Whenever I am excited about an album as I am with the forthcoming Days LP from Real Estate, I am always worried there will be a let down when I finally hear the record. High expectations can often be unrealistic and artists can go directions that might let you down, or simply come across as one trick ponies who never match the energy of their debut record. Luckily, after hearing the the first song, “It’s Real,” from the LP and now hearing their latest hazy, reverb drenched pop ditty “Green Aisles,” I am feeling pretty good that Days it going to be a great step forward following their debut, self titled LP. If the first two songs are any indication, the record, which drops Oct. 18th, will be nothing short of what I have been hoping they would release in the two years since their last full length.

New Zealand’s Delaney Davidson has never been the cheeriest of songwriters. In the tradition of the deep American South, Davidson uses his songcraft as a means of exorcises his demons. The Blues, murder ballads, country; Davidson’s musical tastes run as deep and dark as the haunting baritone he sings them in. And just in case you maybe were holding out some hope that deep down he’s a cheerful, whimsical man, the lead single “I’m So Depressed” (an Abner Jay cover) off of his new album should lay those hopes to rest. In it Davidson takes on the countenance of a 1930′s southerner. Hiis character seems to be suffering not only from the Great Depression but from depression in a spiritual sense as well. And considering that its actually one of the more upbeat songs on his new record Bad Luck Man, well…let’s just hope that things for Delaney Davidson aren’t quite as bad as he makes them sound. Check out the song here and you can pick up the album from Voodoo Rhythm. Like all of Davidson’s past records its excellent.
New video/song from former local group Dada Trash Collage, who are teaming with Bear Ears to release a new LP titled Ambitious Out of Control. Like previous DDC material, “Crooked Ears” has a wobbly, fourth dimension pop sensibility and is lushly produced number that washes thought the speakers like a Quaalude addled dream. The song melds spooky with serene and has me excited to hear the rest of the album. Pre order the 12″ HERE and you will get the collabortions previously released 7″ for a limited time.
I am definitely suffering from dream-pop fatigue considering the last few years’ popularity of thick reverb and hazy aesthetics (more often than not accompanied by appropriately over exposed promo shots). However I am not so far gone that I can’t still appreciate pretty female vocals set to echoing drums and droning organ. Hance, I am digging new UK outfit Still Corners, who could be accurately described as a sort of goth Beach House. SC tread in the same molasses-thick waters as the the American duo though they do it with even more melancholy and where Beach House is rich and warm, Still Corners are conversely cold and remote. No less epic though. Check out their single “Endless Summer” below and mark your calendars for the band’s Minneapolis debut at the 7th St. Entry on October 28th.
Local noise-punk-jam group Marijuana Deathsquads have been making some noise (pun intended) locally for the last few years, but are starting to catch on nationally as they build towards releasing their debut LP (which I believe is dropping this fall). While I wish I could say it is because of their pluck and grit and the sensational songs they write, most non-Minneapolis writers seemed more focused on who is in the band and what other groups they play in. Oh well. Luckily the group are pretty good and can stand on their own two feet, especially in the live setting. While the studio is a dangerous proposition for a group so hell bent on organic electronic tom foolery, they seem to do OK with the confines so far, exemplified first on their contribution to the Totally Gross National Product mixtape and now on “Crazy Master,” the first track released from said forthcoming LP (or EP, or 12″, or 10″….really, they aren’t the best band when it comes to, you know, promoting their future material). The track is a long, meandering number that has moments of pure chaos and moments of grooves that border on danceable, but ultimately seems like a snapshot of a MDS mid-set opus, the kind of kinetic, hypnotic mess of energy and samplers, with demented vocals screaming from the ether for good measure. You aren’t sure whether to run for the hills to escape the Apocalypse or to throw your hands in the air for a Primal Scream like danceable salvation. Check out the track below and if you are out east check out their always great live show in October as they will be doing a residency at the Bowery Electric in October with Har Mar Superstar.

TONSTARTSSBANDHT are one of the new waves of hypnogogic bands that seem to be peculating over the last year or two. While some of their other material is a little more pop oriented, their latest material, and specifically the track below titled “Sinkhole Storm and Sandwich,” venture more towards the jam band mind meld corner of the spectrum. If you have the time and headspace, strap on your headphones and let the 17 minute jam saturate your brain, with the noodling of guitars, the soft edges of the bass and the waves of synths mix towards a technicolor tunnel of that never seems to end. At a minimum, you can’t ever say bands like TONSTARTSBANDHT are mailing it in.
Like every buzz genre, the deconstructed chill pop sound that is gaining steam these days has bands that are not much more than johnny come latelys, cashing in on the popularity of the new style. Fans of the genre will know that James Feraro is not one of those guilty of cashing in, as he has been making outsider pop, with warped samples juxtaposing with smooth pop tunes for the quite a few years now. His forthcoming LP, Far Side Virtual, will probably bring him to a bigger audience, but he still is doing things his own way with his surprise release of a new EP called Condo Pets. You can listen to two songs from the EP below, the majestic, almost Disney soundtrack pop utopia of “Text Bubbles” and bright pop shuffle of “Eco-Tot” below as a free preview of the EP. Grab Condo PetsHERE and pre-order his forthcoming Hippos In Tanks LP HERE.
Ghostband is the nom de plume of local electronic popsmith Jon Davis, who is back after a short break with his new tape Time Giver. “Behind Me” is a mellow, hypnotic pop gem that has me excited to hear the rest of the tape. Grab a copy of the new release and hear a live set this Friday at Yeti Records with the Ghostband In Store performance.
