best of the weekIt’s that time again…our regular round-up of rollicking (and not-so-rollicking) new tunes from the previous seven days.

This time we have the welcome return of Cass McCombs alongside the infectious psych-rock of White Room, the scrappy, confrontational punk of MOURN and the new collaboration between Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando, folksinger Marciana Jones and the wonderful Willy Mason called TSP plus six more.

In all honesty the charms and delights of Deerhoof have largely bypassed us here at MM, but you should never say never and their latest album La Isla Bonita contains the stand out track Exit Only which we’ve loved since the first time we heard it.

Now the song has a fittingly insane video starring Michael Shannon of Boardwalk Empire and Man Of Steel fame playing two versions of himself – one seemingly torturing the other across a table. Bonkers, but brilliant.

Watch it here.

A (Belated) Round Up.

We missed these recently. You shouldn’t!

First up are three tracks from Castle Face’s new re-imagining of the Velvet Underground & Nico album to celebrate 45 years since that seminal release. It features previous MM alumni The Fresh & Onlys, Burnt Ones, and Thee Oh Sees amongst others – and is limited to just 1,000 copies, on banana yellow vinyl with original art by another MM fave David Shrigley – it is a pretty neat package. Download Ty Segall’s maniacal take on Femme Fatale and listen to White Fence doing Run Run Run and Kelly Stoltz tackling Sunday Morning.

We also have another hypnotically brilliant track from The Luyas new Animator album, together with the bizarre prospect of Kate Nash guesting on a Fidlar track from their forthcoming self-titled debut – and don’t worry it’s really good. Alternatively check out the psych-blues of American Royalty’s Matchstick or (in a similar vein) Leapling’s Seventeen. Elsewhere Deerhoof and Half Waif are the latest free download in the Less Artists More Condos singles series.

Honeymilk’s debut single It Might Be is as boisterous and as spiky a slab of indie rock as anything we’ve heard recently, and there is another very welcome taste from Outer Minds and their new album Behind The Mirror. By contrast Tamarin play a gentle blend of sweetly introspective folk, Seems A Laugh comes from recently released long player Shake The Ghost.

Weinland’s new album Los Processaur is out on the 6th November and there are echoes of the Decemberists in the literary tones of Another Dollar Rainy Day. Mini Dresses are a new dream pop band from Austin, Texas whose free download of Hot Sun sounds like the Cocteau Twins on meth amphetamine (in an entirely good way).

From Rollo & Grady’s excellent Best New Artists of 2012 feature we have Tashaki Miyaki’s brilliant cover of Father John Misty’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings and finally we also have Daniel Rossen’s stunningly gorgeous 2009 track Untitled, which is one of his demo tracks that has been “lying around”, and which he is now giving away for free.

New from Deerhoof

Joyful Noise Recordings dropped us a line to say they are to release Deerhoof’s new album on cassette!

January 25th will see the release of Deerhoof vs.Evil, on cassette. The band recently signed with Polyvinyl, who will be releasing the album on LP and CD.

It is probably true to say that few bands are as organically groundbreaking, experimental and ultimately interesting as this four-piece. For the last 16 years Deerhoof has consistently confounded all expectations placed on them, and if taster track The Merry Barracks is anything to go by, that won’t be changing any time soon.

The cassette edition of “Deerhoof vs. Evil” is…

– Limited to 500, hand-numbered copies

– Comes with digital download (320 kbps MP3s & FLAC)

– Pressed on a green tint cassette with high-quality chrome tape.

You can pre-order here. Vive la cassette!

Visit their MySpace here.
