Now in its second year, Houston’s Ethereal Fest launches this Saturday, January 19th, featuring a solid cast of Texas shoegaze and dream pop luminaries. Tickets for a nine-band bill are a bargain at $10 presale, $12 at door. With known names (well, known to our listeners anyway) like Glare, Angel Aura, Dottie, Processions, Daze, Fun […]

I won’t begin to pretend this is fully functional. Have had hands in code from Canadian HQ, San Francisco, Austin, and Central California, and it’s at least moderately functional. There’s still much build-out to be done before we implode our older imprint, but the hope is to make the site more engaging and easier to […]

We’d always understood Austin’s Blushing had all the elements necessary to break through: songwriting, performance, personality. From SXSW showcases, to their star turn at this year’s DreamGaze ATX, it was simply understood that Blushing is poised to advance to top-tier status in the genre. If you’re only just now waking up from a year-long nap, […]

Thrilled to offer a video premiere for a project we weren’t familiar with, Starframes. It’s a warm and welcoming slice of electronic dream pop, with a classic bass line that will get your toes tapping immediately. Certainly started involuntary staff dancing in these studios! “Rising Wall” is the third single excerpt from Nicht Vergessen, the […]

A lot of folks were brokenhearted about the dissolution of the brilliant Australian band Miniatures. We would know, we were top of that list. By all accounts the breakup was amicable, geographic changes were the primary factor in the collapse of Miniatures following the release of their critically-acclaimed Jessamines LP on Saint Marie Records last […]

If you know us, you know Wildhoney. We’ve been bumping these incredible sounds from Baltimore since their first official EP, released back in 2013. They’ve only grown in stature and musical prowess ever since. From Seventeen Forever to Your Face Sideways, to their first full length LP Sleep Through It on Deranged Records, Wildhoney is […]

Price, 57, has played music nearly her whole life, starting with piano when she was five years old. But in the fall of 2009, the guitar was still something of mystery to her. She had been playing for only a couple of months and was struggling a bit with the new challenges. Yet, instead of […]

The National have confirmed that they will start recording their next album “soon”. The US band released their sixth album ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ in 2013, more recently showcasing new song ‘Roman Candle’ live. With frontman Morgan recently saying that the group need to “change and evolve” on their next record, guitarist Morgan has now […]

Track appears in new box set… A new box set showcasing recordings Captain Beefheart made in the early Seventies is due for release. After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 To 1972 features newly remastered versions of three albums that Beefheart and the Magic Band released […]

This week’s essential mix from All Songs Considered includes a surprising, electronic, mostly instrumental cut from The 1975 — a British group known more for its brash Top-40 pop and rock — an intimate home demo recording from My Morning Jacket and a spare, moody cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” by the Irish folk […]
