Wild Flag – Wild Flag

September 27, 2011

Two great tracks off their great lp.

“Black Tiles”

“Future Crimes”


“Diamonds and Death” is the first full-length from VHS or Beta┬áin four years, but well worth the wait. Solid stuff, combining the old and new, from start to finish. Nice video and album cover too!

“Breaking Bones”

Goldie – Fabriclive 58

September 25, 2011

Nothing really fancy on this Fabriclive mix by Goldie: just the man playing the music he loves.

Which is exactly what makes it great.

Lenzman/Riya, “Open Page”

The Dead Trees – Whatwave

September 23, 2011

The Dead Trees, once local, have gone global.

They’ve played and toured with Albert Hammond Jr. and with Fabrizio Moretti’s band Little Joy. All of which probably contributes to what their new album sounds like: a West Coast version of the Strokes.

“World Gone Global”

Old-time bluegrass over modern electronics. Fits together surprisingly well!

Download the entire album from the link here.

Hazel Dickens/”Little Pretty Bird”

Pure X – Pleasure

September 13, 2011

Pure X, sounding like a sort of missing link between Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized. Excellent idea!

“Twisted Mirror”

“Dry Ice”

HTRK – Work (work, work)

September 10, 2011

HTRK, stuck by tragedy last year, now rise from the ashes like New Order did, with this new lp on Ghostly International.
