New band: Young Jesus plans album

Young Jesus is a foursome who formed in Chicago and moved to L.A.

The band just signed to Saddle Creek, the long-running Omaha record label, and plans to release a self-titled album in February.

Slint, Built to Spill, Pile and others are name checked in the band’s publicity material.

Here’s a video for the almost 10-minute song Feeling, which does draw on some of the aforementioned influences.

Listen to a new Ty Segall song

It’s been three weeks since Ty Segall released a new song.

So, of course, it’s time for yet another one.

Segall just released My Lady’s On Fire. It’s a ballad but takes a little different approach than much of his catalog. A little piano and saxophone end this pop song on a jazzy note.

Japandroids, Cloud Nothings play Empty Bottle surprise show

It was billed as a mystery show Friday night. Now, Empty Bottle just announced that Japandroids (above) and Cloud Nothings will play a show with no advance tickets and barely any advance notice.

Tickets are $10 — cash only — and will be sold at the door when it opens at 9 p.m. Friday night. No lining up before 7 p.m., according to an email from the Bottle.

One ticket per person.

Both bands released decent albums this year and have strong back catalogs. They are both highly energetic live.
