Drug Couple + Kin Hana, Amy Klein

Drug Couple is an anti-capitalist, pro-miscegenation musical duo comprised of Bex and Miles B. A. Robinson (MBAR). The pair met in November 2015, when MBAR was producing a record for Bex’s previous band, Rosebug, at “The CRC”: the Brooklyn studio where he has recorded bands like Chairlift, MGMT, and Public Access Television.

They fell in love in with making music together. They also fell in love. Since then, they’ve been microdosing LSD, taking selfies, and recording a collection of songs about finding someone special to share the end of the world with—called Choose Your Own Apocalypse.

 

Their influences include Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., and the musical partnership of Mutt Lange and Shania Twain.

Drug Couple hopes to release this album before the impending armageddon

Contrary to popular indie-rock opinion, the past can be squared away, registered for deconstruction, and demolished. Yet here is music: the distortion of time. Drawing Boards, of Queens, N.Y., grapples with this absurdity on its self-titled, debut album. In our digital day, the band uses the classic sounds of indie-pop to reflect on the minutes and the years just passed. Many of singer-guitarist Aaron Pfannebecker’s lyrics deal with a relatable nostalgia. Pfannebecker’s suburban memories evoke a melancholy in the music that carries through the notes played. Singer-drummer Doug Marvin’s lyrics explore the sometimes inscrutable feelings trigged by scent and self-inflicted absences. Throughout the record, shimmering synths, booming head kicks, strummed six-strings, and contorted noise inspire a photo album’s worth of emotions.

Field Guides + CLEBS, b o t

Field Guides:
“Curated by the advertent mind of singer/songwriter Benedict Kupstas comes Boo, Forever, the debut LP by his Brooklyn indie combo Field Guides. A slowly unfurling pastiche of treated guitars, skittering rhythms, folk instruments, and field recordings, the music plays out like thoughtful musings in a Moleskine diary complete with sketches, philosophies, and to-do lists. Though only seven songs long, four of those clock in at over five minutes, often meandering their way through multiple sections, managing to feel both meticulously composed and improvised at the same time. What’s apparent from the opening volley of bird calls and accordion drone is that Boo, Forever is a deeply personal work, and to make any sense of it the listener will have to conform to the album and not the other way around.”—Timothy Monger

Post Moves:
Wedged right between the luddite folkisms of Jack Rose and the modal movements of Jim O'Rourke, you might find Post Moves. Through a collection of full lengths and exploratory EPs, Post Moves have walked the line between form and formless work. On their latest album, we still hear Sam Wenc’s obsession with ethereal slide guitars and with rambling stories-as-song. In Boogie Night, we find a bigger palette of sounds; harmoniums, bells, and choruses abound. Finding himself deep within the mantric (and manic) music of Tony Conrad, Sir Richard Bishop, and Susan Alcorn, Wenc pulls at the disquieting aspects of American music. He stretches the confines of the pedal steel guitar to suss out the more textural & tonal elements of the instrument; it's restorative and transfixing, putting the work more in the camp of ambient than anything else. Ultimately, Post Moves make Americana about an America that makes no sense; pastoral, shambling and strange.

Ka Baird:

Ka Baird is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist living and working in NYC. She is one of the founding and continuing members of the long running avant psych project Spires That In The Sunset Rise. Described by Jack Rose as a "female Sun City Girls," STITSR have contributed a different slant to the New Folk movement by incorporating various avant-garde and world music influences into their music. Their sound has been compared to the Raincoats, Meredith Monk, Comus and Harry Partch. Their most recent album "Beasts In The Garden" was described by Marc Masters as "some kind of long-lost Terry Riley/Angus MacLise collaboration, equally devoted to divine repetition and center-seeking ritual." Since 2001, they have released eight full length records and several side releases.

 

Daniel Fishkin:

Daniel Fishkin’s ears are ringing. Composer, sound artist, and instrument builder. Completely ambivalent about music. Daniel studied with composer Maryanne Amacher and with multi-instrumentalist Mark Stewart. He has performed as a soloist on modular synthesizer with the American Symphony Orchestra, developed sound installations in abandoned concert halls, and played innumerable basement punk shows. Daniel’s lifework investigating the aesthetics of hearing damage has received international press (Nature Journal, 2014); as an ally in the search for a cure, he has been awarded the title of “tinnitus ambassador” by the Deutsche Tinnitus-Stiftung. Recent activities include Composing the Tinnitus Suites: 2016, a concert series about hearing damage, taking place in Philadelphia, PA, supported by a a Project Grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Daniel received his MA in Music Composition from Wesleyan University, has taught analog synthesis at Bard College. After a stint working toward his PhD at University of California, San Diego, Daniel returned to the East Coast, and now lives in Queens, NY.

Paul Bergmann, Zechariah Funkhouser, Calvin Lecompte

"Paul Bergmann is a prize-fighter: sinuous, sinewy, a ballerina in a bloodspot arena." [L.A. Record] A crooner with a cultish following, Bergmann's "Americana noir goes beyond sad-sack, whiskey-soaked rumination, the hum of his almost pugilistic lyrics wry and sobering and more than a little bit challenging." [Buzzbands LA] Having done his time in L.A., Bergmann now resides in the Northeast. He's played alongside contemporaries like Angel Olsen, Chad Vangaalen, and Nick Waterhouse. “For Bergmann, the great harmonic enchanter, being itself doesn’t hold a center point. And that’s the point. It’s in all of us, distributed equally—a whisper all of us can hear.” [Flood]

Arthur King (Earlimart) + Doug Wieselman, Hektor Fontanez

Arthur King (Earlimart) + Doug Wieselman, Hektor Fontanez

Arthur King is not one particular person; it is a dynamic art collective, usually addressed as Arthur King & the Night Sea when referring to its 7-piece ensemble. But this time it’s just Peter Walker and Aaron Espinoza, venturing the plateaus of Utah with only each other and their recording equipment. Their new album, Changing Landscapes (Grand Escalante), features field recordings gone adrift in search of something more.

This epic meandering drone album is thoroughly engaging, despite how daunting. With some simple math, one would expect each of the five tracks on this nearly fifty-minute journey to be ten minutes each, but shockingly, one is barely over two. 'Scorpion' is really little more than a sonic purgatory, and it is only enjoyed as such, if at all, if one has persevered through the opening track, 'Western Fence Lizard'. Not that this record was made for everyone; understandably, music that requires such patience is an acquired taste–but we are all capable of acquiring it. Ambient music mimics life in its spontaneity and bliss, and doesn’t ask us to suspend reality.

Arthur King have ushered in more than a simple impersonation of life, though; they use real sounds of nature captured on a trip to Grand Escalante. Some of the most unsettling sounds are the ones that sound most human, whether a pulsing heartbeat ('Zzyzx'), distorted voices ('Cottonwood Road'), or simply the implication that someone is near, felt in the rustling brush which recurs throughout. But then, isn’t the feeling of discomfort what makes us most human? Or more broadly, it is the feeling of self-awareness, in any situation. Feel your humanity deeply, and meditate on Changing Landscape.

Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel + Levy Lorenzo/Peter Evans

Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel:

http://duetonline.net

and/or http://dftals.bandcamp.com

"The name of this Atlanta duo implies a proper classical recital, a rigid formality. But Scott Burland (theremin) and Frank Schultz (lap steel) don't do scripted, improvising not so much distinct sounds as evolving eddies of sound, vapors of tones that develop and transform gracefully. Hypnotic pulses and dreamy drones weave together to form a kaleidoscope of sounds and moods, ambient clouds and swooning collages that are as much about texture as they are timbre, like a long-lost soundtrack to a deep-sea documentary." -P. Wall, Columbia Free Times

 

 

Levy Lorenzo (percussion/electronics) & Peter Evans (trumpets)

 

Levy Lorenzo and Peter Evans began performing duo as part of the International Contemporary Ensemble's OpenICE commissioning series in early 2016. Their music is an otherworldly blur of dense rhythmic frameworks, elaborate notated pieces, open improvisation and weird drones. Lorenzo's complex of self-built instruments, gongs, dry percussion, laptop and sound processing engage with Evans' acoustic trumpet in a dialogue of noise, mystery, precision and chaos.

Jennifer O'Connor + Guts Club, Clint Michigan

Advance Tickets here!

Jennifer O'Connor (NY)-
"Jennifer O’Connor has been making under-the-radar, intimate, and emotionally affecting indie pop music for many years. After a stint on Matador Records, she broke off to start her own label, Kiam Records, in 2014; Kiam is also a brick-and-mortar record shop in Nyack, NY. Her sixth record, Surface Noise... is smart and hooky, the kind of record that will immediately catch your ear and that you can continue to find new aspects to love within as you dig into it further." -Impose
http://www.kiamrecords.com/jennifer_oconnor

Guts Club (New Orleans)
"Guts Club you might know as the cracked and slithering quasi-country act of New Orleans’ Lindsey Baker... 'Trench Foot' will be Baker’s third release as Guts Club, following 2016’s 'Shit Bug' and 2015’s 'The Arm Wrestling Tournament.' However and whatever you know, I hope that you’ll trust me when I say there is little else out there quite like the razor-direct intensity of Baker’s lyricism in Guts Club."- Tiny Mix Tapes
https://gutsclub.bandcamp.com/album/trench-foot

Clint Michigan (NY)
At first listen, Clint Michigan’s beautiful, sanguine 'Centuries' (Out now on Kiam Records) sounds like a document of reckoning, a nine track mediation that takes stock of certain realities—both personal and universal—that feel particularly pervasive in the cultural ether right now. Given the steady, assured nature of tracks like “Knickerbocker Street” and “Steven Says,” one might never guess that the record is, in many ways, a snapshot of chaos—a record made by an artist who travelled through the looking glass of a crippling addiction and managed to somehow come out the other side.

Dan Friel + Katiee, Invisible Circle

Dan Friel creates intense, colorful and intricate instrumentals that, for all their complexity, are melodic pop songs. Equally at

home in the DIY scene and the contemporary art world, Friel has been at the forefront of a movement of musicians who create dance music with a clear affinity for the extremes

of noise and metal, eschewing the traditional dance clubs and adhering to the ethics of the underground. On his sophomore Thrill Jockey album Life, Friel uses his surprisingly small arsenal of gear to distort and maneuver his beloved Yamaha Portasound into an expansive sound that is incredibly varied in tone

and texture. This toy keyboard, his first instrument, is manipulated beyond recognition to create songs that are frenzied and epic. Life also has moments that are incredibly sweet, idyllic, and fragile - sentiments that make perfect

sense coming from a new father whose instrument of choice is his childhood keyboard.

William Matheny

The best storytellers often aren’t the ones who have had the wildest experiences; they’re the ones who have experienced things we all have, and can articulate them in a way we haven’t yet figured out ourselves. They give us a new vocabulary for talking about ourselves and our world. That’s the gift William Matheny presents to us.

Matheny, a West Virginia native and longtime multi-instrumentalist for Athens, Ohio, indie heroes Southeast Engine, first broke out on his own with 2017’s Strange Constellations, his debut 11-song solo collection. He would best be classed as a songwriter’s songwriter--the kind of composer who gets the melody just right every time, and the kind of lyricist whose turns of phrase bring an involuntary grin. Once you’ve heard his deft songcraft, you might feel cheated that you didn’t discover him sooner.

Minor Moon + Maeve Thorne, Gabriel Birnbaum

Dread-laced and hopeful, meticulous and ecstatic - the music of Chicago based Minor Moon traffics in opposing forces in service of reflecting the kind lightness that can bear the tension of one's own contradictions. With a palette that leans heavily on folk rock and alt-country styles and instrumentation, bandleader and songwriter Sam Cantor, wrestles together something altogether different, with songs that slip through the hold of well-worn definitions and expectations.

Minor Moon's latest release, the single It's Okay, outlines a thoroughly modern and curiously self-conscious trip to the grocery store - replete with delusions of cinematic grandeur and zonked out screen time - all cloaked in a sleepy, rainy day almost-retro rock vibe. The band's previous EP, What Our Enemies Know, has been described as "Pink Floydian," "like a sinister Cat Stevens" and "reminiscent of Procol Harum or The Band working their way through a set of Lambchop covers." Minor Moon plans to release their second full length album in early 2019.

Maeve Thorne:
Intimate and expansive, like the last shimmer of dusk. Maeve Thorne plays ethereal, lustered folk rock.

"With her enchanting voice, Maeve Thorne draws you into her life, as told through her mesmerizing lyrics and instrumentals."

Bandcamp: https://maevethorne.bandcamp.com/

Gabriel Birnbaum:
Multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Birnbaum grew up in a family of musicians, playing with blocks under the piano while his older brother practiced Chopin, and begging for his parents to spin Paul Simon’s Graceland on the record player one more time before bed. After years exploring jazz and free improvisation on saxophone, he began experimenting with songwriting and home recording, eventually moving to Brooklyn, NY from Boston to pursue music further, joining Ethiopian ensemble Debo Band and playing with artists as diverse as Sharon Van Etten, Dina El Wedidi, Jens Lekman, Mutual Benefit, Khaira Arby, Katie Von Schleicher, Will Stratton, & Ancient Ocean.

These collaborations with artists ranging from Egyptian pop to drone to indie rock have created a dense web of connections and references from which Birnbaum wrings his songs, with Bob Dylan and Neil Young standing shoulder to shoulder with Mahmoud Ahmed and Pharaoh Sanders. Along the way, his band Wilder Maker has been praised in Spin, Stereogum, Paste, described on NPR as “an indie gem” and on Pitchfork as a “cracked Americana combo.” He has been an artist in residence at both the ISLAND Hill House and Wildacres Retreat.

http://www.impuritan.net/press.html
EPK: http://impuritan.net/epk.html
Website: http://www.impuritan.net

Impuritan – an experimental rock three-piece from San Francisco – consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion). Formed in 2011 by Alex as a solo recording project, the lineup bloomed into a musical collective. Its current members are Bay Area residents with diverse cultural backgrounds from Greece, El Salvador, and Peru respectively.

The music's experimental nature allows for both duo and trio performances by combining live instrumentation with loops & samples to create lush walls of sound. Since 2012, the band has performed consistently at Bay Area music venues, art galleries, and outdoor spaces – often with projections & visuals to enhance the proceedings.

Impuritan have released four albums and received consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, KFJC, KXLU, and positive coverage in The Bay Bridged, Pow Magazine, and KQED. They have toured the US West & East coasts, and toured Europe in fall of 2017.

On their fourth album Altered Statues, Impuritan captures the blends a wide foundation of post-rock with hybrid affection for psychedelic, noise-driven, and ambient sonics. The brief yet dense EP embraces an expansive range in 15 minutes – a burst of mind-bending feeling and a call to freedom through sound amidst a jaded modern age.

Eric Arn & Margaret Unknown + Lea Bertucci, Marcia Bassett

Explosive free-guitar vets Eric Arn (Feeding Tube, Feathered Coyote) and Margaret Unknown (Golden Lab Records, Wireglobe Recordings) will be touring the US as a duo this fall. They are available for a concentrated dose of brain-bending and string-destroying sound experimentation.

For 10 years, the duo of guitarists Eric Arn (Primordial Undermind, Outer Vortex, Bird People) and Margaret Unknown ((In) The Abyssity of Grounds w/ Linda Sharrock, Guele Populaire) have been exploring the outer reaches of improvised music with results as fascinating as they are audacious. Using any and all techniques, discarding conventional foundations, they eliminate boundaries between psychedelic explorations, free music, abstract noise, and contemporary composition. They are releasing their first duo LP ‘Paranza Corta’ on Feeding Tube Records in May 2018.

A first taste of the album: https://soundcloud.com/eric-arn-sounds/eric-arn-margaret-unknown-bowies

Tipple is a dynamic improvising trio consisting of players all known for their visceral sound and deep musical history. Tipple is a meeting point: Frode Gjerstad's projects in Norway reach back to his collaborating with the legendary John Stevens and Johnny Dyani. Besides his own work, New Yorker Kevin Norton is best known for his time with Fred Frith and Anthony Braxton. A godfather to much of the experimental music in New Zealand, in New York David Watson has worked with John Zorn, Lee Ranaldo, Ikue Mori and Phill Niblock, amongst others.
Tipple has released four CDs.

"This feels like a group that’s evolving fast and still working out its language… …a kind
of relaxed discursiveness that suits the tough conversational style. There are few more
challenging role-models than that"
-Brian Morton, of The Wire)

"Right from the gitgo, this is tight, high-end improv at its most exciting. This trio is extremely well balanced and tight"

Welcoming Bridget and Galen back for a full evening of magic (8pm), along with the incredible Eamon Fogarty at 9:30pm.

Ticket link coming asap!

Bridget St John is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist, best known for the three albums she recorded between 1969 and 1972 for John Peel's Dandelion record label.

Louque, Helio Parallax

Louque, Helio Parallax

Louque:
LOUQUE is Dustan Louque, a musical auteur traversing the country in his ‘87 Westfalia. He is a Louisiana native born in St. James Parish, yet he got his music start in Brooklyn (2001) in his home studio layering sounds and song over beats. His first album "So Long" caught the attention of a major label. He signed with Lava/Atlantic and released his first record having only played a few live shows prior. This relationship lead Louque into 2 years of touring and selling his music to film.

It is often realized that less is more. Louque felt his own less-is-more calling and he separated himself from the fast changing music/major label industry.

Today he travels and performs year round connecting on a more personal level with fans of his music. He performs solo at times, but often plays and travels with classical pianist Margaret Hebert, a native of Lafayette, Louisiana. A shared love of classical and New Wave music has inspired a new collaboration and they recorded their first song "Beneath The Cherie Moon" in 2016 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35EzZVZhLDQ). The two recently relocated from New Orleans to Lafayette. 

Helio Parallax:
With effective explorations in time and space, Helio Parallax presents a sound deeply rooted in spiritual
expression. True analog electronic music (no laptops) with cinematic landscapes (think Blade Runner
meets Miles Davis’ Elevator To The Gallows sound track) anchored by deep dub/hip hop beats with skilled
instrumentation to create an atmospheric landscape coined “Sci Fi Dub Noir”.
Josh Werner (Wu Tang, Lee Scratch Perry, Cocorosie, Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band) brings a concept
of Sci fi Dub Noir, performing visions of dub, hip hop and free jazz, with production and compositions directly
from a lineage of futuristic collisionist thought. As Bass Player magazine (March 2014) said, “ Josh Werner
has re-emerged with a project that spotlights his masterful dub playing.”
Multi-instrumentalist and producer Takuya Nakamura (Geroge Russell, Arto Lindsey,Cocorosie, Quincy Jones)
blends a new brand of Jazz, lo-fi analog and Hi-fi Digital space techno to his style of composition and
production. His ethereal trumpet playing establishing a cinematic landscape of sound which evokes futuristic
expressionistic moods throughout...
Dub specialist/beat maker Marihito Ayabe (Dub Nomads, Chimp Beams, and Shing02) offers a blend of hip hop
and reggae programming with Atmoshperic Sound Design.

Jaye Bartell + Relatives, Graeme Daubert
Jul
6
to Jul 7

Jaye Bartell + Relatives, Graeme Daubert

Jaye Bartell: Jaye Bartell's songs are poetic yet candid and unafraid, formal but also spontaneous. His lyrics leap and land like dancers and are alive. It may not be apparent at first, but Bartell’s songs are exultations that revel in the often unsteady but always moving life, filled with subtle humor and sincere love. Like the epic panorama on the album’s cover by artist Ursula Gullow, Bartell’s songs push out from the fissure between asphalt and clouds – car crashes and kissing, great gulls and stray dogs, friends and enemies, love and hate, all braided, each defining the other. In a Time of Troublefinds Bartell working with expanded instrumentation and more sonic color. Here his vocals have been honed, hardened, and thoughtfully tempered. There is sureness in his delivery, a paradoxical feeling that nothing is urgent despite the grave urgency of a song’s subject matter. In a time of trouble, a wild exultation…

Relatives: Relatives - Ian Davis and Katie Vogel - met upon arrival to New York City in 2007 and have been singing and writing together since. Over the years, we have been paring down and turning inwards, exploring what can be done with less. We released our second full-length album, Weighed Down Fortune, in November 2017, and have another one on the way in summer 2018!

Graeme Daubert: Graeme Daubert has been playing in Alpenglow since 2010. In 2016 he moved to Boston and thought he was leaving music behind him in New York. As the months wore on, however, he watched a small home studio being constructed in his living room and demos for a solo record starting to take shape. In March 2017 he recorded "On a Harbor Island" in Asheville, NC with his current bandmate, Justin Morris. Since the completion of that full-length album, Graeme has moved back to New York, assembled a band, and reveled in the experience of sharing his songs live.

Lea Thomas is a perceptive storyteller whose lyrics are imbued with humility and nostalgia for the beauty and resilience of wild, natural spaces. Her debut album, Want for Nothing, was released on Tacky Records in January 2017.

https://leathomas.bandcamp.com/

 

Erin Durant

"Not to make a horrible pun, but Brooklyn-via-New Orleans singer/songwriter Erin Durant indeed has an “Old Soul,” the name of the song we’re premiering her new video for. She’s inspired by the folk and blues music of an era long before she was born, and her 2016 album Blueberry Mountain — which was recorded live to tape — has a raw sound that hearkens back to decades past as well. Erin plays piano and sings, and the NY Times points out that she actually insists on taking her own 232-pound upright piano to each gig she plays. That should give you an idea of the kind of music you’re getting from Erin, and she delivers it with expertise. Get a taste for yourself by watching the video for “Old Soul” (made by Heidi Ferrell & Aaron Cassara) and streaming all of Blueberry Mountain below. Erin has a new album in the works for 2018."

“On their debut LP Cosmic Cash, New Jersey’s Garcia Peoples funnel the energy of their live shows into a cohesive full-length statement. Originally a quartet featuring Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki on guitars, Cesar Arakaki on drums, and Derek Spaldo on bass, they recently added Pat Gubler (PG Six, Wet Tuna) on keys to fully flesh out the group as a deep groove machine, capable of turning on a dime. Built on dueling twin leads, barrelhouse keys, and bubbly rhythms, their songs recall the melodic glory of NRBQ and Little Feat, approximating AM golden radio at it finest. These songs beg to be blasted with the windows rolled down while you cruise backroads trying to avoid the fuzz and have a good time. On your own terms, man.”
