Maria Taylor is set to release her new album Lynn Teeter Flower on March 6th thru Saddle Creek. You may better know her as half of Azure Ray.

“With Lynn Teeter Flower, she takes her songcraft one step further, mixing together soaring guitars, bubbly electronics, feathery farfisa organs and sugary layers of vocals into the sweetest confection of an album you’ll hear all year. “

Her music is quiet, and last time I saw her she yelled at the people talking at the bar. So, please try to give her your undivided attention.

A Good Start

Okay, I’m the first to admit that I know very little about the noise or drone movement but Boris peeked my curiosity with their Pink album on Southern Lord. It was the album cover. Anyone who’s worked in music or shopped it for years can tell a lot about an album cover. They’ve done albums with SunnO))) and Merzbow (a new piece on Troubleman soon). Well, Boris’ new album Rainbow is a collaboration with Michio Kurihara of Ghost. From what I’ve heard, Michio’s guitar work is awesome to see live. The album should be out sometime this year.

Canadian Julie Doiron‘s new album Woke Myself Up streets on January 23 thru Jagjaguwar. Her friend and former bandmate in Eric’s Trip, Rick White, produced and played a few instruments on this album. She released one album singing in French, Desormais, and in 2003, she put out a split with Okkervil River. I’ve loved her since her first solo album, and on the song “untitled”, I think she sounds a bit like Cat Power.
