Ain’t nobody named Emily in this Columbus, Ohio-based band (although Emily Mollineaux took the photo above), but we’ll let that slide. “You Wont” is from their new EP/7-inch, Dirty Southern Love, due out on August 19. It’s loud and lazy, gritty and pretty and we like it a lot. Hope y’all agree.
Emily & The Complexes were born on the road, so it’s no surprise that they’ll be burning up the asphalt in support of the new record. Catch ‘em if you can (you might see us at Don Pedro on August 17):

Here’s a fine thing for a lazy summer’s evening.
Also on this week’s show: Cocoanut Groove, Slowness (new), The Rifles, Kaleidescope (U.K.), Allah-Las, Math and Physics Club, Maximo Park, The Steinbecks, Shoes, The Ramones, Beverly, The Outskirts, and Roddy Frame (new).
Indeed, The Stone Roses remains an immortal moment in modern British pop history. A quarter century on, one is still held enthralled by John Squire’s lovely, commanding yet beautiful guitar passages, Mani’s booming, loping bass, and Reni’s kick-drum-heavy grooves, backing a bravura performance from smallish, po-faced frontman Ian Brown, whose almost whispery trilling belies an essential brashness. There’s not a false moment, from the opening buildup of the says-it-all “I Wanna Be Adored” to the concluding, psychedelic funky freak-out of the (also self-explanatory) “I am the Resurrection.”
With numerous albums under his belt, underground folk singer, Stanley Brinks, collaborates with his old pal, French solo singer-songwriter Freschard, for a dull collection of duets that stands out as a low point in their respective careers.
On Christmas Day, 2013, Beijing, China’s swamp rock stomper, GuiGuiSuiSui, and electronic experimentalist, Noise Arcade, joined forces to record a perplexing album that, somehow, perfectly blends the two artists’ distinct styles.
Many people may hold their ears and run from that, as they might from Crabe, but those that remain are like the first 5 people that thought Primus was the shit and bought a tape. The prescient among us might twig to what obvious genius and true punk sorcery is being offered in the oeuvre of this phenomenal band.
In a word, their hour long set was epic. We overuse that word in the human race just like we wear out words like amazing but nonetheless if you were hesitating even in the slightest about seeing them as they embark on their upcoming tour, think again. It could easily be the best show you’ve seen all year and one you’ll remember and cherish for decades to come. It will make any doubters a believer in the blissful power of shoegaze music.Read more...
It is strange to be anything at all and still we’re all glad for the shared experience of hearing someone like Jeff Mangum who is not like anyone else we’ve ever known.
England’s Factory Floor three piece started out slow but pretty soon female lead singer Nik Colk was starting to dance to her own rhythms as the heightened sense of beats took over the crowd and made for an awesome beginning set for many people. Some fans were even so appreciative of the beats by live drummer Gabriel Gurnsey that they started crowdsurfing!
We own all of the rights to our back catalog, so we asked ourselves for permission to use some older tunes, and we generously told ourselves that we would be happy to let ourselves use them (we have a very good relationship with ourselves in that respect)Read more...
I love to play with all of these effects pedals and to create sounds. A lot of that stuff is from your country… the whole room flashes like a pinball game.
That’s why a great song, just missing one or two pieces, can lie dormant for a few years before we finally polish it off, complete with icing and a cherry on top.
Daisy House is generous music, and very old school at heart. Who knows? It might even be revolutionary.
You don’t have to go to music school to be a musician and so it’s the same thing. You don’t have to take writing classes to be a writer!
