65daysofstatic

We're back. With music. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

First up, there's a fine line between experimental rock, math rock and just lots of noise. 65daysofstatic fit snugly in the good portion of that particular Venn diagram. And I was wondering what this track might look like live: "Safe Passage" from last year's Wild Light. Sort of insane and majestic all at once. (Amazon: CD; MP3; Vinyl. Official site.)

Little Comets

More music picks for your whenever-you-damn-well-need-them. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

First up: Little Comets, out of the UK, have their album Life is Elsewhere, which was released last month. The track in question is "Woman Woman," with an acoustic video. First thought: the lead singer looks so pained. They're on tour in October in the States--someone buy that man a drink. Please. Second thought: the jogger who runs past at over a minute in: he's an MVP. For more info, their official site. (Amazon: CD; MP3; Vinyl / Spotify.)

Maison du Malheur

More music picks for your whenever-you-damn-well-need-them. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

No one should be surprised that I dig Maison du Malheur ("House of Misfortune" if Google Translate is to be believed)--out of The Netherlands they bring horns to the table, as well as a sound their press kit says is "Dust Bowl Depression Era Jump Jive Blues." So very accurate. And this guy's voice is fantastic. Seriously, this is something I could see Tom Waits happily listening to while drinking. The song in question is "Blue" from their album Wicked Transmission. Very recommended. Your best bet for snagging it is their Bandcamp page.

Heaven

More music picks for your week. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

The trio from Brooklyn is known as Heaven and the track in question is "Colors in the Whites of Your Eyes." (Official video after the break.) To me, it's like a psychedelic track that's coming back down from a decent trip and really could just use a cup of coffee and a bagel. It's from their album Telepathic Love, due out July 30th. Their official site is here, where you can snag a free Covers EP. Lovely. (Song: Spotify; Album: CD, MP3, Vinyl.)

Sigur Ros

More music picks for your...well, it's been a week. So we're just posting this now because the week needs music. We hope you agree. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

One thing that always bugs me is when you have umpteen people on stage and you don't have umpteen people's worth of sound happening. A band that does not have that problem, apparently, is Sigur Ros. Here they are providing a veritable wall of sonic goodness from The Tonight Show...it's the title track from their album Kveikur, due out June 18th. Check out their official site here. (Amazon: CD; Vinyl.)

Alice in Chains 2013

More music picks for your Monday. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

Alice in Chains was a band that I enjoyed after picking up Dirt in the wake of digging the absolute shit out of "Would?" from the Singles soundtrack. And then I enjoyed the hell out of it...and to a certain extent everything that came after...especially their "Let's try something slightly different" EPs like Jar of Flies and Sap. And then as they fell apart during and after the loss of vocalist Layne Staley, I sort of lost touch. Seemed like whenever I caught them, there was something about it that just wasn't...them. But now, having heard the new single "Stone" from the upcoming The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, I feel like I'm getting a suitable successor to Staley and yet the band just isn't Alice in Chains Again. And while trying to find a live performance of "Stone," I stumbled across this: and thus, witness William DuVall nailing the shit out of "Kashmir," back by the rest of AIC and a freaking orchestra, recorded in 2009 (I think).

We open first with NYC's Vampire Weekend--their Modern Vampires of the City hits this week, their third album. Here's a recent performance, after the jump, of "Unbelievers" live on KCRW. (Amazon: CD/MP3; MP3; Vinyl.)

Savages

More music picks for your Tuesday. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

First up we have Savages, coming up after the jump with a variation on their opening track from Silence Yourself: "Shut Up." It has what is probably my favorite opening monologue since Timothy Leary's extended sample on the live Salival version of Tool's "Third Eye." Their album hits this week and it's caffeinated rock with a medium grind. We like it. (Amazon: CD; MP3; Vinyl.)

Karl Hyde

More music picks for your Tuesday, co-curated this week by Rob and Widge. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

First up, a pick from Rob: it's Karl Hyde of Underworld fame, with his first solo album, Edgeland. From Rob: "Half Of Underworld's solo debut is a record of blips, bleeps, expansive sounds and grooves." Indeed. The album is already out, though the MP3 version is, according to Amazon, not available until May 7th for some reason. After the jump we have "Sleepless," live in Tokyo from this year. (Amazon: CD; Vinyl.)
