The Unknown & Unheard Show 258! Best Show In Months! Big Names Galore!

Guadalupe Plata - Lorena - Guadalupe Plata (2011)
-          Debut album.
-          Spanish band.
-          Incredibly enjoyable Black Keys/White Stripes feel here.

Black Keys – Run Right Back - El Camino (2011)
-          7th studio album already!
-          Their 5th & 6th albums had a much more polished sound to them, this track gives me some hope for the return of their early rough blues sounds.

Wooden Wand - Scorpion Glow - Briarwood Virgins (2011)
-          Latest single from this James Jackson Toth project's forthcoming album
-          Also released music as WAND after his band left him.
-          He conducted a pretty awesome fundraiser for this album. Check it out here!

Craig Finn – Honolulu Blues – Clear Heart Full Eyes (2012)
-          1st single of The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn’s solo debut. Out next January.
-          This seems to have a looser feel than most of what you get from the Hold Steady.

Okkervil River – Plan D - Golden Opportunities 2 (2011)
-          Free EP just released on their site.
-          These guys are a former best of the U & U top spot holder thanks to their album ‘The Stage Names’
-          Lyric-heavy deeply layered building folk rock.

The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band - Clap Your Hands - The Wages (2010)
-          5th album of 6.
-          From Brown County Indiana.

Scott H. Biram - Victory Song - Bad Ingredients (2011)
-          7th full length.
-          Texas one man band styled artist. I think I’m on a kick.
-          RIYL Seasick Steve,

Poor Boy's Soul - 54 Ways - Burn Down (2011)
-          2nd album
-          Trevor Jones led roots/folk rock that reminds me a bit of The Builders and the Butchers.

The Builders and the Butchers – Black Elevator - Dead Reckoning (2011)
-          3rd album
-          Tense energy can be felt through out their music.
-          Great live band!
-          I forgot about this album after the initial single was released. I apologize!

White Rabbits – Percussion Gun – It’s Frightening (2009)
-          2nd album.
-          Their debut album, had huge hype and acclaim.
-          I like this song better than anything I heard on their debut… promising start for what’s to come on the rest of the album.
-          Playing Radio Radio Dec 2nd

Ty Segall - Son of Sam - Singles 2007-2010 (2011)
-          Latest release. As the name would imply, it’s just a big collection of his recent singles.
-          Ty Segall has almost single-handedly revitalized the fuzzy garage rock genre.
-          Old White Stripes vibes here.

Coves - Let The Sun Go Down On Me Here (Demo) - Coves EP (2011)
-          Debut EP. Free to download from their BandCamp.

Smashing Pumpkins - Soma - Siamese Dream (1993)
-          2nd album.
-          This is the greatest Smashing Pumpkins’ song of all if you ask me.
-          Just did the deluxe re-issue of this and Gish (their debut).

Keaton Henson - Sarah Minor - Dear… (2011)
-          Latest Single from his full length debut.
-          Somber mellow indie folk.

Yellow Ostrich - 'Til I Disappear - The Mistress (2011)
-          Bonus track from their debut full length which has just been re-released with these tracks.
-          Sounds a bit like the Beatles and the White Stripes and even at times Menomena.
-          Very talented vocalist. Uses looping to deeply layer his music.
-          Played SXSW

The National – Mr. November - Alligator (2005)
-          3rd album
-          Latest was High Violet and was one of the best albums of 2010.
-          They also had a hand in the production of the ‘Dark Was The Night’ compilation.
-          This might be my favorite song by them.
