Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker

Thrill Jockey is preparing to released a collection of songs recorded over a two year span by the duo of drummer Charles Rumback and Ryley Walker. The album is called Little Common Twist and was produced by John Hughes.

These are meditative, almost ambient, creations that grow and develop with each listen. There are currently two tracks available, “Half Joking” and “Menebhi”, prior to the album’s release on November 8th.

Elk Walking “Over The Hills"

Elk Walking has released a new single called “Over The Hills”. This is the first new music from the group since their October 2018 single, “Walk Away”.

This is the work of Savanna Dickhut (of Burr Oak) (guitar /vox), Julian Daniell (guitar /vox/ percussion), Jeff Sullivan (Guitar), David Thrift (Bass), and Tommaso Veronesi (Drums).

Pardoner plays El Rio Nov 6

San Francisco punky alternative group Pardoner is set to play El Rio on November the 6 with New York’s Bethlehem Steel and World Smasher. Pardoner’s most recent album, Playin' on a Cloud, was a self-released collection of songs with Weezer and Green Day influences and some Fiery Furnaces thrown in for kicks. They’re fun and loud and happy and ready to roll. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
