Obsession of the Week: Dawes

dawes1
The obsession for the week is Dawes,  a Los Angeles-based 4 piece, who recently released there self-titled debut album on the label Record Collection. I’ve been a huge fan of this band for sometime, and word has definitely been spreading about their live shows, which have become packed with their growing following.

Download my favorite song by them below, and you can purchase the album on iTunes. They are heading to
SXSW next week, and then they will tour the US, opening for Jenny Lewis.

Check out the dates after the cut.

Obsession of the Week: Princeton

The obsession of the week is Los Angeles-based trio Princeton. They released their newest recording The Bloomsbury EP over the summer. Consisting of songs focused on key members of the influential Bloomsbury collective that existed in the early 20th century, it’s been on heavy rotation since I got it.  The album features songs that stick in your head for some time after hearing, and who doesn’t want to hear a song about Virginia Woolf?

Catch them at Spaceland on Dec 27th with Bodies of Water. Here’s a song to sample from them:

LA Event: Jenny Lewis Kicks off Acid Tongue Tour at Spaceland

Jenny Lewis started her tour last night in Los Angeles with a very intimate performance at Spaceland. As you can imagine, the show sold out relatively quickly in advance, but a large number of people showed up at the door clamoring to get in, as the line continued to grow around the block.

The set list showcased many new songs from her new album Acid Tongue, which is out on 9/23. We here at Threadtrend have had it on constant rotation for the last few weeks. The new album is definetly more adventurous as the songs are all over the map, including an epic 8-minute song called the “Last Messiah.”

The new songs went over very well with the crowd, and they were also treated to choice cuts off of Rabbit Fur Coat along with a cover of “Love Hurts.” Los Angeles fans will also be treated to another very intimate performance as Jenny Lewis & company take the stage at The Echo for another SOLD OUT show.

Dont fret if you didn’t get tickets to these two very special shows as there is another Los Angeles stop scheduled at the Orphuem Theatre on Oct 30th.

Built to Spill Plays the Troubador. I Want More Album Shows.

Built to Spill, darlings of the 90s Indie Rock scene, played a sold out show at the Troubador in LA last night. It’s always good to see an old favorite, but the exciting part was that they played their iconic album “Perfect from Now On” in its entirety. Plus a few other fan favorites. As expected, the show was full of energy, and the audience was completely in love from start to finish. Lots of singing along.

Here’s a song from the album: “Made up Dreams”

They’ll be repeating the performance next friday at day one of All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York. Tortoise will be performing “Millions Now Living Will Never Die” along with Thurson Moore, who’s doing “Psychic Hearts.”

I love this phenomenon of playing a full album, and I’m glad acts are now touring the concept. It’s such a rebellion against the iTunes culture we’re living in, where the single is king. Of course, it’s also totally nostalgic, too, and I’ve got no problem with that. Plus, it takes the guess work out of seeing a band you used to really like–if you know they’re going to play an album you love from start to finish, you don’t have to worry about hearing any dreaded new stuff. A good example of this is Liz Phair doing Exile in Guyville. That album is pretty much my all-time favorite, but I don’t want to see her play most of the junk she did after that.

So, now I’m itching for the Sundays to tour, playing “Reading, Writing & Arithmetic” or Bratmobile with “Pottymouth” or Pulp with “Different Class” or Jawbreaker. with “24 Hour Revenge Therapy”… I could go on and on.
