track for today… andreae / birchall / cheetham 'dude, you look like sea sick steve'
I love a good song title, and 'Dude, You Look Like Sea Sick Steve' works for me. Andreae / Birchall / Cheetham is Samuel Andreae (tenor sax), David Birchall (guitar) and Andrew Cheetham (drums), who do a kind of angry post-rock-guitar-ified free jazz. This track is from their cassette I Didn't Mind You Improvising, I Just Wish You'd Done It Better – another good title right there – released on Tombed Visions Records.
track for today… octagrape 'a ton of love'
There aren't enough bands around that do this kind of twisty, swervy indie rock, as we were spoilt with in the magical 1990s. San Diego's Octagrape are doing the right thing, though, as in this track from a recent tour cassette that also features Trumans Water and Permanent Makeup.
track for today… six organs of admittance 'wax chance'
Some superfine loping'n'squalling guitar skronk from the forthcoming Six Organs Of Admittance album Hexadic, due for releasing on Drag City later this month.
track for today… death and vanilla 'run rabbit run'
It's not exactly new - it originally came out in January 2014 - but Death And Vanilla's self-titled EP has recently been repressed on vinyl. The moody Kraut-pop of 'Run Rabbit Run' is one of its seven tracks.
track for today… rafael anton irisarri 'will her heart burn anymore_60'
Channelling the fuzzy, vacuum-cleaner-next-door warmth of Flying Saucer Attack, this track is from New Yorker Rafael Anton Irisarri's recently-released four-track EP Will Her Heart Burn Anymore.
