Long time friends G. Love and Jack Johnson have teamed up to make a special album to be released on Record Store Day. "Early Rising" is the first single released off of Blood Shot and Blues but it's a tune that G. Love has played in the past. G has an affinity for releasing countless unreleased songs and videos online for his fans so one would have to guess the the special 103 vinyl will have a few more maybe familiar songs on it. Head on over to Rolling Stone to get [...]
Nervous Nellie 's Gloves EP is out now.
Lines out now on Underwater Peoples Records.
During a pivotal scene in American Psycho, Christian Bale's character manically waxed poetic about the music of Huey Lewis & The News , declaring "Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost." It was that album that propelled the Bay Area-based band into stardom, spawning four Top 10 singles - [...]
Sometimes the simplistic innocence of a song really brings home where you are in life, or at least where you might want to go. I can't explain that, but listening to this new song from Julian Lynch really exemplifies some sort of inner discovery. Perhaps it's the quirky bit of classical construction, or the quieted vocal that remains barely audible throughout. Whatever it is, this song is just flooring me right now; pretty sure I'm going to play it on repeat all night long. You can find this tune on his new album, [...]
From Julian Lynch's upcoming "Lines" LP out 3.26.13 on Underwater Peoples.
All-time favorite Julian Lynch gives us another glimpse of what to expect on his long-awaited Lines LP, with the release of a new song, "Gloves." In the latest track, Lynch weaves together verging cacophony and drowned-out vocals to deliver a two-and-a-half minute psychedelic folk gem. Listen to "Gloves" below, as well as his incredible first single "Carios kelleyi I." Lines is due out March 26th on Underwater Peoples . Pre-Order it HERE .
"Stepping Stone" - G. Love & Special Sauce (1997) "what was your real intention..."
If you're like me, Nervous Nellie's "Gloves" has been stuck in your head since first hearing it last week . "Gloves" is the first single of the band's newest EP (and the first music the band is releasing sans record label). The band recently expressed that they are as inspired by this new freedom as they are impatience: "Frustration is the key word in this business, and when we feel it is completely dead and nothing happens, that is when we seek fear. The feeling of “can we do this?”, that’s what we want!" That [...]
In the few press shots that have been dotted around the net, Sweden's Nervous Nellie look like some long-lost band from the late-eighties, who probably played a few shows with The Cure before disappearing for good. Funnily enough there is a hint of that bygone era in their songwriting, but the whole thing is brought to life with dazzling Phoenix -like synths and that irresistible pop charm that is seemingly implanted within Scandinavians during childhood. Seriously, the chorus of Gloves alone could make statues dance. The band release the five-track Gloves [...]
Winter. It has its charms. Cocoa, snow, getting drunk at home with a loved one and falling asleep in front of the TV. While many are not crazy about being cold, shoveling out their car, or toppling over on patch of black ice, perhaps the worst part of a winter is the feeling you are never going to be attractive again. After all, if winter clothes were designed to make you look gorgeous, brides would wear snorkel jackets and Uggs down the aisle. But fear not gentle reader, Rocker is here to save the day! We’ve [...]
Our introduction to Nervous Nellie came with the Swedish group's debut song for the U.S., "Gloves." It didn't take long to get us hooked. The chorus on that track is a Miike Snow-esque piece of pop brilliance, and it's just another example of what Swedish music does so well. The songwriting is on par with some of the most popular pop in the world, but it's also got an interesting twist. Instead of inflating things to the point of obvious and perfect, Nervous Nellie plays with negative space and a human touch, which allows even the most anthemic [...]
More music from Sweden for you all. It's not even worth bringing up the fact that the Swedes continue to dominate the music scene - it's common knowledge at this point. That being said, I'll obviously continue to bring it up every time I come across a new song from ... Read More
"Gloves" & "Disease" which come to us from Stockholm indie act Nervous Nellie are previewed here from the band's forthcoming "Gloves" EP. Each track offers a bit different look from NN, the more poppy "Gloves" is anthemic (incl. a chorus that is among 20132s best so far) while "Disease" is intense & severe (but still very hooky). Nervous Nellie are definitely a lot of Swedes you're going to want to keep an eye on in 2013. A+. Nervous Nellie ( Facebook [...]

On the first day of Christmas, Musical Fruitcake gave to me....a throwback song from the band The Glove. (Yes, it will happen every day) I found The Glove in....I want to say '92, maybe '93. It baffles me that it has taken this long for me to put them on a Fruitcake. The one album they released, Blue Sunshine, is a treasure trove of unique electro rock. It is safe to say that if you dig this track, download the whole album. You will not regret it. What do you want when you put Steve Severin and Robert [...]

Cela faisait un certain temps que nous n'avions plus de nouvelles de l'australien Yama Indra aka GLOVES . Heureusement pour nous, il n'est pas mort et mieux, il revient avec un nouveau remix pour le dernier single de Sun City , Horizon . C'est un remix qui annonce le début de l'été en Australie (pendant que nous nous les gelons dans l'hémisphère nord). Laissons-le le décrire pour nous : « Inspired by the last month of beach raves, boat parties, rooftop pools & balmy evenings » . Ca veut tout dire ! Mélange de disco et [...]
