A Christmas Gift For You…From Phil Spector

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:45:54 +0000

If you have a window near, go ahead and look outside. Chances are, there are some Christmas lights up somewhere within view. In the coming weeks, you’ll probably frantically brave mall crowds and horrific parking lot jams for last-minute gifts, wondering why it is that you avoid the mall for an entire year only to […]

Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas :: Soundtrack (1977)

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 19:02:04 +0000

It’s the second week of December. The egg nog is spiked, the Christmas tree is trimmed, and if you grew up in the 80s, Jim Henson’s 1977 holiday epic, Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas, really needs no further explanation. Unsanctioned soundtrack and video after jump. Welcome to Frogtown Hollow. Download: Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas :: Soundtrack […]

Tom Waits :: Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 22:34:35 +0000

In December of 1978, Tom Waits recorded an episode of Austin City Limits. The now-mainstay music program was in its relative infancy – only its fourth season – and had built a solid fanbase of Americana music enthusiasts. As the ACL website notes: “…the show came in through the back door, so to speak. Terry […]

Lit Up Like A Christmas Tree: Vol I & II (A Vintage Holiday Mixtape)

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 14:24:46 +0000

“Haul out the holly!! Put up the tree before my spirit falls aga…” Nope, just kidding, none of that here. Conversely, Lit Up Like A Christmas celebrates the, er, other side of seasonal tidings — holiday esoterica from the far corners of vintage twang, fuzz, scuzz, r&b, blues, country, garage, lounge and beyond. So, in […]

Marc Bolan :: T. Rexmas

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 19:58:21 +0000

We’re not sure who the mysterious folks behind the Bolan Boogie Bandcamp are, and even less sure how we missed the 4-track T.Rexmas! EP they uploaded last December, but here it is. T.Rexmas! is mainly built around the stomping woulda-been hit “Christmas Bop,” recorded in 1975 for an aborted single that would have been paired […]

The Beatles :: Christmas Singles Club, 1963-1969

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:45:31 +0000

From 1963 to 1969 the Beatles issued limited edition Christmas fan-club singles on 7 inch flexi-discs. All very relaxed and off the cuff, it’s interesting to note how the cover art changed, along with the music, as the sixties rolled along. Details after the jump…. 1) The Beatles Christmas Record – Issued December 6, 1963 […]

Mazzy Star :: I’ve Been Let Down

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 20:36:33 +0000

Country charm downer via Mazzy Star’s oft-overlooked 1996 lp, Among My Swan – the third and final chapter of the band’s singular ‘90s run. While the record itself does not stray far from the gentle, twinkling shoegaze and desert highway blues of the band’s first two records, “I’ve Been Let Down” works as a gorgeous […]

Frank Zappa :: Little Dots (A Sequel To 2005’s Imaginary Diseases)

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 22:43:08 +0000

In Frank Zappa lore, 1972 is often shortchanged. The year before he toured with Flo and Eddie, witnessed a venue in Montreux burn to the ground during a gig, and closed out the year by being pushed off a London stage. In 1973 he enlisted George Duke, Napoleon Murphy Brock and Ruth Underwood to record […]

Pere Ubu :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 13:00:38 +0000

Over forty years in the game and Pere Ubu is still a work in progress. When Aquarium Drunkard spoke with founding member David Thomas this past week, that much was clear. “I work ten years ahead of time,” Thomas says at one point during our talk, which is why it’s surprising, on some level, to […]

Rob Noyes :: The Feudal Spirit

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 17:21:21 +0000

We may be used to seeing Raymond Pettibon’s unmistakeable artwork on SST albums from the 1980s, but Rob Noyes’ debut — an absorbing guitar soli gem — is a world away from Black Flag. Not that it’s lacking in intensity. At times, Noyes’ dextrous 12-string clusters develop into dense thickets of ringing sound; it’s a beautiful, […]

Unknown Familiarity :: Composers Shawn Parke & Kim Henninger On Embers

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 13:00:29 +0000

Recently, Portland-based composers Shawn Parke and Kim Henninger released the original soundtrack for Embers, director Claire Carré’s science fiction film starring Jason Ritter, Iva Gocheva, and Greta Fernández.  Currently streaming on Netflix, the film makes masterful use of the duo’s compositions, utilizing their enveloping sound as it explores the concept of “memory.” Aquarium Drunkard asked the duo to […]

AD Presents: A Woody Guthrie Companion (A Mixtape)

Based in Seattle, Vandy spent the better part of two years researching Woody Guthrie’s tenure in 1941 with Oregon’s Bonneville Power Administration. In short, Guthrie was employed to promote the benefits of […]
