CMU Approves Homeshake

Homeshake is the kind-of-solo-alias of Canada-based Peter Sagar, who at the times when he isn’t on his Homeshake grind, and/or looking for his shaver, also plays guitar in Mac Demarco’s band.


MXDWN reviews Purling Hiss' new album "Weirdon"

The finest moment of Weirdon, however, comes with its final song, “Six Ways To Sunday.” In a true haze of muddy, impassioned guitar Polizze establishes clarity amid the distortion, and rides on an eight minute long hook of technical prowess. While not enough to save the album from playing out as nothing more than ‘okay,’ “Six Ways” lends itself as a welcomed jam within an album ostensibly comprised of Nirvana tribute songs.

Columbus Alive

Columbus Alive recommends Ex-Cult's show at Ace of Cups

Ex-Cult, a menacing gang of Memphis rockers led by former Vile Nation frontman Chris Shaw, blisters paint on “Midnight Passenger,” the noisy, dirt-caked title track off its sophomore album. “I’m the voice from the sewer,” Shaw barks as his mates lay down an urgent, muddy squall that appears to emanate from the same grimy locale.


Alibi reviews Purling Hiss' new album "Weirdon"

Speaking of records to play at high volume while attempting to defy the laws of gravity, there’s always the latest from Pennsylvania power trio Purling Hiss. Weirdon is a completely rocked-out affair capable of reversing the Earth’s axis and other grand, transformative geological phenomena.

Salt Lake City Weekly

Salt Lake City Weekly talks about their upcoming La Luz show

The haunting, moody sounds produced by Seattle quartet La Luz is a perfect example of how music that’s labeled “surf” doesn’t necessarily have to be about beaches, sunshine and waves. As heard on their debut album, 2012 EP Damp Face, and their most recent release, 2013 full-length It’s Alive, La Luz might be flooding their guitars with plenty of surf-y reverb, but their lyrics—delivered with four-part doo-wop harmonies—are often about longing, loss and other serious topics. That’s not to say It’s Alive doesn’t have at least a little sun; instrumental track “Sunstroke” is downright sultry. But what’s most prominent is the fact that La Luz are skilled at taking a classic genre and making it their own. La Luz is opening for Ty Segall. Local rockers Max Pain & the Groovies are also on the bill.

Live In Limbo

Live In Limbo reviews La Luz's show at The Danforth Music Hall

e all girl surf rock group La Luz opened for Ty Segall, and they worked well as a calm before the storm. While they can be heavily linked to groups of their liking (Dum Dum Girls, for instance), one can easily see why they specifically were picked to open for one of the most explosive sets this year. Their music may be delightful with the occasional catchy beat, but the enjoyment of their set lies mostly within the band members themselves.


JamBase recommends Juan Wauters' album "N.A.P. North American Poetry"

It’s sometimes amazing how much musical space to be explored at that cusp of folk and rock. Juan Wauters, New Yorker by way of Uruguay, mixes a laid back vibe with scrappy melodies on his new album N.A.P North American Poetry, delivering a unique voice and point of view. This is a treat to listen to, the soundtrack to a great indie movie that hasn’t been made yet.

Consequence of Sound

Consequence of Sound reviews Purling Hiss new album "Weirdon"

At times, Weirdon is like a jukebox of tributes for Polizze’s guitar heroes, with fuzzed-out touchstones from ’60s garage, ’80s college rock, and even some ’90s grunge and pop punk.

Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly talk with Purling Hiss' Mike Polizze

Singer-songwriter Mike Polizze occupies the weird zone where experimental art music and eccentric rock ‘n’ roll overlap: an odd but fruitful territory that’s been home to generations of Weird Rock heroes from Frank Zappa to Ariel Pink. Recently Polizze’s expanded his project Purling Hiss from a solo endeavor to a trio, upping the music’s pop quotient in the process, and in the process created his most accessible album. Weirdon, released today on Drag City, delivers classic rock tunefulness enveloped in a haze of freaky vibes that feels a bit like the group’s label mate Ty Segall but just a touch more tweaked out.

Southern Minn

Southern Minn reviews Ty Segall's Manipulator

Perhaps no artist has become as revered in garage rock circles in such short order as Ty Segall.

Aesthetic Magazine

Aesthetic Magazine reviews Ty Segall's Danforth Music Hall show

He obliterated any subtleties during his performance at The Danforth Music Hall on September 21st as Segall and his band delivered a blunt force trauma inducing set that exposed the raw proto-punk DNA beneath the glammy sheen of Manipulator.

Consequence of Sound

Consequence of Sound announces Mac DeMarco's tour with Julian Casablancas

Julian Casablancas has enlisted some pretty exciting acts to open his upcoming US tour. Between October and November, The Strokes’ frontman will share the stage with Mr Twin Sister, Mac DeMarco, and Shabazz Palaces.


SoundBlab reviews Purling Hiss' new album "Weirdon"

Ah, Purling Hiss - a clever play on words. You’re still with me aren’t you? This band of scruffy herberts play Goddamn simple rock ‘n’ roll but revel in using slices of grunge-induced riffs and a nick-nack of guitar twists and turns.

Music Feeds

Music Feeds documents Dune Rats taking on the 7-Eleven BYO Slurpee Cup Day challenge

In case you have spent the day shielded by a social media blackout, we are currently about 20 hours into 7-Eleven’s majestical BYO Slurpee Cup Day, an annual celebration of the Slurpee where customers are invited to bring along their receptacle of choice and fill it to the brim with the sweet, sugary treat. It’s a beloved annual event and today Brisbane’s Dune Rats have taken the challenge to a whole new level.

Frontier Psychiatrist

Frontier Psychiatrist interview La Luz

You know when it just clicks? Like, when you’ve been struggling over a problem for hours, you look back, and the solution is there? That feeling, that perfect click, like you’re a cartoon character with a light bulb popping up over your head, is the epitome of Seattle’s La Luz, whose namesake directly translates to “the light.”

Tiny Mix Tapes

Tiny Mixtapes Features Dream Police's new track, Hypnotized

Dream Police are gearing up to tour. Dream Police will travel cross the land. Dream Police are tired of your Cheap Trick jokes. Reader, peep those dates, it’s Dream Police. And, reader, pre-order the album, it’s Dream Police.

Tone Deaf

Tone Deaf calls King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Aussie Garage Heroes

To say that Melburnian’s King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have gathered a bit of momentum in their short time together would be one hell of an understatement.

The Artery

The Artery reviews Ty Segall's Great Scott show

After nailing a string of songs from “Manipulator,” Segall actually apologized to Boston for not being here for so long. Looking around the room as he and the other musicians blistered the crowd with older songs like “Thank God for the Sinners,” I think it’s safe to say we forgave him.

The Line of Best Fit

The Line of Best Fit premiers photos from Ty Segall's Danforth Music Hall show

NYC Taper

NYC Taper features a live recording from Ty Segall's Webster Hall show

I’m not sure there is a currently working musician who produces as consistently excellent music — live or on record — at does Ty Segall.


Pitchfork features Mac DeMarco's nomination for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize

Arcade Fire’s Reflektor, Drake’s Nothing Was the Same, Mac DeMarco’s Salad Days, Chromeo’s White Women, Owen Pallett’s In Conflict, Tim Hecker’s Virgins, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan’s UZU, Timber Timbre’s Hot Dreams, Tanya Tagaq’s Animism, Shad’s Flying Colours, Jessy Lanza’s Pull My Hair Back, and Basia Bulat’s Tall Tall Shadow are were all up for the top prize. talks about Purling Hiss' new album

With a band name that alludes to the white noise of tape distortion and a track record of raw rock and roll, Philly’s Purling Hiss got tagged early as lo-fi garage rockers.

Boston Globe

The Boston Globe reviews Ty Segall's sold out show at Great Scott

Manipulator possesses a power-pop sensibility, thanks to its candy-bright hooks and Segall’s sometimes audaciously refined enunciation. The end result is a take on rock that could exist only in the 21st century, in part because its inspirations aren’t limited to one particular offshoot or era.

Chart Attack

Chart Attacks reviews Ty Segall's sold out Club Soda performance

Stage crashers were welcome to stay and ham it up for as long as they wanted, or until the guitar stacks blasted them off into the swarming crowd. The everyman who also happens to be a guitar god, that’s our Ty.
