VIDEO: Summer Darling – The Author


MP3: Summer Darling – The Author

There is to no end how much I love and adore Summer Darling. Not only have they been great friends but they consistently put out amazing tunes and now an amazing video for their track “The Author.”

The band based right here in Southern California recently released their sophomore album thanks to Origami Music – the label end of the fabulous record store Origami Vinyl in Echo Park.

The pensive and brooding track is perfectly paired with the visuals in the video – which oddly made me realize that I hadn’t shaved my legs in about two weeks. Thanks for the inspiration to finally break out the Venus Heather and Ben!

Watch the video for “The Author” below and pick up their amazing new album FOR FREE right here.

Crocodiles Offer Up Free EP: Fires Of Comparison

FREE EP DOWNLOAD – FIRES OF COMPARISON EP
MP3: CROCODILES – SLEEP FOREVER
MP3: CROCOCILES – I WANNA KILL

Crocodiles recently held up residency at The Echo for a two week stint supporting Fol Chen. The San Diego natives have had a long and bouncy road but now a 5 pieces fleshed out with drums, bass, and keys Crocodiles seem poised to be going places. FINALLY.

At first glance their sound is very reminiscent of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club while the vocals – unapologetic and raw evoke that of Sid Vicious of The Sex Pistols. Their fuzz drenched tunes made for a sound guys worst nightmare in The Echo but you could hear something special in the treble laden mix.

Crocodiles recently offered up an entire EP Fires of Comparison for free download. Not their usual melodic fair but a nice ambient companion to their sophomore album – Sleep Forever which will be out next week on Fat Possum.

Crocodiles will be heading out on tour this fall including dates in the UK and US dates with Golden Triangle and Dirty Beaches. Highly recommend checking the out when they come through your area.

Help The Monolators Release Their Next Record!

The Monolators at The Echo. Yep. That’s me!

Full disclosure: Most of you know by now that I play bass in a fabulous band here in Los Angeles called The Monolators. We recently recorded a new 4 song EP called Silver Cities with producer Luke Ehret. We’ve decided to put it out as a 12″ DOUBLE EP combined with our last EP “Ruby I’m Changing My Number.” You can listen to the title track of the record below:
The Monolators – Silver Cities by rockinsider

Simple truth is manufacturing records – ESPECIALLY vinyl is expensive. The Monolators have been putting out vinyl, paying entirely out of pocket, for years. No label support, no rich parents, just hardwork and the payoff when a fan buys a record at a show. We do it for you guys.

We want to share our newest release with you guys and in order to do that we have to raise $1600 in production costs for the vinyl. To help with costs we’ve set up a Kickstarter page where you can pledge $$ to help us meet our goal. With your pledge you get rewarded tons of great stuff like a free copy of the record when it comes out, a cover song dedicated just for you, and we even have for a $150 pledge Mary will make you a custom pillow out of fur from their dog Taj.

We only have 11 days left to go and are only $450 away from our goal.

VIP: If the goal is not met by September 15th the project doesnt get funded and everyone who donated will get there money back. We’d hate for that to happen!

So please donate what you can and continue to support your local music scene!

Video: Magic Kids – Superball

I have been thoroughly obsessed by Magic Kids new album “Memphis” which finally came out this week on True Panther. Why  don’t bands make this kind of joyful-as-fuck pop anymore? Perhaps it’s because Magic Kids are the only band I’ve seen in a long time who can actually pull it off and make it still look OH SO COOL.

The most bubblegum of which is the track “Superball” which the band released a video for this week. You can watch the simple performance video below. What can I say – the song speaks for itself. I dare you not to smile while watching it.

Magic Kids will be playing FYF Fest next week at LA Historic State Park. They play early so get there on time!

Purchase “Memphis” right here

Kylie Minogue On America’s Got Talent

I don’t think I’ve ever admitted to this publicly but Kylie Minogue is hands down my favorite pop star. Lady Gaga doesnt have anything on her and Kylie’s been doing this for OVER 20 YEARS!

Last night Kylie premiered her new single “Get Outta My Way” on America’s Got Talent.

SOLID SOLID SOLID SINGLE AND ALL I CAN SAY IS GOD I HOPE I LOOK LIKE THAT AT 42!

Shameless Plug: Slow Animal 7 Inch Going Fast

MP3: Slow Animal – theFUNsun

I don’t normally use this website as a forum to hawk my own wares but I would feel absolutely horrible if I didn’t let you know that we only have about 80 copies of Slow Animal‘s debut 7 inch “TheFUNsun” left in the JAXART Records Store. Since we don’t repress once they’re gone – they’re TOTES GONE.

You can order the 7 Inch in the JAXART Records Online Store. If you buy more than 1 piece of vinyl you get steep discounts on shipping. WHy not buy that Henry Clay People or Mezzanine Owls 7 Inch you’ve been meaning to pick up forever?

ORDER 7 INCH NOW

New Tunes For Your Mid Week Blahs: Sharon Van Etten, Games, Cee-Lo

Hi folks,

Not a whole lot of time to chat today but I wanted to share a few tracks with you today that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

Check em out below.

MP3: GAMES – Planet Party

Games -  new project of Joel from Tiger City. Pitchfork recently did a “Rising” feature on them. 80s inspired electro with chillwave beats. Actually is really fucking good if you ask me.

——————————————-

MP3: Sharon Van Etten – Love More

my latest singer songwriter obsession. Sharon Van Etten‘s voice is dark and smoky. Completely full of character. She is very quickly gaining on Neko Case to take over as my #1 mad girl crush and that’s insanely tough to compete against. For god’s sake it’s NEKO CASE people

——————————————-



VIDEO: Cee-lo Green – Fuck You

This track is a bonafide Fucking hit. I fucking love a good excuse to cuss like a muther fucking sailor and Cee lo green does it with more style and charisma then anyone else.
