Shilpa Ray’s latest record, Door Girl, takes as its titular inspiration her time working the door at Lower East Side / New York City bar Pianos, its reputation one of hard-scrabble survival and the inspiration of desperation. We think it’s one of best damn rock n’ roll records we’ve heard in a long time.

The album’s first single, “EMT Police and the Fire Department,” is out now. Watch the incredible music video (photographer Ebru Yildiz’ directorial debut) and stream the song everywhere. It’s a perfect example of how the songs on Door Girl carve out portraits of nightlife with reverberation and feedback, unveiling an expansive level of production quality through which even the perfectly-recorded snare drum is present and crisp.

Now he is performing his music with a small 4 piece group that includes Anton LaBree on bass and The Malcarney brothers on drums and guitar. His work has an offbeat, awful sense of humor and has been described as "night music". Dean Ween once told him his band was, "the best band...in the world."
Lightninging
Lightninging
Mark Cruttenden, Greg Foran, Greg O'neill, and Matt Williams are Lightninging - a handful of knuckleheads since old times that play 'American' rock and roll in the tradition of other 'American' rock and roll bands. Eyes closed, sad and sadistic, 'good loud' and guile-less music for having too good a time to. Ask them why they still do it. They'll tell you all about it.
