(MP3 DOWNLOAD) - (PODCAST) My Cube, the new album by Cube (a.k.a. Oakland resident Adam Keith), begins with “First,” somehow a lethal subconscious variation on “Undercover of the Night” that’s built on shaky ever-shifting soil, on tape jams and spool tangles. Show More Summary
Hey, speaking of that recently announced six-part musical exploration of dementia, you may have forgotten that James Leyland Kirby actually started off his musical career under the moniker V/Vm, which has and ultimately continues toShow More Summary
So stoked Gobby is continuing to expand that non-visual, completely audible, and all-around visceral experience. Simply, “Early Text” is an excellent example of how pulls together Gobby’s honed-in percussion expertise, frog-prince vocal experimentation, cracked modern composition, and overall avant-garde theatrical motif.
