Action Research #198:

Macula Dog
(Queens, NY)
("Macula Dog Is the Cross Between Devo and 'Pee-wee’s Playhouse' You’ve Been Searching For" --Tim Scott, Noisey)
http://maculadog.com
https://haord.bandcamp.com/album/macula-dog
https://wharfcatrecords.bandcamp.com/album/why-do-you-look-like-your-dog

Cabo Boing
(Tampa)
("Like Mark Mothersbaugh’s electro-contortions or Animal Collective’s Sung Tongs-era surrealism or any of his many labelmates on the New York cassette imprint Haord, he has a keen ability to make music that’s both parasitically catchy and wholly unfamiliar." --Colin Joyce, Pitchfork)
https://haord.bandcamp.com/album/blob-on-a-grid

Euglossine
("Euglossine bridges the complex harmonies of jazz fusion, the ornate synth performances of library music, and the rapidly evolving sentimental resonances of video game music. While Coriolis paints Euglossine as a scholar who has pored over the diverse branches of 20th century progressive composition, the reality of his playing cuts through preconceptions of elitism or excess typically attributed to these musical traditions — perfecting the sense of raw beauty and wonder that lodge our favorite tunes in our long-term memories.")
https://hausumountain.bandcamp.com/album/coriolis
https://euglossine.bandcamp.com/

Ironing
("Florida's J. Dilla meets Otomo Yoshihide + his own thing" --Kenny Millions. Best believe I wrote that one down so I wouldn't forget.)

In late 2015, a group of high school friends started playing music in a Fernandina Beach, Florida garage. It did not take long for the five to realize their mutual ambition for playing music on the national stage. Today, they make up the band flipturn, which has been taking the Florida indie scene by storm and capturing the hearts of music lovers around the world.

flipturn is comprised of Dillon Basse (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tristan Duncan (lead guitar), Madeline Jarman (bass), Taylor Allen (synth), and Adrian Walker (drums). With a fun, feel-good sound, flipturn seamlessly blends elements of surf rock, garage, new wave, and pop.

flipturn's latest single - "August (Acoustic)" - is available on all digital platforms.

The music pumps with the hot, red blood of life irrepressible. But there's a cloud on the horizon, the doomed sense of life's finitude, that fueled these songs. Rather than dead-end nihilism, though, it's resulted in the kind of urgent, creative friction that Hunter S. Thompson could get down with. In making this album, The Sh-Booms have dug through the blur of life, swam through a sea of booze, to find love and truth in the shadow of the void. Although a soul band through and through, the grease and bite they've been picking up in the years leading up to this big step out have been forged in the bad company of punk and garage bands. From that underground now rises a new hurricane of big orchestration, maximum stomp and fresh intent. It's a little ache and a lot of party all wrapped up in a wrecking ball. Since their 2011 inception, The Sh-Booms have become kind of a thing in their native scene and beyond. Besides perennial winners of “Best Soul Act” in the Orlando Weekly's big annual Best of Orlando issue, they've been tapped to share the stage with national names like The Roots, Of Montreal, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, Jacuzzi Boys, Budos Band, Big Freedia, Lee Fields, St. Paul & the Broken Bones and The B-52's (whom the band toured with in 2017 and 2018). They've been featured on NPR, their music has been made it on TV (CW's Supergirl) and they've played Austin City Limits, Okeechobee Music Festival, SunFest and Gasparilla Music Festivals. Since powerhouse singer Brenda Radney joined in 2015, the band's course has been locked, their date with destiny set. She was signed to Justin Timberlake's Tennman label, even appearing on his album, The 20/20 Experience, Pt. 2. But after clicking with band leader Al Ruiz while recording separately in the same studio, she jumped aboard The Sh-Booms to turn this train into a true locomotive. After the release of their 2016 Usage Fee EP and a countless number of shows in the Southeast, the 10 songs along The Blurred Odyssey were Produced by Grammy-nominated Alan Armitage (AA Villain) over an 18-month span that cemented the band as a tight-knit unit. That chemistry achieved is where The Sh-Booms are now, and The Blurred Odyssey is their testament. The seas are stirrin'... ...The storm's a-brewin'

There's this dynamic that churns hard in The Blurred Odyssey, the debut full-length album by ascendant Orlando garage-soul enterprise The Sh-Booms, out March 22, 2019 on Limited Fanfare Records.
