THE FAUN OF THE OPERA

posted January 9th, 2012

Dawn McCarthy heads the Faun Fables stable, and therefore is clearly no stranger to the stage. Typical Faun Fables performances are often quite theatrical, and of course, their Transit Rider album was itself a musical that, when toured, was performed theatrically. We're psyched to see Dawn dust off her acting hat once again, this time in The Crucible's production of MACHINE: A World Premiere Fire Opera. Dawn plays a lead as Brigid in the production, based on a sci-fi short by Derek J.... (read more)

DIRTY THREE ARE COMING

posted January 6th, 2012

It's been a wicked dry spell of seven years since the filthy unit of Mick Turner, Jim White, and Warren Ellis graced the world with a full-length of any kind. Sure, they've had their hands in many different pies in between then and now, as men are wont to eat fruit from different trees like the evolved chimps they are, but nothing comes close to what occurs when The Dirty Three lock themselves in a room with the tape rolling to milk whatever...

posted January 5th, 2012

AZITA moved some waves in 2011 for GODdamn sure - releasing Disturbing The Air, an LPs-worth of piano and voice composition-waves; playing dates in the US o' A and over the waves into Europe, as well as landing in top ten spots in waves all across the planet - and we're expecting even more of her in 2012! Why shouldn't we? Her muse is clearly peaking and her key-playing and vocal chording is more precise and powerful than ever. AZITA never misses an opportunity... (read more)

HOWLING HEX A/V CLUB

posted January 3rd, 2012

Achtung baby humans and adult humans alike! All tableau vivant still-lifers have been reassigned to re-education at Camp David. Please vacate space and enter the multiverse to visi-grab the new The Howling Hex moving picture music video, available for viewing mandatory ahora. You will learn how to "read" the media, represented in trite-but-ubiquitous tabloid form (a sample prototype that every American can understand), in order to scan coded messages from God and absorb vibrational knowledge on a variety of histostorio-cultural fronts, including tidbits on JonBenet,...

WOLFROY DONE GONE TO (TURKEY) TOWN

posted January 3rd, 2012

When we first listened to the newest record from Bonnie Prince Billy, we didn’t know the title of the album, but we heard a distinct voice stalking the players, making his violent presence known. And it’s not unusual for a Bonny record to channel a muse or, in the case of Wolfroy Goes to Town, create a character to carry the weight, but we never expected Wolfroy to be an actual entity! We begged the 'Prince' to let us see this roaming conspirator... (read more)
