CRACKED AND HAZY

Speaking of Record Store Day, you might have heard the new Oh Sees record, Drop, will be hitting the shelves that day as well. Most bands don’t release records only four months after they go on “indefinite hiatus,” but hey, we’re not complaining a bit.

Thee Oh Sees are a band known for venturing out into new sounds. From the bedroom folk featured on The Cool Death Of Island Raiders to the hard psych of Help and the kool kraut of Putrifiers II, they’ve covered quite a bit of ground throughout the years. Even still, “The Lens” finds the Dwyer and company sounding unlike they ever have before. Most notably, the track doesn’t feature so much as a lick of guitar. Instead it’s driven with drums, strings, and flourishes of french horn. Makes us feel like we’re hearing Magical Mystery Tour for the first time all over again. Makes us feel GOOD.

Check out the video for “The Lens” below, and pick up Drop through Castle Face Records on April 19th.

WHOLE NEW CREW

By now it should be clear what big William Tyler fans we are here at Deadquarters. We go to his shows on the reg, we sing his praises on the reg, we even put out a single for him. Just the same, there is no way we could have been prepared for what we experienced when Willy T did his first full band show last summer. With the aid of the band [which features members of JEFF the Brotherhood, Natural Child, and more], William took songs we already knew, beautiful and intricate in their original form, and turned them inside out, shining light on dimensions of his playing and songcraft that we had never before noticed. It was unreal, and I stand by that it was the best show I saw in 2013.

With all of that said, we were of couse delighted when word came that William would be releasing a 12-inch EP of recordings made with this same band. The record’s called Lost Colonyand it will feature one new song, one reworked song from last year’s Impossible Truth, and a Michael Rother [Neu!] cover. That new song, “Whole New Dude,” was just released as a teaser a couple weeks ago. You can listen to it below.

Lost Colony is coming out though Merge Records on April 29. That’s Record Store Day if you don’t already know, so pick it up from your finest local brick-and-motar if you can. It’s also worth noting that William will be opening for Daniel Rossen at Mercy Lounge tonight. We haven’t heard anything about him having the band with him for this one, but it’s sure to be a great show regardless.

FREAKIN’ WEEKEND V [IN PICS]

When we started working on Freakin’ Weekend V last October, I’m not sure we knew what a roller coaster it would be. We encountered some setbacks, but we also had quite a few things work in our favor. Now with the weekend behind us and the memories concretely formed, I can honestly say that it exceeded all of my expectations. Racking my brain for highlights proves fruitless. The weekend as a whole shines alone as one of the highlights of the last year.

Thank you Jesse. Thank you Donoho. Thank you Cy. Thank you Cam. Thank you Julia. Thank you Josh. Thank you Alexa. Thank you Trent. Thank you Kevin. Thank you Sean. Thank you Emily. Thank you Amelia. Thank you Elise. Thank you Daniel. Thank you Bingham and Drew. Thank you Christina.

But most of all, THANK YOU BANDS AND FREAKS. Nashville is a beautiful city full of beautiful people, and that warm beauty was in full bloom those three days.

As always, photos taken by three of the baddest babes in town: Julia BeeEmily Quirk, and Amelia Anderson.

GREENER PASTURES

MAC DEMARCO

He’s goofy bordering on over-confident, and he’s risen to attention so quickly you might wonder if it’s just a hype machine. Underneath it all though, there’s no denying Mac Demarco writes a mean pop song. Songs like “Ode to Viceroy” and “She’s Really All I Need” stand alone as proof that he’s earned his newfound success, and luckily for us, he’s ready to drop the next installment in his bedroom weirdo-pop saga. Salad Days [out April 1st on Captured Tracks] pick ups where his first full-length left off. There’s the signature chorus-tinged guitar, lyrics about growing up, and an unapologetic Kinks rip, and that’s only in the first song. The record is available to stream in it’s entirety over at NPR right now.

Mac and his crew will also be coming through our fair city on April 16th, and they’re bringing labelmate Juan Wauters with them. Tickets are available from Exit/In now. Get yrs before it sells out [it definitely will].
