This reminds me of my home. Out in the woods. Up in the mountains.
No excess light. Just the moon, the stars and the sky.

How I wish our planet’s movement was this apparent while staring at the night sky. It could probably make a lot more people realize just how tiny we are compared to this vast unexplored galaxy above our heads.

bill dawers: mumbledust & christ, lord at starland dairy.
A couple of weeks ago in one of my Man About Town columns, I wrote about Bats in the Belfry, an art exhibit and happening at Desotorow Gallery and neighboring Starland Dairy.
I got there for a little while — there was a great energy among the young crowd.
I had my camera and took a few shots of mumbledust and Christ, Lord.
I’ve rhapsodized about mumbledust before — a duo of Rachel Perisho and Ryan McCardle. See my previous post mumbledust: folk noir from Savannah.
For more shots from the Starland Dairy show, go to Savannah Unplugged.

This is so good! I can’t stop listening… Read what Perfect|Midnight|World has to say.
This is something that I can get behind - a driving beat backed by eerie organs and layers of synths over an infectious vocal melody. It sounds like Halloween, no scratch that - it sounds a bit like the first Wolf Parade album, and that’s something to be excited about these days. Wampire are from Portland and they bring a playful intensity to this particular brand of post-punk infected synth pop and it’s all for the better because of that intensity. There’s an urgency in the sound. This year is already off to a killer start, with dozen or so bands and artists already dropping brilliant tasters for things to come down the 2013 pipeline, and I am surely adding Wampire to that last because I’m already dying to hear what else awaits on the forthcoming album, “Curiosity”. Highest recommendation for fans of Wolf Parade, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, and John Maus. (Out May, 2013 via Polyvinyl)
