Sam Amidon :: The Following Mountain

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Sam Amidon possesses the traits of an archetypal American songster: fiddle and banjo mastery, as well as a lifetime spent among his repertoire of deeply rooted folksongs. His interpretations of traditional tunes and ballads are often expansive reworks that set his singular voice and deft accompaniment amidst a frontier of harmonically rich orchestrations or a […]

Welcome to Aquarium Drunkard’s recurring Transmissions podcast. Today, we finish our mini-series in collaboration with the folks at Mexican Summer. In March, AD’s Jason P.

Tonstartssbandht, the Orlando-based duo of brothers Andy and Edwin White, return with a new studio lp, Sorcerer, due next month via the ever-evolving Mexican Summer label.

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Always on a tear, Ty Segall has a new self-titled record out. Segall’s tireless stream of releases means he and his rotating gaggle of shred-heads never linger too long on any one strain of blissed out fuzz rock. Ty has set aside the freaky drooling baby persona from last year’s Emotional Mugger and returned to the rich, […]

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Rock Pool is an extension of the madcap musical world of Le Bon’s last record, Crab Day. She calls these songs the “killed darlings” of that studio session, in which she conjured the ritual tunes for an absurdist holiday of the mind, her “crab day.” The sound is playful: wild fun in constant danger of unraveling, or […]

Cass McCombs :: Mangy Love

Friday, September 16th, 2016

“Oh, please tell me you academics, how do you wake up from a non-dream?” That impossible question is one of many loosed by Cass McCombs on his latest album, Mangy Love. It appears about half way through opening track, “Bum, Bum, Bum,” a nuanced lament about institutionalized and violent racism, built on a smoldering, descending […]
