New Music Every Sunday. iamamiwhoami – “Fountain” (Internet single, 2014) I wrote about iamamiwhoami a while back, and it’s nice to see she/they have returned.  In January, a new series of videos began (presumably to be gathered into an album, as has been done in the past). So far, there’s two – this one and…

New Music Every Sunday. The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger- “Moth To a Flame” (from Midnight Sun, 2014) Sean Lennon and his girlfriend release new song that’s very influenced by pre-Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd.  Seems Sean’s also stepping back in time visually, as he’s looking very circa-1970 John Lennon-ish. I like…

Temples- “Colours to Life” (from Sun Structures, 2014) It’s 1967 all over again. John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension- “Abbaji” (from The Boston Record, 2014) Guitaristica d’fantastico. New Bums- “Black Bough” (from Voices in a Rented Room, 2014) There’s a serious John Lennon’s “Mind Games” feeling here, if filtered through a slightly haunted house. https://soundcloud.com/drag-city/new-bums-black-bough

The Autumn Defense – “Why Don’t We Wait” (from Fifth, 2014) It’s interesting how bands choose singles from their albums.  Often, I would choose different songs.  The Autumn Defense has been promoting “None of This Will Matter” and “This Thing That I Found” from their new release.  Both great songs from an album that the…

Bibio – “Dye the Water Green” (from The Green E.P., 2014) Smooth dreamscape underwater murmurings of the subconscious. Tennis– “Mean Streets” (live on KCRW, from Small Sound E.P., 2013) Gimme those updated retro 1970’s sounds, yeah. Ghost Beach – “Miracle” (from Blonde, 2014) Against all odds, I really like this song. And it’s not just…
