The Lovely Sparrows return with Billboard premiere!

The Lovely Sparrows, the longtime Austin area project of Shawn Jones, have made their return from a seven year hiatus from the pop music world to bring you this video for “A Light,” which just premiered on Billboard today! The video is done by Fantagraphics artist, Derek Van Gieson, and features in depth stylized animation of a character living in a post-apocalyptic world on a quest. Musically, “A Light” is soft indie rock, with frenetic riffs and a feeling of constant motion; kind of like a swirling undercurrent that pulls you in and holds you under. Take a peek at the video below and get excited for The Lovely Sparrows first LP in 7 years, Shake The Shadow, which will be out this Friday on Abandoned Love Records.

Dire Wolves share stream of 'Paradisiacal Mind' ahead of its Nov 9 release

San Francisco’s Dire Wolves are celebrating the release of their new album, Paradisiacal Mind, tonight in their hometown, and they’ve shared with the world their whole trippy album in full ahead of its official Friday release over with the lovely folks at Treble. Treble had some nice words to say about the release:

“It’s a spacey, cosmic and spiritual set of psychedelic sounds, combining influences from krautrock, spiritual jazz, prog and more avant garde musical realms—at times sounding like Pharoah Sanders jamming with Ash Ra Tempel. It’s quite a trip, perhaps the sort of thing that’s necessary to give a spin during the chaos of a national election. It’s a weird and wonderful set of sounds from a band that’s always headed toward some new and unfamiliar realm”

Head over to Treble to stream the album and then pick up your copy over here.

ATX’s Coattails will be releasing their new EP shortly on November 9. From that Imaginary Friends EP, they’ve shared a new video for “Clocks & Knives.” This track is an alt-rock lullaby of sorts, and the video runs with the theme of the title of the EP. Striking electric guitar rings out and echoes through the whole duration of the song, meanwhile the vocals are bright and in the front of the mix, making for a solid rock track with sentimental notes.
