Hans Pucket are a New Zealand indie-rock trio of Callum Devlin, Oliver Devlin and Jonathan Nott. This April they released their debut album Eczema and today we are sharing one of its standout cuts, “Straight To My Heart.”

The band more or less keeps a simple garage rock approach with the track that charms you in a very easy-going manner but it works in some interesting psych-rock bits towards the end that remind you a bit of some of the earlier days Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Find “Straight To My Heart” available to stream below and the whole album is streaming in full at their Bandcamp.

Baltimore’s Wye Oak, who we last saw performing with an orchestra, released their sixth studio album, The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs via Merge Records earlier this year. In support of the album, the duo of Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner toured with a third member for the first time: Will Hackney on bass. The tour brought them to Brooklyn Steel on May 15th. Support came from Palm and Torres, who announced that the show would potentially be her last in New York City for rest of the year.

Two days into Governors Ball 2018 and we were only hit with a brief bit of rain during the tail end of Day 2 during The Gaslight Anthem’s headlining performance. Considering how dour the original forecast was, this was a huge surprise and good news for the festival that was so long overdue.

N.E.R.D

We began the day with British rockers The Struts who I have heard so many good things about from fellow photographers. Their style of rock and roll takes from many of the classics but it made for a fun midday set for sure, one that I hope to catch whenever they return back here for a show of their own. I mellowed out a bit following their set with some of the alt-country from the super-talented Margo Price who sounded delightful. From there it was the artrock of Dirty Projectors who sported a very different lineup from their appearance at Governors Ball 2013, somehow the last time I saw them.

The Gaslight Anthem

Just like how Day 1 of Governors Ball 2018 began in epic fashion with an in your face finale by Slaves, Jay Electronica started of Day 2 with an equally thrilling bang. Beginning his set he found that he didn’t like how far away he was from the crowd and soon jumped into the front row, performing a few tracks there to the astonishing delight of all those in the front rows. Eventually he went even deeper into the crowd, before returning to the stage and inviting a good portion of those in the front row up there with him. This isn’t the sort of thing you normally see at a major festival, which made me applaud the hell out of Jay Electronica. Now, if we could only get that damn album already….

Yet another Governors Ball is in the books. Naturally, rain threatened to dampen the weekend but the ever-shifting forecast kept changing and thankfully, aside from a few brief late-night showers, the weather held out.

Slaves

I began my entire weekend and Day 1 by catching the tail end of British punk rockers Slaves’ set, who finished off the set and hopped the railing and ran off well past their crowd to go grab a bottle of water at the nearest food stand, all which guitarist Laurie Vincent was bleeding after cutting his hand. That was quite a way to start off not only the day but the entire festival. I kept the good vibes going strong following their performance with a set from the always trippy psych-rock proggers Pond, who has only gotten better and more confident every time that I’ve seen them perform.

Singer-songwriter Rayland Baxteris back, and his brand new album Wide Awake (which is produced by Butch Walker) comes out on July 13th on ATO Records.

Needless to say there is great buzz around this album after Baxter’s incredible 2015 sophomore record Imaginary Man. To celebrate the announcement, Spotify put together a little shindig at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on May 14 and Rayland and his incredible band turned up to give his loyal fanbase a beautiful 70-minute set of brand new songs from the record, as well as some old favorites.

Find shots taken from this intimate performance posted in the gallery below.

Alice Glass had a huge impact on my formative music tastes. I remember the first time I heard Crystal Castles: I was packed into the back of my friend’s Oldsmobile with six other people on our way to a Decemberists show. “Crimewave” was on the road trip’s playlist, and it was instantly something that stood out to all of us. Our first mythic CC show was in 2011, and that night Alice was performing despite having a broken ankle. Her dedication to her live performances was the stuff of legends, and she certainly delivered. We were entering an age where social media was being grafted to our personal lives, and for a lot of us, Alice was the voice of the ghost in the machine screaming back out at us.
