Just posted 2 unusual live recordings of Mount Eerie with a professional string quartet (and keyboard and vibraphone). Click the fake picture of an embedded player to go see/hear the songs in the bandcamp zone.
Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie, The Microphones) has posted a new live recording to his Bandcamp page. The two fan-recorded songs are the “only known documentation” of this unique performance featuring a live string quartet, vibraphone and keyboard.
The result is of course stunning and can be heard by clicking the image at the top of the post.
John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees live at the The Chapel, SF.
The band’s 3 night residency has been recorded straight to tape and is expected to be compiled and released as part of Castle Face’s Live in San Francisco series later next year.

Do you like music? Does it give you “feelings?” Do you want to write about them? Woodworks is looking for some new volunteer blogger babes (journalists) who have something to say about music. Positions include photography gigs and show reviews + news blogging + album reviews. If you think you’re a suitable match for us please contact me at Saida@woodworks.ws.
Fuzz have recently unleashed their contribution to Castle Face’s new (and might we add killer) Live In San Francisco series and although we weren’t present for that recording, we did happen to catch the band at the last stop of their tour at the Satellite in LA.
Ty, Charlie & new bassist Chad (of Chad and the Meatbodies) conjured up something special that night and we’re glad to have caught a few of our favourite moments straight to film. We’ll be blasting the band’s S/T for a long time coming however a new 7” and a supposed 2014 tour tells us that this might not be the last we hear of Fuzz.

Recently we received word from Liz Harris (of Grouper) informing us that she’d been ‘playing pop music with some friends’ under the name of Helen and the resulting debut 7” couldn’t be sweeter.
The release was handled by Harris’s own YELLOWELECTRIC label as well as Exiled Records and is available through a very small chain of distributors (but not for much longer).
You can listen to the A-side ‘Felt This Way’ below:
Trouble In Mind have been behind some excellent releases and it’s no surprise that this compilation, put together for the 2013 Liverpool Psych Fest, absolutely slays.
The compilation features 7 tracks by the likes of Fuzz, Jacco Gardner, The Resonars and more on a limited 12” made purely for the festival (but fear not, bands will be carrying a few copies on tour) and thanks to NME, you can stream the entire set ahead of its September 28 release:
