ROYAL TRUX SCOOP UP SOME FRESH PLATINUM TIPS AND ICE CREAM

posted March 16th, 2017

Platinum Tips and Ice Cream (scenes from the water park) is new from Royal Trux. The songs were written over a span of time as wide as eagle's wings - but the recordings are new, live, unrehearsed and were presented in real time to a few thousand people in California and NYC. Performance art? Yes! But only because, unlike so many other aural "content providers," Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema are true artists writing their own futures into the present. This was, and will... (read more)

HAMBURGER IN THE HEARTLAND

posted March 15th, 2017

Ladies and germs; a sweat-stained, celebrity-obcessed, phlegm-spewing representative of world class entertainment is our midst! And, no, we're not talking about our commander-in-chief - it's just Neeeeeiiiillll Hammmmmburgerrrr! For a (mercifully) brief stint, the world's hardest working man in showbiz will be making stops in big name cities such as LaCrosse, Wisconsin and Des Moine, IA in April! Those little red dots are the backbone of this country, folks. Once he gets run out of those towns, he'll drift up to  the northwest to... (read more)

Regarding the feverish splash of Ty Segall's paintings - a raw blurting of acrylics in the service of static figure work and portraiture - it is hard not to feel the urge to kick and scream. This is what the paintings want of you, to regard life... (read more)

HEAR YE! BONNIE GOES HAGGARD ON NEW LP!

posted March 8th, 2017

With Best Troubador, Bonnie 'Prince Billy pays homage to a long-time and forever hero, the late Merle Haggard. A singer who, some 25 years previously, first performed in public by playing a Merle Haggard song, Bonny has often cited Merle's work in performance, on records and in conversation with anyone who was around, even talking to Merle himself for Filter magazine (RIP) in 2009.

Merle's body of work was considered by Bonny for a record such as this for some... (read more)

THE TOWN AND THE CITY

Welcome to hard times! Everywhere you go, people gots they hand out - "hey brother, you got a world to spare?" We know it! It's enough to make you believe in space travel and the potentially game-changing relief that might lie only 40 light-years away! But it's a big, bad world that's waxing and waning out there, and we've found that regardless of federally-instituted regulations (or a lack thereof) life flows on within us and... (read more)

RISE UP NOW WITH SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE

posted March 2nd, 2017

On the cusp of two full decades of music-making, Six Organs of Admittance has ridden winds and waves spanning passion and logic and myth. The brand-new full length LP, Burning the Threshold, exudes a warmth not always found in Ben Chasny's music - but that's how life works, taking us up and down over time. Ben's records have charted that passage, making his arrival at this seemingly sweet moment a special pleasure, and as always, a magic and musical one as well. It is... (read more)

TRUX'N DOWN SOUTH AND ACROSS THE OCEAN!

posted February 23rd, 2017

As Piero Scaruffi puts it, "Royal Trux established themselves during the 90's as one of the greatest rock groups of all time. Not only did they give us the masterpiece of extraordinary scope Twin Infinitives (one of the albums that required decades to be completely assimilated) but they also reinvented the concept of a rock group, a concept that was born with the Rolling Stones (a group that had inspired the duo but just as importantly provided them with a definitive example on which to...
