Realized a week or two ago that I hadn’t played either of the new Type LPs (first two songs of the show). Shame on me. Also, who knew Chuck Johnson could make killer electronic drone?

AGB Radio (June 29, 2015) – Label Spotlight: Sunshine Ltd.

agb_sun
 

Sunshine Ltd. is dead. As sad as that is, the world is a better place because of what it bestowed upon us: 31 killer fucking records. I’m sure I would have done a Label Spotlight on Sunshine at some point, but its demise made me get my shit together. So I asked Josh Mason (drone extraordinaire and Sunshine monarch) to elaborate on his intentions. I read his obituary for Sunshine on air, but there’s also a transcript of it below.

There are still a handful of items left in the Sunshine shop (not just the 3 that I mentioned on air) that are on sale and wholly worth your cash. And even though the Sunshine site says Mason’s Alone In The Kingdom is out of stock, you can nab a copy on his personal Bandcamp page. Again, highly recommended.

I mistakenly mentioned on air that Sunshine had a Bandcamp page where you could still stream everything. This is not the case. You can stream one song from each release on the official Sunshine Ltd. page, and Josh has some of his work streaming on his Bandcamp, but that’s it. Sorry for leading you astray.

Update on Mason’s next book/download release: It’s called Hellified Irie? and it’ll be out on FET Press, hopefully within a month or two. It’s a “black and white art book made of found images, my own photography and writings/musings made while recording [the music].” The book is the physical component of the release, the music will only be available digitally.

If Sunshine Ltd. is new to you, you’re in for a fucking treat. And if you’re already familiar, then this will serve as a sweet swan song.

Rest in peace, Sunshine Ltd.
 
 

The reason I decided to halt Sunshine activities was two fold. 1) It had a little bit to do with money but mainly (2) it had a lot to do with time and energy (or lack thereof).

I came up in a time when you could (try to) order records from randos by sending cash inside of birthday cards to an address in the back of a magazine and praying that you actually got something in return. On a rare and awesome occasion you’d get a personal note back from the artist(s) and that made it even more important because the whole thing wasn’t instantly gratifying and you made a connection. Sunshine was something I felt very passionately about, and I wanted to try and make something that was of good quality and value that people would connect with in a similar and important way. I told myself when I started that if I could reach just one person with what I was doing it would be worth it.

Unfortunately, times have changed and at the end of the day, I just did not have the mental energy to keep up with all the people/things/places I needed to know in order to move this kind of physical art in a digital world. All along I have been working full time and treating SLTD as a part time thing (but with full time ambition). Little by little I felt overwhelmed by this idea that people don’t really want to sit down, physically, with records (albums) and their concepts anymore. The people (bless ‘em) who write about music have to have eyes in the back of their skulls and 4 arms in order to cover it all. I’m not sure how many times I answered the question “Does the tape/record come with a download?” At some point, it all collided and I just decided that the world didn’t need another label… and more importantly, it didn’t need another one that was operating at less than full capacity. There are a lot of great labels out there run by people with great visions who are going at it 110%, which is more than I could offer.

It’s possible that I might do something else in the future, but for now there are other creative things I want to explore and learn. Over the years Sunshine provided me with the ability to meet all kind of listeners and artists from around the world… and therefore I accomplished everything I set out to do. I learned a great deal and I have nothing but gratitude for all who bought records, those who recorded them, and those who sang their praises. Thanks to everyone for being excellent.

So fucking psyched about the new Jannick Schou record. No it’s not the mega drone from his last record but this technoise direction is fuckin killer. Also, Walks On The Beach is Mike Shiflet & Jerry David DeCicca, self described “Appalachian noise folk,” so yeah, that’s the fuckin best.

I’m Gonna Be A Dad: The State Of AGB Address

antigravitybaby
 

Yup, it’s really happening. I created another human with Elise. One of the things I swore I’d never do is now being done. So fucking psyched about this!

And in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve only reviewed 2 records in 6 months. I’ve had hard time getting back into the review game after the winter break and I guess I should officially acknowledge that now.

Other than having a baby on the way (never thought I’d be saying that), I’ve also got tons of other huge stuff going on, like I’m also looking for a new job and a new home, so, very tumultuous times (in the best possible way), and I don’t see myself jumping back into record reviews any time soon. I’m still having a blast with Anti-Gravity Bunny Radio on BFF.fm and will definitely keep that up for a while.

So what I’m saying isn’t much of anything. Over the past 7+ years of running AGB, I’ve finally realized I shouldn’t try to make any declarations of what I think it should be or what direction I’ll be going in, because it always just ends up stressing me out. I’ll just be letting it go wherever, doing the radio thing, maybe a review every now and then, who knows. I just wanted to let you know I don’t plan on dropping AGB entirely right now but I’ll definitely be way more busy in the upcoming months.

Also, I’m gonna be a fucking dad!

AGB Radio (June 8, 2015)

I’m back! 6 weeks is a long time to be away from the radio. Even though I did the live show with Andrew Weathers at BFF.fm filling in for The Feelies (which I should be posting soon!), I still feel like I’m way behind. Remedying that stat. Tons of awesome shit this time around and lots more in the cue.

Snows On The Go

road trip route
 

I just turned 30. I’ll have completed my Master’s Degree in a week. My wife & I have approval from both of our workplaces. We’re going on a month-long cross-country road trip for the whole month of May. Starting in Salem, MA, headed to Texas by way of Nashville and a dude ranch in Arkansas, all along the southwest, up the coast of California, through Yellowstone, the Black Hills, and the Badlands, and back home, visiting friends and crazy places along the way.

I only mention this because we’ll be keeping anyone interested updated over at Snows On The Go (our last name is Snow). Feel free to follow along. I’ll be sharing stuff on the regular Twitter, Instagram, etc, but mostly just this travel blog, and hopefully not like every day or anything, gonna try to enjoy shit sans-technology if that’s even possible nowadays.

Also, more relevant to you, this means that AGB Radio will be re-runs for all of May. I’m sure you have some catching up to do anyway. See you in June.

Album Review

PREMIERE STREAM: Jenks Miller & Rose Cross NC – Music For Snowdrifts (Ba Da Bing, 2015)

Jenks Miller - Music For Snowdrifts album cover
 

 
 
I’m not really the kind of site that does premieres or news or anything “breaking,” which should be pretty obvious to regular readers. But when Jenks Miller contacted me asking if I wanted to premiere the stream of his new project’s debut record, I fucking jumped at the chance. So, thanks x10000 for this, Jenks.

Jenks is the main dude behind Horseback, the drone turned black psych band that’s now on Relapse, and he’s done plenty of other shit too, like Mount Moriah and various solo things and collaborations. This new one, Jenks Miller & Rose Cross NC, is “kind of a semi-solo project,” having performed live in his hometown North Carolina area with an assortment of helping hands. But on this debut, it’s just Jenks and his partner Elysse Thebner making a holy transcendent sound. Music For Snowdrifts is some megachill drone psych folk that’s hazy as fuck, sounding like the musical embodiment of a daydream, mostly just a wobbly guitar accompanied by some tender percussion, subtle synths, and soft vocals. Jenks is always upping his game, even when he’s shifting gears, and Snowdrifts is no different, it’s just absolutely fucking killer, zoning out into the shimmering golden sky, a sweet serene bliss obscured by gauze & fuzz, more or less a straightforward sound that’s executed perfectly, I can’t recommend this one enough, regardless of your familiarity with Jenks’ previous material or your fondness towards psych, this is fucking magnificent on every level.

So stream the whole thing here and then stop by Ba Da Bing because this is available as of today. Get on it.

AGB Radio (March 30, 2015) – Label Spotlight: Students Of Decay

students of decay logo
 
Not that Students Of Decay is technically underrated, I mean they’ve got over 100 releases in 10 years and were just featured as Label Of The Month in Resident Advisor, but I still feel like Alex Cobb’s label generally hasn’t gotten enough love. But maybe that’s changing, some of the last few releases have been super successful, so perhaps SoD will be the next Important. Either way, this label is the fucking best. Here’s some of my favorite records they’ve put out, in roughly chronological order, starting way back in 2006.

AGB Radio (February 23, 2015) – 30th Birthday Special

I turned 30! I thought I’d celebrate by playing some of the songs that have most influenced my taste in music and the paths I took to discover new sounds. This is in roughly chronological order and I only went as far as 2006 because anything later than that seemed to be missing the idea of “influential.”
