Vid Yo Time

The New Yak Times debuted Ty Segall‘s new video for “Manipulator,” the second single off of his new LP a few days ago. Created by former University of San Francisco classmate Matt Yoka, the video features cut-and-paste art book images, textures and nature scenes that evolve as the video progresses. The coolest part is that the video is only the director’s cut, and over at Ty’s website, you can create your own version of the video. So watch the director’s cut and make ya own

SOMEONE OUT THERE

a3575499237_10

There’s a new single out through the Famous Class LAMC series, and this one comes from two of our favorites: White Fence and Jack Name. The White Fence track is full of all the bedroom jangle and lysergic turn-arounds we’ve come to expect from him, but the Jack Name track is what really has us going. “Belly Full of Blood” starts out with a two minute shit-scary dirge of droning tension before it all dissolves into a good time glam time dance floor anthem. So good. As with all LAMC singles, all proceeds go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music. Pick it up for the good of the people here.

And no official announcements have been made, but word on the street is Jack Name’s finishing up the follow-up to Light Show as we speak. We’ll keep you posted as we receive more information…

BIKERS WELCOME! NO COLORS!

1407104549meltasia

Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza. For the last few years, these have been the largest music festivals money could buy a ticket to. Of course money isn’t everything, and as we have gotten older, it’s become harder and harder to find artists in these line-ups worth getting excited about. All respect to Outkast and Wilco, but where are the artists that you can truly look forward to rather than just plan your trips around?

Enter MELTASIA, a first-time experience/experiment for the luckier masses. Prepare yourself for legends like Nik Turner’s Hawkwind, Cherie Currie, and Black Oak Arkansas playing alongside working-class favorites like Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Cheap Time, and Dino’s Boys all in a field in Northern Georgia. We could tell you more, but if that isn’t enough information to convince you that this will be a righteous time, you may be on the wrong website. The big weekend is less than a week away, but it’s sure to be one for the ages. Check out all the details here, and get your tickets here.

DANCE LIKE NO OTHER

QUICHENIGHT

PHOTO BY: DYLAN CARVER

Quichenight is the moniker of Brett Rosenberg and in the last four years he’s released multiple cassettes that have some how floated under our radar. The albums are filled with splendid powepop songs reminiscent of Emitt Rhodes, Todd Rundgren and Big Star. If the dude above looks familiar, you’ve probably seen him playing guitar in the latest lineup of PUJOL, and if you’ve had the pleasure of seeing Quichenight live in the last bit you’ve also probably noticed another couple of familiar faces, Asher Horton, bringing the jangly 12-string guitar, and Daniel Pujol on drums. In current QuicheNews, there will be a Cassette Store Day release from Lamb Speed Records entitled – Room Temperature – that will be available September 27th. Listen to the single “Tommy Tune” below and check out his other albums here.

PHOTO BY: GEOFFREY SHREWSBURY

Memphis punks – NOTS - are hitting America’s highways this summer and their first stop is Nashville! The last time they graced us with their presence was in January of 2013 with Parquet Courts at The Owl Farm. They’re back tho and performing with Nashville’s own D. Watusi, Cy Barkley, and Western Medication at a brand new house space, Kno House. If you’re a facebooker we’ve linked you to the event page — just click the flyer + check out the rest of their tour dates here. This will be fun and totally worth your time, don’t miss it!
