Minne Lusa at O’Leaver’s, April 26, 2019.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

As far as I can tell, there is no music from the band Minne Lusa online anywhere, and that’s a shame, because I’d like to listen to some right now.

Fronted by Matt Rutledge, ex of bands Compost and The Sons of… among others, with guitarist Pat Reefe (ex-Tomato a Day), bassist Alan Legge and drummer Eric Ebers (ex-Ritual Device), you’d expect a bombastic sound. But the vibe was subdued, if not serene, when the four-piece took O’Leaver’s stage Friday night, playing in the dark beneath a shimmering lighting effect that made the stage feel as if under water. So did the music.

Rutledge used what appeared to be a vintage copper microphone that distorted his voice, making it sound static-y and distant. The effect, along with the laid-back groove, reminded me of early Galaxy 500 music. The set was half instrumentals and half sung in French, sort of The Album Leaf meets Daniel Lanois. And while the guitars had a lonely elegance, Ebers’ drumming cut through the shimmer with crisp military precision. That contrast between Ebers and the rest of the band took it to a new place that you’ll want to go to.

I’m told the band has been in the studio; here’s hoping an LP is on its way.

Domestica at O’Leaver’s, April 26, 2019.

The night’s band order for Friday’s show was a bit of a controversy, but in the end no one wanted to follow Domestica. And who can blame them?

The band hit the stage after midnight and ripped through their usual bombastic set. I’ve been watching Heidi and Jon blow up venues for more than 20 years, and it never gets old. And, seemingly, neither do they.

* * *

Tonight at The Waiting Room it’s The Drums. The Brooklyn band fronted by Jonny Pierce released their latest, Brutalism, earlier this month on Anti- Records. Tanukichan, featuring San Francisco’s Hannah Van Loon, opens at 8:30 p.m. $18.

Mercy Rule goes online; Wagon Blasters, Domestica, Minne Lussa tonight; Priests Saturday; Murs Sunday…

Mercy Rule albums God Protects Fools and Providence. Both are now available on major streaming services.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Caulfield Records yesterday announced that legendary Lincoln post-punk band Mercy Rule’s first two albums, God Protects Fools and Providence, became available for streaming at the usual services.

I first fell for Mercy Rule with their debut; while their 1999 release, Flat Black Chronicles (also available on streaming platforms), quickly become a favorite. I never gave Providence the attention it deserved, having owned it only on cassette. I must tell you, after listening to it this morning, it, along with the other two albums, have held up well after 25 years. Find out for yourself:

* * *

Speaking of Mercy Rule, the band’s current incarnation, Domestica, plays tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s. It’ll be just like old times as joining them on the bill is Wagon Blasters, whose members include Gary Dean Davis, the former frontman of ’90s tractor punk band Frontier Trust, who often shared bills with Mercy Rule back in the day. Headlining is Minne Lussa, a band consisting of Eric Ebers (Ritual Device), Alan Legge, Matt Rutledge on vocals and guitar, and Pat Reefe. 10 p.m., $5.

Tomorrow night (Saturday), D.C. post-punk band Priests headlines at Reverb Lounge. The band played the Maha Music Festival back in 2017 – you can read a Ten Questions interview with them right here. Their latest, The Seduction of Kansas, was released earlier this year on Sister Polygon Records. German garage-rock duo Gurr opens at 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Denver garage rock act The Ghoulies plays at O’Leaver’s with headliner Orca Welles. Lincoln up-and-comers Histrionic open at 8 p.m. according to the listing (I’m dubious about that start time). $5.

Finally Sunday, legendary indie hip-hop artist Murs headlines at The Waiting Room. Openers are Locksmith and Cojo. $20, 8 p.m.

And that’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it inthe comments section. Have a great weekend.

Maha 2019 undercard includes Snail Mail, Beach Bunny, Matt & Kim, and who plays which night; David Dondero tonight…

Category: Blog — Tags: , , — @ 12:41 pm April 25, 2019
Dave Dondero at The Concert for Equality, 7/31/10.

David Dondero at The Concert for Equality, 7/31/10. He plays tonight at Reformed, Studio and Assembly Space.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

This line from a Jan. 3 Chicago Tribune article about 2019 Maha Festival artist Beach Bunny caught my eye: “Beach Bunny’s songs are intimate and practical in a way that recalls Liz Phair — with whom Trifilio is unfamiliar.” First thought: How is that possible, especially for a female indie artist? But then I quickly realized that Exile in Guyville came out 26 years ago, about four years before Beach Bunny frontwoman Lili Trifilio was born.

The story’s next sentence was more curious than anything: “But like Phair, her audience is heavily comprised of young women.” Was Phair’s audience ever heavily comprised of young women? Anyway, Beach Bunny’s music in no way resembles Phair’s. It sounds more like Alvvays or Middle Kids or even fellow 2019 Maha Festival artist Snail Mail, a somewhat hot indie act whose 2018 debut, Lush, was released on Matador. Snail Mail’s played Omaha before.

These two artist seem like natural complements for a festival that includes other powerhouse women-led indie acts like Jenny Lewis and Courtney Barnett.

Duckwrth, an artist I’ve never heard of, appears to be playing the role of the representative male hip-hop artist. There’s not much about him online. He released his debut solo album I’m Uugly in 2016.

Matt Maeson is another mystery to me. He’s released three albums on Atlantic starting in 2017 and has some connection to Mumford and Sons’ Ben Lovett. His first solo tour was presented by Communion, Lovett’s organization. I’m not sure how you’d describe the music, though I’d agree with All Music who compares him to Mt. Joy.

Who am I missing from this year’s line-up? Oh yeah, Matt and Kim. They played Maha back in 2013, and if I remember correctly, the crowd loved them, which I assume is why they were asked back.

One other act of note that’s sort of playing the festival is Touch & Go artist Pinback. The San Diego band, who released the bulk of their albums in the ’00 era, is a favorite among indie rock enthusiasts, including myself. They’re playing at The Waiting Room the Thursday night before the music portion of the festival kicks off, for a flat $15 ticket price, which makes me wonder if they weren’t already booked at TWR before Maha started planning 2019’s lineup.

Maha continues to support local artists, though this year’s selections is a collection of bar bands who play the local scene and haven’t done extensive touring: Muscle Cousins, Bach Mai and Domestic Blend. I’d be curious how these acts were chosen. Also on the bill is DJ Shark Week and Esencia Latina Band. Quite a contrast to last year’s highlight local act, David Nance, who has recorded a couple nationally lauded albums and toured the U.S. and overseas.

And now, the Friday/Saturday breakdown (I’m surprised they already announced this! They made us wait last year):

Friday night, Aug. 17

Jenny Lewis
Courtney Barnett
Snail Mail
Esencia Latina Band
Sharkweek

Saturday, Aug. 17

Lizzo
Matt and Kim
Oh Sees
Duckwrth
Matt Maeson
Beach Bunny
Muscle Cousins
Domestic Blend
Sharkweek

I’m surprised Barnett is playing Friday night instead of Saturday, but I assume it’s more about her schedule than theirs. There’s only two acts on Saturday that are pulling me in: Thee Oh Sees and Lizzo. Friday night is rocket fuel.

I’m running long, so we’ll talk about ticket prices next week.

* * *

Singer/songwriter David Dondero is playing tonight at Reformed, Studio and Assembly Space, 3101 So. 20th St., just south of 20th and Vinton. I’m not familiar with this venue, but I think it’s a church. Dondero has played through Omaha for years and is a pal of Conor Oberst, who has cited him as an influence. Joining him is Tom Bartolomei and Mark Johnson. $10. 8 p.m.

Can Lizzo, Lewis, Barnett and Thee Oh Sees sell tix? Maha thinks so; Jason Steady and Chris Twist tonight…

Category: Blog — Tags: , , , , — @ 12:39 pm April 24, 2019

Jason Steady and the Soft Ponies at Burrito Envy, Oct. 26, 2018. Jason returns with Chris Twist tonight for an early 7 p.m. album release show.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

By now you’re familiar with this year’s Maha Festival line-up. On the day they announced the bands I was thrilled, and said something like “I’m going to provide an in-depth review Monday, blah-blah-blah…” But Monday came and I didn’t have time before work; same thing Tuesday. And now here we are, and while I think it is, indeed, my favorite line-up they’ve ever put together, I’m wonder how well it’ll draw.

For example, headliner Lizzo isn’t exactly a household name like Weezer or Death Cab for Cutie. When I posted in as much Friday, someone said “You just wait and see.” But I’ve had a handful of people who follow indie music and Maha ask me who the heck she is. Her style is hard to describe. I consider her a modern-day Queen Latifah. I didn’t discover her until she came through Omaha a couple years ago, when I watched a couple of her YouTube videos, and flipped for “Good as Hell.”

No doubt the audience for Lizzo isn’t your typical indie fan. Her new record, Cuz I Love You (2019, Atlantic), is getting positive/mixed reviews (some complained she’s trying too hard to make a hit). And no doubt she’ll be touring late night TV for the next few months.

Jenny Lewis and Courtney Barnett are personal favorites. Lewis has a hot new album, On the Line (2019, Warner Bros.), and is a long-time friend of the Nebraska scene from way back in the Saddle Creek glory days. Barnett has written some of the best indie songs in the past few years. Her record that came out in 2018, Tell Me How You Really Feel (Mom + Pop Records) was on my favorites list. The caveat for Barnett – I’ve seen her perform at SXSW a few years ago and she basically just stood up there and played with little crowd interaction, so it was kind of a snore, but… great music.

The highlight of the line-up (for me, anyway) is Thee Oh Sees. A garage/psych-rock band that in my opinion blows away anything Jack White has ever done. I’ve been bitching for years that this band has avoided Omaha/Lincoln on all its national tours, which made me think they had something against Nebraska, though I know a lot of rabid Oh Sees fans around here.

The band is powered by guitarist/vocalist/legend John Dwyer, a madman on stage. I’ve seen them play a couple times in Austin. Expect craziness. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they play in the field among the crowd instead of on stage. I’ve loved this band and Dwyer’s previous band, Coachwhips, for years. But again, though there’s a hardcore following among in-the-know indie people locally, Thee Oh Sees are very likely widely unknown among Omaha’s great unwashed masses. So, not likely to be a big ticket-seller. And neither is the rest of the line-up… More tomorrow (probably)…

* * *

Tonight at, of all places, Burrito Envy & Tequila Bar in Benson, Chris Twist and Jason Steady are celebrating the release of their new album, Return of the Paisley Angels. I’ve seen Steady play at the burrito place and it’s a surprisingly good venue for what’s essentially an low-volume / unplugged-type country rock show.

I’ve written about these guys a few days ago (read it here). Lincoln duo Smith’s Cloud opens at 7 p.m. – yep, it’s early. But the whole thing is free so you’ll have plenty of cash to buy a margarita or a taco. Fun!

Changes at Hi-Fi House; Low Cut Connie tonight…

Category: Blog — Tags: , , — @ 12:37 pm April 17, 2019

Tears of Silver perform at Hi-Fi House back in Oct. 2, 2017.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

A number of people were taken aback when Kate Dussault, the visionary behind the Hi-Fi House, announced via Facebook April 13 that she has relocated to Denver to “chase her dream.”

“Omaha’s Hi-Fi House is now in the capable hands of Jon Ochsner, Mesonjixx (Mary Lawson) and Paul B Allen IV. Please support them and all their efforts!,” she wrote.

The message had some wondering if Dussault had moved on from Hi-Fi altogether. In fact, just the opposite is true. Hi-Fi House may be expanding.

“I’m still 100% dedicated to Hi-Fi House, just working on a different facet of it here,” Dussault said from Denver, adding that she’s still also involved in a few Omaha projects as well “but no more day-to-day work at Hi-Fi. Jon, Mary and Paul have all that handled.”

Those of you scratching your head wondering what I’m talking about, Hi-Fi House is a vinyl record listening room and music aficionado’s dream. Established in 2016, the Hi-Fi House building is located at 3724 Farnam St. in the Blackstone District. In addition to having a huge collection of vinyl and state-of-the-art sound systems for listening to it, HFH conducts a number of community outreach projects.

You can read all about it in this 2017 article I wrote for The Reader, or you can check out their website, which tells you everything you want to know about the project, including how you can become a member.

Philly rocker Low Cut Connie headlines tonight at Reverb Lounge. The band’s keyboard-driven rock is pure FM fodder, and has the distinction of once being listed on President Obama’s Spotify playlist. Stonebelly and Garst open at 9 p.m. $14.

New music: Jason Steady/Chris Twist (Nobunny), tour; Conor flies solo in July; Lavender Country tonight…

Return of the Paisley Angels, Chris Twist and Jason Steady (self-release, 2019)

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Jason Steady announced yesterday that he’s got a new album out with Chris Twist called Return of the Paisley Angels.

Indie/garage-rock aficionados know Twist as a member of Nobunny, The Lemons, Slush and The Cowboys, but did you now that the Chicagoan is originally from Omaha and played with Steady in The Cuterthans, Stolen Kisses and Talking Mountain? You did? Well then…

Together, they’ve crafted an LP’s worth of indie-fied Country & Western tunes that will get your boots scootin’ and your hoodie flappin’. Check out a track or two below and pre-order before the April 24 release.

The album shall not be released to any other streaming/digital services for reasons everyone should be aware of by now,” Steady said. “It will be physically available in limited edition on cassette and CD on all of our tour dates. Mail order of remaining copies available after that. Available straight from the source, and that’s about it.

One of those tour dates is the album release show April 24 at Burrito Envy in Benson. After that, Steady & Twist (Maybe they should call the band Steady Twist or Twist Steady?) will be on the road until the end of May.

* * *

Conor Oberst this morning announced he’s doing a solo tour for a few weeks in July (July 17-28, to be exact). This lands in the middle of his touring with Phoebe Bridgers as Better Oblivion Community Center. No word who will back Conor on this tour.

But joining him as the opener on all dates is singer/songwriter Joanna Sternberg, whose new album, Then I Try Some More, comes out July 5 on Team Love Records. Is Conor still directly associated with that label or is he just doing Nate Krenkel a solid?

* * *

Lavender Country, a.k.a. Patrick Haggerty, the LGBT hero who released a collection of gay radical country songs way back in 1973, returns to The Brothers Lounge tonight. Joining him and his band are Gun Outfit and N.Y. Queer country outfit Paisley Fields. $10, early 8 p.m. show.

RSD 2019; New releases (Unexplained Death, Leafblower); NIght Beats, DROSS, Sun-Less Trio tonight at Slowdown…

The Sun-Less Trio at Reverb Aug. 18, 2017. The band plays tonight at Slowdown, Jr.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

What’d you get on Record Store Day? This is the first year I didn’t go shopping on RSD. It’s not as if there was nothing I wanted (Anyone score that Devo box set? It’s going for $140 today on eBay). I assumed the decline of Omaha record stores (Three closed just this past year, including icons Drastic Plastic and Almost Music) that the interest in RSD was waning, but sure enough, images began showing up on Facebook hours before Homer’s opened Saturday of huge lines outside scrolling around the block, a testament to ongoing interest in this twice-a-year promotion (Black Friday is sort of RSD Pt. 2).

I find that while I listen to more music now than ever before, I listen to vinyl less and less (mainly because I mostly listen to new music). One of my last vinyl purchases was the Red House Painters box set, an old RSD offering — I found an unopened copy on Discogs. Very likely I’ll be buying that Devo box set, too… from Discogs… eventually.

* * *

Speaking of new music, a couple new local releases caught my attention.

First, Matt Whipkey has a new side project called Unexplained Death that’s his take on punk. The first two songs, “Four More Years” b/w “Think For Yourself” (a cover of the Beatles classic) went online a week or so ago. It’s just part of what will likely be an Unexplained Death LP that’ll be released sometime in the near future.

Of course we’re all waiting for Unexplained Death’s first stage appearance.

The other release is a two-song stoner-rock release by Leafblower — “Yes Men” b/w “Still Lazy After All These Beers.” The tunes are available on Spotify now, and will be released as a 7″ later this year by Max Trax Records. Heavy, heavy shit.

* * *

Very cool rock show is happening tonight at Slowdown Jr. — Seattle rock psych-rock band Night Beats (Heavenly Records) headlines with DROSS (members of Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship) and Sun-Less Trio. 8 p.m. start time, $15.

Nightmarathons tonight; Ex Hex, Moaning, Lodgings Saturday; Ghost Foot Sunday…

Category: Blog — Tags: , , , — @ 12:37 pm April 12, 2019

Ex Hex on the Maha Music Festival main stage, 8/15/15. The band returns Saturday at Reverb Lounge.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Winter hasn’t finished with us yet. Weather-wise, another a crappy weekend; show-wise, the selection is limited but pretty good.

Tonight Nightmarathons headline way out west at Dr. Jack’s Drinkery, a place I’ve yet to visit located at 3012 No. 102nd St., which (I think) used to be the old Brass Knocker? Someone help me here. I lived right down the street from there for years when I was in college.

Anyway, the Pittsburgh band plays punk pop/emo with lots o’ group vocals and rock riffs a la The Get Up Kids. Like I said, an emo band. Opening is Omaha pop-punters HeatWaves and Speedball Summer. $8, 9 p.m.

That’s it for Friday, but there are two awesome shows Saturday night.

Mary Timony’s band Ex Hex headlines at Reverb Saturday night. Their new album, It’s Real, just dropped via Merge Records and is a straight-up old-school rock album, or as Pitchfork said in this 7.8 rated review: “This time, they mine the denim-clad AOR of Billy Squier and Foreigner.” Yeah, this sounds very ’80s FM radio rock. Opening is Sub Pop band Moaning, an LA DIY post-punk trio. $18, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Lodgings headlines at The Brothers Lounge. The band has been working on a new record, which they’ll likely preview. Opening is Bed Rest and Relax, It’s Science. $5, 9 p.m.

Finally Sunday night Louisiana band Ghost Foot headlines at The Sydney in Benson. Joining them are Lincoln’s Universe Contest and The Natural States. $5, 10 p.m.

And that’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.

#TBT: That time a decade ago when I wrote for SPIN; Pagan Athletes, Sun Cycles, Matt Whipkey tonight…

Category: Blog — Tags: , , — @ 12:45 pm April 11, 2019

A screen-cap from One of My Kind, the Mystic Valley Band documentary.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

For Throwback Thursday, here’s a link to a SPIN review I wrote 10 years ago yesterday. Conor Oberst was launching his new project, the Mystic Valley Band, and SPIN needed someone to cover the tour launch. It was an easy $100, and I was going to the show anyway.

Over the years I’ve had opportunities to write for other national rags but turned them down, having neither the time nor the interest. Most didn’t pay a dime, offering instead national exposure that I wasn’t seeking. My high school dreams of being a rock ‘n’ roll journalist drifted away when I realized just how expensive full-time gigs like Rolling Stone can be, especially if you have to live in NYC.

From the review:

…Oberst has never looked more content than when he’s playing with the Mystic Valley Band. Still, he’s the kind of guy who never stays in one place — or with one band — for very long. So tell us, Conor, are you in this one for the long run?

Whatever became of the Mystic Valley Band? I get the feeling that Conor could switch that one back on rather quickly if he wanted to. It never reached the heights of his other projects, though it apparently produced a concert film called One of My Kind, shot by Philip Schaffart, which I’ve never seen and I don’t believe was ever screened here. Well, you can now watch it in its entirety on YouTube, below:

* * *

A trio of shows are happening tonight:

I list Pagan Athletes first though the duo is actually opening for a Salt Lake City band called Ugly Boys at Reverb Lounge tonight. I don’t know a thing about Ugly Boys, but I can tell you Pagan Athletes is a head trip worth checking out. Also on the bill is Omaha rock ‘n’ roll start-up Garst. $10, 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, down at Slowdown Jr., a new project by Jessica Hottman of The Hottman Sisters is launching called Sun Cycles. According to the listing, “Steeped in deep synth, big drums, and soaring vocals – the act pulls inspiration from artists like Imogen Heap, Lorn, and Stevie Nicks.” Kethro opens at 8 p.m. $12.

Finally a trio of singer/songwriters are lighting up the stage at the Down Under tonight: Matt Whipkey Chris Koza and Scott Severin. This one starts at 9:30 and there’s no cover.

Outer Spaces gets Document(ed); Blac Rabbit, Those Far Out Arrows tonight…

Outer Spaces at Milk Run, June 24, 2016. The band has a new single coming out on Saddle Creek Records.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Back in June 2016, I got a chance to see Baltimore band Outer Spaces at the now defunct Milk Run with a handful of other fans. The band had just released its debut LP, A Shedding Snake, on Don Giovanni Records, which ended up being one of my favorites that year.

This morning Saddle Creek Records announced that Outer Spaces will be receiving the “Document Series” treatment — i.e, the release of a 7-inch single, “Teapot” b/w “Children Love to Run” May 3.

Check out the A-side below and order your copy at the Saddle Creek Store.

* * *

Rockaway Beach, NY, psych-rock band Blac Rabbit headlines tonight at Slowdown Jr. The 5-piece is led by identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor. They say their sound is influenced by The Beatles (what band’s isn’t?), and have covered Beatles tunes in the past, most notably at an event alongside Yoko Ono and Ringo Starr. But forget about the covers. The band’s original material is the reason to go see them tonight. Plus you get an opening set by our very own Those Far Out Arrows, who no doubt will be rolling out some new material. 8 p.m., $12.
