Music in motion…

One of our listener-voted top five singles of 2013 is now represented by a video, with news of a release date for the full album. The Lees of Memory teased everyone last year with a single that made us weak in the knees. Now “We Are Siamese” is a video, as well as a commercial / promise for the upcoming LP Sisyphus Says, due 9/16 on SideOneDummy and available for preorder.

The ex-Superdrag stalwarts couldn’t pick a better time to show off their chops, as the effects-laden sound itself has returned to vogue, and these cagey professionals can write a tune capable of outshining most of the current crop of coulda-beens. It’s not a Tennessee thing, it’s a professional musician mastery thing. If you weren’t aware of The Lees of Memory’s epic debut, it’s time to catch up.

Follow The Lees of Memory on Facebook, Twitter, and preorder the vinyl on SideOneDummy Records. #toldyouso

DKFM is proud to premiere the music video for “Follow”, Crisis Arm’s first single from Caterwaul.

Dense, impressionistic, and full of cats. Crisis Arm drops their first video for “Follow”, and it’s a pretty perfect fit. Low-fi, DIY, more than a little hazy, and perfectly suited to their sound, Crisis Arm kicks it up a notch to promote the first single from their Caterwaul LP. This track has been in heavy rotation in our studios and on our airwaves since it first hit, so it’s a bit of a joy to see “Follow” in a whole new light. Also, it may compel you to wash your car.

Caterwaul is available now in cassette + mp3 format for a ridiculously low price from Family Time Records. Follow Crisis Arm on Facebook and Twitter. And, as always, hear them on DKFM.

San Francisco’s One Hundred Percent have been kicking around for a little bit, we’d never heard or noted them til we got a note in our inbox. We fell in love with “Lowbar” within the first minute. The first single from their first full-length All Teeth and Nails, and it’ll grab you. We first rolled “Lowbar” out to our listeners October 11, the full album is released November 9 on 20 Sided buy metronidazole cheap online Records, and (having heard the sneak peek) there’s a number of jewels here we can’t wait for you to hear. If there is a dump nearby, these boys will blow the roof off it.

They describe themselves as a “loud-as-Hell” rock band, but we hear everything from Sonic Youth to MBV to U2 to Camper Van Beethoven. This “tidal wave of noise” may just save American rock and roll, ladies and gentlemen. Someone had to do it. And it’s about damn time.

From London via Sydney, Dark Bells are soon to present one of the most anticipated singles of the year in ‘Wildflower’. Borrowing from the shoegaze / psych axis can sometimes sound hacky and derivative. Dark Bells has already put the world on notice they are not to be dismissed so easily. The guitars naturally ring out before charging into the propulsive rhythms, and you know you’ve reached a higher plane. Each layer builds on the one before in a beautiful soup of blissful tone and harmony.

Recently signed to new indie label Tape Club Records, the single is realsed on May 6th as part of Tape Club’s Single Series. If this is how the label launches, expect great things for both Dark Bells and Tape Club Records going forward.
