Do you like the New Pornographers but always thought they were kind of silly? Perhaps they lacked some real life experience? Or maybe there was just too fucking many of them, you know: chefs, kitchen, bad stew, or something? Where that shit forgot to get serious, Bad Cello is here to infuse some underhanded darkness into the vibrant poppy synthesizers that make up their aesthetic. Enjoy, little rabbits. Because this beautiful boy can sing. @Dingusonmusic
A Last Hurrah for the Glory of Drinking Aloneby Skinnybones (New York, New York) *
You all know the truth. The music we post here is pretty much the best on planet Earth. It’s that stuff that people will look back on from their Wall-E chairs and say, “damn”. So much heart. Skinnybones is all heart. Some balls. All heart and some balls. Certain tracks deliver a feeling similar to draping your balls across a belt sander. Others are slightly less aggressive, perhaps more like simply hand sanding your balls (the above track as such). Either way, guitars go crazy and A Last Hurrah for the Glory of Drinking Alone is rock an droll gold. These kids make me miss my hood, my rock and roll hood. [Free Download] @Dingusonmusic
‘American Special’ by Teen Commandments (Brooklyn, New York) *
This is super deep. “Well, in America, everyone’s special”. So true. So true. Teen Commandments is easily one of my favorite bands. There’s something so simple and catchy, so pervasively charming. Between the lifted synths and the lifted synths I’ve been plucked from 2014 and time machined back to the 80′s. That’s the 80′s I hear right? I dont know, I’m just a kid with a music blog. America is so awesome. America sucks. Whatever. This track is tight as dick skin that’s all I know. @Dingusonmusic
What even IS a DIY label? Like, if you have a label, are you really DIY? If you’re DIY can you really be on a label. Well since Dingus is the definitive end all and be all to defining the DIY movement around the globe (tell your friends), I’m here today to tell you, shut up and just listen to what we post. The gathering collection of DIY music under one brand with net existence and self promotion is as do it your self as it comes. Moose Records, the Paris based netlabel of one, Ms. Julia Losfelt and one, Andrea *two producers forever featured within the pages of the Dingus, holds a commitment to poetic melody. Something sacred. Something original and tangible to the human curve. Damn them for being so fine. [Facebook Page] @Dingusonmusic
No joke, this is one of the best things I’ve ever heard. Turn this on when you wake up in the morning. Turn this on when you’re burning that green in the evening. Last night I was trying to stream Dallas Buyers Club illegally on these here internets and my shit kept freezing… every time it did, I played this.
So you should play this.
When asked about the recording, Bell (Nice Knees), responded: “IDK there isn’t much interesting about it I was angry at a guy who’s now one of my best friends and I mixed it four times… those two thoughts are kind of unrelated ostensibly. Really I got less angry every time I mixed it.” @mavyentco
‘What You’ve Got On’ by Northern Arms (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
‘What You’ve Got On’ is a haunting display of gospel rock. Its big and ornate, the sound is full and you can’t help but sit down and focus on whats flowing through your ears. The first 10 seconds of this song really pulled me in, the smoothness that ripples into the rest of the song just sucks you in. I’m just going to have to pull and white girl and say “I can’t” because literally, I can’t with the greatness of Northern Arms. @LeahDingus
As soon as I saw this album cover I just had to click on it. I had to see what ‘She Lives In New York’ is all about. From what I can hear, it’s pretty accurate. No Stories wrote the epitome of the New York transplant girl. We all know her. The girl who wears the shirts of bands she’s never heard, the girl who with the “die young” attitude. You see her on every corner, at every bar, she’s there. I really got a kick out of this and not only that, I really enjoyed it. There is something about good pop music that my ears love, no matter what, I can’t pass it up. I need it to thrive and thank goodness for No Stories. @LeahDingus
Tales From The Woady by Tsugnarly (Melbourne, Australia)
I’m starting to think that I need to dedicate a day just for my love of Australian bands. Tsugnarly are added to my list of Aussies and they are killing it. KILLING IT! Tales From The Woadycombines old school surf and new school rock and roll, producing a spine chilling album that will make your bones shiver and shake. This album makes me want to look at the world in graphic novel form. Everything is slightly twisted and heavily magical. Think Coraline but more urban, more city, more dark but still beautiful. Also, a swamp must be involved. Thanks, Tsugnarly, you set my imagination running wild. If you ever come to Brooklyn, I’ll buy you a round. @LeahDingus
Happy Monday everybody! I’m about to unleash on you an album so good that it will make it seem that Friday isn’t that far off. Ohn E Amasis post-punk electronica from the vibrant mind of Alex Musto. Having had the opportunity to see him play live, I can only say that he’s got the stuff. Unyielding energy and rocking tunes, complete with catchy beats and choruses. Ohn E Amas captures the weekend stamina and spits it out in musical form, making your hips succumb to shaking and sends your body into convulsions. What Model Citizens are the band you want at your next party, they are THE band to have on your bill, they’ll make you love the moment and ache for it unit you get it again. Alex Musto, I salute you, please keep it coming. @LeahDingus
