Rain Parade Friday

"This Can't Be Today" by The Rain Parade

In the early '80s, Los Angeles was the site of a music scene known as the Paisley Underground, and the Rain Parade was its foremost, most psychedelic, shoegaze denizen. When I first heard them I actually had no idea if this music came from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s or aughts.

Wild Nothing

Jack Tatum’s indie pop revival

Wild Nothing is a one-man project of Brooklynite and Williamsburg, Va. native Jack Tatum. His music unapologetically harkens the twinkling melancholy of ’80s Britpop song and production qualities. In advance of a show at the Sunshine with Beach House, Tatum spoke with the Alibi about past, present and the definition of pop.

The Dears

The Dears’ promo people encouraged me to share this free download“Blood,” from the band’s forthcoming album Degeneration Streetwith you readers. I like The Dears, a shoegaze-ish pop rock band from Montreal, and have to say this song’s OKit sounds a little ‘90s. Still, free music! Thanks, The Dears.

Woven Bones is a horrible delight

Within the ’60s “monster craze” there was also a rash of supernatural and otherworldly themes on the obscuro end of rock and roll. Songs like "Night of the Phantom" by Larry & the Blue Notes, "Sky Men" by Geoff Goddard and "Morgus the Magnificent" by Morgus & The Three Ghouls are a few examples of the era's haunted, if not silly, creations. America's demented genius Screamin' Jay Hawkins and his British follower the Screaming Lord Sutch were taking horror music to a more frightening place with songs like "Whistlin' Past the Graveyard" and "'Till the Following Night," respectively. Even more examples exist within the priceless 56-song compilation The Roots of the Cramps, released by Garage Masters Records last year, and in the ’60s trash rock series Back From the Grave, released by Crypt Records beginning in the ’80s.
