Lace Curtains: ‘A Signed Piece Of Paper’

November 18, 2014 0 comments


We are still bummed about the current hiatus (or possible end) of the Austin, Texas trio Harlem, but from that departing has birthed some great tunes from others bands coming from all 3 members – From Curtis O’Mara’s Grape St. to Jose Boyer’s Las Rosas – And not to mention Michael Coomers’ Lace Curtains, who’s 2012 release ‘The Garden Of Joy And The Well Of Loneliness’ still graces our turntable monthly.

So with that said, not only were were pretty pumped to hear that Lace Curtains has returned with a sophomore LP, ‘A Signed Piece Of Paper,’ but glad we waited a couple of weeks to pick up the new record that came out last month via Female Fantasy Records… Why you ask? Well, thought Burger Records’ eBay account (Nopickles), Lace Curtains is releasing a Burger-exclusive bundle version of the LP that come with a limited edition screen-printed/hand-painted posters by Michael Coomers!

ACT FAST, because there are only 100 and those suckers won’t last long! Pick up your limited bundle of HERE… Or if you’re too late there are still copies at via Lace Curtains’ tumblr page HERE

Check out a couple key tracks from the ‘A Signed Piece Of Paper’ LP below including the official video for ‘The Fly.’



Dead Ghosts: ‘Roky Said’

February 14, 2013 0 comments

Damn, do we love us some Dead Ghosts! Their 2010 debut LP from Florida’s Dying Records still makes its way to our turntables monthly! Why do we mention this you ask? Well, the 4-piece from Vancouver are gearing up for their sophomore record, ‘Can’t Get No,’ dropping on April 30th via one of our favorite labels out there, Burger Records.

The first taste from the LP has come just in time for Valentine’s day via MTV Hive (of all the places). So give a whirl to the band’s first single, ‘Roky Said,’ below and get ready for a vinyl pre-order from Burger in the near future, including some limited wax pressings… While ‘yer at it, also check out a few key tracks from their debut with the free downloads of ‘When It Comes To You’ and ‘Getting Older.’ The LP is currently out-of-print, but there should be a repressing via Florida’s Dying around the time ‘Can’t Get No’ drops in April. Enjoy:

Seth Pettersen & The Undertow: ‘Natural Machine’

September 27, 2012 0 comments

Seth Pettersen & The Undertow are a band from Los Angeles, CA, who just dropped their new LP, ‘Natural Machine,’ in physical form via Burger Records, pressed and numbered on 250 cassettes… We say “physical” because the album was self released back in July as a Bandcamp MP3 download only.

At first glance, the album’s cover features frontman Seth holding a surfboard backdropped with palm trees, taking us into the mindset of surf and Summer. Then at first listen, we weren’t deceived,  receiving that Calafornia Summer vibe we expected with a nice mix of phychedilics and classic folk rock. Great album, not just for the beach or Summer, but for anytime.

Now, give the LP some justice and press this sucker on wax!.. Stream the full ‘Natural Machine’ album below and if you dig what-cha hear (and you don’t mind cassettes), pick-up the new tape HERE… Oh, and download the single ‘Breaking Points’ for FREE (below the LP steam):


Natural Child: New single, LP & Texas Tour Announcement

July 11, 2012 0 comments

As we told you earlier this year, Natural Child planned on dropping 3 LPs in 2012 — The reissue of ‘Bodyswitchers’ in March (originally released on cassette via Infinity Cat) and ‘For the Love of he Game’ that dropped on Burger Records on April 20th, and now ‘Hard In Heaven,’ which is also coming out via Burger Records on September 11th!

The first single from ‘Hard In Heaven’ is a track called ‘B$G P$MP$N,’ and in per a typical Natural Child fashion, simplistically and almost effortlessly kills it once again… Check out the hot track below and also catch Natural Child all over this US this Summer!

GET TO KNOW: Summer Twins

April 5, 2012 0 comments

It is already feeling like Summer down South, which not only prematurely starts the rise of our pollen count and the breeding of mosquitos, but starts our quest for the perfect soundtrack to Summer. Oh course we have our trusty stands-bys: A dash of Little Joy, a side of Devendra Banhart and you can’t forget Tennis’s debut LP — all Summer essential albums… but what is another season without adding a couple more LPs to that ever-growing list?

After digging into Summer Twins‘ self-titled LP, we are officially proclaiming our first new Summer jam… I guess there is no hiding behind the name and it helps to be from California, but this LP just screaming beach-time classic. A nice blend of Tennis meets Best Coast, take a listen for yourself and stream the full LP below:

Unfortunately this album is sold out in vinyl and cassette tape format. We were lucky enough to score a vinyl earlier this year, but if MP3s are alright with you, download the LP HERE
