by Tim McMahan,

I’ve still yet to receive my first preview/review CD for 2012, but while I’m waiting, here are some new tracks that became available online to start off your new year.


Cursive, “The Sun and The Moon” — from the forthcoming album I Am Gemini, slated for release on Saddle Creek Feb. 21, if the rest of the new record sounds like this, Kasher and the boys may have another hit on their hands. Check it out here. The album is now available for pre-order here at the Saddle Creek online store, where it’ll ship Feb. 7. Buy it now and get access to a second track from the new album, “The Cat and Mouse,” instantly.

Depressed Buttons, “Dance with Me (Brianski)” — The electronic/dance/DJ triumvirate of Todd Fink, Jacob Thiele and Clark Baechle drop this new acid-themed jam designed to get your rump shaking. Also at SoundCloud.


Bad Speler: Darren Keen is giving The Show Is the Rainbow the year off so he can concentrate on his other projects: Bad Speler and Touch People. Yesterday he posted the following new Bad Speler tracks at SoundCloud. Says Keen: “This is the stuff I’m going to be doing at my monthly at House of Loom.” His “monthly” is a residency at Omaha’s newest dance club every 4th Wednesday of the month, starting Jan. 26.

“Throw Ya Guns”

“Pistols, ETC.”

“My Intentions”
