anyways, onto the viva playlist for this week. i kinda put it together last minute so it's a little random for me.
My band, Open Ocean, just finished recording a new song. My good friends Lovefingers and Doug Lee produced it and it's pretty RAD. i'm so happy with it. you'll find that stuck in between a little Horace Andy and Galaxie 500. also duly noted is the Creepers version of Baby's On Fire. a sold cover in my opinion. close to the original.
ok next up we've got a song from Ariel Pink's new album Before Today. I swear every song on this album reminds me of a different band or song. Little Wig reminds me of Bowie. which is never a bad thing. i like the album a lot. you should check it out.
i first heard of Disappears when my friends drove to chicago to check them out. finally got their album and i'm pretty into it. they're playing Union Pool on June 19th and i'm stoked to check them out. Alongside them i smashed in some Sebadoh (always a personal favorite) and Descendants (fuck yeah!) Ahhhhh stoked for a good punk show.
Light Asylum has been getting a bunch of hype lately. I really love their live set. it's really powerful. Shannon....damn girl. you can sing. i've been blown away since !!! days. welcome back industrial. Tones on Tail and Silver Apples!! booya. can never go wrong. lastly a new track by my homies Holy Ghost!. so stoked to see these guys finally perform after all these years. they feel like my lil bros all grown up. first shows with LCD soundsystem? not so bad.
