Hundreds of Orange County residents walk and drive by a Fountain Valley home known for its elaborate holiday light show every year, but some neighbors in the Greenbrook neighborhood tract are saying the house has gone too far.

Homeowner Jan Stewart first enlisted the help of friend Damion Rodriguez to install a Christmas light show using 54,020 LEDs last year in memory of her husband Larry, who loved watching similar shows on YouTube.

This year, the show uses nearly 2,000 feet of Ethernet cable and has added 10,000 more LEDs, multiple lasers, 16 lighted arches nearly 6 feet tall and a fog machine.

SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS REMIXES RAILBIRD

SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS REMIXES
RAILBIRD'S "MIRRORs" // PREMIERES ON CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
 
 
 
 
 

LUCKY EP OUT NOW
 

  “Railbird’s guitar parts sound like a chilled-out Battles
while Pedinotti’s vocals recall Bjork’s charming acrobatics...”
TREESWINGERS
 
"...skittering Deerhoof guitar smash-ups, rap-clatter percussion, and Sarah Pedinotti's chopped vocals made for a triumphantly jittery cut."
- CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

"A statement of autonomy from a group unrestrained by any force other than themselves."
- IMPOSE MAGAZINE

"'MIRRORs' brings together fierce talent, creative thought, and a smattering of unconventional production."
- IN YOUR SPEAKERS

"You'd be hard-pressed to predict the ending of a RAILBIRD song, but
attempting that guess-work makes the experimental Brooklyn band's
music more mysterious and suspenseful."
- MTV HIVE
 
Brooklyn-based experimental psych-rock band RAILBIRD are excited to premiere a new School of Seven Bells remix of their recent single "MIRRORs" today on Consequence of Sound. To RAILBIRD, the remix is "A journey in three movements. Ben [of SVIIB] established his own dreamy world within the song, then dropped it while simultaneously playing with mood and meaning throughout. It's a brilliant six minute voyage based off of a three minute jaunt." Consequence agrees, stating the Ben's methodically slowed down version of the original jittery cut creates a "dreamy pool of contemplative reverberation and airy synth." Check out the premiere of "MIRRORs" (the original cut) on MTV Hive.
 
RAILBIRD released their newest Lucky EP in late November, a tour de force that includes two new previously unreleased songs, as well as "Jump Ship," a track that made waves this summer after a residency at Pete's Candy Store. The video for the song, which features guest vocals from Anti recording artist Sean Rowe and Phantogram's Sarah Barthel, premiered on Brooklyn Vegan in late August. Watch it here, or download "Jump Ship" here. A limited edition run of physical copies of Lucky will be available at shows and online (here) as part of a bundle that includes a t-shirt with Jisoon Park's original design.

RAILBIRD is a cast of stunningly talented multi-instrumentalists fronted by Sarah K. Pedinotti. SKP's vocal delivery has earned her apt comparisons to musical luminaries Bjork and Kate Bush, and the band's unique blend of experimental psych-pop has found a home with fans of Braids, The Dirty Projectors, and Massive Attack.

After self-releasing their debut album No One in March 2011, RAILBIRD was invited to perform at SXSW, CMJ, and the 4th Annual Roots Picnic alongside Ariel Pink, Little Dragon, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and more. RAILBIRD recently performed at POP Montreal and CMJ 2012 and have just wrapped up a small east coast tour. They will head into the studio again in January.

HUNDRED WATERS TO RELEASE NEW TWO SONG 7"



HUNDRED WATERS TO RELEASE NEW TWO SONG 7"

NEW EP FEATURES DRAMATIC REWORKINGS OF ALBUM TRACKS, TOUR DATES WITH FREELANCE WHALES COMING THIS JANUARY

WATCH PIANO VERSION OF "CAVERNS" VIA YOURS TRU.LY:


One of CMJ's true breakouts, Hundred Waters has launched a pre-order for a new two song 7" coming soon on Small Plates/OWSLA. The release consists two radical new arrangements of songs from the band's eponymous debut full length and was recorded in a single day session at Stadium Red Studios in Harlem in May of 2012. "Caverns" was rework for a piano and vocals performance by Nicole Miglis, the recording of which was documented by YoursTru.ly (video link above). The new version of "Visitor" is decidedly more intimate than its album counterpart, boasting a new arrangement for guitar, bass, flute, trumpet, trombone, alto sax, clarinet, drums, and vocals.

The 7" announcement arrives just ahead of a run of tour dates with Freelance Whales, which kicks off in Hoboken, NJ on January 15 before winding its along the East Coast and Midwest for conclusion February 1 in Wilmington, Delaware. Fresh off a Fall tour with Julia Holter, their first European tour, and the veritable landslide of critical acclaim following their performances at CMJ Music Marathon (including rave reviews from New York Times, NPR and Pitchfork), Hundred Waters are continuing to hone their exceptional live performances as the road stretches ahead of them. More tour announcements will be forthcoming.

Caveman Announce New Album and Tour

Caveman Announce New Album And
30 Date North American Spring Tour


 
Photo credit: Philip Di Fiore (hi-res HERE)

Tour Will Run Through SXSW, LA 3/28 and end at Webster Hall on 4/10

A lot has gone down in the year and a half since the men of Caveman released their debut album CoCo Beware, much of it out on the road. They played through a blackout in Dallas as a tornado tore the power lines down, hunted for crop circles in middle America, and saw first-hand the place where aliens landed in New Mexico. They visited the castles of seaside France and got lost in London more than once.

When a group goes through all that together, they're bound to grow as a team. What's more, while all of this was going on, each of the band's members happened to be undergoing significant changes in his own personal life. All of this combined to produce the band's follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album CoCo Beware, slated for release this Spring on Fat Possum Records.

Fat Possum is an independent label home to an illustrious roster including The Black Keys, Band of Horses, Wavves, Yuck, Spiritualized, The Walkmen, Smith Westerns, Lissie, etc.

Caveman is made up of five proud New York natives: lead singer/songwriter Matt Iwanusa, who also adds percussion and drums to the band on record and live on stage, Guitarist JimmyCobraCarbonetti, who designs his hand- made Carbonetti Instruments from scratch, drummer and native Manhattanite Stefan Marolachakis, bassist Jeff Berrall, and Sam Hopkins on synths.
