream Talkin’ 7″, and they come pressed on a voluptuous slab of crystal-clear vinyl that I’m sure everybody will go crazy for in just a matter of time.
The 7″ features three original songs from the Brooklyn band, and it clocks in at just about 7 minutes. These are the first three songs from Family Trees that are officially out there right now, but I’m sure these guys have more up their sleeves for us. Sure enough, I just checked their Myspace and they have plenty more to share with us. You can listen to the first song from their beachy, dazed out 7″ right below, and then you can head on over to the Myspace page and hear even more. If you like what you hear, you should definitely make your way over to the Father/Daughter Record store, because this breezy 7″ won’t be around forever, and you should snag one up before it’s too late. Thanks for coming by again today guys, and stay tuned for more!
