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!

Qozy Offer Up Bugs Life

Surprise surprise! There’s another band from San Francisco area that we need to keep our eyes on: Qozy. At the moment it’s a one-man project, but the sound’s laying the groundwork for something special; it’s sort of like a rocking slow-core band, wherein you can hear the driving nature and immediacy, only the tune has a tendency to open up and offer itself to you. Those guitar lines almost have this heavy drone too, though the recording keeps that sort of underwater intimacy, all whilst detailing the brevity of a bug’s life and how a bug should be grateful as “being a bug is enough.” A sense of absurdity coiled up in a droning bit of bedroom indie rock. Dig in.

Last Week’s Jams (6.19 – 6.23)

It was a pretty busy week around these parts, though on a personal level, the next two weeks are going to be a bit of a shit show. So, it was good to settle into that ride with some great new jams. New music from Colored Lights and Lola Tried got me super excited, so we’re kicking off last week’s jams right there. B. Gray shot some great photos of Love and Rockets, which you can scroll back into and find, thus their inclusion. RayRay ran a review of the latest from Elder Jack Ward, so you can get your soul fix in. I probably played it safe and close to home with new songs from Snooper, Swansea Sound and Film School, among a bunch of others. Unfortunately, the new Lewsberg tunes are streaming yet, so those aren’t here, but go back and listen, please!

Qozy Share Pieces, Release Sleep Over EP

Qozy released the Sleep Over EP last week, and it took me a minute to catch on, but as I did, I reckoned there were a handful of folks would be like-minded. Of the handful of tracks on the EP, “Pieces” is one that I keep gravitating towards, particularly as it keeps providing this warped vision that seems to kind of hang on the edges of my own sanity. You’ll hear the song warble a bit, as if the tape was deteriorating and creating this fade in and out. Sitting carefully in the center are the vocals, with lyrics written by Qozy’s dceased friend; it adds a harrowing detail to an already subdued vibe, letting you fully immerse yourself in the tune. The Sleep Over EP is now available, so jump right on in!
