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 endearing style.

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 and a band called Tropical Fuck Storm: I really think that should be enough to want to hear this split 7” right? Out on Famous Class

Civic
Those Who No

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 produced by Ty Segall. So what do ‘The Apparition’ and ‘Melt The Arms’ sound like? Well, like all of the above.

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, they act like 3D glasses for the artwork! Actual wow!

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 rockers that are given extra grit by the fact that they sound like they were recorded down the phone.

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, aka hypermagic drummer Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt! A quality 7” whichever side you look at it. On Famous Class.

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 rock.

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 release is issued by the Famous Class label.

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 Famous Class label.

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 "Spike Train".
