Show Preview: Dub Thompson + Ought @ Holy Mountain (7/3)

dubIn a bone-headed move that I accept full responsibility for, I completely slept on the Dub Thompson album, 9 Songs. I’ve since had it on a steady rotation after it’s release; there’s elements of noise, psychedelic hints and just weirdo pop, so of course I’m obsessing.  The band brings their show into town this Thursday night, and you’ve all got July 4th off, so you’ve got no excuse to stay out late and enjoy the music over at Holy Mountain.  Also, you’ll get to see Montreal’s Ought, who received the arbitrary “Best New Music” tag from P4k, if that matters to you.  Their angular post-rock seems like it’s built for a pulsating live show of rhythm and grooves.  You can buy yourself $10 tickets HERE.  Hope to see you guys out so we can celebrate freedom together at midnight.



Two New Releases from Trouble In Mind: Soft Walls & Ultimate Painting

LP.jkt.templateIt’s been a great year for releases from Trouble In Mind Records, with my favorite being the Greg Ashley LP, but they’ve also got two new releases you need to keep your eyes on in the near future.  The first is from Soft Walls (album art to the left); it’s the project of UK-based Dan Reeves, and it sounds an awful like combining Fujiya and Miyagi with your favorite psychedelic band.  The debut of the project is called No Time, and it’s out on July 29th.  The other act, Ultimate Painting, is  hugely popular, if you’re going of the projects of those involved (members of Mazes and Veronica Falls).  Their self-titled debut comes out on October 28th, and I’ve been streaming the new single for the last few days.  Take a listen to these two great tracks, and look for the records soon.
