Solon Bixler of Great Northern says of the band’s new album Remind Me Where the Light Is releasing on April 28th that they “took a lot more risks by entering uncomfortable territory that wasn’t touched on the last record… we dug deeper into the unpleasant, which helped us to find the beauty.”

James Bassett said of Abe Vigoda’s 2008 album Skeleton that it was “cleverly and neatly interwoven to further the sense of disorientation, Skeleton is a concentrated blast of strangely accessible noise that is both bracing and energising.” Here’s the new video from their 2009 effort Reviver.

C.L. Chafin says in tomorrow’s review of Black Dice’s Repo that the album “melds overmodulated drumbeats, guitars, otherworldly chattering, distorted saxophone, and a million other bleeps and blurps into echoy sonic clouds. It’s by turns engrossing, boring, and terrifying.” The Brooklyn-based group has just released a video for “Glazin” and has announced their upcoming tour schedule (after the jump).

Dale Watson is an unrepentant hard country traditionalist from Austin who comes firmly from the George Jones and Merle Haggard school of musical hard knocks. His regular shows at the Continental Club in Austin are always packed affairs (tour dates after the jump) and his live albums are generally some of his best efforts. In true country tradition, Watson also sings trucking songs and has a second volume of road rambling tunes releasing on Hyena Records next week (April 21st.)
