Live Luscious Skin

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Hot on the heels of a nice review from the Cassette Gods, Luscious Skin is playing a rare live show at Lawrence Kansas based Love Garden Sounds Records tomorrow night. The show starts at 7:30 and you will see the band in a four piece ensemble and possibly hear some new material as well as the songs from Ventriloquist. If you’re in the area don’t miss it.

Introducing Incredibly Strange Creatures

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

We are pleased to announce that Gomez, Earl, and Brandon, formerly of Illus Ocean have a new album: Faustian Ethics and a new name: Incredibly Strange Creatures. Picking up where the Illus Ocean debut (Meskin In The Attic) left off, they maintain the ability to make what is essentially an album that calls to mind the bold sense of adventure, musicianship and actual songwriting that characterized much of the best of albums from the 70’s and in so doing make something that sounds very fresh and new. With elements of Jazz, Ragtime and Honky Tonk infusing Rock songs with the feel of a carnival barker, a marching band and a tack piano maestro, you’re not likely to hear much else this summer that sounds like this. The Ft. Worth based band manage to make exploring the compromises we all make in our own Faustian dealings through the lens of relationships gone amok, deranged people, damaged people and words from the devil himself, sound entertaining.
Faustian Ethics will be out September 11 on mini cd and digital formats. We’ll have a free sample and more details in the coming weeks. For now here’s the cover and track listing:

1. Hunch
2. Devil Made Me Do It
3. Leslie Lynn
4. Annabelle
5. Lost On Toodle Oo
6. Sick Little Girl
7. It Sucks
8. Fever
