Post punkers / indie rockers / whatever the fuckers (is that right?) Omi Palone release an LP on April 14th, through Faux Discx and Negative Space. Here's a song. It's all repetitious and Parquet Courts-y. Fine by me.
You all like Slint, obviously (if not, fuck off), so now you can watch them on a big screen. On March 30th NTS Radio presents Breadcrumb Trail, the feature length documentary about Slint and the Louisville music culture they emerged from at the ICA, London. It is followed by a Q&A with director Lance Bangs. Perhaps you can ask him if that is his real name.
Bangs assembled footage of the band writing and arranging Spiderland as well as the first on camera interviews with the band members and their contemporaries. Featuring Slint, Steve Albini, Ian Mackaye, David Grubbs, David Yow, James Murphy and archival material from Will Oldham. Sounds alright doesn't it? It's a tenner. More info at the link below.
Ambient metal spooks Gnaw and Italian weirdos OvO are over on this side of the pond for a handful of tour dates in May. Here is where they are and when:
May 1st - The Victoria, London
May 2nd - Mellomello, Liverpool
May 3rd - The 13th Note, Glasgow
May 4th - Leave Me Here Fest, Newcastle
May 5th - Wagon And Horse, Birmingjham (OvO only)
Those crazy mad fools at Dead Tank have put a bunch of their stuff up as pay-what-thou-will treats on bandcamp. May we suggest select choices by Hexis and The South?
In one of those odd things that happens now and again where Rev decide to put out a record by a good emo band that no-one will buy (see: End of a Year, On the Might of Princes), they are going to do an LP for Fell to Low. This is what Fell to Low's last record sounded like (basically: brooding mid 90s rumblings).
Originally released back in 1998, the tenth album from weirdo punk maestros NoMeansNo is getting the reissue treatment as of 28th April. It'll come as a 2xLP on 180 gram vinyl with a download card.
