Sunday at Townshend's Tea...

This Sunday at Townshend's Tea in Portland, an eclectic show with friends and family. Matt & Dewey are joining forces for a highly-anticipated performance... longtime friends, new collaboration! Inez Lightfoot's gonna spin some yarn, too, and will have a few copies of Riverbottom Nightmare on hand. Also playing are White Leopards and Dracula Spacecraft, both on tour from Los Angeles with their "analog synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines." Eight o'clock kickoff.

Biological Radio #13

Inez Lightfoot - Riverbottom Nightmare

The queen of mountain magic returns with what might be her most-powerful collection yet. Recorded at home over the last few months, Riverbottom Nightmare finds Inez in a highly-focused state, imaginatively tilling the forlorn landscape of underwater cities into fertile earth where the kelp forests thrive on their journey toward the sun. Wielding some new sounds, most notably mountain dulcimer and zither, she carefully crafts a fantasy world into which one can escape the trappings and pressures of our modern society, finding solace in the sound itself. Simply put, these six pieces are hauntingly beautiful and definitely not to be missed. Each tape comes housed in environmentally friendly boxes made from 100% recycled paperboard from local printworkers' collective, Stumptown Printers, with individual handmade artwork by I.L.

Edition of 25 copies

Available for download here.

March Onward

Well, spring is almost here and after hunkering down for what turned out to be a pretty mild winter we have a few things on tap to share.

First off, The Songlines, the new tape by Riviere Amur, is available NOW from Hooker Vision. Word on the street is that these things are going fast, so get one while you can! Expect another one from these ladies later this year on No Kings.

Secondly, if you're in the Portland area on Sunday March 25th, come out to Townshend's Teahouse for a very special show featuring Inez Lightfoot and the debut of an as-yet-unnamed collaboration between old friends Sagas and Plankton Wat. Flyer to come soon!

On the release front, look for cassettes by both Inez Lightfoot and Sagas here on BR in the coming months as well as something from Sagas on Avant Archive. Later in the year Digitalis will be releasing a Sagas cassette and an Inez LP! Speaking of Digitalis, I recently mixed and added some additional sounds to Brad Rose and Pete Fosco's Concessionaires LP, entitled Artificial Interface. It's currently available for pre-order from Under the Spire.

That's all we've got for now. Thanks for staying tuned!
