Rose Window” - Young Widows

Continuing with my promotion of their new album, In and Out of Youth and Lightness, I’m now giving you the opportunity to listen to Young Widow’s “Rose Window.” It’s the b-side off of their Future Heart single, and shows a different, more methodical side of the trio (and according to our interview with Evan, it is the first of a number of b-sides). The album comes out April 12th on Temporary Residence, and if it isn’t one of the year’s best, I’ll be shocked.

Swimmer” - Caroline

Four years after the release of her debut record Murmurs, Caroline Lufkin (one part of Mice Parade) finally released the follow-up we’ve been waiting for in Verdugo Hills. Intimately beautiful vocal melodies meld expertly well with minimalistic dream-pop instrumentals throughout the record, and make Verdugo Hills one of the early standout releases of the year. “Swimmer” is the lead single from the LP. You can order the vinyl via Temporary Residence [here] for a mere 10 bucks.

William Basinski - The Disintegration Loops

The Disintegration Loops is based on Basinski’s attempts to salvage earlier recordings made on magnetic tape, by transferring them into digital format; however, the tape had deteriorated to the point that, as it passed by the Tape Head, the ferrite detached from the plastic backing and fell off. Basinski has said that he finished the project the morning of the September eleventh attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, and sat on the roof of his apartment building in Brooklyn with friends listening to the project as the W.T.C. towers collapsed.

I’ve probably posted this before, don’t care though. fuck

Future Heart” - Young Widows

A trio that I have known of for a good amount of time, but have always allowed to reside beyond the periphery of my vision. But then “Future Heart” landed in my inbox (and many others). “Future Heart” is the first single off of their highly-anticipated upcoming album, In and Out of Youth and Lightness, due out on Temporary Residence Ltd. on April 12th. After hearing the blues riffs, cavernous sludge, and deafening noise-rock that is “Future Heart,” Young Widows demand attention, lodging themselves firmly in the cranium.

Paul de Jong : “Auction Block”

It’s been five long years since the brilliant closing chapter to The Books, and we’ve seen two albums from co-founder and singer Nick Zammuto, but none from cellist Paul de Jong until now. de Jong was always described as the stranger half of The Books, and that description becomes abundantly clear once you get a dose of what he sounds like without Zammuto there to balance him out. “Auction Block” is the first track to be released from IF, and it’s lead with an intricate folksy cello part, underscored with gorgeous piano playing, and held together by the mesmerizing sound of an auctioneer doing what they do best. Recapturing the uniquely experimental sound of the early Books records, understanding how it all works together is well beyond me, but one thing is for certain - I want more of this as soon as possible.

Pinback are one for the indie rock purists. In 2012, a band can be more beard-stroking than drum kit-thrashing and include a Mongolian throat-singer where should stand a rhythm guitarist and still be branded ‘indie rock.’ That’s nothing to criticize, but it goes partway to explaining why Information Retrieved sends a nostalgic ripple up my spine.
