The Parenthetical Girls have a new album coming out - Privilege Pt 1 - On Death and Endearments - a 5-song EP-ish sized affair of epic baroque pop that is the first of 5 - which completes an odyssey-esque album - eventually - in about a year.
You can just download the single "Evelyn McHale" here
Or watch the video:
Titus Adronicus - an indie rock band named for a Shakespeare play - are now tackling the American Civil War for subject material of their forthcoming work: The Monitor - which came out just a few days ago...
To get a taste:
Titus Adronicus - "Four Score and Seven" - Part 1 and Part 2
Info here and here
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion are getting the re-issue treatment and are starting things off on March 30th with Dirty Shirt Rock n Roll - The First Ten Years on Majordomo Records (by way of Shout Factory). There'll be plenty more written about that later on - but I think it's worth your time to take in a marvelous interview/conversation facilitated by one of Spencer's contemporaries and comrades in the realm of intense live presentation, a fellow soul-loving skinny white boy who dresses sharp and waves his thick black hair around: Ian Svenonious (most renowned of Make Up fame), via his Soft Focus interview series via VBS TV online.
More soon.....thanks for reading....(listening, watching...)
