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.  Just check out the cover art with all of it’s symbology and you’ll notice the references.

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.

ALICE COHEN – Videos

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.
