San Francisco dream-rock group Sporting Life released their full length LP, Rivalry, in January of which the excellent 2 minute surf-drenched first single, Tsunami, was picked for our feature on the Dose today.
The eleven tracks on Rivalry offer a tour of the band’s influences, from Tangerine Dream-inspired piano lines to a certain feeling of punk rock indignation, and back around to a Jesus and Mary Chain-esque layering of feedback and fuzz. The album was recorded in the band’s studio in San Francisco’s industrial Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood and mixed by Phil Manley of Trans Am at Lucky Cat Studio.
Noted Influences: Echo & The Bunnymen, Ride, Pavement, Galaxie 500

That RSS feed stirs to life and shakes the dust off its shoulders. A show starts downloading in your podcatcher. Hey, wait, that logo looks familiar. That voice sounds familiar! That’s right, gang!

This episode of awesome indie music invokes a retro fondness, whether it’s Gunship pulling you back into the 80s with their synthwave stylings, or Temples yanking you back to the 60s with their jangly guitars and reverb-laden melodies and instrumentation.

We recently stumbled upon the Brunswick Germany based band Fuzziebär over on BandCamp, where today’s feature was possibly best described by one of the many album purchasers as “Totally worth my neighbor wanting to fight me over how loud I play it“. The fuzzed out stoner-doom-rock track comes from their August 2015 release “Lach- und Krachgeschichten” which when plugged into the ol’ translator equates to “Laughter and noise Stories“.
As for their debut video ‘Party‘ posted here, which happens to be another track on the new album, the band recently posted a comment on Twitter a few weeks back to set the mood for those who have yet to experience: “The weather is cold and maybe it’s time for a nice cup of tea with a bunch of friends.” Enjoy their hallucinatory tea party below after the listen.Funny Ass Joke by Fuzziebär is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License Fuzziebär HypeMachine
A lunchtime recorded podcast this week, and another one featuring Edinburgh Man Junior as the cover star. He’s starting to get big enough to actually be useful now. Here he is shuffling snow. As I record this episode, with the sun streaming through the window in the middle of the day, it’s hard to believe there was even just a light dusting of snow a few days ago. That said, it’s still damn cold…
On today’s show… no tapes I’m afraid. But some great music from Leggy, The Mountain Goats, Tiger Waves and more.

“Some of us shook hands for the first time that day,” says band leader and vocalist Aaron Guest of the initial meeting in early 2010. Incorporating genres that not only include bluegrass, but also world, country, Celtic, reggae and rock into a cohesive sound might have been impossible if each member of Polecat hadn’t learned the rules before breaking them. The group is well-seasoned, having performed nearly 100 shows a year since its inception, but at that first meeting, Polecat didn’t even have a name.
The following five years saw Polecat release two full-length albums along with steady growth throughout the Northwest as each band member’s musical diversity allowed them to chameleon through an incredible variety of gigs and audiences. Now Polecat will hit the road for two weeks in March as direct support with Yonder Mountain String Band behind the release of a new Polecat album Into The Wind on March 11th. Polecat will then embark on a headlining tour supporting Into The Wind in April. [bio via fanatic]

Following on from the acclaimed eponymous debut album of 2014, the Julia/Spring 7″ single is another deep shot of Lowtide’s euphoric dream pop, released in July of this past year. Recorded in Melbourne by Matthew Hosking (VHS Dream), ‘Julia‘ was originally written and recorded in 1988 by the French band Asylum Party.
Driven by mechanical rhythms and buzz-saw guitar leads, the blissful dual vocals of Lucy Buckeridge and Giles Simon lend the Lowtide version a hazy glow that transcends the cold wave original. The video for this two-song release was directed by Jamieson Moore and can be found further below.Julia by Lowtide is licensed under a Attibution 3.0 Unported License Julia HypeMachine
