WIRE: NEW SINGLE BY TYSON MEADE
Iggy Pop told him to be good. The Smashing Pumpkins loved him and claimed to have found his band, the pop-glam-trash Chainsaw Kittens, in a hole, perhaps a reference to their native Oklahoma. Like that of his neighbor and friend, Wayne Coyne, Tyson Meade’s life is the stuff of legends.
Scratching and clawing their way, the Chainsaw Kittens did some damage. They toured with Jane’s Addiction. The Flaming Lips covered one of their songs.

WIRE: NEW VIDEO BY WEED
Feedback fundamentalists; scuzz pop aesthetes; “new age rock band” Weed have arrived with their debut LP, Deserve. Emerging from the most far out/blissed out enclave of Western Canada (Vancouver, B.C.) and its enduringly fertile DIY scene (which has, over the past decade, spawned too many great bands/artists to list here), Weed have been a favorite of ours for quite sometime. Led by guitarist/singer/visual artist Will Anderson and his buddies Kevin Doherty, Hugo Noriega and Bobby Siadat, Weed have been burning minds of all shapes with their brand of sludged out West Coast youth music since their inception. Having been around for the entirety of this decade, Weed have dropped a couple of now-legendary 7” EPs (With Drug / Eighty, and Gun Control, both released on their very own “Cruising USA” imprint) and have embarked on four (!!) North American tours. Recorded and engineered with Seattle wiz Dylan Wall, the nine tracks that comprise Deserve display the band at the peak of their powers — their most melancholy and melodic; blissed but shredded; tuned but atonal. This is liminal rock music for liminal times, gang, and we are honored to be a part of this journey.

WIRE: NEW SINGLE BY DJ TENNIS
Without a doubt, Manfredi Romano (aka DJ Tennis) is a busy man. Co-founder and partner of Life and Death, a DJ with a full schedule and someone who still always has his fingers (and mind) in multiple projects and multiple places at the same time. How he juggles it (or when he sleeps) are questions best not pondered. One thing those who know him well have surely noticed is that he does it all while constantly on the move. Unfazed by the constant whirl of cities that pass him by, he somehow manages to remain focused throughout. No matter where he goes, he somehow always manages to remain local.
