An almost weekly assortment of musical oddities purchased by or given to POF.
ALL THE SAINTS – Fire On Corridor X (touchandgo) – Originally released by Killer Pimp, Fire On Corridor X is a seamless 40-minute debut full-length by aggressive, yet polished, psychedelic Atlanta trio, who are about to tour with A Place to Bury Strangers and Darker My Love in October. Look for an new ep, Cyclerratic, on Hoss records soon. Mp3s of “Sheffield” and “Fire on Corridor X” from brainwashed.com and “Farmacia” mp3 courtesy of Ohmpark.
V/A – FAT POSSUM RSD 7″ – Oxford, Mississippi label, Fat Possum’s Record Store Day Four band Split 7″. Red Vinyl, with tracks from Wavves, Preacher Man, Crocodiles and Thomas Function.
GIRLS – Lust for Life 7″ (true panther sounds) – Download the dramatic seven-minute ballad “Hellhole Ratrace” and the b-side “Solitude” off their upcoming Hellhole Ratrace 10″. (mp3s from MBVmusic). Their full length, ALBUM, will be a joint release by True Panther Sounds and Matador on September 22nd.
HEALTH – Get Color mp3 (lovepump united) – mp3 version for pre-ordering, until the vinyl arrives.
JAY REATARD – Watch Me Fall LP (matador) – 180g pressing with digital download. Upon my first glance at the title, I incorrectly assumed it was Watch Me FAIL. Jay Reatard’s expansive catalog of catchy two-minute long garage-pop songs keeps growing without becoming redundant.
THOMAS FUNCTION – Belly of the Beast 7″ (fat possum) – Two upbeat garage-lovin’ sing-a-longs on Yellow vinyl.
THOMAS FUNCTION – Celebration 12″ (alive) – Red vinyl, 500 pressed. Their next full-length, In the Valley of Sickness (fat possum), is due mid-October. Thomas Function are playing at the Lounge on Elm St on “Mischief Nite” (aka Oct 30th) w. Digital Leather (also on Fat Possum), Yussuf Jerusalem (from France) and Leg Sweeper.
KURT VILE & The VIOLATORS – The Hunchback EP 12″ + mp3 (richie) – Philadelphia psychedelic folk singer-songwriter with his backing band, showcase six stoner jams on this out-of-print EP from Richie Records and TestosterTunes. Kurt Vile’s debut for Matador Records, Childish Prodigy, will be out in October.
WAVVES – Wavvves (fat possum) – Since I recieved another copy of this from the label, I will be giving this away, along with other goodies, in an upcoming newsletter. Subscribe to newsletter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org . Wavves will make a long overdue Dallas appearance at Pastime Tavern w. Ganglians and El Paso Hot Button on October 9th.
JACK WHITE – Fly Farm Blues 7″ (third man) – A-side only single from the film “It Might Get Loud”. B-Side features a print of the Third Man Records logo.
