A little PJ Harvey, a little Frankie Rose. And I’m on my first listen and I already can’t get enough. Listen here. (via fuckinrecordreviews)

BEST REASON TO WRITE A FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEW TODAY!

NUMB BATS Gentle Horror  (self-released DL - 2014)✩

Drums/gtr/bass trio of bad seed sin from the state of 2008 presidential loser John McCain, who some might recall landing a spot on our ✩BEST REASONS TO WRITE FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEWS 2013✩ list as one half of the split cassette with Petty Things: Numb Bats that is, not John McCain, silly. Their two songs on that Rubber Brother spinner – “Angry Woman” and “Dr. Five” – were deliriously crude mess arounds rendered in agava syrup lipstick. That’s to say, weirdly great cave harmonizing somewhere between Los Cripis and Girl Trouble. 

And this? It just fuckin’ rules. While a dark psych singe characterizes the Numb Bats template, every slice is delirious fodder for songster fools. The strength of their desert surf psalms is potent and so much tastier than much of what gets passed off as good burgers in 2014. Has no label stepped up to release Gentle Horror on vinyl? That’s just not right.

Amid all the perfect amounts of Radiohead in the I Origins movie there’s a song that reminds me so much of Au Revoir Simone’s sound. I’m not sure who really sang it so I’m just going to concentrate on listening to as much Au Revoir Simone as possible.

Feels so good to reignite my like of Jenny Lewis. She’s got something special going on and I can see and feel it. (Just like when I saw her perform at Vassar in 2004. She mesmerized me.)

Welcome back to my heart, Jeff Tweedy! “Summer Noon” is love at first listen for me. (This bonus track is winning, too.)
