Shitgazed

April 11th, 2011

Psychedelic Horseshit are a gloriously messy band rooted in lo-fi punk experimentation, allthough they’ve kept a step ahead of the lo-fi scene by inventing a new sub genre they have christened ‘shitgaze’. Hailing from Colombus, Ohio, the Rust Belt capital MTV described as “ground zero for lo-fi punk, They began using a bunch of battered equipment, recording to four-track cassette, with a cardboard box for a bass drum and junkshop guitars and keyboards. All of a sudden, via a joke reference on their myspace page, ‘shitgaze‘ (the lo-fi genre-term they coined in satire of the early-’90s British shoegaze phenomenon) blew up and found them getting interviewed by MTV as well as being written up everywhere from Spin to NME. In 2010, a limited edition cassette, ‘Acid Tape’ signalled a move towards something more dazed and liquified, increasingly electronic.Signing to FatCat in late 2010, Psychedelic Horseshit‘s debut album for the label, ‘Laced‘, is due out in May 2011. ‘Puff’, the first track of ‘Laced‘, has inspired me to create this graphic scribble, and glued me to my tiny headphones for the last couple of hours or so…

Neon Indian playing Bonnaroo & more new tour dates

February 12th, 2010

It’s shaping up to be a big 2010 for Neon Indian, just as SPIN predicted. The band made its network television debut this Thursday night, Feb. 11 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The band was also recently announced as part of the Bonnaroo 2010 line-up and will be hitting the US and European Summer festival circuit with a vengeance (stay tuned for more on that!). Neon Indian recently remixed Grizzly Bear’s track “Cheerleader” not once, but twice, if you haven’t heard those remixes yet, listen here, stay tuned for many more high profile remixes to be unleashed throughout the year. The band’s Laundromatinee session was also recently posted on My Old Kentucky Blog.

An elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo. Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, Dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui. Neon Indian’s bedroom ballads have already forged Psychic Chasms, the debut full-length. They’ve been compared to New Order, Future Bible Heroes, and most recently said to sound like a saw-wave cutting a Doobie Brother’s song in half. Expect much racket to be had from this fresh-faced crew. Listen to Terminally Chill

FM BELFAST ANNOUNCES US DEBUT

January 30th, 2010

After being one of the most talked-about bands all over Europe, due in no small part to their energetic and engaging live show, Reykjavik’s FM Belfast are set to release their debut album in the US, how to make friends. Due out in Spring 2010 on Kimi Records (Benni Hemm Hemm, Retro Stefson, Reykjavik!), how to make friends is a careening electro-pop album full of unexpected jolts and turns, including trumpets, cowbells, and plenty of seething synths. After a local release, how to make friends sold over 5,000 copies in Iceland, and with it the band is poised to bring the party to the states.

What started as an informal duo in 2005 has developed into a sizable army of anywhere from 3 to 45 performers (including members of múm and Benni Hemm Hemm). Despite not having an album out in the US last year, FM Belfast became a must-see band at SXSW ’09, giving out sticks of gum and drawings with their CDs and playing to packed venues. The Austin Chronicle listed them as one of their “Bands to Watch,” while the Denver Post named them one of the “Top 10 New Finds”, calling them “one of the most refreshing” bands at SXSW. SPIN soon joined the bandwagon, making them “Artist of the Day” and proclaiming, “It’s gloriously kitschy, Commodore-64-style digipop… kind of like a low-fi version of Royksopp.” The BBC enthused, “Last night I got as excited by a new band as I’ve ever been in my life… FM Belfast are utterly fantastic.”

In the meantime, FM Belfast kept busy remixing tracks for other artists including múm, Retro Stefson, Skatar, Nix Noltes, Gus Gus, and Kasper Bjorke. After years of playing their songs to live audiences, FM Belfast is set to expand their reach with how to make friends.

THE WAVE PICTURES MAKE NORTH AMERICAN DEBUT WITH DOUBLE CD COMPRISED OF TWO MOST RECENT ALBUMS (INSTANT COFFEE BABY AND IF YOU LEAVE IT ALONE) TO PLAY US DATES INCLUDING APPEARANCE AT SXSW 2010

January 21st, 2010

Moshi Moshi Records is proud to announce the April 27th release of The Wave Pictures’ Double CD, comprised of their two most recent albums Instant ‘Coffee Baby’ (8/10 stars in NME) and ‘If You Leave It Alone’, the latter named by Spin as one of the “10 Best Albums You Might Have Missed in 2009.” It marks the North American debut for the talented and literary minded lo-fi pop trio from the quiet village of Wymeswold England. This spring and summer they plan to play dates in the United States, including a trip to SXSW 2010.

The Wave Pictures are David Tattersall (Vocals, Guitar), Franic Rozcki (Guitar), and Jonny “Huddersfield” Helm (Drums). The music on Instant Coffee Baby and comes off as poetic stream of conscious. The off the cuff nature has as much to do with the bands style as it does how the songs were recorded. Both albums were done primarily as live takes with minimal overdubs in the form of backing vocals and the odd brass or string instrument. The more recent of the two (If You Leave It Alone) was the product of a mere twelve hours in the studio. The resulting recordings are rife with cunning lyrics that are complimented by clever melodic guitar solos, all floating free from the weight of over-thought production. Though decidedly lo-fi the arrangements on many songs are complex, incorporating, trumpets, saxophone, violin, and multiple vocalists that deliver witty asides and sing along with Tattersall.
