THE LAST EXIT is the fifth studio album from Still Corners, which will be released on 22nd January 2021 on Wrecking Light Records. With the shimmering desert noir sound the band has become known for, THE LAST EXIT takes you on a hypnotic journey, one filled with dilapidated towns, mysterious shapes on the horizon, and long trips that blur the line between what’s there and not there. Greg says, “We found something out there in the desert – something in the vast landscapes that went on forever." THE LAST EXIT consists of eleven beautifully crafted songs with organic instrumentation, cl-toned guitar, spacious drums and the smoky croon of Tessa Murray.
Strange Weather is the experimental-pop project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sean Brennan. In their bones, the songs are timeless classics, embodied as romantic psychedelia – cinematic daydreams with echoes of Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, and Esquivel. Born outside Baltimore, Brennan began composing for chamber ensembles in his teens. After studying poetry at college, he began working at a studio in his hometown, producing music for television, radio, and theatre. In 2011, he relocated to Brooklyn where he currently lives with his wife.
ormed in 2017 by brothers Ben Ford and Michael Ford, Jr., Airpark is a Nashville-based duo whose songs explore the wide expanse of forward-thinking pop music. It's a sound that's both timely and timeless, rooted in sharp grooves one minute and dreamily rounded edges the next. Over the course of four EPs, the Fords have created music that's honest and ever-evolving, glued together by nuanced arrangements, an attention to melody, and the refusal to make the same record twice.
I'm mat and I make the twain music. Twain is just a name for an inner location that I am fascinated by. I think it's a place we all have in common. there are endless ways to try to describe it and twain is just my attempt. I love the feeling of the destination that evolves out of making records and playing shows. It's cumulative.
Outside of the twain, I've had the pleasure of contributing to records and performances by other artists, including - Big Thief, Courtney Marie Andrews, Buck Meek, Langhorne Slim, Spirit Family Reunion, the Deslondes, Westerman, Michael Nau, Low Anthem, the Killers and other sweet souls"
A restless musical explorer, Andrew Goldring’s fascination with the recording process borders on obsession. The Nashville based songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist has spent thousands of hours working behind a studio desk.
His 2019 release Fluorescent Memories was born from many collaborative sessions with friends. Letting go of any pre-conceived notions from his long history of past projects, he set out to create an album for listeners to get lost in from front to back.
Enlisting the help of California based producer Jon O'Brien to guide the creative process, he crafted his own brand of americana flavored indie rock, compounding emotional storytelling with an immersive soundscape.
John Andrews plays drums in Quilt, keyboards in Woods, and is also a regular member in Hand Habits and Cut Worms, among other groups. But he's also a songwriter and records his own folky pop rock under the auspices of John Andrews & The Yawns, which is mostly just him but also his friends. The third Yawns album, Cookbook, is set to be released May 14 via Woodsist. He's just released a lovely new song from the record, "River of Doubt," a song about lying awake with your thoughts, set to a a jazzy beat and delicately plucked guitars. The video, which John directed, mixes snapshots from work and play with some excellent hand-drawn animation. Check that out, along with a "show poster" for the single (in lieu of making them for shows), below.
Over the course of his extensive career as an influential songwriter, record producer, and studio owner, John Vanderslice has carved out a singular place for himself in the landscape of American indie rock. Raised in rural North Florida, Vanderslice was forced into piano lessons as a young child, and eventually picked up the guitar and started writing songs as a teen. His relationship to songwriting transformed at fourteen when he was given a Tascam 424 tape recorder—the process of using the tape deck as an instrument was a revelation for him, and he began to channel his early influences (Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, David Bowie) into freewheeling, intuitive explorations of song. After moving to San Francisco in 1989, Vanderslice made three records as a part of the experimental band MK Ultra, including the critically-acclaimed The Dream is Over.
JD Pinkus is an American bassist best known for his work with American punk band Butthole Surfers from1985 to 1994 and since the 2009 reunion. In 1990, he and Butthole Surfers' lead vocalist Gibby Haynes released Digital Dump, the only album from their psychedelic house music side project The Jackofficers. Upon leaving Butthole Surfers, Pinkus worked full-time with the Austin trio Daddy Longhead, which he had assembled during his waning months in the band, and which included longtime Atlanta associate Jimbo Young on guitar and Rey Washam on drums. Daddy Longhead retired after 10 years, leaving Pinkus free to explore other projects including Skinny Leonard and Areola 51. Pinkus played with Helios Creed on his albums NUGG: The Transport  and Activated Condition , and has also collaborated with Bad Livers frontman Danny Barnes several times in a live setting. JD Pinkus then co-founded the band Honky who went on to record five albums and are still currently active. Pinkus also performs with Pure Luck,who released a self-titled release in 2017 on Heavy Feather Records. He leaves his bass to play Banjo and Guitar in this project. On their 30th anniversary tour in 2013, Pinkus joined the Melvins in place of Jared Warren (on paternity leave) as well as performing with the opening Honky. He subsequently joined the Melvins full-time, touring with them in 2014 in support of the album Hold It In, which also featured Butthole Surfers founder Paul Leary, and again in 2015.
“Nocturnal reveries in the vein of minimal Radiohead compositions. Mark Kramer (Tender Mercy) has cultivated a distinctive singer/songwriter style, a black, evocative character, preferring the shadows to the light. His voice haunts the spare guitar notes like an utter specter. Songs like these play over the end credits of drama films that have faded to black following some sort of traumatic event. “ - Cassette Gods
Every band takes a different road to get where they are,
theirs was Chat Holley Road in Santa Rosa Beach. The founding members of psychedelic rock band Chat Holley are Zack Sloan (vocals/guitar), and Levi Ward (percussion). They have melded their love for music since highschool. Working at a local restaurant is where they met their founding bassist (Shane Huron). After some singles (Women Like Wine) and an EP (Homegrown), the original bass player decided to move on.
After taking a year to recover and discover their reality, Parker Watson (bass guitar/vocals) fell into the band as if it were destiny and Chat Holley was reborn again with a chemistry like never before.
Honest and unassuming, his humor will catch you off guard and leave you laughing days later. Rodney Norman is more than an entertainer, he is an experience. His insights are sometimes profound, sometimes absurd, but always hilarious. He’s the philosopher you didn’t know you needed, and he’s here to help. If you have caught some of Rodney’s life lessons on Facebook or Tik Tok, you know that he can take the most complex of problems and make them seem solvable. He’s got a handle on what matters, and what doesn’t, and he’ll give you a completely new perspective. Catch his show to see why people worldwide have declared him the honorary family member they wish they’d always had.
HAVE A SUPER AWESOME DAY!
