The Serth… No Necks in Action

Making atonement here for my shocking disclosure of actually being
a publicist. Music from The No Neck’s release for Revenant. I missed
these guys the one time they played in Memphis, and their music
scatter shots around the oasis of noise making. Their second release
for Serses/ Sound@One made it down to Florida in the summer of 2000
and didn’t really do anything. Letters from The Serth had the feeling
of delta-drumming around 1910 but didn’t bring in the gospel melodies
that make backwaters southern drum circles aspire to more than just
clamoring. Here on their release for unfortunately now deceased John
Fahey’s label, gospel acoustics are nailed down to a spirituality
that’s perhaps more eastern in standing. Wonderful song. Their more
recent Intonomacy really impressed me to with it’s full fledged wonders
into what could loosely defined as pyschedelica:

Michael Johnson -Nonsense Goes Mudslide (or ppl I work for)

Yes I am one of those evil publicists that sends you e-mails about
new releases, and yes like most publicists I don’t actually make
money doing it. Anyway two of three of the things I’ve done work on lately
are actually pretty good. Michael Johnson’s Nonsense Goes Mudslide
is an above average indie-tronica release with a feel similar to
Of Montreal. Worth checking out, the video is pretty cool too:
