Mad Mackerel's Best Of October 2014

After a too long hiatus, we’ve resurrected our best of the month mix capturing our favourite tunes from October’s posts, plus a couple of new tracks too. So more than 25 songs to discover…dive in!

The September Girls – Veneer
Dark-hearted pop smothered in drenched feedback

.

God Damn – Horus
A red-hot burning molten pot of pop hooks and grinding, bludgeoning riffs and rhythms.

.

The Voyeurs – Stunners
Indie-psych rockers new single with nods to the tribal stomp of the Glitter Band and Iggy Pop to the colder, starker vignettes of Berlin era Lou Reed.

.

Dirt Dress – Revelations
Cultivated racket of guitars, horns, and drums that mixes surf rock with synths in a curiously beguiling way.

.

Amazing Snakeheads – Can’t Let You Go
More trashcan voodoo punk blues without parallel.

.

Ultimate Painting – Ten Street
Excellent retro style, casually lacksadasical, take on jangly indie rock with echoes of Pavement and Lou Reed.

.

The Wharves – The Grip
Gracefully minimal psych-rock with fuzzed out folk invoking the reverberated spook of 60s girl groups topped with crunchy guitar and thunderous drumming.

.

Maggie Bjorklund – Fro Fro Heart
Brooding, profound and unforgettable standout from Danish pedal steeliest and singer’s new album.

.

Gwyneth Moreland – Slaughterhouse Gulch
Perfect blend of authentic, classic country that feels as genuine as it does timeless.

.

Menace Beach – Come On Give Up
Fuzzily insistent indie rock.

.

Elijah Ocean – Bring It All In
Particularly fine example of classic backwoods, porch-rocking folk.

.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Heat
Eastern tinged, gritty psychedelia.

.

The Wave Pictures – Pea Green Boat
Dr Feelgood style blues riffs melded with typically quirky and literate vocals.

.

Eaves – As Old As The Grave
Rich, tender, melancholia from new singer-songwriter.

.

Elliott Brood – Nothing Left
Rollicking, infectious Americana cut through with bluegrass, folk-rock and a definite glam-rock flavour.

.

Daddy Issues – Ugly When I Cry
Wonderful slab of downbeat grungy pop that drips with acerbic irony and a healthy dose of cynicism.

.

The Don Darlings – If You Can’t Be Good
Masterpiece of southern gothic Americana

.

Parkay Quarts – Uncast Shadow Of A Southern Myth
Townes Van Zandt, Warren Zevon, and Dylan are evident points of departure this lonesome tale about “two men tragically colliding in the deep south“.

.

Viet Cong – Continental Shelf
Gloomy, brooding, ghostly, dissonant post-punk.

.

Diarrhoea Planet – Bamboo Curtain
Catchy old-school style punk.

.

Saint Agnes – Where The Lightning Strikes
Blues stomping, dirty rock n roll number with psychedelic organs, screaming guitars and haunting harmonica.

.

Justin Townes Earle – Dreams (Fleetwood Mac cover)
Classic take on a classic track.

.

Kyle Adem – I Go On
Haunting, satirical autobiography of loss and the person one becomes in solitude, sung with convincing desperation.

.

Curtin – Big Blue Crown
Hazy track that creates a slow-burning and hypnotic soundscape.

.

To finish we have new tracks from brilliant psych-rockers Pontiak, the burrowing, ominous Underneath Us Like A Snake, and Soft Fangs stunningly gorgeous and woozy Dog Park.

Videos of the Day

Five top notch videos today come from Dr. Dog and their reappropriated footage to accompany the excellent Broken Heart, and similarly from Lorelle Meets The Obsolete we have a suitably antiquated experimental video for the superb psych-rock of What’s Holding You?.

From Basia Bulat, a stunning live performance of It Can’t Be You, and by contrast from Diarrhea Planet, a spring breakers inspired film for Separations from much heralded new album I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Lastly we have TV Ghost’s tripped out video for their taut, grinding new single Siren.

New Tunes On Monday

A new week, some new tunes to soften the blow.

We have a taste (if that’s the right word) from Diarrhea Planet’s new album I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams in the shape of the sleazy, roiling Babyhead. By way of contrast we have Frankie Rose’s new track Sorrow from her scheduled new long player Herein Wild, a deceptively simple and sweetly melancholic pop track that is hard to resist.

We have a second track from surf loving, garage popsters La Vega and their track Jackie from new album Wave, and (by way of contrast) we have Bambara’s snarling, fragmented, aural desolation in the shape of Hawk Bones from their Dreamviolence album.

We have the gorgeous, rural folk-pop of The Great American Canyon Band’s Lost At Sea from their four-track EP of the same name (watch the excellent video here), and lastly Mrs M’s faves The Keston Cobblers’ Club have a new single of quintessentially English pastoral folk, A Scene Of Plenty is a pure and simple delight.

Wednesday Means Six Of The Best!

Time for a round up of six more excellent bands and their tunes that have been spinning regularly on the MM virtual turntable.

First out of the blocks are Manchester’s Temple Songs, a 4 piece outfit smashing out brilliantly crafted psychedelic pop tunes – the kind of tracks that you might stumble across on a carefully selected LA Nuggets compilation and wonder how it is of the now. Blending sounds of The Beatles and The Stooges with the likes of Pavement and Deerhunter; their single Passed Caring, backed with Dinosaur Alley is due to be released digitally and on 7″ Vinyl on the 4th July.

.

Bailout is the new EP from MM faves Little Legend, and paints a picture of the lowly dirtbag with all the embedded grit and garage-rock small town America has to offer. The title track is even based on a time frontman Brandy Tudor was bailed out of jail in Laramie, WY by a girlfriend, though he might have embellished it a little bit…

.

We previously posted about Detroit Rebellion’s debut EP Fork In The Road, the follow up is more uncompromising, gritty dirt-blues of the very best kind. Some of the Time (Some Other Time) comes from The Detroit Rebellion of ’67 EP and is another slice of classic old-school riffing, distortion and tribal percussion.

.

Fourth up is Daughn Gibson and a track from his new album Me Moan, which is already picking up plenty of accolades and good press. Our personal favourite from the record (so far) will also be the first proper single from it – Kissin On The Blacktop, which is a slice of freak’s rockabilly underpinned by Gibson’s ominously drawled baritone. Marvellous stuff.

.

Diarrhea Planet might, quite literally, have a shit name, but fortunately the music is far from fecal. Kids is the latest track to get an airing from their imminent second long-player, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. It is their most considered and melodic offering yet.

.

Lastly, Toronto’s punk/hardcore hybrid METZ are the latest contributors to the free Adult Swim Singles Series with the pulverising Can’t Understand.
