This Weeks Short Bursts ::

Ringo Deathstarr + Say Hi + Explosions in The Sky

Austin, TX pop noise makers,Ringo Deathstarr will release their debut LP, Colour Trip on March through Sonic Unyun Records on March 8th. Even with the comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and The Mary Chain we hesitate to toss the shoegaze tag, mostly due to the bands true pop sensibilities that we hear under the sea of noise and feedback. According to fronter Elliott Fraizer, Colour Trip represents a full realization of the bands vision, a vision through a druggy haze of sound. The band heads off to Europe next month for a tour supporting Dean Wareham before returning home for a U.S. tour including a hometown gig at this years SXSW.

Shame on us for being surprised by the arrival of a new album from Say Hi, after all 2009's Oohs and Aahs remains in frequent rotation around here. The new record is another superbly titled offering,Um, Uh Oh issued earlier this week on
Barsuk. The album is already receiving some well deserved praise and is being called Eric Elbogens most mature and introspective song cylce to date. Say Hi play The Middle East on March 6th with Blair and Yellow Ostrich.

We would be big fat liars if we didn't admit to how damn excited we our about the prospect of a new recording from post-rock goliaths, Explosions in The Sky. The bands new LP is entitled Take Care, Take Care, Take Care will be issued by the fine folks at Temporary Residence on April 26th. The six track album was recorded in West Texas with John Congleton. Explosions in The Sky will play Radio City Music Hall with Low and Eluvium on April 6th for as of now the bands only scheduled U.S. date.
