*This will never be like the old EatKS.

There will be shows, weird nonsense and my beloved No Pants Record Store Shopping posts.

I have missed sharing my music journeys with you but this is a small version of what I used to do.

And I have  finally come to terms with that a little is better than nothing. 

No Pants Record Store Shopping Selections
When I check out a Bandcamp I listen to more than one track and try to check out their social media pages. I don't tolerate xenophobia in any form. All the links are hyperlinked to make it easier for you to check out music! If you say that there isn't good music out there anymore , then it just means you are not looking hard enough! Happy music hunting! Many thanks to all the twitter accounts that see the value in supporting the hashtag by tweeting their own music picks or retweeting and liking their favourites. Remember it costs you $0 dollars to tweet or retweet a band's links to buy their music  and your small effort means there is a better chance for that band to break through the internet noise. 

 
 
 
No Pants Record Store Shopping July 2020 Edition 
Bandcamp is once again giving their portion of sales to the artists so here is a list of bands picked by music fans for music fans.  If you don't have the cash to buy music you can simply help spread the word of these or your favourite bands on your social media platform, that costs you nothing but a small amount of time ;)

May 1st 2020 No Pants Picks

Bandcamp will continue to my favourite place to purchase music for many reasons. Bandcamp has now waived their fees twice to help support the bands, artists and record labels during the COVID19 Pandemic. Bands can't do shows, people are reluctant to buy via record labels because of shipping costs. 

This is where NoPantsRecordStoreShopping makes even more sense now!

I know that there are many out there that refuse to buy digital and say it's not the same thing. But if you are using a streaming music, you don't have a valid argument!  I follow a lot of record labels on Bandcamp which means my inbox is flooded with TONS of releases. It's hard to keep up. before getting into my picks for this months tweet session of  NoPantsRecordStoreShopping  check out the list Bandcamp created.

         This month 32 twitter accounts participated in #NoPantsRecordStoreShopping tweet session with tweeting out, faving and retweeting bandcamp  links.

Even if you don’t know Montreal-based, Vancouver-established band Dopey’s Robe yet, you should still get their new album, Velvet Skinner. No downloads yet (releases Aug 31) but their prev albums are garage-psych masterpieces! 

VELVET SKINNER, by Dopey's Robe  dopeysrobe.bandcamp.com

 

I love Austin, TX’s Annabelle Chairlegs. Frontwoman Lindsey Mackin is a powerhouse & their sound brings together pop, psych & garage in the perfect rock n roll package. Releases Sept 1st, but worth it for the preview tracks now. 

Gotta Be In Love, by Annabelle Chairlegs   annabellechairlegs.bandcamp.com

 

Los Angeles’ Healing Gems are precisely the jewels you need in your collection right now. A technicolor blend of styles that hits just right, their music is exotic yet familiar, modern yet retro... basically all the adjectives! 

Fiesta Pack, by Healing Gems    mockrecords.bandcamp.com

Another retro psych power punch, this time from the land of Oz. Sydney’s The Uplifting Bell Ends create a sonic landscape encompassing space, time, dystopia, utopia & everything between. If that’s what you’re into, you need it! 

Super Giant & World Music Oddities, by The Uplifting Bell Ends

A pay-what-you-want single worth picking up — the amazing & prolific force that is Nolan Potter, hot on the heels of an album on Castle Face Records w/his Nightmare Band, this one is fun & unexpected in the best possible ways! 

Dog Breath, In the Year of the Plague, by Nolan Potter     nolanpotter.bandcamp.com

Speaking of prolific AND Castle Face Records, (Thee) Oh Sees have a new one, called Protean Threat, to be released on Sept 18. There’s not much that I can say that hasn’t already been said about these legends. 

Protean Threat, by Oh Sees  ohsees.bandcamp.com

 

I just learned about Saskatoon, SK’s Dump Babes & I’m glad I did. Melodic and dreamy psych with a touch of grit and twang, this self-titled EP from back in February is great summer listening! 

Dump Babes, by Dump Babes   dumpbabes.bandcamp.com

 

As noted, I’m a sucker for psych, garage & surf-inspired rock. I’m also a sucker for multilingual songwriting. Madrid’s The Parrots hit the mark for me — y tal vez pa’ ti también? Their new one, Los Niños Sin Miedo, is a banger 

Los Niños Sin Miedo, by The Parrots   theparrots.bandcamp.com

Psychic Love child recently followed me on Twitter and from there, I discovered the fantastic psychedelic singles that they’ve released this year. Give ‘em a follow here and grab their tunes from Bandcamp!
