Tobin Sprout
Tobin Sprout
Tobin Sprout, former guitarist / songwriter of indie-rock icons Guided By Voices, has a new album (his first in 7 years), The Universe And Me (Burger Records), out on January 27. The Universe and Me takes a deliberately primitive approach that focuses on feeling, as opposed to production. The result is a vague bridge between the ballads of psych-era Beatles, and the haunting vulnerability of Daniel Johnston’s Hi, How Are You?.
Sprout penned and sang GBV classics including 14 Cheerleader Coldfront, It’s Like Soul Man, Awful Bliss, Ester’s Day, To Remake The Young Flier and Islands (She Talks In Rainbows). Burger Records will also be reissuing Sprout’s out-of-print 1990s Matador solo albums, Carnival Boy and Moonflower Plastic. In 2017, Sprout will be performing throughout the US with his 4-piece band.
DTCV
DTCV
French-American rock ‘n’ roll trio DTCV (pronounced Detective) was formed in Los Angeles in 2012 by Lola Freakout, Cold Jim, and Ringo. Known for its incendiary live shows, the group has been compared variously to Sonic Youth, Mission of Burma, and “post-Nico Velvet Underground with Debbie Harry on vocals.”

DTCV has thus far released two EPs, Very Fallen World and Basket of Masks. A full length album, However Strange, was released in late August 2012 on cassette by Burger Records. All three of these earlier releases were reissued in February 2014 by Mock Records under the title The Early Year. The groop recently released Hilarious Heaven, an ambitious (read: contains free jazz saxophone skronk and flute solo(s), a piano ballad in French, synth-pop, a Monks cover, and two songs that surpass the eleven minute mark) double album recorded by Steve Kille of Dead Meadow, on Xemu Records. The brilliant artwork was supplied by Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices. DTCV will be touring extensively throughout 2014 in support of both Hilarious Heaven and The Early Year.
