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.

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.

“Shock O’Barack” by The Standstill – free download until 2013

With the release of Endless Winter, the new album from The Standstill, we are giving away the prologue of the album for free, via Soundcloud.  The track is called “Shock O’ Barack” and it will be available for download until 2013 begins.

It was recorded the September before Barack Obama’s first election.  Now it feels appropriate that it is being released just after his second.

Jeff Maynard, the primary writer and arranger, has the same birthday as Obama.  Honestly, though, I have no idea if he really has any political opinions, himself.  He seems the lover, not fighter, type…usually.  In fact, this was kept on the “incomplete” list after the recording sessions, and “Shock O’Barack” may or may not have only been seen as a temporary, working title.

In the end, though, it sets the time well for the winter that is upon us.  Enjoy.  And if you like it, please check out the rest of it on Spotify or Itunes or something.

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.

 

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.
