Aaron Stout may not exactly be my cup of tea but his retro phsychadelic rock is well crafted and will appeal to many of you (especially fans of Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips). His new record, Queens Live In Casketts, will be out on Monotreme Records on Oct. 1. “The Coronation” has plenty of reverbed drenched electric guiter, overdubbed vocals and looped electronics. I’m told the rest of the album is full of mostly acoustic introspective songs.
PS David Barzin’s record which I wrote about here is getting a proper US release by Monotreme on Oct. 17. Speaking of introspective, David’s lyrics are so personal and the music so quiet that you truly feel you are holed up in his closet listening in as he sings to himself in a whisper trying not to wake up the rest of his household. Here’s another song from My Life In Rooms available in the US on Oct. 17.
