RANDOMIZE YOUR FRIENDS! JOIN THE HOWLING HEX'S MILE-HIGH CLUB

posted March 15th, 2016

Neil Michael Hagerty and The Howling Hex are opening up a whole new rando-cando of whoop ass on yall! For the first time since 2013, the man called Hagerty & the Hex have beefed up their efforts into the creation of a full-length album. Denver, which drops April 15th, features Neil's guitar playing beefed all the way up to ELEVEN atop the randomly democratic rhythm of the New Border Sound, which is bigger and faster than ever.

Case in point-the first single... (read more)

WE"VE GOT LEVITATION!

posted March 9th, 2016

Thalia Hall, it's like we love you or something! Two Ty shows down already this week, and we're heading for the ceiling of our natural experiential threshold. We may or may not be experienced (is it for us to say?) but we're prepared nonetheless to swoop down and hear the sound and movements of the Trux - Royal Trux, that is, along with the handful of worthy fellow-travellers (including another two we call our own) playing out Pilsen-way this weekend at Levitation Chicago!

LAETITIA SADIER LEADS THE WAY TO GERMANY AND THE UK

posted March 8th, 2016

Laetitia Sadier shines on! Still cruising the world over and under off the back of her magnificent Something Shines LP, she's poised to embark on a solid stint through the forward-looking back-lands of Germany, a slate of shows beginning in the fresh n' hip center of the humanities, Cologne, and running 5 nights across the country, landing in Berlin. Then, following a quick layover in Copenhagen for a one-off winner, Ms. Sadier gives the UK punters what they want -  elevated music, something between a... (read more)

LET RANGDA EAT YOUR SINS - DEVOUR THEIR NEW VIDEO WITH YOUR OWN EYES!

posted March 4th, 2016

Galloping  through your synapses like a ceaseless wind, Rangda intrinsically thin the herd of boring-ass rock bands that flood your news feeds. Theirs is the natural order; deeply abraded but armed with fury, serpentine wisdom and the ability to seamlessly meld tightly structured riffage with the sound of the free! Unleashed on February 19th, The Heretic's Bargain is a supercharged full length, rife with dynamic and aggressive movements; the sum total of three distinct musical minds at work TOGETHER.

Which brings us to their... (read more)

NEED A BABYSITTER? THE RED KRAYOLA GOT YOU COVERED!

posted March 3rd, 2016

Dig it, a newly-unearthed artifact from the long history of The Red Krayola: 1984's previously-unheard Baby and Child Care! Every year, we discover in our society the injustices of history in many and myriad forms. Surely among the most profound realizations of 2016 will be that the heads of (record) industry circa 1984 did not hear a fantastic new release when the tapes for Baby and Child Care were played to them! Grooving sinuously in prime mid-80s form in a production redolent with... (read more)

HAVE YOUR CATE VID AND SEE IT LIVE TOO!

posted February 29th, 2016

With her much-anticipated fourth album Crab Day due for release on April 15th, Cate Le Bon has today unveiled a video to new single 'Wonderful'! Directed by regular collaborator Casey Raymond and shot in Berlin, the video features our heroine performing an idiosyncratic freeform dance-cum-exercise routine. Of the video Cate says: "Wonderful is an awkward love song accompanied by an equally awkward video. I threw up my lunch." Fun times! 

Crab Day is Cate's most powerful and fully realized work yet. In honor of this new album, Cate... (read more)

LIGHTSTORM IN THE BOARDINGHOUSE!

posted February 26th, 2016

Don't call it a comeback---Lightstorm has been here for years! Husband and wife team, Johnima & Kalassu Wintergate have been recording music under various aliases since 1973 and now, thanks to Yoga Records and the release of Creation last week, they've discovered a newfound interest in their music! Now everyone can know, Johnima and Kalassu have more to offer the world than just incredibly righteous tunes; they're not the type to confine themselves to any singular genre, medium or even metaphysical reality!

THE MINSTREL WAY

posted February 25th, 2016

A road that never ends! This is the path chosen by many of our musician friends – because not only is the lot of the songwriter more than just making records, it actually begins and ends in playing for others in their witness! Before records, this was a social art, an entertainment-via-personal-audience, and nobody in our stable lives this ancient ideal more completely than Alasdair Roberts. Most nights, while you sit at home, he is somewhere in Scotland or maybe even down south in... (read more)

AMERICA! CALLAHAN'S SMALL PLANE IS CALIFORNIA BOUND

posted February 23rd, 2016

Bill Callahan fans and friends, stay a-Woke! It's not the Apocalypse- not yet! The Calla-man is BACK; flying high above the Dream River, wishing he were an Eagle, planning on making some pit stops along California's cruel "Winter Road" (it drops below 50 at night!) to bring the people what they've so hungered for for too long - live music from Bill Callahan! With three shows coming up this week, Bill's got almost as many gigs as he played... (read more)

THE RETURN OF THE QUEEN

posted February 22nd, 2016

Since November, her ladyship has been diving with increased range and radius - which is only natural, as the Divers campaign has to be a massive long-distance affair, spread over over a long period of time, to allow Joanna Newson's worldwide audience a chance to savor every intricate measure and pluck of the harp! Now, with Australia and Japan behind her, Joanna returns to the old world for dates beginning this week, in Brussels, with full band in tote. We're not gonna do too... (read more)
