FWY! (Art Museums/Teenage Panzerkorps) releases new cassette tape

San Francisco musician Edmund Xavier has released a new EP entitled San Clemente under his moniker FWY! The EP is available on cassette tape through Moon Glyph Records, and it's also available for digital download through FWY!'s Bandcamp page. Named after the southern California beach town, San Clemente is a healthy offering of ambient tracks audibly intended for moments on the open road with stretches of long highway ahead. Some of Xavier's other projects include the now-defunct Art Museums and Teenage Panzerkorps (DER TPK) .

The Art Museums broke up

Judging by the above Facebook comment, it appears that local synth-pop band The Art Museums have broken up, just on the heels of releasing a new 7" on Slumberland Records. DANCING EP by ART MUSEUMS The band left behind some great songs and were really fun at the recent Slumberland show at Popfest, and we'll definitely keep you posted on future endeavors. If you were counting on seeing The Art Museums at the Woodsist Festival, know that they have been replaced by The Mantles.

SF Popfest 2011: Slumberland Records showcase @ Rickshaw Stop, 5/28/11

Saturday night's Slumberland Records showcase at the Rickshaw Stop was a mini-festival within SF Popfest 2011, like a set of Russian nesting dolls, or like something that's a smaller thing within a similar but larger thing other than a set of Russian nesting dolls. Promising ten bands in eight hours, the show offered prospective attendees a sampling of one of indie's most vital labels, but I'll confess to harboring a little bit of fear about the undertaking too. With a genre like indie pop, which often, and not altogether unfairly, gets derided as a little samey, one could imagine a [...]

Originally dropped from her previous insurance because of the cancer diagnosis, Kelly has had no chance of [...]

The Art Museums sign to Woodsist

The Art Museums - "Sculpture Gardens" Josh Alper (of Whysp and many other projects) and Glenn Donaldson (of Skygreen Leopards and similarly many other projects) have teamed up as The Art Museums. The band recently signed to Woodsist to release their debut album Rough Trade next year. There's a strong 80s British rock thread throughout the songs on their MySpace page, which has a Television Personalities geek like myself particularly exited.
