New L.A. Witch – Baby in Blue Jeans

L.A. WITCH - Baby in Blue Jeans (Official Video)

From L.A. Witch, out now on Suicide Squeeze.

Oh man, while their last single we covered (“Drive Your Car”) was a badass rave-up garage stomper, “Baby in Blue Jeans” is a slow burner with hints of early Spaceman 3 or some of the trippier elements of the Brian Jonestown Massacre. It’s psychedelic without employing any of the cliches associated with that descriptor. And now it’s got a gritty video to fit the mood.

New Death Valley Girls video: (One Less Thing) Before I Die

Video: Death Valley Girls – “(One Less Thing) Before I Die”

Death Valley Girls "(One Less Thing) Before I Die" (Official Video)

Directed by Kansas Bowling. From Darkness Rains out today on Suicide Squeeze.

On March 24, 2018, “Mad” Mike Hughes successfully launched himself into the sky in a homemade, steam-powered rocket. Elon Musk’s got nothing on this daredevil.

Director Kansas Bowling was there and the new Death Valley Girls video combines her footage from the day with additional footage of ritual sacrifice and mourning. Everybody grieves differently. Kansas Bowling does it with a fish.

Bonnie Bloomgarden said, “We heard of this guy that wanted to shoot himself into the sky in a home made, steam-powered rocket ship to prove that the Earth was flat. Kansas Bowling asked us if we wanted to go film the launch. At first we thought we didn’t care at all about flat earthers, or the flat earth theory, but then we met Mad Mike Hughes. Mad Mike is an amateur rocket scientist, lawyer, limo driver, dare devil, Guinness Book world record alum, conspiracy theorist, and is now running for governor of the state of Nevada. After going to three launches in the desert – two attempted, and one successful – we learned a lot. While we don’t agree with his politics at all, we are glad we met him, and that we learned one more thing before we die.”

You can see more footage from the launch on YouTube and some of it even includes cameos by Bowling and the band.

“(One Less Thing) Before I Die” features guitars that sound like they could’ve come straight from Sonic Smith and Wayne Kramer. And that’s high praise.

Minus the Bear – Highly Refined Pirates

Minus the Bear – Highly Refined Pirates (Suicide Squeeze Records)

Hilarious song titles like “Hey, Wanna Throw Up,” Get Me Naked 2: Electric Boogaloo,” and “I Lost All My Money at the Cock Fights” might make you think you’ve picked up the Emo equivalent to Weird Al Yankovic. Think again. It’s more of the tried and true loud/soft dynamics and disjointed time signatures that have made Emo the Muzak of Generation Y. Not a bad record but not nearly as intriguing as the song titles.
