• NEW RELEASE OF THE WEEK: OFF! FIRST FOUR EPs
We are more than super excited to be the first download store to offer the first full group of songs from the band OFF! Inspired by bands like Black Flag and California punk bands of yore, they are pushing an honest and straightforward dose of punk rock.
The band formed by Keith Morris (Circle Jerks/Black Flag) also features Burning Brides guitarist Dimitri Coats on guitar, Redd Kross bassist Steven Shane Mcdonald and Hot Snakes/Earthless/Rocket From The Crypt drummer Mario Rubalcaba. All of these players bring real skills and the proper attitude to this project. The songs are short bursts of pure energy with no interference or overthinking getting in the way. Find out more info on the physical box set by checking out the blog.
• ARTIST TO WATCH: SHADOW SHADOW SHADE (ONLY $5.99!)
L.A. buzz band Shadow Shadow Shade release their debut album Shadow Shadow Shade on Public Records. It jumps out the gate with “Is This A Tempest In The Shape Of A Bell,” which sounds like Brian Eno fronting early Pink Floyd.
I guess it’s no wonder that this seven-piece band see themselves as a big art project more than a rock group. The members include a producer, an opera singer (you can’t miss her) and various other art type folks. The vocal arrangements are quite startling in their complexity and tonal quality.
I guess the thing that really gets me about this group, is the depth of the music and the vision put into the entire project. From the cover art to individual notes, you can tell they give a shit. They conjure bands like the Mama’s And Papas, Queen, Roxy Music and the already mentioned Pink Floyd. The new album’s on sale for $5.99, which makes it easy to afford. I promise the music is not cheap and it will keep you wondering where these guys have been hiding all these years. – radiofreedavis@thinkindie
