New Music: The Kills Concert Film
& The Weakerthans’ John K. Samson ‘Provincial’ Solo Album

The Kills’ Live Concert Film

Alison Mosshart and James Hince have the kind of presence that makes you believe that these people were truly born to be on stage and rock as hard as they do. Which is why it’s awesome that The Kills have announced that they will be releasing a live concert DVD.

“A bunch of friends and fans filmed our second show at L’Olympia in Paris for us.” The performance took place just a couple weeks ago, on November 13, and included backing from the band’s own Black Rooster Drum Corps and Choir. [Exclaim.ca]

The Weakerthans’ John K. Samson ‘Provincial’ Solo Album

The landscape of this country is a familiar theme in Canadian music and John K. Samson, the frontman of the Weakerthans, is following true in that tradition with his new solo album.

John K. Samson has released seven-inch records about roads in his home province of Manitoba. These low-key three-song releases have now spawned a full-length, Provincial, due out January 24 via Epitaph Records.

According to a press release, the collection includes newly recorded versions of the songs from the seven-inches, plus unheard tracks.  [Exclaim.ca]

  1. Thank you for posting this! I rellay need to get these on vinyl. Aside is one of my favorite songs of all time, easy. I think I’ve put it on nearly every mix CD I’ve ever made. I wish I could have seen them at the Blind Pig! I saw them at St. Andrew’s in Detroit several years ago, but unfortunately that was the only time.
