i think i better follow you around

Alfredo & Edeath, are a couple of music lovers who met later in life but grew up loving almost the same bands and hating others but always listening to music, old and new, and apart from collecting vinyl and books and going to see every good band coming to town, (or a few miles away), got together and created "I think i better follow you around", a website/music blog, where they share all the music they like and help promote upcoming concerts, local bands from San Diego and Tijuana and amazing artists from around the world. I think I better follow you around is an independent project.

Tiburona – “Sola y Feliz

Tiburona released their album “Sola y Feliz” on October 8th, 2021 via Folc Records.

TRACKLIST:

  1. Sola y Feliz
  2. No Me Interesa Tú Opinión
  3. Besos De Sangre
  4. Queremos Guerra
  5. 4L13N
  6. Escuale
  7. Que Viene El Lobo
  8. Tura Satana
  9. Aquí En Mi Nube

They released a video for the title track which was directed by David Iñurrieta.

Tiburona hails from Madrid, Spain. The trio had previously released a 7″. This is their debut album. Across the album the main theme is women empowerment. Taking on the mansplainers. Taking on what freedom is like for them. A previous video they had released was for the aptly titled “No Me Interesa Tú Opinión”. That video was directed by Diego Cendra Woodman.

Those singles were predated by the would be antifascist anthem that tackles that flock of people who tend to go to the ultra right wing of any government. The song is titled (rightfully so), “Ahi Viene El Lobo”.

For the time being their only tour dates that have been announced are in and or around Spain. No dates for the USofA (nor Tijuana) have been announced.

Lau.ra – “Volume 1”

Lau.ra has announced the release of her first collection, “Volume 1”, out April 15 via Needwant.

TRACKLIST

  1. Sideways (feat. Secaina)
  2. You
  3. Chengdu
  4. Wicked (feat. Eliza Legzdina)
  5. Body Go
  6. Don’t Waste My Time (fest. JessB)
  7. Get Creative (feat. Nova)
  8. Blow (feat. Eliza Legzdina)
  9. Don’t Waste My Time (feat. JessB) (Model Man Remix)

The first single she released off the upcoming album was “Blow” featuring Eliza Legzdina.

The 2nd, and most recent single, is “Chengdu” which was made by Lau.ra in China. It’s also the only instrumental song on the record.

The theme line on the album, and previous releases, seem to be an unforgiven and wicked bassline throughout the songs. That’s the line that pierces throughout Lau.ra’s songs/beats is that thumping bass. It’s catchy and is addictive and is soothing and is bouncy and it’s a clean thump to your body. You need to play these songs loud either to yourself or to wake your neighbors up.

No USofA tour dates have been announced. Maybe one day Lau.ra will play Tijuana again.

Melts – “Maelstrom”

Melts have announced the release of their debut album, “Maelstrom”, out May 13th via Mother Sky.

TRACKLIST:
1. Maelstrom
2. Signal
3. Outlier
4. Circular
5. Spectral
6. Waltzer
7. Skyward
8. Tides

Their most recent single is “Waltzer”, this is what Eoin Kenny had to say about it: “The influence for the lyrics came from Rob’s organ line on the track, it has the same mechanical rhythm of a fairground waltzer. The song is set in a fairground with people and machines moving, a couple dancing, giving ground and winning ground, and a tight rope walker diving and returning to the rope. All throwing themselves into something unknown but knowing they’ll return to the same place, like a waltzer spinning.”

They’ve also released two singles before this one. The first one they shared was for the title track “Maelstrom”. This is what the band shared about the song: “‘Maelstrom’ is about a storm that sweeps through a town or a world one day and causes an irreversible change to the order of things. The song is also written from the point of view of someone caught in currents, beyond their own making and understanding and the frustrations felt by someone who feels powerless against the effects of the upheaval.”

The other single released by Melts was for “Outlier”. This is what the band shared about the track: “‘Outlier’ is about the imaginable distance between objects in space and how leaving one way of life and moving on to another life falling into space, into the void. The title refers to an object or person existing at a distance from the centre of the system.”

The band just played their first shows in the USofA at SXSW. No future dates for the the USofA (nor Tijuana) have been announced yet.

Zola Jesus – “Arkhon”

Zola Jesus has announced the release of her new album, “ARKHON”, out May 20th via Sacred Bones.

TRACKLIST:
1. Lost
2. The Fall
3. Undertow
4. Into The Wild
5. Dead and Gone
6. Sewn
7. Desire
8. Fault
9. Efemra
10. Do That Anymore

The first single/video, “Lost”, which is the album’s opening track was done by Mu Tunç and it was shot in Cappadocia. Zola Jesus shared this about it: “I wanted to shoot the video in a place that carried a lot of energy, with someone that I felt understood the spiritual backbone of the song. It was a surprisingly natural process to make this video with Mu Tunc in Turkey. I put my faith in him and in Cappadocia, a labyrinthine city built within 60 million-year-old caves. Throughout human history these caves have served as a citadel for so many different groups of people who went there to get lost. It is a testament to the resilience of humanity, and the durability of our earth.”

About the album’s title she shared this: “Arkons are a Gnostic idea of power wielded through a flawed god. They taint and tarnish humanity, keeping them corrupted instead of letting them find their harmonious selves. I do feel like we are living in an arkhonic time; these negative influences are weighing extremely heavy on all of us.”

No tour dates have been announced yet for the USofA (nor Tijuana).

Bauhaus – “Drink The New Wine”

Bauhaus have released a new single, “Drink The New Wine”. This is their first song together in 14 years.

The band, Peter Murphy, David J, Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins, shared this about the song in a statement: “Drink The New Wine” was recorded last year during lockdown with the four members sharing audio files. The track employs the Surrealists’ ‘Exquisite Corpse’ device whereby each artist adds to the piece without seeing what the others have done. Bauhaus have used this technique in the past to great effect. The title refers to the very first Cadavre exquis’ drawing rendered by André Breton, Marcel Duchamp, Jacques Prévert and Yves Tanguy which included words which when strung together made up the sentence, ‘Le cadavre exquis boiara le vin nouveau’ (‘The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine.”) For the recording, the four musicians each had one minute and eight tracks at their disposal plus a shared sixty seconds plus four tracks for a composite at the end. All done without hearing what the others had laid down. The only common link being a prerecorded beat courtesy of Kevin. The final playback came as synchronistic revelation.”

Bauhaus have some shows lined up, no additional dates have been announced yet: May 14-15: Cruel World Festival, Pasadena, CA
May 17: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Portland, OR
May 20: Paramount Theatre, Seattle, WA

The Smile – “Skrting In The Surface”

The Smile have released a third single, “Skrting In The Surface”, off their debut album that will be released via XL Records.

The video for the song was directed by the BAFTA winner Mark Jenkin. The video was shot in Cornwall’s disused Rosevale Tin Mine. The film was hand developed in water from the mine because of art.

The song sounds like Radiohead because of course it does also the song did originate as a Radiohead song way back when (In Rainbows era) and now it has been revived with a beautiful orchestral arrangement from Jonny Greenwood. Also, the song was produced by Nigel Godrich and mixed by Mikko Gordon.

The Smile will tour from May to July around Europe. No dates have been announced yet for the USofA (nor Tijuana)

Moderat – “Easy Prey”

Moderat have shared the video for their new single, “Easy Prey”, off their new album “MORE D4TA” out May 13th via Monkeytown.

The video was directed by Cyprien Clément-Delmas. This is what the band shared about the song: “The only track on the album whose lyrics were written before the recording process began, it contemplates the relationship between love and independence, lamenting how vulnerable we become when the balance between the two tips too far towards the former. It’s a fraught tale, albeit a beautiful one, and a song where inner turmoil truly takes flight.”

Moderat will be doing what looks like a short, major city, tour and they will be playing San Diego (and LA) in September.

Tool – “Opiate2”
