Christine Renner's bold in broken places sentimental pop warmly spins the experience in the omnipresent naivety of youth while maintaining integrity worthy of introspective appreciation. Renner is an idealist shaping inflected lyrics into rich ambiguous lingering dream monuments to greater truths and devastating defeats, no truer is this statement than with her new single "Drown."
My Aunt Mable died when I was still pretty young, but her personality was big enough to leave an impact that will last a lifetime. She was a short, white haired, Cajun woman with alot of spunk. Most children in the family learned to curse from her, resulting in a mouth full of soap. Often the adults would make us step outside the room, so she could tell dirty jokes. My parents told me, when they lived in L.A., Aunt Mable would mail them copies of her radio mixtapes-- I imagine to remind them of where they came from.
Big things are on the way for The Dead Coats. This album will be as valid to where they are headed as all the wild shows and two great releases which came before it. No more and no less. After three years of digging this band, we are excited to bring you the first track from Big Wish
"I do not feel separation on the basis of gender, age, religion, or nationality. I feel part and whole at the same time. My goal is to contribute to the world with the help of creativity. The power of women and the creation of a freedom, equality and inclusive world is the main theme and inspiration of my art, now. Love yourself and the world, and dream, dream until the dream comes true!" - Inna Mosina
There are precisely two things we cannot get enough of lately; Amy Taylor (Amyl and the Sniffers) and pointed criticism aimed at socialite parasites destroying all we have found significant and substantial by their vein tourism. With "Nudge It" Sleaford Mods combine both with cutting perfection.
No one should be surprised by the well-deserved hype going Casey Seymour's way as the tickled ear smile crosses those first listening through his Hidden Hills EP. All that nice-guys-finish-last propaganda is simply not true; good people surface slowly with namasteic wholesome warmth so as to be less dramatic in how they get there is all. Listening to the album feels as though it has always existed, as if Seymour had been singing these songs with his presence for years. If anything is surprising in the slightest it is not having thought he had the ambition to create something on his own in the first place.
Find part 1 (51-100) here. 50. Skyway Man – “Old Swingin’ Bell”The World Only Ends When You Die by Skyway Man 49. Tommy and the Commies – “Power on Standby”TOMMY AND THE COMMIES “Hurtin’ 4 Certain” EP by Tommy And The Commies 48. Thelma and the Sleaze – “Come Back Now” Turns out adjusting to a life indoors had a minimal learning curve; a couple of mental breakdowns, some stress yelling, stress sleeping, stress eating; minimal none the less. Who would have thought working from home without pants on, experiencing the world outdoors in small doses of smoke breaks and looking for packages dropped off by our blue and…
Find part two (1-50) here. 100. New Druids – “Hearts That Can Mend” Some of the bests from around town got together and shaped up an album with the same feel-good vibe the members themselves put off in real life. A much rarer feat than it should be. Looks like there are still a few Making Love To Make Music To Make Love To limited release cassettes available. If you are still on that “support local” train, this album is not a bad way to consider going about it. Making Love To Make Music To Make Love To by New Druids 99. Hershguy – “Laundromat (Yeah)” In a year deeply…
