Language Room Loved in La-La Land

It takes a lot for a band to play to a packed crowd, especially on a Monday night in Los Angeles, but Language Room rose the occasion August 9th at the Viper Room. The set began with Todd Sapio on his knees conjuring swells of guitar with his pedal board while Scott Graham, Matt Graham, and Caleb Kelly lent their talents to make the bricks and mortar of this wall of sound. The band's music attacks with an honesty and magic that isn't as common as it should be.

I don't think I've heard a local crowd cheer as hard as they did for the band. The show was a fitting launch for their self titled album. I wish we could get some of these Austin transplants back.

The Scary Primal Rock of NYMPH

We were just talking about dreams involving "random association of thoughts" (see entry about The Tony Castles here), when we stumbled upon Japan/NYC/Philly based NYMPH, signed to Brooklyn's Social Registry. This band's music sounds as if it was created to be the soundtrack to your own Dario Argento-style nightmare. More primal than tribal, unintelligible but never chaotic, tense to the point of becoming really unnerving, NYMPH is the musical equivalent to a quality horror movie, in which you won't necessarily see blood flowing, but that will scare you to the point of making you repeatedly look over your shoulder on your way home.

P.S. By the way, how bands with members scattered miles away from each other manage to even just rehearse consistently remains a mystery to us.

Chief premieres 'Night & Day' video

Swirls of guitars, keyboards, melancholy, and sun drenched days conjure the feeling of '70s folk rock turned new again. It's the reason why Santa Monica's Chief was just recently signed to London's Domino Records. The good news is that the video for their first single 'Night & Day' just hit the streets, the band news is that you'll have to wait until tomorrow before their debut album, Modern Rituals, is released.
