SOTD #716 – Animal Daydream

SOTD #716 – Animal Daydream

Well, here we are again. Another year, another lush EP for running through cornfields barefoot, another suggestion that Gothenburg might float on a cloud high and away from the tumultuous river of now. I’m not about to renounce any of my thoughts on how music needs to keep moving forward, that musicians need to challenge […]

SOTD #714 – Dendera Bloodbath

Photo courtesy of Immersive Atlanta. In the great kingdom of Atlanta, way up north toward the mountains, there lies a village within the foothills. No families or clans call this hamlet home, for the grass is eternally charred, and the barren trees glow faintly at night, and voices chirp and chatter where no humans or […]

SOTD #713 – Halfsour

Say you’ve gone out to see a gig in a new town. You’ve arrived early, as is your custom, but already people are crowding the couches and milling in bunches. You don’t know any of these people. Your legs lock as you stand at the threshold, scanning for somewhere unobtrusive to sit. Twenty minutes crawl […]

SOTD #712 – Hag Face

SOTD #712 – Hag Face

The very name should chill your bones. As your lips form the words, you should welcome the slight shudder that slips down your back. You should feel compelled to fear. You should embrace the fear. As you would with Satan, Voldemort, Napalm Death, or the Glow Cloud. O great conjurers, o great terrors of the […]

SOTD #711 – Bamboo

SOTD #711 – Bamboo

Lately I’ve been asking myself things. Like, what traits do I value most in a person? Intelligence, surely? I’d always gravitated towards those as quick-witted and widely read as my brother. But no, I’ve decided, wit alone doesn’t appeal to me anymore. His sharp-tongued wife wounds us without flinching – meek laughter and pointed corrections […]

SOTD #710 – School Of Seven Bells

SOTD #710 – School Of Seven Bells

I think I can blame Drowned In Sound’s Sean Adams for pointing me in the direction of School of Seven Bells. If my memory serves me right, I think it also probably helped that this was at the same time as they had announced a Brisbane show, that I subsequently put in to photograph. It […]

SOTD #709 – Try The Pie

SOTD #709 – Try The Pie

Sometimes I find it so hard to be just your friend 11/6/15 Oh, god. Help me. I keep thinking about him lately and I don’t even know why. OK. Calm down. No, don’t calm down. He didn’t come in tonight, Karl told me, because he was admitted to the hospital today. I tried not to […]

SOTD #708 – SPC ECO

She’s not trying to stalk him. She just doesn’t know how to say hello. He always arrives just before the first bell, dashing in to his locker by the band room. And Chelsea always slips to the water fountain, right at 7:55, just for a little glimpse. Someone’s usually there at the lockers waiting for […]

SOTD #707 – Antlered Aunt Lord

Photo by Brigette Adair Herron Antlered Auntlord. Antlord Aunt Lard, Aunt Lured Antlered. With every encounter, you faced a different creature. The first time I met some Antlords in Athens, they were a trio, and they set up right in front of us, no need for a stage – Brent with the heavy metal drum […]

SOTD #706 – Mats Gustafsson

SOTD #706 – Mats Gustafsson

I read in a review lately that good art should not leave the audience wondering – “how did he/she do that?” Rather, they should walk away thinking – “I want to do this.” I’ve also been reading a book on Dada, and wrapping my head around the difference between anti-art – like the Zurich contingency […]
