New Track Rundown

Those who have been following Stereo Typing may know that I have been without a proper computer for some time. It now appears that my troublesome computer has finally been fixed. Barring another crash - which would be an inconceivable nightmare - regular posting will once again commence. I would like to celebrate with a carefully curated mixtape from the best tracks that had been circulating the internet during my hiatus. My favorite I have heard over the past month comes from prolific psych-rocker Ty Segall. His newly formed Ty Segall Band includes frequent collaborators Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart, and Emily Rose Epstein. "Wave Goodbye" packs all the fuzz and buzz you can handle and is a great way to kick off this mix. The image above is the awesome album cover for their debut, Slaughterhouse, which is now available to stream in its entirety at Spin. In a similar but noisier vein is Dope Body's "Weird Mirror". Their new record, Natural History, combines punk aggression and noisy rock 'n' roll in the most compelling ways. King Tuff is the latest project from Kyle Thomas, who had previously won me over with his power pop band Happy Birthday. The self-titled record and Sub Pop debut under the King Tuff moniker mixes glam and garage with influences from 50's, 60's, and 70's pop radio. The biggest surprise I've discovered lately would be from Colin Caulfield who performs under the name Young Man. Vol. 1 is full of introspective indie pop songs with thoughtful arrangements. Most songs deal with the tribulations of being twentysomething from an artist who is twentysomething; You can do the math on why I can relate to the album so much. All this and more after the jump along with Boston tour dates.

On the visual side of things, Portugal. The Man have released another epic short film that is quite disturbing (NSFW) and have spliced in a RZA remix for good measure. The Death Set continue their streak of creating some of the more fun and creative music videos. Their latest for "They Come to Get Us" features a Back to the Future inspired intro, acid drenched animation, 8-bit love, and hypersurrealism. It's a hipster's wet dream! Blacklisters take creepy to the next level with the video for their agressive track "Trickfuck". It should go without saying that this one is NSFW. One that is safe would be the creative Slugabed video. I'd love to shake the director's hand and find out how the hell he thought of the intriguing concept.

Wed, 10/31/12 - Royale
