The Vaccines

The Vaccines

Wall of sound, pop hooks, and British origin are to be regarded with suspicion in my realm. I can’t help but love The Vaccines, though. I love their record. “A Lack of Understanding” has been rollercoastering around my dome all week, though “Norgaard” is probably more representative of their work. Surfer Blood might be an American analog. I hope they kill it at Coachella.



Manhattan Murder Mystery snag December residency at The Satellite, preview music video for “Owen Hart”

Manhattan Murder Mystery snag December residency at The Satellite, preview music video for “Owen Hart”

It makes me happy that The Satellite has booked Manhattan Murder Mystery for their December residency. I always thought my favorite post-punk in the garage rock band would forever be relegated to art galleries, house parties, and midnight sets for headliners in the know. Their following is strong. The Movies had a December residency once.

In case you’ve forgotten: Mondays, at the Satellite, are free. I recommend Manhattan Murder Mystery because their music makes me feel more alive, and their fans are wonderful and devoted. Always a fun live show.

My friends at Thrillhouse Productions have been working on a video for the MMM track “Owen Hart”. I love the guitar hook in that song. Preview clip for the video after the jump.

The Airborne Toxic Event – “Changing” video

When CGT first emerged as a music blog, my site was probably more known for shrieking enthusiasm than, say, expertly refined taste. Few bands were the beneficiaries of said enthusiasm more than The Airborne Toxic Event, who just released a music video for their new song “Changing”.

MUSIC VIDEO: Echo Lake – “Young Silence”

Mark the occasion, Classical Geek Thespians! Here atop my rockist-built throne, I’m going to link to an Altered Zones post… favorably, even! I oft scorn the common hipster and her nonsensical nostalgic proclivities, but Echo Lake (London, UK) have done something oh-so-right with their music video for “Young Silence”.

MUSIC NEWS: The Pass (Louisville, KY) play The Satellite Tuesday 02-01-11

I don’t normally go for the dancy indie bands these days, but The Pass (Louisville, KY) captured my ears last year based on a personal recommendation from We Listen For You. Now the band (and WLFY Zach!) are coming to LA for a visit. The Pass play The Satellite this Tuesday, February 1st. (Local up-and-commers Marvelous Toy open). Details after the jump.

MUSIC VIDEO: Gasoline Silver – “Indianapolis”

Mr. Kevin Bronson sent me this video a little while ago. I don’t know anything about Gasoline Silver except that they’re from Minneapolis. I’m only posting this because the song is called Indianapolis, which you well know, is the city of my origin. And I like bouncy garage stuff.

MUSIC VIDEO: Casxio – “My Book”

Casxio is one of the hardest-working, tightest, audience-minded bands in Los Angeles. They are also the funkiest band you’re liable to find. Continue reading…
