The Italian Husbands first mass released album, on Panospria, is a banger. The albums first track “I take the last train every night.”, which is probably a great time to listen to this, starts off as a lo-fi mess before it transforms into an epic noise pop dirge, and the album continues less saucy, more bossy, but always leaving a stain on your shirt. One half Holzkopf and one half Gold Rush, it blends like a dropshot, a truly psychadelic combination. These lifemates are making music that throbs. The entire album is free for download, as is the enitre catalogue of Panospria. The boys, Jake Hardy and Trevor Rutley, recently graced the satge of The Ramshackle Day Parade, on October 22nd, stay tuned for the live recording of that, and beware of pictures floating around from that night.
Zebra Pulse is playing the last show ever at Savoy on Whyte!!!, also playing is Adam, Huckleberry, and the so-funny Jon Mick. Its this Sunday October 17th, so come on out….its FREE!!!!
We at the Ramshackle Day Parade are interested in reviewing and releasing albums and tracks, as well as booking shows. Please send your stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Phil Dickau released a new album Ocober 9, 2010. “Das Rheingold”, is an epic piece of minimalism (get it?), a sort of tribute, or remix you could say, of Richard Wagner’s prelude to “Das Rheingold“. Phil Dickau has made his tribute from only a single 8 second piece of the original, stretching it into a 4-part, hour long piece of pure beauty. In the words of Phil himself, “New Album => Download => Play => Listen => Fall Asleep.”
