JEN GLOECKNER - Between Light & Dark, Dream & Wake

All things beautiful are destructive, too, and musician Jen Gloeckner provides a taste of both in “Mouth of Mars” (2009), the long-awaited follow-up to “Miles Away” (Gloeckner’s debut album released in Europe through One Little Indian Records UK in 2005). MOJO Music Magazine in London has described Gloeckner’s sound as “spell-weaving…different, dark, ethereal, funky; an alluring big-sky, small-room mystery.” As in “Miles Away,” Gloeckner home-recorded “Mouth of Mars” in her bright orange upstairs-bedroom-turned-studio, and its “big-sky” themes are evident in more than the album’s title. Her new release is an instinct-driven exploration of primal emotion, where minimal lyrics and layers of sound evoke a universal, gut-level knowledge of desire, separation, and the sacred connection of souls.

For better or for worse, Gloeckner’s music seems to say, this is the human condition as revealed through sound—raw, dirty, brutal, healing, serene, and sacred all at once. Gloeckner describes her artistic inspiration in connection to moods and images that she receives in dreams, and her fans, too, perceive a kind of mythical, collective-unconscious underlying the music that she creates—songs that can be as unrelenting as your darkest nightmares and as redemptive as your purest desire.  (as compiled on the musicians webpage)

Sickened by the sad state of modern mainstream music, the gents from Black Wyrm Seed bartered for a kilo of “magic beans” in a backalley deal somewhere on the South Side of Chicago, and shortly thereafter found themselves in an utterly foreign — and yet strangely inviting — domain. There are some who might refer to the place as “parts unknown”; others might call it “the great beyond”; and its exact coordinates remain unclear. But this much is certain: it lies somewhere between 1966 and the mountains of the moon…and to Black Wyrm Seed, it is now home. (as compiled on the bands website)

RONN LOA on the stream @ Pluto Radio...!

Times Passes and Things Change…….or DO they?!
Recently resurrected from its own ashes this is no mere "side project." The Coffee Tribe is actually the ORIGIN of the wildy popular and well-known The Topangas (formerly The Aloha Mountain Groove Band!!!) & serves as an alter-ego outlet for songwriter Renn Loa's somewhat more caffeinated songs.

From the land of Kona coffee, volcanoes, surfboards, and ukuleles comes The Coffee Tribe! Led by the ever elusive MONDO-chameleonic-yet-occasionally-charismatic Chief RennTiki MochaMon, The Coffee Tribe is music's answer to caffeine!

They sound like everyone else and yet NO one else! They play like they have instruments... and they have MUCH more fun with bass, drums, guitars and occasional keyboards than 4 or 5 humans really ought to.

We now raise our generously-portioned cups of damn fine coffee in your general direction and ask you to join us in our quest for good times, stiff drinks, ebullient music and just the right places to enjoy them in. Wake up brothers and sisters of the almighty sacred buzzing bean and HEAR the coffee! (as compiled from the band's website).

So Tiki Tribalistas and cave dwellers unite in the fuzz-toned noise addled bliss that is The Coffee Tribe!

HOOVER DAMS - Punk / Rock / Surf

‘What is this low-fi loud guitar love-in and where has it come from? Bradford, apparently. it’s catchy, it’s interesting, it’s a little dark and it sounds like the track was recorded on an old Memorex cassette found under the passenger seat of someone’s car - but the lo-fi feel goes well - it’s a bit dirty and you want it to be that way. Who wants to feel all shiny after some gritty loud guitars? More like you need a shower and a good scrub. But hell, you’re alive. ~ Frantic Corduroy Website (as compiled on the bands website)

RWAKE - Metal / Southern Rock / Progressive

Just over ten years ago RWAKE started out as a four brothers jamming to kill time, 'cause in Arkansas that's all you have...time. And in time those brothers were joined by other brothers (and a sister) and recorded some tracks their first material in September of ’97.  A “real” first demo, Xenoglossalgia: The Last Stage of Awareness, followed shortly as well as a slew of shows throughout the deep south, including their first ventures outside their home state of Arkansas.

Voices of Omens hits below the bible-belt with thick, tar-black riffing, vicious male/female howls and leads so sweet you'd think they're from Georgia. Instead this Arkansas band represents their dirty south with their intensely unique style of acid-drenched metal. Voices of Omens is a hostile explosion of hideously impure American metal which emanates an eerie and unsettling vibe; haunting in atmosphere and hallucinogenic in it's effect on the listener. )as compiled on the bands website)

LAST TRAIN HOME - Country / Folk Rock / Indie

"One of the country's most formidable roots-rock bands.".....That's the assessment of Nashville's Tennessean newspaper about Last Train Home.   And while roots-rock is at the heart of LTH's sound, don't overlook the country, bluegrass, swing, blues, folk, pop, and Tin Pan Alley influences you'll find if you lend this band an ear. What began as a part-time band in Washington D.C. back in 1997 has evolved into an acclaimed full-time touring group based out of Nashville.

LTH frontman Eric Brace is a former staff writer for The Washington Post where he was a columnist covering the local music and nightlife scene. Prior to Last Train Home, Eric played in several Washington area bands, including B-Time, the Beggars, and Kevin Johnson & the Linemen. He also ran a local rock label, Top Records, for many years, before focusing on his own music.

The band has played more than a thousand shows over the years, including tours of Australia, Germany, Switzerland, and the Virgin Islands. With its nine releases, Last Train Home is a prolific band that gets better with each release, and continues to be one of the most interesting bands on the landscape of American music.  (as compiled on the bands website)

Our heroes met at University, where they were bitter rivals. Years later, they found themselves in New York City, beavering away in dusty corners of the Great Media Behemoth: J put in time at a literary agency and studied the mystical art of making records while slaving as a sound engineer at various hip recording studios about town, while A avoided sunlight as a film archivist and curator at a broadcasting museum. Both had unsatisfying tenures in doomed rock combos where they nevertheless honed their musical skills. Each fancied himself a songwriter in the classic pop mode and pursued the elusive art with uncommon zeal, resting only for massive infusions of film noir and comic books.
