S P E C I A L EVENT - Victor Krummenacher show in Davis Aug. 14

Victor Krummenacher show in Davis Aug. 14     If you’re looking for someone so good that a local record store, a house concert producer, and a community radio station all jumped on board to bring him to town, then look no further than Victor Krummenacher.     Serving up music that draws from influences as far-ranging as “cosmic folk,” the blues and even a smattering of punk, the renowned musician plays an intimate “living room” show at Davis Media Access (DMA) Friday, Aug. 14, co-presented by Armadillo Music, Bill Wagman and KDRT 95.7 FM.

Album of the Week - 7/30/15 at 5:00PM - Alabama Shakes "Sound & Color"

 

"Sound & Color is not an electronic record. But it is strange and mystical and unexpected—more Houses of the Holy than "Holy Cow". It’s got past lives and future people, traces of Curtis Mayfield, Erykah Badu, MC5, the Strokes. There’s a song called "Shoegaze" that could find a second home on the Rolling Stones’ Tattoo You. Bon Iver collaborator Rob Moose provides eerie string arrangements that slowly encroach on songs like ivy climbing up a fence while the band and co-producer Blake Mills tweak tones and rhythms to make guitars and drums and bass and keyboards sound genuinely exciting—fresh, even—in 2015. This is stadium soul with one eye peeking toward another galaxy while hands and feet and throats desperately try to suss out life here on Earth." review by PITCHFORK - see complete review here http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/20420-sound-color/.
