This event is all ages
The Thermals have recently finished recording their sixth LP (title and label TBA) with John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Hold Steady) at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ. Mixing was completed October 28th, just hours before Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast.
The Thermals hope to have the new record released in early spring of 2013, and will be making (m)an(y) appearance(s) at SXSW in March. Almost two and a half years have passed since their last record, Personal Life (Kill Rock Stars, 2010) came out. But as David Lynch told Louis C.K. in his three rules for show business, "You gotta go away to come back".
The Thermals describe the upcoming album as "Everything Thermals fans know and love about this band. It's like a cross between two of our best-known and -loved records, More Parts Per Million (Sub Pop, 2003) and The Body, The Blood, The Machine (Sub Pop, 2006.) It's loud, fast, incredibly scary and undeniably catchy."
Dirty Ghosts are pale and unwashed, yet they are fresh.
"While listening to the debut album from San Francis- co’s Dirty Ghosts, the finer aspects of their dirty met- al-blues roots is at-once difficult to ascertain, and somehow easy to imagine. For every bubbly vocal cadence perpetrated by vocalist Allyson Baker, some filthy riff comes up for air to anchor a surfacing edgi- ness. When one of Aesop Rock’s deftly articulated drum programming contributions blasts into being, the inherent groove found in the group’s funktastic milieu takes the wheel and steers a bouncy batch of highly danceable cuts away from the shoulder. Looted from the still-warm corpse of SF’s Parchman Farm in 2006, Baker and bassist Carson Binks began as a duo bent on rawer sonic sensibilities—essen- tially a stripped-down version of their former group. But Binks’ 2011 ship-jump necessitated a new direc- tion for Baker, away from the blues-swathed avenues she’d been dabbling in, and into a newer chapter that included surmounting an aversion to singing. Helped along by Rock’s influence—it ought to be known, lest the continental collide seem strange, he’s Baker’s husband—the debut album, Metal Moon, proffers an urbanized pop-rock piñata, bursting with saccha- rine-sweet melodies, multi-dimensional beats and a wealth of sultry sonatas." --NOISE POP
The She's met on the playground as six year olds, and have been friends since then and band mates for almost as long. Hailing from the beautiful and foggy San Francisco CA, Samantha Perez, Hannah Valente, Eva Treadway, and Sinclair Riley share a love for pop music from the 50s and 60s and write music which reflects these influences within their own brand of west-coast-garage-pop. They are no strangers to great harmonies and hooks and have been described as "The Ronettes meets The Ramones," but also offer something new and exciting to these classic sounds. The She's released their debut album, "*Then It Starts To Feel Like Summer*" in November, and have been fortunate enough to share the stage with several of the very bands that inspired the album, such as Girls and The Morning Benders. The She's strive to make timeless and interesting pop music that grabs and inspires you. So please, listen, dance and enjoy.
E V Kain (ex-Hella)
"The newly emerging self-produced band E V Kain released their first single, a happy lighthearted machination of atypical rhythm. November 12, past members of the bands Hella, Cigar, and Broken Bells dropped 'Yes No Maybe,' a fond promise of things to come from this technical three piece. 'Yes No Maybe' promises a lot of potential to listeners of this up and coming band, blending smooth melody with complex time signature rhythms." --Mathrock.net
