Big Chief Bully Wosher

 

Bully - Milkman 7"

Bully – Milkman 7″

Fresh off a nice little tour to Austin for SXSW with appearances at the Third Man Rolling Record Store and Jesse Baker’s ripper of an Exit-In showcase (not to mention their well-deserved attention from NME earlier this month), the babes from Bully are back with an excellent second single, which is poised to sell out more quickly than the first. As heard below, the guitars provide a nice buzzy foundation for Stuart’s drums and Alicia’s vocals to really shine. Plus, a head honcho from Adventure Time designed the sleeve, which is the best and most appropriate idea for album art I’ve heard in some time. A press of 500 records begin shipping this Saturday, April 26 from our buddies at Chicken Ranch Records, so snag yours!

KEEP ON RISING

10270053_10201808760449907_416166599_n

Daniel Pujol isn’t only our main man, our mushy gushy, sexy scary nightmare in shining amour. He’s also once of this city’s most vital artists, and he’s got a new album coming out. The record’s called KLUDGE, and though it doesn’t hit the streets until May 20, we’re throwing a little shindig to celebrate its release on the weekend before.

Welcome to PUJOL SUCKS III: MOJO RISING. The man of the hour will be there in all his holy glow, and don’t you know he’s bring his friends with him. Aside from it already being only a $5 show, there will also be plenty of swag at the cheapest prices you’ll find. We’re talking limited fish tank colored vinyl via Saddle Creek for $10, cassettes via Burger Records for $5, even special edition posters and shirts for only $10 each. Peep the full lineup below, stream the single from the record here, and get hype NOW. This will be a righteous occasion.

YOUR BACK WILL BREAK

TotalControl-ART-lowres

We have been patiently waiting for over two years, and the day has finally come for a new Total Control LP. Now I’m not sayin’ they’re the best band around. I’m just sayin’ there’s hardly anyone better than them, and this new single is proof. “Flesh War” isn’t a far cry from what we heard on 2011′s Henge Beat, but if it’s any indication of the overall direction of Typical System [out June 24 on Iron Lung Records], we may have found our Official Summer 2014 Summer Jam for Summer. Here’s to hoping for a US tour from these Aussies real soon…

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.
