Dead Cinema ~ The Loners

•May 13, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Dead Cinema “The Loners” out May 14th

The time has come Dead Cinema fans, friends, and family… And for that matter, the time has come for the rest of you as well. We are ready to spill the beans about what we’ve been doing over the last, vast amount of time that you haven’t written us or sent us gifts. With the most pride and passion we could ever possibly express, we would like to announce that this album, our fourth freaking album…will be self-titled, ‘The Loners’. It has been titled something like that through nearly the entire process. In fact, what usually takes us weeks on end to sum up and put a label on only took us a five minute, silent conversation this time around, maybe due to residual brain paralysis. What? Oh, yeah, from the induced comas we put ourselves into, when we’re flatlining to gather material. Maybe you’re cool enough to roll with us, and maybe you’re not. Anyway, the whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends. It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, dancers, synchers, as people! Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us. And we now bequeath it to you.

The first single off the album used to be called ‘Now’. I forget what we’re calling it now. I guess I could look it up if you really wanted. Not really sure what else to say except for we love this song. It just feels like the perfect way to start this new journey we are embarking on not only as a band but as a Movement. To show people that you can lose battles but come back and win full on wars. You can rise from the ashes….or even, like if you ate at the Mongolian BBQ buffet place for lunch, sort of halfway against your will, but you were so hungry and confused, and you kept thinking that the sweet and sour sauce would do the trick on the next bite. The only thing you have to do is keep moving forward!

Thanks to our fans for believing in us, before it ever occurred to us to do something like that. And thanks to our producers—you know who you are. And a special thank you to ourselves—sorry we never listened. We are prouder than ever and more excited now than ever before in history to be ambivalent about being cast in Dead Cinema.

Night Mechanic’s “Working late” in the Mercury

•March 24, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Night Mechanic’s second album Working Late is due out April 1st!

This is what Ned at the Mercury thinks of it:

First up is a killer track from the amazing new Night Mechanic album, Working Late. It’s the Portland band’s second album although it’s the first one I’ve heard. This band has it all: Knotty dueling guitars, heat-seeking pop chops, a singing drummer! I had a rough time picking a track from Working Late to post, as the whole album is terrific, but here’s track 3, the fantastic “Attempt to Steal.” The nasal vocal in the opening verse reminds me of a late-’70s/early ’80s-era band I can’t put my finger on (someone help me out here?), and the song slowly builds in intensity to a terrific chorus. Except to hear more about Night Mechanic in the coming weeks, including, hopefully, details of an album release show. Working Late comes out April 1 on AIO Soundings.

~~Diminished Men’s Capnomancy~~

•January 11, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Diminished Men’s NEW LP “Capnomancy” was released yesterday Jan 8, 2013. We make a cameo on one of the tracks that J wrote the lyrics for and I sing. It’s a great record that can be bought on their website and we’ll have a copy or two over here aswell!!

“The bands jagged, hard-charging approach evokes images of slit jugulars and accelerated heart rates, all the while swathing you in a blissful claustrophobia. Reflecting elements of Link Wray, Morricone’s dissonant horror scores, gritty noir and Joe Meek’s sickly productions, as well as the provocative imagery of filmmakers like Wim Wenders and Jean-Pierre Melville, synthesizing them into something truly organic and original. Another bizarre series of degenerate no-hit wonders from the phantom guitars of Steve Schmitt, multi-instrumentalist Simon Henneman, and drummer Dave Abramson. Recorded & Produced by Randall Dunn. W/ guest appearances by Sara Johanne, B.R.A.D,Sam WambachSkerik, & Milky Burgess.”
