Wednesday, September 12th 2012: The False Alarms

TONIGHT’S SHOW ($8):

  • There’s nothing benign about The False Alarms and this is not a test.  This is real deal lo-fi rock.  It leans toward the indie at times, but by that we mean 90s indie like Sebadoh, not the overly precious twee type.  The songs are pop at their core, packaged well and delivered smoothly.  Listen here.

  • Wailin’ Storms should write the soundtrack for a mid-budget independent film featuring astronauts stranded in the wild wild west because of a rift in space and time.  With lots of scorpions and living on the lam.  They’ve got just the right amount of reverb, loneliness, empty space and lostness.  Plus we’d like to watch a flick like that.  Perfect for fans of Sergio Leone and Black Heart Procession.  Listen here.
  • Sharkmuffin have at least one girl in their band and they’ve made one sloppy reverb-drenched recording at a rehearsal and you can listen to it here.

  • Swerve opens.  Or else The Sonic Blue.  They’re the same guys— a two-piece making rock and roll in the vein of BRMC, Doves, Oasis or Brian Jonestown with a little grunge injected here and there.  We’re just not sure what they’re called.  We’re not sure they’re sure, either.  Listen here.
