Pernice Brothers ‘Goodbye, Killer’ (One Little Indian, 14th June)

April 16th, 2010

Joe Pernice on Pernice Brothers’ Goodbye, Killer: “My brother Bob once said that he started playing guitar when he was six, and 30 years later still played like a six year-old. How true, how true. He also engineers like a six-year-old, which is seriously, a very, very good way to engineer. In my opinion, he did a great job capturing the sound of a band. And all hyperbole aside, recording great musicians like James Walbourne and Ric Menck doesn’t hurt. For Bob, recording someone like me definitely hurt. I’m not the most relaxed guy alive. Apparently—and I have no recollection of this—I berated Bob at every turn like he was a redheaded step child. (I’m told some of the outtakes are pretty funny. My business partner Joyce wants Ashmont to release them on a CD entitled “Unknowns at their Worst.”) It’s not all my fault. I can’t help myself, and Menck and James did little to rope me in. I vaguely recall Menck saying, “Original Pernice (me) why do you treat Other Pernice (Bob) like he’s the younger brother? Don’t be an ID-ee-it. He’s working his ass off. And besides, look at him. He’d crush you like a grape.” Then James would or wouldn’t perk up from a state of constant transcontinental jet lag and exclaim, “Did someone mention grapes? I’m famished. I could murder a proper full English.” Strange, because in my mind all we did was eat.”

New Kathryn Williams song. So beautiful

March 26th, 2010

Kathryn Williams on her new song Just a Feeling, out on One little Indian, May 17th: Taken from her eighth studio album ‘The Quickening’ (and her first for new label One Little Indian), Kathryn explains the genesis of the song: “I wrote ‘Just A Feeling’ in the back of a car driving in LA. We were going up a big hill listening to – I can’t remember – but it was melancholic. Out of the window was the Hollywood sign and below us, lines of tall palm trees in really straight lines. The sadness of the song sounded more like a sleepy sunbather in this bleaching sun. I couldn’t believe the traffic. Coming in to LA the roads looked like molten lava, just wide moving rows of lights in the dark. “Our car in 20 million like a ghost.” Being away from people you love in such a vast city makes you ask yourself things, “Is belief a scratch you’ve got to itch, what if love is just a feeling?”

Dictaphones vol 1

March 13th, 2010

About Emit Bloch:…” Recorded for £6 on a Sony cassette dictaphone as a demo for his soon-to-be music publishers (MuteSong), Emit Bloch’s’ Dictaphones Vol. 1’ is truly a credit-crunch album. Fueled by Bloch’s rapid-fire lyricism, unique guitar styling and cosmic/comic imagery, the 16 songs collected here are a tour through a wild west of eloquent grifters, talking rivers, bleeding clouds, interplanetary frontiersmen and neighborly psychopaths. Born on a cattle ranch in Utah and transplanted by his professor father to Berkeley, CA – ground zero for all things beatnik – Bloch has a rich history to draw on when creating his distinct American music”…

That`s what he is saying: “I’d demoed these new songs at my kitchen table in London. They got me a publishing deal and some money to record with. As usual, the raw demos sounded better than the studio recordings, but quite unusual everyone agreed to put them out instead,” says Bloch. Helpful was the fact that when an early edition of the dictaphone recordings was issued to iTunes through Blochs imprint, iDot (via One Little Indian), the recordings were chosen by iTunes editors as a front page pick.

I love his songs, clever lyrics, his unique finger picking, his phrasing and this cheapo Sony Dictaphone sound. Buy the album – out on One little Indian April 5th. I just got a promo copy of ‘Dictaphones vol 1’. Listen to the wonderful Trees
