Drunken Sufis have released a digital full length via bandcamp called “Death Cult Summer Camp”. This band is a self-described “conspiracy, prog-punk” band with song title’s like “Bohemian Grove” to prove it.

This record was tracked at Headgear last summer over the July 4th weekend. Freemasons, Illuminati, Knights Templar and Bilderbergers are welcome to listen and download! This shit is bombastic and craaazy!
Teachers finally play their debut show at Glasslands on Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 8:30pm. Get your tickets here. Teachers is the project of Ben Bronfman, who’s an all-around renaissance man. Ben runs a sustainable record label called Green Owl and dabbles in renewable energy with Global Thermostat, but you might know him from his former band, The Exit or his recent production contributions on Kanye West’s “Monster” track.
You know that band Weezer? Well, you can go on a cruise and watch them perform along with a bunch of other bands. The reason I’m writing this blog is because our friends in Keepaway are playing on the cruise. A while back, Keepaway tracked at Headgear with Kyle Boyd for their Baby Style EP and also performed some songs live, at Headgear for freqControl.com.
The talented Alice Cohen can’t stop making these awesome collage-y animated videos. The above video is for Majical Cloudz (Arbutus Records), for their song “Dream World”. Alice has also made videos for Coasting, Ducktails, K-Holes, and Big Gold Belt.
You may or may not know that Alice is a long-time musician who’s been in such bands as The Vels, Die Monster Die, and Castles. She’s currently finishing up the tracking portion of her upcoming full-length with some help from Jackie Lin Werner. While you’re waiting for her next release, check out the video of her song “Memories of Glaciers” from her Walking Up Walls release from Olde English Spelling Bee.
While you’re at it, check out this write-up on the Chocolate Bobka blog about her song and video “Black Pepper”. Engineer Chris Moore (TV on the Radio, Au Revoir Simone) mixed this record at Headgear a few years back.
