KORINE-ING TOWARDS THE SPRING BREAKING POINT

posted March 18th, 2013

Face it, for all the green types out there obsessed with minimizing their carbon footies, there's at least two more born every minute whose interests lie with collecting as much carbon as possible! We like these people, because they remind us of us, and that's always a good experience. In addition to collecting paper and plastic and other entertaining stuff that's guaranteed to clog the planet's drains in the end (but in the meantime, is awesomely enjoyable, and isn't going anywhere near the drain anytime...

WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE TO BE RICH

posted March 15th, 2013

April showers peel back the dirt from our greenish earth, often revealing previously hidden roots 'n' gems either lost for a time or in some cases never rightly appreciated in the first place. This April, that gem comes to from the mysterious urban graveland we call, Detroit and one of the minds drifting free there sometime in the indeterminate past. Back when the Motown scene was uprooting, and the city's Vietnam protesters were looting, a young Rich Ristagno went from jamming in the garage with... (read more)

DIVE INTO THE STREAM WITH ENSEMBLE PEARL

posted March 14th, 2013

Hey there and hello - pleased to stream you! Don't be alarmed should you feel the earth shaking, we feel it, too! And for once it isn't simply due to the fact we've gone off our meds - which, by the way, is everybody else's fault and not ours. Nope; instead, all this rumble comes from the freely streaming debut album from Ensemble Pearl! Crazy shit, that - we're letting folks in on the listening game a little early for once, just to see...

CALLAHAN COMING TO TOWN

posted March 13th, 2013

The man that brought you the Apocalypse now brings you the first rays of the sweet sunshiny new spring -- yes, you read the subject line of this email correctly -- YOUR (anti)HERO, Bill Callahan, is coming soon to a venue near you! How near is up for you to determine; we're simply bearing fruits, not planting fruity trees in your own personal back yard! That would be kind of trespass-y, and when it comes to misdemeanors we're more about being verbally assaultative than... (read more)

RETROGRADING PURLING HISS VIDEO AND TOUR!

posted March 8th, 2013

We warned you a coupla weeks ago, "Mercury Retrograde" is now upon us. When Purling Hiss first premiered their burning lead single, the astrological retrograde hadn't yet begun; but now---- well, shit-- it's in FULL JACK SWING! Lucky for everyone, the mercurial madness of the retrograde - the lack of continuity, the fruitless quality of communications, the endless breakdowns on mechanical, emotional and logistical fronts - will be over soon, like March 17th to be exact (and super-hopeful!). In the meantime, the Hiss... (read more)

COMMERCIAL... FREE... WHAT THE BROTHERS SANG

posted March 5th, 2013

Hey you little West Coasting, graveyard shiftless, couch-potatoes you (tokers and strokers, line up)! We know you saw those freaky little What The Brothers Sang adverts on cable television last week, all up in the Comedy Central, Food Network, Oprah Network ('cept in Spokane- racists!), History Channel and more. Intriguing, weren't they? Indeed, they're indicative of the latest release from Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, a batch of covers from the songbook of a coupla bros named Everly. As sweet and subliminal... (read more)

SWEET DC TEES COME IN TWOS FOR YOUSE

posted March 4th, 2013

Couple years back, when a repress of the Drag City "Pus Head Dylan" t-shirt was made, we frantically posted regarding the strange disappearance of one red-headed flapper brave enough to don the DC T, issuing the following statement:

Warning: the Drag City T-shirt is now back in print, but don't try to get through customs wearing one - they're just too sick! We tried to warn this unlucky fellow, and look where he is now. Actually, do you know where he is? This photo was... (read more)

"ADDIS" DUBPLATE DUBS YOUR PLEASURE

posted March 1st, 2013

OM just wrapped up another leg of touring, playing sold out shows everywhere along the western coast of North America. Sold out everywhere but Salt Lake City, that is... Lake effect? Salt poisoning? City mice? Who knows, maybe they're only into country-ass jazz.... Anywhat, the Advaitic journey simply continues: as sub-sonic hypnotics on repeat, double versions of "Addis" made dub by the infamous British duo known simply as Alpha & Omega. The "Addis" Dubplate bounces and sizzles, mantra-like, in ways you'd expect an OM... (read more)

WHEN DO YOU "SATURDAY?"

posted February 28th, 2013

Aw, what day is it? Wednesday, Thursday maybe? F-dat noize. All we wanna see is some "Saturday," prowling around Darby Crash-like mumbling, "Gimmie gimme this, gimmie gimme that." But obvs some kinda jacked-ghostly spirit Darby, wandering into the void of some Baltimore-ian shit-house of a party, looking for a skin to inhabit, only to get curb-stomped (spirit-style) by some dude named Buck. Buck's watching a band play and having the 'gasm of his life while doing it; he ain't got time to deal... (read more)

IT'S UP TO SCOUT NIBLETT

posted February 26th, 2013

Stripped of partnerships both musical and personal, self-reliance has become more than survival technique for Scout Niblett. Arming herself with the old Rollins'-ism, "And at the end of the day, all you have left if yourself and your mind," and therefore encouraged to see her own strengths and utilize them, Scout ready to drop a storming new record, It's Up To Emma, her first long-jammer in 3 years. It's Up To Emma illuminates friction between partners, generates gradual tension, and explodes from... (read more)
