The Paris-based Catholic Spray continue to feed my lo-fi trash rock fetish. Do not/definitely watch this video while high on hallucinogens (though I don’t advocate the use of hallucinogens…just saying…if you’re doing them already…). Also, if you’re prone to seizures, you might want to skip this.
San Fran synth-popsters Melted Toys play the kind of VHS-colour-fuzz lo-fi pop my beloved Altered Zones have been big into of late (Joe Ferrari, Outer Limits Recording) except they’re a little more straightforward. Maybe they’re already coming down from the collective musical 80s-on-acid trip others in the area appear to be enjoying. They’ve got an EP coming out later this month called the Washed and Dried EP. The song below made me curious as to the soundz of said EP…perhaps said band should mail me a copy so I may write more about it… (Via The Aforementioned Website)
So, here at Gold Soundz we’ve got a team of awesome individuals who each contribute something to the magic that is us. One of these individuals is Danny aka The Burger King, who is the coolest, most awesomest guy. He’s a killer singer, a badass door guy, a snappy dresser, and you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t like him.
Anyways, Danny is also a pretty hilarious guy with some interesting opinions on a lot of things, including music, so we’re going to start featuring him in an online series called Danny’s Version, which you can watch on this blog or on YouTube.
In this first, brief episode, Danny talks a bit about The Strokes and how a friend of his enjoys listening to them on coke. We filmed about 3 minutes of this last night at around 1 am, but the footage cuts off just before the first minute mark because my iPhone was running out of power. Also the sound doesn’t sync up at all. We used the 8mm video camera iphone app, which is otherwise a cool app. Not sure if the sound not syncing up is supposed to happen or not.
Hailing from New Windsor, NY, Vacation‘s music is beautiful isolated psych-pop. His solid Tiny Bones and Wires EP is available as a free download off his bandcamp and we like it. But the next artist/pr person/whoever to email every listed email on our contacts page without bothering to notice that only one person actually writes on the blog will have all their tiny bones and wires DESTROYED!
