First, a radio rip from BBC Radio of "Voyeur (Dub)", which pretty much is a beat with the same phrase repeated, repeatedly.
“Digital Lion” grabbed my attention, with the guest appearance from Brian Eno. Personally, this song is more enjoyable with its mellow ambiance. You could easily zone out to this in many settings. A good tribal drum beat with “mmmm hmmm’s” meshing together well.
The new Surfer Blood “Demon Dance” is just a great straight ahead rock track. A nice riff, good lyric and good hook from the forthcoming sophomore record Pythons on June 11th, which is being labeled as more of a driving rock record. If this track is any indication there won’t be a soph slump here.
Anytime San Francisco's Thee Oh Sees does anything, I’m listening. "Toe Cutter – Thumb Buster" is a fuzzed out psych rocker with cosmic reverb on the vocals. It almost makes me feel like Wayne Coyne should be floating over the crowd in his giant bubble. From Floating Coffin; out 04/16.
Finally, we share with you the entertaining new video from Phoenix, “Entertainment.”
UPDATE: Also, the new She and Him track just dropped. Poppy, catchy, and semi-retro. Not a fan of Zooey Deschanel the singer still. lovethe fact that they are playing Berkeley with Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell at the Greek on 6/22 though.
