Thanks to Tom at The Great Pumpkin for giving me this video to post. I missed the Group Tightener party where this video was shot and luckily this great Dead Gaze video helps to fill that void a little bit. Furlow is an aggressive guitar player and his vocals, both here and on tape, are layered in reverb, adding depth to an already thick sound. Even as a two-piece Furlow makes a mess in your ears.

Cole Furlow will be in NYC for CMJ and is also playing an MME/ Pop Gun show at Glasslands on Nov. 12 with Blank Dogs (album release), Velvet Davenport and Swimsuit. BE THERE and get tickets here.

Check out a track from the new Firetalk 7″ from Dead Gaze.

Dead Gaze: Take Me Home or I Die Alone

The bee is the pollinator. The flower is so pretty. The butterfly came from a nasty coffin that was actually its beginning and not its end. What is the crazy but simple process of reproduction, growth, life? Ask your self that question and the only answer you’ll get, while watching this video, will sound like a comforting “hey yo” that buzzes and bounces around inside.

Woodsman: When the Morning Comes

“Meds” is a morning-time  wake-up call, gently easing you into your day. Composed and performed by the two-piece NYC band Phone Home, the song is an amalgamation, a gentle mash of comforting synths and driving force jazz-influenced percussion. In the confusing haze of “chillwave,” this song stands out for its defiance of that. With simple grace, the song stays away from a cutesy 80s sound, and the piano’s affect is not totally unlike that of The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.”

It shouldn’t come as much of a shock that last night’s Juliana & Evan show at Mercury Lounge, the second in a two-night stint, was a bit more like therapy than a straight reunion. Anyone who has followed the career of these two ’90s alterna-babes knows that their relationship has always been tumultuous and somewhat undefined, at least in the public eye. Rumors about their relationship have persisted for more than two decades; here, they at least tried to lay them to rest.

“This is explicitly about having sex with you,” Dando mumbled, prefacing the hit “It’s About Time.”

The stark beauty of a Mountain Man performance is shown with compelling detail in this video by Site & Sound. Watch the three women as they prepare for, and then deliver, a stellar performance on the roof of the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

Andrew Gauthier asked MME to premiere this long-time coming mini documentary about one night with the band, and of course, we were more than happy to do so.

Site & Sound is a web-based documentary music series dedicated to telling the individual stories of unique live performances in and around New York City. Each episode of Site & Sound covers one specific performance by one musician or band.

The goal of Site & Sound is to create compelling mini-documentaries about singularly talented musicians. Shot in an intimate, verite style, the series captures the small, specific details of a musical performance as well as the personal happenings surrounding that performance.

Mountain Man performed as the musical guest at one of the summers’ Rooftop Films.

Double Dylan today… Here’s one of his best songs, more often and better performed by The Band, this time covered by the main man Jerry Garcia himself, in 1986 in Passaic, N.J. Awesome jams, Jer…

“Someday everything is gonna sound like a rhapsody…When I Paint My Masterpiece.”

Good songwriters flock to each other. One generation inspires the next. While many of today’s musicians can claim Bob Dylan as an influence, only Dave Longstreth and the other members of Dirty Projectors are wearing that loving allegiance so proudly and boldly on their sleeves. The band has covered Dylan multiple times– and not just in raucous live settings but in studios, too. (And once for Levi’s.)

On the new Bitte Orca extended release the somewhat obscure Dylan tune “As I Went Out One Morning,” which Dylan only performed live once, is featured. It’s a perfect DP’s cover because they truly make it their own, which actually isn’t too hard at this point because the vocals from the sirens in the band are so firmly entrenched in any indie fans head as typical Dirty Projectors. Those voices are unmistakeable.

This coupling of contemporary and ancient genius is, for many, a match made in heaven. Bob Projectors. Dirty Dylan.
