New Track: "Observatories" - Jeff Zeigler & Dash Lewis

“Observatories” is the latest collaboration between Jeff Zeigler (Valley Exit, Inlets, Arc in Round) & Dash Lewis (Gardener). Synth-fueled atmospherics envelope as one explores a pensive, pacifying state. The rhythmic, percussive motion steadies as the soft, bright touches of keys accent. Take it all in - just a little somethin' to help ease ya into your day. You can also find them opening for Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore this Monday, April 29 at Johnny Brenda's.





New Body Meat Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Body Meat is the musical alias of Christopher Taylor, whose newest release Truck Music represents a radical departure in vision from their earlier rock-oriented works. Backed by an evolving cast of players, the most recent iteration of the project features Mathew Anderegg on percussion. The constant volley of rhythmic samples and synths hammer the listener with the driving force of post-punk played out through an R&B lens. On the whole, Truck Music is more groove than grind - the momentum behind each track favors danceability over thrashing. Recordings like “No Garden” eek out traces of James Blake’s early works, reconfiguring sounds from the post-dub movement of the early 2010’s into music that is absolutely refreshing. Truck Music feels progressive, in that it is creatively expansive with little regard for boundaries, and yet the new direction feels wholly intuitive and natural.

Gina Biver's “Mirror” is 2spooky

The Fuse Ensemble achieves full spookiness on “Mirror” from The Music of Gina Biver. The track features a discordant string/piano thing with Gina Biver intoning, “something looks back each time I move, oh demon mask, sad, turned down mouth” from American poet Colette Inez's poem “Empress in the Mirror.” In all, the creative mixing and pleasantly random improvisation is able to get the spooky sound, or as the liner notes put it, “awakening new shapes and realities while the repetitive nature of the Biver’s electric guitar maintains an underlying continuing, eternal presence.”

I could see some cool audio/visual collab on this one.

Gelax Band - Fantasy Indie Rock Live at Handlebar 04.21

 

They call it “Fantasy Rock” and I call it very unique and creative songwriting. Combining indie rock with dream pop and some kind of dark avant-garde mood swings is how I describe Gelax. Their main influences are Depeche Mode and Radiohead and they combine that with some all-around mysticism to put together their latest single “Life”. It’s a powerful track with very interesting instrumentation. It would be intriguing to see this track brought to life with a live performance which you can do on April 21st at Handlebar in Kensington Market. – Kris Gies
