Roundin’ Up The Raves: Los Coast, Ida Mae, Ulysses, SadGirl, Tim Heidecker

I hope y’all are ready for waves of new music. Ride it out as best you can.

Let’s round ’em up.

Los Coast – Samsara

Is it rock? Is it R&B? Who cares? It’s insane that this is their debut.

Ida Mae – Ida Mae

Do you like guitars? Of course you do. Then groove to this. Indie Americana.

Ulysses – On Safari

This sounds amazingly like a lost 10cc album (if 10cc had incorporated more glam rock — a little T. Rex and Roy Wood). Except when they sound like Cheap Trick.

SadGirl – Water

Taking inspiration from early rock & roll ballads, SadGirl sound like no one else. Extra points for saxophones. I really want saxes to have a resurgence.

Tim Heidecker – What The Brokenhearted Do…

Heidecker is a comic who also happens to be a fine songwriter. When some internet trolls started a (false) rumor that he was getting a divorce, he decided to write a fake divorce record which sounds like a cross between Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson.
