New Palm LP Available for Streaming

Ahead of its February 9th release date via Carpark Records, Rock Island, the sophomore album from Palm, is now available for streaming, courtesy of NPR’s First Listen. The band playfully experiments with traditional sonic structures, often spinning expectations on their head. Establishing a melodic ease and accessibility and then abruptly shifting gears, that controlled, chaos approach makes one envision some mastermind (i.e. Willy Wonka or the great and wonderful Oz) is calling the shots and pulling the levers behind the curtain. On Monday, March 26, Palm will be seting up shop at First Unitarian Church, supported by The Spirit of The Beehive and Old Maybe.

Debut Sun Opus LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The trio of Sun Opus recently shared its debut album Lucky Man. Person L compatriots Brian Medlin (Legendary Divorce), Charlie Schneider (The Elk Band), and Ryan Zimmaro (Vacationer) once again combine forces. The LP locks into a futuristic rock sound, as noise percolates around the perimeter. The immediacy of gritty guitar and cued danger meshes with limitless orientations of discovery as the music unfolds.

Casper Skulls - Hometown Show 02.10 before SXSW!

Casper Skulls released a new LP last November titled “Mercy Works”. Seems they have added more of a pop presence on this record. Evident in the track “Lingua Franca”. The nice vocals give a 90’s alternative vibe to the track. They still keep enough fuzz and emotion to not stray too far from their garage roots. Perhaps a bit of maturity from these folks. They play here in Toronto at the Super Wonder Gallery on February 10th before they take off to Austin and represent “The Big Smoke” at SXSW! Nice work! – Kris Gies

Milk For The Angry release video for "Upside 85"

There’s a certain cosmic energy that strings together the scenes of the newest music video for the track “Upside 85” (streaming below) by Oakland trio Milk For The Angry; the randomness is reworked into a psychedelic reality quite easily, through flashing images of thrashing, glitter-soaked bodies, a live performance, and lone motorcyclist on the freeway. The grunge-soaked garage rock is heavy with psychedelic influences, riffing off of the surf-sensibilities of the scene. Listening to “Upside 85”—or frankly, any track by the Cali natives—feels like stepping into a wonderfully gritty postcard of the Golden State. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the band, founded by Dana Windstorm and Matt Kerslake after a chance encounter in a Bay Area drum shop, is essentially a living mythologization of what it means to be a musician in California. Or maybe it’s just something about the reverb. Regardless, it’s difficult to listen to this track without stepping back afterwards and thinking, “there’s something special here.” Milk For The Angry is playing a string of local shows soon, with the next announced date being February 28th at Bottom of the Hill. - Lilly Milman

The Prefab Messiahs return (again) with “Psychsploitation Today”

Since the initial creation of the garage/psych weirdo collective The Prefab Messiahs in 1981, the band has disbanded and banded again several times, scattering new releases as they came and went. The band’s newest release, the cynical Psychsploitation Today, continues their sonic narrative of the past while highlighting the hysteria of today. The Messiahs are as weird as ever on Psychsploitation, locking into a psych sound of the mid/late 60s when it was hip to be as weird as possible; the whole record is a swirling conglomerate of surf and garage music, chanky tamborine, chorus-drenched harmonies, and a not so subtle nod to the current administration in power (“The Man Who Killed Reality”). Get weird with Psychsploitation Today below. -Charley Ruddell
