THE SCENT OF BONNY

posted November 30th, 2012

Got a skin-sniff'n smell fetish? Are you like us, spending random evenings wishing to be surrounded by warm, dank body oders in the dirty clothes hamper at Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's house? You know what he sounds like, you know what he looks like, the next logical step is to find out what he smells like, right? Right, well, now you can, and even enjoy the pleasure of smelling like Bonnie yourself, any place you want - in the comfort of your own home, or,... (read more)

WHAT, WEAR? ACCELERATOR!

posted November 29th, 2012

We insist, actually. America's sons and daughters, come get Trux'd upon, fresh off the re-release of 1998's party countdown to 2012, Accelerator. The music fits like a glove, but that's on the inside - what you gonna put on your icean humanoid-bod? How about the fresh hot tee with a vintage cree, the authentic article (of clothing), the original Accelerator T-shirt, risen from the Royal Trux tomb. Slip into it now, just as you've begun to wear out your LP copy of... (read more)

SCOUT'S OUT, VID'S ID! WE HAB A CODE...

posted November 28th, 2012

Scout Niblett is BACK, baby! And it's about TIME! She's got a new 7" that features steppin' out like you might never've even THOUGHT Scout Niblett was inclined towards and it's IN STORES NOW. Called "No More Nasty Scubbs", this record plays suspiciously like the record of a woman whose been burned at the hands of a man - but that can't be true! Not our Scout? Anyway, she plays the scorned love to the hilt, with help from source material from Janet... (read more)

SIX ORGANS ASCENT: NEXT STOP, PLANET AMERICA, WITH CONTROL

posted November 21st, 2012

The Six Organs of Admittance intergalactic tour-smission is coming in, as the beam glides from European lands back to the pilgrim shores of America! The full throttle, metal 6OOA-ship (yes, it's a fucking fire-breathing shreddy rock band from hell, not some acoustic dirge or arty-duo. Lazy journalists, take note!) is captained by one Ben Chasny, but his crew has changed for this mission- the band has expanded to a four-piece, including Casey from Major Stars on drums and John from Magic Markers on...

KNAPP "EVERMORE" AND THEN SOME!

posted November 20th, 2012

Whoa, have we reached the near-end of November already? Feels like just yesterday we released the debut album from Sophia Knapp, Into The Waves, to critical and metaphysical praise. But here we are, 9 months and 3 videos later, with yet another killer video from Sophia's magical LP, this time for the song, "Evermore."

A collaboration between Sophia Knapp and filmmaker/director Antonio Sobral on 8mm film during an art residency outside of Rio de Janeiro, "Evermore" was... (read more)

DEATH TO HOLLAND, BELGIUM

posted November 14th, 2012

Finally! Death is sweeping nations beyond the US of A. Now it's time for our lucky Dutch and Belgian brothers and sisters to catch Death, live and on screen! No, it ain't The Plague: this is Death, the realest of real original Detroit punks, whose albums ...For The Whole World To See and Spritual, Mental, Physical, were unearthed, well, for the whole world to spirtually, mentally and physically see and more importantly, HEAR in 2009 and 2011, respectively, to unanimous praise. The... (read more)

CHRISTMAS EVE CAN KILL YOU - JUST WATCH!

posted November 13th, 2012

In anticipation of their forthcoming holiday single, "Christmas Eve Can Kill You," old friends and collaborators Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy wrap it up and present you with the tune as a viewable gift! From the Seeger Sisters to Mariah Carey, Elvis to Sinatra, from Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard; there is a remarkably strong tradition of fa-la-la-ing in popular music--to say nothing of the rich tradition of the holiday music video. Yet, there's no snow, no presents, no sacrificial goose or... (read more)

THE YEAR OF AZITA

posted November 8th, 2012

It hasn't felt like a Year since AZITA released Disturbing The Air, but shit - it's been, like, longer than that and the record's still on our turntable. Just in time for our needle change, AZITA's returned from where she goes when we can't see her, bearing drifts of music that shock us out of our reverie and into hers! Yes, Year is undoubtedly the most varied collection AZITA's yet carved her name into, sweetly played with flexion and understatement through and... (read more)

A VOTE FROM THE "STATE OF NON-RETURN"

posted November 6th, 2012

Feel that rumble? It quakes beneath the discourse of election day, waiting for its time to roll - a time of the dominion of no man. Feel it deep within? Yes: the vibrations of OM, poised to uncoil their spirit-roll on a long-awaited North American tour. It begins November 17th in Chicago, and the band are primed; calmly, and with great predetermination, they've delivered a massive, black and white video for "State Of Non-Return," offering a fly-on-the-wall glimpse of OM deep in...
