For those unfamiliar, The series has been Robert Lange's (aka Helado Negro) vehicle to further explore the imprint of his past releases. Island Universe Story is not a placeholder between records, a teaser release, a build up or a time killer. Lange views the series as a shadow to his full lengths, dialogue in a continuous narrative. Think of it as though Helado N...]]> April 24, 2014 http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/helado-negro-island-universe-story-three-series Blake Gillespie (Hot Cheetos) Emo Band or Dave Eggers title? http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/emo-band-or-dave-eggers-title In the last few years Dave Eggers has been turning over novels quicker than most bands turn over albums. In 2012 he released [title shall temporarily remain nameless for the purposes of the quiz below] about an American businessman's adventures in the Middle East, followed by [again, nameless] in 2013, a terrifying look at where tech culture might be leading us.

Aware of his station, the greeting of Intuition & Equalibrum simply states, "I heard we got that shit you waiting on / a deep breathe, release pressure / now the weight is gone." Spoken solemnly over bluesy soul production by Equalibrum, Intuit...]]> April 24, 2014 http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/stream-intuition-equalibrum Blake Gillespie (Just Heard) Thee Oh Sees Will Play Northside Festival http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/thee-oh-sees-playing-northside-festival In December, Jon Dwyer told a San Francisco audience that it would be the last show Thee Oh Sees would play in a while. We lamented the band's potential breakup, forgetting that "a while" for a group as prolific as Thee Oh Sees probably wasn't going to be as long as we thought it was—it's kind of like they operate on the band equivalent of dog years. The "indefinite hiatus" barely even lasted through winter, as the group just released a new full-length album...]]> April 24, 2014 http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/thee-oh-sees-playing-northside-festival Ryan Bort (Scene and Heard) Hamilton Leithauser at Joe's Pub http://www.imposemagazine.com/photos/hamilton-leithauser-at-joes-pub Hamilton Leithauser, of The Walkmen, performed at Joe's Pub on Wednesday, April 16th with a full band.

(Debut) White Reaper, "Conspirator" http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/white-reaper-conspirator-mp3 This isn’t the first we’ve heard of White Reaper; earlier this year they popped up on our Louisville Report, riding high off the insanity that is their 2013 self-released single, “Conspirator.” Well, that song obviously struck a chord with someone, because the Louisville trio is now a part of Polyvinyl’s roster. And “Conspirator” is still a single, but now it’s the preview of White Reaper’s eponymous EP. Across its three-and-a-half minute ti...]]> April 24, 2014 http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/white-reaper-conspirator-mp3 Zack Wilks (Debut) A Victim of Society, "Sweet Girl" http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/a-victim-of-society-sweet-girl-mp3 The Inner Ear imprint has kept us up to date on all the up and coming artists and groups from Athens, Greece; presenting us today with the debut track, "Sweet Girl", from A Victim of Society. The duo team of Vagelis Makris and Fotis Ntouskas have coupled the outsider attitudes with the derelict drifter mindsets of outlaw rock as they prepare to release their album, Distractions for Inner Ear at the end of April. Managing to pack all the tumultous socio-economic-political conditions Ath...]]> April 24, 2014 http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/a-victim-of-society-sweet-girl-mp3 Sjimon Gompers (Scene and Heard) Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, The Recordettes and Raye at Knitting Factory http://www.imposemagazine.com/photos/holly-golightly-and-the-brokeoffs-the-recordettes-and-raye-at-knitting-factory On Wednesday, April 16th, Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs (a.k.a. her longtime band mate, Lawyer Dave) performed at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory.
