Banished Be Cavalier Maps & Atlases gave us Solid Ground, the first track off their upcoming(at the time) album Perch Patchwork. I received it in April, and I really enjoyed it. I was curious what else would come, if this were a template for the rest of the music they’d include on the album. When I got Perch Patchwork, I instantly fell in love with it. The key & tempo changes, it was like a progressive folk, with dabs of psychedelia. I think at first these guys were put into a Math or Art Rock kind of category that was just…

Who doesn’t want to perform at Amoeba Music these days? The guys(and girl) from fanfarlo swooped into Amoeba to live record another great version of their song Luna from their album, Reservoir. If its an album you don’t already own, you should probably get on it.
There have been some real creative looking videos that I’ve been seeing lately, I love the effect of this one. The contrasty halftone effect is really fun to watch. I hate to single out Jack White on this one, but there is always something cool going on with the videos he is involved in. Either way, this song, and more importantly this album (Sea of Cowards) is great. A lot of fun to listen to, it just totally rocks.

The River Song The Same Old Rule The Deadstring Brothers have this great throwback sound, a little bit country a lot of rock and roll. I guess in similarity, they are most similar to a Drive By Truckers. But they are in no way just a clone. Coming from Detroit, you would certainly have expectations in their music; that being loud and wild rock like. But what you see is not necessarily what you get. The Deadstrings (my nickname) have this sound that is more of an homage to 70’s Exile-like Rolling Stones. Their lineup for their newest album Sao…
Tom Petty’s newest album Mojo came out June 15th. As a Petty enthusiast I was really excited by everything I had heard. This song is full of ensemble sounds, from screaming harmonica, killer guitar solo, and some great piano sounds. Its a song full of bouncing fun bluesy rock goodness.
Check out the new video from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. The track is called say no to love, and the video is really cool, it’s got a mixed media hand drawn animation overlaid upon video. Very Cool.
