Residuels
"Love Songs
"
mp3
Philly rock ‘n’ rollers Justin Pittney, Mike Cammarata, and Kyle Garvey (a.k.a. Residuels) revamp essential garage cuts on their latest release Love Songs. Available now via Suicide Bong Tapes, the three-piece’s cassette kick-starts with a full-throttle rendition of Rich Berry’s “Have Love, Will Travel.” The power trio’s frenetic take on the song that put bands like Thee Headcoatees and Paul Revere & the Raiders on the map is far from derivative. From the very first lick of guitar, Pittney and his bandmates tap into the original fury at the center of “Have Love Will Travel,” using crashing riffs and uninhibited vocals reminiscent of The Gories.
 
Residuels’ take on The Damned’s debut single “New Rose” is similarly inventive, giving listeners an unadulterated taste of the original song’s rhythm and fuzz. Pittney channels Dave Vanian with ease, mimicking the legendary Londoner’s punk-as-fuck diction as if he wrote the track himself. Clocking in at a few seconds shy of three minutes, the second track on Love Songs is arguably one of the best renditions of the ‘76 single.
 
The same could be said for “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Opening with a guttural scream, the group’s tribute to psych-rock icons The 13th Floor Elevators is perfectly executed, with each chord and clash of cymbal adding to the instrumented intensity of the already well-loved garage classic. “You’re Gonna Miss Me” feels like a stubborn tantrum, the sonic manifestation of the sort of longing that is borne of desperation and pure desire that is mirrored in the album’s closer “It Girl.” Residuels’ jangly styling of one the most lovelorn (and heart-wrenching) tracks on The Brian Jonestown Massacre's fifth LP is equally captivating, despite being one of Love Song’s quietest tracks, leaving listeners smitten. For die-hard fans of garage rock and newcomers alike, Love Songs doesn’t just pay homage to the genre’s past; it celebrates its vibrant present. - Dianca London

Marinate in the deep psych-surf groove of previously unreleased “Howl” from Needle Points' performance on April 29, 2016 at Bourbon & Branch. The band’s debut full-length is slated for a summer release. This raunchy space-boogie ditty suggests that the Scott McMicken-produced record should be one that’s on your radar.

Below is a new music video for Modern Baseball's track "Wedding Singer," which is the latest single from the group's forthcoming album Holy Ghost. In it, the lovable quartet is the house band inside the brain of the video's protagonist, who is having a shitty day until he hooks up with pink-wigged cutie driving a hearse. Things get a little Twilight Zone-y, but the romance eventually blossoms. Holy Ghost comes out on May 13 via Run For Cover Records, and the band will be doing a special in-store performance at Long in the Tooth on Thursday, May 12.

The trio known as Lady Parts hits the upstairs of Kung Fu Necktie this evening. The band dishes out melodic, cut-down-to-the-core rock, implementing smooth vocal harmony and combating that with moments of snarl. Lyrically-twisting, simple-on-the-surface images that entrench themselves with a deeper resonance, it's heartfelt, attitude-smeared rock that you’ll subconsciously replay throughout the day. The twang-infused, alt-country tunes of Betty Iron Thumbs and the jolting noise-punk of Kevin help to complete this billing, which also includes the debut performance of local three-piece Cool Eagle. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Watch the new video for “Arrest,” found on Curtis Cooper's debut album Laughing in Line. The footage captivates with its haunting sense of entrapment. Dylan Pecora captures the face-warping, eye-popping intensity as Cooper conducts the songs movements while those basement walls seem to hold him in. He's also set to perform at Bourbon & Branch on Friday, May 13, as part of Queen of Jeans residency, which also includes Ceramic Animal’s record release.
