The Ripple Effect reviews The Micro Jackson EP

California music site, The Ripple Effect, had very nice things to say about The Micro Jackson EP, the most recent Arrison Kirby release, featuring Dustin Milotte and Brite Flowers.

I like this The Grime person.

Lords of Rap Volume 1: Just da Tip by Hypenkrünk to be released 1.28.2014

Lords of Rap Volume 1: Just Da Tip is the debut release by Knoxville based rap and psychedelia group, Hypenkrünk. Though they use aliases for this project, Hypenkrünk is a collaboration between musicians from across the music spectrum. The players hail from the backgrounds of hip hop, (Flashmob, Flack Jacket) electronica, (Star Mountain), jazz (Deep Green) and prog rock (Obadiah).

The lyrics of vocalist, MC Realtree, are as prurient as they are suggestive and subliminal. Where in one moment, he may be rolling in the dirt with an animal nature and the lowest of brows, in the next he is proposing an evolution of the collective consciousness and sharing glimpses into other worlds.

These lyrics overlay a bed of music that is at times danceable, industrial, improvisational, irreverent, ambient, rigid, rocking, progressive, gangsta and dancehall. It could be comparable to a Nine Inch Nails album, produced by Nigel Godrich and Dan the Automator, featuring 2 Live Crew in one ear and Outkast in the other…or maybe Sage Francis.

This is the twentieth release from the El Deth recording label. Get it online and in limited hard form on January 28th, 2014.

Supajam previews The Micro Jackson EP

The mighty London music press outfit, Supajam, provided an early look at forthcoming, The Micro Jackson EP, by Arrison Kirby, with Dustin Milotte and Brite Flowers.  Specifically, they shared the first single, “Action.”

There is this question of Paul McCartney playing Americana.  That is far too humbling of a comparison for comment.  Thanks, Supajam!

The Micro Jackson EP by Arrison Kirby with Dustin Milotte and Brite Flowers to be released 10.15.2013

The Micro Jackson EP is the fifth release from Knoxville producer, Arrison Kirby. It features Dustin Milotte (Star Mountain, Hypenkrunk) on guitar and the mysterious Brite Flowers on bass.

With the exception of a Freddie Mercury cover (“Living on my Own”), this collection of songs was written by Kirby over a series of years. Milotte and Flowers were commissioned specifically for a one-time performance at Checkpoint Charlie’s in New Orleans. These versions, with each of their own compositional additions, were arranged, rehearsed and recorded over a series of sessions in 2012

Milotte’s guitar gives this release more of a southern feel than Kirby’s previous recordings, while maintaining the avant-garde foundation that Kirby typically works from. The sound captured here is at times reminiscent of Wilco, mated with Ben Folds, David Byrne, and a touch of Devo playing the Grateful Dead.

This is the nineteenth release from Knoxville’s El Deth recording label. It will be digitally available through all major online distributors on October 15th, 2013.

Here’s the first single….

Aries Release Party @ The Pilot Light, Knoxville, TN – 4.6.2013

The flier above pretty much explains it all, but let’s get redundant…

Aries, the new album from Arrison Kirby, will be released everywhere digitally and in limited physical form on April 2nd.

Four days later, on April 6th, we will be celebrating that release with a party at the Pilot Light in Knoxville’s Old City.

At this event, Obadiah will be reforming to perform the entire Aries album from start to finish.  Dustin Milotte (Deep Green, Hypenkrunk) will be joining on guitar.  Jakob Esaw (who will be also celebrating a birthday that night), will also be contributing to the set’s closer.

Before all this, we will be treated to a set from Sidecar Symposium.

And we will end the night with a dance party, courtesy of Nathan Moses with an all vinyl, soul and psychedelia DJ set.

Your master of ceremonies for the evening will be comic Jeff Blank.

You can check out “Scrappy,” the first single from Aries, here:

Only come if you like music and good times!

Hypenkrunk & White Colla Crimes @ Banks Street Bar, New Orleans, LA – 12.14.2012

El Deth returns to New Orleans to join hometown heroes, White Colla Crimes, for a down and dirty evening of music at the Banks Street Bar.  The show will begin around 10 or so, and I’m pretty sure it’s free.

This round will include an expanded version of Hypenkrunk, including multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Milotte of Deep Green, as well as some possible guest vocalists.  It’s going to be a good time so get there.

Checkpoint Charlie’s Rehearsal for 7.7.2012 – Arrison Kirby, Dustin Milotte & Grant Parker

Checkpoint Charlie's, New Orleans, LA

Right click and “Save As” to download the tracks:

“Burned Out”

“Action”
“Bomb”
“Living on My Own” (Freddie Mercury)
“Crick”
“Single Politician

This was our next to last rehearsal for our performance on July 7th at Checkpoint Charlie’s in New Orleans, LA.  This entire act was set up specifically for this show.  First it was booked (under the name “El Deth Music”) with help from, Jak Locke.  Then I set out a call for people who wanted to come along and contribute.  Dustin Milotte (Deep Green, Star Mountain) and Grant Parker (Deep Green, Big John and the Nationals) answered that call to perform.  Astrid Dees also came along for logistical and moral support…and to shop and have a good time and stuff.  Dustin and Grant and I fleshed out material and rehearsed for about a month and a half before the show.  This particular session was recorded on June 26th.  It’s highly likely that we will record this material more formally (i.e.  tracked out without all the wounds showing)  and releasing it in the near future, most likely under the name The Mighty Whites.

This is the exact set we did at Checkpoint Charlie’s, without random stage banter, of course…but we did keep “Crick.”  “Bomb” was one I used to do during acoustic sets years ago.  Dustin remembered it from those days and suggested we bring it back out.  (I changed the word “president” to “congressman” since it was initially written when George W. Bush was in office.  I’m still not sure about the Sadam Hussein reference staying in there).  We also covered a Freddie Mercury song, “Living on my Own,” that was introduced to me by Josh Lunsford when we recorded in Shiver Me Timbers together.  We closed with “Single Politician,” which was originally performed by Never Sorry.

I want to mention that, in addition to setting up the show, Jak Locke also performed with the Jak Locke Rock Show.  We saw him play music at a burlesque show at the Allways Lounge the night before, too.  It was all quality and I implore you to check out his stuff.

New Orleans really is a magical place.  The staff and patrons at Checkpoint Charlie’s were all warm and hospitable.  Really, pretty much everyone we encountered in Orleans Parrish was.  No complaints at all, other than the fucking heat.
