From our friends at HoZac Records:

Like the eardrum-shattering noise pop icons that came before them, Woven Bones blaze their own trail of lascivious loudness and controlled snarl that’s just what the world needs right now, and the perfect soundtrack to your screwed-up summer. The debut album, In and Out and Back Again delivers nine heart-stabbing hits that just keep hitting back, so without further hesitation, we give you the debut album that explodes heads on contact, by your new favorite band, Woven Bones.

Fresh: Mahjongg’s “Miami Knights”

Mahjongg courtesy K Records


We normally associate Miami with a certain fictional drug lord who snorted a shit load of coke before introducing us to his “little friend”, oh and there’s that really awful awesome song by Will Smith. Ahh, welcome to Miami. But what South Beach really needs is a little chivalry. Enter Mahjongg’s first single “Miami Knights” from their sophomore effort, The Long Shadow of the Paper Tiger (out July 20th On K Records). A vibrant cut from the band’s unique brand of tranc-y, robo-pop, the song kinda makes us feel like that drug lord post-snort, ‘cept without all the murderous intent.

Download “Miami Knights” here

Deer Tick on Letterman Tonight, Kings of Leon Curse Tomorrow?

That’ll all make sense in a few minutes. Read on.

Inside our June issue (LIVE NOW at sundaemag.com), we first introduced you to The Black Dirt Sessions, the latest from alt-country crew Deer Tick (plus hear them now on our June playlist at 8tracks.com/sundaemag). Tonight the band makes their network television debut on “The Late Show with David Letterman” (11:35/10:35pm c on CBS). We’ve all witnessed late night’s mysterious power to catapult a band (literally) overnight (i.e. Kings of Leon performing “Use Somebody” on Saturday Night Live; the first of many irritating times we’d hear that song). So check ’em out tonight so we don’t have to rub your nose in it later. Psst — Hear “Christ Jesus” on our June playlist here.

Venice is Sinking

When Venice is Sinking popped into Savannah about a month ago, we went to see them on a whim, not having heard many songs. By the end of the night, though, we were captivated, staying up well past our bedtime to hear them finish their set.

The band’s newest album, Sand & Lines, was recorded at the landmark Georgia Theatre in Athens, Ga. Since then, the Theatre has burned down, but the album remains as a testament not only to what this one band can do (which is a thing to behold in and of itself), but to the quality of music coming out of the collaborative scene in the college town.

For the band, their time spent recording Sand & Lines was a decided departure from their previous album, AZAR, which was created on weekend trips to a studio in Charlotte, South Carolina. Recorded in the empty theatre in their hometown, using only two mics and with musicians spread across the space, Sand & Lines is a haunting album that’s almost disarmingly honest at times.

We’ll have a full Q&A with the band in July’s issue of Sundae. But in the meantime, check out “Falls City” off Sand & Lines:

Falls City by Venice is Sinking

And if you’re in Savannah, come out to the Co-Laboratory (631 East Broad) tonight around 8:00 to see them, Little Tybee and Adron for yourself. Just $6!
