Kurt Vile by Mara Robinson

Kurt Vile and Purling Hiss @ The Grog Shop 4.2.2016

Kurt Vile is chill, so fucking chill. Words crawl out of his mouth in a slacked drawl. Notes from his guitar have so much reverb they sound as if they had wobble their way through jelly on their way from the stage to your ears. Kurt Vile is so fucking chill, he inspires conversations between strangers on the amazingness that is legal weed in Colorado. The truth is, it takes a lot of work to be that chill. Vile alternates nimble finger picking with all out assaults on his guitar.

Jam On It! New Jams by Cat’s Eyes, Yuck, and Purling Hiss

Why doesn't anyone make lists on the internet any more? Here's a list, a list of some of my favorite downers in rock: Nick Cave, Elliot Smith, Robert Smith of The Cure, Spiritualized's J Spaceman, Faris Badwan of The Horrors and Cat's Eyes. Faris who?

A Jam Packed Tuesday with Deaf Wish, Negative Scanner, Terry Malts, and Purling Hiss

20 some years ago, Seattle was the city kicking out essential jams on what seemed like a weekly basis. Today, the city on everyone's lips should be Melbourne, Australia, it's not, but the rate at which this locale long off the Rock 'N' Roll map continues to produce the goods, it's becoming harder and harder to ignore. What began with Eddy Current Suppression Ring, has grown to include recent Merge Records signees, The Twerps, ECSR offshoots Total Control and Boomgates, Dick Diver, Lower Plenty, UV Race, and likely a host of others.
