with Soccer Mommy the title.new album called Wig Out at Jagbags. Jagbag is a great word. A smeared aspersion, not profanity, but derived from one..... watered down for the airwaves, or the assembly line. To Wig outwe've all been there. We ARE there, at least i Am.And the "I" on a record is speaking for/as/to you, so If you're not wigging out, go no further, dear reader...(and then there is Dag Nasty, which I wont bother justifying , just a first flourish of the unstoppable need to name drop).the album.produced by the band and Remko Schouten, the Dutch soundman of Pavement fame, and owner of IJland studio in east Amsterdam.I don't know where to start... again. This record is inspired by Cologne Germany, Mark Von Schlegell, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Spar and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas. Imagined Weezer/Chili Peppers, Sic Alps, UVA in the late 80's, NYRB, Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, Jamming, Indie guys trying to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete Townshend, Pavement, the Joggers, The NBA, home life in the 2010's...We (Remko) found a studio over in the Ardennes with a" farmhouse vibe". It was isolated, rural Belgium... near Luxembourg, the cradle of morbid Tax relief. It went very well cuz the band is quite good....We were (are?) pretty psyched with results.I've spent the last couple years in Berlin. Berlin, while very hip and in some ways the "center" of Europe, is still isolated. At least if you are an American Dad. Pretty amazing place as you probably already know, and so easy to disappear into. Perhaps any " big" city has this quality but a New one (to me), where they speak German(mostly)....well, you can almost cease to exist. Which is of course a liberating fantasy.But after two years there, we were Starting to Exist. It was like an average birth, without pain. I worked the lyrics/chords out on a computer on someone else's table in someone else's apartment. And This is what you get: Projected Imaginings of ROck and ROll from the freezing north, rendered by West Coast stalwarts and a Dutch Uncle.And we feel compelled to share it with you.

with Naked Giants Toledo always knew he would return to Twin Fantasy. He never did complete the work. Not really. Never could square his grand ambitions against his mechanical limitations. Listen to his first attempt, recorded at nineteen on a cheap laptop, and you'll hear what Brian Eno fondly calls "the sound of failure" - thrilling, extraordinary, and singularly compelling failure. Will's first love, rendered in the vivid teenage viscera of stolen gin, bruised shins, and weird sex, was an event too momentous for the medium assigned to record it.Even so, even awkward and amateurish, Twin Fantasy is deeply, truly adored. Legions of reverent listeners carve rituals out of it: sobbing over "Famous Prophets," making out to 'Cute Thing', dancing their asses off as 'Bodys' climbs higher, higher. The distortion hardly matters. You can hear him just fine. You can hear everything. And you can feel everything: his hope, his despair, his wild overjoy. He's trusting you - plural you, thousands of you - with the things he can't say out loud. " I pretended I was drunk when I came out to my friends," he sings - and then, caught between truths, backtracks: " I never came out to my friends. We were all on Skype, and I laughed and changed the subject."You might be imagining an extended diary entry, an angsty transmission from a bygone LiveJournal set to power chords and cranked to eleven. You would be wrong. Twin Fantasy is not a monologue. Twin Fantasy is a conversation. You know, he sings, that I'm mostly singing about you. This is Will's greatest strength as a songwriter: he spins his own story, but he's always telling yours, too. Between nods to local details - Harper's Ferry, The Yellow Wallpaper, the Monopoly board collecting dust in his back seat - he leaves room for the fragile stuff of your own life, your own loves. From the very beginning, alone in his bedroom, in his last weeks of high school, he knew he was writing anthems. Someday, he hoped, you and I might sing these words back to him."It was never a finished work," Toledo says, "and it wasn't until last year that I figured out how to finish it." He has, now, the benefit of a bigger budget, a full band in fine form, and endless time to tinker. According to him, it took eight months of mixing just to get the drums right. But this is no shallow second take, sanitized in studio and scrubbed of feeling. This is the album he always wanted to make. It sounds the way he always wanted it to sound.It's been hard, stepping into the shoes of his teenage self, walking back to painful places. There are lyrics he wouldn't write again, an especially sad song he regards as an albatross. But even as he carries the weight of that younger, wounded Toledo, he moves forward. He grows. He revises, gently, the songs we love so much. In the album's final moments, in those " apologies to future me's and you's," there is more forgiveness than fury.This, Toledo says, is the most vital difference between the old and the new: he no longer sees his own story as a tragedy.He's not alone no more.

All Night With the Trashcan Sinatras Over 5 weeks, late in 2017, Frank Reader, Paul Livingston and John Douglas from the Trashcan Sinatras will be touring the USA as a three-piece acoustic lineup. The band mates celebrate their 30th anniversary, having formed in Irvine, Scotland in 1987. I've been in the band for thirty years now, says Livingston. That's a long time to be in any relationship. It's a good time to take stock, see how far we've come, and think about where we're headed.With six well-spaced full-length albums to their credit, starting with debut Cake in 1990, through last years Wild Pendulum, the band has written and released just north of 100 songs. Over the course of the tour, they plan to play each one of those songs. Now that weve reached a century of songs, says Reader, it feels like a good time to meet up with them all again, like a high school reunion. He adds, Those songs whose love and friendship weve nourished over the years will no doubt turn up most nights and show us why weve remained so close over the years, but itll be most interesting to see how those with whom weve lost touch have aged. He expects that some songs will turn up drunk and disheveled, while others may now be dashing and distinguishing, more so than we all would have guessed. I cant wait to meet them all again and find out.Every show will consist of two unique sets and fans can expect to hear some covers, too. Although the band often delves into its back catalog for obscurities, particularly during acoustic tours, many songs have never been played live. Others may never be played again. We will be playing some songs live that we have never attempted before, so in some ways, its a tightrope walk for us. But, these songs are what we have done with our lives, so I accept the challenge and will try to not look down, says Douglas. Performing acoustically will transport many of those 100 songs back to their origins. Most of our songs are written with acoustic guitars and voices in quiet, solitary rooms, so it will be nervy but exciting to bring that sound out of the backroom and into the light, says Douglas. According to Livingston, touring with no rhythm section means you have to take your cues more from the vocal. You can bend time and create space for the emotion of the song to come through. Thirty years on, this is a chance for the band to reflect on its past, take a look at the present and imagine where they might go next. Playing all of the songs theyve written seems a good way of celebrating the journey so far. Come along early, join the band in celebration and see which songs the evening brings.trashcansinatras.comInstagram - @thetrashcansinatrasTwitter - @thetrashcans
