Best Coast’s Fade Away Up for Preorder

L.A.’s Best Coast are following up last year’s excellent The Only Place with a mini album called Fade Away. The seven-song release features two songs she released on Record Store Day—“Fear of My Identity” and “Who Have I Become”—plus five more new ones. It’ll be out Oct 22 on frontwoman Bethany Cosentino’s new label, Jewel City. Read my interview with Best Coast here.

Crystal Antlers – “Rattlesnake” video

We’re already loving the new Crystal Antlers song “Rattlesnake,” and now its video is here, which matches the ’90s vibe of the song with some buzz-bin visuals. Beavis & Butthead would’ve loved this. Their latest album, Nothing is Real, is due Oct. 15 on Innovative Leisure.

Best Coast Announces Tour

Best Coast have announced a new tour, and true to form, they'll be playing with excellent bands such as Bleached, Lovely Bad Things and Guards. They'll hit the Fillmore Aug. 15, Big Sur's Henry Miller Library Aug. 16 and L.A.'s The El Rey Aug. 17, all with Bleached (the rest of Best Coast's tour dates can be found on their site.). They'll be debuting songs from their upcoming EP, which has no title or release date announced as of yet, but we'll keep you posted. If you were one of the lucky ones to pick up their recent "Fear of My Identity" b/w "Who Have I Become" Record Store Day 7", perhaps you'll hear those excellent songs too, in addition to those off last year's Jon Brion-produced The Only Place. Read my recent interview with Bleached here, last year's interview with Best Coast here, and check out Best Coast's entry into the Webby-winning "What's In My Bag?" below.

Stream 10 Record Store Day Songs

Posted by Billy Gil, April 15, 2013 02:25pm | Post a Comment

Record Store Day, taking place this year on April 20, will see seemingly countless reissues, but younger bands also take part, most of the time releasing new material on 7” vinyl. Below are a few that you can already stream and sample ahead of their release on Record Store Day. See a full list of releases we’ll have on RSD here. See what Amoeba will have in store for RSD here.

Dan Deacon – “Konono Ripoff No. 1”

The DJ/producer who’s known for producing colorful, ecstatic production takes a stab at Afrobeat, specifically the kind produced by the great Konono No. 1. The 7” will feature two versions of the track, performed by two sets of dual drummers: Kevin O'Meara and Jeremy Hyman on Side A; Denny Bowen and Dave Jacober on Side B. The cover art features the photo by the winner of an Instagram contest; you can see more submissions here.

 

Dutch Uncles – “Slave to the Atypical Rhythm”

Manchester art-pop group Dutch Uncles have covered the mother of art-pop: Grace Jones (or maybe she’s the aunt, Yoko Ono’s the mother?). Their new album Out of Touch in the Wild also was recently released on Memphis Industries, check it out alongside their cover of “Slave to the Atypical Rhythm.”
