something-else-a-tribute-to-the-kinks

There is a rather tasty Kinks Tribute album being given away as the free cover disk with the latest issue of Mojo.

It contains 14 tracks and includes the likes of Gaz Coombes, Nada Surf, Chuck Prophet, Jacco Gardner, Wreckless Eric, Mick Harvey and American Wrestlers amongst others.

Have a listen to French duo Les Liminanas’ take on Two Sisters also featuring Anton Newcombe and Ty Segall’s version of perhaps the band’s greatest composition, Waterloo Sunset, and retains faithful to the original whilst imbuing it with a whole new gnarly charm.

 

 

 

Another From Ty Segall

The ballad Orange Color Queen announced Ty Segall’s upcoming self-titled album, but the second track to be shared  is a far more typical example of his raw, primal guitar riffage.

Break A Guitar is a noisy, crunchy slice of distorted garage rock shot through with a flavour of 70s glam rock arrogance.

Listen below.

 

best of the weekHere are eight new songs to end the week, including two from the mighty Ty Segall – a track from his forthcoming self-titled album and a cover of a Harry Nilsson track that was released as a split seven inch with Loch Lomond.

We also have an appropriately apocalyptic track (in every sense) from POND, a re-worked version of an album track from Fear Of Men and new songs from Julie Bryne, Gang, and The Trouble With Templeton. Finally another cover for you with Braid’s take on Alvvays’ Next Of Kin.

As always. Enjoy.

  1. Ty Segall – Orange Color Queen
  2. Ty Segall – Gotta Get Up  (Harry Nilsson cover)
  3. POND – 30000 Megatons
  4. Julie Byrne – Natural Blue
  5. Fear Of Men – Change Me
  6. The Trouble With Templeton – Vernon
  7. Braid – Next Of Kin  (Alvvays Cover)

Mad Mackerel's Best of October 2012.

Our monthy round up of the best new tunes we’ve posted and a few brand new ones too. More than 30 tunes to set you up for the weekend. Enjoy.

Wooden Wand – Southern Colorado Song
Another brilliant example of our favourite, prolific troubadour’s storytelling prowess.

a

Download The Growl – With The Sharp End Of A Trowel mp3 (from Cleaver Lever EP)
Soaked in the authentic primal blues of the swamps with a twang of rockabilly, a haze of psychedelia and, at its heart, the pulsating, bloody roar of rock’n’roll.

The Shamefaced Sparrows – Ride That Seastorm
Like the Velvets fronted by Dick Dale, or the Beach Boys cage fighting with the Kinks these are crackling with surf-pop vintage – think cruising rain-slicked neon streets in 50s LA!

a

Download Angel Snow – Lie Awake mp3 (from Angel Snow)
Haunting, chilling vocals paired with melancholy lyrics create a gorgeous scenery for a listener’s travels.

Matthew Friedberger – Expectant Fathers – In for a Surprise VII. As if in the Car with the Kids (from Matricidal Sons Of Bitches)
Inspired by the films of Poverty Row and his current city of residence, Paris – it makes for a potent combination.

a

Download Jenee Halstead – Rodeo Of Sadness mp3 (from Raised By Wolves)
Another fine example of her spooky, sparse approach that comes across as sounding like a slightly malevolent hybrid of Dolly Parton and PJ Harvey.

Download Skipping Girl Vinegar – You Can mp3 (from Keep Calm, Carry The Monkey)
More heartwarming hobo-pop, full of lyrical twists and sonic layers.

Download Kings Of Lowertown – Down Tobacco Road mp3 (from Kings of Lowertown EP)
Excellent primal blues chug.

Download King Of Spain – Green Eyes mp3 (from All I Did Was Tell Was Tell Them The Truth And They Thought It Was Hell)
Spacious indie rock with jaunty pop hooks.

Bromheads – Holding The Gun
Fizzes over with the energy of a can of Irn-Bru exploding full in your face. It is sharp and pithy, and fast and furious, and machetes its way into your brain like an earworm with a mouthful of razors.

a

Wintersleep – Martyr
Another prime example of their shimmering, pulsating indie rock.

a

MMOSS – Another Dream
Jangly organs, flutes and driving drums, unexpected arrangements, classic recording sounds and psychy harmonies.

a

Algernon Doll – Spiral Sounds
Lavish, intense and splendid, but underpinned with a creeping sense of anxiety and discontent.

a

Download Jason Lytle – Somewhere There’s A Someone mp3 (from Dept. Of Disappearance)
A track of wonderfully weary heartbreak and ennui from erstwhile Grandaddy frontman’s new album

Rural Ghosts – Eyes (from Eyes Single)
A little rawer, a little more powerful, but this is still Americana that overflows with haunting beauty.

a

Woollen Kits – Susannah (from Four Girls)
sweet, fuzzed-up pysch-garage.

a

Download Ending People – Beat Of My Heart mp3 (from Fill Your Lungs)
Catchy, hypnotic indie rock showcases new wave inspired sinewy guitar lines.

Hailer – Spooky Clams (from Another Way)
Calls to mind The Fall in its relentless rhythm, while the reverb swirls and drifts around the (frankly clearer) vocals.

a

Download Ty Segall – Femme Fatale mp3 (from The Velvet Underground & Nico by Castle Face and Friends)
Maniacal take on Velvet Underground classic.

Download The Luyas – Your Name’s Mostly Water mp3 (from Animator)
Hypnotically brilliant track from latest album.

Download Fidlar featuring Kate Nash – AWWWKWAARRRDDD mp3 (from Fidlar)
Bizarre combo works a treat. Punk rock!

Download Outer Minds – Those Machines mp3 (from Behind The Mirror)
One hundred and fifty seconds of belligerence escaping with venomous joy from your speakers.

Download Deathbarrel – Merciless Winds mp3 (from Merciless Winds)
The sound of wrenches and motor oil, of Saturday night beers and truckstops, of longing and loss, of late evenings and aching muscles, of endless roads and shore leave, of the dreams of freedom that all and any working man feels deep in his soul.

Download Dr. Dog – Black Or Red mp3 (from Shame, Shame Deluxe Edition)
Scrappy yet hook-packed rock emboldened by a bare-bones aesthetic.

Download Lonesome Moses – Fisting With A Shark mp3 (from Lonesome Moses EP)
Outlaw country that celebrates unassuming heroes and heroines trying to navigate a world of booze, venereal disease, and Octoloans…

Download Dead Stars – Fractured mp3 (from Fractured) Removed at artist’s request.
Races along in a tumble of reverb, gruff vocals and a nagging guitar line that also puts us in mind of Silversun Pickups Lazy Eye.

Juiceboxxx – Expressway To The Darkness
American heart of darkness anthem, like Suicide reinvented for the 21st century.

a

Download Dolfish – There Must Be Something Wrong With These Shoes mp3 (from I’d Rather Disappear Than Stay The Same)
More warped promise from the skewed and idiosyncratic world of offbeat folk troubadour.

And to finish off we have a taste of Teen Mom’s effervescent fuzzed up pop from forthcoming EP Mean Tom (pre-order here), another stunning cover from Marissa Nadler – this time Daniel Johnston’s Devil Town and a new non-album track from psych-blues rockers The Buffalo Killers, Baptized is a down-and-dirty rocker that somehow melds heavy psych with gospel! Lastly we have the welcome return of Sleeping Bag’s bedroom indie-pop, addictively deadpan if you will, Walk Home comes from new limited edition EP Women Of Your Life (pre-order here).

Download Teen Mom – I Wanna Go Out mp3 (from Mean Tom EP)

Download Sleeping Bag – Walk Home mp3 (from Women Of Your Life)

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.
