Los Angeles dance-y noiserock GUIDES on second-half of winter tour

It's fitting that the trio GUIDES would buzz with visceral tone and asymmetric structure after spending their incubation period in recording studio comp'ny — womb to the sound babies of Nic Hessler, Ducktails, DRINKS, and more. The three have sculpted rock with defibrillating textures since 2012, into songs that exemplify the coastal resurgence of noise and agitas. Their fall EP "Abstract Mind" builds off 2013's self-titled 7", howling as it dances in pools of drone. And more recently, the bristling new wave release "Leave Me Alone", featuring pianist/singer Kristeen Young, shows GUIDES' aesthetic taking new form without dulling its edge.

GUIDES are coming up on the last days of their West Coast tour, places and dates below. - Ryan Mo

Ducktails unveils video for 'Under Cover' + tours Europe + plays MoMA

Following his spring US tour, Ducktails' Matt Mondanile is back to share a new video for "Under Cover," filmed in his home town of Ridgewood, NJ in an abandoned house that will be torn down very soon. The video comes in conjunction with the announcement of a new set of US and European tour dates, beginning with a free show at the Museum of Modern Art on July 25.

Ducktails announces release show for "The Flower Lane" LP - LPR, 01.23

Glo-Fi/Chill Wave fans should mark January 23rd on their calendar, because that's when New Jersey's Ducktails will celebrate the release of their first album on Domino Records with a show at Le Poisson Rouge. Started as a solo project by Real Estate's Matt Mondanile, Ducktails evolves with this album into a more collaborative effort. The preview title-track (streaming below) loses the low fidelity component present in all the band's previous releases, but gains big time in the songwriting and production departement, so much so that we may want to call this "Dream Pop" rather than Glo-Fi. Look out for the release of another single before the release.
