The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers are Here!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know, we know, we know… It’s about dang time we got The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers slaying it down in the DHR mix! We’ve certainly meant to for a good long time now, and have been working on it – it’s just like, you know, sometimes it takes a day to read a book, sometimes a year… sometimes an hour to devour a meal, sometimes a blink… Well, we’ve done read the book and said our [...]

The Blank Tapes – Slow Easy Death lp Now Playing!

Leagues more prolific than a Lebanese suicide bomber, The Blank Tapes spit out albums like sunflower seed shells; only, you can actually do something productive with the pile up. Dig on the new LP “Slow Easy Death” and see what I mean. The familiar Matt Adams brand of catchy-tune-driven, more SF than LA west coast psychedelia opens its arms a bit wider to allow room for more 7-8 minute meditations on fixations for a scarily relaxing, slow easy death. Do [...]

New Elison Jackson LP – Do Not Fear To Kill A Dead Man

Glimmering blue giver of life, seductive swallower of souls, your precarious curves shroud the interminable abyss while separating and connecting the world. The sea is a dichotomous beauty.

Elison Jackson

Named after front man Sam Perduta’s late grandfather and New England fisherman, Connecticut-based band Elison Jackson appears to also draw their bounty from the depths. With a type of melodramatic indie-folk, their sound evokes a haunting comfort where an eerily emotive essence shakes hands with the sweet and savory memories of [...]

Blues Helping from Downtown Train and The Hollow Legs

There’s so much great music all around us, styles for every color, shade, and gradient of the rainbow; sounds, mixtures, and swirls for every appetite.

Download Language of Shapes!

Out of South Korea, Language of Shapes has landed on DHR. They call it “Psych-fi, sci-folk” coming from “A psychedelic rainbow-fire-powered mandolin band, with bass guitar, djembe, and the occasional flute.” We call it delightful, bad ass, and necessary.

Listen here, pick up a download copy here, and decide for yourself.

Dirty Beer Pairing Series, vol. 13: Dogfish Head Birra Etrusca Bronze & Zenda Marie

For the latest installment of DHR’s Dirty Beer Pairings, where we pair beer with music, we’ve discovered a happy meeting between Dogfish Head Birra Etrusca Bronze and Zenda Marie.

We’re not entirely sure at this time, but while we believe the folk duet Zenda Marie was active in Los Angeles for a bit, it appears they’re currently based around the suburbs of Sacramento. At any rate, their debut LP Ancient breathes with the eternal resonance of an ancient magic born from [...]

The ABIGAILS, songs of love and despair on DHR

Newer project from Warren Thomas (lead singer of Grand Elegance and tambourine player of The Growlers), fellow former GE mate Kyle Mullarky, Ellie Mae and co. brings a record reminiscent of the despondent beauty conveyed through Alexander “Skip” Spence’s Oar (1969).

Thomas’ lead vocals overlaying what the band refers to as “drunken nylon string twang and pilled out country fusion” embodies an LP which will have you bobbing along through the dregs of mirthless hope atop a black horse in a [...]

So Many Wizards – Warm Nothing LP in Hipster Heaven

When So Many Wizards created their new LP Warm Nothing, perhaps little did they realize they were also creating Hipster Heaven. Or so we hear. The grapevine provides that this record is adored by men, and that said men are adored by women who adore both the record as well as the men for adoring it.

So what’s the deal? Why is Warm Nothing connecting so well with this branch of neo-hip counter culture youth?

The Amazon.com editorial says, “So Many Wizard’s [...]
