Last Week’s Jams (6.24 – 6.28)

For some reason, I felt like last week was kind of a slow-burn, but then when putting all the tracks we mentioned together, was stoked to see we had a solid amount for you to enjoy today. Personally, getting to celebrate new music from Feeling Figures and Being Dead feels like the world gets a win. But, there were also some great LP releases from the likes of Laughing and My Best Unbeaten Brother, amongst others. Totally excited to hear news of another endeavor from Mexico’s Mint Field, not to mention we got another sneak peek at what’s coming from the next Bad Moves LP, which of course has us stoked. Stream below!

Last Week’s Jams (6.3 – 6.7)

Pretty heavy week we had over on the ATH here. The Bay Area and Austin area had some great tunes to offer us, such as new stuff from Sad Eyed Beatniks and Holy Wire, or perhaps Swiftumz and Letting Up Despite Great Faults. We also got to preview some great shows like Adrianne Lenker and The Umbrellas (that was a blast btw!). Plus, Cursive return after a few years off, so of course the site’s emo contingent was keeping you up to date there. Then there were Nathan faves like Icarus Phoenix, Quivers and Azure Blue, all of whom offered us up new tunes. Tons to enjoy below.

Last Week’s Jams (5.20 – 5.24)

Sorry for being absent, but gotta take a day off when the government allows. Looking back at last week, we covered a ton of stuff, and I couldn’t even post it all, as there’s a few tracks missing from DSPs like the new Dennis Callaci/Heimito Kunst collaboration. But, my new flavor of the year, My Best Unbeaten Brother returned with a new tune, as did Oh Boland, so all sorts of really sweet pop made its way in here. Stoked to see there’s another Nightshift album coming out from Trouble In Mind later this year, thus you’ll hear that early in the mix. Somehow ended up with several great tunes stretching over 5 minutes, so if you’ve got time, be sure to not skip ahead! Bunch of tunes from your favorite ADHD curator! Also, if you’re on the site, be sure to check our friend Michael Maly’s photos from the recent Idles set here in town!

My Best Unbeaten Brother Share Extraordinary Times

When My Best Unbeaten Brother popped onto my radar back in February, I knew I liked it, but was certainly interested to see where the band would go as they moved forward. Well, they’ve quickly become one of my favorite new acts, on the backs of another rad single playing below. It opens in what I kind of consider a come-hither finger wag; the softly spoken lyrical style with a bending guitar line beckons you into the track. Then backing vocals build texture just as the drums snap into their role. Suddenly, the guitars take on a different, distorted tone, almost swinging from side to side. And as if you were getting used that, one of the Ben’s ramps up his vocal delivery, frantically delivering line after line as it was the last thing he might ever say. Everything is catchy and crunchy, and there’s even a bit of Morrissey slander. Earnest pop rock of the best should have everyone in love with this lot. Pessimistic Pizza will be out on June 28th via Audio Antihero.

Last Week’s Jams (5.6 – 5.10)

What a wild and crazy week that was. Tons of music, and tons of great albums. We suggested you listen to the latest LPs from Lunchbox, Amy O, Gregor and Stephen’s Shore, among others…so go back and revisit those records if you’re into full-length listens. But, if not, some of our favorite acts popped up after a bit of an absence; there was new stuff from both Quivers and Emma Russack, so the Aussie contingent was representing with new music. This My Best Unbeaten Brother track that opens up the playlist is a ripper, but don’t you dare skip beyond new Yea-Ming or Cats of Transnistria. Just a bunch of great jams for you to enjoy, so just get right to it!

My Best Unbeaten Brother Announce Mini Album

Back in January we were very excited to share new music from My Best Unbeaten Brother, which was a new project from Adam and Ben Parker. Today, the band announce their debut mini-album, Pessimistic Pizza (which I think means it has pineapple on it). Ben’s vocal delivery has a very distinctive British feel to it, sharp and pointed, though seemingly spoken more than sung in this presentation. Behind him, the band are furiously ripping up and down through the speakers, distorting riffs that are catchy and dangerous…all the while the cymbal work seems like its purposefully going off the rails. Their debut Pessimistic Pizza will be out June 28th via Audio Antihero. Please don’t put pineapple on pizza.

Last Week’s Jams (1.2 – 1.5)

We swept back into the New Year with a bunch of tunes last week, though technically we were only working 4 days, so not knee deep in jams as we expect to be here for the next few months. New music from David Nance and Ducks Ltd ruled, but there were some left-field gems lurking like My Best Unbeaten Brother and Camille Benatre, to name a few. I keep coming back to the Seasonal Falls and Red Sleeping Beauty tunes too. Not a bunch, but a damn fine collection of rock n’ roll, even including Austin’s Thanks Light. Stream some hits below.

New Tune from My Best Unbeaten Brother

I’m pretty picky when it comes to long musical intros on rock songs; I’m teacher of 13 year olds, so a majority of my time is a rush. But, when I pressed play on the newest single from UK outfit My Best Unbeaten Brother I just felt like this was the track for me today. Something in the song is growling at you instantly; the guitar lines have this edge to them that immediately has you on edge…the anticipation builds for that whole first minute. Then you’ve the seemingly spoken vocal delivery that works through the track as the guitars stab and poke through your speakers; it’s this riotous bit of ramshackle rock n’ roll that’s perfectly balanced to rip through your speakers. We expect a debut LP from the band later this year via Audio Antihero.
