In an attempt to blog more (and due to the massive influx of MP3’s I’ve been receiving on account of my job as Music Director at KSLU) I am initiating a little thing I like to call Grab Bag Thursdayz! Why? Because we like to share good musics with you in hopes that you will eventually buy all of it. This week, we’ve got some stuff by Atlas Sound, Parenthetical Girls, and Ponytail.
We love Bradford Cox. That being said, we’re pretty much down with everything he is involved in. Atlas Sound is obviously no exception. And while Deerhunter is off doing dates with Nine Inch Nails (still not sure how that one worked out) we will wait for Bradford’s triumphant solo return. The track below is off of Atlas Sound’s Atlas Shrugged 7″.
Parenthetical Girls is Zac Pennington, Dead Science‘s Jherek Bischoff, and Xiu Xiu‘s Jamie Stewart. Their third and exceptionally original new album, Entanglements, is set for release on Tomlab on September 9th. Pre-order your copy on insound.com NOW!
What can I say? Baltimore’s Ponytail has been a personal favorite of mine for a while now. Their latest album, Ice Cream Spiritual, came out in July (a long time ago in the blogging world) but I can’t stop supporting these spazzy weirdos.
