Posted at 11:35 am

mus-I-col

Ohio’s own Joel Oliphint recently wrote a phenomenal Pitchfork feature on Columbus’ famed Mus-I-col Recording Studio. Mus-I-col (est. 1964) is where our beloved Black Swans recorded their most recent album Occasion for Song. In doing so, the band joined a long line of greats who have recorded at the legendary studio. The article features a Black Swans song, quotes from Black Swans frontman Jerry DeCicca, as well as quotes from Ohio friends Bela Koe-Krompecher (Anyway Records), Adam Elliott (Times New Viking), and much more. Writer Joel Oliphint was also the longtime editor of Donewaiting – Ohio’s main independent music blog. GOhio!

Donewaiting – Ohio’s Main Independent Music Blog – will Cease Digital Operations, Go Print-Only with 10th Anniversary Bash  

Posted at 11:30 am

Donewaiting is raising the middle finger to the Internet – to the inundated, fast-paced, chintzy culture that often transforms otherwise thoughtful citizens into distracted mental loafers. Of course, this is not always the case, but it happens enough to make any online entity exhausted after a decade.

Yes, Ohio’s main independent music blog is ending digital production in February and will become a print-only entity in the summer. This will commence upon the 10th Anniversary of the blog and Donewaiting plans to release one issue per year. Misra Manager Leo DeLuca wrote for Donewaiting over the past year and mainly championed bands in his hometown of Dayton, OH. Here’s a feature DeLuca wrote on the 15th anniversary of Timmy Taylor’s passing. Taylor was frontman for legendary Dayton band 3RA1N1AC (Brainiac).

Donewaiting have put the final touches on their anniversary/goodbye/hello weekend in Columbus, OH. Here are the details:

Friday, February 15 @ Ace of Cups | Facebook RSVP

Southeast Engine Plugged – Sassy Live Video  

Posted at 7:28 pm

Some nice early mentions from Hear Ya, Donewaiting, and Ghettoblaster on Southeast Engine’s Canaanville EP – out July 31 (same day as The Black Swans’ Occasion for Song).

To note: Misra never made that quote in the Hear Ya piece, though it is humorous. Canaanville is a 4-song appendix EP designed to accompany Canary (2011). It’s being sold as a T-Shirt Album here.

Here is a live video Sarah Laubacher took at the band’s recent Cincinnati show at MOTR. Fun!

Black Swans House Show Videos – Columbus Alive! & Donewaiting  

Posted at 12:43 pm

The Black Swans have been one of Grandma’s very favorites for a long while now. She first saw them play back in 2004 at Donkey Coffee in Athens, OH on the heels of their debut album Who Will Walk in the Darkness with You? 

The band has changed a lot since then, but still managed to retain the same beautiful, strange, intelligent ethos. Here is evidence of all that — a house show video of the song “Fickled & Faded” off their forthcoming Misra release Occasion for Song (July 31). It’s one in a series now up on The Black Swans YouTube channel.

Too, Columbus Alive! and Donewaiting did nice previews on the new album a bit back. Look for an unrolling of national press upon the album’s release. You can pre-order Occasion for Song here for a limited-time lower price.

Thanks for supporting independent music!
