With ‘Fwends’ Like These

On With a Little Help From My Fwends, the Flaming Lips and “fwends” are back with a track-by-track cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles’ first full-length foray into psychedelia, and the results are as chaotic and mixed as any of the Oklahoma-based Lips’ experimentations into covering classic-rock albums or collaborating with an array of pop and indie stars. There are both supreme victories and utterly profound failures. Read more…

Lace Curtains – A Signed Piece of Paper

Less is So Much More

Michael Coomer’s post-Harlem project Lace Curtains is hard to pin down. They barely have a web presence – an opaque Twitter account and a Tumblr that’s rarely updated. Coomer’s lyrics exist somewhere in the range between playful and cryptic. The listener is often left wondering whether the lyrics are fluff or if there’s some deeper meaning to them. Songs like “Wilshire and Fairfax,” sung to the memory of Biggie Smalls, give one the impression that all the songs are all a roman à clef, an inside reference that needs further explanation. Regardless, Coomer has the ability to create evocative turns of phrase, such as “silence equals death, like a realistic fake bonsai tree” or “she might be a junkie, but it’s impolite to assume,” that paint vivid images in one’s mind.

New Build – Pour It On

Just Can’t Get Enough

New Build is an electronic music side project consisting of two-fifths of London dance-punk outfit/LCD protégés Hot Chip, namely guitarist and vocalist Al Doyle and percussionist Felix Martin. Their sophomore release, 2014’s Pour It On showcases remnants of the glistening, upbeat danceability that scored Doyle and Martin’s principal group a coveted spot on James Murphy’s DFA Records, along with a solid following. However, the album is primarily anchored in the bleak yet fleetingly catchy dirges of early 80’s proto-synth pop of groups like The Human League, Kraftwerk and Can. Read more…
