MYTY KONKEROR CONTRIBUTES UNRELEASED "KEY OF CAESAR" TO FRIENDS FOR EQUALITY FUNDRAISING COMP

Rather than get mired in post-election blues, our friends at UK-based Fox Food Records decided to take action by putting together a compilation of previously unreleased songs by artists and bands from around the globe in order to support some vital civil rights causes. The proceeds from this digital comp will be split evenly and donated to three organizations: Planned Parenthood, American Civil Liberties Union, and the Southern Poverty Law Center. When we learned about this project, we were excited to be part of it by donating a previously unreleased song by Myty Konkeror called "Key of Caesar." It's one of our favorite MK tunes ever recorded and the first featuring Jon on lead vox.

Friends for Equality is an epic compilation of over 40 brilliant songs for which I'm grateful for turning me on to the likes of Good Good BloodHand HabitsJohn Andrews & The YawnsHenohenoThe PridsSpartan Jet-PlexChris Harford & The Band of ChangesHenry DemosG Lucas CraneThe Blank TapesFair MothersThe Sunken Lanes and many, many more. Please follow the link below and dig in!

RIVENER'S "SVENGALI GAZE" AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

We are thrilled to announce a new release from Rivener, a three-songer, that sits somewhere between EP and LP, in terms of its length. As they did on last year's Fires in Repose, they continue to improvise shape-shifting explorations of no wave, noise, psych-folk and rock, though this batch of songs finds them in a more contemplative, meditative mood. 

 Svengali Gaze will be available on limited edition handmade cassette, CD-R (50 each), and digital on October 28th, with both physical formats featuring a live bonus track from last year's Elm City Noise Fest. It can be can pre-ordered on CD/CS/DL here.

Rivener also has a couple shows coming up this fall to support their latest effort...

TWIN LAKES & FRIENDS CELEBRATE WILLIE NELSON AT CAFE NINE, NEW HAVEN

Tomorrow night at Cafe Nine in New Haven, Twin Lakes Records and friends will celebrate the man, the myth and legend of song, Willie Nelson. On the bill are local treasures from the Greater New Haven area: Bop Tweedy, Frank Critelli, Dave Hogan, Rivener (Paul Belbusti/Michael Kiefer) & Lys Guillorn, Kelly Kancyr, No Line North, Olive Tiger (solo), The Sawtelles, and Xavier Serrano (Kindred Queer) will all be there, playing their interpretations of the classics, deep cuts and hidden gems from his extensive songbook

We all know the hits, but Willie's songbook goes DEEP. I didn't realize how deep and what an amazing talent he was until Jon from No Line North approached me with the idea of putting this show together. Once I started really listening, I got hooked. Willie just turned 83 last month. We've seen enough tough losses this year, so let's celebrate life and that of a living legend! This is a benefit concert with all proceeds going to the CT Food Bank. The New Haven Independent just published a story about it, and you can check the flyer for details...it's gonna be a hoot!

MYTY KONKEROR RETURNS UNDER A NEW MONIKER AT THE WOBBLING ROOF REVUE

Myty Konkeror had been on its longest hiatus since it inception until last month when the three of us decided to get together over the holidays for our first jam in over two years. We went into the studio with no plan other than playing what felt good and true and rediscovering the feeling that made playing together so compelling in the first place. We thought things would be more interesting if we used instruments we never incorporated into MK's sound: electric mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar, and an array of effects pedals. We're really excited about the results, which were three completely improvised jams that represent a new direction for us. So much so, we'll be releasing these songs under a new moniker--More Klementines. And we'll be performing these songs (or ones like 'em) for the first time in front of an audience on March 4th at the Wobbling Roof Revue in New Haven, CT at Never Ending Books. This variety concert series was expertly curated by Mercy Choir/Rivener's Paul Belbusti and Lys Guillorn and will be held every Friday night in March at 8:00, and it's sure to be a blast. Hope to see you there!   --Kiefer
