OUTSTANDING AUDIO-VISUAL NOISE EMANATES FROM THE SILENCE!

posted December 9th, 2015

The Silence is a powerful force - if try to ignore it, you will fail! Much like a mighty gust of wind or the thunderous crackle of a bubbling volcanic eruption that has finally boiled over, The Silence percolate over time only to unleash sounds that furiously swallow you from wherever you are at any given moment. It's manifested once already with the Kazuo Ogino's video for "Little Red Record Company," but the latest case in point is The Silence's sprawling three part epic,... (read more)

JO JO JO! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

posted December 8th, 2015

With greater velocity than a meteorite-straddlin' Kris Kringle, Joanna Newsom keeps dropping gifts on a grateful world-pop! While she's in the midst of her first USA tour in four years, more Newsom tour dates have blossomed forth from Mother Earth's nurturing bosom. They land our lady right back where the Divers campaign began - in Europe! It's all part of the international Divers experience, people. Following the years-long buildup to the album release, we've felt your collective sigh of relief and squeal of enjoyment -... (read more)

BASK IN THE WARM SUN AND THE CATALINA BREEZE

posted December 7th, 2015

Brrr! When the hell did it get so cold?! This wintery weather has given us the urge to put on our PJs as soon as the sun goes down... at 4PM. How dreary! It doesn't have to be that way, though. Thanks to the Blue Jean Committee, the party has just begun and the lido shuffle is lasting all the way until the end of the year! The now legendary Gene Allen and Clark Honus were once just two working class guys with a... (read more)

Six Organs of Admittance Provide Post-Thanksgiving Relief with In-Store Performances and Hexadic Talks!

posted November 24th, 2015

Spirits rejoice! Mathletes too! The release of Six Organs of Admittance's much-speculated-upon sequel to Hexadic, aptly entitled Hexadic II, has FINALLY arrived a full NINE months after the monolithic original hit down, and in celebration of that achievement, Mr. Six Organs himself, Ben Chasny, has some last minute tricks up his sleeve! Thanksgiving kinda sucks, right?  First there's the travel hell, from which there is no escape. Upon arriving "home," you devour your weight in traditional family holiday fare, then attempt...

VETERANS OF DISORDER

Times are tough, they say! So they are – and so have they always been! But not for us. In a world poleaxed by cultural divides, class struggles, partisan opinions, the poverty gap, mind-bogglingly violent expressions and (continued) governmental indifference to actual change, we utilize the systems at hand to deal in the propagation of….music! Yeah, and even though there are at least a dozen ways to make it divisive right off the bat (et tu, Spotify?),... (read more)

RANGDA REVEAL THE HERETIC'S BARGAIN!

posted November 19th, 2015

Rangda! They planted a False Flag in the blood-soaked turf of the contemporary rock-politik. They were Formerly Extinct before you ever even THOUGHT about giving it up for good! Now, five years since ascending to collective Rangdadom, the flower-plower trio are back in your phase! This time around, Rangda strikes The Heretic's Bargain for you - but have a care, foolish listener; not only is it an offer you can't refuse, this here's a deal you can't repeal!

Ever since the... (read more)

WAND OF THE LOST (Tour Report, Pt 4)

posted November 18th, 2015

REPORT 4:
Missoula, 11/3. Real Lounge.

Saw a massive, beautiful Great Dane with no collar at a gas stop in east Washington. He boofed and woo-woo'd at us. The gas attendant said that he had an owner, and treated us like we all needed to "relax" and stop trying to control "everything." Whatever. Best part of the dog? It's the dog.  

S-W?? We are still unsure.

Cory fell deep into mouth-open sleep as we drove... (read more)
