Important Festival News (For Those Who Mysteriously Fail To Read Other Music/News Sites)

By Gerard on Friday, July 13th, 2012

If you’re like us (and I suspect you are), YOU LOVE MUSIC FESTIVALS almost as much as you love freedom. And there’s so many that are close to our hearts.  Matador’s Lost Weekend.  Atlamont.  The Gathering Of The Juggalos.  The Cornerstone Festival.  I could go on, but you’ve probably got some illegal downloading to back to, so let’s cut to the chase. Transmission Entertainment’s 7th annual Fun Fun Fun Festival is happening in Austin, TX this coming November 2, 3 and 4, and we’re thrilled to find out at the last minute announce Tanlines, Fucked Up, Paul Banks and The Young are all taking part.

Likewise,  ATP America’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” weekender (September 21-23) has been moved from Asbury Park, NJ to the glamorous West Side of Manhattan.  The Lee Ranaldo Band and Chavez will be playing, along with a tremendous lineup of performers, none of whom are named Louis C.K.   They’ll all have their hands full measuring up to Richie Blackmore at California Jam (above) , but there’s no harm in trying.

Lee Ranaldo Playing Instores, Reading Poetry

By Michael on Friday, May 4th, 2012

You’d be hard pressed to find a dude who loves independent record stores as much as Lee Ranaldo. Rumor has it Lee is calling all sorts of indie shops around the country just to say wassup.

So it should come as no surprise that in the coming weeks, Lee will be stopping in two of our favorite record stores to play some songs for the locals. First, he’ll be playing at Durham, NC mainstay Bull City on Monday May 14 (in advance of his May 15 show at the Duke Coffeehouse). The following Monday May 21 finds Lee at Bloomington, IN’s Landlocked Music for a short performance and a reading of his poem ‘Bloomington, Indiana: Autumn.’ That’s pretty fitting.

The Men join Lee Ranaldo in London

By Stuart on Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Those of you with some sort of long-term memory will hopefully remember the previously announced Lee Ranaldo dates, but now we can reveal The Men will join to support at the London show happening this June.  The Men of course have a 7″ single out on the Singles Going Home Alone series, whilst Lee is out in support of his latest album.  He recently played a stripped back set for The New Yorker, performing “Off The Wall” and “Hammer Blows” (which follow the dizzying over zealous multi-camera angle interview edit).

VIDEO : Lee Ranaldo – “Angles”

By Gerard on Wednesday, March 28th, 2012
YouTube Preview Image

If you’ve yet to check out Lee Ranaldo’s ‘Between The Times & The Tides’, you’re running the considerable risk of missing the boat on one of 2012′s most thrilling rock albums. I mean, we’d usually encourage you to take risks in your personal life, but that’s why there are pursuits such as autoerotic asphyxiation hang-gliding.

“Angles” is the second video from “Between The Times & The Tides” ; it premiered earlier today via New York Magazine, and here’s some notes from director (and longtime collaborator) Leah Singer.

This song felt very ‘New York’ to me. Time moves at a different pace here, fast and slow all at once.  In the video you see a girl running aimlessly yet urgently through the streets. The song implies that relationships move at their own pace too, watching time pass but always meeting back up, coming full circle with someone.  The swinging guitar pays homage to Lee’s experimental work and Z Behl, the girl, has been a friend since she was a child.  Josh and Brett from Red Bucket Films lend a hand. They worked with our kids on the feature film  ‘Daddy Longlegs’.  So it was a bit of a family affair.
