High Priestess Of Rock, Eddy Lee Ryder, Bewitches With New Single

In a respectably seedy corner of New York City resides one of the great characters of music, Eddy Lee Ryder, a singer-songwriter whose true-life stories are infinitely more eye-popping than any number of fabricated nonsense you get from some of the pretenders out there. Channelling not only artists such as Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush and Elvis Costello but also the wild 70’s fug of Times Square and 42nd Street bars, Eddy is the conduit through which the charismatic phantoms of yore travel on the way to the 7-11. Following the first track from her forthcoming EP, Small Apartment,’There In Dreams’ is her new single, a beautiful arrangement of delicate piano, atmospheric symbol rolls and Eddy’s bewitching vocals.

New release: Phonettes – Algorithm Love (single)

Phonettes is the project around the songs of Amsterdam based singer-songwriter and film composer Daan Hofman. About two years ago he started writing material from scratch with only an analog synthesizer, two guitars and a computer. He sings, plays all instruments, and wrote and produced all the tracks of the upcoming EP Algorithm Love.


Of the “My Love Is The Dagger” video, Sewell commented, “We filmed it at the legendary Bovine Sex Club in Toronto. I wanted something that looked, and felt like an intimate rockabilly video. Something slow moving and very simple that wouldn’t take anything away from the actual song itself. ‘My Love Is The Dagger’ is a really heavy song about how difficult personal relationships can be for artists and the people they love, and for those who love them in return. We’ll save the big budget car chases, explosions, and bankrupt-the-band video eye candy for whatever video we make next.”

He is the reason I became interested in tattoos at a young age and was also one of the main reasons I decided to start learning how to play instruments. Working with him was some of the most fun I’ve had making music. it was just an organic process, it reminded me of hanging at a friend’s house when I was younger and just creating to create.”

Matt Valentine, of Tower Recordings, MV & EE, Wet Tuna, and more, is releasing his new solo album

In this life there are two kinds of people, those riding the vapor trail left behind by Matt Valentine (aka MV) and those left woefully unprepared to deal with navigating his slide out of the ether. Over the years Valentine has served as a singular spiritual Sherpa, changing form when necessary. From the psych-scratched inklings of Tower Recordings to the cosmic folk he divined while traversing the Golden Road, solo jaunts, a hundred and counting CD-rs with his partner Erika, and on into the current beacon of blues transmissions emanating from the nocturne pulpit of Wet Tuna, any aesthetic differences never overpower the magnetic pull of MV radiating like a beacon. There’s a lot to wade through if you’re just breaking the veil, but that’s all the more reason to nod into the Preserves for a poke around.
