q and also a :: Shy Mirrors

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Sweden via Chicago powerpopper Mike Downey a/k/a Shy Mirrors sent us these answers to our questions in this q and also a.
 
 
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

a: “Dive” by Nirvana.


 
 
 
q: What is your most common reaction to hearing your own music?

a: If I’m with a group of people I can be weird about it and want it turned off. If I’m alone I turn it up.
 
 
 
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?

a: Guided by Voices.


 
 
 
q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?

a: I spent most of my hanging out in music venues years in Chicago. Fireside Bowl or Empty Bottle were my favorite places to play and see bands.
 
 
 
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

a:The upcoming Taken By Savages album.


 
 
 
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?

a: This latest tape is the first where I truly played all the instruments. Meaning, I got a used drum set and beat the heck out of it even though I don’t really know what I’m doing. It was the most fun I’ve had making music in probably 10 years.

stream these :: currents + w. baer + Drunken Sufis + The Rubs + Beech Creeps + Minidresses

Friday, April 10th, 2015

So, here is this week’s round up of all the necessary audio/video streams. I’m pretty sure that I am leaving something out, so leave a comment and let me know what’s missing. Or not.

Listen.
 
Boston post-whatever band currents has a wacky/violent new video for their track Build Ups. Watch it. Grab their EP @ currentsma.bandcamp.com.


 
 
 
where you fit. is the debut track by Burbank ambient dissonance artist by w. baer. Preorder the LP, Spalting @ hushhushrecords.bandcamp.com. If you are wondering what “spalting” is, it’s the process of wood coloration caused by fungi (mainly) in dead trees. Oh baby.


 
 
 
The avant spazzpunkers known as Drunken Sufis have a new project called Cotton Candy Cluster Bombs. Go to the release show on 4/29 at Palisades and buy a physical representation of the music on optical media. Listen to M^M^M.

And they are releasing music videos for all the songs on the album, 26 in total (yes, one for each letter). Watch the videos on the Drunken Sufis tumblr: americansfuck.tumblr.com.

Here is one of the videos to get you started, D^D^D


 
 
 
Check out Until He’s Mine off of upcoming The Rubs Are Trash LP by Chicago’s own The Rubs. This is an awesome slice of trashy power pop right here.

And dig the album art…

The Rubs
 
 
 
One of GT favorite documenters of the scene, nyctaper, put up a recording of Beech Creeps live at Union Pool from their show last weekend. Dig it (and come see them play BKNB on 2/24).


 
 
 
Finally, Minidresses dropped a dreamy new track called Bracelets off their upcoming Four EP. Pay what you want for Three at minidresses.bandcamp.com and/or buy a tape at Little Death.


 
 
 
AND I did not even get to the new Clean Girls (but I will later, k?)
 
 
 
AND remember there’s always lots to stream at the GIMME TINNITUS Soundcloud or the GT Youtubes, and also at the GT Tumblr too.
