Voodoo Moon

Hopefully you caught Black Fortys at Hangar last night, they sounded awesome. If you haven't had a chance to get their new full-length, Voodoo Moon, we've got some tracks for you! The full album hasn't made it to the digital world yet, we imagine it will soon, but until then check these out! Josh Murphy is moving out to the West Coast for a while, boy are we going to miss having him around. Good luck out there Murphy!

'Tis The Season!

December is finally here! Don't let the weather get you down, we have loads of incredible shows lined up to ensure you don't have to spend your Friday night alone in your room wearing all the sweaters you own listening to Smog. Kicking things off, HUME from Washington, DC will be playing at Skihouse this Friday! Some of the most interesting music I've heard in awhile, so stoked for this show - they've been on the road for awhile already, heading all around the country for an 80 day tour, whoa!! You don't want to miss this!!!

"Hume kicked off five years ago, the constantly metamorphosing product of guitarist/bassist/
composer Britton Powell’s high school philosophy class daydreams and basement-recording sessions.

... In these early days, Hume was hard to pin down. One minute it was a solo-project, the next it was a group of free-form improvisers, then a string quartet, and finally a full-fledged band performing expansive prog-rock in a giant octopus-shaped sculpture. Whatever was going on, it was always interesting. The last touring line-up of the group featured two drummers, two basses, and three saxophones performing a single 30-minute composition that Powell wrote during a six-month trip to India.

But somewhere during the last two years, Powell decided that the constant line-up changes were not getting him where he wanted to go.

Inspired in equal parts by James Brown’s touring band and the prog-rock titans of yesteryear, Powell decided that it was time to buckle-down and get tight. He rallied the heads together--recruiting drummer and long time collaborator Wilson Kemp (Macaw), bassist/multi-instrumentalist Joey Doubek (Mass Movement of the Moth) and guitarist, Peter Tran . Months of rehearsals followed. The group dug in deep, cloistering themselves in a group house basement for rigorous practice sessions—trying to find the balance between composition and spontaneity, to figure out how to ride knotty prog-riffs into deep trasnplendent bliss-outs.

The band just released a new 7" with two tracks, 'Inverse Fireworks' and 'One Drug'. A follow up to last year's enigmatic EP, Penumbra, the 7" finds the band refining its sprawling sound with economy and focus."

SECONDARY MODERN will also be playing! I've lived in Carbondale for about three months now but I've managed to miss them every single time they've played so I'm really excited to finally be hearing them! They've been in the recording studio recently and we'll be sure to keep you informed as to when they make their release!
