Hellooooo Walla Walla!

The new “goblin-funk” album from Primus that tells the story of 7 greedy rainbow thieves, a consistent and emotional tape from August Burns Red (the video helps u out here), and Leon Bridges in some brand new pants, are on the docket, and sure to keep you on yer toze.

Gabe: Dinosaur Eyelids – Left Turn On Red 
 
Mentioned in last week’s blast as a side note, Dinosaur Eyelids’ riffs n licks just kept on carving through the aponeurosis of my skull, and somehow popped out onto this week’s New Music Blast! A seriously catchy record, which doesn’t come out in the Real World for another week or two, but should be Blasting the college radio charts before it even gets released. In “left turn on red,” Dinosaur Eyelids, outta New Jersey, serve up some instant classics. Hard hitting riffs and 1liners like “can you see the shadow on the sun//can you with a war without a gun” and “we will never be rich but we’ll always be loud” are provocative and sonically are given the weight they deserve. And so are the shredding solos. big fan of tracks 1, 4, and 6. It’s str8 up rock ‘n roll with no exceptions. No link here cuz the album’s not out yet, but find it in the New Music STAXx

Harrison: OHMME – OHMME
 
“Elements of tUnE-yArDs are speckled throughout this debut album from OHMME. The songs are adventurous and unexpected with some noisier bits, and the duo’s vocals are seriously beautiful. It’s an ambitious album that covers a lot of territory within just six songs. One of the more unique albums I’ve listened to in a while!” This band used to be called HOMME, but they switched the first two letters for the new EP. Hear dis fidgety guitar on Woman

Cory: Septicflesh – Codex Omega
 
“To fully prepare for the new Septicflesh album, I listened to the previous three albums of the band beforehand (these are their releases since their reunion). Overall, I have to say that these Greek metallers do not disappoint. Having carved out a niche in the genre of “symphonic” death metal, this band has never sounded bored or tired on any moment of their most recent releases, in any sense. The band and orchestra arrangements are always fresh and invigorate the already full and heavy guitar and drum production; the performance of the band always strikes a perfect balance of live energy and studio technicality; and best of all, they have these continually vital elements while sounding only like Septicflesh. This is definitely a rare instance of unique yet old school appreciative metal in our day and age. Its never a bad thing in the metal genre to hear a new album that sounds exactly the way you want it to.” Some deep dark conspiracies fleshed out in this album, the love child of a Da Vinci Code soundtrack and some good old fashioned death metal. I am hooked on Enemy of Truth

Calvin: Susanne Sundfor – Music For People in Trouble
 
“man this album is beautiful. Susanne Sundfor drops her usual synth-pop style and instead goes for a minimal, folk-tinged sound. Much of the album simply focuses on Sundfor’s piercing vocals over a single instrument, but the music’s lack of complexity is maybe its greatest aspect. I almost felt like I was listening to an ambient album because the music is so tranquil and enveloping. Sundfor also subtly enhances the songs with echoing backup vocals and sounds of birds chirping and water flowing, adding to the album’s overpowering sense of atmosphere. A few times, she allows her songs to blossom into a larger climax, leading to some of the most cathartic moments I’ve heard in music all year. Check out the song Mountaineers for a taste or put on the whole thing to be fully wrapped up in this warm blanket of an album!”
Listen thru this 1 after you steal the last cookie out the cookie jar and u feel kinda bad cuz you’re in trouble but also f the po leece. Super ambient w piercing lyrics!

Gardner: Mister Heavenly – Boxing the Moonlight
 
“This indie rock supergroup comprised of members of Modest Mouse, Cold War Kids, Islands, and Man Man is back with their sophomore album after a 6 year hiatus. Scrappy yet polished guitar and persistent drums stretch across this passionate, foot-tapping ride of an album. I will say that most all of the best songs on this album are front-loaded, but when its good its GOOD ya know what I mean. Good Excuses is reminiscent of the Strokes at their best — masterful simplicity in a packagable, fun sound and having a great time while doing it! The stylistic touches of the respective bands that form this group shine through on certain songs (see tracks 6 and 7), while melding into a more unique sound on others, and for this reason, Boxing in the Moonlight is subtly hard to pin down and decidedly stronger than their first album. The oscillation in style is not as true for the mood of album as a whole, which has an emo-boys-in-the-sun feel throughout. Listen to 3,4, and 10 for the range of musical landscape this group is able to create. This is a really solid if self-confused release from this supergroup.”
