Yes, another Charisma Artist. Is it any suprise?
What do you think the odds are we can book them from the Razzle Dazzle Hootenanny?

Talking about EMP Store – Waltzes, Glitches & Brass: The New Sounds of Solace


Thanks to @SepiaChord for the recommendation. This collection looks fantastic!


EMP Store – Waltzes, Glitches & Brass: The New Sounds of Solace
Vaudeville, Music Hall, Freak Shows, Concert Saloons, Minstrelsy, Dime Museums, and Burlesque; all major forms of entertainment in the late 1800s/ early 1900s. A time where costuming and stagecraft was paramount, and a certain warped fascination with the bizarre and freakish, spliced with titillation and risqué humor, was the order of the day. Here the spirit of this evocative era is fused with dark waltz melodies, glitch electronic sounds, salacious burlesque, and gypsy brass for one of the most unique and lovingly crafted compilations you’re likely to hear this or any other year.

Happy Birthday & the Sizzle of Brass

This morning, Professor of NOW @SxipShirey tweeted a link to this video for Taraf Hijacked (not on either one of the band’s two albums!) today in honor of Luminescent Orchestrii’s seven years together. Yea!



Why "Professor of NOW" you ask?

Well, if you’ve been following Sxip on Twitter like I told you to do, you should have noticed not only tweets about the funding of his new album Sonic New York via fan donations at Kickstarter (yes, that’s another thing I bought), but also an exciting string about the brass band movement.

Inspired to share after an evening at Barbes witnessing brass band Vevertise, Shirey tweeted on Oct. 28:

"The brass band movement in the US is the truly DIY music culture of now. All those old band geeks picking up their horns again."

Followed by, "Brass bands have to many people to make money, they don’t need amplification,they rarely get "signed",they bring the party with their feet."


His hot 8 list includes:

Mucca Pazza,


Hungry March,


Stumble Bum,

Rude Mechanical,

Red Baraat,

Infernal Noise Brigade (RIP),

I don’t know about you but I’ve got a lot of listening to do.
