Austin Chronicle

Austin Chronicle reviews The Zoltars new LP, out 2.24

Eschewing the sunless melancholy of 2013’s outstanding Walking Through the Dark, garage psych eggheads the Zoltars mine carefree nuggets on their third LP. Blue-ribbon songwriter Jared Zoltar adopts the persona of a peaceful acid casualty on Sixties opener “We Missed Out,” his plainspoken treble-talk penetrating three perfect chords and a primitive pounding that blurs lines between oldies-garage and post-punk.

BrooklynVegan

ew England psych punks The Ukiah Drag put out their bleary In The Reaper’s Quarters last year, and are now getting ready to head out on a string of dates around the US.

Kool Rock Radio shares Heaters' "Levitate Thigh"

Surf rock/psych trio Heaters have shared the video for their new single “Levitate Thigh”.  The 7-inch single, Mean Green/Levitate Thigh, will be out on April 28 on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. The band are currently preparing their first full-length, which will be out later this year.

CMJ.com

CMJ previews B-side to upcoming Heaters 7"

Grand Rapids, MI, fuzz-rock trio Heaters have a new 7-inch single, Mean Green/Levitate Thigh, out April 28 on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. The B-side starts in a surf/spy flick vein that soon enough vibrates out into speedy psych-punk riffing then back under the waves. And as you’ll see in the new appropriately thighs-a-flyin’ video for the song, Fred Astaire has no trouble dancing to it all.

Under The Gun Review

Dance To Heaters' New Video

Garage rocker act Heaters have announced a new 7″ release due out April 28 via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. The Mean Green 7″ B-side, “Levitate Thigh,” has gotten a music video to promote the release, and the short clip is just simple enough to keep your attention without burning your eyes. Anything more intense would make the garage rock too much to handle. Then again, we’re always down for a doozy.

NPR

Stream Happyness' "Naked Patients" at NPR's All Songs Considered

Happyness is three guys from London with a breathtaking range of sounds, like Wilco crossed with Sparklehorse, Pavement and gritty garage rock. With lyrics that are unexpected and dark, but also humorous, Happyness takes us on a bright but twisted trip on this song “Naked Patients.”

On a related note, how many great freakin albums has this label released in the past couple of months? Incredible.

Stereogum

Stereogum premieres Ex-Cult's new video "Clinical Study"

Memphis post-punk outfit Ex-Cult mediate their new breed of hardcore with the manic energy of what I can only imagine an early Dischord show must have felt like. It’s timeless. The band released their latest EP, Cigarette Machine, last week, and today we’re premiering a fan-shot video for the lead track, “Clinical Study.” Ex-Cult’s recordings hone an all-consuming and addictive vivacity that makes you want to see them perform live, so, it’s a pleasure to watch a video of footage shot by Michael Valdes of various recent Ex-Cult shows. The band’s frontman, Chris Shaw, explains how the video came about:

Fader

Fader premieres Destruction Unit's video "Final Flight"

We’re well aware that Destruction Unit puts on an intense live show, and the new video for “Final Flight” from 2013’s Deep Trip celebrates that wild, effects-heavy abrasiveness with dissociative fade outs and a muted color pallette. It was directed by Hollywood-based artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt (who was recently highlighted in our preview of the LA Art Book Fair) and filmed on location in Joshua Tree, where the Arizona five-piece hilariously played a show inside a restaurant filled with families: kids, parents, grandparents. “About halfway through, the restaurant was empty,” the band told FADER in an email. “By the third song in the set, the owner had kicked us out. One guy loved it, and gave us an ounce of weed he’d grown himself.”

Grist

Mac DeMarco plays acoustic version of "Salad Days" at Pickathon for Grist

With his sunny voice and slightly off-kilter guitaring, gap-toothed Canadian indie-rocker Mac DeMarco might leave you jonesing for summer. So to tide you over ’til warmer times, here he is performing an acoustic version of “Salad Days” at last year’s Pickathon.

Stereogum

Stereogum premieres Woodsman's video for "Healthy Life"

Last year the psych guitar gods of Woodsman released their third, self-titled album, and one of the standout tracks was the spacey, ghost-train chug of “Healthy Life.” To coincide with a special re-pressing of Woodsman, the Brooklyn-via-Denver group has released the video for the track.

NYCTaper

NYCTaper streams Honey @ Union Pool 1.28.15

Honey are a relatively new band who showed up hungry as the openers for Viet Cong at Union Pool recently. Composed of Cory Feierman on bass/vocals, Dan Wise on guitar/vocals and Will Schmiechen on drums, these guys showed up ready to play, putting even the very talented headliners on notice that mediocrity would not be accepted. The band members’ skill reflects some their resumes; one or more of them have been part of Amen Dunes, Psychic Ills and Stupid Party. Likewise, early invites to play with the likes of J Mascis, King Tuff, Endless Boogie, Crystal Stilts and Destruction Unit tell us that other bands are taking notice.

Pitchfork

Pitchfork announces Ty Segall's acoustic solo tour dates

Ty Segall has announced plans for a short solo acoustic tour, following a set at Burgerama fest in Santa Ana.

Odonis Odonis' video for "Order in the Court" is nominated for a Prism Prize 2015
