Helvetia (pronunced hel-vee-shuh) is our band of the week. Originating in Seattle WA, and currently living in Portland, Helvetia is going to release their 7th album. Helvetia began in the aftermath of the droning, atmospheric group Duster (Up records). Jason Albertini and bandmate Conaan Dove Amber formed the group with the revolving cast contributors, which at times has included members of Built To Spill and Dinosaur Jr. "Nettles" is the new official video from their album "Nothing In Rambling". The new album is available on cd, digital, vinyl (red or black wax) and cassette. Pre-order at [ www.joyfulnoiserecordings.com ]. Release date: september 11th.
“Quarantine” is the brand new single taken from the third Bonaparte album “Sorry We’re Open” (out now!). They are considered a circus troupe more than a band. I saw them on stage a lot of times, I assure you they are a band! “Quarantine” makes it clear then, where we are going: into a seething maelstrom of sweaty blues-rock, trembles with a crackling electrical storm.
"Breakup Song" is the new album of Deerhoof, release date: september 4th under Polyvinyl. It's quiet difficult to speak about them after years, it's defenetely one of the HLT favourite bands, but incredibly they are able to go over and over any of my expectations every next album. Deerhoof is the defenitive pop destroyer, I'm quiet sure of that, one of the best music makers all around today. You can all preorder limited colored vinyl and limited cassette through [ http://www.polyvinylrecords.com/ ]. The complete album in streaming hereunder.
