Penguin Prison releases single + tours west coast with Girl Talk

After appearing at the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival a few weeks ago, NYC dico wizard Penguin Prison just released a 7" of his single "Golden Train", a track that chugs along fueled by synth, percussion and Penguin Prison's signature voice. The single is already available for download online, but only 300 copies of the 7" will circulate worldwide. These vinyls are so coveted that the guys from Holy Ghost! tweeted, "Save a copy please." If fans cannot grab a copy, they won't have to wait too long for Penguin Prison's next album, which Neon Gold Record said will be released early next year. Here's the link to order the 7". The Penguin will be touring the west coast with his band in January supporting Girl Talk. - Abigail P. Devora


Winter Solstice Celebration at The Ox Dec. 21

I was just standing outside watching the lunar eclipse and thinking that it would’ve been funny to have a flash Lunar Eclipse/Winter Solstice party that only lasted as long as the eclipse. Of course, in reality, it would have been a pretty lame party only lasting about an hour with the other random four insomniacs on my street that happened to be up at three in the morning as well. But having A Stick and a Stone perform in full ensemble during this rare occasion. Now, that would have been a memorable moment experiencing Elliott Harvey’s vision fully realized as the beautifully orchestrated strings and haunting vocals seductively danced and battled while the Earth shaded in the moon. Instead, it was just me freezing my ass off in the cold watching what you might experience on a cloudy evening happening super slowly. Chalk it up as something that I did. Well, it’s still Winter Solstice and A Stick and a Stone will be at The Ox tonight w/The New Heaven and The New Earth, Motorcycle Maus and Scott Churchman so you have somewhere to go to celebrate your pagan ritual with like-minded people this evening. The Ox (you should know by now or just ask a friend), 8pm, $5, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

Amy Seeley releases new CD

Amy Seeley’s songs unfold like a story you can’t put down and end up missing your stop three times for.” – last.fm

We agree. Amy Seeley is one of those unique songwriters who grabs you from the very first note.  With a delicate and unassuming style, her songs balance easily in the worlds of folk and jazz. While the obvious influences of Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, and Sarah McLachlan are present it does not overwhelm her own individual style.

On the heels of her 2008 release, Eight Belles, she’s got a new album, Plum Coulee coming out this month. Recorded in the heart of Montana last winter, it is a remarkable collection of ten songs that continue her tradition of poignant lyrics and beautiful arrangements that will shine through any weather to come this season. - Veronica Medici
