Swimsuit - Demo

Not to be confused with Swimming Trunks, Swimsuit is a Detroit based indie/rock/twee band. A friend sent me this demo and I've been listening to it on repeat for a couple of days now. Perfect two minute pop songs that are both intricate and infectious. From start to finish this demo has an intangible special quality to it that I can't put my finger on. Easily the best new band in Detroit, and seemingly poised to have their careers launched into the indie rock stratosphere.

On tour now, don't miss out on this shit NYC mothafuckas:

Food Pyramid - I

Received this submission a few weeks back. Krautrock out of Minnesota. Astronomical looping electronic units accompanied by progressive instrumentation that will bring you back down within the Earth's atmosphere. Or maybe not. Either way, I is out now on Moon Glyph, with II and III coming out soon.

Junk Culture @ DC9

Caught Tobacco/Dreamend/Junk Culture at DC9 a few weeks back. Junk Culture stole the show, and Tobacco pretty much just DJed his own shit. Lame. Here's a video a friend (Show Me Deals, Show Me Deals) put together from the show. This two-parter includes a large chunk of their set, an interview, and the two of us stoned as shit talking to some crazy woman that lost her keys at the supermarket. Good times.

Tungs - Sleeping

Psych, shoegaze, electronic, post-punk, dream-pop, kraut. Richmond, VA's Tungs touch on virtually every genre on this record, and this is sure to receive heavy rotation with many of you. Easily one of the most promising acts in Richmond right now.
