Matt Moody: The bearded nightmare harbinger.
  • Matt Moody: The bearded nightmare harbinger.
* Mr. Jeremy Ferguson of Battle Tapes informs us that the long-lost Hands Down Eugene record, Narceologist, has been unearthed and is now available for download. Apparently, HDE's Matt Moody was in a dark, twisted, tortured place when he made this one, and it long since languished in a musty attic somewhere. It has now been excavated, dusted off, and presented to us "in luxurious Mono sound." Ferguson informs us that, in the coming days, we can also expect "live sets recorded from a Candice benefit" presented by Nashville's Dead, along with the Fifth Annual Battle Pod. Battle Tapes holiday onslaught!

* The Zut Alors have the spirit, too. They threw together a 45-minute jam fest they're calling “Merry Mixmas," and it features tunes from locals including Those Darlins, Cortney Tidwell, JEFF the Brotherhood, Milktooth, The Features, Heypenny, the Zuts themselves and more. Stream that bad boy here. Local nuggets onslaught!

* JEFF the Brotherhood were recently featured on Nylon TV. Turns out they like the "laid-back lifestyle" and "cheap rent" of Nashville. No mention of wine culture, but they do get absolutely wrecked on some Bolton's spicy fish. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for a split-second, super-stealthy cameo from Heavy Cream's Jessica McFarland. Very stealthy indeed. JEFF-taking-over-the-world onslaught!

* I know you've already gotten one audio-visual dose of The Greenhornes today, but how would you feel about some more? Here they are playing "Go Tell Henry" for the Wilcox Sessions. They also did it live on KEXP. Greenhornes media onslaught!

* Our very own Lance Conzett posted a lovely video of Casa Castile performing acoustic over at Dixie Downturn. In case the Thread of Doom piqued your interest in Casa Castile. Good tunes. Casa Castile's onslaught of charm!
