Sounds of Secret Stages 2015 #3: The Burning Peppermints

One of these years, by heaven, I'll make it down to Birmingham for Secret Stages. Sadly, it won't be this year, so once again I'll be missing out on the great lineup the festival folks have put together for the fifth iteration of this special event. Nevertheless, your lady friend has done some scoping out of the lineup, and of course I have some recommendations. If you're doing Secret Stages, check these folks out. If you're not, check 'em out anyway!

Time to pay some attention to some local Birmingham talent, I do believe. The Burning Peppermints, in their dapper matching ensembles, churn out some mighty fine, slightly shambolic, might-could-maybe-blow-out-your-speakers rock and roll, infused with some psych and some sass.

In the ether between the past and the present hovers Arkansas band Early Walker. Channeling the rich instrumentation of the best of 70s classic rock with vocals both fractured and of the moment, this Fayetteville outfit offers a lot to get excited about.

Sounds of Secret Stages 2015 #1: Sweet Crude

One of these years, by heaven, I'll make it down to Birmingham for Secret Stages. Sadly, it won't be this year, so once again I'll be missing out on the great lineup the festival folks have put together for the fifth iteration of this special event. Nevertheless, your lady friend has done some scoping out of the lineup, and of course I have some recommendations. If you're doing Secret Stages, check these folks out. If you're not, check 'em out anyway!

I am intrigued by the wonderful Cajun-ness of Sweet Crude, the Louisianans who bring their love of Cajun culture effortlessly and endearingly into their buoyant, delightful indie folk pop. In their own words: 

"We are indigenous to South Louisiana. We would like to show the world that we can make progressive music that also embraces this region’s French-speaking tradition. We are joining a small but fervent group of young Louisianians engaged in keeping the language relevant via art. Also we would like to drink whiskey and dance all the time."

Who can argue with that? Heck, I'd love to drink whiskey and dance right along with these little darlings.

Singles Club: Foals

I don't know about y'all, but any day with a new Foals song is a good day, as far as I'm concerned. 

"Mountain At My Gates" is taken from the forthcoming long player What Went Down, and stays true to the Foals vibe with the gritty grooves and soaring vocals, with the addition of a rambling, magnificently messy climax near the end of the song. 

I can't help but get the feeling this new record of theirs will be pretty darned great, don't you?

On The Road Again: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr/Jr Jr

Detroit party dudes Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr are on the cusp of the release of their third LP, and they'll soon be hitting the road to kick out their latest batch of good time jams. But the guys also have a name change to spread the news about, as they're dropping the former part of their name and keeping just Jr Jr. Heck, brevity can be good, right? So make sure you don't get confused. 

The tour is pretty extensive, so be sure to get out there and check these fellas out. I've seen them and will vouch for the entertainment/good times value. I'd hazard a guess that the diabolically catchy ear worm of a new single "Gone" will be a regular on the setlist.

Video Of The Day #57: Sleepy Hahas

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

I have absolutely no idea what is happening in the Sleepy Hahas video for "Deep River," and I am absolutely ok with that. The Buffalo psych knob-twiddlers go all art school kooky, with a black and white clip that calls to mind the not right vibe of Wonder Showzen, and the song itself has some sass to play off the weirdness. If you like it wacky, you're going to be watching this for hours.

Singles Club: Death In The Afternoon

I've been on a little bit of a dream pop kick lately, but with songs like this coming my way it's no wonder.

Death In The Afternoon is a boy-girl duo from Sweden, and if "'82" is any indication, they trade in glacial, graceful, sinuous dream pop. "'82" floats along, dreamlike and fizzy, full of guarded optimism. A great listen on steamy days, and a song to suit any season.

The Untitled Interview #211: Starring The Bad Years

In truth, The Bad Years sounds like Los Angeles. Languid, scuzzed out garage or sunbeam slow-motion hypnotics couple with lovely wisps of smoky vocals, and it's like sitting in late afternoon Southern California sunshine. Utterly awesome and lovely. 

The adorable duo behind The Bad Years, Sami Akbari and Aaron Mort, are hot off an EP release and hopefully working on their plan for world domination. In the meantime, they very kindly answered some questions for yours truly. Read on for Sami and Aaron's insights into all manner of things, including the joys of making things up, Phyllis Diller, and the great Nancy and Lee. And make sure you check out their fantastic Beautiful Liar EP. You can thank me profusely at your leisure. 


Fuzzy Logic: How the hell are you?
The Bad Years: Ok!

FL: What was the last song you listened to?
Sami Akbari: Ugh, it might have been “Style” by Taylor Swift. It was in the car and I was almost home, so I just let it keep playing . . . or maybe that’s just what I tell myself.

Aaron Mort: I was just listening to The Troggs “With A Girl Like You” and before that a Phyllis Diller comedy record.

FL: Playing music is:
SA: Fun, maddening, hard, easy, the best.

FL: What album most made you realize you wanted to make music?
SA: I don’t think there was one particular album. I grew up listening to A LOT of Beatles, and whatever my parents had lying around - Richie Havens, Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond, it ran the gamut.

AM: Weezer’s “Blue” album was on constant repeat in middle school and high school, that record definitely changed the game for me. Before that, I really got into the blues, BB King & Howlin’ Wolf specifically, and a TON of Dylan and The Band.

FL: Beatles or Stones?
SA: Beatles!

AM: They’re both amazing in their own right.

FL: Top 5 albums (of now, of this week, of ever):
SA: Abbey Road - The Beatles, August and Everything After - Counting Crows (for real), When the Pawn . . .- Fiona Apple. I’ve been super into Father John Misty’s current release and Jim Croce has been playing on our record player this week.

AM: Always a tough one...here is a pretty random cross-section of records past and present in no-particular order of hierarchy: New Morning - Bob Dylan, Dr. Dog - Shame Shame, The Dirtbombs - Ultraglide In Black, Abbey Road - The Beatles, Loaded - The Velvet Underground

FL: Favorite music-related movie?
SA: This is tough! I have to list 3, pretty different films: A Hard Days Night, Festival Express and Almost Famous.

AM: Although not a music-related film, the soundtrack to Moonlight Mile is amazing.

FL: Half-full or half-empty?
SA: Today I would have to say half-full but there are many days where it’s half-empty.

FL: Which of your peers do you think is making the best music these days?
SA: We are surrounded by a lot of talented people we know and don’t know. We were enjoying Broncho’s song “Class Historian” recently, and just in our circles we’ve heard fantastic music from Elle Belle, Misty Boyce and Lucius.

FL: What's the first thing you think when you wake up in the morning?
SA: Again??

AM: Morning??

FL: Little-known The Bad Years fact?
SA: We are avid stamp collectors. We also like to make things up a lot.

FL: The greatest record store in the world is:
SA:
I mean, Amoeba is pretty great.

FL: Your boots were made for:
SA: Takin' off and kickin' back on the couch.

FL: Shaken or stirred?
SA: Depends on the drink!

FL: Favorite venue (either to play or to visit)?
SA: The Hollywood Bowl is an awesome venue to visit.

AM: I’ve had some magical experiences at The Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA.

FL: Best piece of advice you've ever been given?
AM: Have you ever considered a real job?

FL: If you weren't in a band you'd be?
SA: I have no idea! That’s why I’m in a band.

FL: If you were so inclined, whom would you form a tribute band in honor of?
AM: Nancy & Lee. [ed. note - That would be Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, of course]

FL: Best song ever written?
TBY:
Not sure, but there is a good tribute.

Video of The Day #56: Lights That Change

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

There are few things dreamier on a Sunday afternoon than a nice cocoon of dream pop. From Wales comes Lights That Change, a trio making inky, enveloping, dreamiest of dream pop. The video for their single "Voices" is a haunting companion to the dark magnetism of the song, and the undulating paint splatters, Rorschach shapes, and nifty kaleidoscopic effects are spot on.

It's about this time of the year that I start to really look forward to fall. I have a low humidity tolerance and I'm ready to cool off. But the summer does bring out the good shows, so it's a tradeoff. And remember, y'all, each week I'll be picking one show that is my seriously, go to this recommended show of the week, a show that should be the subject of your undivided attention.

Crossing the Pond: Reverieme

As much as I love gloriously loud cacophonies of effects pedals and waves upon waves of noise, sometimes a girl likes to tone it down a wee bit. As in, girl + acoustic. And that's it.

Hailing from Airdrie, Louise Connell, otherwise known as Reverieme, hits the spot. Connell's voice coos bittersweet, prettily melancholy and at times a touch otherworldly. Songs like "Plankton" are what ought to get folks more than a little excited, and I for one can't wait to hear more.       





[posted 7.5.15]

Remix Fix: Astropol

In theory I like the idea of the remix: taking someone else's song and tweaking it the way you want it done. It's a great means for completely redoing something, and for reinterpretation. Sometimes remixes go awry, and sometimes they're better than the original. Remix Fix is all about the happy medium when a remix totally nails it and makes a song that much better.

So, this little summertime perfect jam is a wee bit different than the usual Remix Fix song. Instead of being a great song teased into another great song by someone else, it's another version of the same song by the same folks. In this case, Astropol (a Swedish supergroup of sorts), doing a special Midsummer version of their effortlessly cool, Scandi slinky pop song "The Sound of a Heart that Breaks." It's mighty fine, if I do say so myself. And do stay tuned for more Astropol coming soon.

Video of the Day #55: Anderson East

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

I do love a good studio video, it must be said. Especially when there's a lively horn section, cooing backup lady vocalists, and a raspy, honeyed voice that can just about knock you over. Really, what more does a gal need? Anderson East immediately calls to mind Van Morrison with an Alabama drawl, and the video for "Satisfy Me" (shot in the magical Muscle Shoals, Alabama) ought to leave anyone good and satisfied. 

Now, y'all please pardon me while I swoon.

Happy 4th of July!

It's time once again to don your most patriotic of red, white, and blue ensembles, pull the tab on the first of many great American beverages, and do whatever else you might happen to do to celebrate America. Unless of course you don't live here, in which case, there's really no need to celebrate.

One of the most American of things is that Star-Spangled Banner, the one everyone butchers at public sporting events because it's so very difficult to sing. The best version, of course, includes zero singing. I'll leave you with the 1969 Woodstock version of Jimi Hendrix putting all other renditions of the national anthem to shame. Happy Fourth, y'all!

Video of the Day #54: Kidcat Lo-fi

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Leave it to a band from Vienna (Austria, not Virginia) to create a song that really captures exactly how I feel about the summer months. Called "Hate Summer," the lyrics in this Kidcat Lo-fi ditty are spot on and cute to boot, and the whimsical, almost twee lady vocals add that extra touch of charm. The video is simple, really, just the band enjoying (or not) some Austrian sun and goofing off, but it just fits the song to perfection. Summer haters unite!

Newsflash!: New Beach House Single!

I'm sure some of you are already appraised of this news (good boys and girls that you are), but just in case you weren't yet aware, there's a new Beach House song making the rounds in advance of the August release of newest long player Depression Cherry

I'm chomping at the bit to get my hands on the record, and "Sparks" proves a tantalizing first listen. It's heavier on the scuzziness and grit than previous efforts, which just makes me all the more excited to hear the rest of Depression Cherry. Hurry up, August.

On The Road Again: The Bluetones

Y'all know I like to wax nostalgic about the glory days of the late 90s, when British bands were all over the place and a budding Anglophile could immerse themselves in all sorts of fabulous musical exports. The Bluetones was part of that later wave, their easy, effortless appeal (and swoon-worthy Morriss brothers) making quite the good impression on yours truly. 

Fast forward 20 years (sweet mercy) and the lads are readying themselves for a wee reunion tour. If I wasn't already going out of town during the time they were scheduled to be on the road, I'd seriously consider hopping on a plane to catch one (or more) of these shows. Timing is everything, as they say. Dates and a little dandy of a song are below.
