J Mascis Tied To A Star
Aug 29, 2014 9:30am | CMJ

Since the return of the original Dinosaur Jr. lineup in 2007 with the instantly classic Beyond, J Mascis and company have been on a roll. His immediately recognizable guitar stylings are no longer only a defining characteristic of Dinosaur Jr. albums, but a key reference point in indie rock’s critical discourse. For some twenty years now, we have likened talented new guitarists who are unafraid of big amps and thick, fuzzy tones to Mascis, in the same way that he was once likened to the classic rock players he emulates. However, despite the ever-increasing size of congregation at the Church of Mascis, that guitar has never once sounded tired.

Although some fans considered ’90s Dinosaur Jr. albums, after the departures of bassist Lou Barlow (of Sebadoh) and drummer Murph, to be essentially J Mascis solo albums, it was not until 2011 that the first proper solo J Mascis solo LP, Several Shades Of Why, was released. That album largely found Mascis trading in his signature electric axe for its acoustic counterpart, picking and strumming his way through a batch of direct, beautiful tunes.

Released this week on Sub Pop, Tied To A Star reads like the sonic sequel to Several Shades. It is largely acoustic, punctuated by the occasional fit of electric guitar and, when the songs call for it, drums. This album expands upon Mascis acoustic side to great effect. His voice, normally settled comfortably amon...

MOKB Premiere : Souvenir Stand : Fall
Aug 29, 2014 9:24am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Musical trends have shifted over the years, but the lush experimental orchestral arrangements of the 1960s made popular by the likes of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson have always remained a constant. Acts like She & Him, The Morning Benders (can we please get The Morning Benders back!?), and even Vampire Weekend have drawn from this era creating a sound that is as fresh today as it was then.

Souvenir Stand, the act helmed by New York City’s Stephanie Cupo, are another who craft beautiful, girl group pop songs with a Twin Peaks aesthetic. On October 2nd, they will release a 7″ named SURPRISE (physically via Beautiful Strange/digitally via Silent Stereo) containing two new tracks. The b-side is this timely titled jewel “Fall”. It should provide the perfect back sound as we say goodbye to the summer and look ahead to autumn this Labor Day weekend. Stream it below.

MOKB Premiere : The Mercy Beat : Sweet (Soto Voce Remix)
Aug 29, 2014 9:22am | My Old Kentucky Blog

After being somewhat shrouded in mystery upon first learning about The Mercy Beat, we now know that the trio is comprised of Matty Bennett, Ian Smith and Sam Endicott, whom the latter you may recognize from early aughts act The Bravery. Their debut self-titled EP is out now on French label OSKAR Recordings. Today, they have unveiled a remix to the song that began this new chapter in their musical journey, “Sweet”. Reworked by Soto Voce (Miguel De Vivo from LA’s Villains), it takes more of a droning direction sonically dimming the brightness of the original. Listen below.

Native America Like A Dream (Stereogum Premiere)
Aug 29, 2014 9:07am | StereoGum

Native America sounds ancient, but not pre-Columbian ancient. Rather, on upcoming LP Grown Up Wrong the New Orleans trio trades in ebullient, hooky classic rock as filtered through about a half-dozen psych-pop revivals. “Like A Dream,” for instance, is slightly hallucinatory, highly rambunctious, and always riding a contagious groove. It’s as physical as it is ephemeral; it shimmers and it shakes. “Let me tell ya ’bout a different time, when no one smiled for pictures,” sings frontman Ross Farbe. “I remember when the evenin’ light shined so colorful, and nothin’ else could take me away.” There’s a lot going on here sonically, yet it all feels so simple — like the good old days, allegedly, although that sort of nostalgia is probably just a fantasy too. Listen and enjoy below.


Song : Mister Lies : Deepend
Aug 29, 2014 9:06am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Producer artist Nick Zanca aka Mister Lies has teamed up with Orchid Tapes for the release of his second LP, Shadows, due out October 28th. It will feature contributions from singer Harrison Lipton and labelmate, Arrange. His first song from it is the highly emotive “Deepend”. The song is full of sparse, but layered construction and lyrics that are almost shouted such as Don’t pull me up, I will drown happily. It plays like a cathartic release of sadness caused by something severely traumatic. It is hard not to be moved by the song. Listen below.

Cold War Kids have announced details of their fifth studio album, Hold My Home, which will arrive October 21st via Downtown Records. It serves as the follow-up to 2013s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.

Already weve heard the stirring lead single, “All This Could Be Yours”. Now, to coincide with today’s announcement, the band has shared “First”. The track is grand and regaling, a sonically uplifting mix of jittery guitars, handclap rhythms, and dynamic vocal harmonies. Again, Cold War Kids arent exactly reinventing the wheel, but rather emphasizing their core strengths of solid, enjoyable guitar rock.

Listen in below.

Hold My Home Tracklist:
01. All This Could Be Yours
02. First
03. Hot Coals
04. Drive Desperate
05. Hotel Anywhere
06. Go Quietly
