Get hip to these guys

WFMU - Interview With Zach Hill
Total Recall: An Interview With Zach Hill Zach Hill is an innovator. Booming out of Sacramento in the late 90s to make a name for himself playing drums with Hella, Marnie Stern, Wavves, Team Sleep, Boredoms, and countless others, Hill plays the drums like David Lynch writes movies—- frantic, perplexing, troubling—- but ultimately, completely euphoric. Earlier this month, Hill...
NY Times Reviews - Zach Hill's Face Tat
Zach Hill - Face Tat “The Sun City Girls’ blenderizing of intent and influence, mixing shock and comedy, lies somewhere in the background of “Face Tat,” Zach Hill’s new album on the label Sargent House. Mr. Hill is a virtuosic, hammer-blow, fast-footed drummer who puts his best playing in scuffed, shattered, strobing, overdriven songs and soundscapes. A mind-boggling video of one song...
Great Interview "Before The Music Dies" Film Maker...
‘Before The Music Dies’ Filmmaker Speaks Out Ever wonder how a filmmaker with no music industry connections like Andrew Shapterscored interviews with Eric Clapton andDave Matthews for his documentary ‘Before The Music Dies’? In his words, he became a fly on their wall, never gave up, and wanted to succeed deeply. In this interview withCopy Grounds, a new media discussion...

Gypsyblood vs Chicago Police Dept

LISA PAPINEAU "Rainmaker" Glassroom Session
Lisa Papineau performs “Rainmaker” a new song with Chris Tsagakis aka Technology on drums and Michael Morgan also on drums. We truly only got one take of this one and then we got shut down because it was loud. Lisa wanted to shoot at night and after the Fang Island glassroom well let’s just say my neighbors hate me. The shut down did at least bring about one of my favorite...

AP.NET Label Approved Feature
“We’re currently sitting in the trenches of the worst times for the music industry. With illegal downloading, advanced leaks and bands coming and going like the NYSE, we tend to forget that it’s the labels that give their bands the most support. While the term “label” has become somewhat of a tarnished entity due in part to its word association with the...
Pitchfork: Zach Hill - Face Tat
Zach Hill Face Tat [Sargent House; 2010] 7.5 Listen to it: Here Throughout his career, drummer Zach Hill has been especially prolific: in the sheer number of his collaborations (Hella, Marnie Stern, Prefuse 73, Wavves, etc.), in the size of his extended discography, and in the ferocious style with which he assaults his drums. All this constant action has understandably led to moments of...

Slug Magazine Reviews: Tera Melos
Tera Melos Patagonian Rats Sargent House Street: 09.07 Tera Melos = The Flaming Lips + Fang Island + Yo La Tengo Combine technicality with acid-induced songwriting and add a flare for the dramatic and you might get Patagonian Rats, the latest LP by Sacramento trio Tera Melos. Distorted vocals and distorted guitars thrash and spiral over thunderous drum fills everywhere on this record. When I...
SF Weekly Feature Interview - TERA MELOS
Tera Melos Isn’t A Simpsons Reference. Or Are They Just Lying?

They’re supporting their new album, Patagonian Rats, out a month...
Interview: Le Butcherettes talk to Remezcla
[REMEZCLA MUSICA] Le Butcherettes: Butcher Rock Diatribe Teri Gender Bender and Le Butcherettes (“The Butcher Women,” essentially) aren’t the noms de guerre you’d instantly equate with charm and charisma. You might imagine instead a frontwoman who intimidates her audience into submission and a band that inspires its listeners to hold their ears. But Teri and her Guadalajara-based lineup are...
Q&A with Gypsyblood Kyle Risley I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty lousy at this whole music journalism thing. I’m impossibly stubborn when it comes to listening to new music, especially with bands I haven’t read anything about, and can be a bit heavy handed with the “next” button on my iPod. In fact, if Tastemakers wasn’t pressed to find an opener for Tastemakers Presents...

SF Weekly Show Pick - TERA MELOS / SKINWALKER
The Road Less Traveled By Marc Hawthorne The easiest way to get your songs stuck in people’s heads is to write catchy choruses and keep things simple, which is why Tera Melos is such an impressive, anomalous entity. Despite taking all sorts of complicated twists and turns with its fractured, Polvo-esque indie rock, the Roseville outfit’s songs still manage to dig their way into...
