    New Single From Loren And Suzanne

    January 11, 2016

    It's been awhile since Loren Connors & Suzanne Langille released anything as a duo -- sure, there was the Haunted House band album from a few years ago, but, that's a totally different dynamic. Now, thankfully, the Belgium label Tanuki just issued the "Strong & Foolish Heart" b/w "Blue Ghost Blues" 7-inch single. It was recorded live at the 2013 Counterflows Festival in Glasgow, Scotland and sounds fantastic. Loren's contemporary abstraction style gives a different feel to these familiar songs as Suzanne's always powerful, soulful bellow anchors each. But we've never heard a version of "Blue Ghost Blues" (aka Lonnie Johnson's "Haunted House" from 1960) like this. Loren's hair-raising replication of fluttering bat wings, as heard first on In Pittsburgh (1989), is transformed here into a slab of scree and feedback. Just 250 copies with three cover variations -- get at it.

    Akira Sakata and Chikamorachi are on a tour of Japan right now... when they are not telling everyone about the Flying Basket 2xLP, expect the trio to be performing with some heavies, such as dancer Min Tanaka (at Super Deluxe). Photo from Glenn Kotche.

  • MX-80 Wishes You a 'Nuke Free' Columbus Day

    October 12, 2015

    Another fantastic, spot-on single from the upcoming MX-80 Sound album -- we are not releasing it but can't wait to grip a copy. Not sure how long it's been since we heard Bruce Anderson, dare we say, shred out on the six-string like he does here but we're loving it. Damn. This will be the Bay Area combo's first album since FV issued 2005's We're An American Band.
