Transistor Six Sessions pay homage to the BBC’s Peel Sessions. They invite artists into their little studio setup at ‘Frank’ in Austin, record a few live songs, take some photos with their Lomo film cameras, do an interview, and often shoot a film on Super 8.

While R. Ring was down in Austin for SXSW 2012, Transistor Six caught up with them. Check out the beautiful work they did! We are grateful for all the time, care, and thought put into R. Ring’s session!

Kelley Deal of R. Ring & The Breeders Heads on Tour with the Latter  

Posted at 11:15 am

breedersxxA reminder that R. Ring’s Kelley Deal will join the reunited Last Splash-era Breeders (Josephine, Jim, Kelley, Kim) to celebrate 4AD’s deluxe reissue of this wonderful album. The reissue arrives in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Last Splash (yes, it really is 20 years old).

Misra’s R. Ring release got some love around the announcement of it all. “Fallout & Fire” was featured in Pitchfork’s announcement of the 20th Anniversary reissue of The Breeders’ Last Splash.

This is particularly exciting for Misra, as three of the Last Splash-era Breeders (Kelley, her identical twin sister Kim Deal, and drummer Jim McPherson) live right here in the label’s hometown of Dayton, OH. The band will do a warm-up show at the Southgate House Revival – a historic regional venue and the original mansion of Tommy gun inventor John T. Thompson.

R. Ring Nominated “New Artist of the Year” at Cincinnati Entertainment Awards  

Posted at 10:23 am

rringjacket

R. Ring have been nominated as “New Artist of the Year” via the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. While front-woman Kelley Deal resides in Dayton, OH, front-man Mike Montgomery is a resident of nearby Dayton, KY (Greater Cincinnati area). The proximity of Mike’s locale puts them in the running. Do check out this amusing interview with R. Ring via Cincinnati’s City Beat rag.

CB: Kelley, I’m curious about your vocal approach, which is marked by this girlish, slightly affected croon that has become your trademark. How did you come to this way of singing?

KD: Gross. I have an image of Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? in my mind!
