Love from across the pond sounds like this: “Almost taking us back to the very birth of modern guitar music. This is the complete antithesis of so called “manufactured pop”. Naturally it’ll sell a fraction of what that will, but we’d choose this any day.” That’s The Sound of Confusion on Androlafi, the new record by Kurt von Stetten. Right on.
For Kurt von Stetten’s new album, Androlafi, the word is in. And the word is good. Something Daily called the album, “Terrific, all over the place, and quite unlike anything else I’ve heard so far this year.” Visions of the Unexcused says, “Listening to von Stetten’s music is like ingesting a drug for the first time. As your psyche ascends towards the initial drop you release yourself for what’s to come.” Yowza! Get some!
A full-moon-sized thank you to everyone who trekked out in the cold Saturday for The Longwalls‘ Kowloon release show. Epic night. Much love. We won’t soon forget. Meanwhile, kind words on Kowloon continue to roll in. The Noise says the boys “live somewhere between a more rustic Velvet Underground and a less new-post-punk the National.” Aiding & Abetting says the “songs soar and crash with astonishing grace.” We say, thank you!
“The Longwalls have created a solid album that treats melancholy with a bit of twang, a pinch of grunge and a ton of heart.” That’s what the fine folks at mxdwn have to say about the new Longwalls record, Kowloon. It’s a thoughtful write-up, which we really appreciate. Check it out.
“The Longwalls evoke wintry discontent and hope springing eternal within the walls of their latest album, Kowloon… a lovely novella of an album.” That’s how our friends at The Owl Mag describe Kowloon, the new album by The Longwalls (on sale now). They get it. They really get it. Thanks guys!
“At once unsettling, melancholic, and peaceful. Indeed, as the listener reaches the final track a feeling of tranquility has already been delivered.” That’s what Boston Music Vibe had to say about Kowloon, the new record from The Longwalls — on sale today!!
Big thanks to Twangville for these kind words on Kowloon, the new Longwalls record out 12/4. Over at Twangville they often say the Longwalls are deserving of much wider audience. We couldn’t agree more. Help the cause and tell a friend, would ya? Merci.
Early reviews are in, and The Longwalls‘ latest effort Kowloon seems to be hitting a chord. Our Music Savage writes, “Sonically, it is a sharp sound that sounds like a great direction for the band.” And the fine folks over at Mojophenia write, “The Longwalls capture the sound of a dusty repetitious highway and the lonely poetic spirit of adventure.” Kind words indeed. Thanks friends! Kowloon is on sale 12/4.
