The Men, Open Your Heart

The Men, Open Your Heart LP $19

Welcome to New Plastic Ideas. Maybe we should become acquainted. I’m Fast Forward Weekly contributor and record store clerk Devin Friesen. There’s a pretty good chance that if you buy records in Calgary, I’ve sold something to you. New Plastic Ideas is my new column. With it, I int…

King Tuff, Wild Desire 7″

King Tuff
Wild Desire 7″ $7.00
Suicide Squeeze

Another brilliant piece of work from the legendary underground garage-pop sensation King Tuff. If you were lucky enough to have snapped up a copy of his first LP (now long out of print) – you are, without a doubt, already a fan. This single is more of the same. ’60s influenced pop hits with squealing guitars, bashing drums and killer vocal hooks. This single is a lead-in to his second full length LP due out May 1st on Sub Pop. I can’t wait. This single is a 7th grade tease. Gotta wait ’till Sub Pop let’s us touch a boob. But for now, this will do.

Mount Carmel, Real Women

Mount Carmel, Real Women, CD $16/LP $20 –

Man, it’s been a while, huh? Like, since the last Mount Carmel record, maybe? I can’t remember, I just listen to podcasts now, like the Best Show on WFMU, which last week called this sophomore effort a high point of 2012. Really? You’re not listening to either Mount Carmel or the Best Show? What a horrible aural prison you’ve created. Anyway, this still sounds like Free meeting Hendrix-Sabbath-Zepplin right on the cusp of blues rock turning into metal. Everything’s tighter; no jams over five minutes, no song called _______ jam. Just buy this and listen to it every day already. On Siltbreeze who’ve been putting out hits for 4 decades now. I dunno, I got PJ to buy this w/in like 10 seconds of Beta Banding it. It’s good.
