SINGAPORE : I'm Waking Up To... The Psalms - Johnny Mnemonic Fiercely upfront and dizzyingly discordant, The Psalms have been shaking things up in the music scene here, with growing expectations on their upcoming debut album. The band's Ishmael's Wishlist EP offers a raw glimpse of things to come, with its arresting spiral of chaotic rock delivered at breakneck speeds. All donations through the EP's digital download on Bandcamp will benefit Acres, [...]
Now, let me preface this with an admission that I haven't listened to a single song by The Wake, which I'm guessing will be tantamount to sacrilege, being that I'm Scottish and all, and The Wake are all Scottish and shit too. But, just because I'm from Scotland doesn't mean I should be expected to know everything my homeland exports, but I will say that canned Haggis is pretty good but nothing compared to the real deal. Anyway, for Record Store Day today, Captured Tracks , the label that's released recent gems by Craft Spells , Dum [...]

This Friday, a TMAP favorite, Plastic Flowers , will be in town (visiting from Florida) to play a show at The Delancey. Don't miss this chance to see him perform! His music is dreamy and late-night romantic, youthful, spontaneous, open to the idea of serendipitous love affairs and missed connections. It's beautiful yet wary, the kind of music Captured Tracks would die for. Listen to a track below: MP3: Plastic Flowers "Drive Me Home" Openers Dream Affair [...]
Split between the UK and Greece, Plastic Flowers release 7" 'White Walls Painted Black'. More at plasticflowers.bandcamp.com .
While retaining the dreamy quality of the original 1987 recording of The Wake's " Plastic Flowers " (from the Something That No One Else Could Bring EP), Beach Fossils recorded a beautiful cover of the song for the Gruesome Flowers: A Tribute to The Wake 73. The 73 will also include a cover by Wild Nothing (another lovely band of the hazy genre and good friends of Beach Fossils) and it will be released via Captured Tracks on Record Store Day! Oh yeah, save the date: April 16th, folks! Listen to the [...]
Beach Fossils covered The Wake's "Plasic Flowers" for Gruesome Flowers: A Tribute To The Wake , a 73 release from Captured Tracks . It also features a cover from Wild Nothing. The song will be released on Record Store Day. Beach Fossils continue to impress me more and more with each new release. They're really coming along quite nicely. This cover of "Plasic FLowers" is not different. This is good stuff folks. I've never heard the original, but now I'm interested. That's a job well done, for sure. Stream the cover [...]

This week's installment of "Playing on Prefix" -- in which the Prefix staff waxes poetic about the new music we've been enjoying -- is now available on KCRW , and it's highlighting two of the electronic underground's finest acts. First up is Automelodi, the Italo disco-tinged post-punk moniker of Montreal's Xavier Paradis and one of the standout acts in Wierd Records' impressive stable. "Buanderie Jazz," one the most memorable tracks from Automelodi's self-titled LP, has gotten the remix treatment by Floridian dream-popper Sean Earl Beard, better known on the blogger circuit as Plastic Flowers. It's an indelible, instantly catchy [...]
Plastic Flowers : White Walls Painted Black - Video
Being a Floridian myself and having been to Tallahassee, I know what Sean Earl Beard aka Plastic Flowers may weathered. Most would picture warm beaches and fun in the sun. But what they don't know about north Florida is that through most of the late fall, winter and then spring can be quite gruesome. It's [...]
