Bandcamp Track of the Day: Blood Candy || Dead Moon.

Formed in March of 2014, Los Angeles quartet Blood Candy list their influences as “space, magic, making out, dreams, murder, love.”

If you ever wished for a femme-fronted take on the sound of The Jesus and Mary Chain, you will probably love Blood Candy. Fans of Smashing Pumpkins, Black Tambourine, and My Bloody Valentine should all take note as well.

"Dead Moon" is the lead track from the band's outstanding newly-released debut EP of the same name, available for download here.

WTSH Exclusive Video Premiere: Force Publique || Excess.

We think many of our readers will agree that Force Publique's video for "Excess" is a unique fusion of completely revolting and totally adorable, and we're very pleased and proud to premiere it here. This is the Portland, Oregon duo's first video effort since the cool clip they did for their very fine take on Smashing Pumpkin's "Today".

"Excess" appears on the new digital/cassette EP release Bloom, which will go on sale via Force Publique's Bandcamp page on Monday, June 15th. (We posted another track from Bloom here.) The band, which makes a huge dark cavern of sound for only two people, has opened for several WTSH favorites including Cold Cave, The Soft Moon, Young Prisms, and A Place to Bury Strangers. They will be touring the West Coast this summer.
