SIX ORGANS ASCENT: NEXT STOP, PLANET AMERICA, WITH CONTROL

posted November 21st, 2012

The Six Organs of Admittance intergalactic tour-smission is coming in, as the beam glides from European lands back to the pilgrim shores of America! The full throttle, metal 6OOA-ship (yes, it's a fucking fire-breathing shreddy rock band from hell, not some acoustic dirge or arty-duo. Lazy journalists, take note!) is captained by one Ben Chasny, but his crew has changed for this mission- the band has expanded to a four-piece, including Casey from Major Stars on drums and John from Magic Markers on...

KNAPP "EVERMORE" AND THEN SOME!

posted November 20th, 2012

Whoa, have we reached the near-end of November already? Feels like just yesterday we released the debut album from Sophia Knapp, Into The Waves, to critical and metaphysical praise. But here we are, 9 months and 3 videos later, with yet another killer video from Sophia's magical LP, this time for the song, "Evermore."

A collaboration between Sophia Knapp and filmmaker/director Antonio Sobral on 8mm film during an art residency outside of Rio de Janeiro, "Evermore" was... (read more)

DEATH TO HOLLAND, BELGIUM

posted November 14th, 2012

Finally! Death is sweeping nations beyond the US of A. Now it's time for our lucky Dutch and Belgian brothers and sisters to catch Death, live and on screen! No, it ain't The Plague: this is Death, the realest of real original Detroit punks, whose albums ...For The Whole World To See and Spritual, Mental, Physical, were unearthed, well, for the whole world to spirtually, mentally and physically see and more importantly, HEAR in 2009 and 2011, respectively, to unanimous praise. The... (read more)

CHRISTMAS EVE CAN KILL YOU - JUST WATCH!

posted November 13th, 2012

In anticipation of their forthcoming holiday single, "Christmas Eve Can Kill You," old friends and collaborators Dawn McCarthy & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy wrap it up and present you with the tune as a viewable gift! From the Seeger Sisters to Mariah Carey, Elvis to Sinatra, from Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard; there is a remarkably strong tradition of fa-la-la-ing in popular music--to say nothing of the rich tradition of the holiday music video. Yet, there's no snow, no presents, no sacrificial goose or... (read more)

THE YEAR OF AZITA

posted November 8th, 2012

It hasn't felt like a Year since AZITA released Disturbing The Air, but shit - it's been, like, longer than that and the record's still on our turntable. Just in time for our needle change, AZITA's returned from where she goes when we can't see her, bearing drifts of music that shock us out of our reverie and into hers! Yes, Year is undoubtedly the most varied collection AZITA's yet carved her name into, sweetly played with flexion and understatement through and... (read more)

A VOTE FROM THE "STATE OF NON-RETURN"

posted November 6th, 2012

Feel that rumble? It quakes beneath the discourse of election day, waiting for its time to roll - a time of the dominion of no man. Feel it deep within? Yes: the vibrations of OM, poised to uncoil their spirit-roll on a long-awaited North American tour. It begins November 17th in Chicago, and the band are primed; calmly, and with great predetermination, they've delivered a massive, black and white video for "State Of Non-Return," offering a fly-on-the-wall glimpse of OM deep in...

LATE NIGHT TY-LEVISION TAKE OVER!

posted November 5th, 2012

Thought you'd seen it all? Put your eyes back in your head and thank god you did, sinner! Ty Segall's back on the small screen, shredding it live on massive-matrix network television, ascending "The Hill" to stand on the late night summit with Sir David Letterman, tonight on The Late Show! With Twins popping up everywhere, most notably in your local brick and mortar corner bodega bin, headshop and/or undergarment section of the department store, and what with it wearing out the...

IT'S TIME TO VOTE...FOR ALASDAIR ROBERTS AS SCOTSMAN OF THE YEAR

posted November 2nd, 2012

Aye, we cast our ballot this way every year, you know. It's not partisanship either, but a genuine hunch on our part. But this year, you and everyone else can punch Alasdair Roberts for Scots Singer of the year in the 2012 MG Alba Scottish Traditional Music Awards. Fuck a president - whether tradding the boards as a solo singer or and collabing with the likes of Jackie Oates, Karine Polwart and Mairi Morrison, or preseneting brand-spanking new materials like the stuff-of-epochs found...

HURRICANE SADIER'S SILENCIO TOUR STORMS ACROSS EUROPE; WATCH "LIGHTNING THUNDERBOLT"

posted October 31st, 2012

She's already asked us, "Find Me The Pulse Of The Universe," and provided us with "The Rule Of The Game." Now yet another entree to the Silencio speakeasy affirms itself on the horizon, just as apocalyptic weather changes lives across the globe. And like the weather, the video for "Lightning Thunderbolt" strikes once before your eyes and twice behind your mind. The final angle of a video triangle supporting Laetitia Sadier's "spry, melodic, and totally charming" (Uncut) new... (read more)
