Rebuilder – “Rock & Roll In America”
The days are getting longer so you’ll have more time to read and re-read the RECORD OF THE WEEK blog!
REBUILDER started in 2013, hit the ground running and haven’t looked back! They write songs about about life, how much it sucks and how much fun they have in Boston or wherever their van takes them. You can get ‘Rock & Roll In America’ from PANIC STATE RECORDS and hopefully they still have some of those ‘Cyan’ and ‘Mustard’ AsideBside versions left, or even better, go check out REBUILDER on tour starting today in Philadelphia!!!
———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
5 billion years after the last great extinction, the galaxy Andromeda spins headlong into the Milky Way with three intergalactic travelers in tow. Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor (Mastodon), Guitarist/keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda, Gaylord) and Keyboardist/guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered, Scarab) are said pioneers, the space wizards of psychedelic soundscapes where organic drums collide with synthetic keys to create an infinite transmission from an event horizon. They go by ARCADEA and their otherworldly brand of psyche-electric, synth-driven, metallic madness sounds alien yet somehow familiar. Find out more over at RELAPSE RECORDS!!!

Despite being a band since the mid 90’s, THE IMPROBABLES are here with their debut LP, ‘Object To Be Destroyed’, out now on HIDDEN VOLUME RECORDS! The album’s title comes from a piece by Surrealist and Philly native, Man Ray and is a mixture of garage rock, RnB and psych.

The legendary JAD FAIR has teamed up with NORMAN BLAKE (Teenage Fanclub) and Japanese mainstays TENNISCOATS to create some of the most endearing content you’re likely to experience outside of an internet cat video. ‘Raindrops’ is fiercely adorable. Containing 85 minutes of music on limited edition double LP, this is simple, charming, acoustic pop at it’s most feral. TENNISCOATS’ playful melodies and vocal coos have seemingly harnessed JAD FAIR’S uninhibited style, resulting in some distinctively special songs that are fragile, and oozing with positivity. Outsider art has never sounded so cute. Make your way to JOYFUL NOISE RECORDINGS for more info…
SUN AIRWAY is the recording project of Jon Barthmus. With a live band that had a rotating cast of 4 or 5 members and elaborate light/projection shows, SUN AIRWAY toured extensively in the US and Europe before becoming a studio-only project over the last few years. The music has always been about mixing intricately layered samples and timeless vocal melodies. With only a few copies left over at the SLYVINYL website, this tri-color stripped record and jacket are truly a work of art…
SELL THE HEART RECORDS started in 2010 in the SF Bay Area in hopes of helping out the local music scene and releasing albums by many of the local artists. “Everybody Wants Somewhere” is the 10th album released through SELL THE HEART RECORDS, and showcases 21 artists across multiple genres, each covering a classic FUGAZI song. The album pays tribute to the band, but also serves as a vehicle for raising funds for a very cool non-profit based in San Francisco called TAKING IT TO THE STREETS, who have been working with the city’s homeless population since 2015. All profits made from the sale of this record will be donated to them. You better hurry if you want one of those ‘Bone’ and ‘Bronze’ AsideBside versions!
