So exciting news in the Isis world, as well as in the Pelican world

Isis has released the title, artwork and track listing of their new album.  You can read more about that here.  As well, if you head over to Aaron Turner’s blog you can see the artwork split into two different pieces, giving you a better understanding of how he composed it.

Pelican has signed to a new label, are working on a new EP (in my new home of Seattle) and have a string of new tour dates up.  Check that out here.


Calling all Isis Fans! – Part Trois

Posted in news with tags , on July 24, 2008 by sae

So check this, straight from Isis’s myspace blog

“We’ve been working hard on the new record. All five of us sweating away in a small windowless room in downtown Los Angeles. We’re making good progress and will have more (and more exciting) news about that to report soon!”

Who else is stoked?

And word is the Not in Rivers, But in Drops single will be out September 9th.

Calling all Isis Fans! – Part Deux

So Isis has done some restocking of their webstore.  I’m not sure what this means for their stock of t-shirts and what not, but what I do know is that they now carry some of the honey colored copies of the Live IV vinyl.  They also have copies of the Holy Tears single on vinyl.  It  comes in blue or clear.  It says that it’s an import and whenever I’ve looked in the past months since the single was released, I’ve only seen it available in vinyl format on European websites.

I highly encourage picking up the Holy Tears cd, whether you choose the vinyl format, or the cd.  The Melvins/Lustmord remix of Not in Rivers, But in Drops is the definition of how heavy music like this should be remixed, and the live version of Holy Tears with Justin Chancellor (from Tool) is absolutely beautiful.

So go go go.

So Live IV has been officially released on vinyl in in 12×2 format.  The record is being put out by Robotic Empire records which the same super cool family run record company that put out the Shades of the Swarm 12×12 box set, as well as a ton of other cool music so check ’em out.

If you don’t know, the track listing goes

“Gentle Time” @ WMBR in Boston, MA
“Glisten” @ The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA
“CFT” @ CBGB’s in New York, NY
“Celestial” @ CBGB’s in New York, NY
“Improv I (Endless Nameless)” @ The Rotunda in Philadelphia, PA
“False Light” @ The Middle East in Cambridge, MA
“Weight” w/Justin Chancellor (Tool) & Troy Ziegler @ The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA

This is a limited run of 1030 (103 Black, 403 Chocolate and 524 Honey) so get one while you still can.  As of right now the black copies have already sold out.  There’s 190 of the chocolate and 406 of the honey left so hurry up and head over to the Robotic Empire Store and grab yours.

Also available is the new Isis toy produced by UniPro and UNKL.  It’s available at the Isis webstore so head on over.  I got mine a short while back (speedy shipping).  I like it a lot.  It has the mosquitio logo on each side of the rotating head and the packaging is pretty cool.

lots of stuff’s been going on lately.
the new Mindless Self Indulgence came out.
new Nine Inch Nails came out which is totally free, check out the NIN website.

what i want to talk about right now is Boy Kicks Girl. i plan to write more extensively about these guys in the future, but for those who don’t know they are a long defunct bay area punk band that existed from 1996-2000. in their time they made a lot of noise and music. the three member punk piece was straight forward, gritty, and really angry about their ex-girlfriends. now, i know, i know – you’re wondering what emo crap this is right? but it’s not. at the moment i can’t put my finger on how to explain what separates BKG from today’s music so you’re just going to have to trust me and go check them out.

getting to the point though, their lovely singer Kevin drummer Brett has recently posted both their albums up for free download, along with a few recorded live shows and all sorts of other demos, covers, and b-sides so head over to their the Boy Kicks Girl myspace page and check out their blog for details.

also, my favorite San Jose band The Albert Square recently threw one of their songs up for download on their myspace as well so give them a listen. they’re new, a lot of fun, and you’ll be missing out if you don’t hear their music and go to the shows, so check em out here.

oh, and on a final note, 12 Angry Months by Local H comes out tomorrow so go pick that shit up from your local record store, it’s been a long time coming for a new H record.
