Rock and roll lives on in Nashville’s GYASI, a peacock loving musician from Nashville with a flair for bellowing vocals and vehement riffs. He’s fully captured our ears and inspired us to bust out our best air guitar moves with new single Sugar Mama, a wild, untamed, and glamorous spectacular that channels Bowie, T Rex, Rolling Stones, and all the best dusty brawling classic rock of prior decades. GYASI was reportedly brought up in a unique environment, laced with roaming peacocks, a family of Russian intellectual revolutionaries, and two parents dedicated to living off the land. This isolated upbringing felt more like the 60s or 90s. GYASI was exposed to a lot of blues, Velvet Underground, and T. Rex records. It’s no wonder his new single is this glorious. You can stream Sugar Mama via Spotify, here.

It’s a classic chugging brand of rock and roll that The Mystery Lights brings us on their latest single Follow Me Home, one with much grungy garage flair and gritty punk ridges. The band, fresh off a highly praised first ever European tour, brings us a sound that evokes the acidic psychedelia of the 60s and 70s. Follow Me Home is a glorious chunk of robust and rugged sexiness. Watch the fittingly lo-fi video for Follow Me Home below. The song will be on the band’s self titled LP, due out June 24th on Daptone Records’ new rock subsidiary, Wick Records.

Wildling is an unsigned five piece from Los Angeles that previously escaped my attention, but as they prepare to embark on their first tour this week in support of Hey Marseilles, they’ve stolen my heart with a cover of Neil Young’s Heart Of Gold. The indie rock rendition of the timeless classic is a moody electrifier, a pensively dynamic gem shrouded in weary misery. The stunning cover is a free download now, here, and view their tour dates, here. It looks like Wildling will be hitting up Brick+Mortar in San Francisco next week with Hey Marseilles, a gig I might have to try and make my way out to.

Fresh out of the UK is a new 22 year old singer songwriter named Lawrence Taylor, and he’s about to blow your mind with his bluesy, soulful, and earnest rock music. New track Waiting For Your Love is a taste from an upcoming EP named Bang Bang, and it boasts the smoothness of Chet Faker as well as the ardent, swooning qualities we love about Hozier. And I haven’t even mentioned the thrilling classic rock guitar solo yet. The superb track demonstrates a stunning maturity and depth to this newcomer and his music. Keep an eye on this fella.

The Raveonettes – The End (The Doors cover)

March 6, 2014

Danish indie rock duo The Raveonettes decided to offer up a psychedelic cover of The Doors classic The End. It’s a gentle, whimsical treat that made me melt the moment the opening bars hit. It’s their contribution to A Psych Tribute To The Doors, out March 4 on Cleopatra, which is a compilation of covers by a long list of bands.

Win of AF + Rolling Stones!

June 10, 2013

The Rolling Stones have been touring and inviting some great guests on stage at their different stops, but this one has got to be one of the coolest yet. While in Montreal, who else should be invited on stage but Montreal resident Win Butler of Arcade Fire? The crummy video clip by a fan leaves lots to be desired, but I was still mesmerized by their performance of The Last Time from beginning to end. I also never noticed how gigantor Win actually is??? How come he looks so huge next to the Stones? Or is it that I never realized how tiny Jagger and the rest of em are?

Fuzzy Fuzz

January 4, 2013

San Francisco indie garage rocker Ty Segall is never able to sit still. In his latest venture, he formed a new act titled Fuzz with his guitarist Charlie Moothart. They released a 7" that features the songs This Time I Got a Reason and Fuzz’s Fourth Dream. The songs are as fuzzy and woozy as one would expect from a band named Fuzz. The lo-fi, growling, hairy guitars are as deeply satisfying as possible, especially on This Time I Got A Reason, which very much envokes Sabbath/classic hard rock. The distorted, wonked out vocals of both tracks are very psychedelic and easy to lose yourself in. Stream both heavy weight songs below.
