Andrew Rinehart

Andrew Rinehart is the moniker of Louisville musician Andrew Sellers. He recently released part II of an album called Everything (Parts I, II, and III) which is split into three different EPs. Over the course of these three EPs, he goes from folk, to rock, and then a combination of the two.

On Part II single “You Can’t Break My Heart (Pretty People Make Graves),” Rinehart shows a great deal of musical diversity on a track that plays with many genres of rock, showcasing moments that reminded me of everyone from Lou Reed to old school Modest Mouse.

Paperhaus – Cairo

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Paperhaus

Over the past month Washington D.C. band Paperhaus have been on the road sharing their tunes with fans all over the country. They also took the time to release a new single called “Cairo.”

It’s a scorching piece of lively guitar rock that is smart and assured. It knows where its going and doesn’t beat around the bush. If you’re in any of the cities that they still have yet to come to, you’d be smart to check these guys out live.

Find their tour dates posted below, along with a stream of “Cairo.”

Band To Watch: Eyelid Kid

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

EyelidKid

Not much else is known about new mysterious band Eyelid Kid, other than the fact that they are a indeed a band featuring more than one members, and that they are located in Southern California. They have shared nothing about themselves other than this following description that came in a press release:

A pair of lovers trapped in the comfort of intimacy try to escape the undertow of all possibilities and realities. The ultimate support, the ultimate hindrance. Love and pain, reward and sacrifice, it’s all in the eye of the beholder. An unfiltered look at the dichotomy that is the human condition; the peace and tranquility, as well as the turmoil and tension, Eyelid Kid covers the spectrum with the honest realization that the only meaning in life is that of which you assign.

“Time Travel” was the first song shared, dropped mysteriously during the spring. It caught the attention of listeners immediately, and with just one listen to the impressive offering, you understand why. As far as debut songs come, they are very rarely as polished and developed as “Time Travel.” It’s a smooth journey, from the funky bassline, to the jazzy vocals, and oh, a saxophone.

Then there’s follow-up cut “Sleeps Well On Knives,” which continues to showcase their ability to lock into a memorable groove that is smooth as all hell. It sounds like its coming from an established artist who has been at it from years, not from a new group who we know nothing about.

That’s the magical thing about Eyelid Kid, we know nothing about them, except everything that we need to know: they make incredible tunes. The rest will follow.

Wampire – Wizard Staff

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Wampire

On October 7 Portland natives Wampire will release new album Bazaar on Polyvinyl Records. The album is the first taste of the new version of band, who have grown from a duo to a quintet.

After many months spent on tour, founding members and primary songwriters Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps immediately went to the making of a new album trying to “capitalize on the creative energy that had been steadily amassing during their days, weeks, and months on the road.”

Here’s how Phipps describes the time:

I holed up in a tiny room within a friend’s warehouse and began knocking out as many different songs as I could. I tried not to look back, just wanting to explore everything I could possibly create. I started to feel like I was becoming a Kafka-esque insomniac musical novelist at one point.

The band have shown tremendous growth in the record’s first single “Wizard Staff.” It’s an impressive return for the band who add new elements to their sound, including some jazzy saxophone bits in what could be most easily described as a dreamy Ariel Pink meets Mac DeMarco sound.

Stream “Wizard Staff” below.

Action Bronson – Easy Rider

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Action Bronson

Queens rapper Action Bronson will return with his new album Mr. Wonderful this fall. If the rest of the album is as ridiculously awesome as first single “Easy Rider,” then we may be looking at one of the best rap albums of the year.

“Easy Rider” grooves off a crisp psychedelic-influenced sample of a 1974 song called “Adımız Miskindir Bizim” from Turkish artist Mazhar Ve Fuat. Bronson delivers a memorable flow that calls to mind a bit of Ghostface. It’s produced by Party Supplies, who is certainly earning his pay on this song, which is just fire.

Watch the equally awesome music video for “Easy Rider,” which naturally, is an ode to Easy Rider.

Diarrhea Planet – Spooners

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Diarrhea Planet

Diarrhea Planet are one of the best rock and roll live shows you can see right now. Seriously, if you haven’t seen them live, you’re missing out. They’re loud, full of energy, and let it all hang out. See photos of their performance at Governors Ball this year right here.

This firey spirit lives on in “Spooners”, a new song that the band released as a part of the 2014 Adult Swim Singles Series. It’s a total guitar overload, with plenty of riffage and smart hooks that will melt your face. These guys just do rock music all kinds of right.

Download “Spooners” below.

Artist To Watch: Ryn Weaver

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Ryn Weaver

Ryn Weaver sent the internet into a frenzy with the release of her debut single “OctaHate.” While its a good pop song (and features production from a team that includes Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit, Cashmere Cat, and BenZel), it’s “Promises”, the title track of her debut EP Promises that has pleased my ears.

It’s a big song in scope, but it’s done so in such a manner that feels intimate in the sense that she’s singing to you. It’s hard to ignore the similarities in “Promises” to a Florence and The Machine song, from the style to her vocals, but it’s a compliment if anything.

There are a lot of people speculating about her background (she used to release music under her real name Aryn Wüthrich), and how she was able to obtain such big names to produce her as a newcomer, but honestly, who gives a shit? (If you do care, she responded to this very question in the Stereogum comment section) The music speaks for herself, and I’m digging “Promises” quite hard. The EP was released on new indie label Friends Keep Secrets, so take that for what its worth.

Stream both “Promises” and “OcaHate” below. You can also find the entire EP streaming below.

Foxes In Fiction – Ontario Gothic

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Foxes In Fiction

Toronto native Warren Hildebrand, known in the music world as Foxes In Fiction, is gearing up for the release of his sophomore Ontario Gothic, which will be released via his own label Orchid Tapes on September 23.

He already shared the stunning track “Shadows Song”, and now he’s let go of the title track, “Ontario Gothic.” It’s a heartbreaking song that details the death of Hildebrand’s friend Cait, who passed away in 2010 and to whom the album is dedicated to. Instead of sounding bleak or morbid, it’s more of a melancholic celebration of his friend, sounding bright and hopeful. It’s honest and beautiful. Like “Shadow’s Song” it features violin arrangements by Owen Pallett.

Owl John – Red Hand

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Owl John

When Scott Hutchison isn’t singing lead vocals for Frightened Rabbit, he’s releasing his own solo music under the guise Owl John. In August he released his self-titled debut album via Atlantic Records.

The record’s single “Red Hand” is a more polished off version of Hutchison’s work with Frightened Rabbit, but it’s a good look for the Scottish singer. He sounds confident and assured over the well produced track, which soars towards the great heights that you come to expect from Hutchinson.

Check out the song below via it’s official music video, which was directed by Storme Whitby-Grubb & Charles Gibson.

[new]: Stars – Turn It Up

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2014

Stars No One Is Lost

Montreal group Stars will return with their new album No One Is Lost on October 14 via ATO Records.

“From The Night” was the first single from the album and it features a killer 80s funk groove that is irresistible. They’ve since followed that up with a new track titled “Turn It Up” that they released as a free download as a “back to school” celebration of sorts.

They wrote:

The first day of school carries the fear, the thrill, the nerves and the new. Summer evaporates into hallways, lockers and knapsacks. Chances for gangs and that perfect crush. Hope you had a good one today kids. If you did, if you didn’t, close your eyes get your headphones on, lie on the floor and open your heart to September. No one is lost…so turn it up.

The track is more of a reflective wonder that takes an elegant turn for the better. It hits many levels of emotions, a better fit during last call than on the dancefloor.

Find streams of both “Turn It Up” (free download via the widget) and “From The Night” posted below, along with Stars upcoming tour dates which include a stop in New York on October 5 for the Modern Sky Festival. Read the rest of this entry »
