Besides a handful of dates last fall, it was one of the band’s first shows since Kathleen Hanna had to cancel a three-month-long tour after some health problems associated with her Lyme Disease. It was also the band’s first time playing in New York City since 2013. L.A. sister duo Bleached opened for them. Check… More »

Foxygen’s …And Star Power Features Flaming Lips, of Montreal, White Fence, Bleached, & More

When Foxygen announced their new album …And Star Power, they promised a “gaggle of guest stars” and now they’ve revealed some of that gaggle. In a tweet today, they said that the Flaming Lips, of Montreal, Bleached, White Fence, and more would make appearances. So far, we’ve heard studio versions of “How Can You Really“… More »

Photos: Burger A-Go-Go Fest 2014

This past weekend, Burger Records held a small festival called Burger A-Go-Go. That name implies a dance-filled occasion, but considering the goofy charm of the label, they’re probably referring to Monster A-Go-Go, one of the most painfully stupid movies ever filmed. Judging from its lineup, though, which includes Dum Dum Girls, the Muffs, and Best… More »

Bleached – “Poison Ivy” Video

Yesterday, the tough L.A. garage-poppers Bleached released their three-song For The Feel EP; we posted the title track a little while back. The band has a new video for their sneery, catchy EP track “Poison Ivy.” It captures their performance on the pilot of the Check Yo Ponytail TV show’s pilot episode, as well a… More »

Bleached – “For The Feel” (Stereogum Premiere)

Jennifer and Jessie Clavin’s music as Bleached tends to evoke an afternoon cruising around in the California sun blasting the Ramones. “For The Feel” is a prime example of their proficiency at that task, a fine blast of sunshine that feels effortless even as it shows off carefully honed craft. The song was originally intended… More »

Bleached – “Guy Like You” Video

Los Angeles band Bleached has put out several cheerily lo-fi videos since releasing their debut album, Ride Your Heart, last year. This new one, for the song “Guy Like You,” is directed by Micayla Grace, and much like the Halloween-themed video for “Love Spells,” this one has a certain romantic charm to it (even if… More »

Bleached – “Love Spells” Video

Bleached have released a holiday-primed video for their Ride Your Heart track “Love Spells.” The L.A. sister duo are known for their beachy post-punk, but in honor of Halloween, the girls have taken their usual carefree fare and added zombies and traded in house parties for a graveyard locale. Check it out below. More »

Bleached – “Dead In Your Head” Video

Earlier this year, LA’s Bleached released a great full-length debut, Ride Your Heart. We’ve already seen a video for “Next Stop,” now here’s the band’s prismacolor visualization of their hook-heavy single “Dead In Your Head.”… More »

Bleached – “Dazed” Video

Yesterday, the L.A. post-punk duo Bleached (formerly of Mika Miko) released their debut LP Ride Your Heart. “Dazed” is the unapologetic, unrefined pop-punk B-side of their 2011 7″ Francis. Unlike the carefully crafted narrative presented in the “Next Stop” video, “Dazed” reflects Bleached’s early grungy aesthetic. The shaky camera work and gritty color filters complement… More »

Bleached – “Dead In Your Head”

We’ve already got the energetic “Next Stop” from Bleached’s upcoming album Ride Your Heart, the video for which is probably my favorite to feature a selection of situations in which stink-and-poke tattoos are a good idea! (They’re probably not a good idea.) Now, they’ve given us “Dead In Your Head,” another flavor of beach blanket… More »

Bleached – “Next Stop” Video

When sister duo Bleached dropped “Next Stop” at the beginning of the year, I said that it was a great track to soundtrack a montage of hijinks. While I was picturing foibles of the Penelope Pitstop-variety, this black and white clip totally satisfies even if it the action is all house parties and motel room… More »

Bleached – “Next Stop”

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard new music from Bleached (last seen “Searching Through The Past“), but today the sister-duo has released an energetic new track “Next Stop.” The cut is so feel-good, it sounds like it belongs soundtracking a hijinks montage. Check it out below. More »

The 25 Bands We’re Most Excited To See At SXSW 2012

Hey, everybody, it’s that time again! South By Southwest 2012. Are you ready? How’s your hashtag game? Can you feel the early-onset FOMO? As the Austin institution grows larger and larger, with more and more high-level acts (ahem) interjecting themselves into the fray, there’s still plenty of room for the groups that are just starting… More »

Bleached – “Searching Through The Past” Video

In the latest video for sister act Bleached, the beachy rockers finds themselves out in the horse-and-coyote filled wild west. The clip for “Searching Through The Past” is a vivid romp that channels the ever-pervasive Super 8 film vibe, but the footage is a lot crisper and cleaner than that would suggest. It’s fun. Check… More »

Bleached – “Electric Chair”

A little while ago, we posted Bleached’s excellent, vintage garage-hearkening “Searching Through The Past” and now the B-side from that song’s 7” edition has surfaced in the form of the edgy “Electric Chair.” Stream the cut after the jump. More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

Bleached – “Searching Through The Past”

From the ashes of Mika Miko comes Bleached, whose sunny “Think Of You” we posted earlier in the summer. Here’s another track, “Searching Through The Past,” where the Clavin sisters ramp up the vintage girl group vocals. More »

Dunes – “Tied Together” Video

Here’s a video from Dunes, the LA trio featuring ex-Mika Miko member Kate Hall. The affiliation is relevant for purposes of fingering their track “Tied Together”‘s sound — female-fronted post-punk with less spike, more wooze — and the cameos in its iPhone-cam video, a Google+ circle’s worth of friends from Mika Miko’s old Smell-y scene… More »
