I’m originally from Hamilton, Canada where I played in Teenage Head and The Shakers. Over the years, I’ve worked in the studio with Daniel Lanois, Alex Chilton, Jack Richardson. I now spend most of my year on the road, and that’s where The Governors and I first met.
‘Radio Rave’ will be the third full-length I’ve done with The Governors since 2013. It was written and recorded at Sparta Sound and produced by Rich Mattson and Craig Teiken over three sessions from January 15 to 16. It comes after last year’s Sweet American Music.

Every year as summer arrives it’s a fight for survival, for me. I work seasonally speaking to german tourists about my homeland, trying to share with them my love for this territory between mountains and sea but it is a lovely job. Not many have the chance to work en-Plein-air in a beautiful country. At the same time it is kind of a course for developing music with a proper focus on melodies, instruments, emotions to convey. So this album has been developed adding few elements every night over a long span of time, creating evolving textures starting from old elements I have in my recording archives, and building up from them. It is also an homage to the low-lands laying between the mountains and the flat-land behind Venice.
Music, mastering, artwork: M. Beckmann.
Composed between May and July 2016.
North-East Italy.

Review of self titled EP from Mercy

In this review, I’m going to be exploring the newest EP from Mercy Weiss, a New York artist whose moniker is just her first name. Her new self-titled collection of five new tracks is a suave, soulful excursion through some elegant musings and production. There isn’t quite a lot of music like Mercy’s in the independent scene, and as such, its induction into the community is most welcome.

‘Mercy’ is a collaborative EP with many of the songs rooted in an effort that Mercy worked on last winter with Christopher Pellnat. He penned a few of the tracks, played some instruments, and helped produce it. The result is a very polished EP; the record doesn’t often misstep, and the recordings are quite slick for the most part. The opening track, ‘Ice Cream’ introduces Mercy as a jazzy vocalist scored by an alternative soul backing. It’s minimalist and soft – perhaps too soft, even.

‘Love Dust,’ I think, may be the finest song on the album. It’s well written, particularly well performed, and it has a unique, even European flair to it that makes it sound like it’s right out of the soundtrack of some obscure French independent experimental art film. The soft nuances of ‘Love Dust’ are also lovely. Ghostly voices accent Mercy as she croons through the track. The track is then followed by ‘Lioness,’ a song that seems more rooted in jazz than anything. It’s definitely experimental, and a treat to listen to.

‘A Torrent’ is a track that Mercy duets with Pellnat on. His introduction to the EP is perfectly timed, and his presence brings an interesting harmony to the experience. I think the vocal mix could be improved, though, because after three especially quiet songs, Mercy’s vocals are suddenly loud. They’re too loud, and they don’t sit in the instrumentation as nicely as the three prior tracks.

The album finishes with a fascinating finale, ‘Evil Baby.’ Centralized around a bass riff and a tight percussion section, the track is remarkably soulful. It’s actually a really pleasant outro, and I think it stretches Mercy’s sound into a wonderfully exciting place at the closer. Thus, I’d love to see her explore her sound even further on the next endeavor.

This is a great little EP. It needs a bit of work in the mix, but that’s completely forgivable given how loveable these five songs are. They’re worth checking out.

We’re Queen Giza. We play evil robot garage psych rock and are based in Brooklyn and Charleston, SC. We just finished and released our first full-length this past Friday the 15th, Machine Master Demon Dream, which is something of a two-act rock opera. In a sentence, the plot is: An old man builds a humanoid in his younger image, implanting his memories; the robot discovers what he is, hunts down and kills creator with some difficulties (Machine Master Side), and then the creator has a postmortem dream/nightmare focused on losing his soul to the robot/demons/devil (Demon Dream Side). The 2nd side is formatted around the stages of sleep/dreaming and the bodily/brain functions, and all songs flow into each other.We’re largely inspired by Pink Floyd’s Animals, Queens of the Stone Age’s self-titled, and Thee Oh Sees’ Mutilator – as well as Charles Beaumont and Thomas Ligotti’s writing.We had a young French artist, Etienne Puaux, do some cover artwork for us, and he came up with an amazing and super detailed split concept.
