BANDS: LOFTS & Sunday Vipers

I couldn’t wait to share with you this weekends show at The Chapter House on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 10pm. Headlining is local/Brooklyn based duo, LOFTS. Guitarist and singer Bruce Hyde together with Johnny Zachman on synth, create a palette of fuzz drenched guitars, bluesy vocals and perfectly executed synth. Sample their soon-to-be-released self-titled LP here.

A little about  Hyde:

What are you listening to:  Lots of stuff, at the moment I’m playing Roxy Music’s first record.
Favorite piece of gear: 65 Fender Jazzmaster
Digital or Analog:  Analog!! We record all our stuff to tape

And opening the night with Steve Gollnick on guitar and vocals, Billy Cote on guitar and Walt Lorenzut on drums is the trio, Sunday Vipers. 

I asked Gollnick the same questions:

What are you listening to:   Various punk and post-punk, avant-jazz, electronic, along with lots of old-school reggae and soul music
Favorite piece of gear:    at the moment, my cheapo electric 12 string
Digital or Analog:   both… it’s all about how you use it….

THE AUERGLASS

The Auerglass is a two person pump organ created by Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow. The instrument cannot be played alone. Each player has a keyboard with alternating notes of a four octave scale. Each player must pump to supply the wind to the other player’s notes.

Recently the beautiful and talented post-pop singer/songwriter Cameron Mesirow(aka Glasser, the girl on the right) released her debut album RING. “Her simple, minimal melodies and rapturous vocals are perfectly complimented by the album’s maximalist arrangements. The voice becomes a focal instrument, delivers abstract stories and sounds that drench the music in emotion without resorting to narrative clichés.”-http://www.truepanther.com/#/artists/glasser

An artist and brilliant creative, Tauba Auerbach( the girl on the left), helped conceptualize this organ that was made right here in CANANDAIGUA, NEW YORK!! Auerbach has amazing artwork you can view here, including ink, acrylic and other abstract work. She fabricated the artwork for the Glasser’s new album. Check it out by clicking here. Read more about Auerbach in an interview here.

I have played this album at least 20 times, in the past week, and had no idea the depth behind the noise until I saw this video. DAMN!
