JEFF MANGUM / ASHEVILLE NC

Neutral Milk Hotelien,  Jeff Mangum huffs and puffs his chest  for two soul’d out appearances at The Grey Eagle while snow flakes tease the smokers outside.    2000 lungs stand shoulder to shoulder, hypnotized by muscle memory to use their heavenly flesh-pipes, forming a choir.  Both of Mangum’s evening croons were topped off by the surprise entrance of Scott Spillane and Laura Carter as the magical mystical horn-duo,  pushing out the final notes of a truly stunning performance.  Photos / Correspondence : WJAY

NEW SOUND OF MUSIC TAPES

themusictapes40watt2013

On the patio of Flicker Theatre,  Johnny Tumble had fumbled his White Russian,  resulting in an electric explosion of ivory that rained down on Zeb’s left slipper. As clockwork,  we stumbled inside to catch The New Sound of Numbers‘ set, which was riddled  with fiddles of the groove that left us in a trance and feeling some what tribal.  Quickly out into the 31 degree Athens night and (approximately) 13 giant steps to the left  and you will arrive at the 40 Watt club,  and on this particular night they are hosting  The Music Tapes’ performance of their “Traveling Imaginary”  touring eXXtravagansa.

JulianRobbie, and friends set up a circus tent inside the club, complete with flying bells,  moons, horns, whistles and the bowing of a banjo.   God help any poor soul that gets hold to a bad trip and much bliss can be expected to those settled comfortably underneath the ‘big top’ as something truly interesting and remarkable is happening before you.   Then, all of a sudden – you count down from 5 and it’s over, the lights are out and the tent is gone.

Catch The Music Tapes and their Traveling Imaginary show soon in and town near you // TOUR DATES
