Low Volts en Tijuana

El tres veces ganador del San Diego Music Awards, Low Volts, le está dando un shock en el corazón al mundo de la música con sus difusas interpretaciones de blues-rock n ‘soul. Armado con solo una vieja y arenosa slide-guitar, un estruendoso bombo cargado con panderetas y voces oscuras y aullidos, su one-man-show crea un sonido espeso y pantanoso equivalente a la fuerza de una banda de cuatro piezas.

Low Volts se presenta mañana Viernes 15 de Junio en Tijuana, en Mous Tache Bar, acompañado de los extravagantes 357 magnum&the julio pillado experience (TJ) y Dani Bell, vocalista de Dani Bell and The Tarantist (SD).

Godspeed You! Black Emperor at the Observatory North Park

Godspeed You! Black Emperor played the Observatory North Park on may 22nd and it was near perfect.
This show was in support of their most recent album “Luciferian Towers” out now via Constellation Records.

The performance felt and looked like a juxtaposition of elements meeting in contradictory terms.
It felt hopeful and brimming with hopefulness.
It felt joyous and lachrymose.
It was like a meeting of doppelgangers at opposite ends of the spectrum.
It was one of the best experiences that we’ve had at the Observatory. The sound was great (it could’ve been a little bit more louder). The crowd was respectful on all sides, they were quiet and if they needed to move they would do so in a polite manner. They were loud and responsive when the show required for them to be such.
And the visuals were amazing.

Having 4 projectors running at the same time and having someone manually change the film to convey the images it gave the show another layer.

This is the setlist:

Hope Drone / Bosses Hang / Anthem for No State / Fam/Famine / Undoing a Luciferian Towers / Moya /BBF3

Melvins – Don’t forget to breathe

“Don’t forget to breathe” is one of our favorite songs off the Melvins new album ‘Pinkus abortion technician‘, available via Ipecac Recordings.

Directed by Ava Hazelmyer “We’re very excited to have a video for our song ‘Don’t Forget To Breathe,” directed by the hyper-talented Ava Hazelmyer. Hopefully there will be more collaborations with her in the future,” said Buzz Osborne. “We can’t wait for people to hear Pinkus Abortion Technician and for them to see both of these killer bassists on our upcoming tours!” “I like to make scenes devoid of context or overt meaning, explained Hazelmyer. “I like taking everyday things and dropping them into an absurd setting. I like the idea of something being experienced without any preconceived notions or connections.”
The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players being Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers).

A Place To Bury Strangers – Too Tough To Kill

A Place To Bury Strangers   just released their 5th album “Pinned” on April 13th, 2018 on the Dead Oceans label.

With it now they have shared the video for the song “Too Tough To Kill”.

The director Colin Marchon says, “The project is a kind of America-sploitation video in response to the frustratingly stagnant state of the country. The song felt like the perfect context to speak to that. Technically speaking I don’t really consider myself an animator. It just feels really fun and cathartic to cut up images that speak to me or make me laugh and play with them in front of a camera. The editing is a little more complicated but as a full time commercial filmmaker the medium is just a very easy outlet to let out my subconscious after work.

 

Per the press release from the label’s site:

A couple of years ago, A Place To Bury Strangers made one of those big decisions Ackermann speaks of on “Never Coming Back.” They were in search of a new drummer and Lunadon met Lia Simone Braswell who was playing shows around Brooklyn where she had recently relocated from Los Angeles. After seeing her play, Lunadon was moved to ask Braswell if she’d want to come to a band practice sometime.

“As things go on, you don’t want them to be stagnant,” Ackermann remarks. “Being a band for ten years, it’s hard to keep things moving forward. I see so many bands that have been around and they’re a weaker version of what they used to be. This band is anti-that. We try to push ourselves constantly, with the live shows and the recordings. We always want to get better. You’ve got to dig deep and take chances, and sometimes, I questioned that. It took really breaking through to make it work. I think we did that.”
They are already on tour supporting the album and will be playing (hopefully very loud) at the Casbah on June 7th. Supporting that show will be Sextile and Keepers.
