Today’s pick is off the self-titled album released 3 days ago by a Mississippi quintet signed to FatCat records, Dead Gaze. Right off the bat this song starts off sounding like a mix of the “Settle Down” by Zwan & some keyboard notes from somewhere in the soundtrack of Planes, Trains & Automobiles…two works of art which I love dearly. Dead Gaze is a happy surprise for me. Their lyrics, their sound, their power are all rooted in band that exudes camaraderie in the live shows they’ve performed. I’m also a big sucker for over-compressed production. Though they’ve been compared to neo-hippie bands in the past, the Dead Gaze is much more structured and focused than most bands spawned out of psychadelia. This is an emotional album full of highs and lows from a group that could easily be considered a contender in the new tribes of lo-fi grunge bands.

Also I think i’m gonna leave them in very inconspicuous places like toilet tanks, the used bin of record stores and random purses..maybe even throw a few random sketches or creepy words of wisdom on the backs…CHECK YO-SELF FOOL!!!!
