Furni Lowtop Moccasins: Tradition with a Twist

by Accidental Bear

selectism - Furni Lowtop Moccasins

Furni continues to play with traditional Canadian footwear this summer. You might remember their fine attempts to “Rock the Moc,” in the form of two “Rockassins.” The Canadian design firm is keeping things a touch simpler this go round, offering two lowtop mocs – one in caramel and one in black – both traditionally constructed.

Furni is taking orders for these beauties through August 4, 2011.

Band Watch: Dengue Fever; Cambodian Psychedelic Pop Rock

by Accidental Bear

(via NPR)

Cambodia-inspired rock band Dengue Fever is on tour in support of its new album, Cannibal Courtship. In this Live Friday concert, the group will perform at World Cafe Live at the Queen, XPN’s brand new music venue in Wilmington, Del.

Brothers Zac and Ethan Holzman, both loves of vintage Cambodian pop music, formed Dengue Fever in 2001 after a chance meeting with Ch’hom Nimol, an esteemed Cambodian singer who stems from a family of wedding singers and who moved to Long Beach from Cambodia in 2000. Specializing in Khmer Rock (a mix of Cambodian Khmer style and psychedelic pop-rock), Dengue Fever started out as a Camboidan pop cover band. But as the group grew into a dynamic six-piece band featuring saxophone, bass, drums, guitar, farfisa and vocals, it developed into an intriguing hybrid of eastern and western styles.

Cyndi Lauper Cheers Up the Stranded at Airport

by Accidental Bear

Wouldn’t it be amazing if anytime you were stuck in a sticky situation like long lines at Safeway or the post office or perhaps stuck in traffic that a super star musical icon would show up. I imagine sitting there at DMV with number 98 in my hand and they are still calling out the something teens, when all of the sudden Cyndil Lauper drops from the sky and sings to me True Colors. With events like that people wouldn;t need to do hard drugs anymore to soften the pain of “life”.

Cyndi

“Cyndi Lauper is proving that she can still have fun!

Over the weekend, the 80s pop star, dressed in dark sunglasses and a headdress, grabbed a PA microphone at Jorge Newbery Airport in Buenos Aires and performed her hit song “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.”

Her impromptu singing was reportedly in an effort to help airport staff calm the delayed passengers. The performance seemed to do just that as fans gathered around Lauper singing, smiling and snapping photos. “www.etonline.com

Post-Hardcore; Northless from Milwaukee ( Beef Watch)

by Accidental Bear

If you’re in the mood to “touch your dark side” take a peek at Northless. Artistic misunderstood wonderful noise. Northless’s new album will be out in March. I say grab it and PET YOUR DARK SIDE!

—————————————————–

Song Premiere: Northless, ‘Clandestine Abuse’

What’s it like to be huge? I’m talkin’ woolly-mammoth-riding-a-humpback-whale-through-Stonehenge huge. I’m talkin’ the kind of mass that overwhelms in the nearly literal sense: to “defeat completely.” The Milwaukeesludge-metal band Northless comes about damn close to this hugeness, as far as I can tell, on its debut albumClandestine Abuse.

The riff that launches the title track is one of those Elephants Marching riffs that the folks at MetalSucks (and I) enjoy so much. It tramples in slow motion, but also levitates in the midst of a crushing melody, akin to the ’90s post-hardcore heroes in Quicksand. The surprise of the song comes at 2:23 with some clean, technical guitar that’s less bulky math-metal and more like Faraquet’s dizzying arrhythmic riffing. But, in spite of one less distorted guitar, Northless is still overwhelmingly heavy, a woolly mammoth in search of its humpback whale.

Clandestine Abuse comes out March 15. You can pre-order the album at Gilead Media.
