Imagine a still oasis on a man-made Martian desert, saturated with rust and red clay. Gravity has shifted slightly, though the atmosphere is warm and dense, and everything around you is moving more slowly than you are used to. You’re just waking up to this world, a realm not entirely beyond your comprehension, but all the same, part of a new reality to contend with and romanticize. Chilean rock trio La Hell Gang’s second album Thru Me Again is the soundtrack to this strange new land.

Earning high praise from their debut, 2010′s Just What Is Real, La Hell Gang have traded in the cleaner, ’60s-indebted sonics which populated that record with something more complex, a murkier palate that instills these eight songs with languid mystery. Thru Me Again wades through these danger-infested waters with otherworldly grace, hanging back in the frame while their brand of laced blues wander fills the room with an unassailable vibe of concentrated lust. Providing a counterpart to the sounds of fellow travelers in their homebase of Santiago, such as Watchout! and Föllakzoid, Thru Me Again is the product of a band mastering its own language, and learning that the tender moments of their music can go as deep as their proverbial paint-peelers.

JON MUELLER (Waukesha, WI)

THE DREAMLAND IMPROVISATION COMPANY (Louisville, KY)

Saturday, October 18th

Within a 40 minute solo performance of percussion and voice, using a hand-made Arabic bass drum and looped wordless vocals, JON MUELLER conjures world music and sound while remaining very particularly other worldly. Drawing from minimalism and a variety of musical and non-musical disciplines, including meditation, trance, and physical stamina, Mueller’s solo performances have been described by audiences as resilient, intense, and meditative.

The aim of Mueller’s solo performance is to engage an audience in listening practice by creating a variety of input both recognizable and not, understood and not, which causes a unique experience in each individual.

Jon Mueller has been a drummer and percussionist for over twenty-five years, performing throughout North America, Europe, United Kingdom, and Japan. A founding member of the bands Volcano Choir, Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Pele, he has also worked with musicians Rhys Chatham, Jarboe, James Plotkin, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Marcus Schmickler, Asmus Tietchens, and Z’EV, among others. In recent years, Mueller has directed the multi-disciplinary project Death Blues, encouraging presence and celebration of each moment. More info at www.rhythmplex.com.

THE DREAMLAND IMPROVISATION COMPANY is an ever-changing arrangement of Louisville’s most inventive musicians. The group’s assemblage and musical interactions are completely spontaneous. Their performances are a monthly celebration of throwing out the “instructions” for the night.

TARANA (New York, NY)

with

D’ARKESTRA (Louisville, KY)

TARANA is an exciting and ground-breaking Trombone/synth (Rick Parker) & Drums/electronics (Ravish Momin) DUO that blurs the boundaries between the electronic and the acoustic, while blending a vast array of influences, ranging from Jazz to Juke to Disco to Bollywood. Using digital and analog electronics, they layer live loops, melodies, textures and sounds on top of their tight-knit acoustic instruments to create a symphonic sound that also explores deep-grooving rhythms from across the world. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “few groups stretch the boundaries of jazz further than Ravish Momin’s Trio Tarana… They build beautiful, utterly unpredictable improvisations from elements as disparate as Indian classical music, electronic music and a vast panoply of East Asian rhythms.”

Check out TIRANA performing “Azeem O Shaan Shahenshah”: 

d-arkestra-still-frame

D’ARKESTRA is a nonet that plays an amalgamation of post-rock and indie-jazz. The music is often cinematic, characterized by odd metered grooves, juxtaposed sections, tight horn lines, improvisation and resonant melodies. Leader,songwriter and saxophonist Drew Miller has a growing resume that includes performances and/or recordings with Spoon, Wanda Jackson, Lucky Pineapple, and many others. The group’s latest record is the honest and musically adventurous Little Voices.

STEVE GUNN is a New York-based guitarist and songwriter. With a career spanning nearly fifteen years, Steve has produced volumes of critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings. Way Out Weather, Gunn’s new album released October 7th on Paradise of Bachelors, shows his discursive, mantric guitar style, at once transcendent and methodical — and as influenced by Western guitarists such as Michael Chapman and Sonny Sharrock as by Ghanaian highlife, Gnawa, and Carnatic forms.

Watch the video for STEVE GUNN’s “Way Out Weather” here:

lattimore-zeigler

On their first record as a duo, Slant of Light, MARY LATTIMORE/JEFF ZEIGLER emerge completely synergetic, offering up stunning improvisations that are as advanced melodically as they are texturally. Lattimore has recorded and performed with Kurt Vile, Meg Baird, Jarvis Cocker, Wrekmeister Harmonies and Steve Gunn, to name a few, and her years touring with Thurston Moore inform some of the duo’s noisier moments. Zeigler has played with members of Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel Band, The War on Drugs, and A Sunny Day in Glasgow in his group Arc in Round. Mary Lattimore was recently awarded a Pew grant for her ingenuity on the harp and as an exceptional member of the Philadelphia arts community.
