NEW MOTHER NATURE is a relatively new band on the Louisville scene, but filled with familiar faces. Members of NEW MOTHER NATURE are current or former members of Old Baby, The Phantom Family Halo, Natural Geographic, and many more. They quickly became one of our favorite Louisville bands, and we think you’ll like ‘em as well. Their sound “is rich with straight-forward melodies… all while maintaining a sense of playful, if cautious experimentation.” — Syd Bishop, LEO Weekly.

Although best known for his work with iconoclasts Charalambides, which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991, TOM CARTER has recently focused on his solo performances and recordings, which have increasingly featured visual components – including collaborations with filmmakers Martha Colburn and Margarida Garcia. Currently, Carter is on a solo US tour with New Zealand’s Gate, and working on two solo LPs for release in 2014. TOM CARTER is also well-known for collaborations with other musicians. Fellow travelers have included Marc Orleans (Sunburned Hand of the Man), Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), Tom Surgal, Marcia Bassett, Paul Flaherty, Thurston Moore (Chelsea Light Moving), Dredd Foole, Loren Connors, Pip Proud, Jandek, Bardo Pond, Steve Gunn, and Matt Valentine, among many others. Over the past decades, he refined his evolving ideas of tonal immersion (and the quest for the perfect fuzz tone) into a layered sonic toolkit of rough beauty. He now lives in New York City.

JONATHAN WOOD & LOWE SUTHERLAND are known to connoisseurs of Louisville music, primarily for their main musical vehicles Old Baby and Sapat, respectively. They’re taking a dynamic duo detour down a ramshackle dirt road, riding a pink Cadillac into the sunset of a February night. Will they fly off the handle, riding high like Thelma & Louise James Taylor and Dennis Wilson into an expansive western sky? Or will they keep it down-to-earth, dusting up your jacket and filling your lungs with exhaust while they peel out, squealing their tires? There’s only one way to find out, dear listener…

CIAN NUGENT is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time. In the past he has toured with people such as Jack Rose, Glenn Jones, Micah Blue Smaldone, Ben Reynolds, Nalle, The Family Elan, George Stavis, Jozef van Wissem, C Joynes, Peter Delaney, Thinguma*jigSaw and James Blackshaw throughout Europe and the United States.

DAUGHN GIBSON, THE DELOREANS, and JONATHAN WOOD & LOWE SUTHERLAND at ZANZABAR, Tuesday, July 16th

Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life are proud to present:

DAUGHN GIBSON (Carslile, PA; on Sub Pop)
THE DELOREANS
(Louisville, KY)
JONATHAN WOOD & LOWE SUTHERLAND
(from Louisville, KY; members of OLD BABY and SAPAT)

Tuesday, July 16th
at ZANZABAR
2100 S. Preston
8 PM doors, 21-and-over
$6 advance tickets available online here: http://zanzabarlouisville.ticketfly.com/event/287929-daughn-gibson-louisville/ and at Zanzabar; $8 day-of-show

Let’s get a few facts straight right off the bat. The name is DAUGHN GIBSON – rhymes with Jaughn, or Raughn. He was born in the village of Nazareth, PA, and currently resides in the sleepy college town of Carlisle, PA, where he frequents local watering holes like The Cave and Alibis. He’s 6’5″, hovers at 200 pounds, and has a head of jet-black hair thicker than a porcupine. He played drums in the group Pearls & Brass for a number of years, touring the US to small but enthusiastic crowds, and if you tag them as “stoner-metal” it will go to show that you’ve never actually listened to them. For a few years in-between, Daughn was a trucker, sure, but he’s also been packing boxes in an un-air conditioned warehouse, climbing up commercial broadcast towers with untested levels of radiation, working the register at an adult bookstore, doing sound at dive bars and collecting unemployment checks to earn a living. DAUGHN GIBSON first entered the daydreams and fantasies of the general public in the spring of last year, care of his critically-acclaimed debut album All Hell. At once both foreign and familiar, Daughn’s music is immediately striking – through the use of dusty thrift-store records and cutting edge technology, Daughn shook the ghosts out of scratchy Christian folk records and baptized them as fierce Americana with his booming baritone voice. His songs are as frequently tender as they are prurient, as hopeful as they are brimming with despair. It’s on Daughn’s second album and Sub Pop debut, Me Moan, that he truly reveals himself to the world. If All Hell was a gritty black-and-white movie, Me Moan is a widescreen IMAX 3D extravaganza. While the roots of sample-based music remain, these songs are performed live, lushly detailed and richly orchestrated. To name but a small selection, live drums, pedal steel, horns, house strings, bagpipes and organs appear on this record, but never does it feel over-stuffed – every instrument or melody is perfectly in place. It’s worth noting that guitarists John Baizley (of Baroness) and Jim Elkington (of Brokeback) provide stunning performances on the record.

THE DELOREANS are one of Louisville’s most accomplished groups, with two albums to their credit, Love Outrageous and American Craze. The latter, released in 2011, is “not only executed with care, but filled with fun, contagious, hook-riddled songs” — Steve Morgan, Louisville Music News.

Don’t lose control — dig BLUES CONTROL! Following a circular path in order to access the unknown, Russ and Lea nab chaos in a plastic cup and crush rock into diamonds, or something that looks like them anyway. Valley ho! Their new record, Valley Tangents, “is like drugs for your ears.”

Watch the video for BLUES CONTROL‘s “Iron Pigs” from Drag City Limits here:

RAW THUG is the brainchild of one Arsenio Zigonoto, recently profiled in Louisville’s LEO Weekly 2012 People Issue here: http://leoweekly.com/news/2012-people-issue-arsenio-zignoto. Needless to say, he is one of Louisville’s musical treasures. To quote:

He once played a plastic bag at a show — “There were lots of drums and it sounded like … an evening gown amongst the chaos” — and has shared his sounds with bands like Sapat, Softcheque, his own RAW THUG moniker, and most recently Mindhorn, amongst countless other sit-ins and randomness.
