Naomi Punk – Burned Body
Naomi Punk’s album “The Feeling” is being re-released this November on their new label, after a limited press of 300 or so albums back in April of this year, it is a standout punk album and not much of a surprise that the band hails from Olympia, WA- must be something in the trees up there. . .
Moon Duo – Sleepwalker~7 minutes Moon Duo’s new album “Circles” dropped on the 1st of October and is a good ride. Psychedelic, bouncing rhythmic melodies and ethereal vocals mix and mellow throughout. Check out their website – here. An excerpt from their “About” page: Inspiration for many of the songs themes, as well as the title Circles, came from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1841 essay by the same name, on the symbol and nature of “the flying Perfect.” From the opening lines: “The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.” And so it goes. Rust never sleeps.
Ty Segall – The Hill ~8 minutes
Ty Segall is on a tear, he’ll be playing at the Treasure Island Music Festival smack dab in the middle of the San Francisco Bay, on October 14th as one of his last remaining shows of a jam packed year. Last year he released 2 albums, but he had plenty more to give in 2012. His solo album, Twins, will be his third album this year. Last month, the Ty Segall Band, released Slaughterhouse, and earlier this year Ty Segall toured with White Fence supporting their April release of Family Purfume. He’s a busy boy and I hope he’s got something left for 2013, because I didn’t catch him once this year and I’d really like to see him play. . .
