Louisiana's own dark star and Orpheus of the underground, Dax Riggs – the fool in your tarot deck – trippin' over his own tombstone, reaching into the atmosphere and pulling spirits from the air. An alchemy of all roots music, doom metal and glam-punk poetry. It sounds like voodoo, feels like redemption and puts off heat like a burning oil rig. In the service of tears and the ghost of all sorrows…say goodnight to the world.
Ex-deadboy and the Elephantmen and ex-Acid Bath's Dax Riggs released his sophomore solo album Say Goodnight To The World on Fat Possum Records. Recorded over two weeks in his home insane asylum with dancing boys of Austin, TX, Charley Siess (drums) and Kevin Fitzsimmons (bass); co-produced with multi-instrumentalist Robbie Lee (Howling Hex, Baby Dee); and mixed with Eric Wofford (Black Angels, Bill Callahan).

Pretty Pretty Fukt
Pretty Pretty Fukt the Swahili death prayer marching band were formulated at birth by a pair of conjoined twins. After launching a surprise hit single in Uganda notoriety and monetary success prompted the duo to undergo the dangerous surgery to separate their attached organs. Specimen #2, as the male section was labeled, quickly fell into a permanent drug induced psychosis only curable temporarily by the musical musing of his female counterpart hereby known as Divine Oracle.
