On February 7, 2012, The Lemonheads will release Hotel Sessions on Hall of Records/Breath of Saltwater – an intimate recording documenting a Sunday night that Evan Dando spent recording new songs with just an acoustic guitar (and some revealing commentary) in a hotel room in Bondi Beach, Australia.






























A Grave With No Name – Crows
A Grave With No Name – Sofia


‘Crows’ is a new demo from A Grave With No Name tagged as Grunge / Country / Ambient (duo) and the Influences are The Microphones, Subway…. at their own Myspace site,  ‘Sofia’ is taken from their last year’s first full length “Mountain Debris” via No Pain In Pop / Lefse.


Most of what London’s A Grave With No Name do enters the world through ‘The Church’, the bedroom studio of main man Alex Shields. Bassist Tom King and guitarist Anupa Madawela are called in when the time comes to add a more sturdy grunge backbone to whoozy dream-pop that recalls the stoned slackerisms of Animal Collective and Daniel Johnston, voices entwining with processed beats, white noise and lost melodies.  ( Lefse)
