OM IS LIFE, OM IS LIVE

posted September 18th, 2014

Praise be! Hallelujah, even! The indomitable vibrational force that embodies the one and only OM will be burning at alters in select US cities next month! As devotees and followers know,  God is Good and OM carve out their own mystic path no matter where they go, and what stage they play on. That path always leads in one direction - higher! With the head-stock of their bass and drumsticks pointed to the skies, the band has traversed the corporeal wasteland that is earth, spreading... (read more)

SOAR INTO ZORIS WITH FEATHERED FISH!

posted September 17th, 2014

End time! The earth is going cold, but the ground is hot! Only one way forward and that's inside a pair of Feathered Fish's very own line of Zoris! In case you forgot (and how could you?) Feathered Fish is the brainchild of Jennifer Herrema and award winning designer Pamela Love. Sharing a namesake with the 1966 Arthur Lee song reminding us that both our girls are Pisces, Feathered Fish merges their un-fuck-with-able attitude amidst innovative design and vision. After collaborating on a... (read more)

WHO IS SHE? EIKO ISHIBASHI

posted September 16th, 2014

Sheesh, somehow it's been less than a year since we de-veiled the genuine jewel called Imitation of Life from Eiko Ishibashi. Well-heard in her native Japan, Imitation gave us pests from the west a chance an ear to what all the Nipponese press is on about - and on wax, to boot! Even in Japan, where she is a STAR, Eiko's music is only pressed on CD. For those of who feast on the culture and sounds of the east, Eiko is an interesting... (read more)

MAGIK MARKERS SURRENDER TO THEIR EUROPEAN FANTASY

posted September 15th, 2014

No longer just a hope, a prayer, or sick fodder for the degenerative European populace's weekly vigil, Magik Markers are rising up from these decidedly unmagikal United States to land in Europe and make their Markers once again! They've named it the "Tapped Phone / Tapped Psych Tour 2014" and if you're a European resident, go ahead - listen in! That's the way we do in the ol' US(NS)A. The Markers leave it all out there for anyone to hear on their albums really, but... (read more)

CAVE INVITE YOU FOR "THE RIDE" OF YOUR LIFE

posted September 12th, 2014

Ever since we announced Release, we've been on the edge of our seats, excitedly anticipating this very moment, where we get to talk about it further! Release (officially out October 21st) compiles songs from sides of variously sized formats, with one thing in common - they've never been released on LP! The early days of CAVE, these jams were recorded and transferred using a variety of methods: 4 tracks, 8 tracks, and VHS tapes (yeah that's right), and each played a part where... (read more)

A BLACK BANANAS PARTY NEVER STOPS WHEN YOU'RE “CREEPING THE LINE!"

posted September 11th, 2014

Jennifer Herrema and her funky bunch of Black Bananas are ever-ripening! After the release of Electric Brick Wall in June, the 'Nanas invite you right back into da club— ahem, the pole-dancing club, that is! That’s right, with a refreshingly open set of core values and a corresponding shortage of shame, Jennifer (plus a life size teddy bear) sways with an untouchable swagger while the pros handle the dancing. With grooves and vocals tweaked to perf-wack-tion atop throbbing, sub-beats, the ladies are able to ‘Stop’... (read more)

DOPE BODY FOR LIFER, YO!

posted September 9th, 2014

It's Tuesday, which is as good a day as any to remind you there's a new Dope Body album coming October 21st! Appropriately named Lifer, it appeals to the inner demon rocker in all of us, living long and hard in this musical (and otherworldly) existence with a healthy dose of hedonism. One track from Lifer, "Hired Gun," has already been revealed and it's a ripper, jack! But there's more: the band created a nifty trailer for Lifer, and it's absolutely... (read more)

MANIPULATING THE MANIPULATOR

posted September 8th, 2014

Manipulator is one of the year’s very finest rock records, which is a nice thing to be able to say about a record just about to break into the American Top 40! True fact dat. The songs, the sounds, the singing, "The Singer," - the whole conception! Really though - Manipulator is just getting rolling. Release week was highlighted by four nights of sold-out madness at the epicenter of Ty's LA stomping ground, The Echo - and now the Manipulator band is rocket-riding its... (read more)

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)

posted September 2nd, 2014

We love it when September kicks off with a burning anthem, and whoo-ha, have Purling Hiss just lit one that's particularly blazin'!
