For more than a decade, AARON ROSENBLUM has improvised and composed on guitar, violin, percussion, found instruments, field recordings and tape from headquarters in Massachusetts, Kentucky, Maine, Quebec and New York. Son of Earth, a trio with John Shaw (Magik Markers) and Matt Krefting, has released several LPs of low-volume electro-acoustics and continues to explore the boundaries of live performance practice. From 2005 to 2008, and 2013 to ∞, he has been multi-instrumental in psychedelic Louisville underground group Sapat. He has collaborated, recorded or performed with or as a guest member of Watersports, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Spectre Folk, Wooden Wand, the Cherry Blossoms, New Mother Nature, Joshua Burkett, Andrea-Jane Cornell and Gmackrr. His solo and group recordings have appeared on the record labels Siltbreeze, Amish, Polyamory, Black Velvet Fuckere, Apostasy and his own Hank the Herald Angel Recordings.

Guitarist/vocalist Max Vandever and cousin Elissa Ussery (drums/vocals) migrated from San Antonio and began their assault on Austin’s live music dumps in 2008 playing as a duo under ill-advised names including but not limited to Candle Shop & The Psychic Reader, Dead Ledger and Carousel Images. After poaching bassist/vocalist Jeremy Steen from an early lineup of The Gospel Truth, the newly dubbed FLESH LIGHTS (this name being approved by a focus group — A PERVERTED FOCUS GROUP), the trio quickly became a fixture on whatever you-got-songs-in-my-punk / you-got-punk-in-my-songs circuit that began to coalesce around the alleged live music capital.

GY-PROMO

After cutting their teeth with four drummers and a recent tour to Malaysia, GANGLY YOUTH of Louisville, Kentucky is finally hitting their stride. Their sound is a mix of jangly noise, fuzzy pop, and a no-perfection required style. One might be reminded of bands like Sonic Youth, The Pixies, or warped cassettes playing favorite pop songs.

IMAG0754-1

Christian DeRoeck began LITTLE GOLD as a way to exorcize the demons that had accumulated during his tenure with psychedelic revivalists Woods.  The lineup shifted gradually, then suddenly, and finally in 2012 DeRoeck left NYC for good to settle in Athens, GA.  He reassembled LITTLE GOLD with his good friend John McLean (of Dead Dog and Todd Killings) and they continued to do what LITTLE GOLD has always done, craft delightful pop songs about the seedy underbelly of day-to-day existence.

TODD KILLINGS was founded by a 14 year-old John McLean (Dead Dog, Nasty Intentions) in 1994 with a leftover bottle of brandy, a dictaphone, and an Angry Samoans album in the pine barrens of southern New Jersey. TODD KILLINGS remained the secret recording outlet for McLean’s pop songs, unlistenable noise, and screamo riffs.  TODD KILLINGS finally found the enthusiastic and talented rhythm section of Christian DeRoeck (Little Gold, Woods) playin’ fuzzy melodic bass and Chase Merritt (The Mammies, Sleepy Co.) tapping on the tambourines & floor tom with a pair of glowsticks.

Former Louisvillian and one-time Sapat member AARON ROSENBLUM will be providing “laid-back field recording grooves” between bands for your listening pleasure.

Weekend of Public Humiliation (For Some, Not Me)

Blues Control with Brian Turner

Blues Control with Brian Turner at the Rock Star Bar for Mark’s birthday party, 8/11/07

Sharkey Eats the Mic

Isn’t “Most Hated Band in Philadelphia” something like “Most Useless Celeb in L.A.?” Clockcleaner’s John Sharkey III gets wild on the mic, something Kidd Chris would most certainly approve of.

Clockcleaner

The strobe lights make it hard to take a crappy cellphone shot, yet Karen looks good here.

Berdan Looks On

Noted super-bro Michael Berdan looks on as Clockcleaner winds up.

Watersports and Aaron Rosenblum

Watersports and Aaron Rosenblum give Gavin Bryars a run for his money at Goodbye Blue Monday, 8/10/07.

Lots more to come, shortly.
