Midnight Television - S/T (Beer on the Rug 2011)

Removed Buy

Midnight Television c11 offers late-nite rides into a decontextualized world of advertising muzak and 80s point-and-click adventure game wizardry. Let the looping bass funk rhythms and Tanqueray-on-the-rocks chilled keys lull you to slumber on your reclined Lazyboy. Feel free to keep filling your glass — it’s after dark and there’s nothing but infomercials and re-runs as far as your clicker can take you. - Beer on the Rug

Naked on the Vague "Abstract Figures" Video


Sisters Jessica and Jennifer Clavin—formerly of Los Angeles based girl (and one boy)-band Mika Miko—have returned as Bleached. “Think of You” sounds like The Misfits and says something that sounds small but is actually big: that it’s scary to tell a boy that you love him because it’s hard—probably impossible in the long run—to guarantee that affection is mutual. It does this in less than three minutes, and when it’s over, you immediately want to relearn the lesson. (The video Jennifer directed for No Age‘s “Goat Hurt” in ’08 is also worth a re-visiting). Bleached will release their new Carter 7″ on Art Fag Recordings on July 19th.

Hypocrite In A Hippy Crypt

Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt is a new band out Now on Gulcher records. A label that has spanned decades and produced everything from John Cougar Mellencamp to Kurt Vile. I spoke with Evan Winger of H.I.A.H.C. and he describes the band as Indie Pop Nostalgia, which is not far from the truth. Tweaker in the Park can be found here.

Edibles - Mind Fry

"Dewey Mahood temporarily steps outside his role in Eternal Tapestry to pick up his dub reigns in Edibles. Following two tapes on Not Not Fun and Stunned, Mahood uleashes a humid slice of psych-dub, Other Minds Meet Inner Space for DNT. There are hints of his Tap-era guitar excursions but the record mostly sits in the same swampy waters that have made Peaking Lights' 936 such a staple this summer. The record feeds hungrily on groove, elastic bass and rhythm with Dusty Dybvig and Ben Bogard picking up live drum and 70's drum machine duties respectively. If the gooves are wearing thin on 936and you're anxiously waiting for that next Sun Araw fix, it's highly recommended that you get Edibles on the turntable as soon as possible." - Raven Sings the Blues
