DISC(CON)CUSSIONS

KA BAIRD PYCNICS IN EUROPE

posted January 24th, 2018

Last fall's nuanced and glorious Sapropelic Pycnic was one of 2017's greatest recorded statements! Coming from Ka Baird, she of Spires That In The Sunset Rise, it was expected to be OUT, for sure - but we didn't realize just how deeply it would draw from the primordial ooze and raise high a sacrifice to the immemorial concept of the sacred. And that's just how it sounds on LP! Live, Ka Baird is simply mesmerizing - a whirlwind of voice, electronics, flute and loops... (read more)

BLOWING CIRCUITS WORLDWIDE

posted January 24th, 2018

Seeing Circuit des Yeux perform is believing! While Reaching For Indigo is as formidable an LP as you'll hear anytime soon, seeing the songs played live directs laser beams straight to your brain's vibrating core. With a backing band full of talented musicians (Cooper Crain, Tyler Damon and Andrew Scott Young) along for the ride, Haley Fohr's CdY are currently on the road showcasing the album in a light more transcendent than even repeated listenings on your turntable can offer. The hot tip we're... (read more)

POKE YOUR FOOD WITH A STICK

posted January 23rd, 2018

Poke it with a Stick -- the only record by Louisville legends Your Food -- is a sui generis gem of the American underground, now faithfully reissued for the first time by Drag City. Recorded in 1983 by four scarecrows from Kentucky subsisting largely on cheap beer and baked beans, the album is a burbling burgoo of hypnotic rhythm, uncoiling tension, and sharp invective -- a proud bastard of post-punk royalty.

In the fall of 1981, the residents of 1069, Louisville's original punk... (read more)

WANDERING HOW TO GET TO THE SHOW?

posted January 19th, 2018

With Plum hanging like a sun above the western horizon, Wand finally embark on the official Plum European tour next week, heading east and east and east before they finally arrive without not travelling in merry old Brighton, the big black Smoke of London, the streets of Bristol and ever so much more beyond! Now is the time for all the top-hatted Wandheads (though we prefer Wanderers) of all colors and in all corners to rally (or at the very least, just congregate) in the... (read more)

SCENES FROM A BROOKLYN WATERPARK

posted January 17th, 2018

Like a flash of grease in the proverbial pan, Royal Trux are back in New York with two nights at Market Hotel this weekend! Deconstructing and mutating Rock n Roll comprise the ever-present pulse through Jennifer and Neil’s musical veins, and the last year-plus-worth of live shows and a new "LIVE" record, Platinum Tips and Ice Cream, proves that nothing's changed in the slightest, nor will it change any time soon!

Beyond the genre-setting and –defying music and the genius of... (read more)
