Recorded at K’s Dub Narcotic Studio and mixed by Calvin Johnson, it features the band’s mix of surf-pop, garage-rock, and early ’60s-style rock ‘n’ roll. You can now stream album track “Ride On”– a jangly, reverb-soaked jam– where it premiered with Guitar World, and share the track via Soundcloud.

The Shivas have shared stages with bands like Spiritualized, The Dandy Warhols, The Fresh & Onlys and La Luz, and just kicked off a North American tour that runs through the end of October.

On October 14, Eyelids release 854 on Burger Records/Jealous Butcher. The band have a collective history of creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters. These longtime Portland, Oregon collaborators were not only the principal instrumentalists for Robert Pollard’s post Guided By Voices band Boston Spaceships for over eight releases, but they have also worked with Stephen Malkmus, The Decemberists, Elliott Smith, Sam Coomes of Quasi, Black Prairie, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Loch Lomond, Damien Jurado and Peter Buck (who is producing their upcoming EP this Fall).

Principal songwriters John Moen and Chris Slusarenko have turned inwards to their loves of New Zealand/Flying Nun guitar buzz, their teenage L.A. Paisley Underground obsessions, haunts of early Athens and all things beautiful, lopsided and rock. Along with members Jonathan Drews (guitar), Jim Talstra (bass) and Paulie Pulvirenti (drums) they push and pull against each other’s songwriting, in a beautiful tension that just works.

The album was recorded with Adam Selzer (The Gossip, The Breeders, Red Fang) and mastered by Carl Saff (Merge, SubPop).

Hot on the heels of a European Tour, Nashville’s favorite rock ‘n’ rollers, Natural Child, hit the road this November, gracing the States with another round of their spirited live show. The run includes a quick stint with 2014’s Burger Caravan of Stars and routes the band through the Midwest and East Coast in support of their latest, Dancin’ with Wolves, which was released earlier this year on Burger Records and won the hearts of blues, garage, country, and boogie fans from all across the world.

Natural Child will reissue their live LP/ 7-inch combo, Live In Birmingham, which quickly sold out the first go around. Back in May 2013, Shed House Records captured the set at the Bottletree Cafe in Birmingham, Alabama. It includes covers of NRBQ’s “Ridin’ in My Car”, country standard “Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues,” and Gram Parsons’ “I Can’t Dance.” It’ll be re-released as a tape by Burger in celebration of Cassette Store Day (Sept 27) and will be limited to 300 copies.

Seattle’s The Pharmacy is gearing up to release Spells, an album that favors the mellow, subdued side of garage-rock with hazy reverb and hypnotic, psych-tinged melodies. Out August 12 on Old Flame Records (and on casette via Burger Records), Spells was recorded in the basement of a used car museum in downtown Tacoma, each of its ten tracks laid down live by Kyle Brunette (producer of Night Beats’ S/T and Sonic Bloom LPs.) Today, the band shares album closer “Strange,” a fuzzy, blissed-out track propelled by lead singer Scottie Yoder’s effortless croon. You can stream the track where it premiered with Wondering Sound and download & post it via Soundcloud.

Spells is the latest in a long line of releases from a band that’s been making music for over a decade. Having toured extensively over the years, The Pharmacy has shared stages with bands like Vivian Girls, Japanther, and Matt and Kim.
