The Atlanta native garage/punk rock band the Coathangers are at the top of the ticket for the Burger-A-Go-Go West Coast tour. This is the first year that the tour is hitting the road as a tour. The band also recently announced some tour dates with Minus the Bear.
Burger Records is the independent record label that has prided itself on helping new and lesser-known bands get their foot in the door of the music industry. Founded by two musicians themselves, Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard formerly of the band Thee Makeout Party, both Bohrman and Rickard brought the perspective and insight from one aisle of the industry and record labels to other side; they went from creating the albums to helping others do the same.

At midday the small shop appears to be a lackluster shop with bars in front of the windows across from a rec center and a large church. It’s when the letters light up at night reading “PROPER PRINT SHOP” in bright rainbow colors to the sidewalk on the other side of Montana street that one recognizes the shop that has made it its mission to help young artists grow and be able to reach an audience.
Like everyone who is an avid listener of Ty Segall I was looking forward to the experimental/bluesy melodies acquitted with relatable lyrics that are easy to sing along to. This is not the case for this album. I’ll start this by addressing the vocal progressions and melodies of some of the songs on this album. Most of the songs come with very fuzzy and punchy tones and catchy rhythms but most of it is drawn away from the song once the vocals are introduced. Not every song is like this but a majority are derived from the same experimental vision. It takes away quite heavily in some songs only because the melodies do not make much sense in their progressions.
The eclectic Austin band began the anniversary tour for their third album Hello, Avalanche in El Paso, TX, at the Lowbrow Palace. The Octopus Project are well-known for their unique sounds that sound like the music Nintendo plumber Mario would concoct if he gave us his pipe dreams and ditched Princess Peach to become a composer for sci-fi films. Hello, Avalanche is a prime example of the emotions of glee and wonder their music invokes. The high zipping sound that Yvonne Lambert’s theremin leads through the Octopus Project’s music is what it must feel like skipping through a field of sunflowers whilst being shocked by static; relaxing in a strangely metallic way.
