MP3 Monday: Dead Confederate, Goldcure, The Yuppie Pricks

Posted By on Mon, Aug 18, 2008 at 9:37 AM

(Welcome to MP3 Monday, a selection of snazzy new tunes to start your week off right. All tracks are free and legal, sanctioned by the band or label.)

Band: Dead Confederate HQ: Athens, Georgia Website: MySpace Sounds Like: Among our many blog post descriptions (this one aggregates them all), I think I like Shae Moseley's description best. Of the band's live show, "it was the perfect combination of mystery and familiarity." Of the band's sound: "They sold me on a brand of heavy, bombastic loud/quiet rock that I had resigned myself to thinking I would never be interested in buying again. If you’re a fan of Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Failure and Nirvana, you’ll like Dead Confederate." Playing in town? Yes. Monday, September 29 at the Bluebird. Song from: The band's upcoming full-length debut, Wrecking Ball. MP3: Dead Confederate, "The Rat"

Band: Goldcure HQ: Austin, Texas Website: MySpace Sounds Like: Guitars with the beatific shimmer of newer Echo & the Bunnymen, but dusted with a slight twang, mixed with jerky vocals reminiscent of a medicated David Byrne (or a less-husky Britt Daniel). Playing in town? No -- not yet. Song from: New album, Portuguese Prince.

MP3: Goldcure, "Make It Stop"

Band: The Yuppie Pricks HQ: Austin, Texas Website: MySpace Sounds Like: Delightfully rude, snotty, loud, fast punk rock. RIYL Riverboat Gamblers and its ilk. Playing in town? No, although a double-bill with the Humanoids would be entirely appropriate, if not probably cause the venue to combust. Song from: New album, Balls.

MP3: The Yuppie Pricks, "Collars Up"
