Upcoming: Tamar-Kali's Psychochamber Ensemble @ Weeksville – July 11


If you missed her at Irondale, then here's your chance to catch this exciting string ensemble.  It's something different  from the geechee hardcore warrior soul we've come to expect to from her, but no less compelling. It's on the lawn, so bring a blanket. Additional link: Weeksville Salon Series

LISTENING POST: Tamar-Kali — "Pearl" (+ two mixes!)


Two words: Glory Hallelujah. There's a new Tamar-Kali single available to savor and enjoy.  It gives us a taste of things to come, and whets our appetite for the new album, Black Bottom, that will drop in the new year, probably late spring. "Pearl" is a great guitar-driven grind, a joyful, exhuberant fury, even though [...]

Post-Festival Highlights

LISTENING POST: Honeychild Coleman — “Echelon” (Pariah soundtrack)

  If you have heard about it, please look out for filmmaker Dee Rees’ debut feature Pariah, which will be released by Focus Features in NY and LA at the end of the month and then nationally in January.  Rees has turned in an excellent, small film about a young Brooklynite who quietly but firmly embraces her identity as a lesbian.
