Pink Mountaintops

Pink Mountaintops are back with a new album, Get Back,out today on Jagjaguwar! These guys always produce enjoyable psych-pop that is a more uptempo version of Black Mountain. Pink Mountaintops are the speed addled garage rockers to Black Mountain's stoned out hippies.

Coachella 2014 - Weekend 1

I tend not to do a Coachella recap every year since - A) every blog/magazine/publication does one and B) I am frequently shooting from my phone or far away, so decent photos are hard to come by. However, I am going to this year because there were some excellent bands that I am not seeing much coverage for.

Flume @ Gothic Theater

On April 17 Flume played Denver's Gothic Theater. The show was a microcosm of why Flume is becoming one of the biggest Producers/DJs in the world.

Herzog are a band out of Cleveland. Above is "Mad Men" the first single from their new album, Boys" out May 20th on Exit Stencil Records. Due to the Cleveland connection, everyone wants to compare the band to Cloud Nothings. This is a total disservice to Herzog. Cloud Nothings never wrote a fuzz pop song this catchy. Herzog remind me of bands like the Soft Pack or early Japandroids. "Mad Men" is so sugary that I have a cavity, but it is one of the best slacker pop songs of the new year.
