JOIN CORY HANSON IN THE GARDEN OF DELIGHT

posted March 30th, 2017

The exploratory transition into solo song-scribe found on Cory Hanson's The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo put newly formed strengths as a songwriter and lyricist on display with palpable acuity. After its release at the end of 2016 and the fantastic February tour of the Pacific Northwest that followed, it's about time we approach The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo from a new angle, and through a lens: yes, Cory has a fresh music video ripe for consumption! "Garden of Delight" was shot earlier this year,... (read more)

posted March 28th, 2017

Attention! The Peacers now present: Introducing the Crimsmen! Escalating from a disembodied voice to slowly mounting full-band hypnosis, this is a trip into the goldenrod days of fandom, a dimension where a t-shirt could change your life. Since their first LP in the summer 2015, The Peacers have been gigging in SF and around, collecting tunes for this divinely awaited moment: Introducing the Crimsmen. Lurching back into life, with buzz and hum alight and colors flashing, is the name, but the instigators of... (read more)

posted March 23rd, 2017

Fresh from conquering the West Coast, Six Organs of Admittance are about to embark on a massive tour of the middle and Eastern USA! In trio format with Elisa Ambrogio and Donovan Quinn (killer band alert!) flanking, Ben Chasny will surely have some tricks up his wizard sleeves beyond the normal six string madness that accompanies each and every Six Organs show. Get that finger out of your nose and make sure you get there, chappy, or forever miss out on a potentially life-affirming experience!

LAETITIA EMERGES WITH A GALACTIC NEW VIDEO, MORE TOUR DATES

posted March 22nd, 2017

As an artist, Laetitia Sadier is ever evolving, inspired by a mind's-eye envisaging of geometric forms and their possible permutations. Her new record, Find Me Finding You, recorded with the Source Ensemble of Nina Savary, Xavi Muñoz and Emmanuel Mario, is an inspired, collaborative effort full of exciting, new dynamics interspersed with sounds that Sadier (and 'Lab) Heads will find comfortingly familiar! With a massive European tour coming up and a few festival appearances in the U.S., not to mention the release... (read more)

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!

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)
