Iconic avant rockers SWANS tour in September

    Iconic avant-rock ensemble Swans will be undertaking the second leg of a year- long, worldwide tour - the first leg ending this past weekend with two sold out concerts in NYC. The dates celebrate the recent release of The Glowing Man, the fourth and final studio album from this line-up since their reactivation by band primum mobile Michael Gira in 2010 after a 14 year hiatus. The touring line-up is: Michael Gira - guitar, voice (original Swans); Norman Westberg - guitar (original Swans); Christoph Hahn - guitar (mid period Swans and most Angels Of Light); Phil Puleo - drums, percussion, dulcimer etc etc (final Swans tour and most Angels); Chris Pravdica - bass and gadgets (Flux Information Sciences / Services/ Gunga Din); Paul Wallfisch - piano, organ, and Mellotron ( Botannica / Ministry of Wolves / Little Annie). After the tour, Gira says, "I'll continue to make music under the name Swans, with a revolving cast of collaborators... touring will definitely be less extensive." I hope you'll consider covering via advance feature, album review or preview. Please let me know if you need a CD or DL. I'm providing a streaming link for your editorial use. Please do not post:  https://soundcloud.com/swansofficial/sets/the-glowing-man/s-PsgIb
 
     The Glowing Man was produced by Michael Gira, performed by the touring line-up, recorded by the venerable John Congleton (St. Vincent, Amanda Palmer, Baroness...) at Sonic Ranch, outside, El Paso Texas. Further recording was made at John's Elmwood Studio, in Dallas, Texas, and at Studio Litho (Seattle, WA) with Don Gunn, engineer, and at CandyBomber (Berlin) with Ingo Krauss, engineer. The record was mixed by Ingo at CandyBomber and by Doug Henderson at Micro-Moose, Berlin. Doug Henderson mastered it at Micro-Moose.
 
     Swans previous album To Be Kind debuted at #36 on Billboard's Top 200 Sales Chart and #5 on their Independent Sales Chart; the album has been streamed 1.2 million times on Spotify. The group sold out 47 concert dates in their subsequent touring including back-to-back sell-outs in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Paris, as well as single dates in cities like London, Berlin and Rome. The album garnered a huge amount of ecstatic coverage from a host of impressive outlets and the (2 hour long!) album stream was premiered by NPR. The Glowing Man has been greeted with equally rapturous reviews:
 
When Gira announced this Swans incarnation would end, he referred to "LOVE" (in all caps) as his reason for working with the musicians on The Glowing Man. Of course, Gira was not talking about the over-sweetened form we often get in pop music. The love in his music is as terrible as it is beautiful, a wrenching act of spiritual determination. Swans make this sound effortless, though, in a fitting end to a remarkable chapter of their career.
Saby Reyes-Kulkarni /Pitchfork.com 6/21
 
No experimental group has been able to so perfectly reflect the psychological turmoil of existence and the heavy burden of our pains and regrets. Their music acts as a grand descent and exploration into what we mortally fear and what innately drives us, and they've been able to do this in expert fashion over their past three records. Listening to Swans is an exhausting process to be sure, but it's rewarding in its self-analysis; you might not leave entirely sure of yourself, but you're sure as hell more in touch with the inner workings of the mind. And this is where "Finally Peace" comes in: While it's the happiest the band has ever been, it merely seems that this contentment is the original madness transformed. It's a way of saying that there remains unexplored territory and uncertainty ahead, but its also the best resolution Swans may ever achieve.
Sean Barry/ConsequenceOfSound.net 6/17
 
Apart from illustrating their overarching development from industrial weirdos to terrifying, experimental clairvoyants, the album combines the organic, acoustic tendencies of The Seer with the goth-rock showcased on Kind, acting as both linchpin and facsimile for their best body of work to date. Yes, Gira's poetry remains as creepy and intriguing as ever, its gravity matched only by the instrumentalists' steeled discipline. But where else can he go besides further into the void, towards the event horizon? Considering these inevitable existential plateaus, you can't blame the band for developing this epic trilogy as a triumphant summary of their storied career (and the troubling theses informing it), rather than one final progression.
Zoe Camp/Spin.com 6/17
 
     Michael Gira founded the seminal NYC band Swans in 1982. Quickly infamous for their punishing, brutal and repetitive onslaughts of sound, extreme volume levels, and the self-abusing, abject shouts and growls of Gira's sloganeering vocals, Swans gradually transformed over 15 years, ultimately venturing into harsh mechanical proto-industrial rock, to sprawling shifts of texture and perspective  (see the bucolic atmospheric folk idles and martial stomps of their much heralded Children of God double LP from 1987), to gentle acoustic-based songs, and finally on to their ultimate statement, Soundtracks For The Blind (1997) which somehow incorporated all of these elements at once, across well over 2 hours of music in one album. At this point, Gira called it quits after 15 years of relentless touring and productivity, and disbanded Swans.  He went on to release his music under the name Angels Of Light on a long series of critically acclaimed albums. Gira also produced and released music through his label Young God Records and was responsible for finding and nurturing such notable talents as Devendra Banhart, Lisa Germano, Akron/Family and Wooden Wand.
 
     In 2010, he reactivated Swans, releasing the studio album My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky to ecstatic critical response and touring the world for the better part of a year.  The Seer, a double CD studio set, came out in 2012 and was celebrated by a year-long tour as well. Both the live shows and album elicited still more media praise and album sales landed The Seer on Billboard's Top 200 Sales Chart. This was followed by the 2 hour long To Be Kind.

    Talking about his experiences with Swans these past six years Gira says: "On a few occasions - particularly in live performance - it's been my privilege, through our collective efforts, to just barely grasp something of the infinite in the sound and experience generated by a force that is definitely greater than all of us combined. When talking with audience members after the shows or through later correspondence, it's also been a true privilege to discover they've experienced something like this too."

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Release Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends - Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Release Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends - Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band And Friends: Circlin' Back Celebrating 50 Years

CD and CD/DVD combo recorded live at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, available for purchase Sept. 30
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 30, 2016) – For five decades, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has remained one of the most iconic names in American roots music. With one foot planted in the traditions of country-folk and the other pointing toward something new and unexpected, the group continues to tour and release music, influencing multiple generations of audiences and artists along the way. Nearly a dozen of those artists join the group on this year's Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends - Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Yearsconcert album, available as a CD or as a CD/DVD combo, due outSeptember 30th on the band's own NGDB Records, LLC, distributed by Warner Music Nashville.

Recorded live at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends captures a group of longtime road warriors who've yet to lose their grit, joined onstage by John Prine, Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Byron House, and Jerry Douglas. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (and early Dirt Band member) Jackson Browne joined in, along with longtime member Jimmy Ibbotson, while a sold-out crowd sings along in the background. From country classics to deep cuts, the tracklist finds bandmates Jeff Hanna (guitars/vocals), Jimmie Fadden (drums/harmonica/vocals), Bob Carpenter (keyboards/accordion/vocals) and John McEuen (banjo/fiddle/guitar/mandolin) swapping harmonies, trading solos, and shining new light on a catalog of vital, vibrant music.

Long before Americana music had a name, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band helped lead the charge, mixing elements of country, bluegrass, folk, mountain music, and rock & roll into a sound that celebrated the full range of American music. The guys were traditionalists andtrendsetters, performing songs that nodded to the past while still pushing toward the future. Released in 1972 — just six years after the group formed in Southern California — Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will the Circle Be Unbroken still stands as one of the most beloved albums in the country catalog, pairing the young band with legends like Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, and Mother Maybelle Carter.

Many decades have passed since that milestone album's release, with the members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band now enjoying their own legendary status. They continue to blur lines between genres, however, and the upcoming Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friendsaccomplishes something very similar to the classic Will the Circle Be Unbroken, pairing the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with the hit-makers, rule-breakers, and iconic figures of today's roots music community. This time, Hanna, Fadden, Carpenter, and McEuen are the elder statesmen, passing down their influence and inspiration to a younger class without giving up the torch just yet. There's more music to be made, after all. More shows to play. Another half-century to chase down. The circle rolls on.

Woodes Releases Video for "The Thaw"


Woodes Releases Video For "The Thaw"


YouTube / SoundCloud / Spotify / Apple Music

"Beautifully produced and deftly executed." - Pigeons and Planes

"Listen to Woodes once, and you won't be able to resist returning, time and time again."
Indie Shuffle


 
Australian artist/producer Woodes has released the striking new video to her acclaimed hit single "The Thaw." Shot on location in Lake Moutain in collaboration with Josh Harris (Welcome The Machines), the clip showcases the unique wintery Australian mountains juxtaposing the trees with ice and snow.

Woodes explains her inspiration, "I wanted to shoot on location where it was possible. Shooting on location provides an array of new variables to work with, the main one being the weather, which we had to closely monitor in order to shoot up so high with drones. My favourite part is the final shot. It looks like a movie, a game or a painting but it is entirely natural and unedited. It gives a full scope of the beauty of those mountains, all built in layers on the horizon, covered in mist." 

Woodes also worked with choreographer Courtney Hale to create flowing movement, which complimented her vision for the track. "For me personally I got to dance and incorporate movement to compliment my song. This was a great learning process, I found muscles I didn't quite know existed till after the shoot."

Savoy Motel have unveiled the second single from their debut, eponymous full-length out on What's Your Rupture? Records October 21"Sorry People" which premiered viaBeats1 is "a song based on the late Jay Reatard's skewed philosophy of never apologizing for anything, even though I remember him telling me he was sorry about countless crazy things in the past" explains bassist / vocalist Jeffrey Novak.

Nashville's Savoy Motel are an intensely orchestrated and unique hybrid of glam rock, boogie, soul, power-pop, garage, punk, dance music and showmanship all rolled into one. Between the four members (Jeffrey Novak, Jessica McFarland, Mimi Galbierz and Dillon Watson) they've previously played in hometown staples like Cheap TimeHeavy Cream and Rat Traps. Their vibe and live show has quickly made fans of The Guardianwho say Savoy "sound like a compendium of great, garish 70s pop moments" andPitchfork who described their first single "Souvenir Shop Rock" as "a promising, genre-busting introduction". The four piece hit the road this fall with The Dandy Warhols in support of Savoy Motel - full list of dates below. 
Savoy's whole package opens up their horizons, and yours, to a sound made by four friends tired of witnessing music eat its own tail; with unclouded judgment, creative refinements, and peerless technique, they grab that tail and stick it into a wall socket, putting the cap back on 15+ years of rock revivalism and strident genre adherence. And they make it seem easy.

"We use rock and roll as a vehicle to reach and promote the feeling of TOTAL FREEDOM," claims Watson. "Savoy Motel is defined more by a feeling than a sound. I hear this feeling in other acts too ... Miles Davis, Little Richard, the Osborne BrothersFaustThe Rolling Stones, all the best ones. And the diversity of records I knew TOTAL FREEDOM from was also encouraging to me early on in regards to the band, because it made me realize what potential and widespread appeal our music could have."
