AA Wallace Launches New Website Along With New Video and Cassette Release

1947705_10153799600105184_1711749923_nAA Wallace has recently unveiled a slick new website, along with a video for “Lipstick and Stethoscopes” and announced a limited cassette release for his experimental 2012 release “the mu-(sic) 4 zero muzizians”.

The video for “Lipstick and Stethoscopes” is the most recent in a string of videos from the (disambiguation) LP to explore detachment and time. Set in a 70s era faux-European psychedelic network television nightmare, the video references an age when music shows were a clusterfuck of visual effects, staged performances and fake enthusiasm.

Watch the video HERE.

Wallace has also announced the release of a limited Cassette edition of “the mu-(sic) 4 zero muzizians” an experimental 7-track EP blending VHS samples, minimalist beats and dark soundscapes. The release will be available both on our store and the AA Wallace bandcamp store.

You can catch AA Wallace and his live band at the recently announced SHAKE Festival at the Marquee Club on March 29th with Scientists of Sound, Whale Skin, Pineo, KDZ and Wet Paint. TIckets available HERE.

Acadian Embassy Artist Update Nov 2013

AE-Tile2x2It’s been a busy month for Acadian Embassy artists. The last 30 days saw everyone perform at both the Halifax Pop Explosion and Nova Scotia Music Week in Sydney. They conquered rain storms, strobe lights and poor diets to keep up the pace, and in the end the Embassy’s Trevor Murphy took home an award for his Radio Program Halifax is Burning, Sleepless Nights played a brief 15 minute set (their first time on stage together in over two years) and about fifteen people bedded down at the Acadian Embassy suite over the course of four days. Not all at the same time however, no matter how much it felt like it.

With lots of stuff happening we figured we’d compile it for everyone, so here’s some updates for the next  month or so.
