Song of the Day – Monday 12/20/2010 Young Prisms December 20, 2010

San Francisco psychedelic/shoegazing/garage/beach-pop quintet Young Prisms are preparing for the January 18 release of their debut full-length Friends For Now on Kanine Records who have described the Young Prisms’ sound as “this music will make you want to drop acid and become a recluse. Or it will make you even less excited to work your shitty day job. Or it will make you jump up and down in a dark crowded room while your eardrums bleed. Or it will make you feel something secret like happiness, minus any sentimental whimsicality. Or it will make you want to read Sarte, or graphic comic books, or maybe Hunter Thompson. And in one hundred years when people want to know what it felt like to be young on the West Coast in the early new millennium, they might just put on this record, by these rising kings (and queen) of Psychedelic Slackerdom.”

The single “These Days” was released as a 7″ split with Mathemagic on Atelier Ciseaux.

San Francisco’s noise-pop trio Weekend is singer and bassist Shaun Durkan, guitarist Kevin Johnson and drummer Abe Pedroza.

The band’s debut album, Sports was released on 11/9/2010 on Slumberland Records who describe the album as “one of the most assured debuts in recent memory, full of rumbling rhythms, layers of LOUD guitars and most of all great songs that pay special attention to texture and atmosphere, and leaven even the most riotous moments with unexpected shards of melody.”

If you saw the season finale of Eastbound & Down this past Sunday, then not only were you watching the funniest show on television, you would have also heard Philly indie rocker, Kurt Vile‘s single “He’s Alright” off his 2009 album, Childish Prodigy during the final scene.  MizMuze can’t wait for the return of Kenny Powers and his curly mullet next season…

Kurt Vile & The Violators co-headlined with The Soft Pack last night at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

Song of the Day – Friday 11/5/2010 Candy Claws November 5, 2010

Colorado’s Candy Claws, have released their new album, Hidden Lands on  Two Syllable Records on 8/3/2010.  Their record label describes Candy Claws’ unique style of recording:

“Each song on Hidden Lands contains a sample of every other song on the album.  They’d used this technique on previous releases, but this time around it happens throughout the whole album, creating a very cohesive listening experience.  Sometimes you’ll be able to recognize a bit of a song within another, but perhaps more interesting are the references only your subconscious will catch.  Without you noticing, your mind (and maybe your heart!) will make the connections, bridging the bridge of one song to the intro of another, taking in the album as a whole, just like albums should be.”

Let Candy Claws sink their claws into you on 11/11/2010 when they hit the stage at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

Avey Tare aka David Portner, is one of the founding members of Animal Collective.  His debut solo album, Down There was released today.  The album has been described as “a murky world of sound, an alien death world of soul grooves that is both honest and otherworldly.  Wait for sundown and turn it up loud.  Take a ride on this haunted boat and let yourself be guided through deep sloshy rhythms, waterlogged bass, and moonlit breaks in the canopy that reveal a crisp crystalline pop buzz.”

Song of the Day – Monday 9/27/2010 How to Dress Well September 27, 2010

The enigmatic How to Dress Well, is Tom Krell: a philosophy research fellow living in Cologne, Germany by day, and a self-made lo-fi indie artist by night.  With his love of 80’s and 90’s R&B, Krell has created homemade slow-jams mixing in his falsetto over distorted reverb.  

Sampling Michael Jackson’s “Baby Be Mine,” the 7″ “Ecstasy With Jo Jo” b/w “Take it On” is available on Transparent Records.  HTDW’s debut LP, Love Remains dropped on 9/21/2010…

Song of the Day – Wednesday 7/14/10 Neon Indian July 14, 2010

Alan Palomo is Neon Indian, born in Mexico and raised in Texas, whose lo-fi sound created quite a buzz last year when he released his debut LP, Psychic Chasms

Previously associated with his work with Ghosthustler and VEGA, Palomo describes Neon Indian’s sound as,  “Childhood re-contextualized through a psychedelic, lo-fi filter.  The idea of memory before you were old enough to have memories.”

Neon Indian will be sending smoke signals on 9/29/10 from The Fillmore in San Francisco when he is joined onstage with his live band which includes: Leanne Macomber, Ronald Gierhart, and Jason Faries.
