    Recorded Live In Lafayette

    "The most underestimated musician on the planet and also one of the most advanced." - Eric Clapton

    'Recorded Live In Lafayette' is an outstanding display of Landreth's talent and skills. "If you get your best friends together, you might well find the magic," muses Sonny. Featuring two discs - one acoustic set and one electric set - the 16-song opus covers more musical ground than any single album ever could, as the singer and songwriter's work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full-band acoustic and electric bottleneck lightning.

    Landreth's unique spin on guitar playing has made him legendary. Combining slides, fretted notes, and finger picking techniques, Landreth creates a complex, multi-layered sound onstage. Landreth has continued to develop his musical vision, growing increasingly original and more diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz, into increasingly genre-defying musical endeavors.

    Major Handy

    Major Handy was actually born Joseph Majay Handy, May 15, 1947. He thinks, if he understands what his mother's told him, that his parents had a child before him and named that boy Joseph Majay Handy. That son died near birth, and when the couple had their next child, also a boy, they decided to reuse the name. Eventually, after people had trouble recognizing the correct pronunciation, the middle name Majay morphed into Major. He says he did go by his first name initially. A lot of people called me 'Joe,' but that didn't ring no bell. And so, Major Handy it became.


    Handy was born and raised as the oldest of seven children in St. Martinville, Louisiana, the parish seat of St. Martin Parish and right on the Bayou Teche. It's a rural town about 15 miles southeast of Lafayette and is generally considered the heart of the Creole and Cajun melting pot that makes this specific sub-region unique to anywhere else in the world. It's from right here that so much of the culture - the food, music, swamp life - that people associate with Louisiana comes.


    Like with many people from St. Martinville, Handy's heritage is Creole, meaning it's tangled. I'm like a gumbo - everything. Alligator, fish, shrimp, Indian, Negro, white, whatever...I guess that's what that is. But I was raised as a black person, he says. The only time I ever mingled with white people was the music thing. 'Cause I didn't go to school with white people. I quit school in the ninth grade (just before school desegregation in Louisiana).


    Handy's earliest musical inspiration came from his father, who had an old accordion that he toyed with as nothing more than a pastime, and some cousins who were fooling around with music. I saw that, and I wanted to take it and be better, Handy says. The first thing I picked up was a guitar. And I took it from there. His first professional gig came on bass in a cousin's band. From there it was back to guitar and eventually accordion as a bandleader. In between, he played in the bands of Rockin' Dopsie for many years as well as in the very first incarnation of Buckwheat Zydeco just after Buckwheat had left Clifton Chenier.


    While he'd recorded previously as a bandleader, Handy's 2008 APO Records release Zydeco Feeling marked his first widely distributed release in 25 years.

    Complete Control Sessions (On Sale)

    Taking their name from the phenomenon of analog television frequency disturbances, Lafayette, Indianas TV Ghost conjures an especially sludgy and punishing brand of art-punk. They began making a name for themselves in 2007, when their first 7, Atomic Rain, was released by Die Stasi Records. A 12 EP on Die Stasi, a single on Columbus Discount Records and their debut album, Cold Fish, followed in 2009.


    TV Ghosts sophomore full-length, Mass Dream was recorded by Greg Ashley (Gris Gris) and it is by far their clearest and most coherent release to date. While sacrificing none of the bands scuzz-punk dementia, Mass Dream is far less dense and impenetrable than its predecessor; Ghost frontman Tim Gicks lyrics are clearer and his complex song structure a bit easier to get a handle on. That said, this is still blood-boiling, spastic and down right evil music by anyones standards.

    Performs Trouble No More Live At Town Hall

    Highlights 10 Performances From The Concert


    Include A New Essay By Bob Merlis


    John Mellencamp's Trouble No More was released in June 2003, received with universal critical acclaim and a No. 1 debut on Billboard's Blues chart.
    Featuring Mellencamp and his band's spirited take on American folk and blues classics, including Robert Johnson's "Stones In My Passway," Son
    House's "Death Letter," Woody Guthrie's "Johnny Hart," Willie Dixon's "Down In The Bottom," Lucinda Williams' "Lafayette," and several others, the album
    was recorded and mixed in just 17 days, capturing the sessions' bounding energy. A month after the release, Mellencamp performed this acclaimed
    studio album, Trouble No More, plus additional songs, including stripped-down versions of Mellencamp's "Small Town," "Paper In Fire" and Pink Houses,"
    as well as Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" for a sold-out audience at New York's Town Hall.

    In Light

    Includes MP3 Download Card


    In Light is the debut album from the Lafayette, Louisiana-based five-piece Givers. Engineer Ben Allen (Cee-Lo, Animal Collective, M.I.A., Matt & Kim) helped to provide sounds here that expand upon the bands greatest assets, their innate knack for the catchiest of melodies, and the ever-evolving rhythms and sense of adventure that gave them their experimental edge.


    Opener and first single Up Up Up is nothing short of anthemic, a rousing calling card for the bands elated sound. Ripe is a kaleidoscope of sultry Afro-pop, while Meantime showcases the bands instrumental and thematic investment in fluidity, capping off with a no-holds-barred group sing-along. Words fuses fist-pumping, heavy percussion with staccato vocal chants, and In My Eyes is lifted into the night sky by fluttering harmonies, steel drum chimes, swirling guitar solos and cricket hums. Atlantic laces Lamsons textured drawl with Caribbean accents, ukulele plucks and keyboard sparkles.


    Refreshingly alive with melody, endless energy, and downright danceability, In Light is the perfect introduction to a band whose name you will be hearing throughout 2011 and beyond.

    Disconnect

    TV Ghost's third full-length for In The Red, Disconnect is a journey to the center of dreams. The Lafayette, Indiana, band displays a newfound maturity, incorporating churning rhythms and psychedelic drone into a lush torrent of gaseous keys, sprawling guitars and eerie melody. Think Porcupine-era Echo and the Bunnymen and Tago Mago-era Can run through a Cure Pornography blender.


    "TV Ghost's 2009 debut LP, Cold Fish, is a maelstrom-10 hectic songs ripped out in 25 minutes. Stuffed to the seams with wiry guitars, trembling keyboards, crashing beats, and Tim Gick's mad-man warble, it has the creepy tension of a post-punk haunted house where the Cramps, the Scientists, or Pere Ubu might leap out from the shadows at any moment. The band deftly balances precision and abandon-every moment sounds lunatic and unhinged, yet no track collapses into complete anarchy.


    "That abandon has subsided a bit on Mass Dream, which doubles the length of its predecessor despite having only one more track. That's by design-Gick says that his intent was to "space things out more, let the songs breathe." And while I miss Cold Fish's farther-flung moments, the band has countered that loss with songs that are deeper and more open. Now, along with all the post-punk echoes rattling around, unexpected reference points pop up. At times I hear the enervated drama of Echo & the Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch, or the stridency of Ian Svenonius during his Nation of Ulysses days. And TV Ghost prove as adept at stark dread as they are at fevered bedlam...."

    Forever

    For their debut full-length Forever, this San Francisco duo pairs classic pop structures with modern electronic production to create instantly memorable melodies that show no sign of their virtual patchwork beginnings.


    Whether living four states away or four blocks away, Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme have always used the Internet -- at first out of necessity, later out of preference -- to collaborate on their songwriting.


    Although the cousins grew up together in Lafayette, Louisiana, Donohue eventually moved to San Francisco, while Prudhomme stayed near New Orleans.


    The newfound distance between them forced the pair to start sending song ideas back and forth via e-mail, a virtual exchange that quickly spawned Painted Palms' first release, Canopy, which was discovered by of Montreal's Kevin Barnes


    Tours with of Montreal, Braids and STRFKR soon followed before Prudhomme moved out west to San Francisco, where Donohue still lived.


    Yet, despite being in the same place for the first time in years, the duo continued writing songs apart from one another -- completing individual ideas in isolation and piecing them together through the computer.


    And so, the songs that would eventually form their debut full-length Forever, came together as if the musicians were still separated by 2000 miles: Donohue sending a short, looping beat and Prudhomme replying with a vocal melody before continuing to bounce the track back and forth between them until it was complete, this time focusing on creating songs with classic pop structures.


    As if crafted by tailors so skilled you can never find the seams, the songs on Forever provide no hint of their patchwork beginnings. Instead, the album is permeated with blissfully buoyant tracks like Here It Comes and Forever, which glide smoothly on a foundation of instantly memorable melodies.


    Elsewhere, touches of Painted Palms' most prominent influences -- '60s psych pop paired with modern electronic production -- are clearly evident, as on the dark and driving hooks that propel lead single Spinning Signs.


    Don't be fooled, though. Underneath the sunny sonic exterior, the lyrics on Forever exist in a different place, with much of the focus centered on how it feels to be caught between the external world and one's own thoughts.


    Thinking about myself too much I can see that / I don't know what to be, sings Prudhomme on Forever's title cut.


    And in that moment a hint of irony is apparent, for as much as the members of Painted Palms want to get out of their own heads, they're awfully good at writing songs that will immediately get stuck in yours.
