TRK PRMR: Timothy Eerie – “Time Goes”

Like Santa Claus on speed, I deliver the goods before anyone else. Boys and girls, naughty or nice, here’s Timothy Eerie, a four-piece psych-trash outfit from right here in Orlando. “Time Goes” is a track off of the band’s recent cassette, Collide​~​A​~​Scope, brought to you by our friends at Godless America Records. This short funhouse of fuzz bounces around with thick guitar chugs and wobbly organ sounds, cycling from one distorted hook to the next. I envision myself soaking up UVs on a glass-covered beach while Spacey Casey transmits warped vocal melodies from Mars via ham radio.

According to the their bio, this band of gypsies was brought together by the true Timothy Eerie, a Stardust-esque space traveler who fled to earth after his home planet had been overcome by the “Dark Energy Empire.” People, this is truly a tale as old as time. You can read the rest of Timothy Eerie’s nebular backstory and purchase Collide​~​A​~​Scope on Godless America’s Bandcamp. Enjoy.

Catch Timothy Eerie’s live debut, June 4 at Will’s with Captains of April, Transcendental Telecom, and The Death Tremors.

just some songs (3/1)

Hey everyone! I wanted to start off by making excuses for the large gaps between posts. I’ve been really busy getting things going for our first show, “WE ARE ANIMALS.” It’s happening on 3/21 at The Space and features some of my favorite Orlando acts: Pasty Cline, Pathos, Pathos, Tiger Fawn and Witch Kings. There will be a full post announcing it soon, but you can find out more info and RSVP on the event page. It’s going to be rad and we’ve got a lot planned. In the next three weeks, I’ll be highlighting the music of the scheduled bands, maybe even throw in some video or a photo shoot. We’ll see.

Here are some songs I found while looking meandering Soundcloud. The genres vary, so if you don’t like one just go to the next sound, just skip it. We’re writing raw tonight. Enjoy.

 

The Raveonettes – “Z-Boys”

The boys and girls of summer are packing away their sun-bleached memories, and dragging their feet into a new semester of institutionalized learning. They eagerly wait for the school bell, an alarm that means freedom for a few fleeting moments. Waiting and waiting, for another moment to soak in the summer sun. Enjoy.


Read more about The Raveonettes, and catch their new album Pe’ahi out now! I was going to review it, but didn’t! It’s good though.

The Welzeins – “Cigarette Girls” // Album Release Show

Ladies and gentlemen, they won’t be stopped. The Welzeins plot to take over the universe is going all according to plan. First, the Orlando band announced their self-titled, debut album and released “Shit & Sugar.” Now, The Welzeins are dishing out “Cigarette Girls,” a raunchy, riff-laden barn-burner. Singer/guitarist RJ Nordstrom growls, “I’m addicted to you!” The feeling is mutual. Enjoy.

IMPORTANT: These boys are holding a album release show this Saturday at Backbooth. Buy your tickets now!

Cateye – “Taker (Little Faux Remix)”

Recently, Melbourne-based garage rock trio Cateye went on an indefinite hiatus after a farewell show at The 27 Club. I wasn’t able to go to the show, but I did see them last year at Uncle Lou’s. Their live show was an aggressive fuzz storm, with grudge-like movements and vocals by Olivia Rogers. If you never got to experience what I’m talking about, you can still download the band’s newly released Blood, Sweat, and Beers for whatever price you wish.

Here’s a new version of Cateye’s “Taker,” remixed by electronic producer, Little Faux. Enjoy.



Hear more from Little Faux at their Soundcloud.

Le Butcherettes – “Burn The Scab”

Le Butcherettes are set to release their second album Cry Is For The Flies on Sept. 16. The band’s debut Sin Sin Sin was full of tight, catchy rock tunes that were made to split hairs. Judging from “Burn The Scab,” it seems Le Butcheretes have found a way to push their spastic swagger into even filthier territories. Enjoy.

 

5 Days to Bonnaroo: Cage the Elephant

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Bring tons of cash. ATM lines are infinite.

Cage the Elephant – Saturday, July 14, 5:45 P.M. – Which Stage

Similar Bonnaroo Sounds: Dr. Dog, Ty Segall, The Orwells, Those Darlins



Cage the Elephant have gone through some major changes in their career. The band’s 2008 self-titled debut album was full of jangly, Stones-influenced rock hits like “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” and “In One Ear.” In 2011, Thank You, Happy Birthday saw the band at their most ferocious, playing fuzz-filled noisy rock. Incredibly aggressive tracks like “Sabertooth Tiger” and “Sell Yourself” featured vocalist Matt Schultz screaming incoherently, and to date, I consider Thank You, Happy Birthday my favorite Cage the Elephant album. Just last year, Melphobia, Cage’s third album, saw the band at their most experimental, incorporating elements like dance-infused melodies, trumpets, piano, and spoken word.

A few years back, I saw Cage the Elephant play at The House of Blues Orlando. Schultz was a madman: barking into the microphone, launching himself off their sound equipment, and nose diving into the audience. Afterwards, my best friend Joel and I met Schultz in parking lot. That night was a wild, sweaty experience that I will never forget, and I’m sure their Bonnaroo set will prove just as explosive.
