Typhoon

Dear Reader,

I once came very close to dying (bug-bite, failed organs), and though my life was spared thanks to thanks to modern medicine and a kidney given to me by my father, nonetheless I live with a persisting sense that my time is borrowed. My resolution--what I intend to do with my finite allotment-- is to reach some small, yet conclusive understanding of my life in particular and the world in general; an understanding accomplished, in part, through a combination of music and words.

The last record we made, Hunger & Thirst, is a record that purposefully confuses physical sickness with ontological sickness, i.e. that most desires are only symptoms of the desire to be someone else. This new record picks up where we left off, though this time "purposefully confusing" the idea of time as a place. It imagines that my past is a composite of old houses and apartment buildings, that my memories are these little artifacts strewn about, and then there's me with a single candle, picking up the artifacts one at a time and examining them by the dim light.

Songs as personal as these perhaps ought to be burned or buried rather than be paraded before an audience. But there is something transfigurative in playing music with so many close friends--what starts out as a solemn, solitary attempt is turned into something both communal and cathartic. I think we even have fun at times.

A New Kind of House (the title itself is borrowed from the brilliant poetry of Zach Schomburg) was artfully recorded on location (our house) by repeat-collaborator Paul Laxer; the artwork was beautifully realized by Ricky Delucco, and we have Tender Loving Empire to thank for so tenderly helping us put out a record a second time.

Home By Hovercraft

Home By Hovercraft is a theatrically and classically influenced rock band led by husband and wife duo Seth Magill (vocals/ tuba) and Shawn Magill (piano/ vocals/ xylophone). Rounded out by Seth’s sister Abbey Magill (step dance), Max Hartman (drums, also lead singer for Mur), Johnny Sequenzia (mandolin/ harmonica), and guest artist Becki Howard (violin, also of Sarah Jaffe, Bethan, The Crash That Took Me) they’ve been compared to indie bands with a classical/ folk twist like Beirut, The Dresden Dolls, The National, and Tilly And The Wall.

Wild Moccasins

With a collection of songs that web male-female vocals of couple Zahira Gutierrez and Cody Swann, as well as pop-infused percussion and string work, Wild Moccasins, a quintet of 20-somethings from Houston, TX, offer a sound that balances a musical guile beyond the band's years.

Wild Moccasins are perhaps best known in their native Texas for their uncanny ability to sell-out live shows. The mere release of their EP,Microscopic Metronomes & then Full Length, Skin Collision Past,actually resulted in some significant amount of press noting how they are one of the few local acts that have no trouble selling out a show.The explanation behind their passionate fan base can be found in the one aspect of Wild Moccasins that is most prevalent: their energy. The passion for music that all five members emit both in the studio and on the stage is one to marvel at.
