Lone Rangers / Mylets feature with live video from ArcTangent Festival

imageimage

(Don’t Miss Mylets on the Sargent House Fall N. American Tour with TTNG and Emma Ruth Rundle - See all Dates HERE )

"It was 16:50 on the Saturday of the ArcTanGent festival. It had been pouring down the night before and now Wellies sales were at an all-time high. Henry Kohen, aka Mylets, was about to go onstage. He had prepared everything a little earlier than expected so now he had 10 minutes to stand around and prepare himself. He seemed a little nervous. He finished his line check, came off stage, ran his hands through his hair and said ‘I need something to take my mind off things’. I had just taken some pictures on my phone of Henry with some of the local farmer’s pigs. I said ‘do you want to see the pigs again?’, to which he happily obliged. Cathy Pellow of Sargent House was there; she was offering to buy him pie, cake, anything he wanted after he finished his set. Hank Tremain of TTNG was telling random jokes to keep spirits up. After these brief interventions, Henry walked away, presumably to catch a moment with himself, then walked back onto the stage by himself and played in front of the thousands of festival punters… by himself. If Henry was indeed nervous, he had more right to be than any other musician at the festival. He was taking on the role of at least three musicians, maybe seven.

And So I Watch You From Afar grace the cover of the debut Print Magazine of The Thin Air

imageAnd So I Watch You From Afar were honored to be asked to be on the very first cover for the debut in print of The Thin Air Magazine. The October issue has a feature story where the band talks about their upcoming album which will be released on Sargent House in 2015.

Also check out the video interview with Johnny Adger with live footage from ASIWYFA shot while on a tour stop in Nantes, France this Summer.


Adebisi Shank officially close for business. A fond Farewell to our beloved Shank

One of the best Irish bands who existed, and one of my favourites since I started this site in 2006 have called it a day officially today. Having just released their third album, Adebisi Shank have announced the end of the band as they go out with two final Dublin shows on Thursday, September 25th and Friday night the 26th.

They blew my mind on many an occasion and they leave three stunning albums, an amazing debut EP, memories of masks, sweat and euphoria left on the floors of venues they decimated. And of course, Colin Skehan. With his top off.

Here’s their statement.

Don’t miss Tera Melos on tour now see all Dates & Details HERE

Live Review:
Before delving into a set of melding together chaos and harmony, Tera Melos guitarist Nick Reinhart grabbed his microphone to yell “DENTAL PLAN!” at the crowd. A few hesitant Simpsons fans immediately understood the reference, mumbling back to him, “Lisa needs braces!” It is no secret Tera Melos are some of the biggest Simpsons fans. Their gear is covered in memorabilia and their merch is often printed with select characters from the show. Just like The Simpsons, Tera Melos has created their own universe from scratch. For Tera Melos, horror and the absurd collide. A Halloween decoration of a man hanging on fishhooks from his eyelids sat on the edge of the stage. While not “present” for this tour, fan favorite Hot Dog Man was projected on the screen behind the band (most recently featured in the Sunburn music video). Most important to the Tera Melos universe, is their unparalleled sound.

Kicking off the set, Reinhart began shredding some incredibly wonky riffs, while simultaneously manning his expansive pedal board. Without so many of these pedals, there is no way Tera Melos could achieve their unique, alien sound. After the preluding guitar freak out, the band began playing full songs. Most of the set consisted of cuts from their latest album, X’ed Out. While the songs off X’ed Out tend to be more reserved compared to older Tera Melos material, the band kicked these songs into a higher gear for a live setting. For the whole night, drummer John Clardy seemed to be adding as many fills as possible as fast as he could, while keeping up with incredibly technical rhythms. Watching Nathan Latona’s bass playing was equally exciting, watching him effortlessly walk his fingers up, down, and even off the fret board.

Tera Melos graced the audience with a couple new songs. While X’ed Out felt like Tera Melos was relatively experimenting with a more minimal sound, these new songs sound more technical, akin to Patagonian Rats. The highlight of Tera Melos’ set might have been Patagonian Rats’ single “Frozen Zoo”. Watching the process of this song being played was way more fascinating than it sounds on record. Reinhert began the song looping noisy, seemingly random riffs. Slowly these riffs began to compliment each other, forming a coherently beat and melody. That is the very essence of Tera Melos: the unsuspectingly weird coming together to create something great. - See All photos and Full show Review HERE

Ravishly.com “Ladies We Love” Interview with the head of the House Cathy Pellow

imageimageWhat happens when an ambitious woman gets frustrated with the “old boys club” in the music management industry? She starts her own company, creates a badass roster of undeniable musicians, and earns herself a spot at the round table.

That, at least, is what ambitious woman Cathy Pellow did—and with resounding success.

As a band manager, Pellow realized she’d had enough of trying to work with male-centered, bureaucratic label companies to get her artists represented. So she changed the game by founding Sargent House. The company serves as a two-in-one band manager and label for hand-picked musicians, promoting their work while giving them artistic freedom.

I’ve been following Sargent House since 2010, and am always impressed by the quality of music the label consistently produces. Sargent House fights the good fight for talented artists and the consumers who love them, and I personally could not be more thankful for it.

Pellow chatted with Ravishly about how she can tell if a band is great, the problem with Nicki Minaj ass talk, and why it’s OK to love an underground band that makes it big.
