Made you look...But this is just as exciting.
Damn You! and Good Name for a Racehorse presesnts:
'A Constellation Records night'
Carla could genuinely be described as an enigma. She's made confrontational noise records, released music on the Minutemen's New Alliance label, covered an entire Willie Nelson album and had a lengthy major label recording career as the force behind the Geraldine Fibbers.
Now she's touring her latest record Evangelista which has been released on the Constellation label and features many of her new label mates from Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Silver Mt Zion, as well as members of The Mae Shi and other fine bands.
It is dark, challenging and at times scary as all hell. I wouldn't want to be as cheap as to equate the music with something in her life as I don't know her but interviews suggest the album details her reaction to a break up with her longtime partner and musical sideman Nels Cline (Wilco).
She will not play in Nottingham again for a very very very long time. Of that, you can be almost positive.
Project of Mike Moya, a founder member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and one of the most enigmatic, talented and unclassifiable men in the alt.rock scene.
Hrsta's music consists of sad, exotic melodies with disquieting swells of six-string mayhem, creepy outer-worldly drones, volatile clench-teeth vocals and drums that start from nowhere than become immense before your eyes and ears; all this creating an epic swirl of dense, rotting, blissful psychedelia. They will melt your mind and win your heart.
Along with gun crime, Felix is helping to put Nottingham on the map. She's one of the best artists in this fair city. Her music is sultry, soulful and beautiful, but has more than enough power to transcend such female singer-songwriter cliches. Like Cat Power with added oomph.
