Local Releases: Playing Catchup to November | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Local Releases: Playing Catchup to November



Hey, gang! It's been a while since I've done one of these, and much like riding a bike after a long time, it's gonna be a little clunky for the first few moments until I get back in the groove. --- Some of you, especially local musicians, have been wondering what's up. Short version: I've been busy. There's a lot of side projects that have been happening this year and reporting the local releases fell off the table for a bit. But just because I haven't been writing about it doesn't mean I haven't been keeping track. If you scroll down I'll talk about releases out this first week in November, but first, here's a list of everything (to the best of my knowledge) that's been released between May and October 2013.

Yeah, mighty long, right? So, let me get this train back on track and start talking about what's current! First up, our old friends in Max Pain & The Groovies are back with a brand-new EP this week. The group have been playing their asses off at venues since their last album, Tortilla Gold, came out in November 2011. Now, the five-piece, fire-breathing rock band are back with a self-titled EP ,which is sounding pretty damned good. You can download it from their Bandcamp page for a mere $5.

Speaking of bands with EPs: The Moth & The Flame have returned with one of their own. The duo of Brandon Robbins and Mark Garbett, who blew the doors off of Velour and proved that Utah County could bring the alternative, turned trio with the inclusion of Andrew Tolman on drums and have started heading in a very different direction, which includes somewhat saying they're now an L.A. band. The group (seen above, photo courtesy of their Facebook page) worked with Joey Waronker of Atoms For Peace, as well as Peter Katis from The National to put together their 2013 EP: &. It sounds pretty cool; traces of their 2011 debut can be detected, but they're definitely playing with their sound and can only make one wonder what their next full-length could be. You'll be able to purchase the online-only EP this Tuesday, Nov. 5, from iTunes and their website.

Going into release shows, we've got one tonight in Ogden for the debut release from Sweet Tooth. Not a lot to really say on this solo performer; much of his bio online is boastful, including his appearance on Bravo's The Kandi Factory, where he won for his single and music video for “Gotta Go.” Since then, it seems the goth-pop singer (can I call it that?) has been hard at work in the studio, putting together his debut full-length album, Create Your Fate. You can check out the release show tonight at Mojos, where he'll be playing with Vicious Tampons and more people who haven't been named yet. Show kicks off at 8pm and is just $5.

Love music, head out, buy local!
