Sing to the tune of “The Bounce” by Jay-Z: “Rumor has it, the Netherfriends classic, couldn’t even be stopped by… Jay-Z’s… um… new album…” Or something like that.

Anyhow, 50 Songs 50 States is the culmination of a year long project where Netherfriends wrote and recorded a song- and performed a show, in every state in the USA from April 2010-2011.

Quit your job. Give up your lease. Drive your car around the country for one year. Write and a record a song in every state. Go to the beach. Go to the mountains. Go to the desert. Go somewhere. Go skateboarding. Go bowling. Get your van stolen. Get your laptop stolen. Run out of gas. Get into fights. Question your reason for living. Question your art. Explore. Discover. Love cities. Hate cities. Drink beer. Drink energy drinks. Drink sweet tea. Grow a beard. Sleep on a couch. Sleep in a parachute tent. Sleep on the floor. Sleep in a warehouse. Sleep in a van. Explain your project to the cops when you get pulled over. Play to an empty room. Play to a packed house. Play a BBQ in Oakland. Play a gallery in Seattle. Get addicted to coffee. Play a haunted venue in Vermont. Play a museum in Cape Cod. See Mt. Rushmore. See the Northern Lights. See the Golden Gate Bridge. Learn what Hawaii smells like. Learn that there is a town called Nampa in Idaho and play a show there. Learn the prices of produce in every state. Draw a self-portrait. Keep calm. Get angry. Make regrets. Don’t miss the cat; miss the girl. Record in a van at an abandoned gas station in Alabama. Record in a sun room. Record in a hotel bathroom. Do it. Do it better. Write about it all. Share it with the world.

Ava Luna & Celestial Shore Visit The Kimball House

Fess Grandiose With Ava Luna & Celestial Shore

Isn’t it funny how these things happen? Fess Grandiose went down to New Orleans recently to hang out with Netherfriends during his NOLA residency. During his stay, Fess happened to meet a couple of touring bands from Brooklyn- Ava Luna and Celestial Shore.

As fate would have it, both bands would be playing in Chicago around the same time Fess was to return, so he invited them to stay at the Kimball House during their Windy City excursion.  The rest, they say, is history.

Connect with Ava Luna & Celestial Shore – that is, if you want to hear some great music from a very talented group of people:

Nunca Duerma – Dilated

Dilated is the new 3-track EP from Nunca Duerma, released on Eliot Lipp‘s Old Tacoma Records.  The EP is a collection of sample-based grooves and layered drums that will resonate on dance floors while also appealing to a critical listener’s sensibilities.

Attuned to the techniques of chopping and resampling, Nunca Duerma uses his affinity for Hip-Hop and expertise of warping to create a complex but appealing set of downtempo, soul-influenced, experimental tracks.
