Yellowcard’s Third Album, Paper Walls, Out Now

(January 15th, 2008 — New York, NY) — Breakout alt-rockers Yellowcard will release a digital live album, entitled Live From Las Vegas At the Palms, exclusively though the iTunes Store beginning January 22nd, 2008. Recorded in October at Las Vegas’ renowned Palms Casino Resort’s intimate Pearl Concert Theater, where the farthest seating is just 120 feet from the stage, the album captures the Jacksonville, FL, quartet’s fiery blend of rock, punk, and classical at its most explosive best.

“We were honored to record Live From Las Vegas At the Palms for iTunes and we’re really proud of the record,” said frontman Ryan Key.

Live From Las Vegas features five tracks from Yellowcard’s current album Paper Walls (which debuted at Number 13 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart, as well as at Number 3 on iTunes’ album chart), including the lead-off single “Light Up the Sky.” The live album also features Yellowcard’s previous singles “Way Away,” “Ocean Avenue,” and “Only One,” from the band’s double-platinum 2003 Capitol Records’ debut Ocean Avenue, as well as “Lights and Sounds” and “Rough Landing, Holly,” from their 2006 gold album Lights and Sounds.

Yellowcard, which is vocalist/guitarist Ryan Key, violinist/vocalist Sean Mackin, guitarist Ryan Mendez, and drummer Longineu “LP” Parsons III, have been on the road since the July release of Paper Walls, including a summer stint on the 2007 Vans Warped Tour, a winter tour supporting Linkin Park in Japan and recently played for U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf as part of a USO (United Service Organizations) entertainment tour. On March 7th they will launch a headlining tour of the U.S. with support from MxPx, Play Radio Play, and Treaty of Paris. Yellowcard will perform an acoustic set with the other bands performing plugged-in.

Anyone who purchases Live From Las Vegas at the Palms in its first week of release (from January 22nd to January 28th) will also receive a code for Ticketmaster enabling the purchase of up to four tickets for the tour on January 30th before they go on sale to the public on February 2nd.

The sampling power couple Oh Astro reveals sources. Highly addictive, seizure inducing Illegal Art album Champions of Wonder out now.

The sampling power couple Oh Astro reveals sources. Highly addictive, seizure inducing Illegal Art album Champions of Wonder out now.

Married duo Jane Dowe and Hank Hofler are both rooted firmly in experimental music, but with the Oh Astro project they continue their move towards odd interpretations of popular forms. Club music, children’s songs, and fragmented samples of pop/rock all intersect on their first full-length album, Champions of Wonder, under the Oh Astro banner.

As with Dowe and Hofler’s Illegal Art label mate, Girl Talk, Oh Astro incorporates a multitude of samples into its intricate sonic blanket. Get out your copy of Champions of Wonder or stream the record here and follow along this list of sources.

Champions of Wonder Sample Sources (Stream):

01. “Snow Queen” – Ratatat “Desert Eagle” and Lily Allen “Everything Is Wonderful”

02. “Hello Fuji Boy” – Hot Chip “Boy From School,” Fujiya & Miyagi “Ankle Injuries,” and Lionel Richie “Hello”

03. “Lucy Sees The Moon” – Lucy (our daughter) sings the lyrics to children’s song “I See The Moon” and it is filtered through Deanna Durbin “Amapola” and Bing Crosby “If I Had My Way”

04. “Candy Sun Smiles” – Busdriver “Sun Shower,” Gnarls Barkley “Gone Daddy Gone,” and Electronic “Getting Away With It”

05. “Empty Air” – only source is Jim O’Rourke “Good Times”

06. “Xanadu” – Jane Dowe sings the lyrics to “Xanadu” in sync with the original song (originally sung by Olivia Newton John with music by Electric Light Orchestra) filtered through Electronic “Get The Message” (strumming guitar intro) and Xiu Xiu “Bishop, CA”. Background contains samples from Pan Tone “Gringo Grinder” and The Killers “Somebody Told Me” (guitar pluck).

07. “Journey To The Center” – Remix of ROC “Journey to the Center of Brixton” (authorized), along with additional drum parts from Stefen Robinson (aka Yea Big).

08. “Itch Box” – Remix of Yea Big “Please Die, and Leave Me Alone” (authorized), which samples vocals from a chain-gang chant from the film Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? Also contains vocal sample from the ROC track, additional drum parts from Stefen Robinson and a synthesized harmonic progression from Tristan Hansen (a student of mine).

09. “Robot Love I Love You” – Ella (our daughter) sings her own lyric filtered through the Japanese children’s song “Inu No Omawarisan” as recorded on the compilation Doikono Douyou.

10. “Quiet Mouth” – only source is Sufjan Stevens “John Wayne Gacy, Jr.”

11. “Pet Apples” – only source is The Apples In Stereo “About Your Fame”

More about Oh Astro:

Married duo Jane Dowe and Hank Hofler are both rooted firmly in experimental music, but with the Oh Astro project they continue their move towards odd interpretations of popular forms. Club music, children’s songs, and fragmented samples of pop/rock all intersect on their first full-length album, Champions of Wonder, under the Oh Astro banner.

Jane Dowe entered the international electronic music scene in 1998 on two critical CD releases, Institutional Collaborative on Mille Plateaux, and Deconstructing Beck on Illegal Art. On Institutional Collaborative, Dowe and Terre Thaemlitz created abstract music that was described as a “table-tennis mixing game with ‘lounge’ and ambient soundclips” (The Wire). Dowe resurfaced in 2005 on Illegal Art with the debut Oh Astro mini-album, Hello World, which was hailed as “funky and pretty, Hello World’s bite-sized samples concoct a weird pop universe” (CMJ New Music Monthly). While Hank Hofler peripherally contributed to the project, it wasn’t until after Hello World that he became significant collaborator in Oh Astro. Besides creating music Dowe has also done installations in galleries internationally and codes idiosyncratic software for her various projects.

Hank Hofler’s first performances were in Japan as part of the live electronic improvisation scene from 1998-2001, playing shows with Japanese artists such as Otomo Yoshihide, Merzbow, Ikue Mori, and Sawako. As Dowe was too shy for live events, Hank’s earliest shows were actually performing as “Jane Dowe” (further confusing the identity of the pseudononymous Dowe). As he developed his own reputation, Hofler began to be billed under his own name, began street performing in Tokyo, and later also took on the live shows for Oh Astro. As a tenure-track professor, Hofler currently teaches in an Arts Technology program at Illinois State University. Both Hofler and Dowe hold advanced degrees from prestigious institutions such as Dartmouth College and Keio Univeristy (Japan), but have strong reservations about the esoteric qualities of academic art/music.

The purposely-pixilated digipak artwork for Champions of Wonder was created by the internationally known producer/artist Terre Thaemlitz utilizing illustrations by Aiko Tsuji. The physical release also contains surround sound mixes of the first three tracks by Aaron Paolucci (who also mastered the stereo mixes) that can be played on a computer connected to a 5.1 sound system.

One of the common techniques on Champions of Wonder is the manipulation of vocals by spectral software that is coded by Dowe and long-time mentor Christopher Penrose. Even the more experimental or ambient tracks contain ghostly sounds of vocals that have been stripped from their original context and placed into the pulsating electronic world of Oh Astro. The other common practice on the album is that every sound, with the exception of some of the vocals, is sampled from pre-existing recordings. The types of music sampled range from top 40 songs to indie hipster music to the obscure. In the end, it’s more about what is done with the sample than what was originally sampled.

With this release Illegal Art continues to challenge the restrictions of copyright as perceived by the larger music industry. The uniqueness of Oh Astro, along with other artists on the label (Girl Talk, Realistic, Steinski, P. Miles Bryson, Wobbly, Christopher Penrose, etc.), further illustrates that sample-based music is strikingly some of the most original, innovative, and exciting music being made in the 21st century. Illegal Art claims Fair Use for all of its releases and has professional legal counsel nearby if needed.

Zune Arts Features Ro Rao and The Aliens in Laika

Zune Arts Features Ro Rao and The Aliens in “Laika”

Zune announces the release of the next video in the Zune Arts series entitled “Laika”, which brings together the New York based director Ro Rao and the sounds from the Scottish band The Aliens.

Set fifty years ago, Russia launches a rocket manned by a dog into space and soon loses contact with the vessel. The character dog named “Laika” soon discovers a dog utopia filled with many dog treasures, but quickly realizes that these treasures are worthless without her friends. An endearing, intergalactic tale at just how far one will go to share with friends, the film concludes with a grand gesture of friendship -sharing dog bones. The film is set to the extravagant, acid-drenched pop of “I Am the Unknown,” a track from the 2007 full-length Astronomy for Dogs by The Aliens, a band that evolved from the critically acclaimed Beta Band. The soundtrack completes the artistic vision of Ro Rao, whose previous work with Ugly Pictures has been honored at a dozen of film festivals including the Tribeca Film Festival, D&AD and Annecy, and has been written up in Creativity, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone. The new video follows in the footsteps of other creative artist collaborations which have included Cary Godbey and Maps, SSSR and M Ward, and againstallodds and The Deadly Syndrome.

What is a funplex? The B-52s expose seedy scenes on title track of new album ‘Funplex’ out on 3/25 Astralwerks

WHAT IS A FUNPLEX? THE B-52S EXPOSE SEEDY SCENES ON TITLE TRACK OF NEW ALBUM ‘FUNPLEX’ (OUT 3/25 ON ASTRALWERKS)

30 years and a few blocks from the location of their first performance on Valentine’s Day 1977, The B-52s began recording a new album in their hometown of Athens, Georgia. The B-52s, always considered a band ahead of their time, deliver music on ‘Funplex’ (out 3/25 on Astralwerks) that fits in seamlessly with their high-spirited shows as well as any indie blog playlist. Songs like “Pump,” “Love in The Year 300,” “Dancing Now” and “Keep This Party Going On” and the propulsive title track and first single, “Funplex,” (set for digital release on January 29th) are instantly recognizable as prime, yet contemporary B-52s.

funplex:
1) a colloquial word used in the Southern part of the US meaning mall or shopping complex
2) forty nine minutes and fourteen second of electronic fused rock, fuzz guitars, dance inducing drum beats, pristine harmonies, raw energy and cutting and cunning lyrics

Wooden Shjips debut album receives high praise in Rolling Stone, Harp, Paste, SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, et al., San Francisco psjch-rock quartet to play All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by Pitchfork in 2008.

Wooden Shjips debut album receives high praise in Rolling Stone, Harp, Paste, SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, et al., San Francisco psjch-rock quartet to play All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by Pitchfork in 2008.

“Tight-wound repeato psych guitar raunch with spoony (maybe even imaginary) percussion, surprisingly Rev-like keys, and vocals buried under burning driftwood.” — Byron Coley, The Wire

“Wooden Shjips (not a typo) are from San Francisco, but the concentrated ferocity of the freakouts on their two very-underground releases — a white-label ten-inch EP (the band gave away the first 300 copies) and a clear-vinyl single (“Dance, California”) — arrives via the Seventies Germanic-guitar lunacy of Guru Guru and the confrontational repetition of VU.” – David Fricke, Rolling Stone

With glowing endorsements from legendary critics like David Fricke (Rolling Stone) and Byron Coley (The Wire, Forced Exposure, Arthur, et al) as well as visionary labels Holy Mountain and Sub Pop, San Francisco’s highly-touted garage-drone group Wooden Shjips (that’s not a typo) has, er, docked on many writers’ picks for best album of 2007 and earned high praise from Rolling Stone — including a nod from Fricke in the mag’s Top 50 Albums of 2007 issue — Harp, Paste, SF Bay Guardian (winning a “Goldie” award in its “Best of the Bay” 2007 issue) and SF Weekly (naming the album in its picks for Best CDs of 2007.)

Wooden Shjips’ self-titled psjchedelic adventure on the Holy Mountain label (Om, Lesbian, Six Organs of Admittance) followed quickly on the heels of the band’s Sub Pop single and has since earned many accolades in the months since its October release.

Wooden Shjips is a vital and refreshingly inspired quartet playing loud rock ‘n’ roll in a style heavily influenced by the experimentalism of psychedelia, classical minimalism and garage rock excess. Started as an experiment in rhythmic primitivism and group improvisation, the current lineup brings a more structured rock approach to its performances, utilizing a traditional lineup of drums (Omar Ahsanuddin), bass (Dusty Jermier), organ (Nash Whalen), guitar (Erik “Ripley” Johnson) and vocals.

Its songs sound something akin to the icy garage rock of early Echo & The Bunnymen crossed with the sun-bleached tremolo-punk of The Scientists. There are hints of krautrock, the trance-inducing organ haze of Suicide, Deerhunter style dance-drone, classic desert-fried garage psych and the mysterious, obscure Japanese lysergic-rock band Les Rallizes Denudes all mixed into one explosive whole on Wooden Shjips debut.

The experience of Wooden Shjips has been equated to that of the Japanese phenomenon called maboroshi, which is somewhat similar to seeing a mirage or hallucinating in time. In the context of imagination/dreams, maboroshi is attributed to past occurrences and can take on a meaning like “phantoms.” The group’s songs seem to exist in a dream state in which anything is possible.

Wooden Shjips released two acclaimed records in 2006, beginning early in the year with the self-released 10” EP Shrinking Moon for You. The record quickly sold-out, after capturing the attention of well-regarded tastemakers, such as Tom Lax and Byron Coley, who penned rave reviews on Siltblog and in The Wire magazine, respectively. A 7-inch single followed on the Sick Thirst label, and received similar praise from music bloggers, as well as from veteran scribe David Fricke in Rolling Stone.

The band has launched three new releases in 2007: the LP/CD for Holy Mountain, a 7-inch for Sub Pop and a 7-inch for Pollymaggoo Records. They played at NoisePop 2007 with Roky Erickson in March, as well as playing packed showcases at the SXSW Music conference in Austin, TX in March and CMJ Music Marathon in New York City in October.

An ambitious band of high school students, Please Quiet Ourselves offers irresistible push-your-buttons-in-just-the-right-way pop on Mushpot debut.

An ambitious band of high school students, Please Quiet Ourselves offers irresistible push-your-buttons-in-just-the-right-way pop on Mushpot debut.

Effervescent acoustic-guitar-clad Jojo Brandel easily handles on-stage banter well, a skill with which most seasoned artists struggle. Dubbed the California bay area’s “Baby Modest Mouse”, it is impressive how Brandel brought together seven other talented 15 to 16-year-old high schoolers to create a textured blanket of sound, at times, akin to that of Broken Social Scene.

Please Quiet Ourselves started as an eighth grade film project soundtrack. Rather than steal a collage of trendy and popular songs, Brandel decided to create his own. Sounds ranged from scrambled noise rock to covers of pieces on the Black Orpheus soundtrack. End product: “Color Chart,” a short pop song. Brandel liked the idea of the song so much that he invited a bunch of friends from school to fill the spaces in between. Compositions are spilled out in a somewhat off-key, clumsy freak-pop manner with bongos, xylophone, melodicas and several acoustic guitars.

In the 2006, Elisa Hough (Brandel’s cousin), scheduled Please Quiet Ourselves for a live studio slot at KDVS in Davis, CA. Hough passed a tape of rough recordings and MySpace information to Mushpot Records owner Jenn de la Vega. Taken completely by the potential and maturity of the music (and assuming Brandel was in college), de la Vega asked Brandel about his studies at Berkeley. He replied,

“Haha…the thing about ‘studying…’ We are in fact in Berkeley — I’m surprised Elisa didn’t tell you this — but umm, we are in high school. I’m only 13 and Eli is 15… Haha, I hope that doesn’t change anything!”

Please Quiet Ourselves’ lineup has since fattened considerably and currently consists of guitarist/vocalist Jojo Brandel, drummer Eli Lyons and guitarist Haran Stern of So Many Clouds, guitarist Adam Becker of O Lucky Man, Max Burstein of Mexico and The Jank, violinist Simeon Farwell-Miller, bassist Maddie Tien, and vocalist Bryce Enright. Proud parents carted them between Berkeley and Davis to record at Evan Hart’s (Buildings Breeding) Psychedelic Hearts garage studio. Please Quiet Ourselves offers irresistible push-your-buttons-in-just-the-right-way indie pop rooted in the single “Color Chart”.

“Mushpot should be proud of their most recent release, because it balances the equation of creativity and listenability in all ways respectable. Please Quiet Ourselves lays down fun proggy riffs and almost punk-based progressions, but translates to a semi-polished pop rock product. On the contrary, their tendency to traverse into somber slowdowns in songs like ‘Minors vs. Majors’ rely on Modest Mouse’s Building Nothing Out of Something era. Vocalist and lead guitar player Jojo Brandel puts forward obvious talent on his ax in songs like “I Don’t Care,” where his techy licks could just go on forever. Please Quiet Ourselves accomplishes a lot in such little time: invoking the curiosity like that of Pavement, the angst of early Yo La Tengo and the togetherness of the Arts & Crafts family. If no other term would work, indie rock is what it is – ambitious and jovial.” – Nicole Browner, California Aggie
