New Music Tuesday 7/26/11

Posted on by .

It’s Tuesday! New music comes out today! Here’s what I’ve got on the top of my shopping list (there are some really good ones this week):

 

Living Like Kings in Confined SpaceHalos

I’ve enjoyed this band every time I’ve seen them. Their song “Amalgam” made my SXSW 2011 mix. I’m really looking foward to finally having this album. If you like soaring rock songs, you should check it out. And if you’re in LA, come to their record release party TONIGHT at The Viper Room. 8pm.

Download the album here

 

 

IndiansIndians

Joe Hursley (The Ringers) strikes again with this first album from his new band, Indians. This high energy debut does a decent job at capturing the crazy intensity of a live Indians performance. I’ve been listening to it since the CD release party at The Viper Room last Friday. Songs like “Long Way Home” and my favorite (at least thus far) “Dream Store” are perfect “get pumped up songs” and I’m finding this CD a perfect mood setter for a night out on the town.

Pressure and TimeRival Sons

I had no idea this CD wasn’t officially released yet. I’ve been groovin’ with it for weeks now. This LA based bluesy rock band has been on my list of acts to see ever since I first heard singer Jay Buchanan sing his first note at an intimate Hotel Cafe mini set. Rival Sons seem to be getting more notice lately; playing gigs around the world, having their video played on MTVU, and being nominated for classic rock Hall of Honour awards.  Definitely a group to keep your eyes on.

LP1- Joss Stone 

I haven’t heard any of this yet, but I’ve been a fan of this soulful Brit since 2003’s Soul Sessions and I’m definitely interested to see what she’s been up to lately.

Happy Listening!

PS: apparently Nico Vega’s debut LP was not available worldwide on ITunes until today. This is one of my very favorite CDs so if you don’t yet have it, give it a download. You won’t regret it.

 

New Band Alert: Indians!

Posted on by .

You guys remember The Ringers, right? Well, if you live in the Los Angeles area you probably remember them…or know someone who does. Well, when the band decided to dissolve, somewhat unexpectedly last year, many dissapointed fans were left wondering what happened…and what would happen next.

Well now they are back…at least in part. Singer Joe Hursley and drummer Patrick Hursley, formally of The Ringers, have combined forces with Michael Hays and  Mike McGill to start a new project called Indians. No music up yet, but theyseem to have a show booked for Jan. 22nd at Area 33 in Culver City!

I don’t know about you, but I’m terribly excited!

will Indians sound anything like this?
