Urethra Franklin - “Halloween (tape)”

I post this every year, but it still gives me the creeps.  Enjoy some stoner rock surrounding a backwoods Smoky Mountains sermon on tape with Urethra Franklin, aka a project by Jay Lindsey of Bearstorm. Listen to tales of Samhain and demons amidst heavy electric guitars and varying rhythms.  Additional musicians include Kelsey Miller and Patrick DeRoche of Bearstorm and David Hughes of The Hotdamns.

Headless Mantis - Y’Sneak

Headless Mantis has all the psychedelic sounds you’ve been aching for in a little sneak peek of the band’s upcoming release, Y’Sneak.  Two tracks of noisy electronic post-rock wallow in reverb and drip with grunge devices.  The sound conjures images of Pavement, Sonic Youth, and Hum especially in “Event Organizer.”  The duo of drummer Tim Othy (cute) and Dev Ham on guitar and vocals sounds larger than what you’d expect.  The album will most likely be on Ghost House Recordings, so stay tuned.

Headless Mantis also just released a live set from the “Untitled Music Festival”:

Stream Inter Arma: The Cavern on Pitchfork Advance

Inter Arma have outdone themselves with new album The Cavern.  Check out the trippy underground visuals [you know, stalactites (because they hold on tight to the ceiling so they dont fall) and stalagmites] while streaming the whole thing over at Pitchfork.  You can also choose to gaze adoringly (or menacingly) at a photo of the band should you like things like dudes, hair, and camo shorts.  Anyway, this single track album brings to mind the doom of Cough and the epic progressive compositions of Candlemass.
