Song Premiere: Jet Trash – “Baby C’mon” from Burger Records imprint

Jet Trash

Jet Trash took their name from a line in a Tom Waits song though they have very little in common with him sonically. The San Francisco quartet have arrived with a gleefully relentless rush of a song that should kick off every single one of your summer road trip mixes.
With “Baby C’mon,” Jet Trash pays homage to their garage rock forebears (and contemporaries), but they imbue the track …

Prinzhorn Dance School economize on their new LP

Posted June 17, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 693 views]

No strangers to economy, Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn (aka Prinzhorn Dance School) have to date made a name for themselves fashioning slinky, minimalist, angular post-punk as a duo.

Posted June 15, 2015 by | 2 Comments | 1,030 views]

Like Mad Max, Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa are survivors of the post blogcaplypse. But instead of brutal desert, their landscape is an Urban Outfitters hipster Jello mold the size of an Ikea. Their wasteland is a miasma of endlessly boring bands with dream poppy Izod shirts, ironic facial hair (which I didn’t even know was possible) and robo-playing youtube channels.
Quickly following up last year’s super solid Dunes album with a brand new album Music for …
