Atlanta quartet stretch beyond their garage influences and turn in a memorable full length debut.
After finishing the tracking for their album Patagonian Rats , the fellas in Tera Melos had some extra studio time, and decided to record 51 minutes and 35 seconds of their stream of consciousness. The result is the noise/music-filled "Echo On The Hills of Knebworth," which, according to Tera Melos, "was a concentrated blur and will hopefully be the same for you." The band is asking for a minimum of $5, but feel free to "pay what you want," as your generosity is much appreciated and will directly contribute to Tera Melos touring UK/Ireland. [...]
The Chicago jazz quartet blink. is releasing its sophomore LP, The Architects , today via Whistler Records . A departure from the '08 release Epidemic of Ideas , the band's founder and bassist, Jeff Greene, pushes the envelope of jazz, rock, and electronica, fusing it with free improvisation. The highlight of this adventurous LP is the two-part "Protect the Light," which bookend a story of nine masterfully crafted melodies defining modern jazz. In particular, part 1 exploration of forms, textures and motifs, sets the scene nicely of a dimly lit jazz club circa 1959. So [...]
Every New Yorker's dream comes true in annoying subway performer "attack." If you're a New Yorker who rides the subway you probably have come in contact with loud disturbances in your daily commute. Whether it be a man preaching about not "letting the devil in" or a three-person Mariachi band in the middle of a crowded subway car, these disturbances get old and annoying real fast. Sometimes you just wanna punch them in the face. Imagine your minding your business, reading your book, listening to your music, talking [...]
Hey Sklones, I just got back from the Thursday night show and have to say that this is a must see show. Of course, I'm talking about the Sklar Brothers . You may know them from their outstanding podcast Sklarbro Country , or from television shows such as Chelsea Lately, appearances on ESPN on Cheap Seats or filling in for Jim Rome, or are hardcore and love love love Back On Topps. The Sklar Brothers create a mix of sports, comedy, pop culture, indie music, and all things in between into a smart, rapid [...]
Dit jaar gaat het er dan eindelijk van komen. Vielen eerder geplande bezoeken door logistieke problemen en gebrek aan doortastendheid van mijn kant in het water, op 5 maart aanstaande kan niets mij nog weerhouden het Kraak festival in Aalst aan te doen. Dat het de 13e editie is van het festijn brengt mij vooralsnog geen ongeluk. Het Gentse platenlabel Kraak is al jaren een merknaam voor de open vernieuwende muziekcultuur; niet alleen met hun eigen releases, maar ook met het gratis Ruis Magazine en allerlei concertavonden in Vlaanderen. Het festival sluit [...]
The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is an eccentric band, but I think their name already gives that away. Their music isn't exactly loud and in your face, though. Using horns, electronics, and ton of indescribable textures, Mount Fuji fades the borders between drone and jazz music with vast improvisational soundscapes. The band's latest album is Anthropomorphic . Stream the entire thing below, and grab it on their bandcamp for five Euros if you dig it. [...]

Hikaye hep yarım kalır. Havada asılı duran kelime taneciklerinden lazım olanları bir kenara ayırdığınızda geriye sadece hüznü yansıtacak olan boşluklar kalır. Durmaksızın ilerlediğimizi sandığımız zaman diliminin içerisinde, hemen her şeye bir çözüm bulunabilmişken iş bu hale, bu arada kalmışlığa bir türlü çözüm getirilememiş olması ironiktir. Yaralarımızın her yanı kapsamasına mı dert yanalım! bir yerlerde isyanın zembereğinden boşalırcasına daha fazla hayat diye sesleniyor olmasına vicdanlarımızın nasıl bu kadar kekremsi, nahoş yekpareliklerde tepkiler ürettiğine mi üzülelim. Tepkisizlikler göstere göstere nisyana sevk ettiriken, şimdi bir de kelimelerden yoksun kalmak, yarıda kalacak cümleler midir hepimizi bekleyip duran. İşin melodramatikliğini bir kenara bıraktığımızda, bir robot [...]

#100 can you believe it?. This is a really special mix with layers of ambience, drone, and electroacoustic improv going seamlessly on top of each other. I kind of tried to convey a sense of cinematic narrative. I regret this won't appeal to most of our listeners but if you want to give it a try, headphones are recommended. Hope you like it!

Everclear - Nervous And Weird (Live) Everclear first tasted true fame and the fortune that came with record sales in the mid-1990s by convincing waves of disaffected teenagers it would be romantic to swim out past the breakers and watch the world die. But in 1993, Art Alexakis wasn't there yet. "Nervous and Weird" finds band's lead singer having kicked heroin and departed San Francisco for Portland, Oregon. He's broke, married, and trying to support an infant daughter. He's paranoid, scared, and lonely. He's struggling to take control after a life spent [...]

Toronto - I dig sketch comedy. It’s funny. It’s short enough to hold my borderline ADHD attention span. It can be both thought-provoking and mind-numbing; good things in equal measure. My only quam is that sometimes, it lacks originality. Solution? Whip a healthy dose of improv into the mix, and BAM! You have yourself some PB and J . (READ: No, I am not referring to the nutty, delicious spread famous for it’s connection to jam and childhood days of yore). The PB and J Sketchprov Show is a hilariously funny comedy troupe [...]

I am not a bible person, but today I went from cursing to fearful to begging and all points in between Since I discovered I had diabetes, I have been taking my meds and eating right. Sure, slip in three lbs of delicious crab, but otherwise, I have been pretty good. But all weekend long, my eyes were troubling me. Menus, iPhone screens; if I looked at text, it blurred. If I looked at backlit text, my eyes actually wiggled in their sockets, aching and generally feeling uncomfortable. I ended up going to the park and [...]
