Fantastic collection of Mary Mazzacane's vocal recordings 1948-1974, out now on Recital Program -- edition of 115 LPs. Loren Connors' major, unheard influence. We released a brief piece of Mary's on the Night Through set in 2006. This collection is "seven haunting pieces, remastered from their original sources and published here for the first time. Trace the musical connection between mother and son, for the same grace and passion carries in their blood."

Our man Tyler Damon has spent the past few weeks touring Vietnam with John Dawson. The two have been soaking up the local food and underground music scene while critics the world over have proclaimed Both Will Escape -- the debut LP of Damon and Tashi Dorji -- as tops of 2016. They've been performing as Thee Open Sex and collaborating with a slew of string players in various cities. On Jan. 6 they performed at the Kafka Bookstore in Ho Chi Minh City (photo above).
Expect Damon and Dorji back on the road together this year.

"An ultra-special performance by solo percussionist Tyler Damon and avant-garde guitarist Tashi Dorji in the reverberated halls of the exquisite Grunwald Gallery, located on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, Indiana. This concert was part of IU's 'First Thursday' event series, and the dynamic precision between these two masterful musicians was a compelling addition, filling the minimalist white halls with reverberated audio cacophony." -- Deathwave TV
