    Ty Segall

    The new self-titled record-the next record after Emotional Mugger, Manipulator, Sleeper, Twins, Goodbye Bread, Melted, Lemons, and the first self-titled album that started it up in the now distant year of 2008-is a clean flow, a wash of transparency falling into a world that needs to see a few things through clearly, to their logical end. It's got some of the most lobe-blasting neckwork since the Ty Segall Band's Slaughterhouse (from way back in the long, hot summer of 2012), but it also features a steep flight of fluent acoustic settings, as Ty's new songs range around in their search for freedom without exorcism, flying the dark colors high up the pole in an act of simple self-reclamation. All he wants is some truth!


    The construction and destruction of his chosen realities have, until now, been a luxury Ty has rightfully reserved for himself, stripping overdubs together to form the sound-but for this new album, he entered a studio backed by a full band-Emmett Kelly, Mikal Cronin, Charles Moothart and Ben Boye-to get a read on this so-called clarity. This leads to a new departure in group sound, as well as some of the most visceral and penetrating vocal passages yet heard from Ty Segall.


    "Freedom/Warm Hands" puts the "sweet" back into suite; "Orange Color Queen" is a supreme moment of tenderness; "Talkin'," a roots-infused truth-attack. "Papers," looks behind the doors of Ty's process; "Break A Guitar" is a brutal fun-fest pitched to the back of the house. Ty Segall keeps you guessing, bracing your skin with a welcome astringency, seeking to stem the bleeding with chunks and splashes of guitar, tight beats, audio-veritÉ toilet smashes, a Wurlitzer electric piano in a jam, blazing harmonies, and LOTS of songs to sing. There's no concept beyond that; finding the right places to be is a momentary thing. Ty Segall is the sum of his songs-and about getting the free. The free to be!

    White Reaper


    180-Gram Clear Pink 12" Vinyl EP


    From the increasingly fertile DIY scene of Louisville,
    KY, White Reaper - formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/
    guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam
    Wilkerson (bass) -- combines sparkling hooks and
    fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged
    garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing
    an ounce of sonic bite.


    The group is ready to unleash their eponymous debut
    EP -- a six-song blitzkrieg that traces the band's
    present and future. This self-titled release is available
    on clear pink vinyl.


    While dingy and jangly single "Conspirator"
    scratches the itch left behind by Jay Reatard,
    infectious stand outs "Cool" and "Funn" will
    undoubtedly make the ears of the Ty Segall/oh Sees
    sect perk up.

    Fried Shallots

    In order to survive this long hot season of discontent, you gotta have something new to turn up and tune into! It's vital to chew down on stuff that's not just all negativity, you know? If you wanna stay positive, throw Ty Segall's Fried Shallots into your brain pan and flame on for a quick snack.


    Fried Shallots is a handful of numbers from different times and places over the past few years that all work together in a weird way. That's something that we should all be striving for: all working together in a weird way. For Ty, that requires rock with the gears shifting and stripping, tempos and tropes mashing up; a primal outburst, a quick-and-fuzzy soundtrack of rock, folk, r'n'b and pure power pop, to give us a chance to chill and do the new century twist for just a minute. That's good, for in twist we trust!


    Fried Shallots isn't simply just good fun. The profits from this release will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, whose defense of our rights is badly needed now - especially in the face of the government pigs who don't care about the constitution and are determined to thin our herd so that they and their corporate sugar-daddys can grow ever fatter off the deprivations of the common man-clan! Don't you let 'em do it! Organizations like the ACLU help secure freedoms that allow individuals to stay individual in the face of the choking tides of oppression. Ty Segall's Fried Shallots is here to help us surf those tides and not be swept under.

    Introducing

    As ringleader of great bands The Memories and White Fang, not to mention penning the "Burger TV" theme song for Burger Records, Free Weed (Rikky Gage) has built a sizable indie following that continues to veer mainstream. With Introducing, he is now positioned as ambassador of the legalize-it movement, having crafted a hit-repeat player that splices the freak power illumination of Ween with the catchy spirit of Loser-era Beck. Just look at his face...


    The album is themed around Free Weed''s love of marijuana and his digitally well-documented bacchanal lifestyle. No twigs, no seeds to be had, Introducing is all killer, no filler, never sputtering into stoner novelty. This is an album to boost your happiness and lower your inhibitions. The album's pedigree extends to being mastered by Mikey Young, member of requisite Aussie outfit Total Control, with cover art by ever-talented Dustyn Peterman of San Diego art collective Mushroom Necklace (Ty Segall; Thee Oh Sees).

    MC II

    Mikal Cronin's self-titled debut from 2011 was all about endings:
    the end of college, the end of a serious relationship, and the end
    of his time in Los Angeles, where he grew up. So it's no surprise
    that his sophomore release MCII-and first disc for
    Merge Records-is all about new beginnings.


    Recorded in late 2012 by Eric Bauer at Bauer Mansion in San
    Francisco (except for "Don't Let Me Go" which was recorded by
    Cronin at home), MCII includes guest appearances by K. Dylan
    Edrich (viola and violin on "Peace of Mind" and "Change"),
    Charles Moothart (drums on "Change" and "Turn Away"), Ty
    Segall (guitar solos on "Am I Wrong" and "I'm Done
    Running from You"), and Petey Dammit (slide guitar on "Peace
    of Mind").


    Other than these few exceptions, Cronin played all of the
    instruments. "It all makes total sense to me, but when I step
    back, it sounds kind of schizophrenic," Cronin says. "Hopefully
    it all sounds enough like me to make sense."

    Melbourne

    It's the original rock n' roll fantasy: to be genius, aloof, deserving. To be instantaneously swept from the wings of obscurity into the arms of acclaim. Well, that's what I've heard at least.


    But who does this really happen to? Most successful musicians will tell you it's not enough to make brilliant music. You've got to work it constantly, clawing and hustling to get people to the next show, to finance the next record. How pedestrian. How droll. Why can't it just happen?


    No, it would seem there are no rock n' roll fairytales anymore. Or are there?


    Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jackson Scott, indie's newest prince charming. At the tender age of 20, Scott is already receiving more attention for his forthcoming debut, Melbourne than many musicians get in a lifetime.


    When an artist blows up this quickly it's hard to hear their music from an unbiased position. Questions unfailingly arise: What's the deal? Is he really that f-in' good? Did Daddy pay the promo man (remember The Strokes)? Is this guy for real?


    So, before we go on, let me just say, this record is good. Like, really good. Like, "I'm kinda freaked out that a kid who's been making music for a year did this by himself on a 4-track" good.


    So, let's ignore the hype for a while.


    First, the strength of Scott's songwriting is undeniable. Yea, there are some instrumentals here... but overall these songs stick with you. They have power, and with most of them clocking in at around the two minute mark, you won't get bored. Lyrically, Scott both flirts with and repudiates the kind of adolescent moodiness associated with the mopey 90's. Conversely, his musings also betray a connection to the well-fed and perpetually distracted iPhone generation.


    Melbourne also offers plenty of rewards in its production. Scott has the hissy, tape, psych-pop thing down. He's experimental where he needs to be and hooky where it counts. These homespun recordings sound like early Ty Segall as produced by The Elephant 6 Recording Co. While Scott acknowledges Segall as an influence, he claims ignorance of the famed recording collective. That said, his misanthropic use of sped-up vocals suggests otherwise.


    Melbourne opens with "Only Eternal", a wash of ambient guitar. This brooding intro slyly transitions into "Evie", with its sludgy, driving rhythm, Twilight Zone guitar hooks, and wavering harmonies. Peppy and short, "Sandy" is a druggy acoustic-pop highlight.


    "That Awful Sound" is the song that gained Scott so much attention in the first place. Nothing if not a solid single, its strummed acoustics, booming rhythm, and pseudo-Chipmunk vocals are impossible to hear without thinking of Elephant 6. It's not surprising that the crew at Pitchfork (no doubt approaching middle age and feeling a little nostalgic) picked this track to be "the song". This kind of thing ruled all hell in 1998. If not the best track on the record, it is at least the most classifiable, and by extension the most marketable.


    "Any Way"... is the high-water mark for Scott's pitch-shifted vocals. It's the kind of song Jackson Scott really sells. It's quick, melody driven, and vaguely flippant. With its toy marimba solo, it also exposes the childlike undercurrent running throughout this record.


    "Together Forever" is one of my favorite songs on Melbourne. If you listen closely you can hear the famous background vocals from "Where is My Mind?" at the beginning. To me this is Jackson Scott playing it straight. His voice sounds like a real person and his noisy guitar swells are just as mind-bending as anything coming out of the current psych-revival.


    "In The Sun" is reminiscent of the late Scott Miller's more stripped-down moments with Game Theory. The song's chorus reminds us of how much an inspiration Kurt Cobain is to Scott.


    Notwithstanding the strength, charisma, and raw talent exhibited on Melbourne, it feels like Jackson Scott has skipped a few levels. Although Cinderella sometimes does well in sports and American Idol, Jackson Scott is going for something much weightier, much deeper. Dare we call it, legitimacy?

    Ty Segall goes all the way, flipping the Freedom coin to find passion, laughter and savagery on both sides. A head-spinning compendium of stompers, weepers, ballads, screamers, bangers and funker-uppers, all marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of life and loathing and the pursuit of what you love.

    THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. And it's fully loaded, with
    everything that TY SEGALL (and you and me) are gonna
    need in the world to come. Heads up! It's coming down fast.


    Sticking his hand deeper into the machines all around
    him, TY is reaching ever further to the outer limits of inner
    space orbited throughout TWINS and SLEEPER. And
    now more than ever, the chunks of the world that came
    before are like asteroids formed in his image . . . picking up
    speed . . . .


    Still fighting the power with all the energy that a determined
    mind-patriot can conjure, Ty's a fighter who loves, a
    surfer, a spaceman, and yeah, a casualty - like you, he'll
    never be free. But unlike you, he knows it - and when
    he goes down and his head cracks in two, out pour the
    multi-colored manias that make up MANIPULATOR. Soursweet
    declarations featuring freaks and creeps alike: "The
    Singer," "The Faker," "Mister Main," "Susie Thumb," the
    "Connection Man," and "The Crawler," to name but a mutant
    fistful.


    To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions,
    TY kept working, kept writing, laying down more
    tracks than ever. New musical expressions pop and surprise
    relentlessly throughout all the knockout tunes of
    MANIPULATOR with many sounds in the mix - but most
    of all, SO many guitars! So
    many. And different kinds of
    strings - the strangled-neck
    solo of "The Singer," recalling
    the good old days down by
    the river with Neil. Numbedand-
    unplugged discursions spiraling away from the funk
    on "Mister Main." Three-quarter quartets raising their din
    in a few key places. Waves of sparkling acoustics with
    ominous, Love-ly undertones - and then, torrents of filthy
    git-grunge, exploding into the chorus, washing everything
    away, fusing the blackness of SABBATH with the grime and
    grab-ass of the STOOGES and the sweet swinging tones of
    the STONES. All in the name of getting higher on the music.
    Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the
    same space? There's so little time, and a LOT to say.


    In order to ensure that he got it all out, TY called a few
    friends to fill in special parts on certain MANIPULATOR
    songs. He got great touches from CHRIS WOODHOUSE (piano,
    synth & percussion), SEAN PAUL PRESLEY (vocals), BRIT
    LAUREN MANOR (vocals), STEVE NUTTING (drums), IRENE
    SALZER (violin), JESSICA IVRY (cello), MATTHIAS MCENTIRE
    (viola) and the TY SEGALL band (MIKAL CRONIN, CHARLES
    MOOTHEART, EMILY ROSE EPSTEIN). Plus, MIKAL arranged
    the strings - and everyone played awesomely.


    The clarion call / siren song of his guitar . . . . clouds of
    guitar billowing, blood rushing to the head, the temperature
    going from blue to red . . . . TY's on a mission, working
    to change chemistry through music with the steam-lined
    pop and helium-cooled vocals of MANIPULATOR. These
    seventeen songs take many forms, as if TY is finally releasing
    all the thoughts that have been holding him down,
    that made him pick up the ax to begin with. By the end of
    MANIPULATOR, you'll feel that he must have chased all the
    demons - but it's a big world, and MANIPULATOR has only
    begun to fight.

    Director

    Clear Vinyl


    Master guitarist, Yonatan Gat (Monotonix) is back with 11 new punk inspired, improvisational, psychedelic mind melters. Recorded live by Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees) in less than 3 days during a US tour, the band went into the studio with just a few songs and ideas. The goal was to capture the riotous and intricate improvisations of the band's live show. Inspired by soundtrack virtuosos like Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, Director is edited as a cinematic circular journey around the world, East to West and North to South. This journey is interconnected by field recordings that Gat has taken during his travels, giving it a feeling of space and time. The result is a genre-bending opus that finds the band seamlessly exploring different styles of music from Brazilian psych and Afrobeat to free jazz, surf and 20th century avant-garde, sometimes in the span of just one song. Gat's wildly inventive, reverb-drenched guitar offensive takes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.

    Weirdo Shrine

    For most, a brush with death would be cause for retreat, reflection, and reluctance, but Seattle band La Luz found something different in it: resilience. Having survived a high-speed highway collision shortly after releasing their 2013 debut LP It's Alive, La Luz, despite lasting trauma, returned to touring with a frequency and tirelessness that put their peers to shame. Over the past year-and-a-half of performing, the band arrived at a greater awareness of their music's ability to whip eager crowds into a frenzy. In response, frontwoman Shana Cleveland's guitar solos took on a more unhinged quality. The basslines (from newly-installed member Lena Simon) became more lithe and elastic. Stage-dives and crowd-surfing grew to be as indelible a part of the La Luz live experience as their onstage doo-wop-indebted dance moves. When it came time to record Weirdo Shrine, their second album-due out August 7th-the goal was to capture the band's restless live energy and commit it to tape. In early 2015, Cleveland and Co. adjourned to a surf shop in San Dimas, California where, with the help of producer/engineer Ty Segall, they realized this vision. Tracking most of the album live in shared quarters, La Luz chose to leave in any happy accidents and spur-of-the-moment flourishes that occurred while recording. Cleveland's newly fuzzed-up guitar solos-which now incorporated the influence of Japanese Eleki players in addition to the twang of American surf and country-were juxtaposed against the group's most angelic four-part harmonies to date. The organs of Alice Sandahl and the drumming of Marian Li Pino were granted extra heft and dimension. Thematically, Cleveland channeled Washingtonian poet Richard Brautigan on "You Disappear" and "Oranges," and sought inspiration from Charles Burns' Seattle-set graphic novel Black Hole. The resulting album is a natural evolution of the band's self-styled "surf noir" sound-a rawer, turbo-charged sequel that charts themes of loneliness, infatuation, obsession and death across eleven tracks, from the opening credits siren song of "Sleep Till They Die" to the widescreen, receding-skyline send-off of "Oranges" and its bittersweet epilogue, "True Love Knows." In describing Weirdo Shrine, Segall remarked that it gave him a vision of a "world burning with colors [he'd] never seen, like mauve that is living." In "Oranges," the Brautigan poem which inspired the aforementioned track of the same name, the poet writes of a surreal "orange wind / that glows from your footsteps." These hue-based allusions are apt: the sound of La Luz is (appropriately) vibrant, and alive with a kaleidoscopic passion. Weirdo Shrine finds them at their most saturated and cinematic.

    Butter Knife


    Limited First Edition LP Pressed On Translucent Gold Vinyl


    LP Comes With 18x24 Insert / Poster


    After nine years of existence, Fullerton's Audacity has left the garage of their
    humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn't left the spirit of their
    music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their
    belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their
    razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough
    to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff
    and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).
    And while you could hear the band pushing at the boundaries on their prior
    releases-a nod to Descendents melodic hardcore here, a dash of
    Replacements' bar-band irtations there-Audacity seems less interested in
    showing a broad swath of inuences as they are in delivering the craftiest
    hooks and sweatiest live show possible.


    Audacity's latest full-length Butter Knife is still, at its core, a garage rock
    record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle,
    pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to
    the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn't sound so
    much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to
    make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible. Album opener "Couldn't
    Hold A Candle" is a perfect introduction to Audacity's battle plan-a
    balanced blend of pop sensibility and ribald power. "Hole In The Sky"
    showcases the band's gift for the on-the-dime changes, sophisticated
    melodies, and clever instrumental interplay. "Red Wine" demonstrates a
    Robert Pollard-like knack for turning an unexpected chord combination into a
    remarkably punchy chorus. And album closer "Autumn" harkens back to the
    balladry of power pop kings Big Star. All of which is to say, Audacity are
    tighter and more clever than your average suburban band, and consequently

    Black Moon Spell

    King Tuff's new record is called Black Moon Spell.


    It was produced and recorded by Bobby Harlow at Studio B in Los Angeles, California,
    in the hot winter of 2014.


    No one involved was prepared to make a record, but an invisible hand pushed them
    to do it. Perhaps it was God or that special someone we all know and love called The
    Devil.


    God and The Devil actually have very similar interests. They both love electric guitars
    and they both want you to listen to Black Moon Spell and freak the fuck out.


    There were many strange occurrences during the recording session- Dracula landlords,
    flashes of mysterious light, haunted microphones, songs that mixed themselves,
    demonic vortexes swirling in coffee cups, etc.


    Under the Black Moon Spell you may experience euphoria, demented visions, wet
    dreams, bouts of backwards laughter, and dazed confusion resulting in primordial
    dancing.


    Fire played a very important role in the making of this album. King Tuff loves fire.
    For some reason, no one can really explain how the Black Moon Spell came to be.
    It just appeared one day and demanded heavy rock music and meatball subs.
    Backwards messages may be found on this record.


    Los Angeles, full of its screaming coyotes and creeping helicopters, surely slathered
    its sexy, twisted, hairy, polluted spirit all over Black Moon Spell. The Sunset Strip
    shat itself when it heard all these guitar solos.


    Can you feel the Black Moon Spell creeping up the back of yr neck yet?


    King Tuff would prefer not to tell you the full story of making this record because
    its long and crazy and you wouldn't believe him anyway. Also, I am King Tuff.


    Magic Jake, who played bass and is beautiful like sunshine, would like to take this
    moment to give you a hug and invite you to a tanning party on a beach of your choice.


    Old Gary, who plays drums and has the most glorious cackle, would like to take this
    moment to crack a cold one with you and invite you to watch the old ballgame with
    him.


    Old Gary was out watching the old ballgame, so a wild critter named Ty Segall played
    drums on the song "Black Moon Spell". Ty enjoys speaking in a goblin voice in his
    spare time.


    Night fell on Studio B. A Tarot card leapt from the deck and said, "No human
    judgement is of any value here." King Tuff agreed.


    Sub Pop first discovered King Tuff curled up in his palace in Vermont. It was basically
    a shit hut made of moss, mud, and glimmering stones hidden near the graveyard,
    and it was guarded by beautiful wild bullfrogs with silver fangs and baseball bats.


    Punx, Squares, Skaters, Farmers, Bartenders, Grandparents, Stoners, Carpenters,
    Hobos, Heshers, Babes, Babies, Plumbers, Strippers, Art Teachers, Teenagers, Townies,
    Moms, Dads, Truck Drivers, and Witches will all love this record.


    Every song on Black Moon Spell was written without giving a shining fuck about
    nothing.


    Listen to Black Moon Spell, turn yr volume knob up to 666, put yr lover in a 69,
    and let yr inner grinagog rear it's wicked, unwashed, smiling snake head.


    Listen to Black Moon Spell and give yr ears what they've been begging for all year;
    a heavily weird, heavenly dark, hysterically magical Rock & Roll Sexperience.


    ps. the only part of this story that isn't true is the part about the shit hut. I actually
    was living at my parents' house when I was discovered. Love, KT

    Think music ain't what it used to be? Then you haven't heard Nick Waterhouse. His jumped-up take on 1950's rhythm 'n' blues is the real deal."
    - GQ


    A timeless talent for spirited rock and rhythms that anyone can appreciate.
    He draws from the classic sound of '50's American pop with a distinctive
    voice of his own, shouting and growling with infectious vigor."
    - NPR


    Waterhouse is definitely a star."
    - LA TIMES


    The music sounds like a party in full swing, each instrument playing exactly what is needed."
    - CHICAGO TRIBUNE


    Between the chattering keys, bomping saxes, gorgeous guitar tones and
    the bandleader's voice-which slides effortlessly from cool quaver to feral
    howl - the end result is undeniable."
    - SPIN


    Nick Waterhouse's art springs from a simple idea: everybody wants to be sombody else. One of his heroes, Van Morrison, got his start covering Bobby
    Bland, whose own musical idol was Nat "King" Cole. In Waterhouse's view,
    emulation is a journey; you never truly succeed, but as the singer, guitarist and songwriter puts it, "You become something on the way there."


    Nick was born in 1986 and grew up in Huntington Beach, known predominantly for
    UFC, commercial surf culture, and tanning salons. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning southern California Psych-Garage scene (Burger
    records, Ty Segall, McHugh's Distillery studio) while retaining his unique perspective
    on the spirit of American Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll.


    Waterhouse started performing as a teenager. "It was really motivated by fear," he
    recalls. "I'm kind of an introvert, so it was an uncomfortable situation. It was a way
    to force a crisis." The young artist experienced an exhilaration he'd never felt before,
    and hasn't found anywhere else since. "It's a feeling of heightened awareness that goes
    beyond pleasure," Waterhouse explains. "It has something to do with seeing ahead in
    time and behind in time all at once. You don't just get the immediate reward; you get
    the potential that rewards you the same way."


    Waterhouse explored the idea of potential on his breakthrough single, "Some Place," a
    beautifully lean, propulsive track recorded at all-analog studio the Distillery and self
    released in 2010 on his own Pres label. "Well, there's someplace that I'd rather be,"
    Waterhouse sang in a fierce yet plaintive register. "And it's something that's been on my
    mind almost constantly."


    These days, Waterhouse is a successful recording artist, with one well-received LP and
    and several high-profile tours and collaborations to his name. But his latest work still
    embodies the struggle of his early forays. During "This Is a Game," Waterhouse sets up
    a snarly, post-surf guitar solo with a succinct statement of a cynical outlook: "This is a
    game / Please remember my words / And don't get upset when you don't get what you
    think you deserve." And on the gothic-soul strut "Let It Come Down," he meditates on
    the inevitability of pain. "If there's gonna be rain tonight," he sings in a stoic croon.
    "Let it come down."


    It's clear from this material that Waterhouse is in the midst of his own becoming. He
    isn't the type to let ecstasy take over, like Van Morrison, or to drawl away in a consummately laid-back register, like Mose Allison. In the tension between his wry lyrics and
    crisp arrangements, you hear the expression of a worldly skeptic who's also-when it
    comes to his art-a sanctified believer. Whoever it was that Nick Waterhouse wanted to
    be matters less now; these days, he just sounds like himself.

    Wild Onion (Out Of Stock)


    " Twin Peaks have perfected the kind of songwriting that puts you in a practiced, happy headlock."
    - Pitchfork


    "The Chicago teenagers who make up the band Twin Peaks make a confident old-school indie rock chug that should be beyond their years."
    - Stereogum


    "Although steeped in the amp-shattering sensibilities of a garage band, the triumphant Sunken listens like a sunny pop record. It's lovably fuzzy, worn with the character of beloved jukebox hits."
    - Consequence of Sound


    Don't bother asking Twin Peaks about the deeper meaning of their band name. They simply thought it sounded cool, which explains why their second album Wild Onion isn't as spooky or surreal as David Lynch's short-lived TV show. It's more like a modern day Nuggets, with Ty Segall, Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.


    If combining the influence of so many classic artists seems like a lofty goal for a group of 20 year olds, just remember that Twin Peaks' core quartet-frontman Cadien Lake James, guitarist Clay Frankel, bassist Jack Dolan and drummer Connor Brodner-has roots that reach back to elementary school. After cutting his teeth during his high school freshman year in a duo with his older brother Hal, James reconnected with his old chums and formed what would become Twin Peaks, and the chemistry was immediately undeniable.


    Having quickly cut their debut LP, 2013's Sunken, in Cadien's basement so they could sell it on tour, the band was excited to spend more time developing Wild Onion, a record that reveals a level of maturity beyond all the amp-singeing solos, ragtag rhythms and dizzying voices of three distinct singer-songwriters. Unlike acts who let their egos get in the way, Cadien, Clay and Jack share the spotlight and play to one another's strengths as Connor keeps things moving with a steady beat.

    Images 13 (Out of Stock)


    "Dex Romweber was and is a huge influence on my music. I owned all of his records as a teenager, and was thrilled at the fact that we were able to play together recently on tour. [He is] is one of the best kept secrets of the rock n roll underground." -Jack White, White Stripes


    For a quarter century, Dex Romweber has trolled the dark corners and back shelves of the haunted thrift store of Americana ephemera and honed an extraordinarily idiomatic sound, a particular and readily identifiable DEXness for those in the know. It's a creepy doll collection of surf, proto-rockabilly, garage, dark and vengeful blues, and nobody, but nobody, plays it like Dex. First with the legendary Flat Duo Jets and now with his Duo, Dex distilled the punk ethos of less-is-more to the essential guitar/drums template. Left in the wake of his lecherous and slithery Silvertone were early acolytes like Jack White, Neko Case, and the Reigning Sound as well as a current crop of the indie pack like Ty Segall, No Age, Japandroids, and The Black Keys. All owe an unclaimed pawn ticket of debt to his sublime and spine-tingling sound. He is a live wire back to the murky, sometimes dangerous and always unpredictable headwaters of real rock and roll.


    Dex, with his whip-wristed sister Sara Romweber on drums, take Images 13 through neon-lit alleys, full of pulp fiction juvey rock, sci-fi theme songs and greasy denim hipster jive. Effortlessly versatile and raucously dismissive of genre constraints, exciting and darkly romantic, Images 13 would make everyone from Duane Eddy to Stan Kenton to Lenny Bruce crack a smile, a joke or the seal on a fifth of rye and head for the Naugahyde ice bucket.


    Recorded at Rick Miller's (Southern Culture on the Skids) Kudzu Ranch studio in North Carolina, the album bristles with a sense of drama, of tension, of release, of mystery. "Roll On" and "Long Battle Coming" display the cinematic sleaze nestled between The Cramps and West Side Story. Eerie ballads "Baby I Know What It's Like to be Alone" and "I Don't Want to Listen" reveal the crooning, bruised romantic, the harsh morning light of a strange hotel room, a Raymond Chandler novel on the bedside table. "Beyond the Moonlight" is part sea shanty longing and part campfire revival. Then, just as easily, the instrumentals take center stage. "Blackout!" updates Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn theme with a dynamic tension and sly cool, and Dex and Sara attack the big waves off Maui with a chaotic rush on "Blue Surf" - his guitar guiding you into the sweet spot of the pipeline and her drums pounding you into the sand. Hey Tarantino, wake up!


    Digging into the skeleton-filled rock 'n' roll closet, Dex Romweber Duo comes up with some obscure and wonderful gems. The early Who track "So Sad About Us," featuring Mary Huff (SCOTS) on vocals, hits an uncharacteristically sunny power pop vibe. The hopeful "We'll Be Together Again" written by Eddie Cochran's girlfriend Sharon Sheeley about his death in a car accident (that she and Gene Vincent survived). The song was never released formally but recorded by Jackie DeShannon in the early '60s. Finishing up the album is the music of Harry Lubin, who did theme music for shows like The Outer Limits and One Step Beyond. "Weird (Aurora Borealis)" is the music from the latter when ghosts, UFO's, or odd paranormal experiences begin to rear their strange heads, complete with tribal drums and Melissa Swingle (Trailer Bride, The Moaners) on the saw.


    Flat Duo Jets - so often emulated, so rarely duplicated - released the first of nine albums in 1990 to rave reviews worldwide. They starred, alongside R.E.M. and The B-52s, in the 1987 cult classic film Athens, GA: Inside/Out. Their first national tour in 1990 was as opening act for The Cramps and they made a stunning impression on Late Night with David Letterman. Dex Romweber Duo's first record Ruins of Berlin featured guest appearances by Neko Case, Cat Power, and Exene Cervenka. Dex was name-checked by Jack White in the guitar superstar documentary It Might Get Loud, and the Duo recorded a single and live album with White for his label Third Man Records in 2009. Subsequently, the Duo has shared the stage with dozens of rock icons including Wanda Jackson, Cat Power, Neko Case, and The White Stripes. In 2012, the documentary about Dex's sometimes harrowing career Two Headed Cow was released.
