what’s your favorite kind of dog? mine is a doctor - DR.DOG
“After a one-album sojourn away from their band-built recording studio Philadelphias Dr. Dog returned home to Meth Beach to self-produce their latest collection of gloriously ramshackle rock n roll reveries. Out February 7, Be The Void (Dr. Dogs second release on Anti-Records) showcases the critically adored bands renewed commitment to cultivating a stripped-down live sound. This record comes from our pushing toward a rawer, more powerful, somewhat jittery competence, explains guitarist-vocalist Scott McMicken. We drew a lot of inspiration from soul music and the Rolling Stones and the Velvet Underground music thats got its roots in live expression rather than that studio-perfected sort of vibe.” - GV

With a title like Time To Die, you might think the Dodos’ third disc is their ‘mature album,’ a deadly serious undertaking punctuated with string sections and synths. Nice try kid, but you’ve got it all wrong. While indie rock’s go-to guy, Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Fleet Foxes, The Shins), hopped behind the boards this time, the Dodos’ wildly percussive style is still centered around two key elements: the punchy percussion of Logan Kroeber and the Fahey-infused finger-picking of frontman Meric Long. Oh sure, you’ll hear a horn blast here and there, but it’s never enough to distract you from the group’s riffs and rolls.
Bright Eyes will release The People’s Key on February 15th 2011 on Saddle Creek. The People’s Key the band’s seventh studio album - is the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2007’s acclaimed Cassadaga. In support of the album Bright Eyes will begin their US tour in March of 2011.
Since 2006 the once revolving cast of Bright Eyes players has settled around permanent members Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott, with additional musicians joining them in the studio and on tour. Fully realized and bursting with charisma, The People’s Key is an assured and accomplished album, artfully arranged and filled with the engaging and mesmeric songwriting for which Oberst is renowned. Recorded in Omaha, Nebraska, at the band’s own ARC Studios, The People’s Key was produced by Mike Mogis and engineered by Mogis and Andy LeMaster.
I (pronounced “Zion Eye”) are a hip hop duo from Oakland, California. The duo consists of producer and DJ, AmpLive and emcee Zumbi. The two are highly respected and acclaimed underground artists, famous for Amp’s futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and Zumbi’s poetic, positive and socially conscious lyrics.
The Grouch always wanted to make beats since he first heard about this music called hip-hop. His dad played keys and Grouch felt music was inside him also, but he hadn’t planned on being an MC. Being from Oakland, Grouch grew up on the local heroes like Digital Underground, Too Short, Toni, Tony, Tone, and many others. Around 91’/92’ Del and the Hiero crew were first starting to make noise in the bay and it was then that Grouch felt he could really make something out of this music thing. He had a friend who rapped and he convinced Grouch to start writing/rapping in 94’. He met the Mystik Journeymen soon after and they schooled Grouch on the independent hustle. From this moment, Grouch knew it was on. Grouch’s first show as an MC was in 1995, it was at one the Journeymen’s “Broke Ass” something shows in East Oakland. Grouch performed under his real name and the crowd showed him much love, which he says is the main reason he stuck with making music. Grouch’s music influences include all the hip-hop greats from LL Cool J to the Beastie Boys along with the Bay Area classics and Jazz, Rock, and Soul music. Grouch has always taken the independent route and has done everything himself along the way, a fact he takes great pride in. Grouch’s latest project, The Grouch & Eligh “No More Greener Grasses” is available now.
Steve Ignorant is a singer and artist. He co-founded the anarcho-punk band Crass with Penny Rimbaud in 1977. After Crass stopped performing in 1984, he has worked with other groups includingConflict, Schwartzeneggar, The Stratford Mercenaries, Current 93 (under the name Stephen Intelligent), US punk bandThought Crime, as well as being an occasional solo performer.
In 2010 Ignorant announced plans to do a tour called The Last Supper, performing Crass songs from the period 1977-1982 with largely the same band that performed with him at Shepherd’s Bush, including Gizz Butt, Bob Butler and Spike Smith. In August 2010 Steve and Penny Rimbaud took to the stage together to be interviewed by John Robb on the literacy stage at the Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, England where they informed the large crowd that Penny has now given Steve his blessing to perform Crass material live. - wikipedia
