Trash Humpers screening at Starz Film Center Tonight and Tomorrow Night

"Trash Humpers follows a small gang of sinister ‘elderly’ peeping toms through the shadows of a nightmarishly familiar suburban landscape. Their shocking and sociopathic behaviour makes for unbearably compelling viewing that scorches itself onto the mind’s eye." - Warp

Screening at 10pm Tonight and Tomorrow Night (June 11th and 12th) @ the Starz Film Center. Also, check out www.trashhumpers.com for some crazy disturbing ringtones!!

Jaydiohead "Ignorant Swan" video, like meat and potatoes for your ears and eyes.

Check out the new video for the Jay-Z/Radiohead mashup "Ignorant Swan," produced and directed by Jason Cacioppo! Now, normally I don't subscribe to any altering/covering/remixing of Radiohead because, really, who can do it better, but....I'm fully supportive of this creative undertaking. And I think this video is pretty nifty. Put it on your face. And when you're done, head over to  Jaydiohead.com and download both albums, Jaydiohead and Jaydiohead: The Encore for free and put them on your ears.

Review: "The Ghost Who Walks" by Karen Elson

Artist: Karen Elson

Album: The Ghost Who Walks

Glims of glamorous endangered fingertips spread past casts of white 60s stone lamps. Shrines of ointment pointing to wayward golden goddesses enhanced by vintage materials, dancing in the rain, pearls flying in circles to the backbeat. Midway shifts to a tramp-like wallop like ghosts, predicting the future, declaring it all meaningless. Hardly. Its malleable, meek, and spry, clawing gently at your thighs. Full whimsy, almost folk, weaving poles of ribbon, ribbons of color. The great moments are clouded by the good, but there is enough good oozing through a few listens for a few more. From psychedelic scores to dangerous harmonical whorish echos beyond mid-level story-telling, Karen Elson takes us places, then when we get there, pushes our faces in the dirt, steps on the back of our knees and slowly scrapes our backs until the first sight of blood, all while keeping her dress white. "Ghost" finishes up on a western tip with "The Last Laugh," as if to pay homage to her roots...but perhaps sharing the beauty of her true talents as this is nearly the best song (or Lunasa), and it leaves you wanting more of it...or maybe that's just my current mood. Ghosts captures something for all occasions, or at least one good occasion. Intentional? Accidental? Mysterious? Either way, give us more like this one, Karen Elson...and watch out for the moon, its right behind you!  -David A. Kurtz

Natural Selection CD Releases & other worth while decisions.

Natural Selection does not live in a cave. Natural Selection is not a conglomerate band based on loose neck ties, loafers, and a nice bike. You won't hear anything like them in this town or even the next city along your journey to Pacific Play Land. But when you get there, Natural Selection gives you new hope by tracking down all the good stuff left and making songs out of it. I hope you will all join us for what will be a metaphysical experience at the Meadowlark bar. And I don't mean that in a cheesy way. I mean it in a really awesome way.

Their new album is like putting on a new shirt in the store where you just bought it and wearing it around town. Its a gift to the lion tamer and the bearded lady, celebrating the purpose of celebrations, where everyone gets their own cake...not just a piece. Attention Colorado Residents or Visitors! Here is your show information: Natural Selection "White Picket Fences" Release Party (OUTDOOR SHOW!!) Meadowlark Bar June 4 w/MMCIII, Wire Faces, & Pirate Signal Get there early. This will be a big one! RSVP HERE: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=118288514877858&ref=ts other CD release performances include: May 30th in St. Louis, MO June 3 in Lawrence, KS June 5 @ Surfside in Ft. Collins. Please come to one of these shows and get the new album "White Picket Fences." Its one of those that will make you think "well, gosh darn it, that's what I've been missing from my life." And then it won't leave your player for 6 months. Be well.

Wire Faces Self Titled Debut Album Out Now!

Wire Faces

Formed in late 2008 from the ashes of The Jimi Austin, Wire Faces is the brainchild of guitarist Ian Haygood and drummer Shane Zweygardt. In 2009 they added world renowned chef Menyus Borocz on bass, and felt a sudden kinship reminiscent of 80s movies and popcorn, lace and undergarments, or Trivial Pursuit on Sunday. Soon Wire Faces began to bury their previous endeavors in swooping clouds of mysterious neo-retro alternative pervasion. The transition maintained the hearts and minds of past fans, while attracting passionate embraces from new crowds hell-bent on a good time. Their new self titled album is now available at all digital outlets and physical copies will be available at both their cd release shows this weekend: Fri May 7th @ Meadowlark Bar, Denver, w/ Achille Lauro, Astrophagus and Milton Melvin Croissant III Sat May 8th @ Road34, Fort Collins, w/ Tommy Metz and M. Pyres See you there!!
