U & U Show 366 | New HGM & Frightened Rabbit Solo LP

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats : Look It Here (2013)
-          Only one of two songs official out so far from this soul rock side project.
-          His previous work was much more mellow folk.
-          Brilliant live performer with either of his bands.

Owl John : Red Hand : Owl John (2014)
-          Debut solo album from Frightened Rabbit’s lead singer, Scott Hutchison.
-          Sounds like Frightened Rabbit + Oasis

Hiss Golden Messenger : Saturday’s Song : Lateness of Dancers (2014)
-          Just announced 4th album that sounds more polished than anything else they’ve done.
-          3rd album, Bad Debt, was their latest and most stripped back, almost demo quality, warm tracks.
-          ‘Jesus Shot Me In the Head’ is their highlight track to date.

Hyde & Beast : Keep Moving : Keep Moving
-       2nd album
-       Fuzzed out blend ‘Spirit in the Sky’ & Matthew E White gospel folk rock.
-       Spin-off of the band the Futureheads.

Howard Ivans : Pillow : Red Face Boy b/w Pillows (2013)
-          Debut single.
-          Sexier sounding version of folk on Matthew E. White’s label, Spacebomb.

Dune Rats : Blind : Dune Rats (2014)
-       Debut full length
-       3 EPs out as well.
-       Sloppy garage, REM-leaning act starting to carve out a name for themselves in a similar way as FIDLAR.
-       Tied for best act of CMJ 2012 with the Grizzled Mighty

Team Spirit : Teenage Heart : Killing Time (2014)
-          Forthcoming debut.
-          1 EP out in 2012 as well.
-          ‘Fuck the Beach’ is their best track so far.
-          Loud rowdy power pop spin-off of the band Passion Pit

Vacation Club : Bus Driver : Heaven Is Too High EP (2014)
-       Rough, but poppy garage rock.
-       Indianaplois band.

Jack White : Entitlement : Lazaretto (2014)
-        2nd solo album out June 9
-       Bringing more of the older, more aggressive style White Stripes' fans were used to.
-       Hi solo debut, 2012's Blunberbuss was a much slower, folkier album.

Woods : Leaves Like Glass : With Light and With Love (2014)
-          7th album.
-          By far my favorite song from Woods.
-          Brooklyn folk band.

River Beats : Sugar Pop : River Beats (2014)
-          Debut album
-          Lazy and unpolished pop rock.
-          RIYL Mac DeMarco or T. Rex

The Antlers : Palace : Familiars (2014)
-       5th full length. Set for a July 16th release.
-       Mellow, slow-burning, Brooklyn indie rock band.
-       Came to prominence in the indie world with the song ‘Two’ on their 3rd album ‘Hospice’ out in 2009.

tUnE-yArDs : Powa : Whokill (2011)
-       2nd album of 3.
-       Their latest, Nicki Nack, isn’t slightly dancier and a more filled out sound.
-       Led by the extremely and uniquely talented Merrill Garbus.
