Temples – Shelter Song

templesband

You might need to listen closely to the intro of Shelter Song by Temples, lest you think you’ve accidentally pressed play on Donovan’s Sunshine Superman. That’s not a criticism of the track, by the way. Quite the contrary. Shelter Song takes the best parts of mid period psychedelia and wraps them around some solid songwriting.

James Vincent McMorrow’s sophomore Post Tropical LP is definitely a departure from his debut. The voice is still unmistakably his, but the instrumentation is lush, hazy and sweeping. The album’s first single, Gold, typifies this new direction.

Dr. Dog and Saint Rich are getting ready to start a two-month-long tour together. In anticipation of the jaunt, they’ve decided to release the free Casual Freefall EP. It includes four exclusive tracks, with both bands covering each other once.

Peggy Sue – Idle

In anticipation of their third album, Choir of Echoes, moody British rockers Peggy Sue have released a new single. Idle begins inconspicuously enough – with sparse instrumentation and slightly understated vocals – before kicking into gear and allowing the rhythm section to take the lead. Choir of Echoes is out Jan. 29 from Yep Roc.
