This past Sunday the instrumental genius that is Balmorhea stopped by Russian Recording for a show with Dust From 1000 Years and Brother John. Photog Julia Rickles captured the evening and now I share what she saw with you. As an added bonus, I have included the live set from Brother John, a 13-piece orchestra that 3 weeks and 2 practices ago didn’t exist. Remarkably, this was their first ever actual show with this lineup.
Vampire rocked the IU Auditorium on Monday with a little help from Beach House and Dum Dum Girls. We sent Chelsea Sanders and Julia Rickles out to cover the campus madness.

If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or have ever had a conversation with me, you know that I am somewhat of a fan of Austin instrumental ensemble Balmorhea. They are gifted musicians creating incredibly beautiful compositions that resonate on a level I can’t even comprehend. Now you can read these words and consider it mere hyperbole, but I leave you instead with exhibit A, Balmorhea’s live set from their show this past weekend at Russian Recording.
Take a listen while you work or study or what have you and when you are finished, surf on over here, here, or here and pick up an album or two. Better yet, run down to your local record emporium so you feel that sweet, sweet vinyl in your hands. You will thank me later.
This week we had a little back-to-back visit from Wavves and No Age. It was two nights of great music and kids having first-show joygasms. We sent Julia Rickles and Taylor Swaim to capture the moment. Click the pics to see their galleries.
