Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , , on May 10, 2018 by bleedinggold

Bleeding Gold is dropping Thunderegg‘s full-length vinyl debut, Cosmos, recorded by Alan Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Magnolia Electric Co.) in Oakland and featuring the Bay Area lineup (Alex Jimenez, bass; Reese Douglas, guitar; André Custodio, drums). Packaged in a deluxe gatefold and exploding with guitars, Cosmos is the Egg’s deepest plunge yet into space, blending the usual clever lyrics, sweet melodies, and ragged rocking with a layered roar that begs to be blasted.

BG118 | L. VALERIE – Arranged Marriage: “The material collected here in this short release was half written on the fly, half slowly gathered in my subconscious over several weeks at the end of 2017. Last year was quite the adventure in personal growth for me. The cover I created for this release was collaged out of a sewing manual from the 1960s that the generations before me might have put to its intended purpose.. but I named this record in honor of my independence from old ideas, so here’s to a better use.” –L. Valerie

Arranged Marriage‘ is a brief but poignant take on the stumble into adulthood.

What began as a modest lo-fi bedroom project, now after almost a decade in Sick Balloons has blossomed into a full fledged affair, spearheaded by a rotating cast of musician friends, siphoning moments from their full-time bands. Members of Trouble in the Wind, Duchess, and local stalwarts The Tractormen have all been folded into Scott’s nostalgia funded indie meanderings. After various shifts and turns, the band settled in with another amalgamation, coinciding just slightly before the release of the band’s fourth album,telescopes (on) parade,’ the last to feature founding member Glynnis Johns’ contributions on bass.

Post-‘telescopes’, the band acquired another north county multi-instrumentalist and comrade, Jesse Lee (from the Paragraphs), to round out the indefinite open door that is the balloons. Pulling inspiration from indie cult rockers such as Pavement, Guided By Voices and Dinosaur Jr, this fuzz-craving quartet pocket punk-informed pop gems in under three minutes or less, with equal nods to british & american shoegaze rock.

BG117 | Let The Machine Get It

GDOB2-30CH-001.cdr

Let The Machine Get It is a construct of musical ideas collected over and inspired by the varying terrains and unpredictable gear shifts of the last five plus years.  A lyrical knack for exploring darker truths beyond the light and humor in mankind’s darkest moments, Ariel Levine turns his external satirical candor inward.   It’s a conceptual story arc that encompasses the desire for something greater, the fear of losing ones connection to the world by an increasing dependence on technology, and the looming truth that is “wherever you go, there you are”.  LTMGI is set to be the most personally revealing collection of songs in his career to date.

With the gloomy psychedelia of The Growlers, the spaced out vocals of Jesus & Mary Chain and the expansive instrumentation of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dream Joints weave together a patchwork of influences to create a unique sound that stretches from vampiric to blissful. All the while sounding immediate and absolutely vital.

BG110 | Feels

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , on January 24, 2017 by bleedinggold

lp1

Low Points are a quintessentially Southern California band. Mixing the sing along choruses of bands like Weezer with the sugary, DGAF surf fuzz of early WAVVES, Low Points’ debut EP ’Feels’ is bursting with stony slacker punk hooks. Led by songwriter Kevin Vega (Space Heat) and consisting of Jakob McWhinney (Space Heat, Ex-The Soaks, Spooky Cigarette), Frank Mindingall (Ale Mania, Northern Tigers, Spooky Cigarette) and Jeremy Hoover, Low Points are a fresh and honest take on garage pop.

The band balance surf rock rhythms and hard-hitting guitar riffs with deeply personal lyrics dealing with alienation and depression to create a sound that is at once catchy and haunting. Their four song debut, ‘Feels’ bounds from influences like the gritty garage pop of Mike Krol, pseudo emo-revival of Cloud Nothings to the surf punk of Tijuana Panthers, all the while maintaining a unique and memorable voice.

‘Feels’ will be released on March 3rd, 2017 through Field Trips & Bleeding Gold Records.

BG111 | So Much Fun

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , on January 24, 2017 by bleedinggold

title-pic

Dream Joints’ long awaited debut 7” perfectly encapsulates the hauntingly catchy nature of tripped out garage rock aficionado Mike Turi’s (Wild Wild Wets, The Old In Out) solo project. The A side, ‘So Much Fun’ finds him awash in dirty, droney synths. Languid vocals are smeared, dream-like, across the tracks noise pop face. It’s a sound that somehow feels as uplifting as it is foreboding. B side, ‘Dust’, a dirgey, psychedelic tinged dive into a rock and roll wasteland, follows suit. Pairing a hypnotic progression with tinkling, pulsating keys, ‘Dust’ is as much the soundtrack for long drives through the dark empty of desert, as it is for sweaty, gritted teeth nights in packed underground clubs.

With the gloomy psychedelia of The Growlers, the spaced out vocals of Jesus & Mary Chain and the expansive instrumentation of Brian Jonestown MassacreDream Joints weave together a patchwork of influences to create a unique sound that stretches from vampiric to blissful. All the while sounding immediate and absolutely vital.

Dream Joints’ debut 7” So Much Fun / Dust will be released in February, 2017 through Bleeding Gold Records in preparation for the release of full length ‘Just Like Medicine’ in April.

BG107 | Swoon

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , , on October 5, 2016 by bleedinggold

Oh well goodbye - Tom Rees - Colour

Hailing from Liverpool England, Oh Well Goodbye quietly crept into the UK scene with debut cassette release ‘BG092’ through U.S label Bleeding Gold Records. Beginning as a solo project during down time of his ‘dayjob’ band People//Talk, Philip Rourke (founder of EDILS records/booking)  quickly assembled like minded musicians  and played a scattering of shows in London and northern England, as well as a 5 date tour of France in late 2015.  Oh Well Goodbye, completed by Sam Banks (bass), Peter Seddon (Guitar) and Andy Fernihough (Drums) have continued to push creatively as a unit while fully maintaining their Lo-Fi DIY approach. Three new EPs will be released before the end of 2017 and each one presents a progressive step showcasing Oh Well Goodbye’s bittersweet musical movements that border the edge of collapse. Post punk is murky ground but Oh Well Goodbye given their northern English heritage slot in and out easily. A lush mix of early 90’s styled guitars, dance punk beats and hushed, almost spoken vocal ride along effortlessly. As beautiful as it is ugly, the nonchalant display masks the chaos and vulnerability underneath.
The first release of the trilogy is a four track EP entitled  ‘Swoon’. A step up from the home recording of Rourke’s debut effort,  ‘Swoon’ was recorded in a Liverpool studio live by the bands drummer Andy Fernihough.  ‘Swoon’ is available on pink and grey 7” as well as digitally from September 16th through Bleeding Gold Records. The band’s next release quickly follows and will coincide with a European tour in October. A five track cassette entitled ‘Acquiescence’  is a co-release between UK labels Hail Hail and EDILS Records (digitally through Bleeding Gold Records) will be available from October 16th. A more experimental and ambient collection compared to its predecessor, ‘Acquiescence’ sees Oh Well Goodbye use drums loops and keyboards for the first time on half of the tracks while still in touching upon the band’s pop sensibilities and downbeat ‘post-punk’ sound.  This  leads nicely into the final release of the trilogy; ‘I Know, I Know, I Know’ which is a remix EP comprised of tracks from both ‘Swoon’ and ‘Acquiescence’. Hitting the world wide web on November 11th, again through Bleeding Gold Records the digital only release features remixes by a host of acts including Dignan Porch (Faux Discx/Captured Tracks), Gorgeous Bully (Art Is Hard), Moonlit Sailor (Deep Elm) and new comers such as Dayflower and Grave Diggers Union.
