  • Places to Hide share video from final album, 'Strange Lyfe'

    by Andrew Sacher

    It's always a bummer when a band decides to call it quits when they're still in the promising early stages of their career, but that's what Atlanta indie rockers Places to Hide have decided to do. They first caught our ears with their very solid 2013 debut album, Almost Nothing, and after that they inked a deal with exciting new-ish label Tiny Engines for last year's Wild N Soft EP. Apparently it was a one-album deal, as they've now announced that their next and final album, Strange Lyfe, will be out September 20 via Irrelevant Recordings. Their sound has always been part driving melodic punk, part apathetic indie rock, and the album's title track leans more towards the latter, sounding like Lou Reed via Pavement. You can watch its video below.

  • Pavement releasing series of rarities compilations, first one's out in August (artwork, tracklist)

    by Bill Pearis

    Pavement are going through their closets and junk drawers for a series of five rarities compilations due out via Matador Records. The first of those is titled The Secret History Vol 1 and will be out August 11, focusing on the band's formative years up through their debut album Slanted & Enchanted. It includes b-sides, rarities, Peel Sessions -- which was on the Luxe & Reduxe double CD reissue of Slanted -- but also a live concert from London 1992, and this will be the first time all of this has appeared on one vinyl set. The gatefold double-LP features new essays from Stephen Malkmus and Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg, as well as remembrances from relevant folks at Matador Records, booking agency Billions Corporation, and Drag City. Pre-orders are available and you can check out the artwork and tracklist below.

    California Death by California Death Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, California Death is a four-piece that produces a wonderfully hypnotic blend of dream-pop, psych-rock, and shoegaze. Leading off their new self-titled album is the track “Wake”, a nice representation of the band’s numerous strengths. Possessing nonchalant and rhythmically responsive vocals reminiscent of post-punk acts like Pavement, […]

  • Tomorrows Tulips – “When” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

    On the title track from last year’s When, Burger Records rockers and blatant apostrophe-omitters Tomorrows Tulips run the label’s trademark throwback West Coast garage rock through a ’90s alt-rock churn. I’d cite Yo La Tengo’s immortal cover of the Beach Boys’ “Little Honda,” but it’s a bit like Pavement taking a crack at a similar […]
