I desperately need to talk about what all's going down this weekend, but I've got to first mention, though, that we've got a bunch of new reviews up, most notably for the recent full-length from Deleted Scenes, who'll be playing up at Mango's with Young Mammals, News on the March, & Flowers to Hide tonight. It's a good disc, if somewhat scattered -- lots of very cool songs, definitely, but they don't necessarily fit together as a whole, y'know? When it does work, though, it really goes the distance, melding New Pornographers-style pop melodies with Death Cab/Modest Mouse hypnotic phrasing.
Check the full review here, and you can check out the band for yourself right here:
Deleted Scenes - "Fake IDs"
Deleted Scenes - "Ithaca"
And hey, even if that doesn't float your boat, the show's very much worth checking out for the YM guys, who throw down a frenzied, fist-pumping bag of indie-rock goodness every damn time they play, and News on the March, whose Beach Boys-meets-O Brother, Where Art Thou? pop-folk is pitch-perfect and unique as hell. I've heard really good things about Flowers to Hide for years, too, but have yet to catch 'em live, sadly. (Check the awesome Eli Sebastian Brumbaugh flyer, btw; H-town flyer art fucking rules, these days, I swear...)
Of course, there's other recent stuff, besides, like the recent Vaselines reissue(s), evil metallic pseudo-Buddhists Kylesa, two-piece mess-rockers The Ax, & some cool interviews I posted about earlier in the week -- here's the full list:
Interviews: The Wild Moccasins; The All-American Rejects.
Reviews: Deleted Scenes; The Traditionist; Kylesa; The Ax; The Vaselines; Star Fucking Hipsters; Invention; & Like Bells.
More to come...
