Well, the Concessionaires Artificial Interface LP finally made its way to us and boy did it turn out GREAT! Last summer Pete and Brad sent me hours of raw recordings, which I then proceeded to whip into shape, editing and arranging, adding an overdub here and there. They then sent it off to up-and-coming heavyweights Under the Spire, who produced this fantastic vinyl edition. Like ritual music for alien altars, I imagine it as a soundtrack to some forgotten sci-fi classic. Get one while you can. Also keep an eye out for a Sagas 3" cdr later this year on UTS!

Cloud Shepherd are our friends from the Bay Area, an incredible free improv/drone/jazz/unclassifiable quartet that you've got to experience. On their excellent recent live recordings you'll hear wind instruments, theremin, waterphone, bass, voice, percussion, and myriad other esoterically generated sounds that spark the imagination and blend music and myth. This show is definitely not to be missed! Joining them will be locals Eureka (who just released a stellar new cassette on Avant Archive), Sagas, and Inez Lightfoot. See you on the mountain.
