    Warehouse Live presents Man Man With Shilpa Ray Man Man is a fearlessly unique band from Philadelphia The group's fifth full length album On Oni Pond features an arresting reconstruction of the group's visionary sound stripped to its core and rebuilt as something new and compelling yet still very much Man Man This marked shift is a direct result of an intensive collaboration between the band's frontman, Honus Honus, and drummer Pow Pow, who has assumed a new-found prominence in the songwriting process, bringing an exhilarating array of new rhythmic ideas to the mix "With this album we got to do something that very few bands or creative people get to do which is a reboot, and one that feels natural," comments Honus Honus In a review of a track called "Head On," Pitchfork writes that Man Man "have taken their licks and endured, evolving from their excitable and divisive Beefheart/Zappa-influenced early work into rich and resonant piano pop that values populism over provocation" The compositions on the new album were honed by the band members along with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) into a compelling mash-up of Fear Of Music era Talking Heads, classic soul, psychedelia, hip hop, and 50's rock and roll With its imaginative yet economical rhythms, huge hooks, and overriding sense of urgency, On Oni Pond melds these seemingly disparate influences into an unexpectedly lush, melodic album, exquisitely consolidated by the band's unique and affecting vision "This is a strange and beautiful record but it's also head on and fearless," says Honus Honus "It's not a record that's going to flirt with you, this is a record that's asking you out If you get into bed with us there's going to be a relationship" Man Man's latest also expresses Honus Honus' evolution as a lyricist Consistently inventive, the lyrics now have a new poignancy and insight that makes this album as personal and reflective as it is joyous The thematic centerpiece of the record is the bittersweet, deconstructed soul anthem "Head On" Simultaneously melancholy and inspiring, the track features a unique take on personal resilience exemplified by the lines, "Are you dreaming of death? Are there ghosts in your chest?" and "I need new skin for this old skeleton of mine 'cause this one that I'm in has let me down once again over time," which build into the refrain "Hold onto your heart, hold it high above flood waters, hold onto your heart, never let nobody drag it under" With On Oni Pond, Man Man has delivered a beautifully weird and unforgettable collection of songs From the pounding syncopated drumming, psychedelic organ and impassioned crooning of "Pink Wonton" to the sneering new wave dub of "King Shiv" and the big beat bratty swagger of "Loot My Body," this is an undeniably ambitious band reborn to new, focused greatness TWITTER: https://twittercom/manmanbandband TWITTER: https://twittercom/shilparayisgod

    Warehouse Live presents Tera Melos "Akin to the type of freak-pop perversion dished out by daring pioneers like Devo and The Flaming Lips"Wired Melding the aggression of punk with the technical intricacies of prog rock, Tera Melos use jerky shifts in time signatures and disjointed guitar noodling bearing a close resemblance to Don Caballero and Hella Like their counterparts in complicated rock, finger-tapped guitar parts are the centerpiece, complemented by angular bass riffs and splintered spazz-jazz drumming, but contrasting dynamics are a bigger focus of the bands songs, with ambient electronics and sparse vocal lines occasionally incorporated into the interludes to offset some of the more convoluted and noisier sections Following stints in hardcore projects No Regard, Hoods, and Stabbed in the Throat, guitarist Nick Reinhart, drummer Jeff Worms, and bassist Nate Latona started Tera Melos in 2004 Months after forming, they started playing shows, making an immediate impact on the Sacramento live circuit with chaotic live performances that demonstrated their ability to play while doing cartwheels, guitar stands, and amp flips Their first album, Tera Melos, was self-released in 2005 Heavy touring followed and, exhausted by life on the road, Worms left the band to settle down shortly after recording the Drugs to the Dear Youth EP Vince Rogers came in as a replacement drummer, touring continued, and the band found solace in the roster of Sargent House, home of similar-minded artists These Arms Are Snakes and Maps & Atlases Drugs to the Dear Youth was re-released on CD that year, and a five-song split with By the End of Tonight followed, alongside extensive US touring with Heavy Heavy Low Low and the Fall of Troy Drummer John Clardy replaced Rogers before the arrival of their 2010 album, Patagonian Rats The bands next record, Xed Out, took a more direct approach and was released on Sargent House in 2013 TWITTER: https://twittercom/teramelos

    Warehouse Live presents Oceans of Slumber - Acoustic/Unplugged Show With Anova Skyway Houston Progressive Metallers OCEANS OF SLUMBER Release Aetherial On February 1st OCEANS OF SLUMBER self-released a progressive metal whirlwind called Aetherial Labeling a band like OCEANS OF SLUMBER is never quite as easy as one would think The Houston band features in its ranks the drummer of grind purists INSECT WARFARE (among many others), a degreed Jazz guitarist, and an all-around cast of "players' players" What results from this collective of skilled musicians and a broad cross section of influence is the adventurous Aetherial Musical classification is of no interest to the band however Instead, OCEANS OF SLUMBER create waves of stimulating atmosphere and use their talents to exploit the dynamics of the music, thereby creating the undeniably epic wall of sound that has become the Texans' trademark The person responsible for the mixing and mastering of Aetherial, UK madman Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, EVILE, etc), had this to say about his work with Houston prog-metallers: "Oceans of Slumber are of one of the top 10 bands I've ever worked with The perfect mixture of sheer brutality with ultimate musicianship taking you on a journey through music Old school metal mixed with prog and psychedelia brought right up to date with cutting death metal and black metal influences All my favorite stuff rolled into one!" OCEANS OF SLUMBER are as comfortable drudging their way through doom-laden epic "Coffins Like Kites" as they are playing the caustic, country-tinged black metal of "Primordial," as well as shifting gears seamlessly into the soaring melodies of the KING CRIMSON inspired "Blackest Cloud" only to return to the sonic brutality that is the title track Interpretation remains the province of the listener With the intention of crossing every musical boundary, OCEANS OF SLUMBER creates an undeniable atmosphere of beauty and extremity with its very capable lineup of musicians TWITTER: https://twittercom/OceansofSlumber

    Warehouse Live presents Alpha Rev Unplugged With JARED & THE MILL, Folk Family Revival "I want the band to mark a moment in time, to celebrate the being of something new; The light at the end of the tunnel, the first step toward revealing something that needs to be seen," says singer-songwriter Casey McPherson of Alpha Rev Following the Triple A Radio success of New Morning (2010), the band's third album Bloom (March 19, 2013 on Kirtland Records) is a set of personally transformative and redemptive songs, born in the spirit of creative expansion, and a mandate to blossom and grow "To bloom implies something beautiful is going to happen, but it's a process---just like our own journeys," says McPherson "Casey and I met when we were really young, and have been playing music with each other off and on over the past 13 years," explains guitarist Zak Loy "That growth comes across in the music the group is creating now," he says Rooted in lyrical wisdom, the more recent addition of drummer Tabber Millard---trained by master percussionists---is credited for the band's contemporary tribal rhythms "Tabber means drummer boy in Arabic and his life revolves around this gift he has," says McPherson Newest Alpha Rev addition Jeff Bryant rounds out the band, playing pedal steel, piano, organ, and bass With a glistening rock sound that is at once fragile and tough, Bloom picks up threads from the past while it takes a big bite into the eternal here and now Drawing from the wellspring of American history, the grandeur of its landscape, and life's sweet and tragic mysteries, McPherson leans into his personal challenges as well as the wages of the 21st Century and emerges with a triumphant statement on the ways in which music can serve as a constant source of strength and inspiration The shimmering, hymn-like "Sing Loud" - created with songwriter/producer Jamie Kenney ("He's cut from the same stone I am," says McPherson) - confronts a failing relationship, "But with the belief that you're going to experience freedom again," McPherson explains Love and death informs the heart-wrenching "Lexington," based on actual historical love letters from Civil War soldiers to their wives and families "The amount of pain they were in to be away from those they loved while their lives were at stake was incredible," says McPherson "'Black Sky,' is about dealing with losing everything you have from a fire 'Lonely Man,' is about losing your family from working too much and 'When You Gonna Run,' is about losing the ability to look good in front of somebody," he says "Alpha Rev is a collective of musicians," explains McPherson, "Once you join, you're never really gone" On Bloom, Alex Dunlap holds down the bass, while Brian Batch (violin, viola) and Dave Wiley (cello) serve as the band's string section The players were joined in the studio by a longtime friend of McPherson's, Dwight Baker (Brandi Carlile, Bob Schneider); he oversaw the project in his Austin studio Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom "Austin is a great city that takes care of musicians; it helps foster ideas and creativity," says McPherson Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom Since his beginnings in Jackson, Texas, where he was classically trained on piano, McPherson has traveled the distance: Working in a recording studio by age 16, at 17 he was touring overseas as a keyboard player; at 19 he formed Endochine, its name translating from its Latin and Greek roots as "to explode from within" Turning once again to ancient alphabets for his band's handle, "Alpha Rev is a combination of the Greek word for the beginning, and the incredible Latin prefix rev, as in revolve, revolt, reveal," he says The band's Hollywood Records debut, New Morning (produced by David Kahne) rose to #3 on the Triple A chart, reaching an audience 40 million listeners-strong The title song and "Phoenix Burn" also entered the charts Yet while scaling his own dreams, McPherson lost both his father and brother to suicide Forming in 2005, Alpha Rev, became a vehicle to grapple with the outpouring of grief that results from losses of that magnitude Today, McPherson helps others who've lost family to depression and suicide as a volunteer spokesperson for the National Institute of Mental Health organization, Mental Health America of Texas http://mhatexasorg/ "Music changes people," says McPherson "We're trying to find happiness in music as opposed to self-destruction," he says "It's my desire, and has always been to be a part of our group, that we make each other better musicians, we make each other better men, we challenge each other, we fight and we forgive Everybody in the band has really adopted that ideal," says McPherson "Alpha Rev is more than a band name---it's a motto" TWITTER: https://twittercom/alpharev TWITTER: https://twittercom/jaredandthemill TWITTER: https://twittercom/folkfamily

Drake’s Alleged Ghostwriter Says He’s Not Drake’s Ghostwriter

In the midst of Meek Mill’s attack on Drake’s auteurist sensibilities, he issued a tweet bearing what might have been the two most damning words in his whole tirade: Quentin Miller.
