PREMIERE: Gold Casio - "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times"

Leave it to Gold Casio to breathe some life back into this tired day of mildly holy appreciation. A particular appreciation of theirs (and anyone else that relishes surf music's pioneers) revolves around the Beach Boys, their opus Pet Sounds and everything that they've done for music in general.

Since 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Pet Sounds' release, Gold Casio have used their psychedelic disco elements to cover the most relatable Side two song on Pet Sounds, "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times." 

On their choice to cover "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" specifically, Gold Casio's Brock Grenfell said:

We wound up choosing this particular song because its got great melodies and it was kind of just resonating with us. Honestly, after what a shit-show year 2016 has ended up being, I feel like it's pretty appropriate. I think a lot of people probably feel right now like they weren't made for the times we're living in. 

SO. MUCH. TRUTH. See Gold Casio play for Do503 at the beginning of the new year with Glasys and Holidae House at Holocene but until then, enjoy their dance pop take on a Beach Boys' classic.

Visual Vices: Mattress - "Looking For My People"

 A present wrapped in gold that we were able to open early, Mattress's video for "Looking For My People" is another visual gift from director Jay Winebrenner and of course, another aural goodie from Mattress.

The "Looking For My People" video takes a voyeuristic turn, veering the "long winded performance shot" course most music videos typically take by swerving towards mild semblances of David Lynch's Lost Highway. It's everything to be expected and loved from a Mattress and Winebrenner collaboration - awkwardly funny and definitely a little strange.

Have a Mattress Christmas and enjoy the weirdness below.

Weekend Warrior, December 23 - 25

The hypnotic, slithering, synth-laced electro-pop of Shari Vari, a.k.a. Void Vision, cerebrally slices. Tonight, that ruminating, adrenaline-activating, cold-wave creeps into Kung Fu Necktie. While the haunting suspense sends shivers up one’s spine, the warm ripple of rhythm radiates internal warmth. This evening’s bill, which also features the pulsating EDM beats of Dan Shields, a.k.a. Speaking Parts, as well as a DJ set from the heart-pounding hyper kinetic Deflector, serves as a benefit for the victims of art collective Oakland warehouse space Ghost Ship fire that killed 36 people. Embrace the twisted grooves, while giving back. Kung Fu Necktie 1250 N. Front St., 10:30pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Maggie Rogers takes things to the next level with trilogy of videos and tour

After being blessed by Pharrell Williams' seal of approval, which got a lot of eyes on her and ears on her track 'Alaska,' NYC's songwriter Maggie Rogers is trying to capitalize on the attention by unveiling a trilogy of videos featuring that single and two new songs. The second one of the series, 'Dog Years' (streaming below), resumes the atmospheric, electronic-pop-soul sound of 'Alaska', including the subtle African music influences. Maggie has also announced three legs of a winter/early spring tour that will take her - between January and April 2017 - from the east coast to Europe to the west coast and back, with a final date at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on April 11. We are sure the third video will drop just before the tour begins, in early January.

Weekend Warrior, December 16 - 18

As we approach the end of what will be remembered as 2016 - a sea of overwhelming sentiment and saturation - we can reflect on our experience with a resounding NAH. Philly sound sculptor Michael Kuhn captured a devoted following with his work in the explosive rock duo 1994!. In recent years, he has departed in large part from “guitar music” to reemerge into the musical ethos as a harbinger of defiance, affronting musical norms through experimentation and a healthy skepticism of traditional genre boundaries. Shreds of sonic imagery sound out into the whir of Kuhn’s bewitching rhythm section, recalcitrant while bearing a unity that is tangible at a live set. A NAH show creates a space to engage in the reassuring positivity and thrill of being present, as selves and as participants in the greater communities we occupy. He’ll be celebrating the release of his new LP Michael (Ranch Records) this Saturday in Brewerytown at Yung Kandy Collective, where he'll also be supported by special guests Drums Like Machine Guns, Slums, and What NerveYung Kandy Collective, 7:30pm, $7, All Ages (Photo by Gabe Coffey) - Josh Kelly
