Chief premieres 'Night & Day' video

Swirls of guitars, keyboards, melancholy, and sun drenched days conjure the feeling of '70s folk rock turned new again. It's the reason why Santa Monica's Chief was just recently signed to London's Domino Records. The good news is that the video for their first single 'Night & Day' just hit the streets, the band news is that you'll have to wait until tomorrow before their debut album, Modern Rituals, is released.

The Tony Castles announce debut EP + tour with Tom Tom Club

(The) Tony Castles play a kind of psych pop that defies many of the genre's usual traits. The droney, guitar-drenched atmospheres are replaced with sparse, staccato keyboard lines, and the mellow, dreamy vocals with melodies which at times are more reminiscent of Motown rather than Mazzy Star or Spacemen 3. Can we still call it Psych Pop, then? Yes we can, although the dream here is more akin to that random association of thoughts we sometimes experience while sleeping, rather than - say - a coherent, climax inducing sexy dream. And that should be taken as a compliment to the band's originality (although admittedly it might not sound like one). The Tony Castles will release their debut CD on September 17 at Union Pool, recommended show.


Blonde Redhead announce new release for September + fall tour

After three years without official releases, NY based Italo-Japanese trio Blonde Redhead announced that a new full length CD (entitled "Penny Sparkle") will be out in September. From a first listen, the new songs sounds more produced and electronic than the band's previous material - not surprisingly, considering that it was forged with the help of Stockholm based production duo Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid, the Swedish artists/remixers/producers who have worked with Massive Attack and Bat For Lashes among others. The band is scheduled to tour Europe and the US in the fall, with a November date in NYC. "Here Sometimes", the opening track of the new album, can be downloaded by singing up for the band's website, or streamed on their myspace page.


Artist(s) Who Deserve Your Friendship: Gypsy Death and You

Gypsy Death and You is a duo consisting of Drexel students Emily Cahill and Alex Wilson, who met in a History of Music Industry class their freshman year. Named after a line from The Velvet Underground’s “Run Run Run”, they claim to record “their own brand of dreamy-yet-edgy indie rock”. They do, and I’m lovin’ it! Gypsy Death and You are working on their debut EP, and the initial tracks are very promising revealing a songwriting team with maturity and vision beyond their years. The shoegazey dream-pop of “Time Absolute” with its minimalist drums and textured soundscapes lull you into their hazy world of noise frequencies. While “Crocus” bounces with the spirit of the catchiest of 90’s indie rock with Cahill taking vocal lead demonstrating the potential to someday share the stage with the likes of her buzzy Cali contemporaries Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. But they are young so give them time to grow. However, keep your eye/ear on them. I will. (Photo by Corinne Ryan) - Q.D. Tran
