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)

THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD ON DISPLAY IN SELECT CITIES!

posted November 4th, 2016

Earth People! Brothers! Sisters! Neighbors! The legend has returned. Hear the voices, chanting a pulse - Kong.. Kong... Kong... KONG! King Kong awakens! King Kong has been known for concept records like Me Hungry (about a funky caveman and his illicit love with a yak) and The Big Bang (about a funky spaceman and his obsession with Planet Kong) - but more than anything, King Kong have made records of songs to get FUNKY to. Now they're back in the... (read more)

OM EYE GAWD! OM'S WEST COAST TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK!

posted November 3rd, 2016

The OM vibrations are getting stronger and stronger leading up to the start of as their upcoming tour! In just over a week, the West coast will feel a tectonic plate shift of a different source when Al Cisneros and co. bring the low heavy to their towns and villages. These cities may experience an even greater shrink to their coast lines when all is said and done - if nothing else, their inhabitants will certainly revel in the meditative state of lightheadedness that our...

ALERT! YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS NEW SINGLE FROM MAJOR STARS

posted November 3rd, 2016

In a world of bleeps, bloops, light shows and pyrotechnics, Major Stars shine bright with pure, unfiltered ROCK N' ROLL. The highly anticipated Motion Set will finally blast off into the high heavens on November 11th, but here's a quick taste of what's to come! The album commences with "Alert", an energetic, in-yer-face jam that absolutely rips from the first note onward. The guitar holy trinity (consisting of Kate Biggar, Wayne Rogers and Tom Leonard) squeals into absolute ecstasy with harmonic riffage surrounding... (read more)

PAPA M FINDS NIRVANA IN "BLOOM"

posted November 1st, 2016

Papa M's Highway Songs is a collection of sounds from an old boy as a new man, featuring a few extra metal parts inserted in key areas of the legs. This is something new again, extra savage at times - like the kind of record you might make in between a suicide attempt and a severe motorcycle accident. Add in a little time for a few sessions to finish the album after the bike accident, and you are literally talking about Highway Songs!

UNBORN CAPITALIST PREVIEW #2: A PERFECT "REPLICA"

posted October 28th, 2016

Cory Hanson's solo debut, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo, will be issued on November 11th, but because November feels so far away (and the anticipation is just KILLING us) we're compelled to share another song from it today! The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo is a lyrical rendering of personal/political woes centered around the shifting role of the Other, while reveling in ambiguous, often surrealist images. Stepping outside the multi-hued mayhem of his work with Wand, Cory Hanson's vocal delivery is disciplined... (read more)

WATCH PURLING HISS' "FOLLOW YOU AROUND" AND FOLLOW THEM AROUND ON TOUR STARTING THIS WEEKEND!

posted October 25th, 2016

High Bias is officially "out there," and with it comes an accepted truth that Purling Hiss have formulated THE guitar record of the year.  High octane singles like the anthemic "Fever" and the thick, chorus drenched fog of "3000 AD" showcase Polizze and co.'s ability and affinity for powerful, guitar wielding jams designed to cause violent nods of approval from heads everywhere. But hey, the record isn't just a sonic annihilation via heavy six-string freakouts! As proven with the song (and now video for)... (read more)

HAPPY AnniDIVERSary!

posted October 23rd, 2016

Joanna Newsom friends and faithful, we wish you a happy first AnniDIVERSary! The standard gift for the occasion is a timepiece, but watch out — here's a piece of time out of time that you'll never not have back again! Recorded for the Divers album, this represents the rarest of all birds: an actual unreleased outtake recorded at a Joanna Newsom session.

"Make Hay" is for the divers and the delvers to divine — is it just another piece or the... (read more)

WAND-ERING WHAT TO DO IN NOVEMBER?

posted October 21st, 2016

Geez, it sure feels like it's been 1000 Days since we last heard from Wand! Thankfully that's all about to change, as a large portion of the population has the opportunity to immerse themselves in Wand's live sonic density beginning next month, in Europe! With all the noise (er, strings) surrounding Wand front-man Cory Hanson's new solo LP, the timing may seem a bit odd - but in the world of Wand, everything is odd! This won't be your parent's Wand,... (read more)

posted October 21st, 2016
