Oczy Mlody is the latest Lips sensation (and proper full-length release to follow-up 2013’s The Terror). The album orbits Yoshimi, The Soft Bulletin, and even chunks of The Terror, but not without helplessly entering another dimension for a brief look around.
“Painting Of Skeletal Goats Grinding Their Teeth Across The Sky,” from the record due out later this week, is a entrancing encapsulation of the record as a whole; across its 5-minute run time, Imelda Marcos eschew traditionally math-y song structures for something more sonically cohesive and understandable.
Welcome Keeping to the fold, a new band with an already stellar pedigree. The trio of Tyler Scurlock (Sharks' Teeth), Robert Landry (All People), and Greg Rodrigue (All People) recorded their debut album Ruin Value early last year with Ross Farbe (Video Age) and they're set to release it on March 10th via Community.
Welcome to FUZZY MEADOWS, where we recap the past week in music. We're sharing our top ten favorite releases of the week in the form of albums, singles, and music videos along with the "further listening" section of new and notable releases from around the web.
Heavenly Records artist Annelotte de Graaf, musically known as Amber Arcades, released her album Fading Lines in June of 2016. A refugee legal aid worker, de Graaf has put forth ten tracks of shimmering summery pop, perfect to brighten these cloudy winter days.
Girl Scout's "I Don't Like It" starts off with a laundry list of (potentially) bad ideas... recreational pills, guns, prolonged drug use, and suicide... and that's only the first twenty seconds of the song.
Freaks of Nurture is warm and mystical, swallowing the listener as they sit in the belly of fuzzy-psychedelia. Don't let the dorm-room stoner scare you away as he raves about this being his go-to toking album; this record is full of mystery, lightness, and finesse.
Much like the actual New Year's Day, Double Grave (formerly known as Ego Death)'s new single "New Years Day" is a slow burner. Things can be slow to start after a long New Year's Eve night, but there's an unpredictability that lies ahead.
Written and recorded in the months leading up to his son’s birth, the album is a beautiful discussion of grief, pain, and loss. Sage Schermerhorn, born March 31, 2016, died June 25 from a Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation. His legacy lives on in this album, where Eric works to figure out his new identity as a father with only the memory of his son.
Nots only get better and better with each release. With nine tracks stretched out to thirty six minutes, the songs on Cosmetic take more time to tell their message but the frantic feel is still there. The album is an important listen: it’s a hostile takedown of the world today.
His voice, quiet but not without power behind it, floated over his guitar's running, almost percussively arpeggiated chords. I asked Weaver if he might be interested in coming out to the Macdowell Dam and shooting with us. It turned out to be windy and bright, neither of which are ideal for filming a live acoustic performance, so we walked off the side of the road over rocks covered in tiny wild strawberries and shot this video.
"The Ropes" is the perfect center piece for the EP, a syrupy pop song with inescapable melodies that border on perfection. Luca Balser's vocals are at their best as he sings tightly wound verses of bubblegum pop glory.
The "year end fun" isn't over just yet. You've read our spectacular "Year In Review" feature and checked out the "Staff Picks" count-down, but now it's time to hear from some friends of the site in a feature we're calling "Guest List"

The record's first single "Is It Jood?" is full of esoteric beauty and lo-fi driven pop experimentations. Fish builds sounds on top of each other with warped guitars, drifting flutes, programmed beats and nature samples blending together in a fog.
