Gemma Ray - Rescue Me

The song "Rescue Me" is lovely and all but my real affinity for this video comes from my passion for '60s and '70s mod fashions and bright colors. EYE CANDY + EAR CANDY = YUMMY ! ! !

A must listen to for fans of classic girl groups through a Lynchian filter; her new record Island Fire is due out May 29th.

Sex Church

Can't say I love the name but I am digging the band's music. Sex Church = gothic garage filled with reverb and rage. Imagine something like the Country Teasers joining forces with Birthday Party.

Another favorite of 2011 : Still Corners

New record Creatures of an Hour is out now on Sub Pop and also wins a spot on my David Lynch radio show. (Although it is hard not to think of Broadcast and the Cranes too)

Favorite New Artist of 2011 (new to me at least) : Chelsea Wolf

Thanks to Talia for directing me towards her and as fate had it, a perfect fit for the David Lynch Cause + Effect show I am working on for this week. Her newest album Apokalypsis is out now on Pendu Sound Recordings.

Jungle Fever

It is at times like this that I wish I had money (AKA was employed again) to grow my record label because I would beg this band to be on it in a minute - SO GREAT! They are a three piece from San Diego, CA; two girls and a boy. Maybe punk isn't dead after all.

Listen to them here (also their website)

Mira Cook

Mira Cook is my newest musical obsession; all thanks to the recent Aquarius Records recent review of her Capella CDR.
"With only a single cassette release to her name, Mira Cook has already become one of our favorite delicate, hypnotic and entrancing music makers of the last few years. We've been lucky to get to see her play around town so much, each time watching as she adds a new self taught instrument to the mix, as she creates songs that are really like these miniature fairy tales of the everyday. Her cassette only release, was one of our best selling tapes of 2009, and for good reason. It introduced us to her unique, inviting and warm sensual world of sound. Signs contains some reworked versions of songs that appeared on the cassette along with a bunch of brand new tracks. Using loops as a way to create endless entrancing melody, and taking so sweetly to everything from dulcimer, to drum machines, to piano, to organ, etc., it's Mira's assured and captivating voice that transports us so utterly and completely. It's hard not to think about people like Joanna Newsom, Juana Molina and Bjork, as there is that same kind of unique vision, charm and golden presence in Cook's songs. We're also reminded a lot of that a capella record that Petra Haden made covering The Who's Sell Out. Like the musical equivalent of a Joseph Cornell box, every song on Signs is filled with such unique treasures!"
