    Mixed by Nathaniel Jay (Pitch It Down – New York)

    TRACKLISTING: Adultnapper was scheduled for this session but couldn’t make it last minute so we bribed Nathaniel Jay with some beer and as is his want, he stepped up and played triumphantly for 4 hours straight. Of course, the track list was kind of a casualty… Here’s what he gave us… good luck with that…

  • NEWS: RECORD SHOP OUT OF SIGHT

    news_recordshopoutofsight

    By Ben Sisario – NY Times

    It was Wednesday at Downtown 161, and that meant it was Vinylmania day.

    Most of the time Downtown 161, a record distributor in Lower Manhattan, is off limits to the public. But once a week it becomes an unusual kind of record store for friends of Vinylmania, a Greenwich Village shop that closed in 2007. Customers run their hands over items in fancy packaging, chat with the seller and brag about their collections — all the typical stuff that grows more endangered every time another store closes.

  • REVIEW: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND

    reviews_velvetundergroundbook

    By Fact Magazine

    In November 2009 Rizzoli will publish The Velvet Underground: A New York Art, the first ever monograph devoted to a rock band.

    Guided and in some ways created by their mentor and collaborator Andy Warhol, The Velvets were artwork as much as artists. They were the first act to explicitly merge pop culture and the fine arts, collapsing the border between “high” and “low” forms of entertainment. It wasn’t just about the music and the lyrics but the way they were presented: the sleeve designs, the performances, the photographs, and everything else besides. A New York Art celebrates the band’s far-reaching, multi-disciplinary creative vision.

  • NEWS: LET’S GO TO THE CASSETTE

    By Amos Barshad – NewYork Magazine

    A Brooklyn label so retro it releases cassettes.

    You have not heard the bands distributed by local independent record label Woodsist—home to such acts as Ganglians, Blank Dogs, and Psychedelic Horseshit—in that new iPod commercial. David Bowie and David Byrne have not become backstage fixtures at their shows. Pharrell, to date, has no interest in remixing their music. This is not that kind of Brooklyn-indie-rock success story.

  • NEWS: CLAYTON PATTERSON PHOTO

    By Poe – Freshness Magazine

    One point in the not so distant past, Lower East Side was not known for its hipsters’ dive bars nor epicurean’s gathering place.  One point in the not so distant past, Lower East Side was a den of criminals, of social rejects, of those down on their luck.  From its gritty past to the happening present, a photographer was there to documented all – Clinton Patterson, the unofficial historian of this little neighborhood between SoHo and East River. To showcase his extensive portfolio over the past 30 years, ALIFE’s newest venture, ALIFE Presents, along with Kinz + Tillou Fine Art, curated Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured – Photographs, a photo retrospective on the his works and the rapid alterations Lower East Side underwent. [Read More]

  • NEWS: CHEATING CHINA TOWN

    By Michael Martin – NY Press

    Many Chinese workers who usually depend on the help of a close-knit community are also suffering due to the economy.

    Unemployed restaurant deliveryman Jianhua Wang says there’s no help left for him in New York’s Chinatown. Not in this economic climate. “Chinatown is full of compatriots,” he says, “but there are many cheaters.” [Read More]
