R. Ring, the new band of The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery, have seen some wonderful press. People are so excited to see Kelley back in action and it brings joy to our hearts. Oh, Deal is creating, creating, creating. The world needs it now more than ever. Mike Montgomery is the perfect musical partner for her. R. Ring slays.
Oh, Holy Night, R. Ring have been getting some serious love. In addition to the previously mentioned Pitchfork feature, check out some of the press they’ve received below. Pre-order their debut “Fallout & Fire” b/w “See” 7″ here.
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.
Grandma’s old friends in The Wrens made Stereogum’s Top 20 Albums We’ve Been Waiting For Forever today. Coincidentally, Misra’s History page was just updated to include The Wrens’ compact, yet pivotal, part in the label’s story. We’ll gladly wait another 9 years if the forthcoming record is as wonderful as their past efforts. We’re sure it will be. Hellz bellz.
