San Diego's Record Release Roundup

The Black Heart Procession has a new EP out, Blood Bunny/Black Rabbit, from Temporary Residence Limited. Featuring three new songs, the 40-minute set includes their collaboration with dub godfather Lee “Scratch” Perry as well as a ten-minute orchestral reconstruction of “Drugs,” perpetrated by ambient mainstay Eluvium.

Indie electro-dance duo Hyena — featuring Mike Cooper (formerly of Transfer) and Bryan Stratman (owner of Capricorn Studios) — will debut We See You with a release party at Casbah on Friday. “We’ve been working on some special tricks for this one,” says Cooper. “When we play bigger dance clubs, we’ll play some of our remixes to cater to the electro-dance crowd. But when we do the Casbah or smaller venues, we bring more rock elements into our set.”

Jazz crooner Jesse Davis paired up with chanteuse Darci Daniels for a duets CD, It’s About Love, due to drop on October 28, with a release party at Anthology. Around the same time, Bomp Records subsidiary Voxx will reissue a garage-rock classic, the Gravedigger V’s 1986 debut All Black and Hairy, on limited-edition red vinyl.

Mrs. Magician is a new group with members from Drug Wars, Northern Towns, Boomsnake, and First Wave Hello. Their debut seven-inch There Is No God (Thrill Me Records) will see a vinyl-only release on October 29 at Soda Bar. “We may do a Nerves cover or a Pulp cover,” reveals singer-guitarist Jacob Turnbloom.

The Birthinating is the debut from comedic-rapper Grammatical B, hip-hop alter ego of longtime Casbah bartender Ben Johnson (Hostile Combover, Tourettes Lautrec, Long and Short of It). “It’s comedy-based storytelling rap stuff,” he says. Songs include “Do Fries Come with That Walk of Shame?” “Who Ganked My Dank?” and “Don’t Ask Don’t Intel,” which, Johnson says, “was written for a friend from Mexico City who’s being sued by Intel for using the word ‘intel’ in his news service.”

Others dropping trax ’n’ wax this month include the four sisters of Ramekega, whose album Normalcy was recorded in analog, part-time Hillcrest gadfly Rob Halford (Halford IV — Made of Metal), blues diva Miss Erika Davies, psych-surfers Space Nature, and Disney Radio darlings Allstar Weekend, whose full-length Suddenly Yours is essentially an expanded version of the Suddenly EP the band released earlier this year.

New EPs are in the offing via country-ish pedal-steel pickers River City and retro-rockers Heavy Hawaii, whose song “Teen Angel” is the first single off their Art Fag Records debut. Jason Mraz has a live digital EP, Life Is Good, recorded on tour last month and featuring four new songs, as well as a live version of “Coyotes,” from his album We Sing We Dance We Steal Things.

Drew Andrews releases a new EP October 26, Playing Birthday Games, with physical CDs packaged in a hand-sewn box and featuring two bonus tracks not available on digital versions. October 27 will see a new full-length from cult lounge-rocker Gary Wilson, Electric Endicott, which he’ll plug that night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
