LIGHT ASYLUM – Interview

10 Jun

Here’s a clip from an interview with Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum for Imagine Fashion.

You can view the full video here.

Light Asylum is blowing up.  It’s been a long time coming for Shannon.  I remember the first time I heard her sing.  She was with Celena Glenn & The Victory Riot back around late 2002.  Lacy Rae Lancaster Perez (Living Days) was on drums and they were playing a neighborhood dive bar in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Hooper Street at Broadway.  It was the same bar that a year or so prior had crime scene tape around it as someone was mortally wounded just outside of its doors.  On the night of the show, I remember the crowd as small and friendly; both solemn and warm.  In some ways this scene informs Light Asylum’s music…dark and dangerous, brooding and hopeful.   When Shannon sings, you can’t help but be mesmerized and pulled into her world–just listen to the song “Dark Allies” and you’ll understand.

Light Asylum recently signed to Mexican Summer and will release their 12″ EP called “In Tension” in mid-June.  Check out the song “Skull Fuct” as Alex Lipsen did some tracking on this at Headgear.

tUnE-yArDs Live on Studio 360

6 Jun

Hi!!!!  I’m at Headgear taking a break and watching some videos.  tUnE-yArDs recently performed some songs on Studio 360.  Too bad the audience is a little dead.  I don’t think I’d be able to sit still.  “Bizness” might just be the best song of the year for me!  Check the additional performance on the show here.

TVOTR – Nine Types of Light Video

12 Apr

This is TV on the Radio’s epic, hour long video collage of their record “Nine Types of Light”.  It’s full of arty existentialism, amazing visuals and hilarity (“I’m cool Snoopy.”).  I bet you like that kind of thing, don’t you?
