Andrew Duhon is a songwriter who's weighted, soulful songs feel like a sweet spot between his hometown of New Orleans and the familiar landmarks of Americana Music. No Depression call's Duhon "A soulmate of Van Morrison lyrically and vocally."

Luce’s first instrument was viola, and by age 13 she was performing in her mother’s orchestra. Her debut full-length album Azalea, produced by Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson, combines her classical training with Americana and folk influences for a collection that feels authentic and comfortable in a way that only lifelong talent can create. Popmatters writes of the debut release that the tunes are, “carefully composed without the sort of pomp that we may have come to expect from classically-trained performers from musical families. Luce forgoes the usual pageantry for something organic and unique that comes from the heart." 

With this compilation of songs born from a collaboration in Nashville, TN, Luce was able to combine what she knew about instrumentation with the fruits of new self-discoveries. Luce says, “Playing strings has been a huge part of my life. On this album, I got to record viola and guitar on my tunes with people that I truly admire. I’m very proud of what we’ve created."

Boy Harsher // Special Interest

Boy Harsher // Special Interest

You make me feel like falling through.
I disappear, in my mind.
Boy Harsher return with their second LP Careful - a wild ride that celebrates abandon, while mourning attachment + love.
Boy Harsher began as an urgent need to produce and consume. In the winter of 2014, Jae Matthews and Augustus Muller started to experiment with sound, video, and text. The advent of Boy Harsher! Born out of this tumultuous relationship in swampy Georgia, their first EP Lesser Man is sexy as it is sulking. Lesser Man determined their morose, pop sound. In their second album, the full length Yr Body is Nothing, Matthews and Muller took that dark and ran with it. Both releases reflect the fervor present in their adolescent lust and anger. Yet, before Matthews and Muller recorded any song, their chaos made the project vulnerable and invariably lead to momentary destruction . In what was at the time believed to be their last performance, Matthews had “careful” tattooed across her back, while Muller fried the speakers. A lit candle was thrown. They were not on speaking terms.
At that time “Careful” was meant as a warning: the cautionary understanding of love. The duo felt as though they were disappearing within one another. But, if Boy Harsher’s first two releases narrated the pain and desperation that follows after something goes awry, then this LP, Careful, describes what loves gives you: fear and joy, tenderness and pain. For Boy Harsher, Careful attempts to detail the enveloping trauma of loss combined with the fantasy of escape (a reckless abandon).
Matthews and Muller certainly made amends since that fateful live tattooing, loud as hell performance, however both still have complex relationships to attachments. In 2017 Matthews’ mother was diagnosed with dementia and as the symptoms began to take hold the essence of “careful” became relevant in a new way. Matthews’ relationship with her parents has always been complicated: her father past away when she was a teenager and her mother is an alcoholic, consistently unpredictable with affection and stability. The loss of her father was extreme, yet acute, whereas the persistent sadness of losing her mother (the memories that defined their relationship) is a slow, chronic suffering. The trauma of losing someone is almost in tandem to Matthews’ understanding of love. It with these intensely personal struggles Matthews and Muller began developing their new album. With Careful, Boy Harsher use the medium of minimal electronics to create a compelling narrative of a deteriorating family and the reaction to run away from it.
Careful splits its time between songs that study the trauma imbedded within loss and the compulsion to flee. The track “The Look You Gave (Jerry)” is named after Matthews’ deceased step-father, who passed right before her mother was diagnosed with dementia. The song mourns Jerry, as described through her mother’s perspective: “I close my eyes and I can almost see: The look u gave / when u / you ran from me.” For Matthews the fiercest pain in relation to her mother’s disease is her mother’s loss of comfort, a grasping at an image that slowly fades away. Death for Matthews and her mother has become synonymous with abandonment. Not unlike the pain of losing her father, Matthews conceives the hollowness where intimacy once was - the melancholy of disappearance.
The message of “careful” also plays out as universal warning in these Boy Harsher’s tracks — do not be fooled, loss is inevitable. “Fate” describes the willing lover who knows that there is nothing their love can do to keep their partner. “Hi Hi / Oh No / In spite of me / you always go. Forget the crying / tempt the pain / hi hi / gone again.” In Careful affection vanishes as quickly as it arrives. To understand love, you must accept that it dissolves, leaving sorrow and disappointment in its wake. Yet, Careful reconciles the deterioration of love with the gilded expectation of escapism.
In reaction to these morose conditions, Matthews and Muller created multiple tracks that celebrate flight. Their fantasies in these bleak scenarios play out in the perspective of the runaway. “LA” takes this to a wistful degree. Slow swelling synths cut sharply with fast chugging drum machines as Matthews begs someone to take her away: to go down. The darkness exists in these reveries but in perverse extremes. Boy Harsher proves Careful’s variety with these uptempo club ready tracks that demonstrate escapism through vice and rave. With “Come Closer”, a nod to early EBM, Matthews beckons on top of a pulsing bass: “In the dark, you have nothing left, Let me take it”, the escape route is through another - gesturing to ‘come play’. Even the mascot of Careful, presented in the album’s cover art, is an imagined runaway. This character, stationed in a motel, or combing the beach with an overstuffed backpack, represents the embodied fleeing of Matthews and Muller’s desperate years.
Careful marks Boy Harsher’s most dynamic album to date. The band expands upon the fine-tuned production developed in their last EP Country Girl, but with plenty of nods to the fast tempo and grittiness of Lesser Man. Matthews and Muller attribute the evolution of their sound to the extensive touring they completed in the last few years. “Traveling and connecting with people has been so fundamental;” Muller says “we’re really able to experiment with our material and it feels like the live set as grown into an entity of its own”. Boy Harsher embarked on two US and two EU tours this past year, where audiences recognize their set as faster, harder version of their recorded material. Careful was primarily written at home in Massachusetts, with just a handful of synthesizers and a laptop. For Muller a minimal set up is paramount to his process. Boy Harsher mixed the album in Italy with Maurizio Baggio of La Distilleria Studio
who had a big hand in finalizing the sound.
Boy Harsher emphasizes emotive sounds and evocative narratives to generate palpable material in their latest release Careful. Careful is a timeless and original minimal synth record highlighted by a strong narrative and marks the definitive return of the enigmatic duo.

Swingin' Utters w/ Lost in Society

Swingin' Utters w/ Lost in Society

Swingin' Utters w/ TBA

Live Nation Presents: Swingin' Utters w/ TBA

While its origin story has gone through more reboots than Batman, Superman and Spider-Man combined, punk rock has been a consistent presence on the musical landscape for more than 40 years. You might be surprised to know, however, that the Swingin’ Utters have been around for nearly as long —the band celebrated their 30th anniversary with a greatest-hits collection last year. Hell, this Bay Area street-punk band is so well-respected among their peers, there’s even a whole tribute compilation dedicated to their extensive catalog, including covers by the likes of Dropkick Murphys, Fucked Up and Teenage Bottlerocket.
Since that comp came out in 2010, the Utters have issued three more full-lengths, each more fiery than the last, and now sit on the verge of releasing their ninth proper LP. Recorded at Nu-Tune Studios in Pittsburg, California, this past March by Chris Dugan (Green Day, Iggy Pop), the album is titled Peace And Love, but don’t let that fool you: This isn’t some Haight and Ashbury hippie shit. In fact, according to guitarist/vocalist Darius Koski, Peace And Love’s content is as politically outspoken as the Utters have ever been.
“This is, by far, our absolutely most political record we’ve ever done,” Koski says. “We don’t generally write very pointedly political songs. We tend to be a little more vague and abstract. But this one is pretty pointedly disgusted and pissed off and really directly attacking these fuckin’ people in office.”
“I agree it is our most political record,” remarks singer Johnny Bonnel. “When sexism, racism and nationalism is the agenda, it’s time to speak up.” Peace And Love certainly pulls no lyrical punches — we’ll give you three guesses as to who “Yes I Hope He Dies” is about, and the first two don’t count — but the Uttersalso keep things interesting from a musical perspective, whether it’s the Ramones worship of “E.C.T.” (think of it as the long-gestating counterpoint to “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment”), the surprisingly melodic, Beatles-esque “Seeds Of Satisfaction” (which Koski lovingly refers to as his “surf-goth song”) or the gorgeous, haunting closing track H.L.S., written and performed by guitarist/vocalist Jack Dalrymple and inspired by the sudden death of his former One Man Army bandmate Heiko Schrepel, who passed away in 2015. “Jack actually emailed me that song several years ago, right after Heiko died,” Koski recalls. “Immediately, I knew this is the last song on the record. My only suggestion was that it started with him acoustic, then the band joins in. You don’t really hear Jack that naked ever. That song gives me chills when I hear it.”
The rebellious spirit of the Swingin’ Utters is as present as ever on Peace And Love, although the band looks and sounds a little bit different this time around, thanks to their new rhythm section of Tony Teixeira on bass and Luke Ray on drums.
“Both Luke and Tony are stellar musicians who study their work,” says Bonnel. “Luke has amazing ability, but all his drumming is tasteful—it’s never overkill. Tony managed to come up with classic bass lines that made every song a little bit stronger.”
Koski echoes Bonnel’s praise, commenting, “We love having these new dudes in the band. Tony is a really melodic, pretty player, whereas Luke is a fucking monster. Tony and Luke are best friends, and they’ve been playing together for years in other bands like Cobra Skulls and Sciatic Nerve, so that really helps.”
It’s been four years since the Utters’ last full-length, so all three songwriters in the band had a stockpile of material when they headed into the studio. That means what you’re getting on Peace And Love is the cream of the crop.
“We usually abandon songs if we think they’re shitty or filler,” Koski admits. “I still have tons of songs; Johnny does too. But we try not to make records super-long.”
Given that the last time the Utters came off a prolonged hiatus, the band ended up cranking out three full-lengths in four years, one has to wonder if Peace And Love is going to be the start of another extended burst of creativity for these punk lifers. Koski isn’t thinking that far ahead, though. In fact, he finds it hard to even enjoy the present. Even though his band has achieved three decades and nine albums together—two feats nearly impossible for most bands—Koski wrestles with his legacy a bit.
“We just keep on going,” he says. “I’m glad we’re still doing it. Johnny’s 50; I’m in my late 40s. I don’t think anything particularly new is gonna happen—we’re not gonna be on TRL any time soon. That’s fine. It’s a total accomplishment to stay together this long, but I’m a total pessimist. I should be totally grateful—and I am! But it’s hard to be a plumber when you wanna be a full-time musician. But wah wah wah—I still get paid to travel and play my songs all over the world. I’m not a millionaire, but who cares? I get to make records, and someone out there cares about them.”

BASS CHURCH feat. MORESOUNDS

Horn & Tail presents...

BASS CHURCH*

featuring...

MORESOUNDS
(France | Astrophonica, Cosmic Bridge, 31 Recordings)

Germain Bigou aka Moresounds is a French musician from Paris, France.

Having begun his career in the early 2000s, Bigou is now a recognised actor in the global drum & bass scene, a dance music genre with roots in England. After years of small independent releases, his first notable professional releases came via the UK label Cosmic Bridge in 2012 followed by the Astrophonica label, also UK-based. Since then he has received further recognition and support from noted drum & bass pioneer Doc Scott, who released Bigou's productions on his own label, J:Kenzo, and with remixes for US producer Machinedrum's Vapor City project on the Ninja Tune label. Recognising his progress, FACT Magazine included Bigou as a producer to watch in 2015.

Bigou's music has appeared regularly on UK radio stations including BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM, as well as various radio shows around the world. He has performed live, in a unique dub style rooted in Jamaican tradition, in various European cities, as well as China. He has appeared at noted festivals such as Sun & Bass (Italy), Fusion (Germany), and Telerama Dub (France).

"Moresounds is a proud student of Tubby, a man who found his artistic voice not only in the echoes of the Kingston pioneer's legacy but also the grooves of hip hop and the psychedelia of rave and dance music. Moresounds' music is that rare thing: a real synthesis of dub and dance music aesthetics, pulling from the enduring, mutating DNA strands of each to create something that's beyond a mere mixture of styles.

This intricate synthesis was first showcased to the world via releases on Seattle's Car Crash Set, the Snafu EP, and Om Unit's Cosmic Bridge label, the Control Breath EP. The latter has received worldwide praise and continued support from the likes of Low End Theory's D-Styles and legendary selector David Rodigan while also catching the attention Astrophonica boss Fracture. Soon enough a deal was sealed for Moresounds to follow Control Breath with a self-titled EP for the London label."

CLEOPATRICK

 

cleopatrick is a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario - yup, the ‘c’ is lowercase. 

Best friends since kindergarten, frontman Luke Gruntz and drummer Ian Fraser have an enviable connection that translates into a powerfully unified expression of sound. With a bastardized bass amp and split signal, Gruntz simultaneously commands the range of bass and guitar topped with provocative blues grooves and take-down breakdowns. 

In early 2016, the pair recorded their first EP 14 in its entirety in a single studio session and was later dubbed one of the most promising acts for 2017 by 94.9 The Rock’s “Generation Next” program. 

Now piling all of the torment and rhetoric of chasing big dreams within the limits of a small town, cleopatrick’s brand new single “hometown” gives a tasteful hint of growth and raw revelation expressed in their upcoming sophomore EP the boys (Fall 2018).

Chastity // FAVX // Hex Windham

Chastity is a world of its own from the mind of Brandon Williams. Reflecting the working class background of Whitby Ontario, Chastity’s songs are charged with the ethos of archetypal youth on the fringe.

It was clear from the release of Chastity’s first demos that this was not “another punk band that can operate at only one speed.” Always concerned with the trending lack of accessibility and inclusivity in public spaces for the arts, the first Chastity show was held in Williams’ own bedroom where, packed wall-to-wall, the police were quickly called. But after the project’s second show supporting DC punk band Priests, Chastity was off to the races, sharing stages with the likes of with Metz, Chelsea Wolfe and Fucked Up. All without a full length recording out.

Released summer 2018 with Brooklyn Label Captured Tracks, 'Death Lust' follows the plot of suffering to survival. The album begins on a tortured note with ‘Come’ and builds toward the plummeting finale of ‘Chains’, evolving from start to finish in a crescendo of severity. Pitchfork calls Chastity's music 'the Smashing Pumpkins if they’d signed to Dischord'.

Anemone // Video Age // Paul Cherry

Anemone is a real live band. Lead by Songwriter Chloé Soldevila, it is music to be blasted from car speakers and at parties, a communal experience intended to be shared, the kind of emotional catharsis that can pack a dance floor—sometimes even packing the stage as well. Creatively incorporating aspects that can vary from Dream pop, dance music and Krautrock, it is music that will stick with you, that will live inside your brain, that will become a part of you forever. Music that refuses to be ignored. Anemone is Chloé Soldevila, Miles Dupire-Gagnon, Gabriel Lambert, Zachary Irving and Samuel Gemme.

Future Thieves w/ Nebula Rosa//TBA

FUTURE THIEVES

Midway through recording their exhilarating new self-titled album, Nashville indie
rockers Future Thieves left the studio and hit the road. It was difficult to walk away
from the undeniable stride they’d hit, but the band had nearly two months of shows in
Europe followed by a lengthy string of US dates on their calendar, and that meant
completing the record would simply have to wait. Far from derailing the group’s
progress, though, the road actually brought fresh perspective, with each performance
revealing new depths and dimension to the music. The material had the unique
opportunity to live and breathe and grow onstage every night, undergoing sometimes
radical evolutions in instrumentation and arrangement as the tour progressed. By the
time Future Thieves returned to the studio, the songs were battle-tested and sturdier
than ever, and the resulting album is a remarkable showcase of growth and maturity
from a band poised for a major breakout.
Recorded primarily at El Paso’s famed Sonic Ranch with producer and longtime
collaborator Alex Jarvis, ‘Future Thieves’ introduces threads of pop and electronic
music into the band’s organic sensibilities, generating dreamy soundscapes and
hypnotic grooves with ethereal synthesizers, vintage drum machines, and shimmering
guitars. Balance (of light and dark, hope and disappointment, future and past) is the
ultimate goal of a number of tracks here—from the angular “On The Run,” which
wrestles with indecision and regret, to the chiming “Dark Spin,” which swims in a
churning sea of memories unleashed by running into an ex—and Collett’s lyrics often
grapple with growing up and accepting that nothing lasts forever. There’s an
indefatigable optimism to songs like the bright and splashy “Prom Night,” though, as
the effervescent tale of two lovers committing to each other despite all the outside
forces pushing them apart reveals a band that’s ultimately romantic at heart.
The lengthy process behind the Future Thieves’ new release is a far cry from their
most recent record, a live-in-the-studio album captured entirely in an hour. Comprised
largely of material from the band’s critically acclaimed 2015 debut, ‘Horizon Line,’
‘Live at Blue Rock’ garnered praise everywhere from Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco to
Guitar World, which hailed it as a “collection of turbo-charged Americana tunes.”
Relix similarly raved that the album “captures the quartet’s spirit and intensity,”
while The Tennessean simply lauded the band as “incredible.” They followed it up in
2017 with “Sucker,” an infectious single that earned love from Billboard, who
highlighted the band’s newfound “infusion of...electro-pop grooves,” and Jimmy
Fallon, who premiered the official video on The Tonight Show’s Tumblr. The group’s
searing live show, meanwhile, helped them notch festival appearances from Bonnaroo
to Summerfest and prompted Live Nation to name them to their Ones To Watch series.

Igor & Red Elvises w/ TBA

If Igor and Red Elvises aren't in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one - this traveling rokenrol party is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining performers to bring into the fold. 

Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed "Siberian Surf Rock". Since then the band has included musicians from all over the world including United States, Israel, Kazakhstan, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria - to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba, ukulele and more. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor's unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock'n'roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout. 

German born Igor Yuzov grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak led him to seek out the forbidden records, which could be secretely traded in some places for those who knew where to look. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his folk band Limpopo. The "Crazy Russian Folk'n'Roll" group were personally greeted by Ronald Reagan and proceeded to win Ed McMahon's Star Search. 

Igor started Red Elvises in 1995, following a dream he had that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock'n'roll. Not one to say no to the King, Igor and his Russian friends started playing on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. Their street musician days did not last long, however, as they drew such huge crowds that the City of Santa Monica brought them to court and ordered them off the streets. Since then Red Elvises have been constantly touring, with occasional breaks from the road to record an album or take part in film and television projects. This constant work for the last 15 years has led to them gaining a world-wide following, with successful tours all over North America, Europe and Russia (Red Elvises bootlegs have been found in Siberia). 

Igor & Red Elvises have declined several major record deals, prefering to maintain independent status and produce all their own work. This includes 11 studio albums, one live album, a live concert DVD and a Greatest Hits compilation. Added to their long resume is work in film (Six String Samurai, Mail Order Bride, Armageddon, Skippy) and television (Melrose Place, Fastlane, Penn and Teller's Sin City Extravaganza, VH-1 Behind the Music, MTV). They can be found playing everything from large festivals to private parties, small venues to massive stages such as 2005's Live 8 Benefit Concert. Whatever the event and wherever Igor & Red Elvises go, they bring the party with them.

BASS CHURCH MARDI GRAS SERMON

Horn & Tail presents...

BASS CHURCH*

**Mardi Gras Sermon**

For the Mardi Gras Sermon, Bass Church will be back on Sunday night for a special night. More info soon.

===========================

Worthy (Dirtybird / Anabatic)

When it comes down to all the hype, his name says it all. He is Worthy. With an in-depth knowledge of production, mixing, and performance, Worthy has the insight to play for his audience, cultivating intense positive energy on the dance floor. From salty aired islands to dark club basements, over the past 10 years, Worthy has paid reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. As Carl Cox said, "The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music." He establishes an energetic dance floor camaraderie that makes even the most skeptic hater’s booty shake.

Growing up in Washington DC, Worthy was inspired by the early American rave scene. Upon moving to New York in the late 90’s, he was exposed to artists like LTJ Bukem and Stacey Pullen whose music inspired him to play records across multiple genres, from techno and breaks to hiphop and drum n’ bass. In 2001 he swapped coastlines, moving to San Francisco to pursue his music career. There he teamed up with Claude Von Stroke and Justin and Christian Martin, becoming one of the four founding fathers of the Dirtybird party, Worthy’s breakout track, Irst Te, released on the Dirtybird label in 2007, quickly established his notoriety as a producer. With other bangers like Shy Look, Tric Trac (co-produced with Eats Everything) and the recently release track, Dip, Worthy has been rocking the “Dirtybird” sound for nearly a decade now.

Concurrently, Worthy has established his own label, Anabatic Records, which has allowed him to be a bit more experimental with his production, and expand his reach as an artist. Some of the songs that have charted on sites such as Beatport include Concubia, Work The Walls, and Flashin. In 2014 Worthy released his debut full-length album, Disbehave, a genre-defying rebellion against the house producers status quo. Breaking down rules and boundaries, Worthy has sought to set himself apart from the mundane world of expectation, striking out to release something unexpected. Disbehave was accepted with critical acclaim and received notable press attention.

Nasvhille Pussy//Speedealer

For those of you unfamiliar with the sounds of Nashville Pussy, it could be described as Southern boogie on steroids (if you can imagine that), with lyrical content that at times makes Steel Panther look safe. The band was formed in 1997 and seventh studio album, “Pleased To Eat You”, is released prior to the band’s forthcoming UK tour this November.

Opening with the blatant “She Keeps Me Coming, And I Keep Coming Back” the track is straight in there and straight in your face, “Just Another White Boy” and “Drinking My Life Away” are like a dirtier AC/DC and “Woke Up This Morning” is as blues drenched as you would imagine.

I’d never really thought it before but there is a healthy dose of Alice Cooper in Nashville Pussy’s influences and this is evident in “Go Home and Die”, “Low Down Dirty Pig” and “One Bad Mother”. The guitar work is solid throughout “Pleased To Eat You” but especially on “Testify” where the interplay with the keyboards is some of the strongest on the album.

I can only describe “Hang Tight” as a slab of good old George Thorogood meets ZZ Top boogie, you’ll have to listen for yourself!! The album closes out the same way as it started with the superbly titled “Tired of Pretending That I Give A Shit”.

One of the enduring things about Nashville Pussy is that after more than 20 years, they have not compromised their sound or their outlook and that is highly commendable. If you can make the live dates, go- you won’t be disappointed.  *****
