This week’s Monday Morning Tape… moody indie rock from Brooklyn, footstomps and handclaps from Portland, a couple good bummer songs, and a great cover by Phosphorescent.
Big Thief – Paul
Big Thief are a four-piece lo-fi indie rock band from Brooklyn.
They sound just unique and weird enough to be cool amongst the hipster crowd, but catchy enough for the Starbuckians too.
In other words, they’re probably going to be a big deal very soon.
Their boldly-titled debut album, Masterpiece, was released three days ago.
Quiet Life – Time Until
Just a friendly reminder – Foggy is a very good record.
Cass McCombs – Opposite House
Hey man, wanna get super bummed-out but also have a little bit of groove to go along with the unrelenting sadness?
Cass McCombs has just the recipe.
His new album, Mangy Love, is due out August 26th.
The Archer & the Bull – Working for the Moon Man
Here’s something catchy and hazy and hypnotic — great for laying around outside somewhere on a hot hot day.
Phosphorescent – I Want You (Bob Dylan cover)
Let’s finish with Matthew Houck covering this one “Dylan” fella.
Until next week, cheers…
And don’t forget to vote John Miller for president!
