Human Cannonball  

Posted at 10:40 am

Southeast Engine’s wildly talented bassist & harmony vocalist Jesse Remnant writes and records in a band called Human Cannonball. Backed by a band of equally talented Dayton, OH sons, Remnant’s knack for melody is quite remarkable. Here is a piece Don Thrasher (Guided By Voices, Swearing at Motorists, Smug Brothers) recently did on the group for the Dayton Daily News.

Human Cannonball self-releases their debut Let’s Be Friends this weekend in Remnant’s hometown of Dayton, OH. The band plays Canal St. Tavern Saturday night @ 9:30 PM with Tim Pritchard & The Boxcar Ensemble and Josh Eagle & Harvest City.

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!
