Jon Spencer: Garage / Proto-Punk Companion – A Mixtape

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:15:31 +0000

“You play that Blues Explosion album from last year a lot, so check this out.” That was Rob Green, a guy I clerked with in an Athens, GA record store in 1995. The record CD he was referring to was Boss Hog’s s/t second full-length. And like the Blues Explosion’s Orange and Extra Width before […]



Julius Eastman :: Femenine

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 20:14:23 +0000

“…wild, grand, delirious, demonic, an uncontainable personality surging into sound,” wrote Alex Ross in his January essay about Julius Eastman for The New Yorker. Though he died in 1990, Eastman’s work has steadily amassed a following in the years since. In 2016, the Frozen Reeds label issued his S.E.M. Ensemble recording of his composition Femenine. […]

There Is No Such Thing As Nowhere :: Marfa Myths 2017

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 14:55:24 +0000

“You have to really want to be here,” Keith Abrahamsson says, overlooking the small West Texas town of Marfa. We’re sitting on the deck of a stone and adobe house just off Highway 90, positioned atop a hill. Since 2014, the label Abrahamsson founded, Mexican Summer, has hosted the annual Marfa Myths festival here with arts […]



Ryo Fukui :: A Letter From Slowboat

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 13:00:26 +0000

Everyone loves a good origin story — it’s human nature. No matter the creative discipline such tales make even the most potent work seem more revelatory. Enter the late Japanese jazz pianist Ryo Fukui. An autodidact, Fukui taught himself piano at age 22 – just four years prior to the release of his exceptional 1976 debut […]



Helen Oakley Dance: The Dances of Bittersweet Hill

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 13:50:04 +0000

Helen Oakley Dance was a pioneering record collector, jazz writer, producer and promoter. During the 1930s, she promoted the first jazz “concert”, where pop music was first played to listen to rather than as a reason to dance, and the first multiracial jazz band. For her, promoting black musicians was a way of promoting civil […]

Jason Molina :: North Star Blues Session – Belgium, 2003

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 16:50:30 +0000

Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia / Magnolia Electric Co) died March 16th, 2013. It’s impossible to overstate the depth and virtue of his songs or the way he poetically expressed the human condition. We originally ran this set in 2013, following his passing. Still touring under the guise of Songs: Ohia, Molina recorded the following live […]

Rob Mazurek :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 15:37:08 +0000

Rob Mazurek is building a life’s work. Coming up in the Chicago free music scene, the cornet player and composer has made pioneering music alongside his peers, including Tortoise, Jim O’Rourke, Stereolab, and Jeff Parker, and collaborated with jazz heroes Bill Dixon, Pharoah Sanders, Yusef Lateef, and more. But one of his longest running collaborations […]



John Scoggins :: Pressed For Time

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 18:54:27 +0000

The existence of the ‘tax scam’ LP is one of the stranger tales of the 1970s record business. In short, crooked label heads would press up demos of unsigned artists, outtakes from known artists, and other various ephemera in limited quantities that were thrown out into the market with zero promotion — all based on […]

The Beach Boys: The River’s A Dream In A Waltz Time

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 13:00:49 +0000

Our enthusiasm for 70s era Beach Boys and the creative stretch of brothers Carl and Dennis Wilson runs deep, notably during the course of albums Surf’s Up, “So Tough”, and Holland. And recently it’s the latter, Holland, a still somewhat overlooked gem from 1973 that is resonating most. Spend enough time with the record and […]

Real Estate :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 18:07:16 +0000

Immediately apparent when listening to Real Estate is their sense of motion. Melodic guitar lines swirl; the rhythm section bounces and folds along; and their literal knack for memory and/or scenic based songwriting transports the listener to a specific place. All of this holds true on their fourth LP, In Mind. Recorded in Los Angeles […]

Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2: The AD Interview

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 16:53:48 +0000

Collaborating as often as they do, Chaz Bundick (Toro y Moi) and Jared and Jonathan Mattson (The Mattson 2) seem especially glowing while speaking of their latest project. As a record, Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 is quite unlike previous releases for both artists, one that takes the listener across a cosmic seesaw, showing […]



Endless Boogie :: Vibe Killer

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 18:37:05 +0000

There are few constants out there in this big, bad world; few things one can always count on. But check it out, Endless Boogie is one of them. Helmed by Paul “Top Dollar” Major, the band’s next lp, Vibe Killer, is out May 19th via No Quarter Records. To commemorate the event, I asked sometime […]
