    Tyler Damon In Vietnam

    January 6, 2017

    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.

  • Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon Live at 'First Thursday'

    November 5, 2016

    "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

  • Loren Connors' 'Departing' Series Hits Six

    October 10, 2016

    It's another chapter in Loren Connors' ongoing The Departing of a Dream vision. Just months after reviving it from a ten-year hiatus with the release of Volume V -- Loren Connors issues Volume VI, another movement of saturated guitar tones, dissonance and impermanence.

    "Gone are the slow-moving bass lines and the identifiable pedal-craft of the first go-around. What’s left is the sound of Connors alone in a room full of people, drawing out gradually fading tones and percussive echoes. Each note does the work of a Webernian orchestral passage, each interval is a look into the grave, and the distant chatter of the crowd on this live recording seems impossibly far away" -- Bill Meyer, Still Single

    The 10-inch record in out Oct. 14 in an edition of 550 copies with cover art by Connors.

    Dow Jones and The Industrials Return

    September 19, 2016

    It happened. Dow Jones and the Industrials reformed for three shows in Indiana this past weekend to celebrate the release of the long-awaited Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981 anthology. 

    In short -- they killed it. 

    Original members Greg Horn and Chris Clark were joined by Vess Ruhtenberg on keyboards/synths and drummer Mike Doskocil. Mr. Science made apperances by a video link to sing his twisted anthem "Latent Psychosis" during two of the performances. 

    Thanks to fans throughout Indiana, the Midwest, Canada, New York and beyond who made the trek. Dow Jones shared the stage with both versions of the Gizmos -- the original 1976 version and the 1979 version -- in Bloomington on Sept. 17 for an epic show.
