Gluebag - ‘Confused’ LP coming March 18th

I am beyond excited to announce that next month will see the release of ‘Confused' by Gluebag as the latest offering from Framework.
image

Hailing from the deep and storied woods of Western Massachusetts, Gluebag deliver an exceptional collection of luring, blown out sounds with their ‘Confused' LP. Featuring members of SQRM, World Domination, and Crystalline Roses, this 3 piece blends the songwriting of late-60s rock with the urgency of American hardcore punk to create a sound that is far from commonplace in the current underground scene. Originally recorded in 2008 and distributed on a small number of cassette tapes by the band, we're thrilled to celebrate Gluebag's recent return from dormancy with the release of 'Confused' in it's original intended form on vinyl. Fans of Neil Young, Dead Moon, and true punk will rejoice at the existence of Gluebag, and at the absorbing songs found within ‘Confused’.

Confused by Gluebag will be released on March 18th on black vinyl LP with download card via Framework.

Hear the track “I Am Not Right” from Confused below:

The band is planning a weekend of record release shows in Western Massachusetts and NYC to celebrate the release. Details to follow.

Fits, a multi-media art show by Fred Thomas, opens this Sunday in Ann Arbor

This Sunday, January 12th, will see the opening party of Fits, a multi-media sound & vision installation presented by Fred Thomas’ Life Like Tapes. The show, and opening party will be hosted at Today Clothing in Ann Arbor, MI. This is a completely free, all ages event, all are welcome. Apart from the art and meeting-of-minds vibes, Rebel Kind will play a set in a stripped down formation.

Fits" looks into combinations of images, sounds, contexts and ideas that are by turns jarring, annoying, unexpected, mundane, nice, obvious, etc. How different elements fit together and how quickly the entire picture changes with a subtle shift of combinations. For this project, Fred Thomas made 9 silkscreened prints for the visual component and called on 18 different musicians, poets, performers and all other breed of freaks to contribute audio components. These combinations are presented in the form of 9 cassette tapes split between artists that fit together strangely or sublimely. Both prints and tapes will be available for sale in editions of 30. The entire audio series will also be streaming for free online after the show opens. Contributors to the show include:
Fred Thomas
Haunted
Windy & Carl
John Olson
ESCAPE-ISM
