Digital Noise Academy’s kickstarter reboot

26th Jun 12 (Tue) Leave a comment

Yikes! I haven’t blogged all month!  Keeping busy at work, not as many shows this month for me, and I suppose not much “new music” breaking in June.  Fiona Apple’s new album The Idler Wheel coming out today; so grab that!

Also, I posted a couple months ago about Digital Noise Academy’s Kickstarter.  The collaborative group is:

  • Ken Andrews (Failure, On, Year of the Rabbit, worked with Tool, A Perfect Circle, NIN, Tenacious D, Copeland, etc)
  • Sharky Laguana (Creeper Lagoon)
  • Charlotte Martin
  • Justin Meldal-Johnsen (NIN, Beck, Air, M83)
  • Fernando Sanchez (Lenka, Ben Jelen, Racheal Yamagata, Chris Cornell)
  • Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker the Star, Sam Roberts).

The original Kickstarter had lofty goals, but didn’t meet them (too much, too short of a window)… well, they rebooted it and are almost there – needing only another $4k with 45 days to spare.  I think it’s going to be a rad album!

Check it out and help them out!

FINALLY… Digital Noise Academy – debut album {kickstarter}

2nd May 12 (Wed) 1 comment

So, Digital Noise Academy/DNA (formerly Los Angeles Digital Noise Academy/LADNA) has been teasing us with new album promises way back since the MySpace days.  The collaborative led by one of my favorite musicians Ken Andrews (Failure, On, Year of the Rabbit, worked with Tool, A Perfect Circle, NIN, Tenacious D, Copeland, etc) is what brings me to the table, but the other members are tops, too… Sharky Laguana (Creeper Lagoon), Charlotte Martin (Herself), Justin Meldal-Johnsen (NIN, Beck, Air, M83), Fernando Sanchez (Lenka, Ben Jelen, Racheal Yamagata, Chris Cornell), and Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker the Star, Sam Roberts).

Well, now they officially have a kickstarter.  I think it’s a great project, and I sincerely hope it gets made.  Check out the first single they released two years ago (which will be on the album), then check out the Kickstarter pagerebooted link

They have already completed two songs “Melting Inside” and “Thursday Night Party.”  Both these songs are currently available for free download on their website www.digitalnoiseacademy.com.

Damien Jurado – Maraqopa (Feb 2012)

16th Nov 11 (Wed) 1 comment

From Secretly Canadian’s blog…

We are so, so excited to tell you that a new Damien Jurado record is going to be released on February 21st! It’s called Maraqopa, and we are sharing the first song with you, “Nothing is the News,” today.

Welcome to Maraqopa population, 2. Damien Jurado’s newest collaboration with producer Richard Swift drops us into a brutal and benevolent landscape. The bold strokes and new turns the pair made with 2010′s Saint Bartlett are taken even further. He throws open the gate on his oft insular dirges and allows them do some real wilding out in the canyon. In Maraqopa, the vistas are miles-wide; the action is more dynamic; the close-ups sweaty and snarling. The strummed desert blues that begin “Nothing is the News” quickly bursts open into an Eddie Hazel-worthy supernova shred session, all of it swirling in tinny-psych and Echoplex’d howls. We’ve never heard anything like this from Jurado.

Read more at the SC blog.  You can pre-order it HERE on CD or vinyl.

Listen to (and download the mp3 for) the lead-off track “Nothing is the News” here:

Maraqopa Tracklisting:
1. Nothing is the News
2. Life Away from the Garden
3. Maraqopa
4. This Time Next Year
5. Reel to Reel
6. Working Titles
7. Everyone a Star
8. So On, Nevada
9. Museum of Flight
10. Mountains Still Asleep

Also announced was a “phone booth” that you can presumably call in and leave Damien a message:

Maraqopa phonebooth (425) 234-7859

This number has been set up for you to call anytime of the day. The distorted sound of a piano will play, and then you leave a message. This is a voice mail service, no human will answer.

I have no idea what the purpose of this phone booth may be… I dare you  to call in an order of take out.

Shara Worden on Prefuse73’s new album

29th Apr 11 (Fri) Leave a comment

I should change the name of this blog to something to do with Shara Worden (aka My Brightest Diamond).  She took some time off to have a baby, but now it seems like she’s popping up all over the indie-rock landscape.

This time, she lends her golden voice to the Prefuse 73 track “The Only Hand To Hold” from their just released album, The Only She Chapters.  The song is available now as a FREE mp3 download over on their website.

The album (mp3/wav/flac/CD/LP) is available to purchase at BLEEP.
