Stomp & Stammer Reviews The Good Graces

Stomp and Stammer
's Jeff Clark reviewed The Good Graces EP Bring On The Tambourines in the December issue and Support Our Troops section of the magazine. I love being associated with this record!
Kim Ware's group The Good Graces has always provided a pleasant experience, but it hasn't been until their new five-song EPBring On the Tambourines! that they've really made much of a lasting impression. Relaxed, direct, poignant, honest, funny and with a mouth like a sailor, it's the record the band's been needing to make. It's like they jumped off from the simplest premises – "Bad Driver" is about a bad driver, "I Miss the '90s" is about missing the '90s, etc. – and ran with 'em, but it's the clever writing and unpretentious performances that make it work.

Different Skies recordings released on Earth Mantra Netlabel

My latest albums, edited and mastered recordings from the September 2008 Different Skies Festival performance (I'm one of the several players that were part of the ensemble), are available free from the Earth Mantra label. The titles of the releases are That Merciless Sky and Arcosanitarium.

This is the third and fourth Different Skies release on Earth Mantra, with previous releases from the 2007 Festival, Strange Lines and Distances and Imaginary Spaces.

From the Earth Mantra website:

About Earth Mantra

Earth Mantra Netlabel is a privately owned and operated ambient music netlabel that exists for the sole purpose of sharing the music of certain artsts that we feel are of interest to ambient fans. Unlike a typical label, all of the music on Earth Mantra is available freely for non-commercial use.

In other words, it is free to download our music and share it with other people, as long as it is for non-commercial purposes, proper credit is given to the artist and to Earth Mantra, and no modifications to our releases are made.

We call Earth Mantra a netlabel since this is the traditional way to refer to any music label that distributes its music digitally under a Creative Commons license. For specific details surrounding our license and what you may (and may not) do freely under it, please visit the Creative Commons site. Put simply, our license means individual music lovers can legally enjoy our music to their heart's content, at no cost, with our complete blessing.

We are dedicated to publishing only high quality ambient music from some of the best musicians around. We work hard to carefully select those titles we will release and to ensure they are the kind of music that we think our listeners will love. Our artists range from world-reknowned folks who have played at the highest levels of the music industry to artists who are completely unknown and make music out of their homes. To Earth Mantra, the paramount factor is the quality of the music. It is our goal to bring the best ambient music possible to our listeners.

The Good Graces Gigs and Reviews

The Good Graces will be performing on Thursday night, October 21st, at Twains in Decatur, GA. Cousins opens up for us at 8:30pm.

Lots of reviews on the blogosphere. Here's the latest:
THE GOOD GRACES - Bring on the Tambourines! ( Offering up five tracks worth of nicely harmonic and humorous pop-rock songs in a snappy and straightforward fifteen minutes, this pleasingly jaunty EP CD certainly hits the tart and tuneful spot. Kim Ware’s warm, inviting voice and sharp, witty songwriting make for a potent double whammy. The wickedly funny and profane lyrics do the amusingly sardonic trick as well, with “Bad Driver” and “I Miss the 90s” rating as definite gut-busting highlights. The group’s firm grasp of catchy melodies qualifies as another major asset. But it’s this band’s winningly snarky sense of cynical humor which in turn makes this CD such a treat to listen to. - Joe Wawyrzniak,

QRO Magazine Review of Sensitive Chaos' Nophest Performance

QRO Magazine writer Mic Mell reviewed last month's Nophest Music Festival and gave my Sensitive Chaos performance a nice mention. Read the whole review here.

My mention is here:
The music itself passed the spectrum from afternoon ambient electronica to full on blaring rock ‘n' roll at night. Each band that played had their own identity, their own image, and their own talent. There was not a dud in the bunch. Nophest is not musically genre based, and each passing hour continued to showcase electronic, rock, indie, and punk bands, all spanning the extensive and eclectic of Garcia, and the community at large. Friday night included the hard electronic and multimedia presentation of Larvae, and the experimental and lively Jungol. This Piano Plays Itself brought a lush, raw, and well arranged mix of rock and pop. Saturday was a very rock oriented, and the parking lot and stage area were jam packed for the full Renaissance regalia and steampunk sensibility of Extraordinary Contraption, and the blazing guitar and soulful vocals of Garcia's own indie band Nerd Parade. By Sunday, the crowds were sparse, partly due to the endless rain, as well as the unrelenting hangovers. Halfway through the day, Sensitive Chaos summed up the mood perfectly, with a low-key set of electronics that massaged the brain, and soothed the heart. While the music played on, the other major event of Sunday was a large gathering of folks in the parking lot playing six degrees of Kevin Bacon, complete with notes and a map for quick reference.

Music Labels Reach Online Royalty Deal

A New York Times article on Tuesday's agreement between Music Labels and SoundExchange and online broadcasters:

Webcasters with significant advertising revenue, like Pandora or Slacker, will pay the greater of 25 percent of revenue or a fee each time a listener hears a song, starting at .08 cent for songs streamed in 2006 and increasing to .14 cent in 2015. Pandora had $19 million in revenue last year and expects that to rise to $40 million this year.

Small sites with less than $1.25 million in revenue, like AccuRadio, Digitally Imported and RadioIO, will pay 12 to 14 percent of it in royalties. All stations will be required to pay an annual minimum fee of $25,000, which they can apply to their royalty payments.

Sensitive Chaos @ MGFest and City Skies Shows July 11 & 12

I'll be performing as Sensitive Chaos twice on the weekend of July 11th and 12 with shows at Saturday night's City Skies 09 Electronic Music event @ Kavarna in Decatur, GA and Sunday night's MGFest09 (Motion Graphics Fest) @ The Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA.

My set at City Skies will start at 8pm and other fantastic performers that night are Pink Kodiak, reklein, and Mark Mahoney. Kavarna is located at 707 East Lake Drive, Decatur, GA 30030. More info can be found at

I'm really excited about the MGFest show. I'll be performing from 9:30-11pm for an extra long set, and my set visuals will be provided by Integrated Visions, an Atlanta, GA based VJ team founded by Michelle Penland and Bryan Dodson in 2002.

After graduating from the art school at the University of Georgia, Michelle and Bryan began experimenting with collaborative visual arts, searching for a technique that would allow them to collaborate with visual art similar to the way Jazz musicians collaborate with sound. This experimentation led them to discover the unlimited possibilities of VJing. In addition to allowing Michelle and Bryan the opportunity to collaborate with each other, VJing has allowed them the opportunity to collaborate with countless artists from different disciplines including musicians, dancers, actors and directors.

Since 2002, Integrated Visions has performed live video projections along side many internationally recognized artists including DJ Qbert, Richard Devine, Carl Cox, Infected Mushroom, Deep Dish, the Juice Crew and The Roots. Their work can also be seen on tour this summer with Very Disco, a Daft Punk Tribute.
