Pick Up America

Screen Shot 2016-09-18 at 16.51.45

My Son Bison is a four-piece band out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They’ve spent the last five years forging their own brand of experimental folk inspired by everything from the Beach Boys to the guachos of Argentina. They decided recording the album entirely on acoustic instruments including twelve-string guitars, upright bass, a mandolin, strings, horns, and more. The result is My Son Bison’s debut: Two Faces One Vase.

My favorite track off the EP is “Pick Up America.” It’s a nod to Davey Rogner’s epic journey across America and a group he was working with who called themselves “Pick Up America.” When describing why he wrote the song, Dane Galloway says that he gets a kick out of saying things like “This song is about picking up trash” but it’s about much more than that. “It’s kind of about making trash. And making money. And how they are probably the same. And only when we are living in a Water World where all the water is Fisher Price toys and Chinese food containers are we going to a sense of what a waste our waste is.”

The Lampshades

The Lampshades are three guys from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who have been playing music together a long time. Dane Adelman on drums, Chris Kibler on bass, and Jaren Love on vocals/guitar.

Their first single, “Joanie” reminds me of the frat-rock coming out of the U.S. in the mid 60s (think “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen). It has that grungy Lo-Fi indie rock flavour that rock bands started exploring at the beginning of rock and roll.

The Lampshades are set to release a new LP called Astrology in 2017.

Mark Pritchard – Beautiful People

Sydney, Australian based producer, Mark Pritchard has teamed up with Thom Yorke to create the latest single off of his upcoming album: Under The Sun. The track is called “Beautiful People” and it’s a delicate mix of dreamy synth and Lo-Fi percussion. Sprinkle some of Thom Yorke’s vocal on top and you have a very interesting track.

Michał Marczak directed a video to go along with the track which has been awarded an official select at the Sundance Film Festival.

Under The Sun is available on Bleep and iTunes now.

London based band, Ten Fé have just put out another single called “Turn.” The track features the band’s signature hybrid sound of lazy Americana guitars mixed with reverb-filled vocal harmonies and we’re digging it.

Pre-order the 7” single from Rough Trade Records and you’ll score a remix from Ewan Pearson.

Trails & Ways New Album Coming Soon

trails-and-ways

Trails & Ways have just released two new singles off of their upcoming album Own It.

The second single called “Happiness” questions how you can seek happiness. Do you try and act happy when things are down in order to change your mood. Or is that just fake happiness? Trails & Ways frontman Keith Brown believes that “seeking real happiness means you have to be honest when you’re not, and that’s the scarier path.”

The other nifty thing about this upcoming album is that it has been largely funded by the fans. The band have given you the chance to be a part of bringing the album to life by putting the project up on Kickstarter where you can donate to the cause. Depending on the size of your donation, your contribution could earn you anything from a pre-ordered copy of the album to a private show at your house! There are 9 days left to donate, so if your keen to support some California-dreampop, get over to Kickstarter and donate.

Trails & Ways – Happiness

Trails & Ways – Get Loud
