CMJ Posted a Great Review + Photo Gallery of Tommy Wallach's Release Show At Joe's Pub!

Wallach has a knack for creating compelling musical narratives and marring them to a dexterous performance style enriching the experience. The novelist, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, is finally having his stars align towards abounding success. The latest album We All Looked Up is sure to be the catalyst for his limitless musical trajectory, and a telescope won’t be needed for this cosmic display.

Baeble Was Blown Away by Tommy Wallach at Joe's Pub

Tommy Wallach’s set was so good that it retroactively made me feel guilty about my trepidation towards the evening and it definitely made me feel guilty for all the silent shade I was throwing at the East Village types in attendance. It’s still easy to feel intimidated and a little disgusted at all of the excessive wealth on display, but that night was about appreciating a talented young artist with a remarkable future ahead of him — as we reported a week ago, Paramount has optioned the rights to his film — and Tommy Wallach left me and everyone else at Joe’s Pub more than satisfied.

Pittsburgh In Tune Calls Tommy Wallach's 'We All Looked Up' A Gem

There isn’t a bad song to be found on the 10-track, 39-minute slab, but pay special attention to standouts “A Natural Disaster,” “No Stars,” personal favorite “Bad Bad People,” “Bloodless Love,” “Photographer, I Love the Painter,” “Seduce Me” and “Madeline.” With two killer records in less than a year — not to mention the book and movie — Wallach’s star is definitely on the rise.

Baeble Premiered Tommy Wallach's "I Will Watch"

When The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle released his debut novel Wolf in White Van last year, it got me thinking about something. Why don’t more of our more literary songwriters write books? Well, we here at Baeble are very happy to be premiering the newest single, “I Will Watch,” from Brooklyn singer-songwriter Tommy Wallach as well to tell all of you about Wallach’s forthcoming dual album & book release show at Joe’s Pub on March 27th.

Carolinabound's 'Smoking Gun' Featured in NOOGA's "Four Records You Should Hear This Week"

The music of Carolinabound (AKA North Carolina-based singer-songwriter Chris Smith) draws a particular stillness from the grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Smith’s countrified folk tones and whiskey-soaked melodies connect to form a curious line of affecting rhythms and lyrical introspection. On his debut EP, “Smoking Gun,” he pulls from a rather long history of desperate stories of love, loss and the experiences that tie the two together. Bringing to mind scenes of front porch serenades and empty Southern roads, these songs conjure an immersive landscape where it becomes all too easy to lose your way.

Bullett Has the Scoop on Guts Club's Favorite Incredible Hulk Moments!

What began as a video project of collaged, absurdist found footage, has manifested in Lindsey Baker’s Guts Club. The guts of the club are jittery visual trips, with animals, me with guns, bags of money and other things super imposed over girls in bikinis, road tripping humans, and babies.

Baker’s full length The Arm Wrestling Tournament is a sparse but vivid folk jaunt, recorded in the Catskills, but sounding nothing like the woods, a mountain, or a scene from Over the Top–though her father was a true fan of competitive arm wrestling.

Tomorrow night Baker will perform live tomorrow at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, in a multimedia pastiche of all things uncomfortably numb.

When asked what shaped her fleshy aesthetic, she of course pointed to the gamma ray induced parables of the Incredible Hulk television show, and listed off her five favorite Bruce … I mean David Banner moments for us.
