CELESTIAL SATELLITE

posted October 18th, 2021

Come one, come all for another exclusive look at The Intimate Landscape! For this third and final pre-release single before its November 5th release, Ben Chasny has chosen to shine a bright, "Second Moon" down upon us, correctly predicting we're ready for lunar illumination while keeping both feet on terra firma. Go on, get blissed while woodsy guitar notes pull you deeply inward to the core - those rusty accoustics are balanced by gauzy synth notes sure to evoke a sense of yearning and zen-like...

BAJAS TRAVEL THE SPACEWAYS WITH SWITCHED ON RA

posted October 14th, 2021

It’s almost four years since their last opus — two years since the most-recent run of live shows! Now, Bitchin Bajas return (from whatever kind of rare ether they occupy when they’re at home), bearing the riches of the whole cosmos in their hands. And straight OG as well — on cassette only!

Switched On Ra is the outcome of a typical Bajas exercise: pouring some out for the pioneers that came before. Aka, a deep delve into the song-book of one of... (read more)

TANKERS FOR THE MEMORIES, JOEL VANDROOGENBROECK

posted October 6th, 2021

Joel Vandroogenbroeck's uniquely trippy catalog of music vignettes are long overdue for their day in the library music sun. His style, fusing inspirations from jazz, traditional music of the world and the psychedelic rock experience, gave Joel a unique sound in a world of unusual sounds. Far View collects exotic drifts of library music from Joel's Coloursound releases of the 1980s, transmitting his singular vision of so called 'stock' music while also evolving the heavy spiritual vibes of his incendiary work in the 70s with...

FIND YOUR "SWEETSPOT"

posted September 29th, 2021

With the release date for Mess Esque's Drag City debut album nearing, Mick and Helen have dropped a new video for their latest single "Sweetspot"!
The video, directed by Charlie Hillhouse, is equally hypnotizing with a dreamlike quality that gently rouses the viewer from induced inertia only to be thrust further down the rabbit hole. A story told in multiple parts, it demands your divided attention. Helen's words on the song:

"The song was about artists wanting to be in flow at first. The Sweetspot. I started... (read more)

SIX (ORGANS) OF DIAMONDS

posted September 15th, 2021

At the invitation of KPM MusicSix Organs of Admittance wizard Ben Chasny stepped behind his acoustic to produce a pristine new set of guitar instrumentals. Is it library music, or deeply personal essays on a formative instrument? Under Ben's fingers we hear it both ways and beyond: The Intimate Landscape is simply beautiful music that spans beyond the limits of folk, ambient and soundtrack music.

On "Six Diamonds," the latest single from The Intimate LandscapeChasny fuses melancholic acoustic guitar with... (read more)

TY SEGALL RELEASES VIDEO FOR "HARMONIZER"

posted September 13th, 2021

Ty Segalls new album Harmonizer is a synthtastic production redesign and makes for some of his cleanest songs and starkest ideas to date. Bringing together booming drum machines and corrosive guitars, “the wonder of sound is baked into the album from the title down, be it twin leads or the multi-part vocal harmonies that coat every song” (Brooklyn Vegan). After surprise releasing the album last month via Drag City (the physical release is set for October) and sharing the video for “Feel Good,”... (read more)

TAKING THE FAR VIEW WITH JOEL VANDROOGENBROECK

posted September 7th, 2021

Looking at history the wrong way round through the telescope, objects may appear closer than they actually were! Yeah, life's a Rashomon even in reverse. Sometimes you have to take the long view - or in this case, the Far View, which compiles tracks from Joel Vandroogenbroeck’s legendary Coloursound library music series — a uniquely trippy catalog of sonic vignettes, freshly remastered from the original analog reels and long overdue for their day in the library music sun!

The late Joel Vandroogenbroeck was among... (read more)

SUPERWOLVES RESCHEDULE FALL TOUR

posted August 26th, 2021

Regretfully, Matt Sweeney and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy will be rescheduling most of their upcoming Fall tour with Jonathan Richman. With the ever-evolving situation due to COVID-19 and having been through lockdown before, out of an abundance of caution we want to be preemptive for the safety of the performers, crew and audience. Some of the shows cannot be rescheduled due to conflicts beyond our control, but Superwolves are working hard to ensure they will perform at each city when it is safe to do so. Here's to...

IN JOVIAN ORBIT WITH MESS ESQUE

posted August 24th, 2021

Mess Esque, the newly minted duo of Mick Turner and Helen Franzmann, have been mixing up the medicine for their second single "Jupiter". For a new band it really helps to have a hit single, so this new radio friendly unit shifter remixes one album cut, reshaping it into a smoldering, cascading indie ballad!

If you've heard the first Mess Esque single ("Take It Outside"), you have a perhaps already divined their intent: to ride the sleepy drift past moments of stasis, beyond... (read more)
