Portland post-rock duo Talkdemonic just premiered their video for “City Sleep” (from their newest album Ruins) on MTV Hive.  The video was directed by Alicia J RoseAnd don’t worry, the high-pitch buzz goes away about 2:30 minutes in as the video gets really interesting

Porcupine Tree’s Anesthetize DVD

3rd Mar 10 (Wed) Leave a comment

Porcupine Tree‘s new live film is approaching completion and a special edition will be available in April, with a regular version to follow in May.  Anesthetize was filmed live over 2 nights in Tilburg, The Netherlands in October 2008, at the end of the Fear of a Blank Planet tour. The 130 minute live film includes a complete performance of the Blank Planet album and 11 other tracks, and was directed and edited by Lasse Hoile on high definition cameras, with the soundtrack mixed into stereo and 5.1 sound.

The special edition will take the form of a cloth bound hard back 120 page book (as per The Incident and Insurgentes deluxe versions) featuring live photography of the band taken over the last 5 years. The book will house both a DVD and a much higher quality Blu-Ray disc version of the film, as well as 2 audio CDs of the soundtrack including one bonus track not featured in the film.  The book and audio CDs will not be included with the standard retail versions of the Blu-Ray/DVD.

Extreme – DVD, new music, tour in 2010

11th Jan 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

News about EXTREME was just posted by Gary Cherone on the band’s Facebook page

Other than the occasional Nuno post, I have been absent from the conversation. So consider this my new years resolution.

That being said, while Rihanna is introducing the pop world to the greatest guitar player on the planet!… there are things happening in the Extreme camp. As you know we are putting out our first official Take Us Alive DVD/CD including 4 bonus videos slated for late March/April [2010]. Yeah I know hurry up! And don’t be surprised when you hear some new music from the band as well as seeing some live dates in 2010!

As for me, I’ve been busy recording new material with [side-band] Hurtsmile, which I’m really excited about. Two of these songs will be featured in a movie/documentary coming out in March (more on that later). One of the songs is an acoustic version of ‘Danny Boy’. Stay tuned.

Sweet!

SC3 @ the Great American Music Hall

3rd Feb 09 (Tue) Leave a comment

Well, I was proven wrong for my naysaying only a week later, the Secret Chiefs 3 have followed up on their promise, and the live DVD is officially set and ready to go.   This was posted to the Web of Mimicry store on Friday:

Live at the Great American Music Hall captures Secret Chiefs 3 in concert with what many consider to be the best of their many line-ups in 14 years of playing.

Shot in 2007 at one of the band’s favorite haunts, in San Francisco, this DVD does justice to a group whose live energy usually exceeds the recorded medium. Renowned for their ultra-elaborate CD productions, Secret Chiefs 3 has also garnered a reputation for the power and immediacy of their live shows. Their fanbase has swelled in recent years and grown accustomed to this live incarnation (the Secret Chiefs 3 bootleg scene is thriving), and they demand an official release! Not just some audience-hand-cam and stereo-mic-job thing, this DVD boasts a pro six-camera shoot with live sound mixed by Billy Anderson, with the multi-channel outs mixed for DVD by Trey Spruance and Randall Dunn (producer of Earth, SUNN O))), Kinski, Wolves in the Throne Room, etc). And it comes with a really nice six-panel gatefold digi-pack with original artwork. At the show, Secret Chiefs 3 performs a set of both familiar and as-yet-unreleased music. The line-up includes Ches Smith (Xiu Xiu, Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog), Shahzad Ismaili (who also plays with Graham Haynes, Laurie Anderson, and Tom Waits), Timb Harris (Estradasphere), Rich Doucette, Peijman Kouretchian, and Jai Young Kim.

Live at the Great American Music Hall DVD also includes an award-winning and seriously dimensionally altered 80-minute stop-motion animation feature film directed by Tawd Dorenfeld that uses Secret Chiefs 3’s live show as a soundtrack.

It’s a pre-order for a March 3rd release.  Mine’s on order… yay…

Oh, and a side note… the Fol Chen CD out on Asthmatic Kitty (entitled Part I: John Shade, Your Fortune’s Made) is really really fun and rad.  It’s poppy-electronic-indie rock goodness.  Quirky, yet melodic.  Totally a gem in 2009, if you ask me.

Isis, Geo 100, and a Secret DVD

24th Jan 09 (Sat) Leave a comment

A trio of music news about Isis, George Hrab, and the Secret Chiefs 3…

As foretold in Pitchfork, post-metal band Isis is due out with their follow-up to the amazingly great In the Absence of Truth (2006) on May 5th on Ipecac Recordings.  The release is April 21 for the special edition vinyl.  Wavering Point is their 5th full-length album, and it features TOOL guitarist Adam Jones on a coupe of songs.  The blurb in Pitchfork cracked me up…

And this is just a wild guess, but I’m thinking most of the songs will start out really quiet and pretty and they they’ll get epically loud and crunchy and they’ll last for about eight minutes. Call me crazy.

…because it’s true.

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

George Hrab‘s Geologic Podcast (i.e.- the best free thing on the internets) just turned 100.  With one every week (give or take), that’s roughly 2 solid years of putting out an almost album’s worth of comedy and musical goodness every stinkin’ week!?  Check him out:

Oh, and he’s working on album #6… which is oh so nice

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

And according to the prophecies and the motto of “screen shot or it didn’t happen,” I present you with this gem of “based on their track record, it probably won’t actually come out on time“… the Secret Chiefs 3 have a live DVD coming out in “March” on Web of Mimicry:

We shall see…
