Coltrane Motion

Some brand new music and spring tour dates from our Chicago friends Coltrane Motion. For those not in the know Coltrane Motion is the sound of Matt Dennewitz’s 60’s garage fuzz guitar storm and Michael Bond’s powerhouse drum loops, synthesizer, and soaring organ riffs blended into a frenzied dance groove. Their new The Year Without A Summer single continues their string of excellent releases. The A-Side is a driving rocker punctuated by a dark, somewhat sinister sounding synth hook, while The B-Side, Maya Blue, slows it down a bit for a more rhythmic psychedelic feel. Get it now on super cool colored vinyl 7″ and break in those new dancing shoes for when they hit your town.  See you all next Tuesday night in Philly.

Coltrane Motion : Songs About Music and Winter Tour Dates

Here’s a hot one from my inbox today, the newest record, Songs About Music, from Chicago band Coltrane Motion. Imagine if you could travel back in time to the era of 60’s fuzzed out guitar pop, but bring back a laptop and all of your knowledge of the dance music of the 80’s & 90’s up until now. That’s the sound of Coltrane Motion, rhythmic and danceable yet filled with warm guitar distortion and swirling keyboard sounds which make it sound anything but cold. Guaranteed to get you up and shaking your thing. Be sure to catch them live over the next couple weeks if they’re coming near you as their show should be hot enough to melt even the coldest winter freeze. If you enjoy bands like LCD Soundsystem, Holy F*ck, Walter Meego, etc. this will rock your world.
