TRUX STOP VIDEO FEED IN OUR REALITY

posted September 4th, 2015

Royal Trux..... A band whose very existence and legacy were and are dominated by words and phrases like 'out of it' and 'sabotage' would just decide out of nowhere that they're gonna play another show? The day's come and gone that Royal Trux took the stage at Berserktown II, laying it down on a packed house of rock and roll freaks and weirdos.  Little bits of footage of the performance appeared the day after and just as suddenly disappeared. What the FUCK! Why did... (read more)

DROP INTO THE DUNGEON OF WAND'S DARK HEART

posted September 2nd, 2015

Wand are out there, a voice from beyond; on the new frontier, an absolute powerhouse force to portend! Slipped between countless shows stateside and across the Atlantic while touring for Golem, a NEW record was recorded! 1000 Days pulls a few pages off the calendar, where Wand are accessing new sounds and relationships to make that elusive artwork, the "album". Like, a mystery in twelve parts, but each chapter is musical and comprised of elements that make "music." And with each member of Wand... (read more)

THE GOOD OL’ DAZE

Hey there, brother-sister…it’s been a little minute since we’ve (been) seen (by) you! Now, you got your own thing and we know it, but when you stay away for too long, it’s almost like you’ve gone and missed EVERYTHING. Imagine! Missing everything in the month of August, any-year, USA. And yet – here it is August, and we’ve got plates spinning, men in motion, women of the world taking over – and it hasn’t taken long! So... (read more)

MEG BAIRD'S LIGHT SHINES ON DARKENED EAST COAST

posted August 25th, 2015

Since her move from the City of Brotherly Love to the City by the Bay, Meg Baird has seldom looked back: her pristine third solo outing, Don't Weigh Down the Light, reflects on the solitude of leaving home and arriving anew in a spiritual manner. With such a centering transition, it's only natural that Meg refrain from returning to her native coast for some time. But the clarity appears to have taken hold, enough so that a pilgrimage back home seems absolutely right --... (read more)

AN EXPLANATORY HEXADIC VIDEO! HEXADIC BOOK TALK AND 6OOA TOUR BEGINS THIS WEEKEND!

posted August 20th, 2015

Originated as a personal process to combat his own native guitar playing instincts, Ben Chasny's concepts have morphed into a system of composition that approaches the guitar seeking surprise and transcendence in random tonal relationships, touching on musical and philosophical inspirations that have existed for thousands of years. Six Organs of Admitance's Hexadic release this past February utilized the Hexadic System in its composition, execution and production, and since then Ben has toured the US and Europe in support of not only the...

SAILING AWAY WITH THE BLUE JEAN COMMITTEE ON LATE NIGHT TV!

The breeze blowing through your hair, making you feel fine, yeah...blowing through the jasmine in your mind. It's summertime, the perfect season for pouring some blue-eyed soul through your speakers while you chill down at the marina.

Inspired by such laid back duos as Loggins & Messina, Seals & Crofts, Becker & Fagan and England Dan and John Ford Coley and well-versed in the "Lido Shuffle," to boot, The Blue Jean Committee were the proud products of the late 70's Northampton, Massachusetts music... (read more)

JAVELIN UNENDING! BILL CALLAHAN PLAYS AGAIN

posted August 18th, 2015

Oh, WE'LL show you a hero! Let's talk about Bill Callahan, drover in the true American maverick tradition! Over the years, his music has grown from sparse heart made-and-homefelt expressions into its epic present state of deft and lustrous compositions and back again! His nuanced baritone vocals exude a careful soulfulness that allows for  loss, love and all the other ambiguities in the stretch of a single song. Bill's plain-spoken delivery is the exquisite center of his gift, transcending our concepts of songs... (read more)

OM EYE GOD, EURO BELIEVE IT!

posted August 12th, 2015

The music never sleeps in Al Cisneros' OM-world - it moves and grooves eternally, a repetitive vibration of heaviness ever growing. With a vibe this constant, any time is a great time for a tour, any place on Jehovah's green Earth! Thus, a globe was spun deep, and a finger extended to stop it - landing somewhere in the fields of Europe - eureka, huzzah and salaam! The destination continent. And so, making their way forthwith to cities and villages all across Europe... (read more)
