Persephone's Bees - Dig It! Buy It!

"Ugly Thing" by Persephone's Bees

The single "Ugly Thing" will be available October 26 via CDbaby, iTunes, Amazon etc.
YOu may download it fro .99 from the band here.
The next single - as yet unknown - will see a 7" release.

A message from the band regarding the .99 proce tag:
"Regarding 99c. Many people these days don't want to pay for music, and I understand the reasons, but I'm a believer that 99c is not really big money to pay for a piece of art, for something that will give you joy, inspiration, or even put you in a sad pensive mood and make you think. People spend more money on Hollywood movies thus making rich people richer, or spend more money on beer, coffee and cigarettes thus making rich people richer.

Tom and I spent a long time making this record, as usual we attended to every detail, we strive for quality (hopefully), we put love and sorrow and our whole life into it, and we hope people will experience some kind of feeling while listening to our songs. By paying 99 c per song you're saying to us 'We appreciate your effort, we're recognizing your quality, we're helping the arts!' And we do thank you for that! It will also allow us to continue making new songs for you." - Angelina/Persephone's Bees

You can buy the last album here:

Here's a great single from that album called "Nice Day."

Moogfest 2010



As MoogFest 2010 draws even closer (just two weeks to go!!), we have more exciting announcements to share with you! MoogFest 2010 has added Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set) to the already incredible Saturday lineup, and a very rare performance by Younger Brother (Live) to Sunday’s bill, rounding out what is certainly the biggest Halloween party around!

Additionally, the festival’s film screenings for Saturday and Sunday afternoon are now in place -- MoogFest 2010 will be presenting the Southeast premiere of “Bouncing Cats: A film by Nabil Elderkin & Red Bull Media House” and “Moog: a documentary film by Hans Fjellestad”. Following the screening of “Moog: a documentary film by Hans Fjellestad”, Herb Deutsch (co-collaborator on first Modular in 1963) and DJ Spooky, both of whom are featured in the documentary, will take part in a Q & A session with the audience.

Film Screenings Schedule (all shown at the Fine Arts Theatre):

Saturday 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM -- Bouncing Cats: A film by Nabil Elderkin & produced by Red Bull Media House

Sunday 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM -- Moog: a documentary film by Hans Fjellestad

Sunday 2:15 PM - 2:30 PM -- Q&A with Herb Deutsch and DJ Spooky

“Bouncing Cats” is the inspiring story of one man’s attempt to create a better life for the children of Uganda using the unlikely tool of hip-hop with a focus on b-boy culture and breakdance. In 2006, Abraham “Abramz” Tekya, a Ugandan b-boy and A.I.D.S. orphan created Breakdance Project Uganda (B.P.U.) with the goal of establishing a free workshop that would empower, rehabilitate and heal the community by teaching youth about b-boy culture. Abramz invited Crazy Legs, one of the founding members of the Rock Steady Crew, to visit Uganda and teach these classes. From the southern slums of Uganda to the war-torn North, Crazy Legs encountered a passion for hip-hop and desire to learn amongst the most squalid conditions. “Bouncing Cats” follows Abramz, Crazy Legs, and Breakdance Project Uganda on a journey to use hip-hop culture for positive social change. The film features narration by Common and interviews with Mos Def, Will.I.Am, and K’Naan.

MoogFest 2010, a three-day festival celebrating the innovative spirit of Bob Moog, takes place Halloween weekend, October 29-31, in Asheville, NC.

Subpop gives out Dntel Goodies

Head on over to Sub Pop for free downloads of new Awith tracks "After Parties" and "Flares" with this magical link.

The P.R. skinny:

Dntel is the operational alias for Los Angeles resident Jimmy Tamborello. Jimmy also sometimes records and releases music under the name James Figurine. He is also the host of the Dublab radio show “Dying Songs.” And, he is also, it's true, one half of The Postal Service (whose 2003 album Give Up is Sub Pop's second best-selling album of all time). In 2007, we at Sub Pop released the most recent Dntel album, entitled Dumb Luck which included contributions from a whole raft of talented people too numerous to list here (a short version of that list would include members of Grizzly Bear, Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes, and Arthur & Yu).

Dec. 7th, 2010 we are releasing new music from Dntel in the form of a pair of companion EPs, entitled After Parties 1 and (very sensibly, given their complementary relationship) After Parties 2. These two EPs collect 8 new Dntel tracks (3 on After Parties 1 and 5 on After Parties 2) which are a bit more minimalist and experimental in nature, all of them instrumental, and feature (to the best of our "knowledge") a list of guest contributors numbering exactly zero. These 8 new tracks are also, we are able to discern even through the mist of biases both personal and professional, really something special.
Both After Parties 1 and After Parties 2 will be available on 12" vinyl and as weightless, odorless digital audio files; neither will be available on CD.
It is worth mentioning here that at some as-yet-undefined point in 2011 we will be releasing an expanded reissue of Dntel's 2001 full-length Life Is Full of Possibilities, which is not only a great record, but notable for, among a great many other things, including the collaboration between Ben Gibbard and Jimmy (on "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan") which led to the formation of The Postal Service.

Third Man Brings You 4,6,7,8s Woo=Hoo

Straight from the Third Man website:
We’ve been sitting on this one so long it feels good to finally let it free like some doves at a wedding.

You may know them from “Kill Bill” but let it be known that for many years prior the’s toiled away in their own 1960’s gold-glitter garage universe without the slightest notice from those outside a small circle a like-minded anoraks.

That’s why Third Man is overjoyed to reissue the self-titled LP from Japan’s finest female garage rockers. As its first-ever domestic US release, this album is a long-time personal favorite of Jack White’s and he’s been known to break into “I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield” (a veritable classic included on this LP) without notice during White Stripes live performances. Couple that with impeccable covers of “Harlem Nocturne”, “Long Tall Sally” as well other originals and what you get is as close to a modern garage “must-have” as there is.

Third Man spared no expense with this project from the gold-foil embossing on the old-style, tip-on LP cover (something the band wanted on the original issue of the record but which was not feasible at the time) to the limited edition, split-color black and gold pressing...this project was a labor of love. Split-colors will only be available randomly in mail orders. No copies will be sold from Third Man.

SO...To celebrate our monumental 2nd mind blowing re-issue this year (see Jon Wayne) the go go garage girls are dropping by from Japan to play their first show in America in several years! That’s right, the 5,6,7,8’s are playing Live at Third Man Records on Oct. 22nd. I can hear you wondering already if the show is going to be recorded for a live album. Aren’t you astute? Of course it is. And we wouldn’t have one of our favorite bands crossing continents and oceans and not stop by Third Man Studios for a Blue Series would we? WELL WOULD WE???

The 5,6,7,8’s record re-issue release party and live show get down:
Third Man Records
Oct. 22nd
Doors at 9pm, TMR DJs from doors, 5,6,7,8’s live at 10:30pm
This show is 21+ and a bar will be open. Sorry, no kids, no BYOB.
Advance tickets available at Third Man Records for $5

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Dirty Shirt Rock ‘N’ Roll: The First Ten Years

Check out Halloween Mix 2010 #3 for a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion song "She Said."

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Dirty Shirt Rock ‘N’ Roll: The First Ten Years
A Kaye Telle Review

Jon Spencer is a man of many faces. He is a crazed preacher proselytizing the electric gospel. He is a musical ringmaster with Tourette’s Syndrome repeatedly proclaiming, “the blues is number one.” He is the majestic mumbling Boomhauer of rock and roll. He and the Blues Explosion are here for one reason: to save rock and roll. And they do it repeatedly, as though it simply flows from their veins; as if they were born to do it. If you’ve ever seen them live, you know two things for certain: they take no prisoners and they are not fucking around.

These three men—Jon Spencer (vocals and guitar), Judah Bauer (guitar, backing vocals), and Russell Simins (drums)—come at you with the force of a tsunami. Spencer alternately oozes sex and confidence while spazzing out like a man possessed; Bauer is cool and laid back while laying down the foundation; and Simins looms large over his drum kit building beats like Godzilla driving a freight train that’s speeding straight for you. Phil Spector built an undeniable wall of sound, but The Blues Explosion could knock it down with just a few riffs and not even break a sweat. The Blues Explosion are a force to be reckoned with, so one had better get in on the party or get the hell out of the way.


If you ever bought a ticket for the ride, man, were you in for a good time. These boys tore it up. They made rock and roll that hit you in the gut and the crotch like rock music was intended to do. It was powerful heady stuff. Sure Spencer had his shtick, and fans made sport of counting how many times he shouted “Blues Explosion!” or “number one!” during a show or a song, but there was also honesty. The Blues Explosion were genuine. They delivered on the promise of rock and roll and then some.

If you have yet to hear The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, it’s fair to say that I both pity and envy you. I pity the fact that you missed out on one of the greatest live experiences to be had by a rock music fan, and pity that you’ve missed out on endless hours of musical bliss.

But I envy the experience you will have upon your first listen, the joy you will experience when you hear the bands new release Dirty Shirt Rock ‘N’ Roll, a best-of compilation by one of the best rock bands there ever was. . . or will be. From the blues infused down ‘n’ dirty “Chicken Dog” to the lazy groove of “Magical Colors” to the grimy, rockabilly humor of “Blues X Man,” this album is all killer, no filler.

“Bellbottoms” (which always makes for the perfect opener to a mix tape), comes in with strings and lulls the listener into a slow groove and then smacks the shit out of them with piercing guitars, drums going off like machine gun shells hitting the pavement, and ’round about the four minute mark—when Spencer proclaims “I Wanna Dance”—it gets even more intense, which hardly seems possible. “Shake Em Down” makes dance music from good, old fashioned blues. “Flavor” is one of the best collaborations ever to hit wax with Beck rapping and Mike D adding flair, not to mention the entertaining music video. Remember those? Not just videos, but entertaining videos? Yeah, The Blues Explosion had those, too.

It was just announced that The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion will perform at the Pitchfork Festival and if you have the means to see them live—do it. Make it happen, because I’d hedge a bet it will end up being one of your favorite concert memories.

Thanks for coming back, Blues Explosion. Now its time for everyone else to step aside so you can show them how it’s done. Yes indeed, the blues is number one.

New Video From Blue Water White Death (Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart & Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg)

Here's New Video From Blue Water White Death (Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart & Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg)
“Grunt Tube”

Blue Water White Death, the collaboration between Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart and Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg, has already been named one of the most anticipated albums of the year by Flavorpill. Prior to its impending release on 10/12 via Graveface, the duo is releasing a video for the song “Grunt Tube”, created by Jamie Stewart. In his own words, the video comprises footage of the following:

* Looking out of the window of a car while on a one-month drive through the most beautiful and bleak parts of the U.S.A. and Canada while infected with swine flu.
* Close up shots of computer screens while watching art movies, porn, and cheap serial television in extreme states of drunkenness and jet lag.
* Shots of over-growth while being lost in Appalachia.
* Taping quotes from books about the CIA’s involvement in Afghanistan, gay life in Japan, and early, early 4AD records.
* Ultra close-ups of those little toys on a string that you get from 50-cent vending machines that you attach to your Game Boy or cell phone.

Pre-order Blue Water White Death here from Graveface.

Garbo's Daughter / Mandy+Jason Re-release

Garbo's Daughter has a cassette EP out on Burger records. I've blogged about them before, because they are truly fun, energetic, sweet sugary pop straight from the heart - and I mean that in the best way possible.

The 6 song EP (cassette) Mandy and Jason For a Time is available via the fantabulous Burger Records. It consists of archival recordings from 2002 that Mandy Mullins recorded with friend Jason Testasecca. You may know his other band, Nobunny! The songs were previously released via Go Zombie! Records. Please support Garbo's daughter because they're D.I.Y. and F-U-N.

I just received my cassette and I can't wait to give it a few listens as soon as possible. I know it will be good. Burger Records releases some catchy tunes - so surf on over to their website for more of their offerings.

Here's a live video by Cumstain from their cassette release party at Burger's store:

And be sure to vist Garbo's Daughter's myspace: here. There you'll see the Floridas Dying Compilation with 13 tracks including Johnny and the Limelites, NoBunny, Yolks, Sweet Sixteens, Brian's Dirty Business, Hunx, Sexcapades, Rantouls, Personal & the Pizzas, Puddin' Pops, Coconut Coolouts, Slippery Slopes, and Garbo's Daughter.

White Denim Release New Album and Announce Tour Dates

The new album by White Denim, Last Day Of Summer is available as a free download here.

White Denim - "I Start To Run" from Downtown Music on Vimeo.

A message from the band:
howdy folks,

we hope that you are doing well today. the band has been straight up busy in the studio this summer with a fairly large collection of songs. we are pleased to share a handful of them with you right now. this record is something we made as a little summer retreat from our ongoing work on the third full length. many of these tunes have been bouncing around since the formation of the band back in 06. we were super pumped to utilize a few fresh and casual musical approaches on this record. we hope that you find something that satisfies you within this body of work. if you enjoy the music and feel compelled to support the group, please notice the support button beneath the download link and the image. we are going to be heading out on the roads this october and would greatly appreciate anything that you would feel comfortable contributing.

i would also like to add that we are still hard at work on the as yet untitled third lp. we expect to be wrapping that record at the end of the month. we can’t wait to play loads of this new material for you folks this winter and next year. at the moment i am writing all of the album info on a limited run of cd copies of ‘last day of summer’ that will be lovingly hand packaged and available at our fall shows. can’t wait to see you soon!

all the best,

Front Line Assembly Cancel U.S. TOur

NEW YORK, NY - Metropolis recording artists FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY (FLA) regretfully are being forced to cancel their planned U.S. tour this Fall. "We have had too many problems putting the tour together, and the bottom line is if we can't put on a good show for you the fans, then it's just not worth it. We apologise to all of you," says keyboardist/vocalist Bill Leeb.

Planned to begin on Oct. 31st and proceed straight through to the end of November, the tour would have been their first since 2007. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen and problematic issues, the band has instead opted to look forward and plan for 2011 to tour the U.S. in support their critically-hailed album Improvised. Electronic. Device.

Adds keyboardist Jeremy Inkel, "We are sorry to all the fans and promoters and we will do everything we can to make it happen next year." The European tour is unaffected and will continue as planned.
Riding high on a crest of applause, the new album (often shortened to "I.E.D.") has been described by Outburn Magazine as, "a collection of cohesive and adrenaline charged songs that maintains the complexities of the band's best material." FearNet says, "Through the years, there's always been a memorable hook and infectious beat lurking in FLA's dark textured atmospheres, like a sinister prize in every box... and this record is no exception." NBC-TV chimed, "Pounding beats. Brooding and extremely dark lyrics. Metal guitars and some of the best production out there in the industrial genre. This is Front Line Assembly at the top of their collective game."

Formed in 1986 when Bill left Skinny Puppy, they are still as vital and energetic as ever. Front Line Assembly is Bill Leeb (keyboards, vocals), Jeremy Inkel (keyboards), Chris Peterson (keyboards) and Jared Slingerland (guitar). Improvised. Electronic. Device. was released via Metropolis Records on June 22, 2010.
