So much West Coast goodness coming our way this week, I’ll just get right into it …
New Ariel Pink – “Only In My Dreams”
debuted a new song this week from his upcoming Mature Themes
, the regal-sounding “Only In My Dreams.” Loved the “Baby”
cover, but it’s great to hear that his new originals are great, too. Mature Themes
is due Aug. 17 on 4AD.
New Ty Segall Coming — Again
Won’t I ever shut up abou this guy
? Not when he’s making such great music so consistently. On the heels of his White Fence
and his searing Ty Segall Band
comes a new album just credited to the king of SF garage himself, called Twins
. It’s out Oct. 9 on Drag City. The next time he’s close to this neck of the woods is Oct. 14, at the Treasure Island Festival.
New Puro Instinct – “Dream Lover”
Speaking of Mr. Pink, his friends in dreamy duo Puro Instinct
have a new song, “Dream Lover.” It’s not a Mariah Carey cover
, although I bet that would sound amazing. This song finds them branching out, getting bigger than the sound they debuted on Headbangers in Ecstasy.
Sounds like My Bloody Valentine
by the pool. It’ll be on an EP later this year.
LOL Boys – “Changes” [ft. Heart Streets]
Originally hailing from Montreal, these guys make sort of lo-fi jazzy house music. And they are called LOL Boys
, which is pretty good, although I feel like it should have been LOL Boyz. I’m pretty bewildered by the whole thing in a good way. Their debut Changes
is out July 17.
