Last Week’s Jams, Today (5.16 – 5.20)

It’s that time of the week friends, where you get to revisit all the stuff we covered last week, mostly because we’re too lazy to do it on a Friday. We had a lot of super rad stuff, with fresh tunes from the likes of Living Hour, Interior Geometry and Lost Film. Plus, with Liars reissue treatment, I get a chance to post an old school Liars jam, so I was stoked there. Plus, our friend Nick Rad documented his fun at the Turnstile show, so I included a jam in here too, because why the heck not?! Happy Monday!

Show Review: Turnstile @ Stubb’s (5/6)

We have some bonus coverage for you today. Friend and photographer, Nick Radcliffe, ventured out to catch Turnstile when they came through Austin to play at Stubb’s BBQ.

A quick excerpt: “For those of you that don’t know, Turnstile shows do not gradually escalate. You’re immediately thrown into a whirlwind of flesh, sweat, beer, and TLC (Turnstile Love Connection for the uninitiated). That said, the hardcore scene is known for its sense of community. Everyone is there for a good time and look out for one another. No matter the intensity someone’s got your back, or side, or whichever side happens to be thrown into the pit. I’ll give Turnstile some credit for this set though, they did try to ease us in.”

Lionlimb Get Jazzy With Their Lo-Fi

unnamedLionlimb consists of Stewart Bronaugh and Joshua Jaeger, whom you may be familiar to you as parts of Angel Olsen’s backing band from her most recent tour. If they aren’t already familiar to you, in about three and a half minutes that will change. “Turnstile,” the single below, which will be released as a 7″ from Bayonet Records on September 18th, gives you a different spin on lo-fi with the incorporation of jazz elements to the track. On first listen, I didn’t really know what to make of the song, but now I can’t stop spinning the tune. The way the drums are heavy on the cymbal sound and the crisp piano sound provide the jazz sound while the heavily distorted guitar riffs pop in and out of the low key vocals. It’s a solid track, one which you can preorder here, if you do the iTunes thing.
