Attack Ships On Fire :: Vegas Soul

Attack Ships On Fire - Vegas SoulLabour Day is fast approaching likewise, coincidentally, the end of Summer 2012.  If they haven’t already done so, young chitlins, angst ridden teens and future college drop outs all around the world will soon be starting their Fall classes and, thus, ending life as they know it. Fortunately for these wayward yutes there is a new album dropping from Oregon’s Attack Ships on Fire that should help in tiding them over until…well…with their limited attention spans Thanksgiving might be a stretch but I think Halloween is in the bag for sure.  The (12) tracks that encompass the Pride of Portland’s third album entitled Vegas Soul were actually inspired by a new book from author P Moss called Vegas Knockout that is due to drop on Sept. 6th as is album #3 from the aforementioned ASoF.

We got a sneak peek…err listen…to the album’s title track and it’s delovely.  Driven doesn’t even begin to describe it.  This one, my friends, comes at you fast and furious with a musical double tap that is true pandalerium.  I freaking love it…sounds a bit like Coheed and Cambria meets the Sex Pistols but that’s what I dig about it.

Many thanks to our friends at SquidHat Records for sharing the love.  Peace…

artist: Rocketclover | genre: indie, folk | label: Criminal Records

Our friends at Criminal Records have turned us on to some great music since Froglix launched almost a year and half ago!  The Kut, The Exits…cutting edge alternative rock bands with plenty of indie attitude…and then there’s Rocketclover.  These blokes are hilarious, wonderfully talented musicians who have taken what is arguably one of the best (if not the best) punk song every written and transformed it into an indie/folk gem!  Look, covering the Sex Pistols is nothing new but…a folk version of Anarchy in the UK’!?  Are you kidding me?!?  This one has got to be at the top of the list for ingenuity.

A recent press release from CR stated out that “The motive behind the release aims to rectify the 1977 injustice against The Sex Pistols whose popular single ‘God Save The Queen’ was prevented from reaching No. 1 because of an ‘unwelcome’ coincidence with the Queen’s silver jubilee.”

Their motivation ’tis noble indeed…and the song/video are both a fitting tribute to a phenomenal band.
