Chris North’s Near Fall All We Are features lush recordings by the Chris North band and remixes by Many Mansions and Animal Hospital. The songs are dreamy cross-continental meditations on distance and love with Chris’ trademark earnest hopefulness providing the guiding light through the hazy, expansive landscape of sound he’s created. The remixes add an inner focus that lets the listener explore the levels of subconscious depth expressed in the songs. A truly comprehensive listening experience!
Released in edition of 100 on 10″ Vinyl Record with artwork by Chris North.
Rick Berlin’s 15th release, “Always On Insane,” is a rock and roll album in the tradition and spirit of J. Geil’s “Sanctuary,” David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars,” Dr. Dog’s “Easy Beat,” Bruce Springsteen’s “The River,” and The Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street.”
With The Nickel and Dime Band, Boston’s best live karaoke band, Rick recorded “Always On Insane” at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain in Boston, Massachusetts. Instruments included three guitars, bass, keys, kit, sax, trombone. The band members are Jesse Adams-Lukowsky, Tom Appleman, Sam Dudley (Berlin’s nephew), Dino Govoni, Ricky Mclean, Rob Manochio, and Al Radzikowski. They’re a kick ass, upbeat, funny, danceable, deep, crazy and total pro buncha musicians.
The Craters started as an AOL chatroom sleepover on Valentine’s day, maturing comfortably into OCD crisis. Known mostly for the Allston prime’s post-prod. post-90′s mac mic guitar rawk. Since crossing the highway to JP it’s all sunburnt synth collage level-bending beat-breaking ambience. Guaranteed: boy band hooks + headphone candy, short tracks, high density per second content made for airheads by airheads.
