Foxes in Fiction & Galleries - Borders (via You Know You Owe Me)
This is one of my favorite songs from West Palm Beach natives The Dewars. This is an especially good performance of the song, performed at The Bluebird Theatre in Denver, on their recent tour with Surfer Blood. The glockienspiel makes the song for me, which I think is being played by Lake Worth legend Steev Rullman in this video.
Make sure to download Songs From The Neverglades by the Dewars off their bandcamp.
Above is Sumsun's live performance of "Wind Stone" off of Samo Milagro. Joining Judson is Edwin who has made remixes under The Get, including a remix of our song Asipop. Supposedly Edwin is going to be performing in Sumsun from now on, which is really exciting. This was at Art Deco Center in Miami Beach last weekend. The projections were made by Morphologic Studios and Jamie Harley. This is a pretty decent quality being that it was taken from a phone.
I've seen Mickey Mickey Rourke's XOXO comments on just about every relevant band/label's myspace page, so inevitably I had to check out his stuff. I'm glad I did, this video looks really good, directed by Abram Pineda-Fischer.
This is the second I've posted of an upcoming Attached Hands DVD release. The video was done by Brian Phillips. Fever is a really intense stimuli overload of spontaneous visions.
On a side note, Attached Hands and Truman Peyote are releasing a 7" split. Attached Hands is having a release show for it at Will's Pub in Orlando on December 2nd. Us, Dark Sea of Awareness, Diamond Man, us, and others are playing.
row of x's is the bedroom project of a guy named Danny currently based in Gainesville, Florida. I wrote about him before when we played a show or two together in South Florida, and about his release spring clean. Those songs were more folk-based, acoustic songs. On olympus mons, row of x's expands his palette creating a more electro-acoustic feel, with most elements drenched in warm lofi/distortion.
"Here is a nice deep zoom into the Mandelbrot set. The words "nice" and "deep" fall a bit short actually.
"Mathematical Porn" is a better description.
After watching this video things in my room started to bend and breathe!! I hope you enjoy the trip!!
The final magnification is e.214. Want some perspective? a magnification of e.12 would increase the size of a particle to the same as the earths orbit! e.21 would make a particle look the same size as the milky way and e.42 would be equal to the universe. This zoom smashes all of them all away. If you were "actually" traveling into the fractal your speed would be faster than the speed of light.
You might like to know that this animation took me about two days to set up. My computer then rendered day and night non-stop for just over a month to produce the animation. The resulting twenty-eight anti-aliased 1280x720 AVI files (each just under 2GB) were each watermarked at full frames (uncompressed) Then I stitched them all together uncompressed. I also added the audio track at the same time. This was all done in Virtual dub. (except watermarking) The final watermarked Avi with audio is a whopping 46GB - Then I compressed it to 495mb so I could upload it onto vimeo. "
Ironing is a noise musician from Gainesville, Florida. He uses old tapes and records as a source to manipulate and make something new out of. I watched Ironing play a duo set with Hal McGee at Solder Fest this year and it was awesome. He really gets some expressive sounds out of his turntable. Reminded me of a Black Dice show, super loud experience.
Andrew also arranges shows under the name Action Research.
The 61st show is coming up on November 4th and features Mannequin Hollowcaust, Ice Orgy, Craow, Father Finger, Attached Hands, Hear Hums, Hal McGee, Minim, and Frog.
Perspectives is an ambient band from Gainesville, Florida. Recently they played at Solder Fest at the Lab in Gainesville, it was the first time I've seen them. Other than this Discogs page of some cassettes they've put out, I couldn't really find any songs or anything about them.
The setting was quite intimate, everyone sitting together making a half circle around the band as they fiddled with guitar, sampler, tape players, and other things. The had small amps and it was silent in the venue, a very moving experience. Hopefully this video does the performance some sort of justice.
It's my understanding that they've put out four tapes. Maybe sometime in the future we can track down these guys and get some songs online.
Christopher Miller (Electronic Sub South) just put on Solder VII Electronic Music Fest, highlighting different experimental artists from Gainesville, two nights long. One performance, conducted by Hal McGee, was around a 20 piece "noise" improv called Action Sound Painting Orchestra. A lot of the artist who played those two nights in their own bands were a part of this performance. Part one is above and part two is below.
Solder VII was made up of Action Sound Painting Orchestra, Hear Hums, Michael Parallax, minim, NEuBoRN, Perspectives, The Viirus, Diamonds Guns Gold, Dubbio Nil, He Dog, Ironing with Hal McGee, Ostral, Roamajou, Spirit Tramp, and Tribreasted Nun.
I made sure to catch Oddsac in Miami at one of the screenings. Deakin and Danny Perez were there, it was pretty cool to watch the film and talk with them. This is the video for Animal Collective's "Tantrum Barb" from their visual album Oddsac. Probably the danciest song on the album.
Sumsun's last mixtape was super good. He's just released a new one for bass enthusiasts Streets Of Beige, including tracks by Gold Panda, Off Balance Atlas, Quap, Baths, Kites Sail High, Evenings, Great Beer, Sam Prekop, Teebs, Yuk., Dunian, Simian Mobile Disco, Car Crash Set, The Ruby Suns, Sumsun himself, and his remix of our song "Asipop".
It's a good listen, check it out.
"London // United Kingdom
Bringing the swing and bass of 2009 LA to London spaces, with a dash of NY disco, Streets Of Beige is a venue hopping concept club carving a lone niche.
With a conglomerate of artists veering off onto the beaten track of instrumental hip-hop we decided to launch a night to celebrate the most innovate side of bass music in 2010. Anyone with a taste for Dilla won't be let down.
There'll also be splashes of disco and slo-mo, and some of the hazier cuts that have been bothering blogs lately, along with lashings of experiemental dubstep and the odd house dabble.
And our Mixcloud presence? A regular mix series showcasing some of the best international bass you can imagine. "
