DjBabyBuster's log of vinyl, mp3s, and photography gems worth hoarding...
I really dug the first two sold out 7”s from Horsebeach, despite missing actually getting a copy of the first one. This is some top notch Manchester C86 pop here, with tight guitar work and hooks abound. Their whole first album is streaming on SnDcLd and it definitely lives up to the first singles.
Apparently volume 3 of The Pitchfork Review, which is some “quarterly of long-form feature stories, photography, design, cartoons and other ephemera, The Pitchfork Review documents music culture, past and present," contains a vinyl single featuring this new song from King Tuff and one from The Lentils.
Huh, didn’t know any of this was on the way, but I do love all things King Tuff.
I’m a little wary of a garage band taking their name from one of the best television shows of all time, but I’ll overlook that slight injustice and just say that I really dig their music and this video. This sounds like it has all the workings of a great summer album, and I keep getting whiffs of King Tuff. Which is never a bad thing.
Twin Peaks’ second album Wild Onion (out on Grand Jury) is like a modern day Nuggets, with Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
Twin Peaks - Wild Onion LP is Ltd on opaque grimace purple and bone vinyl with the first 100 pre-orders also receiving a pack of custom Twin Peaks “Flavor” rolling papers and a 12x12 digital print, autographed by the band. Pre-order directly from the band now, out August 5th.
Gorgeous new material from British singer-songwriter Vashti Bunyan. I’m not one for very many singer-songwrite artists, but I make an exception when it comes to Vashti Bunyan. One listen and you’ll know why. Mesmerizing and intoxicatingly beautiful.
Love me some Not Waving always. This is the third limited to 100 cassette under the new moniker, sold out pretty immediately as always, but you can still grab digitals from BnCmP. Some of the best material from Alessio Natalizia yet. There’s a couple copies on discogs for not too price gougey a price if you’re committed.
