Florida=Death are back with the best god damned album of the year. You heard me. This is front to back my favorite collection of songs to be put out in CT in 2012. I defy any and all of you musicians to make me eat my words. There are still 2 months left.

Lauren Lennox doesn't like the The Lost Riots. This was the band infamous for their Summer 2012 show at Pitkin Plaza's Ideat Village music festival, where the New Haven police department showed up with pepper spray. Prior to the concert, Lauren Lennox, the building manager for neighboring apartment building 360 State, had sent out an email to tenants urging them to file noise complaints against the performance. Complaints were indeed filed and cops were dispatched. Festival organizer Bill Saunders was subsequently taken away in handcuffs for failing to produce a permit for the show as well as inciting a riot (ironic!). There were about fifty people in attendance, who mostly responded by hurling some 'fuck you's' at the cops and recording Saunder's arrest, along with said 'fuck you's'. Since then, 360 State and festival organizers have reached some kind of agreement after a lengthy debate over how New Haven's culture ties in with the proper sound ordinances. All in all, it was a good story for The Lost Riots, who got their namesake before their show was cut short by their own title.

Welp, that pretty much covers it. Let me jab at you some more though. Third Man Records is a label run by Jack White of the White Stripes (and many other projects). There is also a flagship store in Nashville, TN. As an extension of this store and within the mission of reaching as many young kids who haven't ever been to a record store Mr. White had an old food truck converted into a rolling record store. The truck carries a variety of Third Man Records releases (many of which are exclusive to the Third Man store). Here's the introductory video for the truck:
You can follow the truck on twitter here as well. They make mention of exclusives from time to time and of course say where they at the time. There is also a blog post on the Redscroll Blog here.

When Witch Mountain went on hiatus in 2002, after a five year span of activity, to tend other projects and some real life concerns, the future looked a little uncertain for these Portland, Orgeon-based doomlords. But things changed a bit in 2009, when they had their friend Uta Plotkin sing a song of their first record, "...Come The Mountain", at a show opening for Pentagram and Danava in their hometown. She was a hit and the band had a new permanent vocalist.
Here is a video by Neon Leather Drip so you know what you're in store for!

I love this.
This is what happens when a wider populous gets their hands on recording gear, the spectrum of music widens dramatically. What we are witnessing is growth exponential to the boom of outsider music in the 70's and 80's with the availability of four track cassette recorders.
Jake Ryder makes tunes born of the ideas of the past but forged firmly in the modern, creating an environment of sound full of buzz and saturated treble that naturally thrills.
