The infamous actress and pornstar (ex-pornstar?) Sasha Grey is also known for making music, her own music even. Her group aTelecine is signed to Pendu Sound who are now releasing a limited trilogy of gatefold LPs. Pendu writes:
So what does aTelecine sound like? aTelecine take an experimental approach to making music in the form of sound collages which bring to mind artists such as Nurse With Wound and Coil branching out into a world of dark ambient and death-dub. Their music is ever evolving and mutating and it's only with each new album that they release that we are able to glimpse where they are heading.The albums, The Falcon and the Pod, Sounds that Gods Fear, and Are you Attracted to Wounded Animals come as a box set which comes with a bonus 7" that features "a special guest/goth legend" (not sure who the legend is). The trilogy is limited to 300 pressings (so act quick) and can only be purchased directly through Pendu Sound now. Here's how it works:
You will receive the first two records separately. "The Falcon and The Pod" will come out first on August 9, followed by "Sounds That Gods Fear" October 11. The Third LP, "Are you Attracted to Wounded Animals", will come out December 6 and will arrive in the Special Box that will also contain the bonus 7". You will then be able to place all LPs and 7" in this Box completing the subscription. Note: No refunds for subscriptions.Check out the song "4AM" off The Falcon and The Pod below.
Chelsea Wolfe, America Young and Sasha Grey (via Sasha's Twitter)
As previously mentioned, Pendu also releases Chelsea Wolfe's great sophomore LP in August. Stay tuned for a related NYC show announcement, and check out the above picture that Sasha Tweeted yesterday of her and her labelmate and America Young. I'm not sure what the picture is for, but Sasha wrote "Sneak peak from last weekend's shoot." (get your minds out of the gutter!)

Peter Bjorn and John @ Webster Hall in April (more by Tim Griffin)
Oops! Peter Bjorn and John's November 10th Terminal 5 show has been moved down to the smaller Webster Hall one day earlier (November 9th). El Perro Del Mar and Brooklyn (via Japan)'s The Suzan open the show. All T5 tix will be honored, and some are still on sale too.
El Perro Del Mar was supposed to play Joe's Pub on November 9th, so that was also canceled with this change.
"was formed by two Japanese girls, RIE(Guitar) and SAORI(Vocal) in the summer of 2003. They had been sicking and tired of recent Japanese POP idol music. So they decided to produce their own songs and bring the movement and revolution to the music scene of not only Japan but also the world by their sound."Based on watching one of their videos (below), I'm not sure how soon they'll be making a name for themselves in the world, but somehow they got on this T5 bill, and on one of the two Fool's Gold CMJ parties this year.

School of Seven Bells @ South Street Seaport Friday (more by Chris La Putt)
Somehow I didn't go out last week, except for Pilooski and Friendly Fires on Tuesday & Wednesday which I already told you about. Plenty of other dance events went on though...the School of Seven Bells show at the Seaport (above), the DFA Boat Party, Flashing Lights, and Girls & Boys. Now, on to this week:

Jokers of the Scene @ Plan B - April 14, 2009
Last Friday I was too tired to brave Webster Hall for Congorock even though I wanted to, and not being here Saturday or Sunday meant I didn't go out until Tuesday. That night I went to another one of the excellent parties Scion has been throwing monthly at Plan B. I didn't find out about it until the last minute - hopefully some of you saw the details I posted in the comments.
In any case...it wound up being a lot of fun. It wasn't as packed as quickly as usual, but by the time Jokers of the Scene started deejaying, Plan B had filled up nicely. Their set lived up to the two times I saw JoTS previously - great and full of new stuff, hardly any of which I knew, save for "One Day" by the Juan MacLean (who is playing a show at LPR tonight, but more on that and other upcoming events below...).
Toward the end of their set, just minutes after I had finished talking to a friend about Mr. Oizo, the next deejay coincidentally opened his set with "Flat Beat". The shock continued when the other half of the dj duo (who I later discovered were Super Viral Brothers) started to drop verses over the beats. He (Anthony Mills) continued to do so for the rest of the set which consisted of the following tracks (along with a few others) delivered by Olle Cornéer (who also happens to be half of Dada Life):
DJ Reid Speed @ Studio B - December 31, 2008 (CRED)
On New Years Eve I ended my two week long dance-less streak, arriving to a very full and fun Studio B whose NYE bash was in full swing at 1am. Sinden was already on, but I didn't really have a chance to get pay attention because I lost my jacket and was spent the first hour I was there looking for it. I temporarily gave up the search so I could hit the floor and attempt to enjoy the music. The timing was great as I was able to catch Jokers' of the Scene's set right from the beginning which was a wonderful, upbeat, thumping, crunchy, well-balanced mix of mostly new stuff - I recognized maybe 5% of their set which is becoming more and more rare.
After Jokers, Reid Speed played a good set that was a lot of fun incorporating some current electro with old favorites (ie Prodigy), some Nintendo samples, and total oddballs (Diddy/whatever he's calling himself now - Bad Boy For Life) which worked surprisingly well. The ridiculous bill for the evening was far from over, but the dj (who I didn't recognize) after Reid's set started playing a lot of Jungle which I wasn't into, so I called it an early night (for New Years Eve anyway).
