Benefit for Alison and Nick Nocera of Alison Rose

connections_3_29

This weekend three bands from the Anyway roster will be joining together for a good cause. Tomorrow night, Connections, WV White, and Winter Makes Sailors will take to the stage at Ace of Cups to raise funds for Alison and Nick Nocera, the creative force behind hand-printed apparel company Alison Rose. The couple was in a car accident in November, and like many self-employed individuals in those pre-Obamacare days, they didn’t have health insurance. As such, they still have medical bills that need to be paid, so the three bands are donating all the money taken at the door to help them do so. You’ll no doubt want to pick up one of the t-shirts Alison Rose recently produced for Connections too.

St. Lenox covers Scott Walker

St. Lenox recently recorded a damn fine cover of Scott Walker’s “Jackie,” which you can hear below.

St. Lenox performs new song

St. Lenox will be finishing up law school this year just in time for the release of his debut record. When not studying, he still manages to play live in New York. Below is a video of him performing a new song, “New York Speaks Softly,” at Unplugged Mondays, an open mic event that takes place at the East Village location of Bareburger (who, by the way, we hear makes a damn good burger and will be opening up shop in Columbus this year).

Connections’ new video for “That’s All”

Here’s the video for “That’s All,” a new song from Connections slated for an upcoming release on Hozac Records. The video was produced at the Columbus Museum of Art’s Center for Creativity. As part of the January edition of the museum’s Connector Series, visitors to the museum were invited to create a rock ‘n’ roll persona and help produce this video.

Connections’ new LP out now and featured on Pitchfork

Connections, Body LanguageConnections’ new album, Body Language, is out now and is available on vinyl or in digital form via Midheaven, Insound, and Amazon, as well as at the finest of your local record stores. It will be available in the near future on a CD that will also include the Private Airplane album and Touch City EP.

Pitchfork recently reviewed Body Language, rating it a 7.4 and calling it “a smart, stupendously catchy, often downright inspiring examination of the things that get us going in spite of ourselves, set to one head-stick melody after the other.”

WV White debut set for release on Anyway

Over the past year, one excellent band after another has taken root and sprouted in Columbus, and perhaps one of the finest is WV White. The band caught our eye when they opened for The Kyle Sowashes, and they have since melded into a sonic juggernaut, albeit one with copious amounts of cough syrup and PBR. Sounding somewhat like a tripped-out Nikki Sudden and the Jacobites via “Morrison Hotel,” the band is astounding live. They are finishing up their debut album to be released on Anyway in 2014. You can read an interview with the band at The Agit Reader and in the meantime check out this video of the band performing last year:
