Gawain and the Green Knight release "King Louis" music video

Sometimes you walk into an open mic or a small music venue in New York and hear something that makes you go, "Well, I've never heard that sound before." Gawain and the Green Knight fit that bill. Named after a late 14th-century chivalric romance story, the duo of Alexia Antoniou and Mike O'Malley craft literary folk songs which blend history, literature, and other intellectual pursuits with the usual songwriting themes of anxiety, self-doubt, and desire. Take the band's song "King Louis", a track about fearing what your crush might say behind your back. However -- as Antoniou shows in the just-released music video -- the song is also about the titular infamous French ruler, who feared court gossip so much that he kept all of his nobles under his eye. Watch the music video for "King Louis" and see Antoniou decked out in full Louis XIV costume, tearing her wig off as the fear becomes too much to bear. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "Observatories" - Jeff Zeigler & Dash Lewis

“Observatories” is the latest collaboration between Jeff Zeigler (Valley Exit, Inlets, Arc in Round) & Dash Lewis (Gardener). Synth-fueled atmospherics envelope as one explores a pensive, pacifying state. The rhythmic, percussive motion steadies as the soft, bright touches of keys accent. Take it all in - just a little somethin' to help ease ya into your day. You can also find them opening for Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore this Monday, April 29 at Johnny Brenda's.





New Body Meat Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Body Meat is the musical alias of Christopher Taylor, whose newest release Truck Music represents a radical departure in vision from their earlier rock-oriented works. Backed by an evolving cast of players, the most recent iteration of the project features Mathew Anderegg on percussion. The constant volley of rhythmic samples and synths hammer the listener with the driving force of post-punk played out through an R&B lens. On the whole, Truck Music is more groove than grind - the momentum behind each track favors danceability over thrashing. Recordings like “No Garden” eek out traces of James Blake’s early works, reconfiguring sounds from the post-dub movement of the early 2010’s into music that is absolutely refreshing. Truck Music feels progressive, in that it is creatively expansive with little regard for boundaries, and yet the new direction feels wholly intuitive and natural.

Gina Biver's “Mirror” is 2spooky

The Fuse Ensemble achieves full spookiness on “Mirror” from The Music of Gina Biver. The track features a discordant string/piano thing with Gina Biver intoning, “something looks back each time I move, oh demon mask, sad, turned down mouth” from American poet Colette Inez's poem “Empress in the Mirror.” In all, the creative mixing and pleasantly random improvisation is able to get the spooky sound, or as the liner notes put it, “awakening new shapes and realities while the repetitive nature of the Biver’s electric guitar maintains an underlying continuing, eternal presence.”

I could see some cool audio/visual collab on this one.
