Lords of Sealand Releases New Single - Motion

San Francisco's Lords of Sealand has announced the release of Motion, a four-movement dissection of the lives of plants and whether or not they are truly animate. Following the release of 2014's debut album Found Fiction, recorded just 3 months after the the full lineup was assembled, the band intentionally employed a more intricate and methodical group composition dynamic that is now being first unveiled on Motion.

Originally conceived as a distraction from the long production process of the upcoming full-length dream-based album Zs, Motion quickly grew into a self-contained but dense concept record in its own right. Disparate influences including, Yes, Genesis, The Mars Volta, along with the addition of synths, electronic percussion and sound design elements paint a vivid homage to the classic prog epic that feels fresh, modern and, dare we say, danceable.

"Motion, simply, is an exploration of the lives of plants, asking if plants are, in fact, animate objects. Deeper, it explores a concept that is fundamentally human: what does it mean to be living an impactful, meaningful life? It is about yin and yang. The music and lyrics together take you through the journey of a lifecycle, the ups and downs that come with living a purposeful life." -Lords of Sealand

Meklit Performs at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th

The Ethiopian-born, Oakland-based artist Meklit will perform at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th!

Combining Ethiopian jazz influences with soul and pop, Meklit’s music melds complex rhythms with vibrant melodies. Her new album When the People Move, the Music Moves Too will be released on June 23rd through Six Degrees Records, and was produced by multi-grammy winning artist Dan Wilson of Semisonic (Adele, John Legend) and features Andrew Bird as well as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band horns on several tracks.

When the People Move, the Music Moves Too is the result of a fateful encounter Meklit experienced in Addis Ababa with the legendary vibraphonist/composer Mulatu Astatke, who helped spark Ethiopia’s 1960s musical renaissance. She was deeply engaged with his music at the time, but he pushed her to think about how to bring her own experiences into her songs - “He was very pointed with me, saying several times ‘You keep innovating!’” she recalls. “He took me to task and he tasked me. It took me a while to digest that. It’s a big thing to have someone like that say that to you. I sat with it for a couple of years.”

New Music Video: "Nail in the Wire" - Lunacy

Nick Kulp (Remote Control, ex-Creepoid/Far-Out Fangtooth), who records and performs under the moniker Lunacy, just shared a new music video for the single, "Nail in the Wire," which premiered earlier this morning at CVLT Nation. Its visuals provide "a depiction of the world being destroyed by natural causes from the earth & the static represents purgatory and the split or 'nail' between dimensions." The footage was shot and edited by Joe Kusy and Conor Clasen, and it is the closing track on Lunacy's forthcoming EP Beneath The Fold, which will be available on cassette and in digital format on May 26 via Funeral Party.

Weekend Warrior, April 14 - 16

Stinking Lizaveta commemorate their latest record, Journey to the Underworld (Translation Loss Records, with a release show this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. The well-oiled, musical machine of a trio reigns down on listeners with an adventurous heavy exactness. Under the shield of an ominous darkness, the band traverses the unknown obstacles that lie in its path. With a cold, calculated, white-hot laser tenacity, Stinking Lizaveta forge a route, trudging on the pace of the underlying heart-pumping instrumentation that is always ready to detonate. Sheena & Thee Nosebleeds and The Company Corvette will reinforce this hard-rocking, psych-tinged sonic stew.
 
 
Also, this Saturday evening, The Foundry hosts The MINKA Carnival. Insatiable, loose, funky grooves permeate from MINKA, it’s the type that dictates/demands one to slip subconsciously into the get down. Meanwhile, having recently uncorked their new EP New Age Psychedelic Experiment, The Mysteries implore a casual psych-pop framework, while the multi-genre-melding, seamless stream of beats from Attic Tapes, formerly known as Fishtown Beats, sets the night into motion. - Michael Colavita
