Big Whoop. Review by Julius C. Lacking.
Despite a discography that would make you expect a persona along the lines of a reincarnated Captain Beefheart, in conversation, Arrington de Dionyso is polite and eager to communicate his artistic mission in as understated a manner as possible. Ink 19 caught up with the artist on a rare day off, somewhere in Texas, to speak about his new album Malaikat Dan Singa, performance, and making music to conjure spirits.
Matthew Moyer finds himself in the same concert hall as Leonard Cohen, holy clown, dour prophet, borscht belt crooner, and true legend — in Tampa, Florida, no less.
After thirty years, music critic Gary Giddins is still listening, still watching, and still… writing a multi-volume biography of your grandma’s favorite crooner, Bing Crosby? Ink 19 sat down with Giddins to talk about the shape of jazz to come.
Musical duos have become their own genre, much in the same way the Beatles helped define the bass, drums, guitars rock quartet. Matthew Moyer looks inside the husband/wife duo of Lullatone to explore the seriousness of toy instruments and just how much babies love Busta Rhymes.
If you didn’t catch Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s Jacksonville performance, as our own Matthew Moyer did, then you missed out on one seriously artistic explosion of wonder.
Phosphorescent bathed Jacksonville in a pool of saturated country rock, fairly drenching Matthew Moyer in the glory.
When Gothic godfather (oh stop it) Peter Murphy swept into Jacksonville on the 4th of July with a bag full of hits and Bauhaus classics, Matthew Moyer dropped his bottle rockets and went to check out the REAL fiireworks.
Matthew Moyer gets all dreeeeeeeamy with Portland’s upstart dreampop army, pacific UV. They’ve just released an album that rivals Sigur Ros for lushness – what’s next?
Matthew Moyer gets quiet with boy/girl duo Nire, cracking the code from Portland.
Suicide devotee Matthew Moyer sits down with Alan Vega to talk about his new solo album Station, the mysteries of the creative process, whether Bruce Springsteen is indeed the Boss, becoming an entertainer and… a family man. This be the verse.
