Gold Dust – “Brookside Cemetery Blues”

You’ve heard of the heavy music to shoegaze pipeline. How about the heavy music and shoegaze to folk pipeline? Stephen Pierce, the Easthampton, MA-based musician who plays hardcore in Ampere and shoegaze in Kindling, has a new solo project called Gold Dust born out of his longtime love of ’60s and ’70s folk-rock. A self-titled album is arriving at the end of the week, and we’ve already heard lovely early tracks “Oh Well” and “Into Clouds.” Today, we’re getting one more, the gorgeously warm “Broo...

Gold Dust – “Run Into Clouds”

You will remember the name of… Gold Dust. The Massachusetts musician Stephen Pierce has made music as a member of bands like Ampere and Kindling. (His press photo might convince you that he’s also made music as a member of the Backstreet Boys, but no, that’s not AJ McLean. Different guy.) These days, Pierce also makes gauzy, ’60s-inspired folk-rock under the name Gold Dust.

New podcast: "Burning Man Live" offers stories from its community

Black Rock City is off this year, but Burning Man in the multiverse is on! Kindling is the Project's new portal for virtual Burning Man experiences, and one of them is a podcast. Burning Man Live is three episodes in: Meet the people who make Burning Man happen, beyond the desert and out in the world. Artists, activists, and innovators. Builders and Burners, freaks and fools. Burning Man floats on a sea of stories, and the Burning Man LIVE podcast is a plucky little boat with a microphone.

Kindling – “Better World”

Pumped-up shoegaze outfit Kindling are on the cusp of their upcoming LP, Hush. Today they release the third single from the album, following the quick-burning "Destroy Yrself" and the sweet-and-fuzzy "For Olive."

Kindling – “Destroy Yrself”

For a few years now we've been fans of Massachusetts shoegazers Kindling and of 6131, the California record label that introduced us to Julien Baker and Thunder Dreamer among other rising stars. So it's cool to see that particular band and that particular label link up, like when two friends from separate social circles … More »

Kindling – “Weightlessly” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last November, Massachusetts rock band Kindling released their scuzzy shoegaze EP Galaxies, a four-track effort so humidly blurry it felt like moshing in a grease fire. The riffs were chunky, the high end sounded like it was melting into the rhythm section, and the vocals were seductively indecipherable, turning a conglomeration of sounds into … More »

Don Giovanni's Asbury Park festival announces lineup (PS Eliot reunion, Ought, Mirah, Girlpool, Screaming Females & more)

The festival aims to be "held in direct opposition to the apolitical sludge that has come to pass as 'indie' and that has nothing to do with operating independently."
