Hell yeah these guys have what it takes!
Joshua....You did the boys of Lethal Dosage Proud with your article. :) Tucson needs to hear more about this up coming enthusiastic Metal Band...
You can stream/buy the album here:
Timmothy: Nine Questions is on a break, but one did appear on the Range today @ http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archi…
You do realize this is still from Jan 9th ?
Loved this article. This band Broken Bells sorta reminds me of them. If you wanna check them out, their album is not on iTunes. http://smarturl.it/AfterTheDiscoStream
This cd sucks.This one out of one is terrible.
From Jan 9th. !!!
Got anything new ?
Last name Camacho and is sporting red laces on those stompers??????he also is was a bouncer...he looks maybe 145 pounds lol....don't take much to intimidate hipsters and emo dorks!
Machina Muerte is the name of a label in California! There are a lot of guys on it who do world wide battles to put out records....been around quite sometime. So these guys just did the norm and copy a name lol. That's what sucks about living in Tucson so many people copy what people do in other states instead of doing it our own original way.
What a really neat place the new Old Town Artisans has become. The dressed up bar and music, the new art stores…what a blast. You can shop or just kick back and relax. Nice alternative to the hyper-active downtown scene.
Half of the 14 releases? You're counting the compilations, where each band contributes a song, as a release that has a female contributor? That's a stretch.
I know you don't judge music by the gender of the artist. What I'm saying is that women artists are marketed less than male artists due to the systemic sexism in the industry. Even on the local level. So, because of that, yes, you have to make a special effort to look for bands with women rather than just listening to what comes your way.
Hi Keith, I'm the Jersey tomata from the Flyers game last week. I've been on the look out for a Philly Italian hoagie. Perhaps your shop can do that for me. Plus, my daughter lives down there. See ya soon, Karen Lavin-Sutton
I don't judge music based on the gender of the artist. In fact, the thought never crossed my mind until you brought it up. But since we're in agreement that at least half of the 14 releases I mentioned have female contributors, I would say that the idea of "making a special effort" is sexist in itself, and perhaps one of us has internalized the very real issue of societal sexism more than the other.
I figured I may have missed a few in the compilations. And I'm not saying you did this intentionally. But because of a sort of general societal sexism, sometimes you have to make a special effort to make sure and listen to bands that contain at least one woman.
Rachel, I completely agree with your point - but don't forget that LAMBMUNKZink, Ex-Cowboy, Kid Puto, Some of Them Are Old, and both Algae & Tentacles and Katterwaul from the Dune Drift compilation all feature indispensable contributions from female artists (or are fronted by women), not to mention Simone Stopford of Burning Palms.
Geez, guys. Joshua Levine and Eric Swedlund don't show much love for female musicians. Josh has Monster Pussy (Marie DeGain) and Burning Palms (Julia DeConcini); Eric has Lovely Bad Things and Superchunk. That's four female musicians out of...how many? A lot.
In contrast, thanks, Sean Bottai, for recognizing female talent; indeed women are more than half the world's population.
I just moved from Denver, where no one knows of this band, so I can vouch for their proclaimed modesty. Thanks for all the great work you do, Weekly staff.
As music editor of this here publication, it’s probably my duty to step forward and moderate or something.
Dudes from Blind Man Deaf Boy: Have you never been reviewed before? Or have all the writers in Denver just kissed your asses? It is not uncommon for a reviewer, someone who is extremely well versed in music, to take exception to a band’s music. It’s what we call music criticism, and it is what you will regularly be subjected to, should you choose to play music.
No one had it out for you in Tucson. You were reviewed fairly by a knowledgeable guy, but ultimately it’s just one guy’s opinion.
So, Blind Man Deaf Boy, why not come back to Tucson, play a show, and let the people decide. We’re a fair bunch. This is not a threat. It’s a guarantee that if you come back, we’ll make sure some people are there to see you and make up our own minds. Let’s make friends, assholes.
