Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer shares Damaged Bug "Jet In Jungle" video, streams album

Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer has a synthesizer-driven side project called Damaged Bug. He’ll release the new album Cold Hot Plumbs on June 1 via his label Castle Face. Dwyer has also released the video for “Jet in Jungle”. Directed by S. Wadsworth Adams, it features a puppet pilot taking, yes, his jet through a jungle.

Pitchfork

Pitchfork reviews Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles' Oh Man, Cover The Ground

Cleveland is a guitarist first and foremost, a vocalist second, and a songwriter third. Her lyrics tend toward a kind of brisk poetry, stark and ominous and generally reluctant to dwell on any one moment or sensation.

Detroit Metro Times

Detroit Metro Times previews Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles' upcoming show at the UFO factory

I’m really excited to see what the live show by Cleveland & the Sandcastles will be like. We all know that La Luz is one of the best live bands around, so odds are very good that this will be a killer, not-to-miss show.

Consequence of Sound

Consequence of Sound shares Mikal Cronin's new video "Say" for Funny Or Die

Mikal Cronin has teamed with Funny or Die to create a video for “Say”, one of the standout tracks appearing on the singer-songwriter’s latest album, MCIII.

Consequence of Sound

Consequence of Sound names Fuzz one of the best acts at Sasquatch Music Festival 2015

Segall was a savage behind the kit. Grimy riff after grimy riff oozed off the stage.

KEXP

KEXP features Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles' Oh Man, Cover The Ground in "Out This Week"

Local artist, Shana Cleveland & the Sandcastles, leads this week’s batch with their debut full-length. Yates notes, “this Seattle project spearheaded by La Luz frontwoman Shana Cleveland is an often-mesmerizing set of psych-tinged folk-pop with an acoustic-oriented sound featuring gentle finger-picked guitar, occasional cello, piano and clarinet, hypnotic, shuffling rhythms and delicate vocals.”

The New York Times

The New York Times' Ben Ratliff reviews Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles' Oh Man, Cover The Ground

This music is quiet and delicate and satisfied with small moments of emphasis: the hard pop and ring she puts on various low and high notes in fingerpicking patterns, as in “Butter & Eggs,” which is about driving and the smell of seawater.

Pitchfork

Pitchfork reviews Thee Oh Sees' 'Mutilator Defeated at Last'

Mutilator Defeated at Last is Thee Oh Sees’ first post-hiatus LP to be recorded using the band’s re-staffed touring lineup.

SF Weekly

SF Weekly covers Fuzz at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco

Guitar chops, drum chops, and most definitely bass chops: The Fuzz has it all. The band has a reputation for knowing how to improvise, jam, and shred through a set list. That’s why it sold out the Great American Music Hall Wednesday night on a double bill with only the support of Los Angeles’ Lamps.

DIY Magazine

DIY Magazine shares Ultimate Paintings lead single from their forthcoming LP, Green Lanes

Green Lanes is due for release on 7th August via Chicago garage rock/psych label Trouble In Mind and finds Hoare and Cooper contributing five songs each.

Exclaim

Exclaim announces Tim Presley and Cate Le Bon collaboration as Drinks

San Francisco’s Tim Presley and Welsh-born Cate Le Bon both have fruitful careers in their own right; the former has released a string of albums as White Fence, and the latter is a respected solo songwriter. Now, they’ve teamed up for a collaborative project called Drinks, with an album coming out this summer.

Noisey

Noisey premieres Juan Wauters' new video for "I'm All Wrong"

Queens-based crooner Juan Wauters is back with a second album of existential lonely folk and a ridiculously charming video for “I’m All Wrong” to go along with it. Seriously, just try not to smile as he bikes down through Flushing Meadows Park serenading strangers.

SF Weekly

SF Weekly review Ex-Cult's show at the Hemlock Tavern

Sweat dripped, composure was lost and guitar strings broke, but the band powered through an electrified set with songs from recent releases Bleeding Moon and Hypertension.

NPR

NPR premiers the title track from the forthcoming Drinks LP

Cate Le Bon wrote some of my favorite words of 2013 on her album Mug Museum. White Fence is the swirly psych-like music of Tim Presley. Cate and Tim are friends — Cate played guitar on a tour with White Fence — and so now there’s this: DRINKS. DRINKS has an album coming August 21 and this is the title track, called “Hermits on Holiday.”

The Guardian

The Guardian interviews "New Orleans musical legend" Quintron

The humidity peaks in the dark nightclub packed with hundreds of excited, drunk bodies, when New Orleans one-man-band Quintron turns the key on his “Drum Buddy”, lighting it up like a miniature aurora borealis.

Philly.com

Mac DeMarco announces a solo-set benefit concert

For the second year, his charity, Make the World Better Foundation, will host a benefit concert with a stacked lineup: Mac DeMarco, locals Marian Hill and The Suffers are on the bill.

Alt Citizen

Alt Citizen streams Death Valley Girl's "Wait For You"

LA’s Death Valley Girls just released “WAIT FOR YOU,” a cutting, ’60s-inspired B-side to “Summertime,” a single they released just last month. A steady, thumping backbeat serves as the foundation for layers of organ tones, fuzzed-out guitars, and howling vocals.

Pitchfork

Pitchfork announces Mikal Cronin's tour dates

In support of his new album MCIII, Mikal Cronin is heading out on a tour that includes shows with Father John Misty and Death Cab for Cutie. After his European dates in May and June, he’s booked to travel across North America this fall.

Mac DeMarco’s eight-song “mini-LP” Another One is out August 7 via Captured Tracks, and he’s shared a song from the record. It’s called “The Way You’d Love Her”. He’s also announced even more dates to his already lengthy tour.

Spin

Spin shares Mac DeMarco's "The Way You'd Love Her"

On August 7, Mac DeMarco will release a project he’s calling the Another One mini-LP, and to tease its release three months ahead of time, the alt-scuzz musician has shared “The Way You’d Love Her.” The new cut is breezy and head-over-heels gushy.
