Bambi Lee Savage – Featured Band

Bambi Lee Savage announces the forthcoming release of her third solo album, Darkness Overshadowed. The album is produced by Mick Harvey (Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey), who also plays most of the backing instrumentation. Check out the sultry Twin Peaks-esque pop of the track, “Oh Loneliness”

As with most things in existence, it’s the secrets in music that speak truest. The fact that Bambi Lee Savage has remained a secret for so long is testament to that. Over the past 25 years, the world-wandering singer-songwriter has worked with Daniel Lanois as well as members of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Einstürzende Neubauten. She counts among her patrons Billy Bob Thornton and Bono. Her timeless ballads and haunted anthems are stark, lush, elemental, and ethereal as smoke. And like smoke, they conceal — even as they signal deeper mysteries well worth the effort of unveiling.

Strike Anywhere – Featured Band

Strike Anywhere’s new release, In Defiance of Empty Times, will be available on August 28th. Two sets were recorded in 2011; in Rochester in July and Richmond in September, and merged together for this very special release. Side Rochester features six songs captured from Strike Anywhere’s acoustic performance alongside labelmates Polar Bear Club, while Side Richmond was recorded during a benefit show for the IWW on the eve of the Occupy Movement in RVA.  Check out the new track from Side Richmond, “Extinguish”, exclusively on AMPMagazine.com now and enter to win a cd/t-shirt package as well. Strike Anywhere vocalist Thomas Barnett commented, “Side A (Rochester) is almost like a Peel session to me, an old BBC Radio one recording, or a very heartfelt but musical journey into the melodies and textures inside the songs. There is urgency and melancholy and a clarity of purpose bubbling up out of those acoustic performances that can sometimes get lost or sidelined in the headlong rush of a hardcore show. We’d been doing one-off acoustic shows for years, to benefit causes we support, and just to play our music in a different, and maybe less commodified context. But last Summer, we found ourselves really working out new arrangements and discovering new details in the songs as we prepared fqwaror these two events.” He continued, “Side B, recorded on the eve of the Occupy Movement, shows a rowdy, loud yet intimate snapshot of our hometown at its passionate best. The quiet surprise that’s in our voice is on record, as the songs translated beyond our expectation and simple hopes of transcending genre and seeing what happens without the noise and sweat of a punk show. We find out of course, that the noise and sweat follow, even without amps and pedals! The back end of the record builds into a party atmosphere that shows the songs inhabiting the room beyond us, transforming, then coming back louder and bigger. This is the riot folk for rioting folks.” Also be sure to check out Strike Anywhere on the annual Gwar-B-Q in Richmond, Virginia, featuring the one-and-only Gwar, The Casualties, Valient Thorr, and many others.  More information can be found here. Pre-order In Defiance of Empty Times from the B9Store.

Gallows – Featured Band

Gallows was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by long-term friends on the band Thomas Mitchener and Steve Sears at Broadfields Studio in Watford in May this year.  “We made this record self-titled as it musically defines the band known as Gallows as we exist today,” explained the band.  “This is our statement of intent, our laugh in the face of those who said Gallows were done when in reality, we’re just warming up,” they continue.  “We couldn’t feel more vindicated and proud.” Gallows are ready and fired up to take their new album on the road.  Known for putting on a killer live show, the band will bring their addictive, raucous energy to North America in November and tickets will be available beginning August 13th. A free download of the new, ferocious track “Last June” is available from www.gallows.co.uk.  Kicking off with a pounding, fuzzed-out bass drum attack, the song gives listeners a taste of what’s to come. Gallows track listing: 1.  Victim Culture 2.  Everybody Loves You (When You’re Dead) 3.  Last June 4.  Outsider Art 5.  Vapid Adolescent Blues 6.  Austere 7.  Depravers 8.  Odessa 9.  Nations – Never Enough 10.  Cult of Mary 11.  Cross of Lorraine

T. Mills

In the climate of today’s music industry, a do it yourself attitude can go a long way. T. Mills knows this firsthand.

Born Travis Tatum Mills, the 22-year-old was able to turn laptop musical experimentation in his bedroom into national tours and a recording contract with Columbia Records, all in just over two years. But the rapid ascent didn’t come without plenty of work.

From an early age, T. Mills was musically curious. As a kid growing up in California, he learned how to play guitar and drums, before soon getting into singing. He recalls being exposed to a shmorgas-board of musical flavors from an early age by his parents and relatives: “My dad is a huge Elvis fan. My mom was huge into Queen. My first CD that I can ever remember seeing was Nirvana Nevermind. I listened to The Eagles. My uncle was a huge Bone Thugs N Harmony fan, and he kind of got me into all of the hip-hop and R&B. He gave me an Usher tape when I was probably six years old. He gave me an R. Kelly tape. He got me into 2pac. I listened to a lot of Souls of Mischief. Pink Floyd was hella cool. Placebo. Once I got on the Internet, my tastes went all across the board. There was no genre I wasn’t listening to. Sade. Eric Clapton. Bob Dylan.”
