Tue, 05 Dec 2006 18:52:00 +0000If you just came here to see outdated podcasts, welcome. It's been a while since I've done interviews and even longer since I've done any audio editing for IndieInterviews. I have been busy with my full-time work. (You didn't think this was a job did you?) In addition, I've been contributing both in writing, topic selection and design for my friend Chris Cantalini's oh-so-popular blog GorillaVsBear.net. In addition to the blog, I've been recording and producing his weekly radio program for Sirius satellite radio -- cleverly titled "GorillaVs Bear Blog Radio." We've had a handful of great guests (Tapes 'n Tapes, St. Vincent, Tim DeLaughter and Voxtrot) as well as some truly incredible live "studio" recordings often done in vechicles. Dana Falconberry, Peter and the Wolf's Red Hunter and Sparrow House's Jared VanFleet have overwhelmingly wowed Chris and myself. That being said, IndieInterviews isn't dead. It's just paused. I don't know exactly if it'll take the same form when we start it back up. I've been wanting to do a lot of text interviews. The text form allows me to design .pdfs which I really enjoy and is an overall simpler method than recording and editing audio. I've turned into that which I started the site to avoid. I've also considered doing more video. But video is more time consuming than audio, and it's time -- not passion -- that I'm lacking. Will it start with 2007? I don't know the answer to that. But I, with the help of other bright minds, will return and make use of this exciting site and cleverly-titled domain. Thanks for visiting. While you patiently wait, here's my Top 30 tracks of 2006. You probably saw this list and commentary at GvsB but if not, here it is again. - The Album Leaf Wishful Thinking- Band of Horses The First Song- Birdmonster The Bar in the Back of the Basement- Cat Power Living Proof- Alela Diane Pieces of String- Ghostface Killah Be Easy- Emily Haines A Maid Needs A Maid- Oh No! Oh My! I Love You All The Time- Spank Rock Coke & Wet- Sunset Rubdown They Took A Vote And Said No------------------------------------20. Thom Yorke The Clock19. Joanna Newsom Sawdust & Diamonds18. Midlake Young Bride17. Camera Obscura If Looks Could Kill16. Peter and the Wolf The Bonsai Tree15. J. Tillman My Waking Days14. Catfish Haven Crazy For Leaving13. TV on The Radio I Was a Lover12. Sound Team Back In Town11. The Futureheads Back To The Sea------------------------------------10. Man Man Ice DogsI've been meaning to write iTunes to reclassify Man Man as soul. Peeling back the chaotic yet truly innovative outer skins of Man Man, the listener will find they've exposed some of the strongest melodies and hooks currently being written. If they were given the chance to play this song on national television, they would be the biggest band in America. 9. Sparrow House When I Am GoneThis song (and the entire Falls EP) turned out being exactly what I had hoped the Midlake record would be. What Trials of Van Occupanther was for the distant spring season, Sparrow House's Falls is for the corresponding season. Just like Chris, this song has one of the top iTunes play counts -- try putting it on and listening once. It's harder than you'd think. 8. The Raconteurs Blue VeinsSomehow in 2006, Jack White and team made a song containing every element I love about classic rock. Initially this song was a skip track. I didn't appreciate how easily one could pinpoint the song's obvious influences (most noticeable is Led Zeppelin). But after a few listens, you realize that it isn't wrong of them to borrow from the best. It's simply reproducing that which we (20 somethings) wish we could experience. 7. Ratatat WildcatIt seems simple and nearly calculated but it's so fresh and clever. Maybe it's the calculated simplicity that is what makes it seem also fresh and clever. AND this would for sure be the theme song for my embarrassingly weak, more adorable/geeky than threatening, white-boy gang. 6. Grizzl[...]

On a sweltering Friday evening in June, Barry Hyde of UK quartet, The Futureheads, kindly invited me into the band's well-equipped (and air conditioned) tour bus to escape, well, the summer and the throngs encircling Dallas' Gypsy Tearoom.
"How can you possibly stand this heat?" he asked as we sat down.
"I can't," I remarked.
When we sat down, Hyde, the Futureheads' frontman and chief songwriter, cut right to the chase and thoughtfully unraveled the executional and philosophical approaches to the songs and harmonies on their just-released News and Tributes LP, exhaustively contrasting their latest effort with their critically-acclaimed eponymous debut.
Assessing the Futureheads' rise -- and his scorn for their former label, Warner Brothers -- Hyde generously shed light on the inner-workings of a band that began, as he will admit, with few and simple expectations.
If there ever was any uncertainty about their rise, Hyde et al affirmed his confidence, and the audience's high expectations, pushing the limits, lengths, and structures of their crafty cache of songs for almost two hours. It was an impressive set and, for your host, at least, the show dutifully proved why the Futureheads have garnered such praise from a growing network of famous friends, influential publications, bloggers, hipsters, and the rest.

Thu, 20 Jul 2006 22:42:00 +0000Over the last two years, The Long Winters have quickly become one of my all-time favorite groups. The pop songs have crisp and precise production paired with articulate and emotionally insightful lyrics. If possible, I could sit for hours talking with frontman John Roderick about his songs and the ingredients that make these records truly incredible. Through a series of e-mail exchanges, Roderick has answered some highly specific questions concerning lyrics off the new record. Putting the Days to Bed will be released July 25th on Barsuk Records.I have placed the lyrics in the order they appear on the record. Enjoy. Track 1: "Pushover" - "Unkind girlish walk, like a deed to the world without the talk" JR: Well... you know there are some coquettish walks, some flabbergastingly captivating gaits, which cross the line. They aren't innocent, they're wielded like a flaming sword, and they have the power to own a man for a period. That doesn't mean they're a force for good in the world.(MP3)Track 3: "Teaspoon" - "You weighed your suitcase down, but it still wouldn't sink" JR: This happens to all of us at one point or another. We have a small suitcase worth of stuff, thoughts, feelings, recent events, that we would give anything to just sink to the bottom of the sea, but it's always that suitcase that refuses to go down. You can't just leave it floating there, so you have to take the damn thing home again.Track 4: "Hindsight" - "I'm baling water and baling water 'cause I like the shape of the boat" JR: I'm afraid that this lyric is already perfectly self-explanitory. When I say it's self-explanatory I'm not trying to be difficult, it's just to me nothing could be clearer than a lyric like that. It's a lyric about the small-scale, almost charming, tendency we all have toward self-destruction. If we weren't humans, if we were able to judge like computers or Vulcans, the only logical criteria for a BOAT would be that it floats without leaking. How it looks couldn't be less relevant to how it functions. Our humanity is revealed by our love for lost causes, for three-legged dogs and rusted-out "classic" cars, and there's something pathetic about us for that reason. The same eye that loves art and music will plunge us into buying a house with a cracked foundation, while a perfectly solid, and cheaper, house next door is rejected for being not as "cute". I celebrate this quality in people; it's what makes us interesting, and lovable, and individual, even if it means that we're doomed, somewhat. Why be in a relationship with someone? For love, comfort, support and encouragement. How many of us are in relationships that provide none of those things, but which we fight for against all odds?Track 5: "The Sky Is Open" - "My propeller tries to find the air" JR: Overtly, this is meant literally: the pilot is so high up and the air is so thin that his propellor is cleaving into the ragged edge of a vacuum. Indirectly it refers to the propellor in each of us which is always chewing up the air, taking us higher, hungry for sky.Track 7: "Clouds" - "False prophesy doesn't mean prophesies are true" JR: I'm continually amazed at how easy it is for people to recognize and laugh at the preposterous aspects of every religion but their own.Track 8: "Rich Wife" - "So tell me, is your high horse getting a little hard to ride -- and your little bit on the side getting harder to find" JR: You can be a snotty little brat all you want when you're twenty-five, but the day you turn twenty-seven you start to notice your friends don't think it's so cute anymore.Track 9: "Ultimatum" - "Crave translates into slave, No-one can harness the rain, And I can make myself into rain,You feel me on your cheek, And on your sleeve" JR: When you're in love it's very easy to start ascribing supernatural[...]

Before his recent Dallas show, I had the chance to pull Red aside for an expansive interview and an impromptu recording session, which resulted in two single-mic performances of some of his most beloved songs, "Red Sun" from Peter and the Wolf and Adventure from MTV2's Wonder Showzen.
Red Hunter isn't like most musicians I've talked with over the last year. Maybe that's because he's so willing to ponder, detail, even perform, his many diverse interests. He will tell you about playing shows in graveyards and dressing up like a Vet for a case study in audience reaction. He will tell you about jokingly suggesting he and a peer tour in a sailboat. He will cite Chomsky and address the perils of media propaganda and, in a twist, tie it all -- and convincingly so -- to independent music. He will offer perspectives, ideas, and insights that only hint at why he's one of the more compelling figures in underground music

Kyp Malone describes the Return of Cookie Mountain song Province:
Abridged transcriptionSoundbed music is "Walking The Cow", a Daniel Johnston cover from The Late Great Daniel Johnston, available for purchase here.
"We were playing festivals and recording in hotel bathrooms. ... I wanted to write something positive and uplifting. Watching and taking in all this dark bullshit that's happening in our world all the time. ... We were walking down the street and I saw graffiti on the side of this building. Someone had quoted Gandhi. They wrote 'Love is the prerogative of the brave.'"

"I haven't been to Cairo. I haven't been to Lagos. I haven't played in Mexico City."
How did the recording with Bowie come about?
"And we dropped of the roughs of the record as we were working on it. And he dug 'em."
About the album leak, Crooked Rain Crooked Rain and a "change in psychology"

Last Sunday, a few friends of mine and I spent the day relaxing -- drinking some margaritas at Lee Harvey's, learning to dj from DJ Pedro himself and topped off the rare beautiful breezy Texas day with an amazing TV on the Radio show at Gypsy Tearoom.
I had never seen this band live before. I've heard stories of the "experience" or "the best live show" and read the quote in the most recent Filter where the band themselves say you might not understand the performance. I told Adam after the show, "I rarely think this when I leave a show, but HOW do they do this night after night?" The energy released through the vocals (and arm movements) of Tunde Adebimpe is intense. The band unites and the cohesive sounds on record are equally powerful live.
After the show, Adam and I had the chance to talked with Kyp and Tunde of TVOTR. We quickly walked into the empty Ballroom and recorded for less than 10 minutes total.
Here's segment 1 from Kyp Malone; he tells his love for a Narnack Records band, whose music is "honest and organic and not a put- on and not some fake hippie shit." He also talks about a new record and DVD that he feels insired by.

Band/Artist: Ramesh Srivastava (Voxtrot)
Date: April 21th, 2006
Venue: 95 Corolla Studios
Location: Denton, TX
Taped by: Garrison R.
Transferred by: Garrison R.
1. Shayla (Blondie Cover)
After interviewing the band in January and seeing their performances in Dallas and in Austin at SXSW, I stayed in touch. As they entered Denton on this past Friday (after a day of uncertainty caused by van problems), we were discussing a follow-up interview and also a possible song request for that night's concert at Hailey's. I had suggested "Union City Blue" since it's one of my favorite songs off Eat to the Beat. It was a song Ramesh was familiar with but not possible for the entire band.
We met up at the show, talked and he realized the song I was thinking wasn't the same song he was. The song he was thinking was "Shalya" -- another amazing track from Eat to the Beat. We went to my car and listened to the song a few times through. Ramesh went looking for an acoustic guitar. I returned into the venue. Within minutes, he said he had found one. I said "where were you thinking we'd record?", and he replied "there's probably enough room in your car." I had no complaints and we went to the quietest place to record -- 95 Corolla Studios as it will forever be called.
This is the output.

"My name is Sam Sanford and I'm in SOUND team. I guess if any of us could ask questions, we would probably want to get Brian Eno and ask him a lot of technical questions about specific songs and specific sounds on specific songs. How did you make this sound? Like for example on the song "Sky Saw" the first song on Another Green World, how did you make the sky saw sound?"Full IndieInterviews Interview with SOUND team's Bill Baird from early August 2005
Thu, 13 Apr 2006 19:46:00 +0000Thursday: Explains 'Your Eyes Are Liars'
"My name is Sam Sanford and I'm in SOUND team. 'Your Eyes Are Liars' is a song that started out as a recording that Bill made by himself in our studio, Big Orange. It underwent a lot of transformations during the process of arranging it for live performance. It was rerecorded to reflect those changes in the arrangement and the song you'll hear on the record is that. It's a recording of the live arrangement that we worked out based on the original recording. Which actually came out on a cassette we put out two years ago called Every Day Is A New Year."

"My name is Sam Sanford and I'm in SOUND team. My favorite city to play in Austin, I guess I have to say, because the fans are great there and the clubs are great there. Other than Austin, my favorite city to play in is New York. New York City is great. People go out every night."Full IndieInterviews Interview with SOUND team's Bill Baird from early August 2005

"My name is Sam Sanford and I'm in SOUND team. The new record I'm into is the new TV on the Radio record. Even though I haven't heard it yet, I expect great things. I think their first record was one of the most amazing things to come out in the last ten years and I hear the new one is even better. I'm really excited about them."Full IndieInterviews Interview with SOUND team's Bill Baird from early August 2005

"My name is Sam Sanford and I'm in SOUND team. My friend's band is Science. Science [now Gulf of Mexico] is Joey Kaoehl, Gregory Tenenbeown, Bill Baird, and "Matty", Matthew. And they are a great band from Austin, Texas. Not like anything you've ever heard before."

It's true. I did go to The Elephant Show AKA Sharon, Lois and Bram in concert. I did "scam" Metallica. I do love (I cringe as I write this) world music. I don't have nearly enough records. I am a bad Texan because I don't have boots, I don't eat meat and didn't see At The Drive-In when I had the chance.

"Hi. This is Lenka from Decoder Ring. If I could ask any musician a question, it would be Bjork. And I think I just want to know why we can't just make a baby together? But I don't think I'd have the guts to ask it 'cause she'd probably slap me."
IndieInterviews: "And she's married and has babies, right?"
"I know. And I'm a girl so we can't have babies together but, you know, I just love her."
Thu, 06 Apr 2006 12:00:00 +0000Thursday: Explains 'Somersault'
"Hi. This is Lenka from Decoder Ring. "Somersault" is the theme song to the movie Somersault. And it's the reason why I joined up with Decoder Ring because they were an instrumental band before and they decided they needed female vocals for a song or two on the album. And it's about, I co-write the lyrics with the director of the film, and it's about the idea. It's kind of a truth idea about love. In that, if you can breathe in a person's air and their breath into you, you've got a little piece of them forever. In this girl's sentimental memory of the boy that's what she holds on to.
The movie is coming out in April in the States and the soundtrack Somersault is coming out in May. This film, it's an art house film, but it was a really successful film in Australia. The film and the album both won heaps of awards. It's was kind of a buzz film a couple of years ago. So, it will probably get an art house release over here, but you should look out for it because it's a gorgeous film"

Thu, 06 Apr 2006 01:38:00 +0000Wednesday: My favorite city to play in is
"Hi. This is Lenka from Decoder Ring. My favorite city to play in is New York, of course. Because, I'm here right now and it's just been quite mind-blowing. And it's great to just be here, for a reason, to do gigs. And the gigs that we've done have been amazing and we've had lots of fans in the audience. It's the coolest city in the world. What more can you say?"
IndieInterviews: "You like playing there more than in Australia?"
"Well, playing in Australia it's a different thing because everyone knows our songs. And they kinda get really excited when they hear them and everyone dances. And also, we play to big festivals like 5,000 kids in the audience (often it's kids) having a great time. Sometimes it's in the day and it's a very different atmosphere. But I'm way more excited about New York right now because it's where I am and it's different, you know?"
Tue, 04 Apr 2006 05:17:00 +0000Tuesday: The new record I'm into is
"Hi. This is Lenka from Decoder Ring. The new record I'm into is Cat Power - The Greatest. I have a lot of her albums and I really love her. Being on tour at the moment, I've been listening to it a lot because it's extremely soulful. It's really nice to come home after a crazy night and just, sort of, be nourished."

And I'm actually right now having red wine with her. But, well, not right now. She's not sitting right next to me. She's in the bar. I'm in the foyer. Anyways. I love her because she's mad, spontaneous and wonderful. And the album is just gorgeous."

We are opening our metaphorical doors to involve whomever wants to be involved. The new feature is titled "IndieInterviews Insider".
The program will establish a mailing list for two-way communication between IndieInterviews and our listeners. An IndieInterviews Insider will have privileged information on upcoming interviews and the ability to submit questions via the mailing list. It will also show questions that have been accepted throughout the process: from booking to conducting. If your question is used, you will be mentioned on the site and if applicable, your blog will be linked. Podcast posts are also attached to all files available on respective iTunes episodes. Of course, not all questions will be accepted and we will try to set to it that the interviews have a good balance of Insider questions and those developed by IndieInterviews.com.
It will allow the participants to assist in the interview development. Basically, it would just invite others to feel heard and involved.

If time and effort are equal to blood and tears, Revolutionary Modern Heart (tentative spring release - SubPop) will be both bloody and tearsoaked. Bosque Brown (Denton/Stephenville)National touring acts rarely take note of their local counterparts, Bosque Brown not only amazed Damien Jurado but has been asked for as tour support by many others (Two Gallants and John Vanderslice). Her gothic sound resonates venues and leaves audiences wanting more. See this band live and you'll agree. Jana Hunter (Austin)After an amazing year, including a split with freak-folker Devendra Banhart and tour dates with like-minded Castanets and Deerhoof, 2006 should be an even stronger year for Jana Hunter. Her late 2005 release, Blank Unstaring Heirs of Doom, is gaining audience interest and press attention. IndieInterviews thinks she might be the reincarnation of Nico. I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness (Austin)After three years recording and scrapping sessions, Chosen Darkness signed to Secretly Canadian and have finalized their debut LP, Fear Is On Our Side, due March 7, 2006. Using a studio shared with Austinites ...Trail of Dead, the band has developed a sound expanding from their popular 2003 self-titled EP (or as their press release writes "[on the new release,] ILYBICD breaks out of any genre-specific molds"). **NEW MP3 - According To Plan** Knife in the Water (Austin)Since impressing many with their 2003's Cut The Cord, Knife in the Water has been touring extensively and recently have been working in south Austin on their upcoming record Viet Kieu. The band's country-fused psychedelia has garnered them foreign and a growing domestic attention. Heavy touring is expected in Texas and their home away from home, Europe. Midlake (Denton)Expanding on the European successes of fellow Denton artists, 5-piece Midlake signed to English label Bella Union and released 2004's Bamnan and Slivercork. After a brief tour with Rilo Kiley, Midlake spent most of 2005 working diligently on their sophomore release Van Occupanther. Pilotdrift (Texarkana)The band's recent release Water Sphere, a Good Records release, has got them much local press and excellent local bills. They will join fellow Good Records labelmates, Polyphonic Spree, at the band's annual winter show. If the band's successes continue to leave the DFW area, who knows what well happen. The band will have their chance for this as they nationally support Supergras[...]

Sat, 17 Dec 2005 09:31:00 +0000According to a filmed welcome from Tim DeLaughter shown before the rock portion of The Polyphonic Spree's 6th Annual Holiday Extravaganza, the Spree's next record will officially be titled The Fragile Army. A release date is unknown but the band has been working in Dallas with the ultratalented producer John Congleton (also of The Paperchase).
I think The Spree is all about fragility - as big and happy as they can sound, they are sort of 'The Fragile Army' to me. I am very lucky I got to meet all these people and that they helped me so much as a person and as a filmmaker - It makes life seem really exciting.Mills might have known the title at the time or based on his quote, DeLaughter and band confirmed this title.

Mon, 05 Dec 2005 11:30:00 +000010Andrew Bird & The Mysterious Production of Eggs MP3: A Nervous Tic... | NPR Story Lyrically, one of the most impressive records I have ever heard. Bird's allusions and metaphors have scattered this record with gems of literary and auditory beauty. His layering of whistles, raw electric guitar and his technical violin parts work into one of the year's most unique and skilled releases. These songs all start by escalating in way that you've swallowed the lure whole before you know otherwise. & The Mysterious Production of Eggs leads you on an irresistible journey of Thai butterflies, calcium, GPS, monsters and more. 9Bloc Party Silent Alarm MP3: Banquet | Full D.C. Concert (NPR) The promotion for this record was so ambitious it was nearly a turn off. The quote from Uncut or NME referred to the record, as early as February, as one of the year's best records. From the first notes of "Like Eating Glass", the energy of the record is overwhelming. The record's less successful tracks are surrounded by single suited songs. The consistent layers of guitars and vocals makes listening to the record soothing and yet energizing. 8Rogue Wave Descended Like Vultures MP3: Publish My Love | 10:1 After loving Out Of The Shadows over the last two years, I had massive expectations for the band and the record. The 10:1 EP worked to wet the appetite. "10:1" is one of Rogue Wave's strongest songs: the recording zips, squeals and creaks established a ripened character for the band's sophomore attempt. The charm of [...]

Mon, 17 Oct 2005 12:00:00 +0000Sound Team is yet another amazing Austin band on the verge of massive success. Two-thirds of the band's six members attended the same high school in San Antonio, TX. There they played and recorded music with a variety of groups. Sooner or later, the band grew and developed into the current lineup present today.Bassist/multi-instrumentalist Bill Baird and vocalist/guitarist Matt Oliver met in Austin in 2001. The band has a young fanbase, being as in 2002, Baird asked his younger brother Michael and Michael’s friend Jordan Johns to join the band. Both of the guys were in high school at the time. Over the next two years the band added Bill's old friend and guitarist Sam Sanford and organist Gabe Pearlman to establish the Sound Team present on their new record "Work".The independent group released their initial recordings on CD-Rs, limited press 7-inch vinyls, several cassettes, with each release and show garnering gradual audience and press attention. After months of searching, Bill stumbled upon former record-pressing plant filled with "three tons of garbage, asbestos and cockroaches." After finding the location, the band invested and became the owners of Big Orange Records and soon began making handmade records. Sound Team's next record, Work is the band's last self-released release prior to their debut record on Capitol in spring of 2006. On Work, a 5 track EP released, 185-gram vinyl and, like habit, cassette tape, the band continues its style of synth and guitar waves and rhythmic evolutions.The band has had sporadic touring schedules(last playing hometown Austin at SXSW) and has been in the studio for months. They are doing a two week tour up to NYC where they played CMJ's Summerstage with Arcade Fire. This tour will be with Mazarin.11/10/05 - Baton Rouge, LA @ Red Star11/11/05 - Houston, TX @ TBA11/12/05 - Austin, TX @ Emo's (Inside)11/13/05 - Dallas, TX @ Gypsy Tea Room11/14/05 - Norman, OK @ Opolis11/16/05 - Minneapolis, MN @ 400 Bar11/17/05 - Chicago, IL @ Empty Bottle11/19/05 - Cleveland, OH @ Beachland11/22/05 - New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge11/23/05 - Philadelphia, PA @ NorthstarTheir latest release has the image designed by Sam Sanford.

Fri, 07 Oct 2005 23:10:00 +0000Often when you get a new record, comparisons immediately hit. Other times, you are mesmerized and it takes days to set bearings for the sound. Bosque Brown: an innocence coupled with troubled thoughts and fears. Bosque Brown is the moniker Mara Lee Miller uses. Her debut record, Plays Mara Lee Miller, is a collage of haunting songs which reflect a time far from today.Most new female indie vocalists get compared to Cat Power's Chan Marshall and/or Joni Mitchell. But for Miller to get that would be truly an injustice. Her lyrics and tone are far before Chan herself. This is the music that Gillian Welch would love. Those that tell stories of the rapture and times of old. Miller's friend and supporter Damien Jurado compared her "the heartache of Kitty Wells and the lonesome howl of Robert Johnson", which might be most accurate. Upon first listen, one realizes how long it's been since a voice has had such impact.After playing dates with Jurado, Miller and crew went to record with producer Eric Fisher in Seattle. Fisher has worked with Jurado, Damien's friend and touring band member J. Tillman. Tillman's records also share this ghost fashion Bosque Brown has presented on this record. Based in Denton, the band has a few dates in the Dallas area in upcoming weeks:10/21/05 - Richardson, TX @ University of Texas - Dallas, Student Union Mall w/Shiny Around the Edges & More10/28/05 - Denton, TX @ Hailey's w/ John Vanderslice11/07/05 - Dallas, TX @ The Cavern w/ Unwed SailorBosque Brown's Mara Lee Miller is currently working on a one-sided LP which will have four new songs and an etching on the other side.Bosque Brown - Still AfraidBosque Brown - Went Walking[...]
Thu, 06 Oct 2005 04:49:00 +0000Though SubPop's RSS feed noted October 5th as the date the Fruit Bats would perform on the Last Call with Carson Daly show, something was wrong.
Wed, 05 Oct 2005 12:00:00 +0000We're less than two weeks out from the worldwide release of The Black Angels self-titled debut EP. The Austin-based six piece has had massive European exposure and acclaim in little over a year and half. Though the band takes their name from a Velvet Underground track, they sound much like a modern-day The Doors. The extending moans of vocalist Alex Mass and the organ playing of Jennifer Raines make the comparison fair. With a demo track entitled "Syd Barrett Blues", it's really clear to see the psychedelic connections the band has received.The band played Austin's KVRX radio last year broadening their local fanbase. In addition, The Black Angels have been raised under the loving hand of BBC's Zane Lowe, who has generously spinned their music on BBC Radio. The group has wild backgrounds which surely worked as foundation for the haunting sounds on record. The band has a few dates coming up with the most buzzed band of 2005, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!10/12/05 - Dallas, TX @ Gypsy Tea Room w/ CYHSY!10/13/05 - Dallas, TX @ The Double-Wide10/16/05 - San Antonio, TX @ Sanctuary10/17/05 - Nashville, TN @ The Basement10/18/05 - Wash, DC @ Black Cat w/ CYHSY!10/19/05 - Baltimore, MD @ 8x10 Club w/ CYHSY!10/27/05 - Athen, GA @ Caledonia Lounge w/ The High Caliber10/31/05 - Raleigh, NC @ King's Barcade w/ GlissadeAnd More...Seattle-based Light In The Attic will release the band's first record, a 4 song EP, worldwide (except North America) October 17th and then stateside the following day.

(image) The latter is a solid three-piece who've toured with groups like My Morning Jacket & Kings of Leon. Guitar, bass, and drums are the band's simple palate. The band calls Chicago home but take their name from the Missouri trailer park guitarist and vocalist George Hunter was raised.
Sun, 02 Oct 2005 12:00:00 +0000Band of Horses have just finalized the record due in March 2006 on SubPop. They have had great reception from Southern audiences.

This record is an amazing fusion of chaos and melodies or "showcases the ultimate potential of this electronic/acoustic union." (image)
