Ever wondered what Slint would sound like if they had made music for a Super Nintendo? Well here you go.
Xerxes has released their new song and video entitled February this week via the NoiseCreep site. NoiseCreep got it a little wrong and thought it was Calvin in the video I guess (based on the blog post title, maybe I’m reading it wrong though), but everything else is on point. Max filmed and edited the footage and it looks fantastic. The song should be coming out on Xerxes’ upcoming full length release on No Sleep Records entitled ‘Our Home Is A Deathbed’. The new record is scheduled to be released on March 31st. Some more info on the upcoming release as well as pre-order/merch info is available on the No Sleep blog.
Also available now is Xerxes’ live set from the Sound & Fury Fest in California last year. It’s available for free from the band’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/xerxesband.
Oh, and they’ve also got a new site/Tumblr blog going that they’re updating from tour right now (which extra dates were added to I think, go check out the site for more info).
Aaron Osbourne (formerly of Plows and State Champion, among others) is the main dude behind the wheel of Life Partner, and this new batch of bummed-out, midwestern grunge folk is known simply as “Dogs.” Low-fi not giving a fuck fills up the new release on Sophomore Lounge Records newest cassette release, scheduled to make it’s small run appearance on January 24th. However, it’s possible that some copies could be available at the Chestnut House this weekend. Life Partner will be appearing with Savages, Mote (1st show I believe, ex Mountain Asleep among others), a Debauchees. The show is Sunday night (Jan 22nd) and presented by the Cropped Out collective. Five bucks, 7pm, bring a couple of extra bucks for the tape and maybe bring a box of doughnuts for Aaron.

I can’t lie, I watched Mike almost the entire video. It’s not really unplugged, but you’re not likely to ever hear Coliseum so… quiet again.
Louisville rock outfit Coliseum incorporates everything from explosive metal to incisive D.C. punk in its power-chord, loud-quiet tunes. TOC had the band in the office for one of our least unplugged Live at TOC sessions. Here’s “Waiting.”….
