  • 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 […]

  • Surf City: Jekyll Island

    As its title implies, there's a battle of personalities raging on Jekyll Island.

    As its title implies, there's a battle raging on Jekyll Island, the third full-length from Kiwi psychgaze foursome Surf City. Opener "Beat the Summer Heat" practically shimmers on the pavement, a loping groove and Davin Stoddard's mantra-like vocals summoning a beer koozy and beach chair. Properly chillaxed, the boys then go from Jekyll to Hyde and reveal their pop chops (and Britrock knowledge) with a handful of winning, Johnny-Marr-by-way-of-Felt janglers – "Spec City", "Hollow Veins",…

  • Speedy Ortiz: stories from the vanguard of a college rock revival

    The Massachusetts band explains why they’re more into swimming and nu-metal than Pavement and proms

    Speedy Ortiz singer and guitarist Sadie Dupuis is wearing a black dress backstage at the Bowery Ballroom, a few hours before Speedy Ortiz’s sold-out New York show. She is wearing a convex gold necklace. “My bandmates told me I look like I’m dressed for prom right now,” she says. This dress also illustrates her idea of the Foil Deer, the title of the record the Massachusetts band released last week.

  • Red Wedge: bringing Labour party politics to young music fans

    In the runup to the election, Rock’s Backpages turns to the March 1996 edition of Q magazine to resurrect an oral history of Red Wedge, the political initiative set up by the likes of Billy Bragg, Paul Weller and Tom Robinson 30 years ago

    Billy Bragg: I suppose the Wedge came about because we all kept meeting at benefit gigs for Nicaragua or whatever. The same faces kept showing up – like Jimmy Somerville, Paul Weller, Tom Robinson – and we all shared similar ideals. Those were the darkest days of the Thatcherite 80s, as well. There was a feeling that something had to be done.

  • Speedy Ortiz: Foil Deer

    They may party like it's 1995, but 2015 might just be the year of Speedy Ortiz.

    The year 1995 was a good one, maybe indie rock's best. It was a year that yielded some of the genre's most challenging work, exemplified by Pavement's wily Wowee Zowee, which felt like the product of a band freed from earlier expectations that indie was going to be the next grunge. And while 1993 is often cited as the date of college-rock's sexual revolution, 1995 ended up launching more revolutionary feminist-rock salvos, be it P.J.…
