Lou Barlow + the missingmen announce tour

April 7th, 2010

Lou Barlow + the missingmen will hit the road this summer in support of Lou’s most recent release, Goodnight Unknown. This will be the first chance to see Lou playing headlining shows with the missingmen since the new album came out, so get your tickets early! If you don’t see your city below, never fear! More dates will be announced soon!

Borrowing the live-band energy of Dinosaur Jr. and the stylistic reach of Sebadoh, Barlow has built on Emoh’s full production and written a set of immediate, melodic pop songs that Lou describes as, “a cross between my later work with Folk Implosion and my earlier work with Sebadoh…to my ears, anyway.”

Visit our special LooTube channel for a series of videos and a making-of documentary from Goodnight Unknown, and you can preview the full album and order your copy on CD or digital download now in the Merge store.

Check out this video from ‘Goodnight unknown’

Catch him at a theatre near you:

Trent M”ller

April 7th, 2010

Copenhagen-based electronic artist and designer Anders Trentemøller has announced the worldwide release of his eagerly awaited second full-length album, Into The Great Wide Yonder,  on his own label, In My Room, on June 7th. Into the Great Wide Yonder follows Trentemøller’s outstanding previous works: his award-winning 2006 debut, The Last Resort, as well as multiple singles, EPs, and remixes, including double-album The Trentemøller Chronicles; and Harbour Boat Trips 01: Copenhagen, Trentemøller’s first-ever mix CD. 

The first single of the album, the beautifully tender “Sycamore Feeling”, features Danish singer-songwriter Marie Fisker, and the album includes other collaborations with English artist Fyfe Dangerfield (from UK-based Guillemots) and singers Solveig Sandnes and Josephine Philip (from the debuting Danish indie girl-duo Darkness Falls.) Fellow musicians and friends have contributed to the visuals, too, with design artists Henrik Vibskov and Andreas Emenius handling the artwork, and a video from director Jesper Just to be announced shortly. 

Into the Great Wide Yonder will be released on June 7th, but “Sycamore Feeling”, the first single, drops in early April. A US tour with a live band will follow this fall.

April 4th, 2010

After a long night of critical graphic design issue solving, and 6 long  months of editing, my Berlin Wall2Wall is finally prepared to go to print. This is what the foreword says:

‘I spent a long weekend in Berlin to explore the local indie music scene on the 20th anniversary of the razing of the Wall. I was afraid the city would have lost the roughness I imagined once existed before I got a chance to be a part of it – I had heard it was changing rapidly, mainly as a result of the rising cost of living, which was having a direct impact on the ability of struggling artists to create and experiment, and ultimately survive. I was amazed to see how cutting edge it still is.

During the day time I walked around the city with my tiny Nikon camera in an attempt to capture the industrial and ragged face of this gray yet vibrant city. I have decided to publish this lofi collection – a visual memoir of a short time spent that I can’t forget. I hope that I have been able to convey to you the darkness and light that make this city so colorful. Enjoy.’

I have decided to post a web edition of Wall2Wall for our dedicated art lovers crowd .

O.Children – ‘Ruins’

April 2nd, 2010

O.Children release first US single ‘Ruins’ on Deadly People Recordings on April 19th. Co-produced with Jas Shaw (Simian Mobile Disco)
At 6ft 8″ tall, Tobi O’Kandi isn’t your average looking lead-man of a four piece London band currently causing a huge stir in Europe. Then again, ?O.Children are a far cry from any other band you might be listening to this Spring…unless of course you’re listening to early Cure, The Chameleons, Sisters Of Mercy, Bauhaus, Joy Division or Echo & The Bunnymen right now. 

O’Kandi, the bands lead singer and chief songwriter channels the undeniable inner and outer workings of a true front-man, reminiscent of the days when the late and great Joey Ramone and Lux Interior ruled the roosts and during a time when to be a freak was to be truly punk. 

What’s so special about O.Children — along with O’Kandi’s haunting baritone vocals and stage presence — is the bands rhthym section, carried by Andi Sleath (drums) and Harry James (bass) who provide a driving and hypnotic darkness that blends so harmoniously with O’Kandi’s lead vocals, working in perfect contrast to Gauthier Ajarrista‘s uplifting, minimal and shoe-gazed guitar playing. With a single such as ‘Ruins‘ to introduce them to the world, it seems these four lads — still only 19 to 21– could quite have possibly created one of the most exciting sounds and band to come out in 2010. 
Currently finishing their debut album in a Kent countryside studio, and due out this summer.

David Karsten-Daniels & Fight The Big Bull ‘I Mean To Live Here Still’ (FatCat album, 21st June 2010)

April 2nd, 2010

Daniels flew out to Virginia in January 2010, joining the the band to play through these songs in White’s converted attic space at night, before a three-day, self-produced session at Lance Koehler’s Minimum Wage studios in Richmond, playing the tracks live, all together in one space. Daniels began an exhaustive mixing process after taking these recordings back to the West Coast, exchanging detailed notes online with White, this dialogue being of similarly collaborative weight as the earlier composition methods. 

David Karsten Daniels – an immensely talented, formally-trained composer/musician with a background in hymn singing and four-track experimentation, and a release history of gentle, acoustic, plaintive folk music embellished with touches of orchestration and jazz – made a tentative connection with Fight the Big Bull in 2008. The latter, a nonet led by composer/arranger/guitarist Matthew White, exist loosely in the Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Ornette Coleman plane of jazz, yet are fiercely, often unpredictably, unique. The band’s head-spinning spirals of instrumentation and experimentation, a modern counterpart to fundamental traditions of experimental jazz, to Ascension and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, are described, aptly, as “messy, glorious, big-hearted.” Comprising trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, trombones, upright bass, electric guitar, percussion and drums, their instrumental pallette is truly broad in its scope despite its markedly traditional makeup.

Lach Presents… 5 Acts for 5 Bucks at Webster Hall April 14th

April 2nd, 2010

East Village music legend Lach presents five acts for five bucks every Wednesday night in The Marlin Room at Webster Hall (125 East 11th Street). Doors are at 7pm for ages 18+. Five dollar admission, no drink minimum.

Coming to Webster Hall on Wednesday April 14th, Lach Presents…

7:30 – Scott Rudd – Renowned photographer picks up guitar and does in songs what he did in photos, he tells a story in the flash of a moment.

8:00 – Isto – A full beard has been a part of Chris White’s life since 2001. Since then, he has shaved approximately five times. Chris White has been described as a combination of Django Reinhardt, Frank Sinatra, and Mel Blanc. This generous description may not be entirely accurate, but it sounds impressive. When people ask Chris what kind of guitar he plays, he usually has to look inside the sound hole to remind himself what the model is.

9:00 – Jordan Levinson – Down-home Americana meets Antifolk. Picture Bobby McGee but sung by Dusty Springfield after kicking back a shot of Jack.

10:00 – Da Skufz – Hillary Flowers fronts this group that seem like they came out of a 1920’s speakeasy drawn by Tex Avery. Da Skufz also feature Luigi Babe on guitar and Washboard Bob on, well, washboard; as well as a tag-along group of strippers, card players, saxophonists and other assorted riff-raff. Not to be missed!

11:00 – Crazy and The Brains – One of our fave acts from the latest class of Antifolk. Bright, brash with ridiculous hooks. Violent Femmes meets Gen X with a few Moldy Peaches on the side.


April 2nd, 2010

Bettie Serveert’s new album, Pharmacy of Love, is in stores now via Second Motion Records.  In celebration of the release, Carol van Dyk and Peter Visser got in the studio and recorded this fantastic acoustic take of “Semaphore”. We heard all the fans’ praise of the song and thank you for your support with this free download!  While the acoustic version has stripped the catchy electric guitar riffs, it packs the rhythmic punch and intriguing musical layers that made us fall in love with the song the first time around
