Preview: Shannon Harney at Disco Volante on Sunday

San Francisco's Shannon Harney is the stuff of girl crushes (I can only speculate about boy crushes). Let’s just review this interview by Twenty Two: she runs an adult day-care, likes bourbon, chess, taco trucks, and long bike rides.

She also happens to have one of those blow-you-away, velvet-soft voices to deliver her musical poetry. Think Regina Spektor vocal cadences, heavily-dampered piano, and lyrics that could only come from an introspective 20-something more interested in watching seasons change than her bank statement.

Catch Shannon Harney at Oakland venue Disco Volante on Sunday, October 28. You can find tickets here

Josh's CMJ 2012 Day 5: Tallahassee, Ace Reporter, Hippy, Black Wing Halo, Automatic Children

Well, isn’t this bittersweet. After running the CMJ Marathon, I’m certainly exhausted, but I’m definitely sad to see it go. CMJ was so life encompassing that it’ll probably take me a week or so to adjust back to the normal day-to-day. If you happened to be standing by any door this week and I, out of habit, hand you my driver’s license and put my wrist out to be stamped, then I’d like to apologize in advance. Read Josh Johnson's report of CMJ's Day 5 here. - In the picture and Streaming: Black Wing Halo

New Music Video: “LNDN” (“London Dungeon” - The Misfits Cover) - Psychic Teens

Psychic Teens love Halloween, and so do we. Last year they released an EP of Nine Inch Nails covers. This year they have taken on works by the Misfits, which they will be releasing on super limited edition (32 copies), square lathe cut 7” with screenprinted art by Mike Wohlberg (The Fat Kid Illustration) for their two big upcoming Halloween shows with Titus Andronicus & Ceremony (10/23) and The Dead Milkmen & MC Lars (10/31). Below is the new music video that Psychic Teens released for “London Dungeon” (which is a great rendition) that was created by Justin Miller (Video Horrow Show). You can also take a listen to, purchase and download the Misfit covers HERE.


Free Download: “Mustard” - Seismic Thrust

Below is a new track from experimental folk trio Seismic Thrust called “Mustard” that you can download for free. The single will appear on their upcoming EP Py Thanksgi, which will be released on Thanksgiving. You can also check out and download for free their cover of the Beach Boys’ “Caroline No” HERE that will be on the album as well.


Free Download: Daytrotter Session - Kite Party

Daytrotter recently posted a session with emotive indie rockers Kite Party, which you can listen to and download for free HERE (with a membership). The band swung by Rock Island and recorded it this past summer while on tour with Glocca Morra. They’ll be heading down this week to Gainesville, FL to perform on Saturday, Oct. 27 at The Fest 11.

R5 Productions Brings Local Artist Community Together for New Concert Poster Series

R5 Productions is teaming up with local artists for a new concert poster series for their events. The Philadelphia Poster Guild project is “an effort to merge local artists, musicians, & venues to create quality, affordable art for the masses. With a little luck, one or more posters will be released each month. These posters will be available at selected R5 shows for a fair price. They will also be available online for a reasonable price as well, shipped in a sturdy tube. Proceeds from this project will benefit local artists, musicians, and a few select non-profits. Support your local artists… they will reciprocate. More details to follow.” You can view their first effort above by Thom Lessner for the upcoming Dead Milkmen show on Halloween as well as the current list of participating artists below.

Josh's CMJ Day 4: Wilsen, The Bengsons, Ma'am, A Brief View Of The Hudson, Field Mouse

There ain’t no rest for the weary as my CMJ Friday starts bright and early at noon at the Rockwood Music Hall. Why would I voluntarily begin my day so early? So I can see two folk acts featuring guy-girl vocal harmonies, which is essentially catnip to me. First up was A Brief View of the Hudson, a five-piece band centered on the vocals of Ann Enzminger and Nick Nace. Read Josh Johnson's report of CMJ's Day 3-4 here. - In the picture and Streaming: Wilsen.
