BC - Mecha Caffeine
BC - Bounce

Time Pieces 2.5 (Songs From The Scrap Heap) is a quick lil' addendum/stopgap EP to BC's mammoth manifesto Time Pieces Trilogy (our little introduction to Time Capsule is HERE if you wanna recap a bit) and features more dark 'n' dirty cerebral themes of impending doom and decay as told by this hip hop freedom-fighter vocabulist. Plus! More eerie beat wonkiness courtesy of mad-scientist Mudd Buddha. For a bunch of conspiracy-theorists/sci-fi nerds, these weirdos sure can put together a dope recording.

Time Pieces 2.5 (Songs From The Scrap Heap) is available in its entirety as a FREE download, courtesy of BC. Click HERE to get it.

A Place To Bury Strangers

A Place To Bury Strangers - You Are The One
A Place To Bury Strangers - Mind Control

Here's the heavy, heavy follow-up to the pummelicious Onwards To The Wall teaser EP released a few months back. Remember? Well, in case you didn't, here's more noisy, shoe-gazy goodness... i.e.: more buzz and distortion and reverb-laden hymns by wall-of-sound rockers A Place To Bury Strangers.

Eternal Summers

Eternal Summers - Millions
Eternal Summers - You Kill

What is it about solid-yet-melodic, girlie-girl-fronted power-pop that always gets us so goddamned hot and bothered? Eternal Summers does a really great job of catering to this weirdo fetish of ours, ya know? Jimmie says, "Awww... This is pretty cute," but I think that's just him being his normal sarcastic-as-fuck self (it is rather adorable, though). To each his own, I guess... just don't miss 'em when they play with Crocodiles later next month.

* For the locals: Eternal Summers will be performing with Crocodiles on Saturday, July 21st at New World Brewery in Ybor City

Correct Behavior will be released on July 24th, courtesy of Kanine

The Hundred in the Hands

The Hundred In The Hands - Come With Me
The Hundred In The Hands - Keep It Low

We've talked up The Hundred In The Hands so much in the past that I'm afraid anything else we'd try to say about this arty dance-pop duo and their brand new booming Red Night full length would all come off as tiresome, repetitive babble. You'd prolly do just as well skimming over what was previously said: HERE, HERE, HERE, if yer really, truly interested. Hint: you should be.

Nak 1: Leave A Message MixTape

Nak 1 - Leave A Message MixTape

We've never posted up a mix that wasn't made exclusively by, or for, the Liquid Jesus crew before, but we're switching things up a bit 'cause top homie Nak 1 put together such a tasty collection of tracks for the dope-as-fuck Leave A Message exhibit (do yourself a favor and peep this one if you can) at the local Morean Arts Center that we figured it's about time we showed him a little bit of love on this one. He also bought us a round of drinks on Thursday. What a sweetheart.

The Leave A Message MixTape is available courtesy of Nak 1 and the Morean Arts Center. Full tracklist is available after the jump. Enjoy.

Sixo - Bling Coats (ft. Ceschi & Hologram Dagger)
Sixo - Rocker John (ft. Leif Kolt)

Beat-dabbler Sixo's newish Free Floating Rationales full length is a neato lil' collection of diverse hooks and meandering melodies, mysterious sampling and interesting instrumental tracks, and it features a ton of collaborators (like Awol One, Sole, Ceschi, Moka Only, and many more) helping to further round it out, all proper like.

Lorn - Mercy
Lorn - Ghosst(s)

We've shown a lot of love for Lorn and his creeping/menacing beats more than a few times now, so don't act all surprised when we tell you that, yes, Ask The Dust - the follow-up full length to our dark 'n' dirty fave Nothing Else - hits all the right spots with its heavy as hell and downright frightening sounds of pitch-black despair. Pop some downers and slip into the rumble on this one. Just don't let yourselves get all emotional, you little crybabies.

Rosko Taint

Rosko Taint - RIP Lucifer
Rosko Taint - Nothin' To Do (ft. Doc Ra & Ǥõ§ƪõŵ)
Rosko Taint - On Your Own

808x666 is only one of the many recordings in a rapidly growing series of turn-on-a-dime collections, one-off remixes, and singles of eclectic, all-over-the-place beats by mysterious producer/musician (and possible prophet) Rosko Taint (& co). What a weirdo. Think layers of woozy low-end/warbles/wobbles, backed by a set of solid beats and drunken, stream-of-consciousness-esque lyrical prowess.

Man Man: Tonight!

Man Man

Goody goody gumdrops! The Man Man men are in town to bring their bouncy, percussion-heavy quirk and mustachioed frantic antics to all y'all fine local peeps - this evening only - and with Anticon. affiliate weirdo/producer Raleigh Moncrief plus local spazz-bros Easybreezy rounding out the bill, I feel pretty good about saying that this raucous romp of a show is one that's not to be missed.

Man Man + Raleigh Moncrief & Easybreezy

Seafoam - Sarah

Seafoam is another example of shimmery, feel good bedroom pop with that appropriately airy, summertime-ish vibe that we've been diggin' on lately. (Pssst! This is the same gentleman who's behind the sounds of Brothertiger) This one got my attention with a delicious 'kinda like M83 on Xanax' description/tag... 'cause who doesn't appreciate M83? Or Xanax?

Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso

Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso - Bloody Murder
Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso - Public Enemy

Hey guys. Remember last night? Remember? Remember getting drunk offa shitty beer and mid-shelf whiskey, and all the while pining over ex-girls and breaking the fuck outta each other's knee-caps? What!? No? Well, er... neither do we... But what we do remember is listening to the new Blue Sky Black Death / Nacho Picasso collab (over and over and over again) and feelin' real good about ourselves while doing so... so, you know...

Exalted is a fucking favorite by default, (duh), and it's available via Nacho Picasso, m'kay?

Hot Sugar

Hot Sugar - The Kid Who Drowned At Summer Camp
Hot Sugar - #Mindcontrol

Nifty instrumentals and gorgeous swaths of quirky melodies (alternating back and forth between peals of slightly ominous ambience and majestic/soaring atmospherics) by weirdo beatmaker Hot Sugar, and it's all right here on Moon Money. This is a great lil' relaxing summertime listen - as soon as this goddamed rain lets up, of course - to bob your head to while swiggin' ice-cold adult bevies.

Liars - No. 1 Against The Rush
Liars - Brats

If you're even remotely familiar with Liars (and I hafta believe that anyone who peruses our picks on the reg probably will be) then you already know about the highly conceptualized quirk and self-imposed, genre-defying tendencies these Brooklyn boys have been cultivating throughout the slew of albums released over their decade-plus career. WIXIW continues on with the throw-fans-for-the-proverbial-loop, WTF stylistic shifts/switch-ups that characterize (and are, perhaps, the only consistency between) each and every new effort. Yes, naturally, we dig it.

Crocodiles - Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9)
Crocodiles - My Surfing Lucifer

Crocodiles have been a much-drooled-over fave since pretty much the very beginning (and then some) of this lil' Liquid Jesus experiment that we're in the middle of, so of course we're thrilled as fuck over any new material from these San Diego pop/new-wave/psych enthusiasts. Endless Flowers channels even more of that familiar twang and hard-to-describe throw-back nostalgic goodness that we fell for hard in the first place. So, yeah. Hooray for this one.

* For the locals: Crocodiles will be performing on Saturday, July 21st at New World Brewery in Ybor City

Endless Flowers will be released on June 5th, courtesy of French Kiss

YACHT: Tonight!


Tonight! Let's get weird with DFA-affiliated galactic disco-dance ensemble YACHT (and pals), in what promises to be a fun-filled, electro-pop performance of epic proportions. For real, we're excited. Peep our glowing recommendation of last year's Shangri-La full-length/manifesto HERE while you're preppin' your brain for this one.
