Austin boys The Black and White Years are releasing a new album Patterns next month! Their live show was probably the best of 2009 for me. You can stream more at their myspace.
The Black and White Years - Up! Click to listen!
At the end of this month, LA's Warpaint is releasing a new album too, The Fool... The new stuff is so produced sounding, I really miss their earlier more drug-induced haze and Karen O co-produced... I don't get it.
Warpaint - Undertow
Warpaint - Ashes to Ashes [David Bowie cover]
Beetles off of Exquisite Corpse EP
Let's get naked and rip down the wall
That makes me crazy, tell me how
Someone hold my hand and give me lessons
cuz I wanna melt the knot inside of it
I am not prepared, I just gotta gotta get there,
where am I, why can't I just get it together?
Fuck it, where's my shit?
They're touring with Zola Jesus right now and she plays this weekend in Austin at Red 7 but I won't be able to make it. fml
