Benefit for the Recovery in Japan

Local musician and founder of Antiopic Records David Daniell with James Elliott, Thrill Jockey's Bettina Richards, Regina Greene (Front Porch Productions), and Greg Davis have come together to curate an incredible project that will benefit the relief efforts in Japan. In fact, 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of this release will go to the Japanese emergency response organization Civic Force, Peace Winds, and the Fukushima Prefecture municipality. Benefit for the Recovery in Japan features 64 tracks from some of the best musicians from around the world including Prefuse 73, Parts & Labor, School of Seven Bells, and so many more.


Architecture When We Were Young

The gentle dream-pop of Architecture reminds me slightly of a female version of Campfires, and this band is releasing their debut ep, When We Were Young, on April 9th. Architecture is primarily the duo of Melissa Harris and Rebecca Scott of Panda Riot and together make a beautiful psych-twee sound.

The band is performing at Miskas this Saturday, 3/26, and celebrating the release of the ep on April 9th at The Whistler.


New video from I Fight Dragons

I Fight Dragons have released a new video of Packy Lundholm, their lead guitarist, playing Tetris in various locations around town. I just love seeing him play his guitar which is an actual NES. You can get free music from the band here.

I Fight Dragons will be performing an all ages show show at Lincoln Hall on 3/31, and they promise they will be using this guitar.


Geronimo! Fuzzy Dreams for Free

Geronimo! is giving away their 2010 LP Fuzzy Dreams for free this week leading up to their show free show at Double Door on 3/29. You can download the album here. Also playing that night are Kid You’ll Move Mountains, Brontosaurus, and The Soil & The Sun.
