Houndmouth – "Penitentiary"

30 Aug

Folk rock is a format that’s been beaten into the ground by an endless line of derivative and overwhelmingly homogenous acts (read: white dudes, often bearded). But when it’s done right with that perfect mixture of sincerity, originality and flawed humanity—as with The Band and more modern incarnations like Dawes and Blake Mills—it remains one of the more affective and bewildering genres. Seated for a weeknight Bright Eyes show back in 2007, I remember being caught completely off guard when

Breakfast In Fur :: Die Pfalz

28 Aug

One of our very favorite bands—and Analog Edition alumni—Breakfast In Fur have released three new tracks for the Team Love Records compilation, Die Pfalz. Though we’re partial to the intimate bedroom-pop of Breakfast In Fur’s EP—the whistling tea kettle, the menagerie of percussive instruments, the bright youthful chorusing voices on “Shine”—the band’s creative ambitions are clearly growing, and they no longer fit inside the snug confines of home. “Whisper,” “Aurora Falls,” and

Foxygen :: Take The Kids Off Broadway

27 Aug

Foxygen is Sam France and Jonathan Rado: two 22-year-olds channeling early Stones records as if played by a vibrato-slinging lounge singer riding on a heavy dose of uppers and hallucinogenics. The influences here are purposefully audible and playfully collaged together in a thoroughly modern and hyper tapestry of psychedelia, blues, and pop music. Foxygen’s debut Take The Kids Off Broadway is masterful because of its members’ complete lack of inhibition on tracks like “Make It Known” and

The Frowning Clouds – "All Night Long" & "Propellers"

27 Aug

An Australian reader recently turned us on to a handful of great Aussie acts, including The Frowning Clouds. Based in Geelong, Victoria, this five-piece is an unabashed throwback to 1960s rock ‘n’ roll à la The Troggs and The Kinks with strong searing pop melodies, quick fuzzed out hits of electric guitar, and an atmosphere swirling with smoke, booze, and rabble-rousing anthems of youth and rebellion. The tasteful folks at Saturno Records in Seville, Spain have pressed The Frowning Clouds
