The Portland, Oregon, duo known as Wampire is about to release the band’s debut album, Curiosity, in a couple of weeks. Here’s a song, Trains, from the record.
Seattle musician Jesse Lortz, formerly of the Dutchess and the Duke, is about to release his second album with his latest project Case Studies. Give this song, Driving East, and Through Her, a listen. It’s very cool and will appear on This Is Another Life, which is due out in June.
I like this single, Stand in the Sand, from Chicago’s Twin Peaks. The song will appear on the band’s debut album, Sunken, which is scheduled for release in July.
You can download the song here.
Woods often has an anachronistic sound, especially on last year’s brilliant Bend Beyond. So why wouldn’t the band cover a 1971 Kinks song, God’s Children? The song will be the B-side on an upcoming 7-inch.
Listen to a B-side song from White Fence, Fragility, for the 7-inch release of Pink Gorilla. The latter song is on the new album Cyclops Reap, which is due out April 9.
Check out this new song and video from Wavves. Demon to Lean On will be on the upcoming Afraid of Heights. The new album is out March 26.
The Black Angels have a new album coming out in April, Indigo Meadow. Here’s a song from the release, Evil Things.
Here’s something to get excited about: a new song and album from the Men. The band just released this second song, I Saw Her Face, from the upcoming album New Moon. It’s an awesome country-influenced rocker that sounds a bit like Neil Young and Crazy Horse. New Moon comes out March 5.
Listen to this new song from Thee Oh Sees, Minotaur. It’s not your typical breakneck, frenzy of a psych garage rocker. Minotaur is a slow ballad and an interesting diversion for John Dwyer and his crew.
I’ll be interested to here the rest of the album, Floating Coffin, which is set for an April 16 release.
Psychedelic musician extraordinaire Tim Presley will release a new White Fence album, Cyclops Reap, in April. Hear a cool song from the release, Pink Gorilla.

Here’s a catchy new song by Glasgow’s Golden Grrrls. The band plans to put out a self titled album next month. Listen to the single Past Tense below.
Despite the name, there’s no hint of riot grrrl influence in the song. It’s more of an upbeat pop sound.
Portland, Oregon punks the Woolen Men plan to release their debut self-titled album in March. Check out the song Mayonaise from the release below.
You can find the Woolen Men’s self-released EPs on their Bandcamp site. The new album, due out March 5, is being released on Woods’ label, Woodsist.
Last year’s Open Your Heart by the Men made my list of the top 10 best albums of 2012. So I’m thrilled that these guys plan another release, New Moon, scheduled for March 5. Check out a single, Electric, from the new album below. Electric will be released on 7-inch vinyl January 22.
I really like this new song, The Dark Age, by Widowspeak. It appears on the album Almanac, expected out next month.
