  • Anonymous | Inside The Shadow | Machu Picchu Ltd.

    Originally released in 1976 in an edition of 300 copies, the sole album by Indianapolis’ ANONYMOUS stands today as a high-water mark in rock ‘n’ roll. The album combines the adventure of west coast ballroom groups, the 12-string majesty of Byrds, and breathtaking multi-part harmonies to forge something inimitable and one-of-a-kind, with powerful songs that pushed the limit and raised the bar at the same time. Long time top ten favorite for us, Anonymous' Inside The Shadow is a true classic recommended for everyone into amazing rock records of all varieties. Read more
  • Ramesh | Pre-Revolutionary Iranian Pop Music | Pharaway Sounds

    In 1970s Tehran, the classically-trained Ramesh played the serious, quiet marquess against Googoosh’s langorous pop princess. Both singers made the papers every time they changed their haircuts & appeared on tv frequently. However, while Googoosh now runs a cosmetics company in Los Angeles, they say Ramesh was killed in the political turmoil of the late 70s because she was a lesbian. Nobody knows for sure. What we do know is that she was a funky queen whose rich voice sits like a fat mink coat, twirling it’s melancholy way around long-necked lutes, backed by flurries of frame & goblet drums. And the sleazy, Western brass, strings & synths are here too, slathered across rare singles for your shameless dancing pleasure. Welcome to the unpredictable world of pre-revolutionary Iranian pop music. Read more
  • Casting A Long Shadow...So long, Captain Beefheart!

    I think Goner Records said it best (via their Twitter page): "2010 - the killer takes out another". So true. The year that fell so many greats took yet another on Friday, December 17th--Don Van Vliet, best known as Captain Beefheart. Let's leave the eulogies to those who knew him best (like these HERE and HERE), but for the rest of us we can all join the collective sigh of "THIS SUCKS!". Read more

  • We Even Get Our Own Holidays Around Here: Wheedle's Groove Day, September 4, 2010

    It's hard to believe we're just five days away from Saturday, Sept. 4., which we've been anticipating ever since Wheedle's Groove was booked to play at this year's 40th Annual Bumbershoot Festival. Now we have even more reason to be excited. Not only is Saturday the first day of the festival and the day Wheedle's Groove will be shaking things up before New York's Budos Band on the Fisher Green stage, but it's also a sanctioned day for the veteran Seattle soul funkateers. Earlier this week, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn officially proclaimed September 4, 2010 as Wheedle's Groove Day. Everyone, from the band members and representatives to everyone around Light In The Attic, is tremendously delighted and honored to be regarded so highly on such an historical music weekend in Seattle. You can find us celebrating en masse and dancing like crazy on Saturday at the Fisher Green (State Farm) stage at 3:45pm. Read more
