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.

The first session posted and the last session recorded from Pickathon 2011, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Damien Jurado and his new band take us through “Static To Be Sold” recorded by Live & Breathing in the Pickathon Pumphouse:

 

Per Damien, the song won’t be on the record, but will be out on a 7″ vinyl…

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.

Toad the Wet Sprocket – ‘All You Want’ (2011)

6th Apr 11 (Wed) Leave a comment

Toad the Wet Sprocket broke up in 1998.  In its ashes, Glen Phillips‘ solo career and Lapdog was born.  Glen has put out a number of solo albums and side-projects, Lapdog put out two great albums, and “Toad” has since gotten back together on occasion to tour.  Well, due to being signed to a major label, they never really owned those recordings that they made back in the day.  Enter… All You Want

ALL YOU WANT is us reclaiming our past for ourselves. While making this album, we got to look under the hood at the parts we’d written so long ago, pull apart some of the magic of the originals, and in some cases, update arrangements, tempos or attitudes that we thought we could improve upon with the benefit of a little hindsight.

The process of recording this music again brought us closer together as a band, and closer to the songs that we’ve lived with for so long. These songs still mean a lot to us, and we hope our fans enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed making them.
-Dean, Glen, Randy, and Todd

The album will be available for sale exclusively at the band’s website and shows prior to a formal release date later this spring via both physical and digital retail outlets.

Steven Wilson’s TAPE EXPERIMENTS 1985-1986

9th Nov 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson is always putting out something… this week, he announced he’s making available Tape Experiments 1985-1986 on vinyl via Tone Float.

It was originally intended as a pre-order bonus to his Insurgentes dvd movie release (but withdrawn in favor of a much more recent piece of music), Steven Wilson decided to make his two and four track tape experiments from 1985/1986 available via Soundcloud (free legal download link).

Those tracks are now being released as 180 gram black vinyl album, entitled Tape Experiments 1985/1986.  In tie with the flaws of the original grimy cassettes they were taken from, the album is designed with the 70s vinyl bootleg records in mind (and in particular the legendary takrl label), complete with an insert cover.  The release date is November 29, 2010, and the album is available exclusively from the Tonefloat store.

Carissa’s Wierd – “Die”

2nd Jun 10 (Wed) Leave a comment

News from SeattleShowGal’s blog

When the story broke May 3, 2010 that Carissa’s Wierd were going to be doing a reunion show on July 9th and releasing a retrospective with Hardly Art, the blogosphere was a flutter. The original Carissa’s Weird crew that split and went on to be solo act Sara Cahoone and others formed Band of Horses were coming back and in righteous form! Today, Hardly art is being kind enough to share the track “Die” off the up and coming retrospective They’ll Only Miss You When You Leave: Songs 1996-2003, scheduled to be released on July 13, 2010. The strings swoon as the keys dance and vocals charm. Get it! Listen to it. Download it. Be excited for the upcoming show and release.

Carissa’s Wierd – “Die” (hosted by Seattle Show Gal)

It’s available for pre-order now at http://hardlyart.com/carissaswierd.html and the first 50 pre-orders get a special limited edition 7″ vinyl.

Good :) & Bad :(

First, the good newsBrian Borcherdt of one of my favorite groups (HOLY FUCK) just released his solo album, Torches (along with the Ward Colorado demos).  It’s available for free download over on his website… and if you like it, you can (and should) buy the CD or vinyl.  Get the free album by going to his site (click the album cover below):

(click it and download the music free)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

And now the (probably) bad newsApple bought Lala.  OK, it may turn out for the best… but I really dug Lala when it started out as a CD sharing service (you mail off CDs you don’t want, get CDs you do want from others).  It’s been a while since my peak use with them (I’ve run out of stuff to send), and they changed their focus away from CD swap to streaming about a year or more ago.

Anyway, I like Apple, I like Lala… but I dread what the acquisition will mean.  I mean, pretty soon, are we gonna have to log-in to our iTuMyFaceChaseTube to check the video upload of our bank account’s status update with a free music download?

I just hope my indie bastion of hope, CD Baby, doesn’t get swallowed up by Apple or Amazon or Goodyear or Olive Garden… that would be a sad day for sure.
