NO BIG TROUBLE GETTING BILL CALLAHAN TO CHINA... AND BEYOND, SAY!

posted November 13th, 2014

That Callahan man is always moving - sometimes in darkness, while we sleep, unnoticed - sometimes to and fro countries near and far... but all the way out to the Far East? Now that may just be a first! But how far is too far, really, when you're Bill Callahan? Whereever Bill Callahan surfaces, it's always news with a captial freakin' N! As in Not Nippon - not this time anyway! This set of sets just happens to be the type of Shanghai surprise... (read more)

BONNIE AND TUSKS AND HOOVES, OH MY! CHECK THE VID FOR "NEW BLACK RICH (TUSKS)"!

posted November 12th, 2014

The newest single from Singer's Grave A Sea of Tongues is molten, set to burn like a classic torch song should-- in your ears and forever! On "New Black Rich (Tusks)," Bonnie 'Prince' Billy collaborated with longtime songwriting partner Bryan Rich to create the ardent ballad.  The mood of "New Black Rich (Tusks)" is circumspect at best compared to first single "Quail and Dumplings." Where "Quail" anticipated bright future, which salved for the hardness of the present times, the "New Black... (read more)

SIR RICHARD BISHOP IS BACK, WITH A NEW ALBUM--AND GUITAR--TO PROVE IT!

posted November 10th, 2014

Hear ye, hear ye! Sir Richard Bishop's Tangier Sessions will be released on Febuary 17th! Tangier Sessions tells the oft-told tale: while traveling abroad, nobleman meets guitar. Guitar is too expensive for nobleman and, outraged, he departs. Nobleman quietly returns several days later for guitar but still can't bring himself to pay the price. Yet nobleman can't get guitar out of mind - so nobleman buys guitar, travels the world with it, and makes an album while in Tangier!

On the lookout... (read more)

posted November 5th, 2014

Announcing Jessica Pratt's new album and Drag City debut, On Your Own Love Again, last week felt really fucking good! Today that weird giddy feeling returns as we're set to reveal the album's first single, "Back, Baby," to eager ears worldwide!

We all want the world to be beautiful. We want scribes and songbirds to tell us so—and sometimes they do and then it is. They point their pens and focus their lens where they will and surprise us... (read more)

PUT YOUR $INGLE$ DOWN A SECOND TIME FOR TY SEGALL

posted November 4th, 2014

You thought Manipulator was the money album of the year? Think...AGAIN! 2014 ain’t done yet, and $ingle$ 2 is here. And this time, it’s for the money. Two times! $ingle$ 2 sweeps out the ashes of the breakneck days (and nights!!!!) of 2011–2013, and burns down the house all over again in the process.

$ingle$ 2 slinks low and flat-out sprints behind the scenes of the Goodbye BreadTwinsSleeper trilogy (no it isn’t!), collecting all the now-out-of-print sides that totally... (read more)

6OOA NEWS BULLETIN! SIX ORGANS TO RELEASE HEXADIC

posted November 4th, 2014

Ben Chasny's restless intellect has regularly guided the progress of his creation. A lyrical mastery of acoustic finger-picking would be enough to build a body of work for most musicians; this is just the stepping-off point for Ben. From the earliest days of private-press psych home recordings, Six Organs of Admittance has sought out alternative spaces in which to make music and challenge audiences to keep up with his rapid advances into new terrain. Over the last two years, Ben assembled a comprehensive... (read more)

posted November 3rd, 2014

Who says music can't tear down a wall or two, like it does in "Release From The Centre of Your Heart?" Certainly not Laetitia, who brings her guitar, her band, and her unrivaled voice and presence to stages all across Europe next month. Ah, the music stage... (read more)

THEY HAD THE WHOLE EARTH IN THEIR HANDS

posted October 31st, 2014

The early 1970s was a good time to be The Source Family. They were all together in one big house in LA, they had their restaurant, and best of all they had their Father! But they also had a comet to inspire them and the ever-expanding universe of the spirit to meditate upon and be one with. This was, like, THE TIME for gettting together in a  big group and doing such meditations - the Source Family were grooving on a vibrational plane... (read more)
