The U & U Show 330 | Death Wish Mind. Brown Dog Eyes

Willis Earl Beal : Wavering Lines : Nobody Knows (2013)
-          This is a live a cappella version of a track off the forthcoming 2nd album.
-          Debut was lo-fi, unflattering and didn't show off his insanely powerful voice.
-          Big time comparisons to Tom Waits.

King Khan and The Shrines : Darkness : Idle No More (2013)
-          Forthcoming 5th album, out in Sept.
-          First Shrines album since 2008
-          Long time collaborator with Marc Sultan (AKA the BBQ Show)
-          One of my all-time favorite artists. The Supreme Genius of King Khan and His Shrines is one of the greatest albums.

Les Savy Fav : Scout’s Honor : 3/5 (1997)
-          Debut album.
-          Led by comedian, artist, author and crazy person Tim Harrington.
-          Art, punk rock that is reminiscent of the Pixies at times.

Desaparecidos : Te Amo Camila Vallejo : Te Amo Camila Vallejo b/w Underground Man (2013)
-          Latest single from Conor Oberst’s recently reunited punk rock band.
-          Conor Oberst is best known for his band Bright Eyes.

AroarA : #7 : In the Pines (2013)
-          Debut full length. Also an EP of the same name.
-          Side project of Broken Social Scene

Ought : Habit : More Than Any Other Day EP (2013)
-          2nd EP
-          Montreal post-punk rock band.
-          Cool spoken word track.
-          Name your own price for all their music on their bandcamp.

Los Porcos : Sunshine : Sunshine b/w Classical Feminine Woman (2013)
-          The latest single from some of the former members of WU LYF.
-          Former lead singer, Ellery James Roberts, is doing his own solo effort as well.

Cloud Control : Scar : Dream Cave (2013)
-          2nd album
-          Australian band that reminds me a lot of Youth Lagoon with less synth and more of a traditional indie rock sound.

Marnie Stern : This Was It : Adult Swim Singles (2013)
-          New single for Adult Swim's music project.
-          4th album, Chronicles of Marnia was out in early 2013.
-          Her previous album was a 2010 Best of the U & U.
-          A wild mix of the joyous unpredictability of Ponytail and the harder Yeah Yeah Yeahs tracks.
-          The band I'm most excited to see play SXSW 2013 of the announced acts so far.

Pond : O Dharma : Hobo Rocket (2013)
-          5th full length album. First of 2 announced 2013 albums.
-          Features members of Tame Impala.
-          By far the greatest lead singer I saw at SXSW. Young, tiny, wild aussie.

White Denim : Pretty Green : Corsicana Lemonade (2013)
-          6th album.
-          Wild, impulsive, energetic, sometimes jammy rock.
-          They’ve released some absolutely amazing albums.
-          This album is partially recorded with Jeff Tweedy.
-          They’re boasting that this album is their best album representations of their live shows.

The Cairo Gang : Father of the Man : Tiny Rebels EP (2013)
-          Latest release.
-          Previously collaborated with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

John McCauley & Jonny Fritz : Willow Garden : Oxyana OST (2013)
