Can't help but wonder if THIS inspired THAT

"These human towers, or castells in Catalan, have become a symbol of Catalonia, a region in northeastern Spain vying for greater autonomy." ~ MEAGHAN BEATLEY, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, 10 OCTOBER 2017

Perhaps this was the inspiration for Tracy Shedd's music video by Canadian filmmaker - Jesse Ewles (Yules) - for her track "Encourage Me," from the Fort Lowell Records compilation album, Luz de Vida. Watch the video here, and you decide:

YOUNG MOTHERS KEEP ON TRUCKIN' (AND ROCKIN')

Not sure if you all picked up on this, but Young Mothers are back in business and making music again!  Young Mothers were the very first band that we released a record for - their single "Come On, The Cross."  Since, they have released a number of recordings on their own, before taking a bit of a break.  But we are happy to share that if you live in Arizona, you can see 'em again in action!

Check out their website for current information, concert dates, and new recordings:

Listen to their Fort Lowell Records release here:


Listen to their latest release here:

YOUNG MOTHERS
Back from the dead and with far too much on their minds, Young Mothers returns with “They Were Right”, a sunny-sounding rumination on the stupidity of consumer capitalism, depression-fueled isolation, and analysis-paralysis. The Phoenix, AZ group has a pedigree of sorts- songwriter Zach Toporek is an erstwhile member of The Through & Through Gospel Review and Diners; drummer Jason Roedl is formerly of Mergence notoriety; bassist Jess Pruitt plays in The Bittersweet Way and was previously a member of Field Trip. Together, they perform Toporek’s clever and accessible pop songs with obvious enthusiasm and hardly any cool.

NOW HEAR THIS: NEW MUSIC FROM MOYAMOYA

Alright people of the world wide web... here we go again! Another awesome Digital 45 from those instrumental rockin' rollin' boys down in ol' Jacksonville FL - moyamoya - for their track "I Heart Jet Noise."  Listen to it here:




ORDER NOW!

Florida-based post-rock purveyors, moyamoya, have released the digital 45 "I Heart Jet Noise" - the third of three on Fort Lowell Records since their full-length debut in 2014. The ominous and wandering track is moyamoya at their finest - a perpetual balancing act of musical movements merging, at times brash and belligerent, at others meticulous and measured. In the brief 5 minute track, from the haunted number-station-esgue intro to the break-beat inspired conclusion, the band mutate the motif multiple times, making the journey seem longer than the listen.

And to extend that journey, Jacksonville hip-hop hero, Willie Evans Jr, provides the "Chem-trail Mix" - seizing on the final movement of the original track but, up-tempo and beat-forward, to create a remix in his own head-bobbing image.

The 3 digital 45s are available online at most streaming platforms however, a physical-format will be released via cassette tape later this fall. moyamoya's "I Heart Jet Noise" along with "Ded Mel 25" and "Baracus" will comprise side A while side B will feature a remix of each song provided by Willie Evans Jr as well as Navigateur (Ded Mel 25) and Keith William of WakeATL (Baracus). The tape will be available at the coming moyamoya show: Raindogs on Oct 19th with Twin Ponies and Loose Eels.
