Kickstarter: Seven Inches of Heaven with husband&wife

Alright, this is it. The moment many have been waiting for. One of Bloomington’s most beloved bands husband&wife, is ready to make a new record, and we all know how long that can take. These hardworking guys take their time to craft their songs, recordings, and every detail of the physical component. At times they’ve taken up to five years to release new work. Want to help bridge the gap between you and the next husband&wife release? Support the band!

husband&wife has taken on its first Kickstarter campaign called Seven Inches of Heaven with husband&wife. What’s it all about? The band is preparing and raising funds to release its next musical project, a two-song 7″ vinyl single. Now, as I said, they’ve been known to take their time; the last time this band released a 7″ was in 2005, a split single with then-Marion, Indiana band Away With Vega. Do the math folks, that’s seven years and one defunct band ago. With your help the single can be in the hands of fans (yourself included) as early as February 2013 (which means a full-length album won’t be too far behind!)

There are tons of GREAT rewards planned for those who lend financial support, so head on over to the Kickstarter page and find an amount that fits your budget and a gift for your generosity! In only three days, the campaign has already met 75% of its goal, and there is no pledge to big or to small to help this project reach 100%!

Guest Review: Tim Felton on Milagres “Glowing Mouth”


There are a lot many reasons to check out one of Bloomington’s biggest live shows of the week featuring Peter Wolf Crier, Milagres, and hometown heroes husband&wife at The Bishop the Wednesday.  There’s the local buzz:  Bloomington’s husband&wife is still hitting things strong having spent most of 2011 on the road in support of 2010’s Proud Flesh; after pulling off yet another successful XRA Fest last month the band has even had time to work on some new material that will no doubt make an appearance at this show.  Minneapolis, MN band Peter Wolf Crier is only one of the many bands blowing up the national indie music scene for Bloomington-based indie label Jagjaguwar this year.  The band’s latest release Garden of Arms has garnered positive reviews on the blog-o-sphere as well as nods from the likes of Pitchfork, The Onion/AV Club, and Paste Magazine among others.  However, even with all of that hometown pride, it’s Peter Wolf Crier’s tourmates, Brooklyn’s Milagres, that added the extra “cherry-on-top” to this lineup.

Favorite Songs of 2010

It’s the time of the year when self-proclaimed music critics and bloggers roll out their lists “Best Of” lists.  I really don’t like calling things the ‘best’, because honestly there is just too much good music out their to single things out as being the best.  Also, I skipped most of the ‘talked about’ albums of the year, because I just didn’t have the time, money, or interest to dive into them.  So starting with this list will begin my picks for the music I did get to check out and enjoy in 2010.
