Avez-vous quelquefois, calme et silencieux,
Monté sur la montagne, en présence des cieux ?
Était-ce aux bords du Sund ? aux côtes de Bretagne ?
Aviez-vous l'océan au pied de la montagne ?
Et là, penché sur l'onde et sur l'immensité,
Calme et silencieux, avez-vous écouté ?
Voici ce qu'on entend : - du moins un jour qu'en rêve
Ma pensée abattit son vol sur une grève,
Et, du sommet d'un mont plongeant au gouffre amer,
Vit d'un côté la terre et de l'autre la mer,
J'écoutai, j'entendis et jamais voix pareille
Ne sortit d'une bouche et n'émut une oreille.

Victor Hugo

Jeans Wilder - Gravity Bong

Premiere from new album Totally

Totally did not expect this one to be coming out, but Jeans Wilder has been keepin busy.  Another tuned down pysch LP with plenty of slow burners to drag out your summer days.  This one sounds the cleanest to date, but by no means has he dropped his heavy distortion and crooning lyrics.  Definite summer jam set for heavy rotation.   

Everloving:

The lo-fi wash and dub-like production are still part of his signature, only now Jeans is a little bit further from the shade and closer to the sand. It’s the soundtrack for a bonfire at the moment where you steal away from the others to sit and watch the tide. Somewhere between the crashing churn of the Pacific, Jeans Wilder is out there.

Jeans Wilder - Totally LP will be out June 26th on Everloving here

Jeans Wilder - Spanish Tile

It would make sense that San Diego produces a depth of sun-blasted easy swimming pop tunes. Bros just long board all day up and down Mission Beach jamming out to tunes like this on their walkmen. Easy livin’. And Jeans just made this week brighter yet with a stunning new batch of songs, this only one of the goods. 

Get the Totally LP now on Bndcmp. Pre-oders for the wax should be up from the Everloving vinyl shop soon!

Previously: “In My Dreams

Jeans Wilder - Gravity Bong

Now. Pay no attention to that song title. DO however pay attention to the fact I’ve listened to this song along with another of Jean Wilder’s ALOT. I mean a heap load. There is just something about it that attracts me like the tracker beam on the Death Star. Maybe it’s the fact it reminds me of early Panda Bear [I just went there]. Maybe it’s the simple codine driven doo-wop drum beat.

Pick up his album “totally” from bndcmp among 5 others. Also do check another more organic cut Slow Burn from this album it’s another mind bender.

I could not be more pleased to present basically a dream of a lineup! All of these people have come to mean a lot to me over the last year. And all those internet minutes, and hours will finally come to fruition here on the west coast! So without further ado ::

Jeans Wilder // “Spanish Tile”

A hotly anticipated album around these parts is the upcoming full-length from San Diego lo-fi wonder Jeans Wilder. I’ve been a big fan of Jeans since 2009 when he put out Antiques through Night People. Since that time his sound has evolved from ghost pop to more of a 1960’s-tinged, beach-encrusted psych pop. On June 26, Everloving will put out Totally, Jeans followup to 2010’s excellent “nice trash.”

“Spanish Tile” is actually the second single to surface from the album and it finds Jeans noodling around with 1960’s exotica vibes. If you’ve ever wondered what it would sound like when a California beach bum emulated Les Baxter or Bert Kaempfert while simultaneously retaining a beach pop attitude, then “Spanish Tile” will put that farfetched and somewhat bizarre curiosity to rest. Oh, and make sure you check out the album’s first single “Limeade” while you’re at it.
