ABOUT THE AFGHAN WHIGS

WEBSITE | FACEBOOK  | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | LISTEN

Evolving from a garage punk band in the vein of the ReplacementsDinosaur Jr., and Mudhoney to a literate, moody, soul-inflected post-punk quartet, the Afghan Whigs were one of the most critically acclaimed alternative bands of the early ’90s. Although the band never broke into the mainstream, it developed a dedicated cult following, primarily because of lead singer/songwriter Greg Dulli‘s tortured, angst-ridden tales of broken relationships and self-loathing. The Afghan Whigs were one of the few alternative bands around in the late ’90s to acknowledge R&B, attempting to create a fusion of soul and post-punk.

The Afghan Whigs were formed when the members — vocalist/rhythm guitarist Greg Dulli, bassist John Curley, lead guitarist Rick McCollum, and drummer Steve Earle — were attending the University of Cincinnati. Dulli, who was raised in Hamilton, Ohio, was studying film at the university, where he met fellow students McCollum and Earle. Unlike the rest of the band, Curley didn’t attend the University of Cincinnati. He arrived in the city to intern as a photographer at The Cincinnati Enquirer, which his father — who published USA Today — arranged for him; for the next few years, Curley continued to shoot pictures for the paper, quitting only when the band’s schedule became too busy for him to work both jobs. Dulli happened to meet Curley when visiting a friend’s apartment building. Eventually, the pair formed the Afghan Whigs in 1986, along with McCollum and Earle.

In 1988, the Afghan Whigs released their debut album, Big Top Halloween, on their independent record label, Ultrasuede. The album received good word-of-mouth in underground music publications and college radio. A copy of the record worked its way to the influential Seattle-based independent record label Sub Pop, and the label arranged for the Whigs to release a one-off single. The single led to a full-blown record contract with Sub Pop. Up in It, their first Sub Pop album, was released in 1990. For the next two years, the Afghan Whigs toured America consistently, occasionally heading over to Europe and England. In 1992, their third album, Congregation, was released to very positive reviews. After its release, the band was courted by a number of major labels. The band released one more record on Sub Pop, an EP of soul and R&B covers called Uptown Avondale, and signed to Elektra Records.

Gentlemen, the band’s major-label debut, was released to considerable critical acclaim in the fall of 1993. “Debonair,” the first single pulled from the album, received major play from MTV, and all of the reviews were positive. Nevertheless, the band wasn’t able to ascend past cult status and all the critical praise even engendered a backlash, most notably in the form of an anti-Whigs fanzine called Fat Greg Dulli. In the summer of 1994, the Whigs released the What Jail Is Like EP to coincide with their American tour. Upon the completion of their international tour in the fall of 1994, the Whigs took an extended break. Steve Earle left the band in the spring of 1995; he was replaced by Paul Buchignani, just before the group entered the studio to record its fifth album. Black Love, the Whigs’ second album for Elektra, was released in the spring of 1996. Again, the album received positive reviews but the band failed to break out of its cult status. 1965, their first effort for new label Columbia, followed two years later. However, with the bandmembers living in different states, it would prove to be their last; in February of 2001, the band called it quits, citing geographical separation.

In 2006, the band reunited for a brief recording session for the release of the best-of compilation Unbreakable: A Retrospective 1990-2006, which featured two newly recorded tracks: “I’m a Soldier” and “Magazine.” With the members going their separate ways once again, the future of the Whigs was once again put on hold until 2011. In a surprise announcement from British festival organizers All Tomorrow’s Parties, it was revealed that the band would headline ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festival at London’s Alexandra Palace in May 2012. Kicking off a world tour that would span 2012 and 2013, the original lineup — minus drummer Steve Earle — returned with gusto.

At the beginning of 2014 the group members announced that they had recorded their first album in some 16 years and had returned to the label that had originally launched them, Sub Pop. Do to the Beast was slated for an April 2014 release, and featured a new lineup of the band. Greg Dulli and John Curley were the only original members to return for Do to the Beast, while their accompanists included guitarist Dave Rosser (the Twilight Singersthe Gutter Twins), multi-instrumentalist Mark McGuire (Emeralds), bassist Jon Skibic (Gigolo Auntsthe Twilight Singers), drummer Cully Symington (Okkervil RiverShearwater), and string player Rick Nelson (St. VincentPolyphonic Spree). A subsequent concert tour took the new Whigs to major venues in the United States and Europe, including a major spot at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival. In October 2014, the band capped off the year with a deluxe reissue of Gentlemen, expanded to a two-disc set with the addition of B-sides, unreleased demos, and live tracks.

The year 2016 found the Afghan Whigs once again revisiting their back catalog with an expanded two-disc edition of Black Love, featuring outtakes and alternate mixes along with a remastered version of the original album. Greg Dulli announced that the Afghan Whigs would play two shows in conjunction with the Black Love reissue, one in New Orleans and the other in Los Angeles. Both shows were benefits for latter-day Whigs guitarist Dave Rosser, who was diagnosed with inoperable colon cancer earlier in the year. Despite Rosser’s health problems, he appeared on 2017’s In Spades, a studio album Dulli described as “spooky,” going on to say, “To me it’s about memory — in particular, how quickly life and memory can blur together.” ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

 

 


ABOUT PINK MOUNTAINTOPS

WEBSITE | FACEBOOK  | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | LISTEN

Since their 2004 self-titled debut, Pink Mountaintops have supplied an outlet for the more arcane fascinations of Black Mountain frontman Stephen McBean. On Peacock Pools—Pink Mountaintops’ first new music in eight years—the British Columbia-born singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist shares 12 songs sparked from his magpie-like curiosity for a wild expanse of cultural artifacts: the sci-fi body horror of David Cronenberg, Disney Read-Along Records from the 1970s, early Pink Floyd and mid-career Gary Numan, John Carpenter movies, Ornette Coleman live videos, a 1991 essay on the cult of bodybuilding by postmodern feminist Camille Paglia. Featuring counterculture icons like Steven McDonald of Redd Kross and Dale Crover of Melvins, Peacock Pools alchemizes those obsessions into a body of work with its own enchanting power, the sonic equivalent of falling down a thousand rabbit holes at once and landing somewhere gloriously strange.

“Mood music. Magic time.” -HuffPo
“Masterful.” -Medium
“Impressionistic.” – Tucson Weekly

Tucson, Arizona-based multi-instrumentalist and composer Katie Haverly has risen to become “one of the city’s most deeply disciplined and widely beloved singer-songwriters,” says local community radio station KXCI (91.3 FM). While “adroitly navigating rock, pop and folk genres,” per Zocalo Magazine, Haverly says her writing process is closely tied to the spiritual realm, and has become one of channeling energy from and living in communion with the beyond. Her live performances with her band are energetic, sensual, explosive and intimate; it is clear Haverly is truly at home on stage.

Her discography spans eight full-length albums and Haverly has spent the last two years writing and recording her next full-length album “Triangulating Line” which will be released in early 2023. The album grapples with the honest difficulty and tantamount importance of loving and accepting ourselves fully as we are, right now in this moment. It explores how this struggle feels in ourselves, and how it feels when we witness it degrading those we love, and the helplessness that can ensue when experiencing either. But, that there can be profound evolution of consciousness, human design, and planetary healing when more of us can live more moments with a deep belief that we are enough.

 


ABOUT FEMALE GAZE

Formerly The Rifle, three-piece Female Gaze emerged in March of 2021 after an extended period of reflection. After eight years of releasing music as The Rifle, including three full length albums and multiple tours, DeGuzman decided to shed both psychological and substantive burdens, and emerge with a knife sharp vision of the future. Female Gaze is the clarified embodiment of Nelene’s approach to art and songwriting.

Female Gaze sounds like a slice of sun soaked paradise, weaving psychedelic dreamscapes inspired by their hometown of Tucson, Arizona. Married couple Nelene DeGuzman and Kevin Conklin have long been artistic collaborators, but the addition of Nicky Cobham-Morgese on drums cemented their re-calibrated sound.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

WEBSITE  | INSTAGRAM | LISTEN

Formed in the California mountains, but originally hailing from Tulsa, OK, Wilderado have been steadily building a passionate fan base and defining who they are since 2015. When they first came together, Maxim Rainer (lead vocals, guitar), Tyler Wimpee (guitar, vocals) and Justin Kila (drums) spent a summer in Latigo Canyon, a secluded part of Malibu, with longtime Sufjan Stevens collaborator James McAlister, immersing themselves in writing and recording. Those songs went on to form early EP releases with tastemaker indie labels IAMSOUND and National Anthem, which garnered more than 130 million streams, but more crucially provided the backbone to years of touring.

Following initial recording sessions at their one-time home and creative space named “The Misty Shrub” (the title of the first EP) in Latigo Canyon (the title of the second EP), the band returned Tulsa to base themselves from their hometown. Since then, they’ve crisscrossed the USA a half dozen times playing with artists as diverse as Kings of Leon, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, Mt. Joy, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and have performed on the main stage at such festivals as Lollapalooza, Bottlerock and Austin City Limits.

Some time off from the road in 2020 meant that the band were able to focus on completing their debut eponymous LP. Working with producers and friends James McAlister (The National, Sufjan Stevens, Taylor Swift), Chad Copelin (Broncho, LANY) and Angelo Petraglia (Kings of Leon) the debut record was released in the fall of 2021 via Bright Antenna Records. Single ‘Head Right’ shows the ambition and intent of a band on the up. With this single and their TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the band achieved their first Top 10 hit at Alternative Radio, reaching the mark after an incredible 26 weeks on the chart.

A 6 week long totally sold out US tour marked the start of 2022 and the return to the road, with UK and Irish dates supporting alt-J and a full year of touring in support of the record on the horizon.
