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)

Ty Segall is Freedom's Goblin!

NPR Music's First Listen is Freedom's Goblin! It delivers the music free to us for listening without constraint and/or commitment. And you too are Freedom's Goblin: free to listen (or not) to whatever you want, free to follow your mind to the brink of whatever mortal... (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)

HISSING ON A PARK BENCH

posted January 11th, 2018

Take off yer coat, there's a warm breeze headed this way! By which we mean BREEZE, Purling Hiss' new EP available exclusively on Bandcamp. As ever, Hissmanager Mike Polizze bends his sunshine melodies through a hazy delivery cut through with his sharp and slouching riffs - but Breeze is unlike last year's High Bias, which gleamed with the kind of studio finish that made Water On Mars so incandescent. Here, Purling Hiss pours the kind of homegrown brew that made... (read more)

WHAT NEWS!? ALASDAIR ROBERTS' NEW ALBUM, THAT'S WHAT!

posted January 10th, 2018

For his twelfth solo album, What News, and his fourth album focused exclusively on the performance of traditional songs, Alasdair Roberts has chosen a typically unusual and eclectic pair of collaborators: Amble Skuse and David McGuinness.

On past albums No Earthly Man and Too Long In this Condition, Alasdair relied on his deep connection with the material to anchor exploratory arrangements that would locate the hundreds-years-old songs in a contemporary milieu. For What News, Alasdair had a desire to... (read more)

THE BAJAS AND WINDING ROAD

posted January 9th, 2018

Bitchin Bajas are ready for launch, sir! With organs, synths, woodwind instruments and good vibes in tow (alongside the Bajas secret alter egos Cooper Crain, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye), Los Bajas continue to bring a gentle flow wherever they go, and they're prepared to push open new sonic spaces with another leg of US tour dates, this time designed to bring inner warmth (and light, of course) to the sub-freezing midwestern plains. And what better way to warm the pipes than a... (read more)

TY SEGALL TACKLED THE OPPOSITION

posted January 8th, 2018

For all of us taking on the world's events in our own ways, filtering the news with anxiety and paranoia, who wouldn't wanna see Ty Segall, guitar in hand, go toe-to-toe with a reprehensible adversary? Well, it happened last night, as Ty turned up as the first ever musical guest on Comedy Central's The Opposition with Jordan Klepper! There was music (Ty performing "My Lady's On Fire" acoustic!) and more - Ty's got a special connection to the show since... (read more)
