With their second LP due for release in t-minus 21 days, Tally Ho thought it was as good a time as any to hassle Patrick Flegel, guitarist and main vocalist with Canada's premier art rockers Women.
From previous interviews, it seems the four of you all got involved inthe writing process for the first record, is this still the case or has one member emerged as the 'main' songwriter?

The band consists of Andrew McFarland(drums), William Kennedy(keys, glockenspiel), Parks Miller(bass), and Addison Adams(vocals, guitar) are influenced by anything from African traditional music to American hardcore.
Live they like to rearrange their songs, changing speeds and parts culminating in one epic coherrent piece. Much like an episdoe of Lost that had a meaning.

Sunspots is the brand new real world incarnation of Georgian Will Weber's bedroom recording project.
Influenced in it's tiered complexities by anything from the Flaming Lips, The Who and Dr. Dog to more recent envied experimentalists Animal Collective and Oberhofer. This track Special Secrets is so good, we'd like to keep it as just that. Locked up in the Tally Ho vault for our own listening.
But with Will describing the music thus...' The feeling of the songs is very grounded in a love for a nice psychedelic romp outside with your best friends', it's probably best we let this one out, I mean i love a psychedelic romp as much as the next man

If only Jamie harley could provide some kind of woozy video reel for my everyday life, it would probably be alot more interesting and i might have more friends....
Anyway, anyone who was at the recent Memoryhouse, How to Dress Well, Visons of Tree's and Prizes show at the Social that the genius Parisian (sometime Londener) provided visuals for will testify to his talent in turning the mundane into the sublime.
His new video for ANR's 'Endless Field of Mercury' captures for me that moment when laughter can turn to tears at any moment. Much like tuning into a channel Five documentary called ' The Whale with No Mouth' and realising it's for real

We were look enough to get a sneak viewing of this one while James Benson (Frat Dad) was over studying in the UK a few months ago. The comedy short focuses on a young punk rock band from New Jersey who by coincidence happen to play Frat Dad songs and also features Real Estate, Liam The Younger and Julian Lynch among others on the soundtrack.
Check out Frat Dad's awesome song Radiation Rush on our cassette tape Heavy Medicine.

It seems the trappings of Princeton popularity aren't quite enough for the Kivel family. After the success of 'Calypso Gold' the debut release on the great new London based singles label Jodie & Victor comes a split 7” featuring Matt Kivel's (Pinceton Bass and vocals) new band Mystery Claws and Long Beach based Sleeping Bags.
Following on from much acclaim for the other half of Princeton Jesse Kivel's project Kisses, Matt looks to not be outshadowed with his folky pop gem 'Phony Checks' featuring a bum-budget produced video paying reference to the opening of teen dreamer flick 'Almost Famous'.
The split's other half Sleeping Bags 'Canteloupe', gives nods to shoegazers My Bloody Valentine or Ride and in its furthest reaches Kraut rockers Neu. But there's still an inkling of that California summer landscaping and commerical intention that has served Princeton so well. You wouldn't even be surprised to find the Kivels hidden in the corner of the recording studio to lay claim to another new blog hit on this one.
For any burdgeoning family bands working away, heed the call. One band just ain't gonna cut it.
Note: Jones Brothers need not apply.

But tonight’s Ariel Pink is a fully formed performer, brimming with an alternative-universe-stage-school confidence that betrays his reputation as a lone traveller through music’s forgotten cosmos. At times he conjures the ‘drunk grandma in her best heels’ vibe of vintage David Johansson, the hair lashing intensity of eighties Ozzy Ozbourne and strangest of all, the troll like physical comedy of Bill Bailey.
He is funny, intoxicating (and obviously intoxicated) and whilst he is clearly daft as a brush, it’s easy to be swept along by the energy he and the band expend on behalf of having a good time. Throughout tonight’s set, the group mine just about every left of centre genre you can imagine, creating a disorientating, schizo feeling in the room, as if someone keeps turning the dial on the radio (or flicking the channel, considering AP’s clear love for forgotten TV show themes) streaming thirty second blasts of wild rock n roll, 80’s funk, sugary 60’s sunshine pop and pompous 70’s glam into the room, and that’s just the first song.
Two encores later the crowd have been treated to some choice cuts from new record Before Today (alas no Can’t Hear My Eyes or Beverly Kills) and plenty of fleshed out early recordings, the highlight of which, Kate I Wait, with its awkward time signatures tackled nobly by the group, proves the perfectly odd end to a memorable evening.

It'll be released on August 23rd over here in the UK and September 28th in the US, unlucky.
Here's the sweet artwork, very reminiscent of Magazine and PIL and i know the band are big fans of UK post punk so here's hoping the aesthetic of the music follows suit...
That's pretty much all we know at the moment but we'll keep you updated as and when new tracks start to trickle through the cracks in the web and here's a link to a recent radio session the band did debuting new tracks on CBC.
