Eureka the Butcher, solo pseudonym of Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez (also of Zechs Marquise and The Mars Volta) announces the forthcoming release of his debut album. The recording, Music For Mothers is dedicated to the multi-instrumentalist’s mother Frances Sarah Rodriguez-Lopez who passed away last year. The album will be released via Rodriguez Lopez Productions on May 28, 2013 - stream “Here Comes Eureka B” below:
Regarding the album, Marcel writes:
“This record is for my mom because she is the reason why I started playing the piano. She told me that it was great that I wanted to play drums, but if I played the piano, I could create music and play to a room full of people by myself. I didn’t start playing drums for another 4 years, and I wouldn’t start playing piano for another 7 or so. That’s when i started making electronic music. Making music under the Eureka name gives me that ability: to make music and perform by myself. I, however, do not perform alone. Sadah Luna performs with me because of my love for her dance and her love for my music. She completes the live show.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Kevin Parker’s band Tame Impala, thanks to that catchy tune Elephant. Assuming you’ve missed this release due to school/work overload, I thought I’d throw something different and just as catchy your way that Kevin Parker and Melody Prochet(Kevin Parker’s girlfriend) worked on together.
Blake Fleming, the ex-Mars Volta bandmate, needs your help kickstarting the vinyl release of his solo project album titled “Times Up” that features percussion as the instrumental star of the album. It’s an all percussion album that makes for a pretty radical time. If you’re into radical times, then check out the album on his bandcamp where you can download the album free or throw a little extra cash his way. Remember, every penny counts! To kickstart his project, you’ll need to donate 15 dollars or more. If you donate, he’ll throw in a limited edition vinyl and much more with every tiered price range!
First of all, you should all know you can count on me to bring some interesting new music to the table and boy do I have a treat for you. If you haven’t yet come across the newly formed band by frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala of The Mars Volta named Anywhere, get ready for some strange, yet beautiful acoustic psychedelic/progressive rock. Cedric teams up with guitarist Christian Eric Beaulieu of Triclops!, and bassist Mike Watt of fIREHOSE/Minutemen/The Stooges to make up this great 3 piece band. Cedric takes control of drums and vocals while Christian Beaulieu handles guitar duties and Mike Watt carries the bass through this finely crafted self titled album. They also welcomed guest appearances on a few songs from the likes of Rachel Fannan Ex-Sleepy Sun member and Toshi Kasai of Big Business. The album flows wonderfully from Pyramid Mirrors to Infrared Moses. I’d say this album is more of an intrumental record. So if you’re not that big on instrumental, you may only take a liking to a couple songs on this album, but nonetheless still enjoy them very much! My recommended tracks: Rosa Rugosa, Dead Golden West, and Pyramid Mirrors. Stream the entire album at Vice’s music site Noisey. And don’t forget that you heard about it from the cuckoo’s nest!! ;)
BBNG(badbadnotgood) are a 3 piece “Jazz Fusion” band from… it doesn’t matter, because they’re rad and can be from Timbuktu for all I care!! Recently BBNG had a little jam session with Tyler The Creator from Odd Future, and it went really good for a rap jam sesh. Tyler rapped out Seven for the first set, and jammed out Fish on the piano for the second. Let me just say that, It’s really refreshing to see a rapper with actual talent perform live and play a musical instrument! While watching these videos I noticed that BBNG used some Death Grips tracks on both vids which is really cool, and I just wanted to point that out so the grips can get some recognition ;) I bet you’d like to see these sessions! Wouldn’t you?! Well here it is… Oh and don’t forget to subscribe to the Youtube channel when you’re done, for some more BBNG vids!
The Fall Of Troy have been broken up for a little over a year now and their sophomore LP Doppelganger released on August 16th, 2005, still manages to sellout on their website not even a couple months later from being reissued through Equal Vision Records sometime around August 2011. Although they are not everybody’s cup of tea due to the “screamo” aspect of the music, they were still a very talented band from the creative/experimental instrumentation perspective. If I absolutely had to muster up some sort of genre for them I’d have to say they’re along the lines of some semi progressive/experimental/hardcore/punk rock band. They were merely a 3 piece band but you wouldn’t be able to tell just by listening to the music. The Fall Of Troy recorded Doppelganger at the tender age of 19! That’s pretty good for being as technical as they are, huh? The best part about listening to the Doppelganger LP
Stella Mozgawa(drums),Jenny Lee Lindenberg(bass,vocals), Theresa Wayman(guitar,vocals), And Emily Kokal(guitar,vocals).
Warpaint is an “art rock” based band(according to the wiki) from Los Angeles. The band consists of four women who can jam like no ones business (The names are mentioned below the picture from left to right). The song of the day “Elephants” off the Exquisite Corpses EP, was recorded from 07-08 and released on October 6th 2009 with some help by the Froosh(John Frusciante of The Red Hot Chili Peppers), Josh Klinghoffer (also a member of the present Red Hot Chili Peppers lineup) and Shannyn Sossaman(drummer at the time). I must say that no one should overlook Warpaint, because they are very amazing musicians and deserve everybody’s attention. Their psychedelic sound is what really captured my interest about this band, hopefully you like the song and check out their latest album The Fool released October 25, 2010. Enjoy a stream of the song of the day!
