From Russia Beyond The Headlines:

This is the second installment of Leo Fest in Russia. This year, it will include musicians from Siberia and the Russian North, along with saxophonist Sergei Letov and multi-instrumentalist Sergei Starostin—both of whom are stars of the genre. As part of the festival, Leo Feigin will personally present a film series entitled “New Music from Russia.” Some of the musicians are already well-known, while some have yet to be discovered. Feigin promises everything except the ordinary: “Expect the unexpected!”

Mary Halvorson Interview

111031-Thirteenth Assembly--JT-06

From 5049 Records:

Mary Halvorson is a brilliant and endearing musician who has been making a name for herself, around the world, for the past eleven years. In supporting roles she has worked in the bands of Anthony Braxton, Marc Ribot and Matthew Welch and her own projects range from intimate songs for viola and guitar with Jessica Pavone to disjointed and fucked up rock songs with her band People. She has received a tremendous amount of acclaim for her trio and quintet projects and for this episode we trace her steps as a musician, talk about getting trouble in Brooklyn and about her upcoming solo guitar project among many other things.

Ahleuchatistas follow up their 2013 USA tour opening for Buke and Gase with an appearance at the Hopscotch Music Festival and several US dates. After pushing the limits of musical expression to its far flung edges for over 5 years, touring the world with gusto, harnessing the forces of nature, and honing the telepathy between artist and audience, guitarist Shane Perlowin and drummer Ryan Oslance take the fire on the road. Ahleuchatistas has received critical acclaim for their 2012 album Heads Full of Poison (Cuneiform Records/Harvest Recordings).
