Chelsea Wolfe Releases “The Waves Have Come” Video and begins European Tour July 25
Earlier this year, Chelsea Wolfe shared an intense video for her Pain Is Beauty track "Feral Love", which was an excerpt from a 52-minute film called Lone. Wolfe co-wrote the film with director Mark Pellington, who did Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video and clips for Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, U2, and others, plus the films Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies, and more.
In a statement, Wolfe said of the video:
“Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together—he had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions, emotions, telling me to act as if everything I was singing about—disaster and the loss of life and love—that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this cathartic journey through it all.”

Audiotree Live Session: Emma Ruth Rundle
Emma Ruth Rundle is a songwriter who incorporates dark, swathing pedal effects to achieve her tidal wave of sound. Violin-like, layered guitar work pours out of the guitar she wields. Her debut record, “Some Heavy Ocean” is a soul-crushing solo effort putting emotive, potent and genuinely longing voice deep within the mix. Her past work in Red Sparrowes and alter-incarnation in Marriages has funneled her vast skill set into a single unit.
Choosing her words carefully, Emma draws each syllable; working to nail the script deeper into a listener’s very soul. Diving into spiritual territory, the record has the speaker exorcising demons by laying in salt, running away from weighty accursed shoulders and being delivered from the burden of close relationships. Emma Ruth Rundle is powerful and contemplative; her saturated guitar work perfecting her intimate sound. - Filmed and recorded at Audiotree Live in Chicago on June 29, 2014.
Don’t miss seeing her debut European show in Dublin on August 27th at the Sargent House Label show at Button Factory.
Nels Cline + Greg Saunier + Nick Reinhart + Mike Watt = Big Walnuts Yonder - LP to come in 2015
For over a year this has been in the works, four of my favorite players on Earth together in one room making a record that we get to release. I’m still pinching myself that this is real. Nels Cline (Wilco), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose) are Big Walnuts Yonder. They are currently recording with the great Tony Maimone at Studio G in Brooklyn. Stay tuned for much more news about what I can honestly say is my kind of ‘SUPER GROUP’. Oh and we set up a FB Page for them HERE too.
Bandwagon Singapore features the Return of Russian Circles and the House from Which They Came
With Russian Circles coming for the third time to our side of the dirt, we couldn’t help but notice the very firm relationship our own KittyWu Records have with Sargent House, the record label responsible behind so many brilliant music outfits, including the post-metal trio as well. With a little help from KittyWu and Incursive productions, we’ve had the pleasure of having our face melted and minds shattered watching Deafheaven, And So I Watch You From Afar live this year, not to mention catching the mighty Russian Circles twice, back in 2010 and 2012. In all the aforementioned gigs, the Sargent House artists have unquestionably and consistently proven that they’re among the finest in their respective genres, and put up helluva outstanding live shows while at it too.
So just how did Sargent House ascended to the echelons of worldwide prominence as one of the most successful independent labels around, representing all our favorite independent bands? The Sargent House origin story is an intriguing one, with one enterprising individual at the centre of it all: Cathy Pellow. Before a stint at Atlantic records as a freelance music video commissioner, she had formed her own music video production company Refused TV producing videos for the likes of Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Train and most notably Cee Lo Green’s “F*ck You” - and that’s where she formed relationships with the bands that would eventually make it into her label roster.
Adebisi Shank’s “Big Unit” named ” Best New Single of the Week” at the Guardian
The most ridiculous thing you’ll hear this week, and also the best. Notionally, Irish trio Adebisi Shank play math rock, a genre which brings to mind someone called Gerald trying to recite Pi to 3,000 digits with their guitar. Big Unit though sounds, well, silly. Basically it’s Wake Up by Arcade Fire, but with that song’s fey indie “woahs” replaced by an audio sample of the Confused.com robot getting waterboarded, while Top Gun guitars squeal violently away in the distance. Ludicrous. More please.
by Gwilym Mumford for The Guardian.
…… but this critic had some different advice
Adebisi Shank’s new album is now available for pre-order on CD or Vinyl or bundled with a fine T-Shirt - go right HERE to order. The album will be released everywhere on August 12th, but pre-orders will ship out around August 3rd.
