BE LIKE MIKE, WATCH THE VIDEO FOR "COLD SHINE"

posted April 10th, 2018

How to Get Your Record Played In Shops is a new direction in music from Mike Donovan, a busman's holiday from his guitar-based subterranean pop via a serpentine, keyboard-laden path. It makes for fulfilling solo-artist listening; the shards and trickles from his broken music-box are slivers of solitude, echoes of weird scenes and falsetto-hued odes all designed to crack your spirit and seep it into the atmosphere around your ears, while merging with your subconsciousness below. How To Get Your Record Played In Shops... (read more)

WAND WILL BE THE HIGHWAY - TASTE THEIR PERFUMES

posted April 9th, 2018

Today's a great day! And we're sure you know why too - because this day is the closest we've yet been to the release date of Wand's next rec, the 12"EP/CDEP called "Perfume"! It's set for about six weeks from now - May 25th, to be precise - which bodes well for your levels of spring fever, break, cleaning and all the rest of the rebirth rituals in which we'll all soon be engaged in anticipation of the summer breakout.

"HORSES"

It was a silver age of 7” singles in the early 1990’s.  The third single attributed to a Palace conglomerate was the equine-themed “Horses”/”Stable Will”.  “Horses” was recorded by Steve Good, who has recorded live underground shows in Louisville for decades.  The session took place primarily at a house shared by Bob Nastanovitch, Will Oldham, and Britt Walford.  Photographs from the session show Brian McMahan playing the drums, Walford playing bass, and Todd Brashear playing the lap...

JOHN REBOURN LIVE IN JAPAN

posted April 5th, 2018

An evening in a coffee house in Kyoto 40 years ago has lingered fondly in the memories of those who were there. Now, the stellar performance of John Renbourn that night is available for all to hear on Live in Kyoto 1978John Renbourn, along with his sometimes partner Bert Jansch (with whom he formed Pentangle in the 1960s), has been passed away for these past few years - but the music that he made continues to inspire. Renbourn's style mixed these traditions with classical, jazz, world and early...

CIRCUIT DES TOUR DATES!

posted April 3rd, 2018

Wherever she may roam, Circuit des Yeux's work ethic can easily be attributed to the continuous, compulsive spreading of the Reaching For Indigo gospel. We aren't complaining - and neither are the hordes of live music fans that support each and every show in whatever country, city, and venue that compulsion takes CdY. See, Circuit des Yeux, including not just the electrifying Haley Fohr but also her backing band of talented and dialed in pals, has a presence that is simply undeniable.

OHIO RIVER BOAT SONG

It was the summer of 1992 and Todd Brashear invited his friend Will Oldham to come live with him in Bloomington, Indiana where Brashear was in the Audio Engineering program at IU.  Oldham moved into a house with Brashear and his schoolmate Grant Barger, and soon they began working on music all together.  They set up a weekend session at the house with Barger at the controls, using his 8-track cassette recording machine (not to be...

A FAIR FLOWER BLOSSOMS THROUGHOUT THE LAND

posted March 29th, 2018

What News is Alasdair Roberts' fourth album focused exclusively on the performance of traditional songs, all of which aim to bring the auld songs forward, but also to re-imagine them for modern listeners. What News features David McGuinness on pianofortes and fortepianos of various vintages (plus the odd dulcitone) and Amble Skuse providing electronic embellishments, while Alasdair sets the guitar aside (with one or two exceptions) to focus on his singing. This is in part to allow the unique qualities of David and Amble's... (read more)

A WOLF AT BIG EARS

posted March 23rd, 2018

Bonnie Prince Billy's cosmic path is passing through Tennessee this weekend - more specifically, through Knoxville, and to be even more precise, through the Big Ears Festival that's happening RIGHT NOW. This isn't just any normal Bonnie Prince manistation - which is not to imply that there IS such a thing - instead, both he and Cheyenne Mize are performing with Norweigian vocalist supreme, Susanna, this evening.  In and among the surprises of the performance will be included songs from Bonny's recently-released Wolf...
