Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that’s been hailed as “where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road”, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his latest album Little Victories (September 2012), Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. Read more

Tele Novella is sugar-crash dream-psych popsicle punch out of Austin, TX with members of Agent Ribbons and Voxtrot. Influenced by the nocturnal jungles of Os Mutantes and the lapeled, knee-socked smarts of Belle and Sebastian, the songwriting is sincere and evocative. In early 2014 they released the single version of ‘Trouble in Paradise’ on vinyl with American Laundromat Records right on the tail of the Wes Anderson tribute compilation, to which they contributed a contagious version of ‘Stephanie Says’ by the Velvet Underground. Now they’re releasing their first EP ‘Cosmic Dial Tone’ on Los Angeles Psych-Pop label Lolipop Records and will be logging a whole lot of tour dates this fall! Read more
