WHISPERS WITHIN THE WALLS OF A NEW VIDEO FROM MEG BAIRD

posted July 14th, 2015

Meg Baird is not one to sit and bask in any glory. Instead, she tirelessly collaborates and constructs new material for the world to enjoy on a regular basis. Don't Weigh Down The Light is her latest (and greatest!) solo offering to date amongst a decade of sure-as-shit can't miss recordings, done both under her own name and with her previous outfit, Espers. So it should come as no surprise that once again, Meg's ahead of the curve with a NEW version of... (read more)

ALL ABOARD....THE PEACE(RS) TRAIN!

posted July 10th, 2015

PEACERS is here! The new band of San Fran's chronic son Mike Donovan (Big Techno Werewolves, The Ropers, Yikes and really, Sic Alps, man!), already dropped a killer track to let us know they're coming, - but before the album actually HITS, dig a video too! From the psyche-mind of director Jim Drain comes a kaleidoscopic vision set to the tune of PEACERS' candy-coated rock and roller, "Laze It"! A fractured surf mini, the vid pictures all the thrills and chills of the... (read more)

NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED FROM FLYING SAUCER ATTACK

posted July 9th, 2015

Deep within time and space lie moments that confound our basic understanding of all things that move forward in a linear motion. Something thought lost forever re-enters your life. How do you respond? How do you even begin to negotiate the vortex of mixed emotions whipped up by such a reappearance? The world shifts sideways. Logic is confounded. The uncanny takes a hold.

Flying Saucer Attack are case in point, confounding this very logic and spiraling the most hardened listener into an emotional awakening bordering... (read more)

WAND IT UP! 1000 DAYS TO COME

posted July 8th, 2015

New Wand aloft! So how to explain....Wand manufacture a little life within an elaborate craftwork of sound amongst the endless social contrivances of popular music - that almost says it?

Recorded in their hometown of Los Angeles and San Francisco, 1000 Days finds Wand searching in corners and finding extra texture via... (read more)

WIND YOUR CLOCKS FOR MIDNIGHT

posted July 2nd, 2015

What happens when a group of bored teenagers, raised on the promises of Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Deep Purple, get together and kick out the motherfucking jams? Motherfucking Midnight! Suburban Chicago in the 1970s was ripe with young heshers, yet the godz aligned four very specific young men at the witching hour- Dave Hill (vox, keys), Scott Marquart (drums), Frank Anastos (guitar, vox), and John Falstrom (bass)- with a deep appreciation for hard rock who were truly ready to let it all hang...

FAUN FABLES TRAVERSE THE ROAD, TRANSMIT NEW VIDEO

posted June 30th, 2015

Just around that curve in the gravel road, beyond the cluster of heavy plum trees and inside the chicken coop-turned-cottage, there's a lot of commotion going on:  the whirring of a sewing machine, the swish of a broom, the patterns of drums and tambourines, the shouts of calls and responses, the shrill of flute song, the squeals of girl children dancing and fighting... yes, the FAUN FABLES family is getting ready to head out for the road.

Song tellers Dawn McCarthy and Nils Frykdahl... (read more)

BONNY HOPS AGAIN

posted June 24th, 2015

Hurk! What larks beneath this surface or beyond that corner? It’s Wolfroy himself, big ol' Bonny Billy, set to satiate our needing minds and souls with a a howl and a song holler from deep within! Over the ridge of the far valleys, he's heard our hungry cry: we want the Bonnie 'Prince' Billy word and we want it.....now? Now! After spending much of last year performing solo, lone-wolf-style, our Bonny no longer walks that solitudinal road, nope! In aught-fifteen, he's back for dates... (read more)
