[[DANGERZONE]] DEVIN THERRIAULT & T-SHYNE

Nothing about this isn’t wonderful.

Friday night at Radio Bushwick… DEVIN (Therriault) played Brooklyn for the first time in a long long time and, for an extremely unclear reason, T-Shyne and S’natra of H.O.M.E Team performed immediately after him.

[[DANGERZONE]] Julian Casablancas Played Shea Stadium This Monday

And everyone talked about it.

This is the closest I came to talking about it….

And I’m not gonna get any closer.

Here are some photos of bands playing a show at Shea Stadium a few Thursdays before Julian Casablancas did. This includes the band Big Ups who actually opened the Monday night show in question above.

Lore City (That’s Deep with Andrew Alexander)

12471_588520451166024_1973430991_nKill Your Dreams by Lore City   (Chicago, Illinois)

FACTS:  1. WE RECEIVE 50+ EMAILS A DAY WITH SUBMISSIONS / 2. I LISTEN TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM / 3. I BOOKMARK THE ONES I LIKE AND THEN GO THROUGH THAT LIST AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE WRITING REVIEWS / 4. WHAT I’M WRITING UP NOW I RECEIVED OVER 3 MONTHS AGO.

These are the facts. So if you think that you sent me something and you didn’t see it on the blog right away, it doesn’t mean I didn’t it. Of course, it doesn’t mean I liked it, but maybe one day you’re in for a surprise. Now I know we’re not Pitchfork, or (the) Fader but goddamnit we have integrity. We like our shit small because small means we get to do things our fucking way.

Now I’ve been nagged and pleaded with. I’ve even been offered money to write reviews on terrible, terrible bands. But nagging is an art. You can’t really do it unless you write the goods to back it up. Lore City has been on my nutz for a minute and rightfully so. I’m the moron who took this long to tell you about them.

As they blend an unpolished monument into trip-hop inspired monolithic music, they hold onto the core values that made acts like Portishead so rapid to please the pleasure centers. While a track like ‘Gone Past’ will draw you into an ocean of sound that raptures the soul from an unforgiving internet sphere of “look at me”, tracks like ‘For You’ remind you the humility that resides behind the most important music, begging for you to “look at me”. Nothing it out of place throughout Kill Your Dreams, yet nothing sits comfortably, as spacing remains a consistent drama unfolded only by repetitive observation. @Dingusonmusic

Can’t Say Yes [Sophie and The Bom Boms]

NYLON SAID SOME SHIT ABOUT THIS BEING CATCHY, COMPARING IT TO SOME HUGE POP STARS, BUT FUCK THEM; NYLON HAS HAD STICK UP ITS VAGINA FOR YEARS AND COULDN’T BE BOTHERED TO DO ANYTHING MORE THAN REGURGITATE SOME “IF YOU LIKE THIS, THAN YOU’LL LIKE THIS” BULLSHIT. SOPHIE AND THE BOM BOM’S IS ON IT’S OWN. AND THEY BETTER NOT BE HOPING TO GET MORE EMPTY PRAISE HERE. BECAUSE WHAT REALLY SETS THIS UP HIGH FOR THE VOCAL DUNK IS THE TWO SHAKING DUDES IN THE BACK WHO I ASSUME PRODUCED THE TRACK (AKA THE BOM BOMS?). CATCHY, SURE WHATEVER, IT IS. LIKE BRITTANY SPEARS? I DON’T FUCKING THINK SO. @DINGUSONMUSIC

Sea Turtle EP [Sunset Diver]

10312437_355420557955134_1790390301578399653_nSea Turtle EP by Sunset Diver   (Brooklyn, New York)

If you’ve been keeping up with the emerging Capitalist Records, than you’ve come to recognize a certain stylized voice that shines through on their records. The latest is no exception. Where Sea Turtle EP offers Yo La Tengo type vibrations (c. and then nothing turned itself inside-out), they do so with a lack of care that translates better in 2014 than it ever would have in 1999. Sometimes it seems like the band doesn’t even want to be there. Sometimes, throughout the 4 track, it seems like they’re doing you this favor; and they are. Put on Sunset Diver and m.e.l.t. @Dingusonmusic

La Grande Paura [El Xicano]

IN THIS SITUATION I CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER IF I’M GOING TO LOOK LIKE A MORON TELLING YOU ABOUT A SONG WHERE I CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE LYRICS. BUT FUCK IT, ANY LANGUAGE BESIDES ENGLISH SOUNDS COOL TO ME AND THIS SONG HAS THE WAVEY VIBES TO BACK IT UP ALL THE WAY FROM TURIN, ITALY. @DINGUSONMUSIC

Clocks (Patrick Pizzorni and Bryant Mauri Remix)

10675782_635953716518564_5970971215551390517_n‘Clocks (Patrick Pizzorni and Bryant Mauri Remix)’ by Kat Dahlia   (Miami Beach, Florida)

Remixes come in all shapes and sizes. The only shape or size that really matters is the awesome size. Go big or go home. Take something that’s catchy and make it inclined. Patrick Pizzorni and Bryant Mauri take ‘Clocks’ by Kat Dahlia and turn it into what it should have originally been: a track fueled by crack (forget the cocaine). Dhalia seems like she’s about “dat lyfe” but when you put the song side by side with the jet fired version we feature here, you realize how not about “dat lyfe” she really is. That shit’s the pussy version, this shit’s the tops. I can feel my fat thighs wobble to this. So says Dingus. So says the world. @Dingusonmusic

[Hot From the Dingus] Evil Arrows Setting a High Bar for Themselves with Broken Heart Police

1526386_431961960264406_926113379_n

Nothing makes me happier than being the first one to flag something for you. This time it’s Evil Arrows’ ‘Broken Heart Police’. It’s here as the first single from their upcoming EP 4 – a simple title for a band doing so much to a simple sound. That’s not to say that their doing so much with a simple sound, but rather to it.

As they bend and mesh the traditional expectations of their timbre with a brutalist take on good ol’ melody, Evil Arrows penetrates past the veil of what they expect from their listener in creating something that remains consistently catchy without being dominant or overpowering.

Their influences are too many to name and to prominent to make comparisons to without setting expectations. Again, not that these expectations would be unmatched, but that the ‘Broken Heart Police’ stands on its own two legs without the support of its precedent. @Dingusonmusic

No Sunglasses [Whitewash]

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECT WHITEWASH TO LOOK LIKE. SOUNDS HAVE LOOKS AND LOOKS HAVE SOUNDS AND THIS SOUND AND THIS LOOK GO TOGETHER LIKE JAM AND JAM. IT DOESN’T TRY TO BE ANYTHING BUT ITSELF AND REMAINS COMPLETELY LOVABLE IN DOING SO. @DINGUSONMUSIC
