The Wimps





Recluse Raccoon brings their soft psych sounds to The Camel 12/9

While the name Recluse Raccoon may have the sheen of simple children's programing, the Richmond-based three-piece is far from delivering clean, simplistic tunes. Billing themselves as a psychedellic-jazz-pop band, the group is certainly not too shy to serve up angular melodies, but Recluse Racoon's tracks never stray too far from structure--they often root themselves with a soft, driving tom-tom--and create tracks that edge toward experimental, but never feel loose. Maybe what's most striking about the band is the voices--gossamer vocals that border on ghostly create a distinct, ethereal, quality to their songs. With a sound that inspires introspection, the band is definitely our suggestion for your next grey, moody day. You can catch Recluse Raccoon playing The Camel 12/9 with Lightfields, The Wimps and Get in the Car, but in the meantime, stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni





Check out The Wimps' self titled debut album

Part-time wimps, part-time Righmond rockers, The Wimps bring forth a peculiar blend of 60’s pop, alternative rock, and psychedelia. Listening to “Dream Girl” (the 10th track off their album), something comforting about this band’s rustic sound makes its way inside us. It’s vintage. It’s nostalgic. It’s the 1x12 combo amp spring reverbed guitar tone with a hint of tube crunch, not to mention the twangy, speech-driven vocal stylings of Brent McCormic, topped off with quirky lyrics of empty days and empty wallets. It takes us back to one of our favorite records from yester-millennium: Eric Burdon’s 1964 “House of the Rising Sun”. Take a listen to their full album The Wimps down below. -Ashley Muniz





The Wimps bring their throwback rock and roll to Strange Matter on 8.09

 The Wimps could easily be mistaken for a 60s band that never quite made it big, instead they're a young Richmond based quartet who formed less than a year ago and take inspiration from prominent artists such as The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, and The Stooges. In April they released their debut self-titled full length, which features 10 garage pop tracks dripping with infectious melodies and catchy lyrics. The record highlights a variety of different sounds from the 60s that range from the easy going melodic pop of female singers like Lesley Gore to the R&B soul of artists like Percy Sledge. It also contains the energy and attitude of garage rock characterized by buzzing guitars and precise drumwork. The Wimps will be playing Strange Matter on August 9th in support of Lady God. - John Honan
