Civic
Those Who No

Aussie new wave/punk band Civic follow up their New Vietnam EP with Those Who No. As with their previous EP, Civic have taken sounds of the past and made them relevant for a new generation. They’ve even recorded their own version of Brian Eno’s Needle In The Camel&rsqu...view item »


Deerhoof
Deerhoof Plays Music Of The Shining

Where did this come from, then? An unexpected if not unprecedented (cf. Xiu Xiu doing Twin Peaks and so on) new two-tracker from indie rock jugglers Deerhoof in which they rather encroach upon Leyland Kirby’s haunted aesthetic playground. Naturally, they do it in their own awkward and ende...view item »


Flat Worms
The Apparition / Melt The Arms

Flat Worms are as close to a garage-rock supergroup as you can get. The LA trio features members of Oh Sees, Dream Boys and Kevin Morby’s band. This single, the first new thing they've done since last year's eponymous LP for Castle Face, was also prod...view item »

Ty Segall
Mr. Face

I don’t need to tell you about Ty Segall and his highly popular, highly energised garage-rock stylings, you probably already know. But what I do need to tell you about is the fact that Mr Face’s two 7”s are pressed on red and blue vinyl respectively, and that if you gaze through them both together, the...view item »


La Luz / Scully
LAMC # 16

The Famous Class Records ‘LAMC’ series, launched in memory of former Famous Class partner Ariel Panero, has already received contributions from artists like Xiu Xiu and A Place To Bury Strangers. Now La Luz and Scully each step up to contribute a sid...view item »


Liars / Tropical Fuck Storm
Total 3 Part Saga / The Happiest Guy Around

A split between Angus Andrews’ big deal experimental post-punk outfit Liars on the A-side, and a band selected by Liars to join them on the B-side: a group called Tropical Fuck Storm (a side-project of The Drones). So exclusive material from Liars ...view item »


Nots
Anxious Trend / In Glass

Having taken in the sedate pastures of Heavenly and Goner, Memphis garage-punks Nots wind up on Famous Class (Future Islands, Ty Segall) with a new 7” single. Both ‘In Glass’ and ‘Anxious Trend’ are fast, paranoid r...view item »


Cass McCombs / White Magic
LAMC No. 6

Okay, fourth of these Famous Class splits up for review today is from Cass McCombs and White Magic. On McCombs’s side, the prolific and consistently decent singer-songwriter doles out a slow-burner called ‘If Y...view item »

Damaged Bug / Black Pus
LAMC No. 17

The LAMC series, now up to its seventeenth release, has a lovely format: one artist provides an exclusive track, and the B-side is filled by a lesser-known act of their first artist’s choosing. In this case Damaged Bug submit a nifty piece of cool sneaky garage and select a track from Black Pus, a...view item »


Deerhoof
I Thought We Were Friends

Deerhoof aren’t ones for resting after releasing an album, no. less than four months after their recent LP The Magic they hit straight away with this two track 7” EP. All recorded on the the road and produced by themselves, It’s their usual joyous selves, catchy, nay, infectious and uplifting indie pop...view item »


Purling Hiss
Something EP

As Purling Hiss, Mike Polizze makes indie fuzz-pop which pushes the ratio between fuzz and pop so far that these 4 tracks are as much texture as song. This is a welcome balance. The Something EP was all recorded at home, with every instrument played by Polizze. This 7” vinyl relea...view item »


Zig Zags
Slime EP

Zig Zags set out their stall fairly effectively with the name of this EP: Slime. That title captures the sleazy, messy, scuzz vibes that their music carries. Hailing from LA, they punk their way through three of their original tracks and a 7 Seconds cover in the space of one 7". Out on the Fa...view item »

Parquet Courts / Future Punx
LAMC No. 13

Entry number thirteen in the LAMC 7" series sees indie slackers Parquet Courts fight the fittingly titled Future Punx. "This Is Happening Now" is what the Courts have to show for themselves -- who take time out of their busy schedule of writing a riff and playing with it all day from the sofa to send down some music. Future Punx respond with "Sp...view item »

Speedy Ortiz / Chris Weisman
LAMC No. 14

This vinyl 7" split is the fourteenth release in the LAMC Series via famous class. Feautring the latest single from Speedy Ortiz, 'Doomsday', which sees frontwoman Sadie Dupuis's usual brillinatly unsettling lyrics atop of the band's rhythmic and distorted guitar sounds.  The tracks will also be available on the Famous Class ba...view item »

Ty Segall / Chad and the Meatbodies
LAMC No. 7

Ty Segall collectors will be happy to get their hands on this latest offering from the mercurial garage tyke - this time he’s sharing seven inches with Chad & The Meatbodies, and his offering is pretty different to his usual fare. His ‘Music For A Film 1’ is a hard grooving instrumental wit...view item »

Thee Oh Sees / The Mallard
LAMC Vol 3

Today’s third split on this Famous Class series is from Thee Oh Sees and The Mallard, so we’re talking a warm Californian retro garage theme here. On Thee Oh Sees’ side there’s a bright psychedelic pop stomp...view item »

Mikal Cronin / WAND
Soul In Motion / Screaming Eye

These Famous Class splits seem to attract some reliably high-calibre artists and this week's contributions are no exception, with Mikal Cronin and Wand sharing this disc and Fuzz and CCR Headcleaner taking the other. Cronin kicks things off then, with 'Soul In Motion' a perfect example of his seemingly effortless slacker pop. There's buzzy guita...view item »

Fuzz / CCR Headcleaner
Till The End Of The Day / Free The Feeks

Here's my second Famous Class split for the day. I just tackled Mikal Cronin/Wand, now it's Fuzz/CCR Headcleaner's turn. The Wand song from the previous 7" actually sounded quite a lot like Fuzz so the transition is quite clean. Ty Segall's '70s rock crew barrel their way through a high octane cover of the ...view item »

Deerhoof / Half Waif
LAMC Vol 4

Next up on this Famous Class split series is Deerhoof and Half Waif. One band I’m very familiar with and one I’ve never heard of. Anyway, the Deerhoof track on here is gold - pummelling, blown-out drumbeats, bass distorted to into a ...view item »

Various
Live At Death By Audio 2012

It’s amazing the kind of things people do. Here, the good people at Famous Class have not only recorded a selection of acts who have taken the stage at the Death By Audio venue in Brooklyn, New York but also pressed them all onto flexi discs and put them all into a most wonderful book. It really has to be seen to be believed. People featur...view item »

Xiu Xiu / Lawrence English
LAMC No. 8

Bit of a departure for the Famous Class 7” series, as they head into more experimental territory with these numbers from Xiu Xiu and Lawrence English. Xiu Xiu’s output lately has more often than not failed to grab me, with his contribution to the split LP w...view item »

Future Islands / Ed Schrader's Music Beat

We’ve got a whole stack of this sweet split single series on Famous Class this week so I’m sitting down to have a listen. First up’s this little celebration of the oft-underestimated Baltimore scene with one track from dusky synthpop sentimentalists ...view item »
