White Denim - Workout Holiday (08)

[Garage, Lo-Fi, Dub, Voodoo Rock]

The Austin Chronicle published a list of "10 ATXers to Watch in 2007." Opening act White Denim placed ninth on the list, and the band’s set this evening completely justified the accolades. Their kinetic sound recalls everything from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s garage stomp to Old Time Relijun’s lo-fi voodoo to the Minutemen’s funk-flavored punk. The drummer did awe-inspiring things with polyrhythms and beat displacement. The bassist played fleet-fingered runs with such intensity that his glasses frequently flew off of his face. Here is there 2008 debut release, Workout Holiday.

Tickley Feather - Tickley Feather (08)

[Lo-Fi Gold, Experimental, Freak Folk, Lyric Dub, Electronic]

Tickley Feather is the moniker for Philadelphia four-track enthusiast Annie Sachs, with the similarly titled album Tickley Feather, respectfully. She is signed to Paw Tracks who released her debut album on April 28th 2008 in the UK and April 29 Stateside. She is lovely, and all together alluring. The true sister of Ariel Pink opposed to my claimed sibling of his. Aside from her rather lame and hard pulling title "Tickley Feather", she is amazing. Good thing I have enough self-confidence to claim I enjoy listening to an artist and album of such name. I hope you do too.

Bad name, Bad album art, Unbelievably fantastic music

Dr. Dog - Fate (08)

[Blues, Lo-Fi, Alt.]

Most my friends aren't huge huge fans of Dr. Dog, and although they might claim a few reasons why this is so, I have come to the conclusion that there is only one defining difference between our contrasting point of views. They haven't seen these guys live! I was front and center almost half a year ago for Dr. Dog, and I can proudly say that after seeing them perform I completely caved to the Dr. Dog craze, which can only explain why I am super excited to be listening to their latest release entitled Fate. And, I can happily say that they have lost a bit of their washed up Beatles sound and have instead turned toward a heavier lo-fi, bluesy sound this time around.
