Southeast Engine: KEXP Video + Phenomenal PopMatters Piece + Alison Vagnini Photos + More!  

Posted at 1:58 pm

Great Praise continues to roll in for Southeast Engine, including a phenomenal piece by Andrew Gilstrap of PopMatters called “Fear and Hope in the Great Depression,” as well as a beautiful acoustic video of “Ruthie” (off SEE’s Canary). The video was filmed live at Pickathon by the kindhearted badasses of KEXP in Seattle and The PopMatters article addresses the themes of both Canary (2011) and its companion EP Canaanville (2012).

In addition, the band had some wonderful new photos taken by the wildly talented Alison Vagnini while they were touring through Denver, CO on their way to Pickathon 2012. The first is up there for all to see.

 

Southeast Engine Continues to Impress | Mountain Stage Performance Rebroadcast  

Posted at 6:45 am

A week after the release of Canaanville, the praise continues to roll in.  Andrew Gistrap describes Canaanville and Canary as “[o]ne of the most recent, and most striking portrayals of small-town life” in his eloquent field study for PopMatters.  It’s not every day they appear on a list with Kanye and Ben Gibbard, but in their “must hear countdown” AV Club says: “Old Oak Tree” is a sweet little tune about love, death, and small-town living.”  The boys even had a chance to catch up with WOUB.

In addition, NPR’s Mountain Stage will be rebroadcasting Southeast Engine’s performance from last October.  You can listen to it on your local NPR affiliate on August 10th.

Timothy & Elizabeth Bracy: The Paranoid Style, Writing for Washington Post, NPR, Sterogum, & More  

Posted at 12:52 pm

Time & Breath eat cake. 

In recent days, Misra co-founder and Mendoza Line frontman Timothy Bracy, alongside wife and Bird of Youth accordionist Elizabeth Nelson, have duly heartened Grandma via word and sound. The dream twosome have been writing for The Washington Post, NPR, Stereogum, etc. and rocking in a new band called The Paranoid Style.

  • Read this Stereogum feature Tim & Beth wrote on The Replacements’ Please to Meet Me turning 25.
  • Watch The Paranoid Style’s ”Subtraction By Subtraction” video. Fun side note: this number also features Southeast Engine keyboardist Billy Matheny & Southeast Engine drummer/Misra manager Leo DeLuca.

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!

The Black Swans & Southeast Engine on GEMS Benefit with Nat Baldwin and more  

Posted at 12:59 pm

The Black Swans and Southeast Engine are both featured on the recent release of Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit Compilation for Gems. The comp features Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors) and artists from K, Domino, Western Vinyl, and more. It was released by our good friend David Pokrivnak of Wild Kindness Records to help GEMS – a New York-based organization designed to serve females, ages 12-24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.

Misra Manager Leo DeLuca wrote the press release for Sunshine, which you can read here:

Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit for GEMS – Press Release:

On March 31, 2012 Wild Kindness Records will release Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit for GEMS. Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS) is a New York-based organization designed to serve females, ages 12-24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. GEMS’ mission is to empower girls and young women to exit the commercial sex industry and develop their full potential. Sunshine Off the Tracks features contributions from a wide array of independent musicians and record labels.

The idea for a benefit compilation was first conceived when members of the Wild Kindness team viewed Very Young Girls – a documentary detailing the atrocities of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. Deeply moved by the film, and surrounded by a community of talented artists, the WK team decided to cull a songset to benefit the cause. Envisioning it to be solely released by Wild Kindness, this notion quickly changed when artists and labels across the country began to show great response and an eagerness to contribute.

Sunshine Off the Tracks is one small way to spread the message of GEMS and work toward ending the commercial sex industry. Wild Kindness would like to extend its sincere gratitude to GEMS, the many artists and labels who contributed to the cause, and those who show their support through the purchase of this album. Thank you.
