Colin Caulfield

It's been a while since I last blogged. This is not because there happens to be less bands out there blog worthy, it just happen that occasionally one feels they are falling through the cracks. Fading into the background of the infamous tubes of the internet can be a little like shooting in the dark. What's the point? Fuck 'em. I am back and with me is the person that triggered this post, the talented and virtually unknown Colin Caulfield. Colin, like myself, seems to be a product of the free music generation, and indulges in creating light indie pop within in his bedroom. When you listen to his music you'll undoubtedly hear bits and pieces of Animal Collective, in their Sung Tong days, as well as some Grizzly Bear. As generic as this sounds, Colin is able to supply that extra something that could be mistaken for soul. I won't take credit for finding Colin, or even discovering him, that is absurd. Was he lost or trapped on a desert island? Who knows. All I know is that I first heard about him through The Great Red Shark. Currently, Colin is working on releasing an album and an EP.

Final Fantasy

Owen Pallet has been recording Heartland, the follow up album to He Poos Clouds, and thanks to his touring in Europe we have been able to catch a few glimpses of the album. Here is a performance of "Lewis Takes Action" at St. Georges Hall in Bristol, England.

The album still does not yet have a release date.

Robert Stillman

Leaving Records last month posted a beautiful composition by Robert Stillman called "On Mothering". Yes it is mother's day. The piece is a collage made from "taped-christian radio broadcasts" that he listened to while living out of a basement in Seattle.

Download it here.

Deerhunter's new EP, Rainwater Cassette Exchange, is set to be released June 8th on Kranky. Based off hearing the EP's title track, the group seems to have taken a slight step back, toward the more cluttered dreamy garage-pop of their first EP, Fluorescent Grey. Definitely looking forward to hearing what else the EP has to offer.

Headless Heroes

Headless Heroes consists of a group of artists working together to create/recreate music for music's sake. The group's lead voice is Alela Diane and the mission is to produce gloriously fresh creations of older songs that may have gotten lost in the cracks of time. The group covers a wide range, spanning over forty years, from "Daniel Johnston, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds back to Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs and The Gentle Soul." The Silence of Love, their sophomore album, will be released May 19th. You can grab the Headless Heroes' cover of Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You In The End" here, at the bottom of the page, for the easy price of an email address.
