Silver Summit + King Tuff

Silver Summit, Silver Summit (Language of Stone 2008)
Brooklyn-based folk-psychers with a record out on new Drag City sub-label Language of Stone, in the vein of White Magic or Espers, whose Greg Weeks recorded and co-produced. Out on a West Coast tour right now and will be back playing Union Pool on 9/26 with Heavy Hands and Pink Noise.

Silver Summit - "Water's Edge"

King Tuff, Was Dead (The Colonel 2008)
Garage pop fuzz from Kyle Thomas of Witch (with J Mascis) and Feathers ...

King Tuff - "Sun Medallion"



Seemingly one of the only tracks left off the great Steinski career retrospective What Does It All Mean? "The song that I'm about to sing ... means so much to me ..."

Steinski & Mass Media - "Let's Play It Cool (Club Mix)"



Growing, All the Way (Social Registry 2008)
Another step forward as Growing continues to shift from nature-drone to jumpy-electronics, somehow maintaining that stationary / meditative core of their sound -- plug in, get lost -- inside the bouncing circuits. Out Sept. 9, and you can catch them live at the MBV-curated All Tomorrow's Parties or on tour opening for Hot Chip (? I'm curious how that will go over) ...

Growing - "Green Flag"

"Wrong Ride"



Saudade sends out "fucked up not ambient noisy garage gazing" (their words) transmissions from Oregon and has a whole record called The Hooded Ones [2008] available for free on the web. I'd grab it ... between this and Grouper's Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, Portland is ruling my week ...

Saudade - "134 Ash Street"

Saudade - "Sleep's Walk"

Grouper - "Heavy Water / I'd Rather Be Sleeping" [2008]
