The Phantom Family Halo released their brand-new record, When I Fall Out, this past February. You can pick up the record online via iTunes, Amazon, and the Knitting Factory Records store. The record is also available in your local record store.
About The Phantom Family Halo:
Originally from Allentown, PA, Dominic Cipolla has called Louisville KY, home for more then 20 years. During his early years in Louisville, as well as playing in bands including seminal Louisville collective Sapat, he formed a friendship and musical connection with Michael McMahan (The For Carnation/Slint). After playing in several bands together, including the Louisville favorite Starkiller, Cipolla began writing and recording The Legend Of Black Six, the first release under the name Phantom Family Halo. Other then enlisting McMahan for some guitar wizardry, it would be the first of several records that he was mainly responsible for the writing, instrumentation and recording process. In 2009 the same solo approach was used again for the sprawling double L.P., Monoliths and These Flowers Never Die, and in 2010 with the soundtrack Music From Italian T.V. (Read more.)

Excited to see Volume 1 contributors Threefifty Duo putting together a showcase for this Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge! Music for 1, 2, 3, and 4 guitars centers around the idea of pushing the limits of classical instruments and includes a roster of impressive and dedicated craftsmen. I asked Geremy Schulick to take a moment to talk about the performers and what they bring to the show. Check it out this Thursday at Le Poission Rouge!

The 22 Magazine: How long having you been playing in Brooklyn?
Shayna Dulberger: I have been playing in Brooklyn since 2004. My first couple of gigs were at the Lucky Cat in Williamsburg. That club is not around anymore. I attended Manhattan School of Music’s Preparatory Division from age 16 to 18. I doubled in the Classical and Jazz program. I graduated from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2005 with a degree in music. I studied to be a Jazz Musician.
22: What inspired the Basement recordings?
SD: I decided I needed to work on a conceptual project that would produce a lot of recordings. I was checking out the performance artist Tehching Hsieh. I was interested in his processes and focus on duration and repetition. For this project I was also influenced by the rhythmic elasticity and percussion of Southeast Asia, The Thai Elephant Orchestra for their sense of space and rhythm, and Throbbing Gristle for their experimentation with reverb and delay. I was also thinking a lot about the upright bass and how it doesn’t sound well on ear buds. I wanted to make recordings where the bass sounded like an upright bass but also had enough treble to cut through headphones on the subway. I made short pieces that would sound good on shuffle with a massive music library. After working a lot of odd jobs I thought a lot about ipod shuffles and meditation. I live pretty far south in Brooklyn.

HEALTH W/CHAD VALLEY
“To Your Health”
It all began with work in Mexico City. A friend of mine had bought a ticket to Health only to find out that he’d be unable to go. “You want it?” he asked me, a bit forlorn and deflated. “Sure,” I responded not particularly knowing what I was throwing myself into. And then events happen as they do to everybody, the ones that cripple the will and crush the desire, the ones where you either decide to go to a concert or to keep hiding under your sheets worrying what the hell to do with your life – the proletariat blues.

Described as maintaining a “rightful place at the crossroads of the shoegaze and post-punk revival” Astral’s 2011 release, “Forever After” from Vibraphone Records feels like a fast ride through a field full of flowers. The band currently lives in San Francisco and frontman, Dave Han took a moment to talk to Matt Mowatt about the project.

(To soothe the incredibly strange journey?)
I began my exploration of Andasol via a Twin Peaks marathon and a nasty cold but three weeks later (cough syrup and owl references aside) the album itself seems an attempt to document the story of a mythology, prominent and haunting, which (on some level) should avoid any comparison to Badalamenti save for perhaps, “Heron Lake.”
There have been discussions and debates about the origins of the tunes, a cryptic reference in the liner notes led me on a month long search for a (to be determined) Southwestern mystic, but then, I watched the documentary Jay contributed music to, Marwencol…and things became clear.

The 22:When did you start playing music? Did anyone teach you?
Pablo Malaurie: My father had a spanish guitar and I used to take it and play it while watching the Benny Hill show. I was nine years old.
The 22: El Festival Del Beso was your first album correct? Did you write all these songs or are any of them traditional or taught to you?
PM: I wrote all these songs. El festival del Beso was my first album. My first idea was a minstrel who travel with a message. But the way is to long and the travel take him some ages. So, his speechs is so old that it became modern.

With her sultry voice and a cello to compliment it, it’s no surprise Leah Coloff has played with a huge range of musicians (Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Regina Spektor..just to name a few..
She also holds her own solo and in her collaborative band project (with Sarth Calhoun) Lucibel Crater (3rd video below.)
Leah Coloff – is one of the more unique and dynamic performers of new and alternative forms of music; melding her own styles of vocalization and virtuosic cello playing into a powerful combination of presentation for her own and other composers’ material. Her vocal range is immense, with the ability to sing in a subtle to powerful soprano range and also in guttural strength and clarity of lower tones.

I had always thought that the djembe was an instrument solely relegated to the living room of a stoned and nude Matthew McConaughey. To the sandal clad college kid; or perhaps set in the corner of some ecologically sound mansion as a decorative gesture of cultural awareness. It’s refreshing to have one’s stereotypes shattered. The Mast’s new album Wild Poppies -and their djembe- did just that.
The ethereal vocals of Haale, whose riffs conjure scenes of panoramic deserts, compliment the unfolding complexity of Matt Kilmer’s poly-rhythmic drumming (using not only the djembe, but also a frame drum a bass drum, a floor tom, and cymbals) and invoke a sort of blooming, colorful landscape of layers, organically grown. I think of a toned down Kills, a hyperactive (or perhaps simply active) Mazzy Star, a straightforward Blonde Redhead. In spite of these comparisons, and in a music world saturated with tuned glossy duos, The Mast has carved out a niche all their own, weaving together a sound both simulated and organic.
Song titles like “The Lake” and “Hummingbird,” and lyrics such as “gold dust of the sun has settled, brightens my mind,” or “rolling over the reeds, rolling over mounds of earth, from my head to feet, oh land, the grand masseuse,” reinforce the earthiness of the sound. Despite the fact that the cover art, a fractal image of poppies grown in the band’s backyard, invites the psychedelic, to label their music as simply psychedelic, electronic or rock/pop would be off the mark. Much like their self-proclaimed symbol, The Mast’s strength lies in its ability to merge the best of all three in symbiotic sound.
The Mast will play THURS, JULY 7, 2011 @ Le Poisson Rouge for the release of their album “Wild Poppies.”

I met up with Eugénie Alquezar (the singer/keyboardist) and Peter Kryznowek (the guitarist) of the Parlor Snakes last week at a Parisian bar in the 11th quarter, and they are very much the embodiment of rock and roll music. Peter with his cool rockabilly swagger and Eugénie with her stylish and energetic demeanor, it’s difficult to find this certain purity of rock and roll today without the adulterated elements of Macbooks, alligator sweaters, or the ironic pair of glasses. No slamming the indie circuit, but it’s refreshing to see, well, rock and roll once again. After seeing the Parlor Snakes play live, I was convinced that I was back in the heyday of New York City rock music (where Peter lived and was heavily influenced by). On the other hand, labeling the Parlor Snakes retro-rock, nostalgic for the drugged-out days of Lou Reed, Jim Carroll or the Cramps would be a grave mistake. They bring their own twist of space-out and shoe-gaze as much as any young band today – mixing both high-energy with calm-down beer time. A perfect combination for cellar-dweller rockers thirsty for the times of CBGB’s but also ready for some fresh sounds as well.
The 22 Magazine: First of all I’d like to thank you for this interview with The 22 Magazine.
The Parlor Snakes: Thank you for inviting us.
