Lifter Puller Catalog Now Available Digitally, Streaming on Spinner

December 3, 2009 Artist News No Comments

Minneapolis rock band Lifter Puller, sometimes referred to as the last band before the internet, is rounding out the year by finally catching up with the times.  This week, the band which featured Craig Finn and Tad Kubler from The Hold Steady digitally released deluxe editions of their entire catalog, and all five releases are currently streaming on AOL Spinner.  If you’re worried that your memory of the Lifter Puller discography may be off, fear not; one of those five releases is a new compilation titled Slips Backwards, which is composed of 17 tracks of singles, non-album tracks, and two live recordings from D.C.’s Black Cat in 2000 – one of the band’s final shows.

Their eponymous debut is available digitally for the first time, while their sophomore LP, Half Dead And Dynamite, gets the Deluxe Reissue treatment, featuring live versions of tracks from a 1998 performance at Minneapolis’ iconic venue 7th St. Entry.  The band’s only EP, The Entertainment And Arts (Deluxe Reissue), also includes live bonus tracks from the same 7th Street gig.  Fiestas & Fiascos (Deluxe Reissue) was Lifter Puller’s Frenchkiss debut and last studio album, and the reissue features six live cuts from the band’s reunion shows at Minneapolis’ Triple Rock in June of 2003. Lifter Puller also just released a small run of a book, titled Lifter Puller Vs. The End Of, which contains photos, lyrics, and an oral history of the band.  The book was put together by the band with help from Jessica Hopper (Girls Guide To Rocking) and Minneapolis graphic designer Jason Miller.

HEAVY METAL IN BAGHDAD: THE STORY OF ACRASSICAUDA BOOK IN STORES NOW ON VICE/MTV BOOKS

For the past six years, VICE has documented the story of Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda in their struggle to stay alive and continue the band while enduring the disintegration of their own country throughout the war.

On March 9th 2010, VICE Records will release their debut EP Only The Dead See The End Of The War, recorded in 2009 following their final relocation to the US.  Produced by Alex Skolnick of Testament and mixed by engineer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Hatebreed, System of a Down), Acrassicauda’s four song debut explodes with ferocious war metal.

Also in stores now is the inspirational book, Heavy Metal in Baghdad: The Story of Acrassicauda (VICE/MTV Books).  Expanding on the internationally acclaimed, award-winning VBS.TV/VICE Films documentary produced and directed by Suroosh Alvi and Eddy Moretti, VICE editors Andy Capper and Gabi Sifre extensively cover the history of Acrassicauda, beginning at their youth in Iraq and culminating in their eventual relocation to the US in 2008.  Featuring never-before-seen photographs, set lists, posters, and flyers, the book tells the real story of life during wartime in Baghdad.

Neon Indian Drops Not One, But Two Remixes of Grizzly Bear’s “Cheerleader”

November 30, 2009 Artist News No Comments

Neon Indian gave us something to be thankful for last week when he released not one, but two brand new remixes of the Grizzly Bear fave, “Cheerleader.”  The first one, aptly titled “Sega Genesis P-Orridge” mix, bathes the track in poppy synthy goodness, while the second mix, “Studio 6669” Remix, offers a more laid back approach.  Stream the Pitchfork-premiered tracks here, and if you’re in New York, you’re lucky enough to have 3 chances to catch the band around town this December.
