Some Of Them Are Old photo

Some Of Them Are Old is a project based on experimental sound. Ideas evolve from drony delayed chords, slashing flashes of fuzz, and ambiguous vocal melodies - all mixed up in an attempt to create catchy creations of white noise.

Greyhound Soul photo

"Dark, compelling, hypnotic, swimmy...Greyhound Soul's third release (Down) is all of these things. It's also bluesy and smart and weird and jammy. Driven by singer Joe Pena's meandering, gruff melodies, the band's sound is somewhere between Tom Waits and Neil Young, caught in a strange limbo between the retro blues rock of the Black Crowes and the post-apocalyptic Southern gothic sound of 16 Horsepower." - Performing Songwriter Greyhound Soul's "sound, which takes a chapter from the book of Tom Waits, some pages from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and (soul), and creates a book all of their own. Lead singer Joe Pena has a perfectly gravelly voice that is similar enough to Waits to draw the obvious comparisons but not forced into aping his style. Filled with thick, bluesy guitar riffs, organ, harmonica, and stellar instrumentation all around, Greyhound Soul have crafted two deliciously gritty, soulful, and bluesy rock albums to soothe your dusty soul and to imbibe to." - Delusions of Adequacy "Mournful, bluesy and a wee bit rocking, calling Greyhound Soul a "bar band" would not be far from the truth nor an insult. Greyhound Soul plays it straight and plays it well" - In Your Ear

Igor & The Red Elvises photo

"They learned their English from The Beatles and Queen. They love Thai pop. They won the International Band Competition on Ed McMahon's Star Search. They blend good old rock'n'roll with ethnic music from Russia, and they're influenced by Chuck Berry and Fidel Castro. They are the Red Elvises, and they're coming to kick ass and boogie all night." - Nada Mucho "The feisty, three-fourths Russian act delivers high-octane rock 'n' roll spiced with klezmer and country & western, all the while making full use of the stage with clowning and choreography. Oh, and audience participation is mandatory." - The Weekly Planet

JD McPherson photo

As a visual artist, Broken Arrow, Okla., native JD McPherson is well versed in the process of working within clearly defined formal parameters, and he employs a similarly rigorous discipline with his music. On Signs & Signifiers, McPherson’s seductively kickass debut album, produced by JD’s musical partner, Jimmy Sutton, this renaissance man/hepcat seamlessly meshes the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, on a work that will satisfy traditional American rock ‘n’ roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting McPherson’s rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures.

Mono photo

"Japan’s Mono have always been a cinematic band, concerning themselves with flow, dynamics, and textures. Since they began recording in 2001, they have undergone a virtual transformation, from power instrumental rock maximalists to a more diverse, lush, orchestral sound that focuses as much on space as it does on actual sound... Hymn to the Immortal Wind (their latest on Temporary Residence) is a definitive statement from a band that has staked its claim to a sonic identity that owes no debt to influence. If there is such a thing as 'post-rock,' this is truly it." 4 1/2 stars - All Music Guide "If Hymn to the Immortal Wind does anything, it establishes Mono’s place among post rock’s top dogs, and for this reviewer, easily gives them the title. Everyone else is just generic." 4.5/5 - Sputnik Music "Hymn to the Immortal Wind... (is) music for the gods. Japan’s Mono have been tugging the heartstrings of the faithful for almost 10 years with their, y’know, grand post-rock symphonies, and their fifth album is as ambitious as ever, teeming as it is with crashing guitars and cinematic strings... an outstanding work of epic beauty." 8/10 - NME "Hymn to the Immortal Wind has probably caused floods of tears. That's a description, not a dis. The melodies are more sure-handed than ever. They are like missiles locked onto emotional buttons." 7/10 - Pitchfork "Hymn to the Immortal Wind is Mono’s latest, and it’s their most cinematic effort to date... It’s the sound of epic detail in exquisite registration." - Dusted "'Majestic' is a word often used to describe Mono, and this record, the band's fifth, will not challenge us to avoid using it." 8/10 - Prefix
