Tiger Waves - Fireworks
This duo - Reid Comstock and James Marshall - emailed me about their long-distance collaboration project that has birthed what they deem “cosmic surf-rock.” They add that they’re “sort of a bizarre combination of Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys and anything from the Elephant 6 collective” which, duh, are as irresistable as influences to me as honey to a fly. I love the segue into “Ghost” on this set of new demos, so if you listen there let it ride.
Sufjan Stevens - ‘Pleasure Principle’ (performed live on WNYC Soundcheck) accompanied by Bryce Dessner of the National.
High Pop - Drip from the Sea
Keeping with the tradition of playing virtually every Seattle area music festival in the past year, Yuni in Taxco will help kick off Saturday’s festivities at the Capitol Hill Block Party by playing the Vera Stage at 3pm.
“Their warm, carefree, sound compliment lyrics that tend toward the mutable beautifully, and the twists and turns from pop to ballad make for an exceptional musical landscape.” -Three Imaginary Girls
Also taking the stage Saturday will be national touring acts TV on the Radio, Handsome Furs, Les Savy Fav and Best Coast as well as Seattle favorites Beat Connection, Seapony and The Young Evils.
