Kendl Winter – “Shades of Green”
Fresh off a year of constant touring, Kendl Winter recorded The Mechanics of Hovering Flight , a record burrowed in country tradition, organic folk, and the upbeat twang of bluegrass. Kendl’s fascination with the hummingbird’s contradiction of motionless and flight comes to the fore in these recordings of dreams and stories.
You can listen to the first single off of Kendl’s new album – “Shades of Green”
A Week With Jeremy Jay
Before embarking on his U.S. tour, Jeremy Jay and his band (George & Nick) spent a week practicing at Dub Narcotic Studio, which is located beneath the K office. During a practice break, Jeremy (left), George (center) and Nick (right) sat down and had a conversation with Danielle (our promotions director), Eric (our intern), and Joel (our mailorder wizard). The conversation was hilarious–here’s a little out-take. Click the link on the bottom to read the whole interview
Danielle: You’re playing in Mexico City?
Danielle: Didn’t you pick that show up kind of last minute?
Jeremy: Yeah, two weeks ago. Apparently you’re not supposed to brush your teeth or drink the water or take a shower.
Danielle: You can take a shower, just don’t open your mouth….

Then (same night) we all went bowling together, the whole K staff. And there are pictures, nerdy pictures, of us all going for it. It’s in a separate blog post. On our website.
Calvin Johnon & the K gang make bowling history. Get to know us better! http://krecs.com/uncategorized/k-team-goes-bowling/
Phil Elverum‘s first K release in ten years, Mount Eerie’s Distorted Cymbals Dub Narcotic Disco Plate 7″ is a clattering evocation of Phil’s stormy side. Selector Dub Narcotic lays down melodica over a spacious remix on the B-side. Buy it here!
“Phil’s voice still rings out like he’s sharing some mystical truth he divined while sitting by a foggy lakeside.” -Stereogum
The Pine Hill Haints will be hitting the road next week, travelling mostly around the southeast of the United States. Check out the dates below! All of our dates (including these) are listed with additional info on our website… http://krecs.com/shows/
“Normally when a reviewer says a band “does not let any genre define them,” they mean simply that no single genre properly describes the band. When I say it with regard to the Pine Hill Haints…it means that the Haints have managed to weld a recognizable style from these genres with the style and precision of a band with a much larger profile.” -Pitchfork
2/13/12 – Ft. Wayne, IN @ The Brass Rail
2/14/12 – Chattanooga, TN @ Sluggo’s North
Until Next Time…
