Howlin Rain Embarks On Power-Tour

You guessed it. The Howlin Rain bros are on the path to destruction with a three month trek through North America and straight through Europe. Supporting its forthcoming long-player Magnificent Fiend (Birdman/American), the band will be headlining these dates so if you showed up a little too late to the Rain's shows supporting Black Mountain, now is your chance to experience the the new wave of good vibes and killer times. Oh, and if you can't wait until the boys get to your respective town, you can pre-order the album from Insound and get 10% off. Magnificent!

The Modey Lemon: How Sweet Life Is



Besides having a copy of Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite SIGNED BY OLATUNJI sent to my home on a Saturday afternoon (thank you, Geoffery Weiss), nothing is finer than when a brandly new completed record shows up at the Birdman Offices from one of our bands. Wrapped up and ready for manufacture. Case in point: this week we received the new one from our Pittsburgh friends, The Modey Lemon. The name of the record (now it shall be revealed): SEASON OF SWEETS coming longgggggg off of the heals of 2006’s Curious City. For the lucky few who have seen them live over the last year, the new material is crushing: adding Krautrock into the mix of the grazy (great and crazy) fuzzy furry freak sounds already addressed (we all know the genius beats of Quattrone).

I was lucky enough to debut the song "MILK MOUSTACHE" yesterday on the fabulous PIRATE CAT RADIO. Great station. It all went down during Mister Odom’s Bottomless Pit and you can hear it right here (my part of the show starts half way in). Listen for debuts from Apache and R L Boyce too.
