STAGNANT POOLS — TONIGHT @ THE SCO WITH CYMBALS EAT GUITARS

StagnantPools2

CONCERT ALERT!

Cymbals Eat Guitars + Stagnant Pools 

10 pm

The ‘Sco

$3 OC ID / $8 WO

We’ve all heard of Cymbals Eat Guitars, but what about Stagnant Pools? DJ Alex has the “inside scoop”:

hqdefault

Stagnant Pools are one of those bands I found through another band that I found through another band on Facebook. This was a few years ago, at the height of my My Bloody Valentine phase, and not long after my brother and I started our two-piece band, The Gentlemen Broncos. So of course I was excited by two people playing something like shoegaze. The song “Consistency” really struck a cord with me. The swirling distortion was everything I loved about shoegaze, and proof that two people could make that sound. Plus the opening line (“This i the last place that I want to be…”) is dramatic in all the right ways. My brother and I never actually wrote any shoegaze, but this song is still super groovy. What a tune from some fellow dudes trying to make it.

what’s your show called and when is it?

It’s called Horse Saliva. It’s Mondays 8pm-9pm

your show in 3 words

released this week

compare your show to a movie… why that movie?

The Indiana Jones movie with Sean Connery in it because it’s also about looking for treasure that you’ll only find if you have a pure heart. Also sometimes I feel like a kooky old knight.

your favorite WOBC show (when and which dj)

Truly a hard question because we’re shreddin’ this semester. Earwax is always excellent (DJ MJ, Tuesdays 4-5 pm). Junky Bea’s got great taste and is super fun ‘cause you never know when she’s gonna be popping in for a set. 12-Inch Single (Steve Friday’s 6-8) is the perfect soundtrack to get you jazzed for the weekend. But I’m honestly most excited about Live From Studio B because it’s as good as anything any “professional media outlet” puts out and also I love Oberlin bands and TV.

favorite band right now

Probably Game Theory. They’re not new or anything but they’ve got a big catalog of weirdo pop songs, kind of a midway point between 80s pop and the work of the late Lou Reed. Recommended for weirdos.

who in the world do you wish would listen to your show (dead or alive)?

Somebody that can pay me to do this. Ryan Schreiber? Carles? The eBay dude?

OS MUTANTES AT THE ‘SCO TOMORROW 11/12

Everybody’s favorite Brazilian psychedelic tropcalia-punk band OS MUTANTES is coming to the ‘Sco tomorrow night!


mutantes2

Os Mutantes + Capsula

10 PM

The ‘Sco

$5 OC ID / $12 WO

WOBC was very lucky to give away two pairs of tickets to the show. DJs that gave away the tickets wrote a lil somethin’ bout their favorite Os Mutantes song to get ready for the show:

“Deculpe, babe” … a song I first heard the summer after 10th grade. I was very sad that summer, listening almost exclusively to the Velvet Underground and Yo La Tengo. Walking by the train tracks at dusk, trying to teach myself to whistle and be “ok on my own”. It was relatively fruitless, but that’s hard to tell when you’re ****** all the time. Then I found this song. A friend showed it to me. I lay down with my hands behind my head and closed me eyes. It was late at night. The words were sweet and sonorous, but the energy was sweeter. Have you ever watched that movie Enter the Void? When I listened to this song, the vinyl crackling hypnotically behind the rhythms, the guitar line drifting fluidly through my brain, I felt like what happens in that movie. Except it wasn’t fucked up or tragic or depressing or scary. It was peaceful, sublime, transcendent. It was a release, a solace, a sensual bliss that seemed to dissipate my sorrows from right before my eyes, like when you wake up startled and confused and wipe the crusty film that formed while you slept from your eyes. My depression was the film; “Desculpe, babe” was the hand smearing the film away. – Plett

My favorite Os Mutantes song is “Que Tem Medo de Brincar de Amor”, from their 1970 album “A Divina Comédia ou Ando Meio Desligado.” It’s a perfect mix of Os Mutantes’  psychedelic rock sound and a more pop-rock, Beach Boys-influenced sound, in terms of its usage of various sound effects (a la “You Still Believe in Me” and many of the other tracks on “Pet Sounds”) and the California-esque accent that Rita Lee takes on at various points throughout the track. – Melissa 

The burst of manic laughter that begins A Minha Menina is the perfect way to start a song that sounds sort the Black Lips if they had been playing in the 60′s… and were Brazilian. So maybe not that much like the Black Lips after all. But that same sense of a wild good time is there. A Minha Menina (My Girl) is a song for those days when nothing gets done, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.-Alex
