EARTHLINGS TAKE NOTICE—DAN’L BOONE BEAMS DOWN A MUSIC VIDEO

posted September 3rd, 2014

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast, infinite, and timeless as space (big bang is only a theory, man). It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call…The Goldilocks Zone. Dan’l Boone are in fixed orbit, destined to travel the space-ways of... (read more)

THE GEORGE-EDWARDS GROUP GIVE THE 3RD DEGREE

posted August 29th, 2014

The strange and wonderful home recordings of The George-Edwards Group were recorded in the 1970s, yet they're marked by natural tape sounds that give them a timeless space. Having thus far provided two full albums of sanguine melody and mood, 38:38 and Archives, it's time now to prep our universal ear for the third installment of the book of George-Edwards, Chapter III!

Chapter III of The George-Edwards Group archives draws from deep in the pockets of their sporadic later embodiment.... (read more)

BITCHIN BAJAS ARE IN TUNE, ARE YOU?

posted August 27th, 2014

It's hard to believe it's still the same week as it was yesterday, but it is! And yesterday happened to be the most excellent release date of Bitchin' Bajas' self-titled opus. Often flying under the radar of their own volition, it's become increasingly clear the Bajas can't be anyone's best kept secret for long, and Bitchin Bajas is the reason. Over 70 minutes of slow moving acoustics, electronics, and tape machinery, with string arrangements and field recordings fleshing the bone, Bitchin Bajas changes your... (read more)

DEATH REVEAL NEW VIDEO! "WE'RE GONNA MAKE IT"

posted August 21st, 2014

Death's just kept on knockin' ever since 2009, when ...For The Whole World To See sprung to life, re-energizing a band by resescuitating a crucial slab of rock music that had first been made too soon before going unnoticed for over 30 years. After the doors opened and the Hackney brothers walked through, there was no stopping Death from getting to everyone! Reunion gigs turned into full on tours, new demo recordings surfaced in Spiritual, Mental, Physical form, the band appeared on The Arsenio... (read more)

"LIKE THAT," Y'ALL

posted August 20th, 2014

"Clean and full and never hungry/want to live like that" goes the song, and the point is clear - the singer (us) wants a life that he (we) cannot have, and until something better comes along, he (and 99% of mankind) are consigned instead to dream of crossing class lines that WE WILL NEVER CROSS and experiencing the best things in life THAT WE WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE. For our lives are comprised of certain inevitabilities, as solid and inflexible as statues; as inert as our... (read more)

NEIL HAMBURGER SCHTICKS IT OUT ALL OVER THE UK

posted August 15th, 2014

It's August, and that can only mean one thing - no, no, not that it's time to check out for yet another bank holiday - not 'til next Monday anyway - no, today, it means it's time for Neil Hamburger's nearly annual trip to the UK, wherein he eliminates any doubt that he's the greatest American comedic product, one classic gag at a time! And with one fewer of them left in this world today, let's be sure to appreciate those carrying the torch... (read more)

CAVE PLAN RELEASE, MASSIVE CONTINENTAL EUROPEAN TOUR!

posted August 14th, 2014

After last year's icing on the CAVE, Threace, who knew when in the world there'd be another CAVE record? Yet once again, and in perfect rhythm (it's what they do), CAVE deliver! Due out on Drag City in October, Release compiles jams from the sweltering heart of CAVE that didn't make it onto their three LPs and three EPs.

Anyone who's heard their albums can attest that CAVE have a fresh, yet well-seasoned ear for long-play records, and each one shows their... (read more)
