THE PLANETS ALIGN FOR THE RETURN OF ESPERS

posted August 13th, 2018

Espers' meshing and merging of synergistic elements and cosmic reverberations construct a trans-formative experience for all involved, but for the past several years, the only way to be experienced as such was by listening to their amazing records.  Whelp, that's about to change! The original group (Greg Weeks, Meg Baird, Brooke Sietinsons, Helena Espvall, Otto Hauser) are coming back together for a string of special performances in and around their old stomping grounds on the East Coast. Espers... (read more)

More adventures for what we may call the Babblers Band (Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiely, Will Oldham and Angel Olsen), under the auspices of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. There were two songs from the WOLFROY GOES TO TOWN batch of constructed jammers for which there was neither time nor psychological space to complete during the WOLFROY sessions. However, everybody knew how to play the songs and wanted to track them, so Oldham booked time at David... (read more)

While Masaki Batoh is currently featured on Bandcamp, his prime moving progressive/psychedelic/classic rock outfit, The Silence, is set to tour all across the wonderful cities of Japan! By the heavens, if you've been fortunate to encounter Batoh in concert in any of his incarnations, you've learned something about the hammer of the gods. The Silence are perhaps the most intense of the bunch - check Nine Suns, One Morning - the most primal and authentic in their rock n' roll temple worship, an attribute that... (read more)

Will Oldham first heard Kevin Coyne and Dagmar Krause’s BABBLE record from friends Rich Schuler (the original drummer for Louisville’s King Kong). He became engrossed and enchanted, maybe a little obsessed, to the point where he began to envision covering the entire record from beginning to end. The biggest issue Oldham faced in undertaking this endeavor was that the music required a skilled, emotional, dynamic female singing counterpart, and he hadn’t yet met someone to perfectly fit the bill. He played the record... (read more)
