Australia’s Rock Godess Bianca Has a Little Q&A with Indian Handcrafts

Canadian duo (Brandyn James Aikins and Daniel Brandon Allen) Indian Handcrafts came to my attention last year, thanks to their signing to one of my favourite labels, Los Angeles based Sargent House; home to Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Le Butcherettes, Zechs Marquise + more. They’ve been likened to The Melvins, Death From Above 1979 and Karp since releasing their debut self-titled last (US) spring. One reviewer singing their praises declaring the record “will make your nipples hard and have you looking like a tic-tac smuggler in no time. That’s a promise.” They’ll be making a much anticipated appearance next week at the annual SXSW Music festival.

What kind of music would you say that you make?
BRANDYN: Meatball Music.
DANIEL: Wrestling entrance themes.

What’s your first musical memory?
B: Probably in the womb; Michael Jackson.
D: Watching KISS in The Phantom Of The Park as a child.

Growing up who were your musical heroes and what was it about them that you found so appealing?
B: Musical dance hero: James Brown. His splits were so daring. Drum heroes: Mitch Mitchell, Gene Krupa, David Grohl.
D: Ace Frehely because not only did he rule on guitar but could teleport, shoot lasers from his hands, and do no handed backflips!!

How did you guys meet? And when did you realise you wanted to create music together?
B: I believe we met in an empty factory office space that was being re-fitted into a rehearsal studio. It was across from the Beer Store. Dan played a ditty on the piano and I kicked a kick drum, and he says, “Hey man we should play together.” And I says, “Yeah sure man.” So we did. Then all our siblings joined the band, and none of them could ever get along. So we says, “Hey man you wanna play together? Just you and me?”

Indie Wire Exclusive: Poster For Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s ‘Los Chidos’ Premiering at SXSW

Music and film worlds will be overlapping in more ways than one at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, and we’ve got the exclusive poster debut of The Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez's feature film “Los Chidos,” which will be making its debut in the narrative feature competion. Surprise surprise, this is the fifth film he’s directed, but only the second one to be seen on the fest circuit. His previous effort, “The Sentimental Engine Slayer" played numerous festivals around the world, and was financed by Red Hot Chili Peppers axeman John Frusciante.

The official synopsis reads: Set amid the noisy outskirts of some unnamed Mexican metropolis, “Los Chidos” tells the story of the Gonzales Family. Proprietors of a tire repair junkyard sandwiched between two busy freeways, the Gonzales clan’s days are spent wallowing in lazy, mindless routine. When a confused American industrialist happens into the shop with a flat tire, the family’s place in the shame-free food chain is called into question. Family secrets begin emerging as love blossoms in Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s satirical dark comedy.

The satirical dark comedy was shot with a micro-budget and micro-crew in a Guadalajaran whorehouse and we’ve heard it bears a bit of an early John Waters-esque edge. It’s got a serious bent to it though, as in his director’s statement, Rodriguez Lopez says the film “served as a meditation that exposes the unfortunate size of our otherwise beautiful and unique culture. Namely, the inherent machismo, misogyny, classism and homophobic values passed down by our grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.” He adds, “God is a black lesbian” at the end. Rad. We can’t wait to check this one out. SXSW Film runs from March 9-17.

Kindness Of Ravens Feature/Interview: Gypsyblood

Another band we kept hearing about during last month’s South by Southwest festival was Chicago’s Gypsyblood. The bandformed in 2009 and just released their debut full-length, Cold in the Guestway, which spans a range of sounds—all raw, all rough, and all undeniably appealing. One of our favorite tracks from the album, ”In Our Blood,” is this week’s Song of the Week. Gypsyblood’s Adam James took a few minutes recently to sit down and talk with us about their sound, why Chi-town’s awesome, and getting crapped on at shows. 

Kindness of Ravens: So, alright, first thing’s first: Really awesome record. Original sound too—very raw and rough but still surprisingly melodic and catchy. Though there are seemingly some definite nods to a few bands I adored in my high school years, Jesus and Mary Chain prime among them. Were you two looking for a particular sound or is it just something that was born organically?

Exploding In Sound Review Le Butcherettes SXSW ‘11

The hype surrounding Le Butcherettes leading into SXSW was enough to make them one of my most anticipated bands to catch. Sure, I’ve only been listening to them for about a month, but let’s start with the facts. The latest band to sign to Sargent House &  Rodriguez Lopez Productions (with Omar Rodriguez Lopez producing their record) has been garnering astounding praise for their live shows with the press, and the technical garage punks are going out as main support for Deftones and Dillinger Escape Plan this Spring. On top of that, the band is comprised of the magnificent Teri Gender Bender on vocals/guitar/keys, Jonathan Hischke (Hella,Broken Bells) on bass, and the incredible Gabe Serbian (The Locust) on drums.

COS Interview Gypsyblood SXSW 2011

Have you ever been cornered in the restroom and barked at with questions? No? Well, Chicago’s Gypsyblood has – at least when Cluster 1 and the fantastic duo decided to knock heads in the stall. Well, not literally. Or even metaphorically. Ack! ANYWAY, check out this adventurous interview which has Cluster 1 pestering Adam James and Kyle Victor with questions about their time at SXSW, recording in a structure built by Frank Lloyd Wright, signing with Sargent House, and the band’s upcoming debut, Cold In The Guestway, due out April 12th. Check it out…and then wash your hands, please.

damn, our boys have dirty mouths.
