Weekly Special #181b: Langhorne Slim

Langhorne Slim sings Pavement songs in the shower. I learned this while drinking Yuengling with him at a Holiday Inn Express a few hours before his sold-out show at The Bell House in Brooklyn. - Read Ryan Henriquez's interview with the man here.


Weekly Special #181a: Fiasco

The guys in Fiasco create the kind of angular, wire-tight bursts of frenetic math-punk that can simultaneously move crowds and impress even the most technically-minded musicians. The songs are a mind-boggling juggling act of interlocking guitar and bass riffs and manic drums, and they always carry an underlying punk influence (Fiasco started out as a punk covers band, after all). Just check out “Oh You Horny Monster” from Native Canadians (or the entertaining A cappella version on Myspace) for a taste of the fun and complexity that makes up the band’s songs. - Read Bill Dvorak's interview with the band here.


Lymbic Systym announces tour dates + free mp3

Living about 1700 miles apart (namely in Austin and Brooklyn) doesn't prevent brothers Jared and Michael Bell from conjuring up beautiful instrumental music. Ah, the miracles of inspiration (and of the internet)! Apparently though, also the good old telephone played a role in Lymbic Systym's latest CD called "Shutter Release". After touring with acclaimed bands like Broken Social Scene, The Books, Crystal Castles, the band is about to embark on a west coast tour, scheduled for early January. Definitely a good time to spend a few days in San Francisco, LA, San Diego, Tucson and Austin... The band also released a free download of the song "Bedroom Anthem" - check it out here.


Chris Garneau's new video

Yes we have a weak spot for Chris Garneau - here's his new video "Fireflies" from his latest album "El Radio"


The Shake's CD release party, Thursday 12.03 at Santos

On Thursday, Dec. 3rd, The Shake will celebrate the release of their new album, "The Shake Go Crazy," at the main room at Santos Party House. The New York 4-piece will be joined by fellow City rockers Milo & The Fuzz, Reckless Sons and Black Taxi. The band also just announced the release of their new music video for their single, "Got No Soul" - here it is - directed by Anders Urmacher (you guessed it, another New Yorker). Those who love fine rock'n'roll done the right way shouldn't miss this show.
