    Haunted House returns

    January 25, 2015

    Wish we could have made it: return of Haunted House (Loren Connors, Suzanne Langille, Andrew Burnes and Neel Murgai) last night in lower Manhattan at Sugarcube as part of Northern Spy's five-year anniversary celebration. Those lucky to attend reported "Frankie and Johnny" and "Blue Ghost Blues" were, as expected, monstrous live. Photo by Erstwhile Records' Jon Abbey.

    The "ass kicking" of Millions and Sauter

    December 17, 2014

    Not much else to add cause Phil Freeman at Burning Ambulance nails down Kid Millions & Jim Sauter's Fountain as "one of the more ass-kicking records of the year." We think that proclamation extends into 2015 too. Read more here.

  • Loren Connors & Keiji Haino go transatlantic for "Joan of Arc"

    November 17, 2014

    This morning Loren Connors performed with Keiji Haino in a rare transatlantic event. Keiji was at Shibuya in Tokyo, Japan. Loren was at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn at 5:30 a.m. Together they created an improvised soundtrack to Carl Theodor Dreyer's1928 silent classic "The Passion of Joan of Arc" that was being shown to the audience at Shibuya. Thanks to our friends at Northern Spy for posting brief, wondrous taste...

    Fountain - it's on!

    November 7, 2014

    Now is the time to preorder Fountain, the blasted collab of drummer Kid Millions and saxophonist Jim Sauter. The LP is out worldwide Dec. 2nd. Over at the NPR's All Songs Considered blog, Lars Gotrich debuted the track "Game Jump" and aptly described it as:

    "Sauter issues a brief warning that sounds something like a zombie-infested cruise ship bellowing its final notes before it plummets into a blood-freezing ocean. Then it's on. Sauter stabs at his feedback-ridden sax while Millions enters a manic headspace with his hydra-armed drum work ... This is improvised mayhem, but it seems to grin from ear to ear."

    Kid Millions on Whiplash, drumming

    October 24, 2014

    "Music is not about trying to be the Average musician who ever lived. It's not about idealizing a friendless, obsessive, tortured existence for something as abstracted and devoid of joy as competition. It's about playing music with people -- finding a community and truly connecting with other people. Yes, some of that path requires that you spend a lot of time by yourself, practicing. But the goal is never to be Charlie Parker or 'one of the greats.' That's some sophomoric academy shit" -- so proclaims Kid Millions in this great interview over at The Talkhouse about the jazz film Whiplash and drumming. Read full piece here.
