The countdown until the demise of the world has already begun, but who says we can't get a little celebratin' in before them ol' end times?

HAVE YOU BEEN CLUED IN?

posted December 7th, 2016

The teen pop-pusher of the century, Tim Presley, keeps on pushing with a bouncy new video for "Clue!" September saw the release of Tim's first solo effort under his given name, and with Cate Le Bon on production duty, The WiNK drew eyes and ears to its solid, metallic brilliance the world over!

The unbreakable musical tension sharpens and slacks when coupled with the imagery provided by director Matt Grote. Shot entirely in black and white, Tim freely sways and struts... (read more)

MEG BAIRD HITS THE HIGHWAY

posted December 6th, 2016

Dreamers, freaks and weirdos alike- important news is afoot! San Francisco's (by the way of Philadelphia) Meg Baird is embarking on a solo tour early next year! Alive with mystery and color, her latest album Don't Weigh Down the Light is lyrical and precise, demonstrating her propulsive fingerstyle guitar work and a voice that moves from soaring and tender to soothing and spellbinding... sometimes within a single song!

This is Meg's first proper tour since the release of Don't Weigh Down the... (read more)

SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE IS SCORCHING INTO A NEW DAWN

posted December 5th, 2016

In preparing for the first album of non-HexadicSix Organs of Admittance music since 2012's Ascent, Ben Chasny had a think about what he'd be saying in his own tongue for the first time in a half-decade. As ever, a head-full of ideas were driving him to think and speak music as a spirituality superimposed onto a reality, with the ghosts of both whispering at each other. In the end, what sits in our listening ears is the sound of communion. Burning the Threshold... (read more)

MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW

Don’t LOOK at the future, just DEAL WITH IT! That’s how about half of us (and not necessarily the better half) are feeling these days, and sure, we’re still making plans and pre-morteming the potential pitfalls and summoning that former feeling called ‘hope’ - but you gotta admit: if you’re alive today (and you’re reading this! – socio-demographically aware ed.), you’re taking a certain amount on faith. Stone-cold, ice-cold faith. And the rest you’re not looking... (read more)

THE UNBORN CAPITALIST INNERVATES- CORY HANSON ON TOUR!

posted November 30th, 2016

The present climate calls for a revolution. Life calls for music, for lyric, and if you can somehow handle them without needing to possess them, they echo back again as life, vital in its total excess. Cory Hanson's debut solo album, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo emerges from a panic, a car wreck, shivering with sudden liquefaction. But the images are plain, arrayed in light. This illumination of organized understanding provides alacrity in these dark times, even just for a half hour of recorded music.

TWELVE MORE INCHES FROM CATE LE BON

posted November 21st, 2016

Bonus! With the new Cate Le Bon not long gone, here's four candles not placed on the original Crab Day cake for you to hear as the titular holiday comes round once again.

Cate writes: "Rock Pool" is the killed darlings from the Crab Day sessions brought back to life on a classic 2-2 formation. Written under the same banner of the impossibly absurd and emerging to unimaginable bedlam."

Produced by Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, and featuring musicians H. Hawkline,... (read more)
