Big Search – To Feel In Love

Big Search shares a stunning rendition of “To Feel In Love,” originally released by Lucio Battisti in 1977. The Italian love song is emotionally stirring and sonically full, qualities not uncommon to Big Search’s own output.

Matt says of his choice to cover the song, “Ever since I heard the English version of ‘To Feel In Love,’ I felt connected to it, like I had written it. That’s usually the case with songs I cover: I play them endlessly until they feel part of me. I feel like it’s also a way to turn others on to the original, which is incredible and criminally under the radar.” With the exception of flutes and synths, “To Feel In Love” was recorded live with Jason Quever (Papercuts) at his Los Angeles studio, Palmetto Recording.

The track epitomizes the band’s recognizable soulful psychedelic sound. Subtle yet emotive, the track builds like a forlorn heartbeat toward its rousing chorus. Warm instrumentals and a stunning vocal melody act as a remedy for the track’s bittersweet lyrics:

Oh I never thought a single moment in a day could change

My life, my life

Oh every problem is a pain that I don’t want to face

Cause if I turn around then I know we’ll

Collide, collide

Grandaddy – Bison on the Plains

Grandaddy have shared their first bit of music since 2017 by way of a new single “Bison On The Plains”.

 Of the single the band’s Jason Lytle says:

Setting out with the intent of replicating the ‘feel and vibe’ of  the song ‘Drive’ which is one of my favorite Cars song’s …I got a little of the way into “Bison on the Plains” (BOTP) and realized I had failed.I blamed the lame new spot I had set up my studio in Portland Oregon. In the basement of some super pretentious magazine lured by cheap rent….I just really was not feeling it.

I stopped working on BOTP  and cursed my new studio location and immediately began disassembling everything …eventually moving out and setting up all my gear in the living room of my little house in Portland. A recent divorce and a purging of all domestic belongings/furniture made setting up all of my gear easy and convenient. This location also ended up being where I wrote and recorded most of  Last Place the most recent Grandaddy album.

Anyways…I thought BOTP might make the cut for Last Place but it did not. Apparently it still had some baggage carried over from whence it came. I loved the words though…and didn’t want to give up on it….so it simply got shelved in  some incomplete form until I could come back and spend some more thoughtful time with it. So here it is.

It sounds as if the words are about the melodramatic lengths I go to… and methods I employ… to frame an image in a song. Almost jokingly. But respectfully.

Like all of the noises, sound samples, buttons, keys, circuits, wires, strings, and gear it takes  for  someone like me to facilitate the lonely looking image of a solitary bison standing out on the open plains.

I have no regrets of being a songwriter that cannot simply just pull this off with an acoustic guitar and some lyrics. I need my” tricks of the trade.”

Anyway.. Im just relieved I got the song out of that dank basement and out into the light.

Enjoy, J”

Grandaddy’s last album, Last Place, was released in March of 2017. It marks a perfect addition to the band’s celebrated, critically-acclaimed catalogue, that includes their breakthrough sophomore album, Sophtware Slump, and their debut, Under the Western Freeway. It’s a symphonic swirl of lo-fi sonics and mile-high harmonies, found sounds and electronics-gone-awry mingling with perfect, power pop guitar tones. Lytle’s voice sounds as warm and intimate as ever, giving graceful levity to the doomsday narratives that have dominated the Grandaddy output.

Australia’s folk-surf-psyche-pop group The Babe Rainbow are happy to announce a forthcoming new album, Double Rainbow, set for release on July 13 via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records.  Today the band shares the LP’s first single, “Supermoon.”  It marks the first bit of new music the band have shared since the 2017 release of their self-titled debut LP. Watch the video here:

After touring relentlessly and around the world in support of their debut, The Babe Rainbow treated to the homey hills of Byron Bay, Australia to record album number 2 with producer Wayne Connolly.
With the release of The Babe Rainbow last year, Nylon noted the band is, “everything you could ask for from a left-of-center, nostalgia trip of a new band” and Entertainment Weekly said, “Their fantastic debut album…compiles folk and psych-rock influences for one of the greatest ’60s homages in recent years.” The album was produced by Stu Mackenzie (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard).

The Babe Rainbow was formed in the in the summer of 2014 by Angus Dowling and Jack Laughlan Crowther in the coastal surf town of Rainbow Bay, Australia. Students of English, lovers of permaculture, riders of waves – the pair also found common ground in the 60’s music like The Incredible String Band and Swing Mademoiselles. Their early singles attracted the attention of Flightless Records who went on to release their breakout single “Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.”  The band — which now includes Lucas Mariani and Jessi Dunbar — caught the attention of US record producer, artist and now label owner Danger Mouse who signed them to his 30th Century Records.
