Although Mozes and the Firstborn
might sound like some sunny California garage pop, they actually come to us via a Netherlands basement. The Dutch band has been a favorite among the European skate scene and now is ready to cruise west. Their debut album, 'I Got Skills'
, is reminiscent of the psychedelic 70’s sound met with a nod to easy listening melodies. It comes out this month and you can stream it here.: http://pitchfork.com/advance/355-mozes-and-the-firstborn/
Nashville’s lovable loners, Natural Child, will be releasing their next album 'Dancin' With Wolves' later this month. It rumbles over via the boys at Burger Records on the 25th. Their first single, "Saturday Night Blues", rolls in like a flatbed truck on a small town weekend. Crack it open and listen to it here.
Atlanta’s garage rock rulers the Black Lips will release their next record “Underneath the Rainbow” on Vice next month. Like a tipped over bottle dripping on the floor, the leaked first single, “Boys in the Wood”, sticks to you with its woozy blues approach. Drink it in slowly because it will leave you wanting more.
Who would have thought 25 years of great underground rock n’ roll shows would land you a civic holiday? Mayor Todd Gloria of San Diego has announced today, January 14th, as 'Casbah Day'. To celebrate, Sector 9 is a proud sponsor of “25 Years of the Casbah”. You should join us, it’s your civic duty.
Just in time to mess up everyone’s “best of the year” lists comes the new EP from atmospheric, London based producer, Burial. The 3 track release is filled with perfect breakbeats over lo-fi bass buzz, sparse dark arrangements, ambient samples, and soulful vocals.
You can stream it over at Gorilla Vs. Bear and decide if it tops your list.
It’s our 50th New Music Tuesday Anniversary! Did you get us anything?
Bobby and the boys over at Burger Records put out a tribute tape of VU’s White Light/White Heat, so you could get us that. The cassette is jammed with our favorite bands like Natural Child, The Memories, and Gap Dream. But the stand out track has to be Curtis Harding’s blistering version of “Here She Comes Now.”
Stream the cassette here and make sure to pick up a copy …….for us.
It takes a band like Fuzz, and a town like San Francisco to throw Ty Segall a real birthday party. Well, it is his band and his town. When you add Castle Face Records recording live to document the jam, the party goes sonic. The heavy stoner-blues of Fuzz is total psych-sludge worship with Ty slamming the drums and hollering his trade mark vocals. Happy Birthday Ty.
