A touring companion with Woodsman are, Weekend, who completed work on new album with Monte Vallier, who produced their highly-lauded Sports LP and Red EP. They have just anounced a special show at Cameo Gallery as new Brooklyn residents. Stream and get f..ed up to the grainy hazy ‘Your own nothing’.
..”With just one week until opening day, we’re super excited to announce the additions of the Raajamahal (the collaboration between Pat Murano of No Neck Blues Band and Decimus, Carla Backer from Baba Yaga, and Santa Wolanczyk from Flower Orgy) at Death By Audio on July 13th and a first ever duo set of Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Loren Connors (Haunted House) at The Stone on July 14th”….

Since I know nothing about these guys, Land of Blood and Sunshine, I will let you listen and hope you’ll appreciate their EP as much as I do. I cant really put my finger on it, but there is something real fresh about their sound. Although not a new release (released a year ago), there is a strong sense of urgency about their music, and it made me think about 70’s prog rock bands and innovative acts like Micachu and the Shapes. I really dig these guys and this EP made my night..Buy the mother
SOB stands for ‘Sound Of A Bitch’and is a new extension of The Lofiles org platform. We have decided, after 4 years of fruitful blogging, to expose the artists we believe in to a wider crowd, and to try to run this web station in a unlimited fashion as possible. We are really open to suggestions, recommendations, if there is an interesting artist you might think of that fits the Lofiles bill, Lofi, Experimental, Musical, Minimalistic, Uncompromising, etc, let us know. In the meantime, visit us HERE
The Memories are set to release their debut self-titled LP on April 24th on Underwater Peoples. The songs are short, the melodies sweet, and the album is filles with flavours of surf rock, Motown and Stax in the early days, and some ’70s New York punk.
I like the message I got from Calaca Strides:..” “I know you music bloggers get swamped in music, but if you find time to have a little listen to this it’d be much appreciated.. Calaca Strides”.. Actually, all I do is seek music like this all day long. So, you made my job easier and I will share this gorgeous lofi folkish acoustic somewhat psychedelic song with you guys..
Certain artists and tracks I have reviewed in the past few months have touched me in a different way and stay with me for a long while ( It doesn’t mean others dont). I have decided to make this fall compilation for those of you who slept on those tracks or never heard them. This mix will be available for streaming only here (Lofiles) and on Soundcloud.
