HOLY SHIT NEW HOLY SHIT! / BAD HABITAT / OMEN GAMES

Holy Shit just announced three very exciting new releases. About time! First up is the new full-length Omen Games that is nearing completion. Next up is a new collection of demos and outtakes spanning the last 5 years mostly made with Ariel Pink called Bad Habitat. Finally, if you haven’t had a chance to get ¬†familiar with Matt Fishbeck’s old (genius) material Stranded at Two Harbors will be re-released on vinyl in February. It’s never too late to get acquainted with our generations Ziggy Stardust. Between this and John Maus new album announcement it’s an exciting year for these formerly Lost Angeles artists. For now you can check out the new website that has links to new songs, demos and videos. Finally, check below for a new forward written by Matt Fishbeck for the SPF Noir Mix that Vice tossed aside and listen to a new track.

SPF NOIR FORWARD:

WHO WAS IT, THE GERMS? WHO SAID “WHAT WE DO IS SECRET.” WELL I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. IT’S LIKE HEARING AN EMITT RHODES SONG IN A WES ANDERSON MOVIE, AND THINKING, HEY, THAT’S OURS. AND GETTING STIFF ABOUT IT (AND NOT THE GOOD STIFF). BUT THE FACT IS, THAT ATTITUDE, THAT SAME LINE OF THOUGHT, IS PROFFERED BY THOSE — WE — WHO ALSO GO ‘ROUND SAYING “IN A PERFECT WORLD THIS WOULD BE A HIT, EVERYONE SHOULD BE SINGING THIS” ABOUT SOME ‘HOPE’LESS BEDSIT FAVORITE.

WELL HERE’S WHAT I LISTEN TO. I’M SHARING SOME SECRETS, SURE, BUT IF YOU CARE THEN I CARE. SOME ARE STAPLES IN THE HOLY SHIT CAMP (ELECTRONIC, McCARTHY, THE PINK DOTS), AND SOME ARE TRACKS THAT I JUST CAN’T STOP LISTENING TO THESE DAYS. BASICALLY, IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT THE INSIDE OF MY BRAIN SOUNDS LIKE, HERE’S ME FLASHING. AND YEAH, IT’S ALL VERY PASTY, AND WHITE, AND ENGLISH, BUT FETISHES ARE FETISHES AND DON’T NEED EXPLAINING COS THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE. IT’S LIKE TRYING TO TAKE THE TEMPERATURE OF A PAINTING.

IT OCCURS TO ME THAT MOST OF THIS STUFF ISN’T NEW. THERE IS ONE SONG THAT CAME OUT, IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT, IN THE LAST YEAR (NUNZIO FATTINI; GO TO HIS WEBSITE!¬†NUNZIOFATTINI.COM! YOU’RE WELCOME!). ANOTHER’S ONLY BEEN ON MYSPACE SO FAR (THE JOE WAINE TRACK), BUT WILL BE A 7″ ON POROUS RECORDS QUITE SOON. AND THERE’S A HOLY SHIT NUMBER I COULDN’T RESIST SHARING, MAINLY COS I JUST FINISHED IT LAST WEEK. IT’S CALLED “A PLACE IN THE SUN,” AND IT’S A MARINE GIRLS COVER, AND THIS IS THE FIRST “LIGHT OF DAY” IT HAS SEEN.

AS FOR THE REST, CHANCES ARE THE BULK OF IT IS NEW TO MOST READERS & DOWNLOADERS. I COULD BE WRONG, AND COME TO THINK OF IT, I WOULD LOVE TO MEET ANY OF YOU WHO ARE INTO THEY GO BOOM!! OR ALWAYS, OR IN EMBRACE. I DON’T KNOW, DO POP FREAKS READ VICE? I KNOW MOMUS CONTRIBUTES, OR HAS, SOMETIMES. AND GOD, I’D LOVE NEIL TENNANT OR CATH CARROLL TO GET IN TOUCH.¬†mattfishbeck@gmail.com

I PUT THIS TOGETHER IN THE SPIRIT AND THE MANNER IN WHICH I USED TO MAKE TAPES AT MY FRIEND BRANDT LARSON’S HOUSE. THERE’S AN OLD FURTHER SONG CALLED “GOING TO GLENDORA,” AND THAT’S WHAT THAT’S ABOUT. HOLING UP IN A BIG HOUSE FULL OF RECORDS, LOSING YOURSELF IN A VIBE, AND MAKING YOURSELF A SOUVENIR. BRANDT (AND REX) ALWAYS MADE THE BEST TAPES, BUT I MADE A FEW SEMI-GEMS. GEEZ I MET ARIEL WHILE I WAS MAKING A TAPE AT BRANDT’S.

Molly Nilsson

Swedish born, absurdly talented and most likely not well known only due to her sonic wanderlust rarely leaving Berlin. Think of her as John Maus’ seductress. Just about anything she seems to set her drum machine to is infectiously catchy. Check these videos out:

Her early demos remind me of Mo Tucker’s charming tracks for the Velvets:

Her and Tooth Ache are vibing similarly.
