with Iron Reagan, Oathbreaker, All Hell
Since signing with Prosthetic seven years ago, a new SKELETONWITCH album has materialized like clockwork every other October. First, there was the group's sophomore breakthrough, "Beyond The Permafrost." Produced by late GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot and featuring iconic artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak), the album and subsequent tours with the likes of Danzig, Dimmu Borgir and Amon Amarth told the world what the rest of Ohio already knew: that SKELETONWITCH was a metal force to be reckoned with. That album's "Soul Thrashing Black Sorcery" would eventually be featured in the video game "Brutal Legend," placing the band in excellent company with digitized versions of Rob Halford, Ozzy and Lemmy.Then came 2009s "Breathing The Fire," produced by the legendary Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, 3 Inches of Blood). Supported by tours with Cannibal Corpse, Children of Bodom and Ozzfest, the album the band's first featuring bassist Evan Linger, and also their first to crack the Billboard Top 200 caught the attention of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, who invited the group to film a zombie-themed video for the song "Bringers of Death" that the band members still haven't stopped hearing about.In 2011, "Forever Abomination" produced by Grammy-winner Matt Hyde (Slayer, Deftones) saw the arrival of drummer Dustin Boltjes (ex-Demiricous), as well as a return visit to the Billboard Top 200. On the road, the group toured alongside Arch Enemy, Kvelertak, The Black Dahlia Murder and Nile before embarking on their most ambitious trek to date: a 63-shows-in-65-days test of endurance that they passed with flying colors.2013 brings us to "Serpents Unleashed," the group's fifth and latest release. Recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Isis) in Salem, Mass. (insert bad "witch" joke here), the album which features artwork by Baizley, who returns to the fold for the first time in six years is another blistering helping of two-and-a-half minute blasts of blackened metal amalgamation. This time around, the band also shows off a few new tricks note the Scandinavian doom-vibe in the opening of "Unending, Everliving" and the devil's swing of "This Evil Embrace" but does so without compromising the frosty/fiery/abominable metal spirit or blue-collar humility that has endeared them to so many over the past decade. Ultimately, it's both a fitting testament to what they've accomplished to date, and an exciting nod toward what the future has in store.As for that future, in 2020, when pedal-steel rasta-metal will be all the rage, there will be SKELETONWITCH, still doing what they and, most importantly, their fans love, trends be damned.

If, as Kinky Friedman once said, an artist is a man whos ahead of his time and behind on his rent, then consider Wheeler Walker, Jr. the Michelangelo of country music. Now, of course Im biased, being a dear friend of the mans for going on damn near thirty years now. But keep in mind: Im an official Colonel of the Great State of Kentucky. They dont hand that shit out to just anybody. You cant begin to talk about Wheeler without first talking about the Bluegrass State.We aint talkin bout the Ashley Judd, Rosemary Clooney, Billy Ray Cyrus version of Kentucky. Wheeler comes from that special Kentucky dirt, the dirt that brought us Hunter S. Thompson, Loretta Lynn, the Everly Brothers & Johnny Depp (Just his good movies of course. Not that lame Pirates dogshit.) I still remember the first time I laid eyes on young Wheels (as he was known back then). A local talent contest in nineteen-eighty something. The kid had a gift.Singin those Hank Jr. and George Strait songs better than the originals. He didnt win that day, on account o him changing the lyrics of All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight to All My Rowdy Friends Will Blow Each Other Tonight. But a friendship was sealed, and in some ways, the Wheeler I met that day hasnt changed a lick: Pissin people off, cant win for losin but making sure nobody who saw him would ever forget the name Wheeler Walker, Jr. So it came as no surprise to me (or his lovely, supportive parents) that when I went off to the University of Kentucky, Wheeler decided to skip the whole college thing and instead boarded a bus to Nashville. (I graduated with an English degree. Most Colonels do. Diction is the forte of all Kentucky Colonels, and an integral part of what makes us who we are.)Wheeler got his first breaks early. Famed country A&R man Ronnie Phillips heard him playing at the Bluebird Caf and signed him to Capitol Nashville. He was partying with the new young bloods in town: Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban. I remember envying his life in those days: Stayin up late, drinkin beer, smokin grass, knee deep in that sweet Tennessee muff. Wheeler had it all. Unfortunately Wheeler could never quite get along with the man. Wheeler doesnt like being told what to do. Never has. Thats what his heroes Waylon, Willie, Johnny and Hank taught him.After refusing to censor his songs, Capitol dropped him. (Wheeler being Wheeler, he broke into the studio to steal back his master tapes but those studios are dark at night, and he ended up stealing some shitty Lee Greenwood album instead. Ive still got a framed portrait of the both of us pissing on it while it burned.)It was the same scenario with RCA, Giant, Arista and so on and so forth. The stories became the stuff of Nashville legend: Wheeler signs record deal, Wheeler raises all kinds o hell, Wheeler threatens to murder the CEO, Wheeler fucks the CEOs wife and the cycle repeats itself. Country musics most talented artist, and not even a damn single to show for it.And listen, even Ill admit its a hell of a story. But it took the focus away from the music. And thats a damn shame. Because for all the folklore that surrounded him, everyone knew Wheeler was the best singer-songwriter in Music City. Its just that the rest of the world didnt. Because there was no way for them to hear him.Until now.Yes, I know that Wheelers debut album is already being called the filthiest country album in history. But to merely label it as that would be a crime. Its one of the finest country albums ever put to wax (or files, or whatever). Eleven songs of the most ass-kicking, moving and heartfelt real country youll ever hear. Produced by the great Dave Cobb (whos produced Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson & Wheelers old pal Sturgill Simpson) and backed up by a crack band of Nashvilles finest players, this is what country music is supposed to be.Or why not just take it from Wheeler himself, on account of the fact that hes sitting across from me, yelling at me to get this shit done so we can hit the town and raise some hell: Booker, this aint a fuckin joke. This is real music. Real songs. Its about something. Sure, I talk about clits and farts and shit, but its only because I can finally say what the fuck I want, without some old fuckin shithead tellin me I gotta tone it down. This album just gushed outta me like a jerk youve been holdin in for five days.So, what happens if the album doesnt sell? Wheeler paid for it himself (distributing it through the fine folks at Thirty Tigers). And even hell admit, its all the money hes got left. If the album dont work, fuck em. Not a big deal. Ill just move back to my parents old place in Kentucky. Be one of those drunk Kentucky shut-ins. You know what they say about playin guitars and orgasms: you can do em both by yourself.

New Kingston + SensaMotion New Mountain Theater Wednesday, September 28 // Ages 21+ // $10 Advance RSVP to the Facebook event! New Kingston brings the KINGSTON FYAH tour to New Mountain Asheville with SensaMotion on Wednesday, September 28th. :: New Kingston ::NEW KINGSTON formed in 2006 in the basement of their Brooklyn home, when brothers Tahir (keys), Courtney Jr. (drums) & Stephen (guitar) began covering music by the likes of Bob Marley, Earth Wind & Fire, Dennis Brown, Michael Jackson, The Whispers and many more. The three brothers, under the watchful eye of their father (and bassist) Courtney Panton Sr., called themselves New Kingston to appropriately reflect a combination of their Jamaican heritage and their present lives in progressive New York City. The musical styles of both places informed their sound and songwriting. "We used to come home from school and we'd be marched right down to the music room by our dad," said Stephen. They began performing in other basements and small backyard parties around town, all the while developing their skills and beginning to write their own original music. Talent rises to the top, and soon enough New Kingston started a heavy touring cycle supporting reggae stars such as Rebelution, The Green, SOJA, Matisyahu, Beres Hammond and Collie Buddz, while also securing spots on notable festivals such as the California Roots Festival, Reggae On The River, Summer Jam (Germany), and Uppsala Reggae Festival (Sweden), to name a few. For a while, they joined Collie Buddz to tour as his backing band, which exposed them to international audiences, while continuing their education on what it takes to make a great live show. It also helped them realize they had tons of their own original material and they quickly moved from that role to being a headliner on their own. The band's background and upbringing are reflected in their approach to the industry, as well: they are truly a U.S. reggae band, part of the movement that has revitalized and evolved the genre domestically, with a focus on digital marketing, heavy national touring, and never sticking to a stale formula for what reggae should sound like. As second generation Jamaican-Americans, they are able to just as easily hold their own with the traditional reggae scene. New Kingston self-released two full-length albums: In The Streets (2010) and Kingston University (2013). The band recently announced the signing to New York-based reggae label Easy Star Records and will release their third studio album Kingston City on January 27, 2015. The record features collaborations with Tribal Seeds, Kimie Miner, France's Dub Inc., Sister Carol, The Wailing Souls, and the late, great father of dancehall, Sugar Minott. If that guest list doesn't give you a snapshot of the combination of the old world and new horizons that New Kingston is all about, nothing will.:: SensaMotion ::New roots reggae and dubfire rock for the motion of your soul. Hailing from Atlantic City, NJ Sensamotion is known for their unique style, captivating a audience across the nation. They have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in reggae music such as The Wailers, Matisyahu, Israel Vibration, Tribal Seeds, Collie Buddz, The Green, Easy Star All Stars, Barrington Levy, Stick Figure, Ky-Mani Marley, Fortunate Youth and more.. They've also performed as the backing band for Kevin Kinsella performing classic John Brown's Body, and 10ft Ganja Plant tunes. Inspired by bands such as Groundation, Midnite, and John Brown's Body they are looking to bring something new to the table. Their EP 'Looking Up' is out and available now. With a newly added horn section (trumpet and saxophone) Sensamotion is currently evolving their sound and working hard on new music. They plan to bring you their first full length album in the near future. Stay tuned!

The Felice Brothers | Life In The Dark, "Aerosol Ball" The Felice Brothers - Frankie's Gun The Felice Brothers - "Plunder" - Life In The Dark
https://open.spotify.com/embed/user/ryan.marian/playlist/1JvOubG7kNjFbBOmFtI9KtThe Felice Brothers' new album Life in the Dark, due June 24 on Yep Roc, is classic American music. At once plainspoken and deeply literate, the band's latest features nine new songs that capture the hopes and fears, the yearning and resignation, of a rootless, restless nation at a time of change.

Life in the Dark also coincides with The Felice Brothers' 10th anniversary as a band. Hailed by the AV Club for a sound at once "timeless, yet tossed-off," they've released plenty of music over the past decade, often on their own without a record label, but the new album is the fullest realization yet of the band's DIY tendencies. Self-produced by the musicians and engineered by James Felice (who also contributed accordion, keyboards and vocals), the Felice Brothers made Life in the Dark themselves in a garage on a farm in upstate New York, observed only by audience of poultry.

"The recording is definitely rough around the edges and cheap," James Felice says, laughing. "It was liberating and really cool to do. It allowed us to untether ourselves from anything and just make music."

Because of makeshift studio set-up, the music they made was necessarily stripped down, emphasizing acoustic instruments and spacious arrangements on songs that showcase the sound of a band playing together live, with echoes in the music of Woody Guthrie, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine and rural blues.

"We tried to make it as simple and folk-based as possible, because we were working with limited resources," singer and guitarist Ian Felice says. "We wanted to take all the frills out and make it just meat and potatoes."

Still, there are hints of seasoning: among the folk and blues touchstones, the band took a certain inspiration from Neil Young and the Meat Puppets, too. Ian Felice says he was trying to channel the spirit of Meat Puppets II on opener "Aerosol Ball" — "They played kind of weird, freaky folk music, so there's a connection there," he says — while James Felice says listening to Neil Young's Tonight's the Night was like getting permission to make Life in the Dark.

"If you listen to that record, it's fucking crazy," he says. "We listened to that to know that what we were doing was legal and had precedent. If Neil Young could make a record that sounds like that, we can make a record that sounds like this."

He's referring to the wild, whirling accordion and big, loose rhythm on "Aerosol Ball," mournful glimmers of electric guitar and fiddle on "Triumph '73" and the ramshackle, blues-rock feel of "Plunder," full of grainy lead guitars, blasts of organ and a shout-along chorus inspired by the rhythm of Shakespeare's "Double, double toil and trouble" incantation in Macbeth. Though The Felice Brothers often share songwriting duties, the band gravitated toward Ian Felice's songs for Life in the Dark.

Along with Shakespeare and the Meat Puppets, Ian Felice absorbed the essence of writers from Anne Sexton to Anne Frank, Raymond Carver to Dr. Seuss, on tunes with clear, if unintentional, political undertones. "It's just what was going on when I was writing the songs," Ian Felice says. "It's a pretty politically charged climate right now." To say the least.

The singer's characters on "Aerosol Ball" exist in a dystopian culture bought, and ruled, by corporations; while "Jack at the Asylum" catalogs cultural ills including climate change, economic inequality and the numbing aspects of televised warfare, themes that recur again on "Plunder." He wrote the title track after re-reading The Diary of a Young Girl, the journal that Frank kept while in hiding from the Nazis during World War II. "The idea of living in a dark attic unable to fully grasp what is going on in your life and feeling powerless to change it seemed like a relevant metaphor for me at the time," Ian Felice says.

Elsewhere, he offers his own interpretation of classic American archetypes: "Triumph '73" follows a young man on the cusp of adulthood desperate to ride his motorcycle away from the life changes overtaking him, while the ballad "Diamond Bell" tells the story of a folk heroine gunslinger in the vein of Pretty Boy Floyd or Jesse James, and the hapless, lovestruck kid she ensnares. "It's part-love song, part-adventure story, part-tragedy, told in the Mexican folk tradition of singing about bandits," Ian Felice says. "I think it's one of the most straight-ahead narratives I've written."

The band, also including Josh Rawson on bass and Greg Farley on fiddle, with drums by David Estabrook, spent about a month recording Life in the Dark in the late winter of 2015. James Felice learned engineering on the fly — "I literally had a book, like, 'Where do you put the mic? How do you mic the kick drum?'" he says — and the band managed to nail most of the tunes within a few takes.

"There wasn't too much agonizing, just the joy of playing music," James Felice says. "We had an audience of chickens, and an audience of each other, and we were just really enjoying making it."

The resulting album is more than just classic American music — it's a parable for modern America.

Gaudi's innovative approach to live performance and versatility as a producer has kept him at the forefront of his field throughout a notable and prolific career. His music is stylistically hard to pin down as he is an artist in constant evolution. His musical exploration, over the last 30 years in the industry, has however seen him foray into punk, new wave, dub and reggae, world, experimental electronica and "stuff that rocks dancefloors".. he has however got deep roots, which run like a vein throughout his music, and they are in the big basslines and spacious soundscapes of dub and the anarchic sonic potential of the world of electronic music… where anything's possible.

with Mary Lattimore
Henry James once wrote: "It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process."Julianna Barwick's art is equal parts force and beauty. Her music finds its motor in significant events in her own life, but they are abstracted into a sense of sonic wonderment, a radiance that you could say is her signature sound. That radiance has been taken to new zeniths with Nepenthe, her third full-length album, which was recorded in Reykjavk, Iceland, in the dark cold days of February.In ancient Greek literature, nepenthe was a magic drug of forgetfulness used to wipe out grief and sorrow. The title suggested itself to Julianna, who experienced a death in her own family in the middle of making the record, but it also refers to the music consoling her during the isolation she was going through on her own, in a foreign country, with a terrible internet connection during the sessions. Nepenthe's heady potion is about moving forward, finding a way through difficult times of retaining a feeling of hope."Everything I was making was visceral the record represents some serious emotional stuff," she confirms, while at the same time she raves with enormous positivity about the unique recording environment. Alex Somers (musician/producer of Sigur Rs, Jnsi, Jnsi & Alex) invited her to Iceland in the first place. For Julianna, who was blown away at a Sigur Rs show in 2002, it was a dream come true. "That was the fastest email I ever wrote: 'Yes!' Who would say no to that?" Somers produced and engineered the record and brought in local Icelandic musicians who turned out to make crucial contributions: string ensemble Amiina, guitarist Rbert Sturla Reynisson from Mm, and a choir of teenage girls.Having all these folks around marked a big and daunting new step in Julianna's musical evolution. Most of her previous work had been recorded alone in her bedroom. "There had never been any eyes or ears on the process," she says. "Now I go to Iceland and was with Alex every day. To go from being a hermit music maker to this was a great experience." Completing the picture, and turning it into a family snapshot, Julianna invited her mother formerly a member of a traveling vocal group to sing on the album too.The biggest influence on Nepenthe, though, was the unfamiliar surroundings of Iceland itself, with its vibrant music scene and stunningly alien landscapes with their lingering magic. "I had never had anyone play on any record before, so this was a 180 turn," she explains. "I also was inspired just by being there, and the gorgeousness of that place. Your eyes can't believe what they're seeing. I walked home one night and got totally lost in Reykjavk. I ended up walking alongside the ocean and it was glowing blue. It looked like it had a lamp underneath it. This is a completely different experience than recording myself in my Brooklyn bedroom."Although Julianna is currently based in Brooklyn, she mostly grew up in Missouri and Oklahoma. A taste of her childhood idyll fed into her last album, 2011's The Magic Place, which was named for a tree in whose branches she spent many delightful days. Though she denies it, the track "Adventurer of the Family" could well be applied to herself, as in 2001 she relocated to New York City to study for a degree in photography. "Coming from Oklahoma to the city, and seeing art in galleries and concerts, being surrounded by people who are passionate about the thing they do, and making it happen was inspiring my mind was blown."From an early age Julianna was exposed to the a cappella choral singing of local churches, but she feels drawn to any music that has an inner reverberation. "I can't sing on a dry mic," she insists, "I might as well have no clothes on. "My whole life I've always loved the sound of my voice in a parking garage or a stairwell, when that reverb happens." After high school she joined an operatic chorus and dabbled with the piano, clarinet and guitar, and eventually bought her first electric guitar, complete with loop pedal, in New York, which is really when it all started. She self-released her debut album, Sanguine, in 2005: a confident foray into improvised wordless vocal montage and mouth percussion. By the time her Florine EP appeared four years later, she had fully integrated a loop station into her methods, along with synthesizers and repetitive figures. While making The Magic Place in 2010, she decamped to a soundproofed empty rehearsal space where she could enjoy uninterrupted spells of experimentation with a piano and her increasingly elaborate halo-choirs.Julianna's compositions emerge out of a highly individual way of improvising with her loop station, her voice and various instruments. Like a potter raising a vase from a slowly turning wheel, she grows her melodies by layering and sculpting voice and instrument samples until she has achieved a rich harmonic vessel. "There's a total ease I feel when I'm making music," she says. "I never want it to be too left-brained. With photography I was always trying to make a perfect portrait. That's a whole other way of thinking from the way I make music."Nepenthe is intimate without being introspective. Instead it's a radiant array of light-dappled choral works, drawing a powerful sense of hope from the depths of despair. The extra musicians have rounded out her sound, emphasizing the yearning mood, the reaching towards the light. Check the teenage choir's ecstatic crooning on "Forever," or Amiina's shimmering sound clouds on the glorious second track, "The Harbinger." "Offing" and "One Half" are the perfect showcase for her seamlessly layered vocals, which circulate and settle upon one another like sheets of gauze on the breeze.Far from the secondhand emotions and digital dabblings of so many other artists, Julianna Barwick's music is the real deal: a life-affirming work of importance, interest... and sheer beauty.

Hot Buttered Rum lives for a good time, and a mindful recklessness settles in whenever these five guys step on stage. From Anchorage to Miami, the group's onstage chemistry fuels the lovefest that is a live Butter show. Rooted in the trajectory of west coast bluegrass, Hot Buttered Rum plays what has been described as California's own acoustic music.HBR's years of touring have given the band the chance to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people like Peter Rowan, Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen. Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It's a sound that is tough to describe and easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning's Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, Merlefest, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.The next step in Butter's evolution involves recording three 5-song EPs, each focusing on a part of music that Hot Buttered Rum loves and is inspired by, and each with a different producer. The first EP was recently recorded with Railroad Earth's Tim Carbone and will be released this fall. The second will be a collection of Ralph Stanley old school bluegrass standards, to be recorded in September with producer Sally Van Meter. The third will be Hot Buttered Rum's latenight throwdown music, to be recorded in November with SCI's Kyle Hollingsworth. Together, the three collections of songs will explore Butter's roots and express Butter's present passions.At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of old friends. The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.

This funkadelic trio hails from the sunny shores of Tampa, Florida and has hit the bay area with a new sound that has the masses in a daze, like a hot summer’s day.

Fans compare us to the classics such as Pink Floyd, and Jimi Hendrix, mixed with modern sounds such as Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and John Mayer, IF you can wrap your mind around that one. In addition to their wildly innovative original music, The Reality brings their same flair to cover classics such as "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover", "Three Little Birds", and "Little Wing" and modern hits like "Uptown Funk", "Suit and Tie" and "The Walk", making them perfect for your event! Available for weddings and private parties / luncheons as well as festivals and collaborated concerts. Look no further than The Reality for all your musical needs. Curious? Just click play and find out what The Reality is all about. Band Members: Dan Jones- Fueled by Cuban coffee, Florida orange juice, and medicinal herbs, you’ll catch this lead singer/songwriter/guitarist occasionally even sporting a trombone during the shows. Widely known in Ybor City (Tampa’s historic district) as the player to see for a number of reasons. His skills and knowledge of music and his instrumental prowess put him on another level of artistry completely. But beyond that, Dan’s passion for music and his clearly evident love of playing is what you really take home. The way he communicates a variety of emotions and color via sound is truly artistic and inspirational. Caleb Bone- Another rare Florida native, Caleb takes the smooth, melodic bass lines of Flea, Pino Palladino and Victor Wooten, and combines that with classic slap tones made by Les Claypool and Marcus Miller. In addition to his skills on his instrument, he is a 4 time Florida All-State singer. Making him “One of the best double-threats in the touring business” Dan stated. He also went on to say “I am truly blessed to be working with who I whole-heartedly believe are some of the best musicians in the area.” Caleb sings warm and rich harmonies with Dan’s melodies while simultaneously playing extremely intricate and innovative bass lines. Logan Charles III- Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Logan brings that Motown funk that gives the band its backbone. In a word, Logan Charles III or “LC” is awesome. In several words, this man has some serious chops on the drums, he could literally play all day. In addition to being one of Florida’s favorite drummers to dance to, LC can play very in-depth keyboard solos while keeping the drums going at the same time. “It is hard for me to process when I’m watching him do it live, I almost forget to play sometimes” Caleb stated after a late night studio session. Once you see it live, you’ll understand why. web: http://www.music4pina.com/ vid: https://www.facebook.com/Music4Pina/videos/990096164361648/

Description:
with Egyptrixx, Borys
Junior Boys have announced their return with Big Black Coat, their first album in almost five years and also the first for City Slang, who will release it on 5 February 2016. They've also shared lead single 'Big Black Coat', a decidedly wintry track that sees them embracing their love of techno while simultaneously refining their soul pop sensibilities.A strikingly energised and intuitively dynamic set of songs, Big Black Coat is shaped by what Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus have been doing in the five years since their last release. The Hamilton, Ontario duo have racked up four albums since they formed in 1999, including their 2004 debut Last Exit and 2006's So This Is Goodbye, two rapturous - and rapturously received - records that were as poignant as they were impeccably produced, and prefigured the digital R&B so beloved of many an artist in the last few years. Two albums followed, the last being It's All True in 2011.The years since then have been filled with nourishing independent pursuits. Greenspan released two solo singles and a collaborative EP on Jiaolong, the label run by his old friend and fellow Hamiltonian Dan Snaith (aka Caribou, Daphni - Greenspan also mixed several songs from Swim). Greenspan also co-wrote and co-produced Pull My Hair Back, the acclaimed 2013 album from Hamilton singer, songwriter and producer Jessy Lanza (more recently the pair remixed le1f). Meanwhile, Didemus - who's now based in Berlin - started releasing solo tracks under the name Diva and launched his own label, Obsession. This shift in both Boys' focus was crucial to the making of Big Black Coat."One of the nice things about doing the solo stuff," Greenspan explains, "and in particular the album with Jessy, because it did so well, was that I could stop thinking about Junior Boys as being the thing I do and start thinking about it as athing I do. That meant I could work on Junior Boys music with the same spirit as I did when it was new. It was hugely liberating and invigorated me, because I was doing things I felt really good and confident about. I was really happy with the last two Junior Boys albums, but if I look back on it, they were challenging records to make, in a way that this one absolutely wasn't."This renewed vigour surges through Big Black Coat. It's what carries its overall sharp mix of sounds. It's what encouraged the pair to strip their original "complicated" version of 'Love Is A Fire' down to its compellingly looped bare bones and made Greenspan experiment with vocal treatments, as he does on the idiosyncratically Auto-Tuned 'Over It'. But it's the title track that sets the album's scene. 'Big Black Coat' gradually warms and spreads light as it builds over seven minutes, nodding to Yellow Magic Orchestra ("their records are so strange," reckons Greenspan) and Plastikman as it goes. It also features a conceptually crucial percussion sound, made with a modular synth. "To my ears, it's the sound of fabric swishing," Greenspan says. "That day, I bought a coat - in fact, a big grey coat, but singing 'big black coat' worked better. And it really encapsulated everything I was thinking about when I made the album, so I wanted that as the title."The previously released 'What You Won't Do For Love' sees Junior Boys revising Bobby Caldwell's over-easy soul track from 1978, adding a subtle undercurrent of UK bass to what is only their second ever cover. Elsewhere, there's an acknowledgement of ESP's 1986 proto-house tune 'It's You', which uses an ultra-rare Synton Fnix synth ('M + P') and a ballad that reignites Greenspan's love affair with the hushed, soulful pop of Prefab Sprout, 10cc and Scritti Politti, via contemporary R&B ('Baby Don't Hurt Me'). Detroit is a strong undercurrent flowing through the record too, with nods to heavyweights Robert Hood, Dan Bell and Richie Hawtin throughout.Fusing disco and soul with the industrial pop and techno of Greenspan's formative teens is what makes Big Black Coat so distinctive and compelling. It's the sound of Junior Boys both cutting loose and reconnecting. As Greenspan sees it: "The fact that we haven't put out an album in a long time has been liberating, in that we haven't been so phenomenally successful that everyone knows who we are. With this album, a lot of people will be hearing us for the first time. There's a freedom that comes from that."

Description:

THE ALBUMThe Wanting Creature is best described as profoundly vulnerable. It takes the complications of loss, depression, and instability from Nathan Quirogas & Benjamin Verdoes personal lives and turns them into something beautiful. The band explains the album as an intuition or series of transmissions that surfaced slowly over the three years the record took to complete. It is an intricate conversation they built, deconstructed and built again. TWC revolves around the theme of desire and how it manifests in each area of our lives, even our biology.True to the form of their first album, the poetry and wordplay of the lyrics on TWC is rich, nuanced and layered. Every word is carefully chosen and there is a precise subtlety that allows the lines to continually unfold new meaning and imagery. Likewise, the sounds are refreshing and distinct. The band took their early methods of composition and pushed them into a new realm of production. This was due to the bands desire to move forward but also the spatial constraints of New York City. The arrangements are bathed in digital textures and explore entirely new sonic territory. Much like Phantogram, Liars, and other contemporary innovators, Iska Dhaaf have pushed themselves to a wider spectrum of possibilities and experimentation.THE STORY SO FARIn 2011 Nathan Quiroga (Mad Rad, Buffalo Madonna) and Benjamin Verdoes (Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band) left their respective Seattle-based projects behind and began collaboration on Iska Dhaaf. The band was quickly embraced for their engaging live shows, and for creating the sound of a full band by way of two people. Together as songwriters they have steadily explored production, instrumentation, and an ever-expanding narrative voice.After the release of their debut, Even the Sun Will Burn, they toured across North America, Western Europe, relocated to New York, and most recently wrote and performed in Paris and Berlin. Their upcoming album,The Wanting Creature, sees the duo emerging as producers, experimenters and genre-bending artists. The new songs show an ongoing devotion to lyrical depth and composition, and the album more fully utilizes their diverse musical backgrounds. Nearly five years in, they will surprise with their innovations-taking risks one would hope to see in a sophomore album.

It goes without saying, we love beer. We love beer from here, we love beer from there, we love beer from everywhere. Most of all, we love learning about beer while we enjoy it—where a beer originated, the history behind the style, the aromas and flavors to savor as we quaff one, two or a few.With the pursuit of "beerducation" in mind, we hold a monthly Monk Beer Academy class at the Downtown Thirsty Monk on the first Tuesday of every month. During each class, our Draft Quality Manager, Certified Cicerone® Jeremiah Tracy, hosts a 45 minute informative guided tasting, focused around a particular beer-related topic. The class is complimentary, all you have to pay for is your tasting flight.The next class is at 7PM on Tuesday, October 4th, and will focus on Oktoberfest! We'll be talking/tasting Festbier and Märzen, while jumping into the history of the event. Space is limited, so go ahead and reserve your seat now. You'll be able to purchase a tasting flight when you arrive.

Gunwale matches veteran Chicago saxophonist Rempis up with two of the up-and-coming stars from the next generation of Chicago improvisers. Packard is known mostly for his extensive work as a composer and percussionist within the thriving contemporary classical scene in Chicago, while Wildeman has achieved fame for his meteoric rise from novice instrumentalist to one of the busiest players in town after relocating to Chicago from the Netherlands in 2011 to immerse himself in the city's broad-shouldered music world. These two contribute noticeably fresh perspectives to this ongoing and ever-evolving local dialogue, a world of which Rempis has been a flagship member for almost two decades. As a trio, their voice carries a unique shape, combining a love for full-on blasts of energy with a sensitivity to the smallest details, resulting in music that can be a freight train one moment, and an insectoid microcosm the next. The band plans to release their first recording on Aerophonic Records in the summer of 2016, with a North American tour to follow this fall.Dave Rempis - saxophonesAlbert Wildeman - bassRyan Packard - drumsdaverempis.com

Meet Importer Charles Neal and taste some of his incredible French wines! Join us on Wednesday, October 5th any time between 5 and 7 p.m. for a free wine tasting featuring selections from one of our favorite importers. I met Charles Neal about 4 years ago in San Francisco over beers at a German restaurant in San Francisco. I was already buying a lot of his wines and they were already becoming best sellers at the store. Meeting him helped me understand why his wines were so original and unique.........he's original and unique. After college in North Carolina, he moved to London and wrote a book on the underground music of the early 1980's. Today, "Tape Delay" is considered one of the most important works on the subject out there. After that, he moved to Madrid and wrote another novel and met a girl. He followed her to France and eventually married her. Living above a restaurant in Southwestern France, he developed a love and passion for the wines and the Cognacs of the region. Fast forward to today, and Charles now lives in San Francisco and is considered one of the foremost authorities on Cognac and Armagnac (he wrote a book on those too). In addition, his portfolio of small grower/producer wines from all corners of France is outstanding. Much like the wines imported by legends like Kermit Lynch and Neal Rosenthal, Charles' wines are unique, distinctive, and reflective of the land they come from and the people who make them. Join us as we welcome Charles to Asheville for the first time and take advantage of the opportunity to taste his wines and learn about the people who make them. The Wines Save big on all of the tasting wines!
