Gary War – “Muscle Dysmorphia”

Oddball psychedelicist Gary War is set to release his third LP, Jared's Lot, later this month. We got one taste of the new album, "Superlifer," back in May, and now another: "Muscle Dysmorphia" sounds kinda like the Boredoms crossed with Devo. On bath salts. Except, you know, really weird. Check it out. More »

Gary War – “Superlifer”

The eccentric lo-fi pop artist Gary War will soon release his new solo album Jared's Lot. The album track "Superlifer" sounds like five different video game soundtracks playing at once and features a fuckload of vocoder. Listen to it below. More »

Under The Influence: Servile Sect Trvth

The Phoenix-born Northern California/Brooklyn-based noisemakers Servile Sect play "sci-fi influenced black metal." It's even more awesome than that sounds. The band, featuring Luke Krnkr (one half of ITHI) and Ash Borer's Nhate Clmnt, previously released two full-lengths, the last one, Realms Of The Queen, via Ecstatic Peace. Album three Trvth is out now in a… More »

Gary War – “Sirens” (Stereogum Premiere)

I like that "Sirens" sounds like it should -- a kind of half-submerged emergency whistle splashing around the Police Water. So far we've heard EP opener, the '80s sci-fi "Born Of Light," and the equally apocalyptic, dystopian CD bonus track "Hollow Futures." If you own the vinyl, though, it all ends with "Sirens,"… More »

Gary War – “Hollow Futures” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The last Gary War war video we posted featured cultish pyramids/triangles in the name of "Highspeed Drift"'s phased-out, suffocated new-wave psychedelia. That was last 2009. This futuristic Dionne Loftus-directed video is for "Hollow Futures," a track from the CD-version of Gary War's new Police Water EP. It's pretty closely aligned with the '80s outer… More »

Gary War – “Born Of Light”

Last fall Gary War offered "Highspeed Drift"'s phased-out/suffocated new-wave psychedelia (of the Blank Dogs sort), complete with cultish pyramids/triangles (or Tri Angles). A year later the New York-based mystery man blasts into an '80s outer space via "Born Of Light" from the forthcoming Police Water 12". More »

Velvet Davenport – “Get Out” (Feat. Ariel Pink & Gary War) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Aside from LCD Soundsystem (who ruled MHOW last night, btw), it's the return of Ariel Pink and his masterful Before Today LP that's owning the who-got-what-promo-when and hyperbolic-modifier dialog that breaks out every so often in the blogosphere and on the Tweetdecks. All of which is a coincidental but considerable press benefit for skewed lo-fi… More »

Velvet Davenport – “Run” (Feat. Ariel Pink & Gary War)

There's a good dose of Guided By Voices creeping inside the 86 second, lazed and disoriented decades-old pop vibe Velvet Davenport's throwing down in "Run." You have a minute and a half for this, especially since we have that cute streamer built in to help you spend harddive space more judiciously. (Though, this one's worth… More »

Velvet Davenport – “Get Out” (Feat. Ariel Pink & Gary War)

Velvet Davenport are an interestingly weirdo, backward-glancing psychedelic Minneapolis sextet who, judging from their bloody Happy Ending album art, don't mind conjuring the Dwarves and/or Mudhoney even though sonically they're more in line with warping Strawberry Alarm Clock or the Seeds or the Yardbirds or whatever. Right, maybe the similarities are coincidental (and/or acid… More »
