Candace is Back with Another Valentine's Day Soundtrack

Last year, goblin pop trio Candace shared a duo of specially covered love songs for the sake of Valentine's Day. They've done it again this year, and even included one of their own original tracks as an extra delight.

While you're getting ready for your big Valentine's date or perhaps just chilling at home demuring the date, Candace's mini playlist is worthy of some proper rotation. Providing their own gazed out bedroom pop versions of "Something's On My Mind" by Karen Dalton and "Do I get So Shy" by Shoes, along with a newer song of theirs called "Great Basin," their V-Day release is honestly one of the best things about today. Here's to hoping it becomes an actual tradition.

You can catch Candace playing on Thursday, February 16 for a Lose Yr Mind sponsored show along with Souvenir Driver and Sinless.

New Tremellow/Haggert Mctaggert Split Available for Streaming & Purchase

Tremellow (a.k.a. Keith Abrams of Pine Barons) and Haggert Mctaggert (a.k.a. Braden Lawrence of The Districts) have issued a split release, Doom Paste, whose proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood. “Plastic Impulse” unwinds with familiar acoustic strumming, before cruising in a melodic but "out there" groove in an MGMT pop-psych manner, while “Franny” propels forward in on space-age, pulsating, dance beat with modulating vocals. Both artists will be performing at an ACLU benefit this Sunday, February 19 at Ortlieb’s as part of a bill that also includes Straw Hats, Pine Barons, and Mumblr. Keep up the generosity, Philly!

New Track: "New Dream" - Dulls

Fall languidly into the void of Dulls' new single, “New Dream,” before abruptly being snatched away in the turbulent waves of fuzzed-out guitar. The recording from Philly dream-pop/shoegaze four-piece reveals a giant leap forward in production from the group's self-titled debut EP. Recorded and mixed by John Ceparano (of The Stargazer Lilies), it’s the latest off the band’s forthcoming album, Moon Violet, due out February 24. Dulls are also set to open for No Joy that same evening at Kung Fu Necktie. (Photo by Caitlin Vivian)

Def.GRLS play Rough Trade on 03.16

OK folks, it's almost Valentine's Day, but, really... are we rockers supposed to give a crap? (Answer: it depends what your other half thinks about it, and how much you care about him/her...). Brooklyn's Def.GRLS, at first glance, looks like a band perfectly equipped to entertain Valentine's Day practitioners. Just look at the cover of their 2015 “GRLS EP,” which features the annual red, pink and white "hues of adoration." The image on the record even depicts a woman biting into a marshmallow of some sort, while the band, in one of their Beatlesy-bubbly-beepity-bop tracks, sings about a... "FinGRLess Lady"??? Can you feel the love in the air or what? Okay, true, other great indie hits have been written about mutilation, and at the end of the day Def.GRLS do also sing about the girl of their dreams in “GRL,” another lo-fi, '60s style psychedelic pop gem. But we don't think that's enough to make them a good choice for your "regular" Valentine's day - and that's probably why their upcoming show is NOT on February14th, but a month and two days later, at Rough Trade, on March 16th. Check out their recent single Krampus, streaming below. - Jocelyn Huggler

The Gentle Cycle Gives Debut Album's Proceeds to Good Causes

Bay area psych rockers The Gentle Cycle have just released their debut LP, and will give send anyone a copy in the US that donates $18 or more to Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Oxfam, PBS, or Dakota Access Pipeline Fund. A donation of $5 will give the donor a download link as well.

‘I have strong socialist beliefs, and in this current climate it feels right to do whatever we can to help get funding to these noble organizations’, says Gentle Cycle’s Derek See.

With a painstaking attention to detail, these songs were filtered through a cool grip of vintage guitars and components, like an antique Echoplex tape delay and a funky old spring reverb unit. They even recorded on a 1970s Tascam 388 analog reel-to-reel, replete with a deadstock spool of old quarter-inch tape. But Derek's melodic musings come from an abstract foundation that's more modern and forward thinking than most musicians beholden to period-correct tones. Listen to The Gentle Cycle and you'll hear a band that somehow balances universal emotions with astral, atmospheric sonic architecture.
