Eerie Organization. Good for her. The first release is a debut album, "Natural Born Losers," a collection of broken, warped, and floaty alt-folk pop hymns from Nicole Dollanganger. First taste "You're So Cool" sounds pretty nice. Take a listen below.

Blackball Universe, and totally worth of your attention. Listen to "She Don't Cry No More" below, a throwback, blues rager that demands to be blared at an outdoor tent revival somewhere, a crowd of swaying listeners with their hands in the air, just waiting to testify their own pain and/or gratitude. This dude jams.

One Way Static's next release is the amazing and beautiful Michael Holm scores for the 1970's films "Mark of the Devil" and "Mark of the Devil II." As per usual with these horror score reissues, i'm stoked. Take a listen to "Liebesthema" below. You may also recognize it from its use in "Hobo with a Shotgun."

Storming the Base. It sounds like it could have come out yesterday or thirty years ago, an icy cold warehouse pulse. Listen to B-side "Passenger Seat" below and get it here.

Relapse. Listen to the title track below and pre-order here. It's pretty damn great, and anything that references "Barbarella" is okay by me.

City Slang, and the first taste is an epic and delirious mix of gothic folk, prog, and doom metal. "Come Wander With Me/Deliverance" begins with a cover of an old folk song originally penned for an episode of "The Twilight Zone" and sung by Bonnie Beecher. The original is a marvel, but Ms. Von Hausswolff's take does not disappoint. Call me hooked. Listen below.

Mom + Pop, but you can listen to "Slumlord" below right now...and dance.

Domino Records. "Beach Music" is due in October, but you can go ahead and listen to "Bug" below. It's a wonderful and soothing lo-fi guitar breeze, like listening to some ridiculously talented kid make music in the apartment next to yours. It's inviting and innovative, and i cannot recommend this guy's whole catalog enough.

Drag City. And i probably know more people who will be annoyed by this news than excited. While i will admit that Newsom's particular brand of folky, baroque pop is an acquired taste, it's one that i thoroughly enjoy. Watch the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for "Sapokanikan" below and pre-order the Steve Albini-engineered album here.

Terror Vision Records, and their debut release is the Chuck Cirino soundtrack for the 1988 Traci Lords vehicle "Not of This Earth." Listen to a sampler of the record below and buy the thing here.
Saturday, August 8, 2015
Cascine Records, but you can listen to the blippy, bleepy, lo-fi synth, elevator music of "Is This Really Love?" below.
Friday, August 7, 2015
Warner Music called "What Went Down." The title track just got a remix from producer The Haxan Cloak, and it's kind of intense. Listen below.

Heavenly Recordings is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and are releasing a slew of singles for the event. One of those singles is an excellent and faithful cover of Marc Almond's and Nico's "Your Kisses Burn" performed by Mark Lanegan and Beth Orton. The song is gorgeous and lush, Lanegan's dusty old vocals pairing nicely Orton's ghostly swoon and the orchestral accompaniment. Listen below.
