[MP3] The Oohlas - Gone



I'll be blatantly honest with you - I thought The Oohlas were from New York City. Ultragrrl has been talking about them for years (and eventually signed them to her burgeoning label - Stolen Transmission) and I have not seen them on an L.A. concert calendar until a few weeks ago. I never made the connection that YES! INDEED they are an L.A. based band and a rather excellent one at that!

Curse me for never really listening to their music before. It's really quite fantastic. I had a really hard time spelling their band name (blame the dyslexia) and after numerous attempts to find them on myspace (myspace.com/theoolahs, myspace.com/theoohlahs, myspace.com/oolahs AGH FUCK IT) I finally gave up. Finally my friend Cara sent me their new album, Next Stop Pop, and I have been rockin it all day :)

The Oohlas are playing all over Los Angeles leading up to their album's release on Sept. 26th. You can catch them TONIGHT at the Silverlake Lounge with Kissing Cousins. Admission is only 7 bucks.

COOL ON THE INTER-NERD:
Absolutepunk.net posted a fantastic interview with Birdmonster - whose debut album, No Midnight, will be officially out in record stores NATIONWIDE next Tuesday Aug. 29th! The boys talk about their distro deal w/ spinART, the blogosphere, and hint at the next album (think Dream Theatre - One 55 minute song. haha) [READ MORE]

COLD WAR KIDS did a session for Daytrotter.com which includes two new tracks "God Make Up Your Mind" and "Passing The Hat." This is all I can say: HO.........LY.......CRAP. You can download MP3s from the session and read an exclusive interview RIGHT HERE.

Trent from Pink is the New Blog is a bigtime fan of The Oohlas. Ran into him at The Lovemakers show last week @ The Echo since The Oohlas were one of the openers. Nice guy... anyway, he might show up to support the band at the Silverlake Lounge tonight.
