Tiny Mix Tapes: Termination Dust Tour Announce (With Modest Mouse) And Debut Of “White Walls Video”

Noisey: Interview With Sexy Dex And The Fresh And Debut Of The Video For “Play Me Birdie”

SDTF aren’t necessarily the “typical” sort of band you might imagine would come out of New Orleans … On the one hand, they sound like all the most palatable, pure pop-funk sounds from the 80s (think Prince, Rick Astley etc).

American Standard Time: Review of Guts Club’s ‘Trench Foot’

Her songs range from complex emotional trips, to simple setups for abrupt punchlines. This is absurd, humorous, tragic, Jim Jarmusch country. No doubt her songs descend from her visual arts expertise (think music that sounds like a Nevelson or Bourgeois sculpture might), but there’s a familiar element to Guts Club’s music. The feeling of impending doom, demanding you gather friends, and get back to the simple things, like learning a few guitar chords, and starting a lo-fi band.
