Israel Nash Brooklyn Bowl 4-13-14

The Name Game: There have been a number of musician and band name changes recently.  As I noted yesterday, Israel Nash Gripka is now just Israel Nash (that’s a picture of him taken at last night’s short but wonderful set at Brooklyn Bowl).  Sydney Wayser is now performing under the name Clara-Nova and Harper Blynn has become Mosco Rosco.  As the song Istanbul (Not Constantinople) goes “Why’d they change it? I can’t say.”

Leslie Mendelson Glyn Johns 2014

Records in the works: Leslie Mendelson is currently recording a new album in the UK with Glyn Johns producing.  Secret Someones just finished tracking their first full length record.  And Misty Boyce is in the midst of a Pledge Music drive to raise the money to finish the record she has been putting together since late last year.

JandR logo 300J&R Gone: As you’ve probably read by now, J&R, formerly J&R Music World Computer World closed its doors for good last Wednesday, April 9th.

Tony Scherr

Last Minute Changes to tonight’s shows: Jim Campilongo‘s show at The Rockwood Music Hall has been canceled.  Tony Scherr‘s show there will consist of Tony, Tony’s brother Pete and Anton Fier.

The Mastersons

It’s been a while since The Mastersons‘ last record, Birds Fly South was released.  So Chris and Eleanor  are recording a new record in Los Angeles.  They have already been joined by Greg Leisz on pedal steel and Harper Blynn on vocals.  Jim Scott is producing, editing and mixing this one.

Sad Bastards of Brooklyn Cover

If you follow Now I’ve Heard Everything regularly, you know that Charlene McPherson and Mo Goldner of Spanking Charlene will step away from that band from time to time to perform as a voice and acoustic guitar duo, The Sad Bastards of Brooklyn.  The first SBB album (that’s it pictured above) will be released on January 21, 2014 and there will be a Sad Bastards of Brooklyn album release show at The Sidewalk Cafe on January 24th.

Rough Trade NYC

Rough Trade, the new record store and music venue, stopped their live shows after last weekend’s performances by Television.  There were noise complaints from the neighbors and Rough Trade trade is undertaking sound proofing work to fix that problem.  Most of shows scheduled there for the rest of December have been canceled or moved to another venue.


Music Video: Sara Bareilles and Harper Blynn – Blood Bank (Live)

Sara Bareilles Harper Blynn Blood Bank

Harper Blynn opened for Sara Bareilles this past week at Radio City Music Hall, and has been opening for her on much of Sara’s current tour.   Here’s a video taken several weeks ago in Tulsa when Pete Harper and J. Blynn joined Sara to cover this Bon Iver song.  Sounds pretty good to me.


Music Video: Harper Blynn – Go

Harper Blynn Merc5

Longtime Now I’ve Heard Everything favorites Harper Blynn have been working on a new album for a while now.  Although it probably won’t be released until 2014, we now have a video, and a lyric video at that, of a song from that forthcoming album.  The new song is simply titled Go.  Harper Blynn will be in town this Wednesday, opening for Sara Bareilles at Radio City Music Hall.

News on the recording front:

NIHE N Logo 2012Harper Blynn have posted a YouTube teaser video for their apparently soon to be released album. It consists of the intro to a new song, apparently titled Go.  I’m sure we’ll learn more about the new record between now and the next time Harper Blynn hit NYC, which is October 4th.
NIHE N Logo 2012Jay Stolar will be be releasing his first album soon.  There will be a fund raiser (using Kickstarter, Pledge Music, Indiegogo or the like) to get that to happen.

NIHE N Logo 2012Misty Boyce will also be doing a fund raiser for her next album, the full length follow up to her self-titled record released in 2010.  Misty is planning to record in the UK with producer David Lynch (who is not the director of Twin Peaks).
