Just Doing Our Job #3

Went to a great show a couple weeks ago to see Screamin' Cyn Cyn and the Pons, a band I talk about entirely too much on this site. Being the headliners, they picked the openers, and thankfully brought Santa Cruz noise-rock collective, The New Thrill Parade into town for what ended up being one of the best sets I've seen in quite a while. Since I'm still trying to process the oddness I witnessed that night, The New Thrill Parade is the focus of this installment of Transmissions From Wintermute's Just Doing Out Job.

After expressing my love to extremely friendly drummer DeSanto, he gave me a free CD and coloring book and told me it was cool to post Thrill Parade songs on our site. I thanked him for the coloring book, but he doesn't have to thank me for the world wide prestige and impenetrable street cred this post will bring. Why? Because we're just doing our jobs. Off their newest release, 2006's Universal Shame, here are four tracks of brooding, pounding, spazzed out art-rock. Yes. Thank you California.

Buy this ablum or their first EP HERE.

Ululations - The New Thrill Parade

The Ostrich - The New Thrill Parade

Body Ship - The New Thrill Parade

No Flowers - The New Thrill Parade

More tracks available on their SITE and MYSPACE.

Making music that one can sit back and take in as a challenging piece of conceptual and sonic art, or rock out to, beating their fists and thrashing their heads in a sweaty mass on the floor is no small feat. But Thrill Parade walks this line confidently, gracefully side-stepping the usual pitfalls of experimental music. Borrow someone's van and drive out to northern California to check out a show sometime.

And here for good measure is a track by Madison's shoegazers-extrodinaire, The Bracelets, off a Sector Five Records compilation:

Future Be Mine - The Bracelets

I was thinking I've heard of these guys before, but where. Then I realized it was from right here.

You guys are so ahead of the curve it makes me sick.

you spelled our wrong in the first paragraph (if you fix it then fix my interview because NO DIFFERENCE). (Also, nobody reads your here's a thing we changed section, I don't even know what it's called or where to find it, in fact I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist at all, which actually would be pretty funny.)
