Saying ‘Hi’

It’s about that time to update everyone on a few happenings here in the BTID camp. I will be relocating back to the Fishtown/Northern Liberties of Philly in late March. Why is this important, you wonder? It means more live music, copious amounts of craft beer, more networking and interaction with local musicians and participation in events/charities/etc. After a while I might be able to forge BTID into a bona fide source for news and discussion on a wide variety of topics as opposed to just ‘some guy’ dropping in to post mixes and one-liner reviews on occasion. I’m totally psyched to get a second crack at the city. I’ve been there before but it was in a more tumultuous (read: broke and hectic) period of my life. The commute to work (King Of Prussia area) forced me out into the suburbs 3 years ago but ever since I’ve felt like I’ve been on the outside looking in, sacrificing quality of life for convenience I suppose. So if you are in the area and want to meet up for beers, band practice or shows – holler.

For example, I released a Capstan Shafts EP over 5 years ago when Dean was still pumping minute-and-a-half jams into a boom-box and I have STILL not had a chance to catch up with him live. Granted, he refused to play out during his formative years. That’s all going to change tonight at the M Room as he’s now touring with a full band, fuller sound and critically lauded album out on Rainbow Quartz – home to local favorites The Asteroid #4. At first it was a shock to hear all the songs from the CS canon done up with production and contributions but the melody and storytelling prowess force their way out of the songs no matter how they’re presented – a big part of why I love Dean’s music so dearly. Maybe I can coax him to fire up a Kickstarter campaign to press the fabulous Revelation Skirts to vinyl. I’ll expect you there if you have no plans. Say ‘hi’.

While on the subject of the extended BTID family – The Gifted Children are at it again, releasing free EP’s and shiz. Fallacy Stilts promises a ‘quieter’, subdued affair with more ‘pretty’ and less sonic assaulting. I’ll take this Buffalo/Rochester collective’s music any way they wanna give it to me. I dare you to stream/download the hazy, daydreamy leadoff track below without wanting to press repeat over and over and over again. You can still grab a copy of the 5CD Building Your Lo-Fi Shelter boxed set as well as the One Clear Minute 7″ series straight from their virtual merch table. If times are tough you shouldn’t leave without downloading the free and most excellent Open Windows and Turncoat Spring EP’s here as well as the (*wink wink*) BTID-released Commonwealth Squelch EP here.

Fellow coal-regionites, Kid Icarus, are following up their smashing 2010 LP (previously pimped here) with a cassette EP on Stress Carrier. But that’s not the only bit of good news – KI have expressed interest in recording an EP to be released right here on the BTID netlabel. I’m not making any promises but I feel this is where my vinyl-pressing career will begin… Check out a few tracks below including the jangly, organ-fueled title track.

Last but not least I heard from a little birdy that The Wiggly Tendrils will be readying a new release very soon with an exciting story behind it. This is assuming you didn’t realize there’s an exciting story behind everything they’ve written to date. I’ll leave you with a recent favorite to chew on until then.
