MORE ON ANTHONY GREEN AND YOUNG LEGS :

In creating his latest album, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Anthony Green ventured further away from his punk/hardcore roots and pushed deeper into the lush, intricate, melody-driven brand of alt-rock he’d begun to master on his first two solo offerings. The inaugural release from the Circa Survive frontman’s newly launched imprint Moshtradamus Records—and Green’s first solo album recorded in a studio instead of D.I.Y.-style at home—Young Legs is a masterful collection of sprawling, lavishly textured pop. But while the album is Green’s most ambitious effort so far in a 10-year music career, Young Legs also bears a warm intimacy that proves both his strength and ingenuity as a songwriter.

-
Made at Studio 4 Recording in his home state of Pennsylvania, Young Legs finds Green teaming up with Will Yip, a producer/engineer who’s previously worked with Circa Survive (as well as artists as diverse as The Fray, Lauryn Hill, Arctic Monkeys, and Beanie Sigel). “I wanted this album to sound bigger and more atmospheric than anything I’d ever done, and I knew that working with Will could make that happen,” says Green. For more help in broadening his sound, Green once again joined forces with Good Old War, the Pennsylvania-based indie-folk trio who served as his backing band on 2008’s Avalon and 2012’s Beautiful Things. And to take full advantage of his uncommon chemistry with his longtime collaborators, Green waited until hitting the studio to finish writing the songs he’d sketched out for Young Legs. “Every time I’ve recorded with Good Old War there have been so many amazing things born from everyone getting together and jamming, instead of me just sitting in a room and writing alone,” he says. “I wanted to make sure that we had as many of those moments as possible, and that we were able to catch them in the recording of the album.”
-
The lead single from Young Legs, the pained yet powerful “Breaker” explores a much darker dimension of friendship. With its heady mix of gorgeously swirling guitar, furious drumming, and passionate piano riffs, the album-opening track features Green’s singularly sweet vocals capturing the heartache of what he calls “the experience of growing up with people and then growing apart from them.” That intensity fuels much of Young Legs, such as “You Have to Believe It Will Happen” (an epic, soul-stirring number that Green penned for a friend struggling through divorce) and the quietly devastating “I’ll Miss You” (a string-accented tribute to a departed friend). But a brighter, breezier mood prevails on many of Young Legs’ other tracks, including the dreamy acoustic reverie of “Stolen,” the gently cascading and harmony-soaked “Shine,” and “Anytime” (a blissfully bouncy ode to Green’s younger son).
-
“Most of the songs on the album were written for other people, or inspired by things that were going on in the lives of my friends and family,” explains Green. Describing the songs on Young Legs as “little presents to people I love,” Green adds that trying on different perspectives ended up helping him to become bolder and more honest in his own writing. “I found that the more I tried to write from someone else’s point of view, the more my own feelings about difficult things like loss and divorce were coming through,” he says. “It’s like focusing on someone else took the pressure off and made room for me to get more personal than I’d ever been in my songs.” Writing for others also helped him gain a sense of peaceful clarity that’s palpable throughout Young Legs, ultimately giving the album a transformative power. “There’s definitely a lot of darkness on the record, but I think there’s also a feeling of getting through a tough time and finding some kind of understanding and acceptance,” notes Green.
-
In crafting the sonics of Young Legs, Green looked to a wildly eclectic range of influences that includes the Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleet Foxes, Justin Timberlake’s latest work, and—most significantly—Fiona Apple and Frank Sinatra. “Their music is just so clear and cutting and really captures a feeling,” Green says of Apple and Sinatra. “Listening to their records inspired me to strip away the big drum sound and distorted guitars I usually go for, and make it so everything really revolves around the lyrics and melodies.” At the same time, the improvisation-friendly atmosphere in the studio—hinging on his collaboration with Good Old War’s Dan Schwartz, Keith Goodwin, and Tim Arnold—played a major role in helping Green to create more elaborate arrangements on Young Legs. “There’s so much magic that happens when you give the music all the space it needs to grow,” he says. “You allow the song to sort of guide itself, and then you just follow it.”
-
Although most of the songs on Young Legs weren’t fully realized until Green took the studio, the 31-year-old father of two is quick to point out that his songwriting process has gotten a great boost over the past few years. “Before my kids were born, when I had all the time in the world, I didn’t push myself to write if I wasn’t feeling it,” he says. “Now it’s like, ‘Well, you may not feel like writing, but your boys are gonna be up in three hours—so if you want to get it done, get it done now.’ Somehow having less time to myself actually leaves me feeling more inspired than ever.” Green’s children are also more directly helping with the album’s creation by contributing flourishes to the handpainted cover art he’s producing for a limited-edition run of Young Legs. “You won’t get anything less pretentious or less contrived than what comes out of the mind of a three-year-old,” says Green.
-
For Green, a certain youthful spirit infuses both the launching of Moshtradamus Records (an endeavor he dreamed up as a “homebase for music and art and literature from people who inspire me, like the community I had with my band and all my friends’ bands in high school”) and the songs that make up the imprint’s premiere release. “When I was a kid and first started making music, I would just go for it. But then as music became something I did for a living, my perception of it changed,” Green says. “Now it’s all come full circle, where I’ve learned so much and I’m finally able to dial the clock back to just musing on ideas, letting everything flow, letting the songs write themselves.” So while the title of Young Legs references Green’s children, it’s also a nod to the songwriter himself. “Writing from other people’s perspectives made me realize that I’m still getting to know myself as a songwriter,” he says. “Young legs aren’t defined yet—they’re still growing and becoming and finding their footing. I really like the sense of limitlessness and potential in that.”

Dave Hause comes to Looney Tunes!

Posted by Administrator On October - 2 - 2013

Dave Hause

Artist  DAVE HAUSE

Event – Acoustic Performance & Autograph Signing

Date – Thursday October 10th

Time – 7 pm

Dave Hause has seen it all, from his days as a roadie with seminal hardcore band Kid Dynamite, to playing with political punks Paint It Black,to his time leading The Loved Ones on worldwide tours.  After touring off of the Loved Ones’ 2008 album Build & Burn, Hause took some time off to start writing what he thought would be the band’s next album.  That album wouldn’t happen before the band went on hiatus, and Hause has put those songs together on his brand new album Devour.  

Drawing from his folk influences as much as from his punk upbringings, Devour is an album that draws as much from Chuck Ragan and Mike Ness as it does from Woody Guthrie.  Make sure to be a part of this awesome event on Thursday, October 10th at 7 PM.   All you need to do get a wristband to this event is pre-order a copy of Devour from Looney Tunes.  Dave will be playing some songs acoustically and then doing an autograph signing afterwards, so don’t miss out on this one

 THE BRANDON BOYD STORY

 

Born February 15, 1976, Brandon Boyd grew up in Calabasas, California. In 1991 he began singing and writing song lyrics with high school friends in what would become the multi-platinum selling and internationally recognized rock band, Incubus. In 2011 the band released their seventh studio album entitled ‘If Not Now, When?’ and travelled the globe for nearly two years.

Brandon’s life is one characterized by creativity and self-expression. As a very young boy he often carried sketchbooks and notepads, and though he was never formally trained, over the years he has developed that young habit into an inextricable part of his life. Brandon is the author of two books combining his artwork and creative writing: White Fluffy Clouds (2003), and From the Murks of the Sultry Abyss (2007). In 2008, ‘Ectoplasm,’ his first exhibit of visual works, received international acclaim, and several of his original paintings are currently held in private collections.

Often combining the worlds of music, art, and activism, Brandon has collaborated with brands such as TOMS Shoes and Hurley. In the spring of 2011, he created a massive mural at the Hurley )( Space Gallery and a series of original t-shirt designs in an effort to raise awareness about single use plastics and their harmful effects on the ocean. Parts of the mural have since traveled to LACMA and The Museum of Monterey where Brandon appeared last year to speak about art and activism. Increasingly aware of the power of public speaking, Brandon recently participated in Chicago Ideas Week where he spoke amongst outstanding panelists about finding inspiration, innovation and his creative process.

A firm believer in the opportunity to “give back,” Brandon is involved with many organizations and charitable causes, and in 2003 along with his Incubus band mates, founded the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, ‘The Make Yourself Foundation’, which has raised over 1.4 million dollars for various philanthropic causes both locally and globally.

Brandon, who is in a constant state of creation, will release a solo project under the name Sons of the Sea produced by acclaimed producer Brendan O’Brien on September 24th. His third art book, So The Echo, is also slated for a September release.

The William Beckett Story

“Music is all about connection,” expresses solo artist William Beckett . “Performer gives to listener, listener gives back to performer. I respect my fans and their inevitable evolution of taste and experience. The only constants in life are change and the necessity of music. THAT is why I don’t make the same record over and over again. I’m not trying to cater to an audience or lower the bar to some level of “relatability”. I write real songs for real people about real experiences. The connect ion is the skin, the meat and the core. The whole apple.”

Having toured nearly non stop for ten years as frontman for The Academy Is…, Beckett has built up an incredibly dedicated and supportive fanbase around the world. Though massively proud of the band’s accomplishments and experiences together, their eventual disbanding as a group in late 2011 allowed for Beckett to begin the next era of his career, as a solo artist. After r eturning home to his roots and family in Chicago, Beckett began pouring his heart and soul into a trilogy of EPs — Walk The Talk , Winds Will Change , and What Will Be , and the Pioneer Sessions album (a collection of twelve acoustic versions of songs from each of the EPs) — all of which was self released in 2012.

Beckett is curren tly recording his debut Equal Vision Records release, a full length album, in his hometown of Chicago, IL with producer Marc McClusky (Weezer, Ludo). “This new record is nothing less than my greatest musical accomplishment,” Beckett confides earnestly. “And a fter writing and releasing the three EPs last year, working with Marc McClusky was a no brainer. While we share the same vision for the album, we are also constantly pushing and challenging each other to lift it to next level.”

Beckett announced his signing to Upstate NY based independent label Equal Vision Records in February 2013. The label’s current roster includes the likes Say Anything, The Dear Hunter, Eisley, and HRVRD; And an equally impressive alumni roster of Coheed & Cambria, Circa Survive , Saves The Day and more. “I’ve been a fan of EVR and its roster since I was listening to The Stryder and Saves the Day in high school,” Beckett shares. “For months I was approached by labels but after the first conversation I knew EVR was a perfect fit; I can make exactly the record I want to make.”

Beckett ‘s first single released as a solo artist, “Compromising Me” off of Walk The Talk EP, rocketed to the top of the iTunes charts, cracking the top 20 and leading all independently released tracks. In the following months, the official release of each of the three solo EPs followed suit in a similar impressively meteoric rise. Beckett ‘s solo music embraces his expansive vocal range, pop sensibilities, quirky yet soothingly hypnotic melodies and distinctive narrative lyrical twists; Offering his most diverse stylings and personal material to date.

As a solo artist, and with The Academy Is…, Beckett has toured with the likes of KISS, Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, Cobra Starship, Plain White T’s, Ma yday Parade and more. Though his early solo tours have focused on an intimate, stripped down – fans can expect future tours to expand greatly over time into a full band, in your face experience with Beckett handing off the guitar and taking over the stage with his signature charismatic and mesmerizing stage presence as a frontman .

Following his time at the studio, Becke tt will next hit the road on the What Will Be Tour , a month long US solo headline run followed by a full Summer on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour.

baronBANDSHOT

Baroness have reemerged after 3 years of touring, writing and recording!!!!

Baroness’ Yellow & Green finds a band that has developed into more than just giants of the metal underground, they are now fully formed hard rock titans. Fans of the band have come to expect nothing less than constant evolution from Baroness and that is precisely what the band has delivered, but in ways no one could have anticipated: the hooks are immediately seared into your brain, riffs that take just one listen to fully lodge themselves in your consciousness and vocals that are sung both heavily and beautifully. Some songs are more delicate than Baroness ever hinted to before while others are straight up arena rockers—yet all along Yellow & Green is unmistakably the Baroness that the world has come to love and look to for Record Of The Year quality rock and roll. It’s not hard to imagine any one of the 18 songs that fill out the Yellow & Green 2CD/2LP being rock radio anthems, and deservedly so. At no risk of hyperbole Baroness’ ‘Yellow & Green’ is on a very short list as one of the new millennium’s best rock records.

Available also in limited edition one time deluxe pressing of 2CD set with expanded artwork. The deluxe 2CD and 2LP sets will each be housed in a heavy duty 28+ page perfect-bound hard covered book set, of course featuring the art of frontman John Baizley.

“…heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely crafted…touches the soul.” – Vin Scelsa

James Maddock affirms his status as a fixture in downtown Manhattan’s folk and Americana scene with ‘Another Life’. As NPR says of the British transplant, “his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy.”

Another Life bridges the mainstream appeal of songwriters like Jesse Harris and Norah Jones and the quirkier sensibility of Loudon Wainwright. With funding entirely from fan contributions through Pledge Music, Maddock worked with producer Matt Pierson, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (who’s played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm) and bassist Tony Scherr (who plays with Norah Jones).

After fronting the Columbia Records band Wood, whose debut Songs from Stamford Hill was featured prominently on TV shows such as “Dawson’s Creek,” Maddock moved from England to New York City in 2003. His 2009 album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for Best Americana Album, while follow-up ‘Wake Up And Dream’ ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV’s (NYC) Listener Poll. He’s performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and is a resident artist at Rockwood Music Hall.

Music Review: Willie Nile – American Ride


By     |   Friday, May 10, 2013


 While Willie Nile has been producing high quality rockin’ albums, off and on, since 1980, he didn’t get on my radar screen until his 2011 The Innocent Ones. In my exuberantly affirmativeBlogCritics review of that exuberantly affirmative release, one of the adjectives I used was “infectious.” That term partly meant I was infected with the hopes there would be more new music coming. At the time, I had the same sort of feeling I had when I first heard Born To Run. It’s not often I get excited about a new discovery anymore.

I was far from alone. To avoid being locked into corporate label squabbles, during 2012 Nile funded the production of American Ride using a successful fan-based PledgeMusic campaign. The plan was to release the album independently this past April. That’s the review copy I have. However, Loud & Proud president Tom Lipsky heard the album and approached Nile about doing a major label distribution deal. The result was American Ride being pushed back to late June with the first big label support Nile’s had since his disappointing Arista days.

Loud & Proud made a few other changes. The cover art for American Ride was redone. Judging from the track list on my copy and what is posted online, many tracks were re-organized. For example, on the independent version “This is Our Time” is the opener, the Loud & Proud version apparently kicks off with the title song. I have no problem with “American Ride,” but when I heard the first lines of “This is Our Time,” I knew Nile’s new album was going to be more than infectious. By the time I’d heard all 12 songs, I knew this collection was even better than The Innocent Ones.

In whatever order you hear the songs, American Ride features Nile on vocals, piano, and guitar, as well as co-producing with Grammy winner Stewart Lerman. He’s supported by his live band—guitarist Matt Hogan, bassist Johnny Pisano, and drummer Alex Alexander. Innocent Ones alumni who came along for the ride included Lerman, Frankie Lee (who co-wrote four tracks this time around), and Eagles’ guitarist Steuart Smith. I can’t help but think all hands on board had a great time plugging in their parts in the studio. Whatever life force drives Nile, it sounds contagious.

It’s dangerous to compare these songs with those by other folks who came before, but it’s clear Nile draws from and is re-invigorating a very rich tradition. For example, the travelogue in time and place begins with “American Ride” with touches of folk rock in a light Springsteen/Dylanesque mode. Nile co-wrote the title song with The Alarm’s Mike Peters. “Life On Bleecker Street” has Ray Davies-like descriptive imagery of residents on the street, but the lyrical hard times are belied by the party atmosphere of the music.

Speaking of The Boss, the piano of “If I Ever See the Light” is pure E Street Band in a triumphant anthem about punching the singer’s fist through that metaphorical light. On the other end of the spectrum, “She’s Got My Heart” is a simple love ballad where his lady has her mother’s smile, her father’s eyes, and the singer’s heart. What if God was one of us? Nile’s ironic answer to that is in “God Laughs,” co-written with Eric Bazilian of The Hooters. In a similar vein, Nile gets punkish with Jim Carroll’s “People Who Die,” recorded as a tribute to both Carroll, who passed away in 2009, and to Nile’s late brother John.

With a guitar nod to “All Along the Watchtower,” Nile sings “God is great, but you’re not” in the obviously angry, topical “Holy War.” Up yours, Jihadists everywhere. Then, “Say Hey” does what the Stray Cats might have done if they had more players onstage, including choruses supported by a jazzy horn section. The jaunty “Sunrise In New York City” gets pushed back to near the end on the new version, but it’s a cakewalk of happy good morning music whenever you hear it.

Appropriately, the ride slows down with “The Crossing,” a ballad soliloquy honoring those who made it to the other side for liberty’s sake. I picture Washington crossing the Delaware, but that’s perhaps my interpretation. Finally, everything comes full circle with vivid imagery of the folky “There’s No Place Like Home.” It’s a Pete Seeger kind of sing-along where Nile tells us Dorothy got it right.

Trust me, trust me, trust me—you’re going to want American Ride in your life. Unless you really prefer gray dour days listening to wrist-slashing music only a Satanist would love, Willie Nile is not only the medicine for what ails you, but he may well get you pumped up to go out and challenge all things earthly, spiritual, and metaphysical. Remember that name—Willie Nile. Pre-order it, pop it in, turn it up, and spread the word. It’s his time.
