Majestico is releasing a fairly good take of their staple songs this Saturday. Get on it, get played on, get tape on it. The neon kind. Watch out for the punks that come your way, Bay-Bay say. Is Love God? say Jose but we don’t know so now you know. I’d personally rather see my teeth in drag than drag my teeth all around this town but that’s the city for you. Good luck.

Matt Glassmeyer, townie and Meadownoise, will be releasing his record, It’s 4:00 – which we can only assume is an NPR reference, which is not cool – at the locally owned and operated record store The Groove this Saturday (8/25). It’s good. We’ve heard it. So should you. He made it in his room with all of his own stuff, no money, and lots of time (his words). You can peep it at his band camp below, as well as with the video for the song “This Machine and Me” which has railbikes in it. Matt’s a grownup badass.
Tonight, at a relatively abandoned-yet-for-sale-forever building across from Franz, Cricket, or the Family Wash (depending on your geographical orientation as well as your socio-economic bracket), Johnathan Davis’s art will be displayed, Matt Tocco’s drinks will be made, and we here at Blacktooth Records will be spinning. It’s a party for all your senses and it’s pretty surgical.
Take a peek, won’t you? We’ve had this in the wheelhouse for a while, so we’re pretty excited.
$5 to participate in the liberation of the cocktail, the rest is free or donation.
Get right with it everybody. Record Store Day 2012 is gwon be too tight.
There’s a lot of really good bands, free beer (I think?) and Black Diamond. Who is a Black Neil Diamond impersonator. Who will be on a roof. And that’s reason enough.
Plus The Groove carries all of the Blacktooth Releases and they rule on a personal level.
We’ll see you there. And so will he:
Bill Rowe here.
I’m taking time out of my increasingly busy business life – managing these young ruffians here at Blacktooth Records is exhausting – to let you all know about my new Spiritual Advisor & Life Coach, Russell. Things have gotten so busy and convoluted with this business venture, I had to start making the tough decisions. Decisions such as, ‘do I eat local and slow even though I don’t have time to?’ and, ‘should I get a global phone number?’ Those all were relatively easy, but one that took the most deliberation was whether I was going to tend to my business life or my spiritual life. We all know it’s impossible to do both, and we also know which one I would pick given the inevitable crossroads (business, duh). So I’m pleased to announce the latest addition to Blacktooth Records via my own forced life, Russell, Spiritual Advisor & Life Coach extraordinaire.
I met him at Percy Priest lake and I saw him just walk off the island while we were on Andrija’s boat. He said he had just gotten back from Manhattan and said he found me. Welcome him as you would a new release from us here. They’re the same thing. Trust me.
In other news:
Also, the local-well-to-do-enough-Alt paper here in Nashville, hereafter known as “The Scene”, was very sweet to profile some lovely Blacktooth bands (and non-Blacktooth bands) who were playing at the Basement for our friends that run the Memetic Society, the label in Chattanooga that put outta ton of 45′s for bands in Tennessee they thought were cool (we told you about it here: <click!>). Some great quotes include, “dweeby,” “California-sun” and “danceabilty.” Good job Majestico, Faux Ferocious and Fly Golden Eagle! You guys are great.

More to come, both there and here. Happy weekend:
Sup? Blacktooth’s rival, Memetic Society, has officially tried to one up us by releasing 11 or so 45s of bands that we find dope and/or have put out records for ourself. So now, it’s on. However, these records are fantastic, beautiful, and well-done, so our envy level is low.
The 45s are a part of a project highlighting bands across Tennessee . You got Knoxville, you got Memphis, you got Chattanooga, and of course you got Nashville. Clockwise above are the records for Square People, Faux Ferocious, Majestico, and Fly Golden Eagle. You can check the Memetic website for a full list of the bands involved in the project.
The 45s will be for sale at shows and from the web site (ours as well! just soon, not now) and we hope you dig them because we think they are digable.
Come see Ranch Ghost and Fly Golden Eagle at the End TONIGHT (12/2) with Last Year’s Men and score some o’ dem records, main.
Chris Murray of Square People sent over this mix and it’s filled with that good stuff. You know, the goooood stuff. The stuff that makes you wanna shake your shoulders, thrash about, or stand on the wall and look at everyone/thing around you and think, ‘all right, all right.’
Well, I assume it’s filled with the good stuff. I haven’t listened to it yet. But I inferred as much by the track listing.
At any rate, here’s what Chris had to say about the tunes, and if you aren’t familiar with Square People (or any other of their dimensions) you’re doing yourself a great disservice and you should really question how you spend your time. (We’ve written about them once or twice…) Ya’ll get back now.
Here’s a mix around the theme of temporality: the tracks here are all stuff I’m real into. They’re not all one genre or mood or style or race or whatever. I just like them. And maybe won’t, come next summer. At least not as much. Cause we’re always changing (I think.) Plus music is always changing (I hope,) or how we find it, our listening habits, brain patterns.
I used a “hip” “vintage” compiling process, which leaves you with two large mp3s instead of individual tracks. So you’ll have to take it in one big gulp (obviously, not really cause you can just skip around in the little song progress bar in iTunes.) It’s not too serious like it’s “must be heard all the way through, in headphones.” I actually don’t know how well it flows cause I haven’t listened to it yet. It’s just me, you know, playing some cool music during one evening and doing “DJ Banter.” (I’ll go ahead and apologize now for the DJ Banter.)
Anyway, hope you enjoy. There’s some really sexually explicit rap in the middle of side A, so be ready for that. Also there’s stuff from some bands I dig in the “Nashville Underground” (I guess that’s what you’d call it,) and I encourage you to check them out in a live performance context.
I called it “It’s Hot and I Don’t Wanna Go Outside” because that is true about me.
