Watch: The Man Who Fell From to Earth (2011)

I shouldn’t really have to introduce Brian Eno to you, but (finger comes from hip and points to the sky with passion)  if you’re unfamilair, how lucky are you that there’s a two-hour documentary all about the composer, ambient pioneer, producer, musician and cohert of Roxy Music, Robert Fripp, Cluster, David Byrne, et al. streaming below?...

Eraserhead OST Gets Deluxe Vinyl Treatment

Eraserhead OST Gets Deluxe Vinyl Treatment

Holloweyed favorites Sacred Bones Records have just unveiled details of a deluxe vinyl-only reissue of the OST of one of the underground film world’s favorites, 1977′s darkly surreal Eraserhead. A canon-topper in its own right, it was the feature debut from David Lynch, who wrote, produced and directed. The film’s significance and technique is well discussed, so I won’t go down that...

Some Able Brewing with KONE

Here at The Holloweyed, we really love coffee. The smell, the craft, the process, the feeling of a fresh cup, it’s quite the serious love affair. Hand-in-hand with upstart music imprints and bands we seek to showcase there are some similarly wonderful and driven folks in the burgeoning regional coffee scene. Roasters like Boxcar (Boulder,...

Download: Arbutus Presents: The Montréal Compilation Vol. 1

I’ve had my eyes and ears on Montréal-based collective Arbutus Records since mid 2010. The small label began in a DIY loft space (very Montréal as I’m told after a recent trip to Vancouver where I camped it with friend and Warp Records-signed producer Babe Rainbow) and has since grown into a disc and cassette-releasing business...
As Above, So Below: A Visit to Actual Pain

As Above, So Below: A Visit to Actual Pain

Formed six years ago by designer/musician/writer TJ Cowgill, clothing label Actual Pain has breached the clogged world of always-borrowed, nostalgic-heavy tee shirt designs to establish itself as a nimble, yet forceful player headed forward not only because of their aesthetically pleasing, symbol-heavy creations, but with their sought-after smattering of religious, philosophical and occult imagery into something simple...

Thee Physical, the fantastic sophomore release that dropped last year from Denver’s cosmic teckno maker Pictureplane (nee Travis Egedy) made our (and many others) list for top longplayers of the year so that 11-tracker you should already know and love. Being that another calendar year is newly upon us and a slate cleaner for nights to get ripped...
Year in Music 2011: Top 50 Albums

Year in Music 2011: Top 50 Albums

The year in review is always hard and with all the great and original releases that were issued this year, 2011 was by far the hardest of calendars to sort out and rate. Fringe genres explored popular confines (Chillwave, Witch House) punk went pop and weird (Fucked Up, Thee Oh Sees), hip-hop went pop and weird (Shabazz,...
'Teenage' will Be Great

‘Teenage’ will Be Great

In the introduction to the Radio Dept.‘s fantastic 2010 tune, “Heaven’s On Fire,” there’s a sample from the ’91 film The Year That Punk Broke wherein Thurston Moore says “People see rock and roll as, as youth culture, and when youth culture becomes monopolized by big business, what are the youth to do? Do you,...

Year In Music 2011: Top Photos

I had a fantastic year behind the camera and considering the year-end list fever, I decided a 2011 visual recap was in order. From nightly Smog City shows at mainstay venues, one-off special performances, festivals like Lollapalooza, FYF or Fun Fun Fun and being cramped in a van on tour, going through my harddrives and whittling this list down...

Tundra Dubs drops ∆AIMON Remix Collection

Oakland collective/label Tundra Dubs have been offering up some heavy vibed-out and dragged industrial/witch house/electronica by way of the Bandcamp plan for a while now, releasing tunes from the likes of bigger (scene) names like M△S▴C△RA and GuMMy†Be▲R!. Taking a gander through their catalog, I came on a few hidden gems. Here’s one: ∆AIMON and...

Watch A Certain Ratio Going ‘Back to The Start’

A few months ago, I told you about the then-upcoming 2-disc retrospective release of FAC. DANCE on Strut, a 24-track collection of rarities, remixes and 12″ mixes from the extremely innovative Manchester label’s past. Well, the collection is out now in both CD and vinyl formats and comes highly recommended for anyone interested in either...

Demonbabies Summons his Nocte Virginis

Smog City-based tee makers Blood is the New Black have long paid the right sort of attention to detail when it came to their designs and whose art they inked and their latest collaboration with Demonbabies is no different. The work of one master of horror, Jesus Rivera, the holiday ’11 line drops, fittingly, on Halloween...
