Hypenkrunk, I Octopus, Sidecar Symposium & James Drown @ The Longbranch Saloon, Knoxville, TN – 10.18.2012

This will be the first public, Knoxville performance for Hypenkrunk, I Octopus and Sidecar Symposium, with an introduction to the night from James Drown.

After a word from Mr. Drown, Sidecar Symposium will take the stage for the debut of their Vaudevillian aural workings.  Sidecar features members of Never Sorry, Boozehound Gandydance, and Kamuy, among others.

After they get us moving, we will next be treated to I, Octopus, an experimental jazz/prog import, coming to our town by way of New Orleans.  This will be their first time playing in Knoxville.

The evening will top off with the trap and bounce stylings of Hypenkrunk.  Their live electronic blend, with the verbal stylings of MC Realtree, will keep you dancing until last call.

Truly, there will be something for everyone.


Persons by the red cloud reissued!

David Davis seems to be doing pretty well these days.  He lives in Los Angeles and works at EastWest Studios.  He worked hard to get where he is, deserves it fully, and will be forever well wished by his friends at El Deth.

The man is a recording machine (wait…isn’t that just, like, a tape deck or something?), having tracked a slew of other people’s material, as well as his own.  To explore his humble beginnings, however, one must indulge in his 2006 full length disc, Persons.  It was recorded under the moniker, the red cloud, and produced by MiAH (Beware: The Gentlemen, Cutthroat Shamrock)  at Knoxville’s Sound Lair.

And now you can sink your ears into it once again.

You read right already.  Persons by the red cloud has now been digitally reissued everywhere!

There have been several people hitting me up about that album in the past several months.  So to you people, I’m sorry it took so long.  But now you can get it, digitally, pretty much everywhere.

If you use iTunes, get it here.

Endless Winter by The Standstill to be released 11.13.2012

This is the second collection of songs to be released by the elusive Jeff Maynard.  Where his previous outing, What Happened to Turn Signals? (released under the ridiculously named but critically acclaimed “Skippy and the Bellbottoms” moniker) found Maynard performing each instrument himself, this time he has employed a quartet of some of Tennessee’s finest musicians: Kenny Gilbert, Nathan Brown, Joshua Russell and Christine Hale.  

 Endless Winter was recorded during a two-day period of live sessions.  It’s sound runs a gauntlet of indie influences, nodding to such acts as The Shins, Nada Surf, My Morning Jacket, a touch of early Radiohead, and a formidable Pixies cover.  The songs, themselves, examine the nuances of a dissipating relationship from an often matter-of-factly, emotional vantage point.

 This collection is the seventeenth release from El Deth.  It will be digitally available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon,  and all other major online distributors on November 13th, 2012.
