The last time I covered the work of Tel Aviv’s Vaadat Charigm, the band had more of a bend towards psychedelia. But, as they grow, they’ve crafted this sound that adheres to their influences while still pushing forward in a heavier sonic direction. This new single has a sound akin to various heavy-hitters out there, with a haunting vocal tone that’s wrapped in a hazy swirl of guitars and atmospheric distortion. It’s a darkened touch on their own sound; it should make listening to their new effort, Sinking as a Stone, quite a journey. Look for the album via Burger Records on May 5th.

Occasionally, when wading through the murky depths of recently released on Bandcamp, you find something worth sharing. Then, sometimes you have the misfortune of discovering that sweet garage rock single you just found actually came out a few months ago, but then you realize you don’t care and you’re gonna post it anyways. And THEN, you’re diving in to research about the band only to realize they’re apart of the Burger Records line up and have just released another single and have an upcoming LP for you to talk about. So meet Froth, a lo-fi four piece outfit from L.A. who will wow you with their jangly guitars and gritty rock and roll. The track below, “Postcard Radio” is off their forthcoming record, Bleak, which is out May 5th.
One of my favorite little genres of the past was the quieted pop music that got dubbed slowcore. I realize a lot of music has been created of that ilk for some time, but I’ve recently taken a liking to Sara Bethe Nelson. There’s that slow moving emotional pull to this track, with Nelson’s sultry swoon bringing in more melancholy (at least in tone). She’s readying her debut album, Fast-Moving Clouds, which is going to really wow a lot of folks out there, so it’s necessary for you slow music fans to add her to your list. Look for the LP on March 10th via Burger Records.
If I told you Cotillon was on Burger Records and you hadn’t heard the band, you’d likely think the group would offer something in the vein of garage rock. But, with this album, the label is continuing its efforts to branch out into new territory, having this latest single offer little more than just a tinkling piano and some vocals. It’s a short little ballad, yet it’s one that continues to push my excitement for the self-titled effort from the one-man project (January 26th). Think gentle and pretty, yet far from mundane.
Again, the end of the year brings to your attention a lot of great hits, and I was lucky to catch this on the ever changing line-up that is Burger Records. Corners are this sort of synth-glam-post-punk phenomenon coming out of that LA place, and what they’re creating is really something. There’s a bit of hipness to it, but there’s also this vibe that they could really give a fuck…making for a great listen. Their LP Maxed Out on Distractions is out now courtesy of the above mentioned folks, as well as Lolipop Records. The jam below is the one I keep gravitating towards the mostest.
Tuesday’s always bring new music to our inbox, and one the songs I immediately latched onto was this tune from Michael Rault. There’s two tracks below for you to jam to, both offering a nice bit of subdued glamour pop. You can hear hints of Ty Segall inspired songwriting in what Rault and his band have completed, though it’s spun in an entirely different direction, focusing more on the perfect arrangement of pop structures. This single is a release sponsored by Burger Records in anticipation of a full length to come your way in 2015.
When you get an email about a new act on Burger Records, you generally know what to expect from the label…that is until you hear the work of Cotillon. It’s this dreamy little bit of bedroom pop, akin to the work of early Captured Tracks acts. The LA act worked with JR from Girls, so you can count on the production quality to be successful when the band release their full album. Personally, I love the way the song slowly fades out over about a minute, growing softer and softer until you can no longer hear it. Look for the group’s self-titled album to come out on January 26th.
I’ve got some tunes from the Memories; I like the band well enough, I just feel like they could do a bit more. But, it looks like that time has finally come, as the band are readying a new album that’s been worked over by Sonny Smith, who I trust above many others. There’s already a subtle R&B production to the tune, while the band maintains their approach to brevity in their songwriting; it sort of reminds me of Girls early on…you know, when that band meant something. Look for the band’s new LP Hot Afternoon next month from Burger Records.
