Normally, I’d have an image on this part somewhere but fuck it, there’s too much to listen to and being too organized is a frightening reputation to have. I’m not ready for that kind of pressure.
Alright, it finally occurred to me what image should go up. There, now I’m a little more dependable.
I don’t know when I decided to stop keeping things in order anymore. I don’t time anything, I don’t schedule it and worst of all, I no longer stress out about doing so. That’s me taking it easy, which is stupid. One things for sure thought, there’s always great new music happening everywhere and everyone’s trying to get their piece of the creative pie. Thanks to apps and pocket devices, I can tap into anything out there twenty four seven and I do.
Even more, thanks to the oldest food in human culture — beer, I can get the people that matter to tell me what’s up in the scene. Can I say that I’m over Sufjan Stevens today? I just hit the skip on that track. Okay. Now I feel bad. I’m gonna break these up in chunks cause I want to talk about all of it in healthy portions. So let’s do this thing!
We wrote a little about these guys in July and they’ve just posted some new info on their Facebook page about an upcoming album during the first week of September but you don’t have to wait to hear it. Here’s their post:
If you’re a new fan and haven’t heard anything we’ve put out, please go give it a listen on spotify! Even though, it’s just a little money they do send us checks every time you guys listen. That helps us start the recording and touring process all over again. Since our first record “Huj! Huj! Hajrah!” was released in 2012 we released a 2 song EP on digital outlets only, entitled “Ey, Miner”…which were 2 songs recorded during the sessions of our new album, “Cisco” (Sept. 2, 2014). We will also have in the coming months following “Cisco” a 4 song EP released on digital outlets only entitled “Ghosts of Cisco”. Please stay tuned, as we’re always trying to keep music coming out and tour as often as we’re allowed. Really thank you guys the most…Bye!
So if you have an account with spotify, then get on that. If you don’t then get one, we’ll be checking out that album fo sho! http://open.spotify.com/artist/3tfk9ZzGqVmsAoyLyltorc, if you’re a bit reluctant to go check that out, here’s a sample of what to expect:
I am super fucking obsessed with this woman. She’s everything I want and everything I need. Judging from this video, I think she might have a slight obsession all her own with Michael Jackson. Not a big deal because he wins every time. While we’re at it, let me also say that Justin Timberlake annoys the shit out of me. Okay.
But this blog is about good music you haven’t heard of and my playlist, which, turns out, is full of stuff you haven’t heard. It’s also full of stuff I haven’t heard. I listen to tons of this everyday and all day and so it’s always changing. Every now and again, something sticks and this has certainly done that!
If you like this video and maybe you saw the other one posted on our Facebook page, then check out this other track for which they too have a video too.
Back in the day (circa 2010) I did an interview with this great then Dallas band. They’ve since moved to New York but they’re still killing it to this day with new tracks in the works, as this video from this year shows. New album not too far away. It’s not too late to improve your music collection with these two EPs. I’m telling you, man. You want this.
According to their Facebook page, they will be at the Bowery in New York on August 29th. Get into it! Just so you know, they’ve opened for BRMC. So I know what I’m talking about.
Cleric (Dallas, TX)
Alright guys. No more fucking around. Tonight, these guys will be playing a much anticipated show at Club Dada opening for the O.C. monoliths Phobia. I’m not fucking around, the talent buyers aren’t fucking around and neither is Cleric, with the work that went into the beautiful artwork for the vinyl you can buy from the bandcamp shop below.
