Neko Case Announces Upcoming Release

Apologies to all three of the people who read this blog. I’ve been a bit under the weather the past few days, but hopefully the worst is over.

Neko Case has announced a March 3rd release date for her upcoming release, Middle Cyclone. Cyclone, Case’s followup to the superb Fox Confessor, features appearances from fellow folksters M. Ward, Calexico, the Band’s Garth Hudson, and the Sadies. Get a load of the album art over at Stereogum.

Ryan Bingham is playing at the Eccles Center tonight in Park City. While I am fan of Bingham, the $65 ticket price seems a bit absurd.

A.A. Bondy, Breaking News, & Other Goodies.

Last night I was treated to an intimate performance by A.A. Bondy. Bondy’s folk driven melodies are both dark and sparce, while pulling tightly at the heartstrings. His solo debut American Hearts is available now on Fat Possum records. Head over to Daytrotter to download some tracks from their recent session.

A couple posts ago, I mentioned one of my old photo teachers, Jordan Tate. Back then one of Jordan’s projects was “Breaking News,” where he made up fake stories and put them on the front page of The New York Times, only to disperse them around the library and various coffee shops while he sat back and waited for the unsuspecting reader’s reaction. Could it be?

So stoked for the Truckers show tonight at the Bird. I’m anticipating a packed house so if you don’t already have tix, get over to the box office ASAP! Tomorrow I’ll report back with full a review… until then here’s some stuff for you to look at. Check out this phenomenal billboard. Found via Douglas Wilson. Joshua Budich has some pretty impressive prints of various pop icons. Buy some stuff while your there, God knows printers need to make a livin’ too.

Drive-By Truckers, Q-Tip, & Jessica Lea Mayfield

Tomorrow I’ll be headed back to the Hoosier state for some quality time with the friends and family. I conveniently scheduled the trip back to coincide with some shows I desperately did not want to miss, including Drive-By Truckers’ stop with The Hold Stead as part of their Rock ‘N’ Roll Means Well Tour. Pretty psyched for a chance to see these guys again at my old stomping grounds. Head over to the print shop and check out the poster I printed for the show.

Perhaps one of the most innovative rhymesters of the nineties, former Tribe member Q-Tip delivers another phenomenal release with his latest, The Renaissance. It’s been a while, but good to see Q back in full form. Head over to the Q-Tip Myspace page for a sampling of the goods, as well as read Pitchfork’s review of the album here.

The latest artist to pop up on my radar is is the peculiar Jessica Lea Mayfield. Her mid-western drawl, coupled with melancholic guitar playing leaves one with the chills. Mayfield’s first release, With Blasphemy So Heartfelt, was produced by fellow Ohioan, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Coincidentally, Mayfield sang on The Black Keys’ latest, Attack & Release. While she certainly can stand on her own, Mayfield has found herself in good company appearing not only on Attack, but on tour with Avett Brothers. Blasphemy is a must have for 2008.

See for yourself.
