It's been over two years since Orlando neo-psych band Timothy Eerie released any music. Oh, but what a couple years it's been — you know, only some of the most clenched, anxious times seen in generations. Yes, we could all use a pill right now.
As if hearing that call like a trusty dealer, these psychedelic true believers have just re-emerged with a new single. To mellow the harsh we've all been suffering, "We're Going to Make It" keeps it lifted and on the sunny side by breezing in on a cloud of Technicolor optimism. The beckoning four-minute escape is now streaming everywhere. And this week, you can hear it live when they open for Surfer Blood (8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, Will's Pub, $15 advance or $17 day of show).
Once you land back in hard reality, though, you should probably armor up. To that end, dive into the recently released Sancocho by Orlando punk band the TransDimensionalizers. Their sophomore work and first release in three years, this six-song mini-album is a straight dose of system-sick punk rock that peppers in just enough angular cuts, tempo shifts and a dash of punk en español to keep things interesting. It's out on streamers now.
C.B. Carlyle & the Desert Angels are a promising young band from Lake County that's only begun to emerge this year with a particularly atmosphere-rich brand of country music. Rather than our native swamps, their sound instead evokes wide Western horizons. Their swooning new single, "Sweet Violence," is one of the best examples yet of the high country drama that this band is making a name with. It's currently a name-your-price download on Bandcamp.
