Sun Araw w/ The Congos at LPR in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Sun Araw, the experimental music project of Cameron Stallones, is set to release his next album, Belomancie, on February 18 via Drag City. You can listen to one of its tracks, "Huff," along with the album artwork and tracklist below.
Sun Araw will be performing solo in NYC TONIGHT (2/3) at Body Actualized Center (143 Troutman St), though you probably won't hear the Belomancie material. He's perforimng his piece, The (3) Vases, which is billed as "a solo live musical performance of new works by Cameron Stallones." Also on the bill is ex-Emeralds guitarist Mark McGuire, who was initially billed as a DJ, but is now playing live. Maybe you just caught Mark playing at Baby's on Friday (1/31)?
Speaking of Emeralds and Sun Araw, Outer Space (John Elliott of Emeralds) and frequent Sun Araw collaborator M. Geddes Gengras are both playing this weekend's Mixology Festival which goes down in Brooklyn at Roueltte (509 Atlantic Ave). Outer Space and M Geddes Gengras play Saturday (2/8) night at 8 PM with Loud Objects (Tristan Perich and Kunal Gupta with Greg Fox of Liturgy/Guardian Alien), following a 1 PM Roulette Kids performance with Laraaji and two workshops (5 PM and 6 PM). On Friday night (2/7) at 8 PM it's Pete Swanson, Ben Vida and C. Lavender. 2-day passes are on sale now, as are tickets for Friday and Saturday.
Tonight's Sun Araw show is one of a couple upcoming dates for him, all of which are listed, along with the song stream, album artwork and tracklist, below...
Fujiya & Miyagi @ Lincoln Hall in Chicago, 1/25/2012 (more by Chase Turner)
Fujiya & Miyagi were in North America a couple times this year, most recently over the summer, playing Glasslands here in NYC and a few festivals around the country. While the band didn't have a new record out this year, front man David Best stayed busy with side project Omega Male who Kraftwerkian synths showed that his Krautrock love isn't limited to Neu! and Can. You can stream the Omega Male album below, there are some really good tracks on it.
Best was kind enough to send us a list of his favorite albums of 2012 and, speaking for myself, there's more than a few on here I am completely unfamiliar with, which I'll have to add to my listening queue. He also lists a few comilations and reissues as well. Check out his list below, along with the Omega Male stream.
