Sorry for the inactivity folks. I’ve been keeping busy on the road and with other recording projects in recent months. I wanted to share with you the link for my recent session at Audio Tree in Chicago! I’ll be back with more music soon and thanks for staying with me! 🙂
Last night Penicillin Baby took the stage for the final round round of Road to Bonnaroo at High Watt. Although, we may not be heading to Bonnaroo soon, here is a new video for “Stick It Out” that premiered on FLOOD Magazine today. Scope it and see if you can figure out, “Who is Tape Face?”
I’ve been getting stoked to see Deerhoof for the first time tomorrow so I wanted to share with you guys a pretty outlandish video they premiered on Mashable and Stereogum on the 12th of March. “Tiny Bubbles” was directed by Geoffrey Hoskinson. Scope the out of body experience for yourself below and if your in Nashville tomorrow the 24th do yourself a favor and catch their live show at Mercy Lounge.
En route to Athens, GA to play Caledonia Lounge with Penicillin Baby, I was informed that Thee Oh Sees released a new track titled “Web” from their upcoming album Mutilator Defeated at Last. This is my first post from my phone, so bare with me! Yes, I’m behind in the technology realm, I know. Below is the album art and click on it to link to Pitchfork’s stream of the new track.
My band Penicillin Baby debuted a new single, “Stick It Out” on Culture Collide. I wanted to share the link with you guys as well as the preview of the album cover. Click on the picture to get re-directed to the single and write up!
After spending some significant time with this record, I can proudly say it was one of my favorite records of 2014. Having no idea that Deerhoof was actually coming out with a new record I stumbled upon La Isla Bonita, (The Beautiful Island) while looking for a copy of Offend Maggie on vinyl which I am of course still trying to get my hands on.
Finding almost any Deerhoof record is a challenge so I grabbed this one while it was fresh. Ever since, it has been next to impossible to step away from it. With pop and experimental elements, this albums mix is nearly perfect. Greg Saunier supplies thick grooves to keep it all together and bring continuity to the chaos. Of course, anyone that can successfully pull off 16 inch hi hats has got a sound that is going to go untouched for a bit. Creative, complex yet somehow simple, and over the top. Not a week has gone by without me listening to it at least once since it’s purchase. Do yourself a favor and catch them on their current tour!
