John V. Variety Hour Volume 1, out now! and FREE

I will let John explain it best.. very talented and cool friend of mine.. I mastered his album.. enjoy it, its free!




"loved ones, friends, current and former associates both beloved and/or missed,

i offer to you today under the guise of my music/performance art/internet/slightly-more-pretentious-than-reality persona "The John V. Variety Hour" my debut LP, HR 1


it is the first collection of John V. Variety songs that have been professionally mastered at studio quality (by the effervescvently talented Zak Mering of GunkTVRecords)

in the words of my own silly (and somehow truncated) liner notes, it is "the best of 2015's Debutante trilogy and more... re-recorded, remixed, rearranged... a solo and splendiferous aural odyssey of psychedelic disco and baroque avant-pop; as a polyphonic / polyrhythmic musical narrative related in the ringing tones of introspection, abstraction, allegory, and obscurantism, so as to cast sharp relief on our young belle's Fall and Rise in a world... a song of the self that begins, against the old testament, at the end, and lingers upon our hero's repeated entanglements in time and space on the course that follows" 

it was recorded all throughout 2015 and into 2016, then revised and remixed throughout this year

featuring artwork by Sera Seine, as well as guest vocals
also features remixed drumming from masterful percussionist and composer Keenan LeBlanc, as well as improvised piano by the enigmatic gifted performer Elias Dagher

it's free to listen to or download and i hope you enjoy it if you do either of those 



best wishes, warm regards, and also loud songs with multiple melodic voices,

john v. variety"

Weyes Blood - Front Row Seat To Earth LP & Video Debut!



The new single is called "Seven Words" and is from Natalie Mering's new album... "Front Row Seat To Earth"   The link to preorder it is HERE.

Weyes Blood's new album is available for pre order on CD and on vinyl as well that includes a poster and other goodies!

From Weyes Blood bandcamp page:

The new Weyes Blood record, Front Row Seat To Earth, is the folk music of the near future. Natalie Mering, the being behind Weyes Blood, embeds her sublime song in a harmonic gauze of arpeggiated piano, acoustic guitar, druggy horns, and outer space electronics. Propulsive, spare drums carry us across the album’s course.

There is a faded California beauty to Front Row. A gentle honesty that recalls the finest folk music made on the West Coast of the ‘70s. The hue hangs in the sweet-spooky harmonies, the pulsing sway of the vibrato, and the ecstatic chord resolves. It is the joyful release of energy as the song delicately unfolds from intro to extrospection.

But this beauty is scratched with shadow; with dark foreboding, alienation, and acceptance of change. Love and loss balance together in suspended alchemy, as the earthiness of the singer-songwriter tradition wears digital sounds like feathers in its hair. Mering, together with co-producer Chris Cohen and some special guests, contrasts live band intimacy with the post-modern electric sheen of A.M. radio atmospherics. The experimental flourishes sparkle amid the succinct, thoughtful arrangements.

The closeness of this record - how personal, alone, and frank it feels - conceals its aspirations to the outside, to the "Earth" of its title. Weyes Blood harbors devastating weight while also universalizing the strange ways of identity and relationships. These are not typical love songs or protest songs -- they are painful, poignant riddles that celebrate the ambiguity of love and affirm the conflict of harmonious life within a disharmonic world.
