Aidan Baker and Nadja Profiled

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Aidan Baker likes to keep busy. Or rather, whether or not he likes it, he’s the kind of artist whose output is so frequent—and so consistently engaging—that words like “prolific” fall short. Baker’s main musical project, Nadja, an experimental doom act in which he’s joined by his long-term partner Leah Buckareff, have just released their latest LP, Sonnborner. It’s the group’s 20th album and, like most of their recent output, it’s being released via their label, Broken Spine Productions.

5049 Records Podcast Episode 176 – Brandon Seabrook 

Source: 5049 Records.

Today is a good one. Originally from Massachusetts, trained at the New England Conservatory and based in Brooklyn for the last fifteen years, Brandon Seabrook is a true original. Equally adept at the electric guitar as he is at the banjo, his playing is intense, complex, intricate and completely over the top. He’s worked closely with artists such as Peter Evans, Jessica Pavone, Anthony Braxton, Nels Cline, Cooper-Moore and Mary Halvorson. He leads his own bands, Die Trommel Fatale, Seabrook Power Plant, Needle Driver and most recently, the Brandon Seabrook Trio featuring Daniel Levin on cello, and Henry Fraser on bass. Brandon is deeply funny and original cat. We need more Brandon Seabrooks.
