  • 7 Days In The L-Shaped Van

    October 8th, 2015 at 10:27 am
    "After a two year break between European tours, Ceremony crossed the pond this summer for a sprint across the continent.
    In a roundabout way Ceremony helped me get a full time job doing something that I love, so naturally when they came over I had to figure out a way to ditch work, shirk all responsibility and get in the van with them.
    Maybe I could be the runner? The merch guy? Drunkenly help manage the tour? De facto tour clown?
    In the end I convinced the powers that be to let me take some photos.
    More photos can be seen here and here.

  • VIDEO : Algiers - "And When You Fall"

    September 28th, 2015 at 10:00 am
    "The video focuses, albeit abstractly, on the idea of observation and surveillance in our society particularly in our cities via the relentless and invasive accumulation of information… The video takes reference from the step and repeat edits seen in Ernie Gehr’s ‘Serene Velocity,' abstract streets scenes as observed by Peter Hutton's ‘New York Portraits’ and the erratic patterns in Len Lye’s film ‘Free Radicals’ while also leaning towards the pace of Cabaret Voltaire’s 80’s video output.”
    With Algiers' current tour continuing at LA's Roxy this evening, here's the 4th video from Algier… Read more

    Just a reminder that Yo La Tengo's massive acoustic tour (accompanied by Dave Schramm) in support of 'Stuff Like That There' kicks off tonight at Troy, NY's Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.  We realize there's many exciting things to do in Troy (for instance, drive to Albany) and with that mind, felt it was super important to further highlight the first show of what should be a magically journey.
