meanwhile, at cake shop...

the Crayons (above), Telecosmic, and Rainbow Party (download butt jamz now.) opened for Every Bunny Welcome (below) at Cake Shop the other night. pretty rad.


also, Axel took a bunch of pictures of his penis with my camera and this is Alec with a moustache:

please try and contain yourself. MAINTAIN, PEOPLE. now stop looking at that and look at some video from Rainbow Party's set. at the end you get to see Sydney picking his earwax!!!!



the next day E.B.W. played at a coffee house in Flemington, NJ. Axel was there again but we forgot the camera so there are no updated pictures of his boyparts. also, there was a band there that sounded like a Jerry Garcia tribute band and blew nuts. i really hate Flemington.

anyway. look out for this upcoming Crayons record. it seems a bunch of you have copies of the unmixed songs already and the only thing i have to say is LISTEN! it'll all be louder soon, i promise! it's intentionally peaking at -3dB! also, Tom Blacklung & the Smokestacks recorded a demo here that i've got to make sound pretty before it's up here. look for a big update around Aug 1st with lots of music.

until then, save the moustache picture as your desktop background but make sure not to look the bunny in the eye or you'll turn into a camel with three humps or in some rare cases, four.

HELLO!

greetings from the beautiful state of north carolina (!)... been chillin here for a few days and staying for a few more meeting good people, seeing old friends and digging on the big sky. seriously -- it's so fucking huge here. it's a little different from north jersey, let me tell you.

drove down here with the bunny in his mom's prius (trying to avoid getting raped by the gas prices) after finishing up the tracking to Sex Reduction Flower (see post below) and when i get back we're mixing it all (adding the low end back into the sound... something missing from bleenex in my opinion... making it lo-fi when necessary and hi-fi when necessary and trying to get the songs across sonically) and then we're sending it off for mastering. once again, the whole thing will available on here for FREE for about a week near the date of the release show --- check up on info on that here (suckin all you in to the tamur world... get addicted, son!)

anyhow. if y'all get a chance, check out this state. it's nice here. see y'all in jersey.

SEX REDUCTION FLOWER

is a new album by Le Rug (above) recorded and mixed at 1331 by myself and Ray (motherfucker moved in!)

we're just about finished tracking the record and sending it off for mastering in a little over a week (if all goes to plan)

the follow-up to Bleenex includes fully realized versions of songs from C.R.E.E.P. and overall has more of a yes-this-is-a-real-band vibe than a ray-sitting-at-home-alone-and-sad-recording-every-instrument-himself vibe, thanks to Matt Gaffney on drums, Max Kagan doing some guitar, Conor Meara (ex-Canaries...that's me), and contributions from Every Bunny Welcome, Joe Plourde (Tom Blacklung & the Smokestacks,) Gabby Smith (Eskimeaux) and perhaps most exciting, Paul Marotta (from electric eels (pictured below - far right), Mirrors + the Styrenes,) and some maybe some other surprises.
SEX REDUCTION FLOWER is due out the first week of August at our record release show (tentative date: August 8th or 9th) where we'll be playing with a surprise reunion opening act + others TBA. the whole album will also be available for FREE for a week following the release show.

IN CASE YOU MISSED THAT:: THE WHOLE ALBUM WILL BE AVAILABLE FO ***FREE*** FOR A WEEK FOLLOWING THE RELEASE SHOW.

tell your friends. get HYPED. peace.

p.s. the album includes a bangin cover of Godstar by Psychic TV. Check it:

Tom Blacklung & the Smokestacks

have got demos. available at their upcoming shows

get ready for an EP mixed by yours truly (if the offer's still on the table)

38 albums

in one night. that's 38 posts to this newfangled blog. of course this is a perfect time (on the 39th) to talk about the amount of faith i have in every artist who has contributed anything to this collective: a lot. period. a lot.

there's some new albums up here, a lot of old albums with some new commentary, and some new pictures and things. it's a new hierarchy, a new system of management, of file organization, of general presentation. this, my friends, is the new home of tamur.records. welcome, listen, hearmusic, get revolution, and most importantly? DANCE.

like always, everything on here is for free download courtesy the artists who have sent me music and who are my friends and who continue to make new music every day and contribute new things to what we call "tamur.records," a funny "record label" that exists on its own terms with no expectations and very few fans.

hopefully this huge update will carry you all through most of the summer and of course more things are in progress and soon to be released (a new le rug album, new every bunny welcome EP with ray weiss on drums, tom blacklung and the smokestacks' new record (joe plourde, ex-canaries, 's new group.) lots of things coming, lots of things being made even though, yes, we are all moving (geographically) away from eachother. i'll keep this up as i have for at least 4 years and hopefully y'all will still listen. there'll also be updates from eskimeaux, hopefully alec, and perhaps some others. we'll also let you know here about shows coming up so y'all can get out and support tamur artists live.

submarines, dying birds, and a hell of a lot of hope (on that note, p.s., vote for barack.)

sincerely (without wax,)

this shit is so fucking good. a CAW! discography! holy fuck!


CAW! was a band from the old faux fetus scene. Ben Schurr (bass) went on to start Br'er and also has mastering credit on the Canaries' "Poke the Machine" full-length. Dan Angel (drums) now plays drums with Curt (father of faux fetus, previously drummer for Chamomile, another amazing philly band) and gang in a new(er) band called Ugh God. hard to follow? sorry about that... it's all so fucking incestuous on this eastern corridor but shit you not, these are all great musicians. there was also a guy named Sean Finan who i've never met and apparently hates everyone. he played guitar. he was fucking awesome. check out this live video of CAW!:
