Check ‘em out in the meantime…
I’m psyched to be welcoming the Brooklyn Raga Association to this week’s Beyond Beyond is Beyond show! This will be a first in the East Village Radio studio. EVR has never had a raga group play live, so get ready for some killer sitar, tampura, tabla jammin’ over the internet airwaves on Thursday at noon (ET).
And in the meantime, get familiar by downloading Brooklyn Raga Association’s awesome album for free over at Bandcamp.
I’m very psyched to welcome the awesome Swedish pop-psychsters, La Fleur Fatale to Beyond Beyond is Beyond on Thursday! I’ve been diggin’ these cats for a couple years now and awaiting the time that they made their first venture to these here United States.
And now is the time. As you can see from the flier, BBiB is the very first performance that they’ll do in America. So be sure to tune in Thursday at noon eastern to East Village Radio…on the great new popup player. Then come out to Perfect Prescription at Shea Stadium that night and see their first full U.S. live show ever…and catch me DJ’ing there too. Lots of fun to be had on a Thursday! See ya’s then.
Rockin’ Detroiters, The Sights have a great new record on Alive Naturalsound Records called Most of What Follows Is True. And they’re gonna be at Brooklyn’s Bell House Friday night (2/18) with the Reigning Sound!
But prior to that, they’ll stop by for a live session and a chat on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio. So come along on Thursday at noon eastern and see…I mean hear… The Sights!
It was a breath of fresh air when I recently heard Fergus & Geronimo’s brand-new album Unlearn, released this month on Hardly Art. It’s almost impossible to compare them to other contemporary groups because they seem to avoid being pinned down. That’s probably what I dig. Well, that and the killer songs that run the gamut from Zappa-inspired pop-psych to classic soul and doo-wop (and a bunch of goodies in between)!
And guess what? They’re gonna perform live on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on Thursday! I think we can definitely expect some fun from these cats. So tune in from noon to 2pm ET on Thursday to East Village Radio and come play with us.
Get a taste of Fergus & Geronimo’s ‘Powerful Lovin” right here…
And check them out in New York on these dates:
- Feb 23: MONSTER ISLAND w/ Air Waves
I’m happy to welcome the Strangers Family Band to Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio this Thursday (noon-2pm ET). They are one of the best new psychedelic acts out there these days, along with contemporaries Mondo Drag, Sleepy Sun, Black Angels and Tame Impala. We’ll be chatting and spinning songs from their awesome EP…as well as some brand-new unreleased stuff.
If you haven’t heard them yet, go grab their EP for free right now at Bandcamp!
And then be sure to see them (also for free) at Bruar Falls on Friday, along with the amazing Black Hollies, Runaway Suns, and Julian of Perfect Prescription deejaying. Fuck yeah!
Hey there, Beyonders!
I’m happy to report that we will have a kickass live performance from a kickass new band called The Main Street Gospel, in the EVR booth on Beyond Beyond is Beyond this Thursday. Their beautifully fuzzed-out classic rock style shines bright on their Tee Pee Records debut, Love Will Have Her Revenge. Dig ‘I Won’t Be Stayin” below…
Here’s a great quick intro to the band from Dan Epstein at Shockhound (where you can also download the free mp3):
Here at ShockHound, the only thing we love more than getting turned on to killer new music is when we can turn you on to it before anyone else does.
Which is why we’re so stoked to present the world premiere of “I Won’t Be Stayin’,” a fuzz-caked track from Love Will Have Her Revenge, the forthcoming full-length debut by the Main Street Gospel. Lodged somewhere between the bluesy scuzz of the Black Keys and the haunted highway ramblings of Neil Young, “I Won’t Be Stayin’” is one of those rare cuts that sounds both oddly familiar and intriguingly fresh. And you can only download it for FREE from ShockHound, baby!
Formed in Columbus, Ohio in 2005 by former Brian Jonestown Massacre tambourine shaker Barry Dean (vocals, guitar), Ryan “Tito” Ida (bass) and Adam Scoppa (drums), the Main Street Gospel’s brand of “mystic trip-rock” caught the ear of fellow bearded Ohioan (and Black Keys guitarist) Dan Auerbach, who produced and pressed up a couple of their songs on an indie seven-inch back in 2008. One thing led to another, and the band signed to Tee Pee Records early this year. Love Will Have Her Revenge, a wonderful album which touches upon everything from Byrds-y country rock to Spiritualized-type psychedelic mantras, will drop June 29.
But hey, you don’t need to wait until then to bathe in the cosmic vibes of the Main Street Gospel. Just click on the link above, and grab that free MP3 before it’s gone like a late spring breeze.
