Kwazymoto premieres new track

Experimental noise punk duo Kwazymoto have debuted a new single from their forthcoming album My American Family – available Sept 28th with the release show taking place Oct 6th at The Caledonia Lounge in Athens, Ga.

Flagpole magazine premiered the official music video for the track titled Hipster Scum calling the band “one of the most musically and conceptually ambitious bands in town”.

Kwazy-frontman Ian Hemerlein had this to say : “The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Zeke Sayer at Gypsy Farm Studio. We have also returned back to our original two-piece lineup for this album, which is [myself] on guitar and vocals and Kody Blackmon on drums. My sister, Lauren Hemerlein, also performs harp on some of the tracks. I directed the video, which is our first to feature lyrics visually, so I would encourage reading them”.

Hemerlein has also recently released solo material under the name Saint Syzygy.

Stream the music video below and check out Kwazymoto Oct 6th for the release of their third album “My American Family”.

OLD SMOKEY 7″ / OWT NOW

GF005 cover

Creeping into the year [2013], conjured up from the thick Georgia fog, we are pleased to bring you the OLD SMOKEY 7″ [GF005]

“Soothing”, “Strange” and “Stringy” could be the first impression of veteran gypsy ears,  geared and callused from our previous “Rock, Raw and Pop” releases, this [OS 7″] marks the dizzy dawn of what we like to call our “country Strange” sector, by-way of the Gory Gospel truth being, that this fine piece of wax was summoned up, smoked out -if you will, in the summer months of 2012 by Athens native, Jim Willingham (Ham1, Infinity Cat Recordings).

Nestled comfortably behind a banjo, matched with his lyrical approach (for lack of more fitting slang) – melodies are plucked straight out of the mind’s darkest neighborhoods. Fellow stringers Jacob Morris, John Fernandes, Jason Trahan and Robert Lomax join in together, forming a mysterious musical cloud composing of strings, woodwinds and a 70+ year aged bass drum head.

OLD SMOKEY

Old Smokey’s debut 7″ release bares three-KUTS with Side A’s opener “Lazy Eye”, which sounds as if it were originally featured on “The Wickerman” Soundtrack (1973), but some how, rather found itself reincarnated -falling through the laws of time. . . and landing on your turntable, here in this strange modern world.

Allow your senses to fall into the cradle that is “The Natural”, the instrumental stand out of the release, hypnotizing at moments signaled ahead by bells, haunted by whistles.

The B side is totally consumed in the whopping 5+ min trance titled “Weeping Willow” – perhaps the most somber of the the three selections,  featuring rhythmic “trap-doors of change” that complete the knot in this tangled memory of bliss.

Special editions of the 7″ will include an inner CD Sleeve (with art designed by Fernandes’ son) that includes Exxxtra tracks for your own exxxtended adventure into the mystical haze that is Old Smokey.
