THE UNBORN CAPITALIST INNERVATES- CORY HANSON ON TOUR!

posted November 30th, 2016

The present climate calls for a revolution. Life calls for music, for lyric, and if you can somehow handle them without needing to possess them, they echo back again as life, vital in its total excess. Cory Hanson's debut solo album, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo emerges from a panic, a car wreck, shivering with sudden liquefaction. But the images are plain, arrayed in light. This illumination of organized understanding provides alacrity in these dark times, even just for a half hour of recorded music.

TWELVE MORE INCHES FROM CATE LE BON

posted November 21st, 2016

Bonus! With the new Cate Le Bon not long gone, here's four candles not placed on the original Crab Day cake for you to hear as the titular holiday comes round once again.

Cate writes: "Rock Pool" is the killed darlings from the Crab Day sessions brought back to life on a classic 2-2 formation. Written under the same banner of the impossibly absurd and emerging to unimaginable bedlam."

Produced by Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, and featuring musicians H. Hawkline,... (read more)

TY SEGALL RETURNS WITH "ORANGE COLOR QUEEN"

posted November 15th, 2016

Ty Segall has made whole records that wrestle with realities - fighting against some, pulling mightily to bring others into being. His new self-titled record - the next record after Emotional Mugger, Manipulator, Sleeper,Twins, Goodbye Bread, Melted, Lemonsand the first self-titled album that started it up in the now-distant year of 2008 - is a clean flow, a wash of transparency falling into a world that needs to see a few things through clearly, to their logical end....

PURLING HISS FILL THE SOLO CUPS OF YOUR DREAMS

posted November 9th, 2016

To celebrate High Bias, the new Purling Hiss release, Illuminated Brew Works assembled their most loving homage to good, old-fashioned, trashy, American macro-beers; just the kind of beer that built the sonic annihilation via heavy six-string freakout of High Bias. Dig it: a premium adult beverage that bottles the taste of the full-tilt tunes, aggro riffs, feedback peals, stoned soul-searching pop turnarounds of Philly's Purling Hiss!

"Purling Hiss" is stacked up with Pilsner, Munich, rice adjuncts and noble hops to create... (read more)
