I’m an admitted fan of Rose Melberg and her work, so when we heard about a new project, Knife Pleats, I was really excited to hear what it had to offer. As expected, it’s every bit as glorious as we thought, and the full length is now available to pick up on your own. If you’re looking for something that’s just slightly hazy on the sound, but adheres to the delightful side of indiepop, then I think you’re going to want to pick up Hat Bark Beach. It’s available in the US via Lost Sound Tapes and Jigsaw Records.
I think any fan of great indie rock the last several years has to agree that no matter what Rose Melberg touches, it’s going to be magic…in some way or another. The last project we had from her was Imaginary Pants, but now she’s got a new outfit up and running, Knife Pleats. And yes, as always, Melberg and her pals fulfill the promise, creating hook filled tunes that make you feel young…and ultimately smile. The foursome will release Hat Bark Beach on September 29th via Lost Sound Tapes…with the CD version coming out later via Jigsaw…both reliable options for great tunes.

I’m growing a wee bit weary of the same old thing. It’s all atmospherics and bedroom production takes, but I really just want an energetic tune that will get under your skin. This tune from the new Craig Salt Peters does just that; it gives you a quick cutting pop song that’s wearing just a shade of grit. It’s one of the many great tracks on the band’s new album, Songs From Hungry Ghosts. The entire album is filled with songs that are immediately accessible and undeniably catchy. If you’re into it, you can order it from Lost Sound Tapes, and I suggest you do![audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Craig_Salt_Peters-Seeing_You.mp3]

I wanted to bringing you something special on a Friday, something I thought you could really sink your teeth into before you hit the weekend. This little jam comes from Rose Melberg and her new project Imaginary Pants. The duo has a collection of demos, but they sounds pretty incredible if you ask me. I like the opening jam, and I can see how the sound fits into the modern music industry, with vocal harmonies and a little bit of twang. They’re going to toss out this wonderful collection on Lost Sound Tapes sometime in the near future, so keep a look out. You can grab all the demos HERE.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Imaginary-Pants-Imaginary-Pants-01-Cave-to-Cave.mp3]
