No one's favorite Golden Girl?

Once-Vermont-based, now-Brooklyn-based Blanche Blanche Blanche will release their debut as a full band on Wharf Cat early this November. You can pre-order it here. From Life or Death PR:

Sarah Smith and Zach Phillips are nonidiomatic lyricists practicing Open Session Rock. Since 2010 they've written and recorded seven full length records on multitrack cassette, released on NNA, Night People, Feeding Tube, La Station Radar and OSR. Breaking Mirrors is their first album recorded in a professional studio with a live band (consisting of drummer Jo Miller-Gamble, bassist Adam Steck, and guitarists Quentin Moore and Colin White) following the traditional period of demoing and rehearsal.

Lumerians, BOOBS! and fish rape.

My first and last experience with Lumerians was a by-the-book psych jam on stage at the Echoplex, and five years later, they've got more of the same to offer. The Oakland band leans heavily on Krautrock, psychedelia and (self-labeled) space rock energy, and this (NSFW) video, made in promotion of last month's release The High Frontier, is a fair representation. Said video also features the easiest birth since Brooklyn Decker in What to Expect When You're Expecting. 

Purchase The High Frontier.

It's Friday! New music! In a nutshell!

Here's the sexy, new, non-rockin', Turtles-soundin' new song by the Dirtbombs. Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey comes out on In The Red on September 17. Available for purchase here.

Here's a track from Raccoon Fighter. It sounds like the Angus soundtrack. More from them here.

Palehound is now a thing.

Hullo! Here's one from Palehound, the musical pseudonym of 19-year old Ellen Kempner, another solid find from Exploding in Sound. Kempner's Bent Nail EP gets released October 22, and this debut single takes a few cues from influences out of the '70s and beyond.

Before she was Palehound, a very teenage Kempner was based in Connecticut and released a record under the name Kempa. See below.
