Woods – “Tambourine Light”
Even though they just released a new album, the excellent With Light and With Love, Woods already have a new, non-album single headed our way, the warm and luscious “Tambourine Light,” which will be paired with “Tomorrow’s Never Yesterday” (possibly a rejected James Bond movie title) on a single due July 8 from Captured Tracks and the band’s own Woodsist label. If you follow the whole Woodsist gang, you know they’ll be at Big Sur Aug. 5 and Pioneertown Aug. 16 for a pair of Woodsist fests, featuring Woods plus Foxygen, Skygreen Leopards and more.
Tijuana Panthers – “Nobo”
I’m already a fan of the new Tijuana Panthers album, judging by their new-wavey first single “Cherry Street” and now this, a languid poolside rocker called “Nobo.” “Where do you get your money?” makes for an unexpectedly excellent chorus. Wayne Interest is due June 3 (preorder here) on Innovative Leisure, and the band plays The Roxy that night for free with Northern Tigers; they’re touring the West Coast with Fucked Up in August.
