HIT 'EM WITH YOUR BEST SHOT

posted July 19th, 2022

The toothpaste's almost out the tube! Kamikaze Palm Tree’s desperately dreamed-of Drag City debut drops in just a few mini-weeks (on 8/12) - but who's counting, or even prepared to wait that long? Hungry for more is our assumed default, so hands in the air, 'cuz KPT are delivering another scoop of Mint Chip. This time it’s “The Hit” - both literally and figuratively! At nearly twice the length of the other Mint Chip hits, “The Hit” presents as a fully-rendered tune from youthful... (read more)

WAND ARE HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE

Hot on the heels of their September tour, Wand are pleased to extend their road-stay with more live dates creeping through October!

HELLO, HI....AGAIN!

posted July 12th, 2022

In the fresh wake of Ty Segall's new album release (the festival of da-LIGHT now known all 'round the world as "Hello, Hi"), Ty's booked some solo acoustic dates across this grate land of ours. Yes, he'll soon be strumming his way back through the country he and the Freedom Band just rocked for the first time in forever - but when the hawk flies this Fall it'll be just a man and his acousticaxe, playing tunes and the melodies; a cozy, fuzz-free setting...

THE WHOLE SHEBANG

posted July 11th, 2022

Extended guitar hero Oren Ambarchi returns with Shebang, the latest in the series of intricately detailed long-form rhythmic workouts that includes Quixotism (2014) and Hubris (2016). Like those records, Shebang features an international all-star cast of musical luminaries, their contributions recorded individually in locations from Sweden to Japan yet threaded together so convincingly (by Ambarchi in collaboration with Konrad Sprenger) that it’s hard to believe they weren’t breathing the same studio air! Expanding on the techniques of these past works, intricate themes and variations build... (read more)

SELVES HELP GUIDE

posted July 6th, 2022

First thought, best thought. Until the next thought: a guiding principle for No Age in the 16ish years they’ve been around. Constantly responding to their own streams of consciousness with reductive flexibility, they’ve taken the basic duo of guitar and drums with vocals WAY farther than anyone listening in halcyon Weirdo Rippers days could have guessed. Expounding on those atomic possibilities, they’ve zig-zagged with serpentine precision, ranging outside and back in again—as befits the present thought, whenever it comes. And now, six albums into it... (read more)

HELLO, HI DON'T LIE

posted June 28th, 2022

Some songs are so good, you just can’t get them out of your head. And you never want to! Storing them deep inside allows you to dig 'em up again, like (re)discovered treasure, so they can reinvigorate your worldview all over again. And so the love grows. For Ty, The Mantles’ 2009 slice of garage-pop perfection, “Don’t Lie” is one of those songs. Having played and toured with The Mantles in the Bay Area back in the day, Ty descends compassionately into the... (read more)

IT'S A PREDICAMENT!

posted June 23rd, 2022

It's the summer of their years, and Kamikaze Palm Tree are out on the beach, fully lotioned, essence to essence. With their impending (next classic) album MINT CHIP locked down for a August 12th release, we're just counting the days until we can share all of it, while dropping tracks here and there, for the thrill of it all. Like this one: "Predicament"! With rough-hewn, multicolored animation, John Andrews' video accentuates KPTs signature thickets of psychoactive jangle-thump and flashing harmonics of vocal chorale. The vid's smeary... (read more)

END OF THE ROAD IS JUST THE BEGINNING FOR PURLING HISS

posted June 22nd, 2022

Purling Hiss are coming! Daredevil Thrills!

Get your weird on and come out to see Philly’s fastest and loudest supercharged noise nicks as they floor it onto stages the length and breadth of Engerland. Tokyo-drifting into the End of the Road Fest (with an additional Polizze solo show bolted on) before a rear-drive, burn out nationwide,  Purling Hiss leave nothing but donuts in the tarmac out front of venues as evidence that "Yes, they were really here!”

From London down to Brighton via Leeds,... (read more)

BOWLES AND MACKAY RECUT KEY DATES

posted June 20th, 2022

Due to entirely foreseen circumstances (COVID-19, damn u!), Bill MacKay and Nathan Bowles were forced to cancel their maiden voyage as a duo earlier this month, but fear not, the boys will be back in (your) town before too long! The Spiral Joy band have shifted their road trippin' subtly forward in time, landing in the first week of August to perform at many of the same venues and towns - with the addition of new dates in Durham and Baltimore. How's that for lost... (read more)

A ROYAL SUMMER IN THE NORTHEAST, NORTHWEST, AND IN BETWEEN

posted June 14th, 2022

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's pages-long contributions to modern, recorded music are all kindling for the spark of hardcore fandom, but his stage presence is the crux of what makes him such a phenomenon. A performer like no other, Bonny incorporates a lightness for those who see a darkness, making a place for all the wolves in these cosmos to safely land and enjoy an evening of wild song and willed togetherness!

This summer presents an excellent opportunity to get up close n' deeply personal... (read more)
