“sitting alone at the movies”//k records, i love you
THIS IS AMAZING. WE’RE MAKING THIS THE SONG OF THE DAY, JUST FOR YOU.
Today’s K song of the day is The Hive Dwellers’ space-jam weird out “Lynch the Swan” off of the Dub Narcotic Disco Plate [DBN126], available in the shop!
Stay weird, get groovy, dance with K.
There is a Hive Dwellers music video being made, featuring the people of Olympia, Washington dancing like Calvin Johnson this weekend! Everyone is invited, and more information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/266236896836846/
Follow this link to sign up for a time and location on Saturday:
If you can’t make it Saturday, they are also shooting at TCTV Friday evening after Dance Oly Dance (which ends at 9:00pm).
If you can’t make it either day, but really want to be in the video, just let them know and they will figure something out!
“Sitting Alone At The Movies,” one of our very favorite K songs of the year. Sing it, Calvin!
(Listen to ALL of Hewn From The Wilderness here, and cheer yourself right up.)
The Hive Dwellers are playing at Hollow Earth Radio with La Luz and Stickers. Groovin’ poster by Shana Cleveland of La Luz (formerly of Curious Mystery).
I LOVE THIS PHOTO.
Calvin Johnson & Gabe Will (The Hive Dwellers) being amazing at some undisclosed location.
Is it silly that almost every song on this Hive Dwellers album calls to mind the smell of fresh cut pine for me?
Oh, Calvin. (Oh, yes, and did you know that you can stream ALL of this album, plus all of Calvin’s other albums, plus everything else in the K shop for FREE now? Its true. You’re welcome.)
The Hive Dwellers live in Seaview, Washington!
Direct from the Pink Elephant’s Graveyard here are three short excerpts from the Hive Dwellers show earlier this month at the Sou’wester Lodge on the Pacific Coast. Learn more from this weblog post about the Hive Dwellers Coastal Tour.
They met in the ’80s!
In early 1991 Beat Happening, Bratmobile, and Nation of Ulysses (and Unrest!) made clatterous bramble at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, N.J.
In August, 2012 Calvin Johnson, Erin Smith and Ian Svenonius are lamenting the absence of Mark Robinson - and Molly, Steve, Phil, Bret, Bridget, Tim, Heather, Allison, Steve and James!
Our Calvin Johnson has a band, The Hive Dwellers, and they play lots and lots of shows and are always up for the unusual experience, like this show that they’re playing today at 5- Radio 8Ball- Live Musical Tarot with Andras Jones at Kitzel’s.
Radio 8Ball is a long standing Musical Divination show, where the Pop Oracle asks questions of the cards and the band answers them with random lyrics and song titles.
Intriguing, yes? http://www.radio8ball.com/
