Friday (Thursday) Horror Trailer - Christine

I'll be taking a couple of days off to visit with my sister for the next couple of days, so here's this week's Friday Horror Trailer a day early...


Uniform

Industrial noise duo Uniform is now a trio, and aside from having just released a collaborative album with The Body a couple of weeks ago, the band now has a new record on the horizon as well.  "The Long Walk," inspired by and named for the Stephen King novel of the same name, utilizes those same themes and abundant cynicism to decry late stage capitalism, organized religion, and the overall ugliness of the human condition.  Watch the video for "The Walk" below and pre-order the record here from Sacred Bones.

Sam Gendel and Sam Wilkes

I only just discovered the experimental electronic jazz of saxophonist Sam Gendel a couple of weeks ago, and now the artist has another new album out, this time around as a collaboration with like minded musician Sam Wilkes.  The duo crafted the unassuming and bubbling "Music for Saxofone & Bass Guitar," a slowburn of improvisation using the aforementioned sax and bass as well as some electronic ambience and tones.  Listen to album opener "BOA" below and snag the cassette here from Leaving Records.

Vicktor Taiwò

I caught Vicktor Taiwò on a whim during SXSW at an Innovative Leisure day party, and was quite blown away by his dense, atmospheric, and smoky brand of electric soul and R&B.  His album "Joy Comes in Spirit" came out a couple of weeks ago on the label and it's definitely worth a listen.  Check out "Shovel Moonlight" below and get the record here.

ORB

Australian heavy psych band ORB have a new, as of yet untitled album heading our way sometime in the near future.  For the time being, they've released a song from said album for our listening pleasure, the thumping, crunchy "Space Between the Planets."  Listen below, and be on the lookout for that record soon from Flightless.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!

New Parents

New Parents is the project of former Sore Eros (hey, i remember them) member Adam Langellotti.  The artist does a kind of lo-fi bedroom take on psych-tinged folk rock.  Listen to "Well" below and get the "Transient Response" album here.

The Babe Rainbow

Here's some sunshiny psych pop from Australia's The Babe Rainbow.  New album "Double Rainbow" is out next month on Flightless.  In the meantime, watch the wonderfully childlike video from "Supermoon" below.


Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread

Maryland's Michael Nau makes a kind of country, folk, and psych indebted Americana, dusty old pop songs that sound like love letters to a bygone era of sound.  His latest album with The Mighty Thread, August's titled "Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread" begins with "Less Than Positive," a little bit of wall-of-sound pop folk that's got Lee Hazlewood's influence all over it.  Listen below, and pre-order the record here from the artist.


Colin Stetson - Hereditary OST

Easily one of the most amazing artists i've been lucky enough to see perform in the last decade is the extraordinary saxophonist Colin Stetson.  Mostly known for his work with indie rock groups like Arcade Fire and Bon Iver, the artist really hits his peaks when he goes at it solo, creating all manner of haunting an exhilarating sound with his sax.  And recently, he was tapped to score the new horror film "Hereditary," which if my fellow horror hound friends are to be believed, is something quite terrifying.  Stetson's music is the perfect atmospheric match to keep the chill in your spine and goosebumps on your flesh.  Listen to "Funeral" below and get the album from Milan Records.
