Gaffa Tape Sandy - Beehive

| Keith
Sweetheart
I'm in the bathroom, waiting, for you to come and apologize to me

This morning I listened to Gaffa Tape Sandy's entire Spotify catalog, which consists of two EPs and a couple of singles, and I've been impressed. This is some fun stuff. I know hardly anything about them aside from that they make terrific and eclectic garage-punk music and, I assume based on their name, that they're British. I'm also guessing they're fantastic live, so hoping for a SXSW appearance. It was tough choosing a cut to feature, so I picked their latest, "Beehive". If you like out, here are a few other standouts for you to check out: "Transylvania", "Smart Dressed Guy" and "L'appel du Vide".

Upcoming Shows

Jay Reatard - Hammer I Miss You

| Keith
And every hour that passes
While I'm living in the dark
Reminds me when we saw the boys
Bending at the knees
Hammer
I miss you

It had been a little while since I'd listened to Jay Reatard, but last night, at the Japandroids / Cloud Nothing's show I heard "Hammer I Miss You" between sets. It was the second time in as many days and it's a terrific song. RIP Jay.

RIYL: Ty Segall, The Black Lips, King Tuff, Parquet Courts

Wavves, Cloud Nothings - Come Down

| Keith
Just to be something is hard enough
There's no defense, we're good enough
The world around you is barely there
There's something wrong creeping into your life
You do not notice, you do not care
There's something wrong creeping into your life

Tonight is the night! We're going to see Cloud Nothings and Japandroids! They're two of my favorite bands and I couldn't be more stoked. I thought of cueing up a song of one of their latest albums, as they're both stellar, but couldn't decide. Instead, here's one of the Wavves / Cloud Nothings collab, No Life for Me, which is also stellar.
