This Olde Shed with Bob Allen Shabb Episode 1: Drawers
Aux Send Episode 038: Houdan the Mystic
The good people over at Aux Send have released the third episode, Houdan the Mystic, in the Subterranea Collective mini-series, filmed in one day with Nelly Kate, Good Day RVA, and Luke Rabin. For those unfamiliar, Aux Send is a regional show airing on various PBS stations in the commonwealth (not Richmond, YET). It profiles local and regional musicians and bands by taping a few song performances and interview. Get to know the three dudes in Houdan the Mystic as they discuss meeting strangers in the woods, their first band in 5th grade, and more. Their incredible songs reflect the individuals’ respective chops, and clearly these guys are connected on several different levels. Lengthy and progressive, the tracks allow for a variety of rhythms, while still leaving a lot of room between their sounds. We can’t help but love this band.
The other two episodes filmed via Subterranea, Dave Watkins and Way, Shape, or Form, appear below:
Dave Watkins is an experimental music genius. It only takes witnessing one of his performances to realize Watkins is a master of zen. We had the opportunity to host a show (Sounds of RVA Showcase @ Bogart’s feat. Hoax Hunters, Dave Watkins, and The Dirty Picture Show) in which Watkins led the Colloquial Orchestra, a group of musicians who collectively improvise at a moment’s notice. Combining the dulcitar (dulcimer + guitar), percussion, and electronics, Watkins orchestrates a rich jam like a luthier electronics mastermind. He plays in an open room that looks like so many fan apartments, you might as well have been there.
Way, Shape, or Form shares band members Reid and Ethan with Houdan the Mystic. Experimental and progressive elements combine with glitchy electronics at opportune moment. The post-math tunes reel for many shoegaze minutes. Get the scoop behind the band’s name and more!
Keep your eyes peeled for the next installment of Aux Send: Fourteen Hundred Miles!
Check out our brother-band, Houdan the Mystic’s live performance on Aux Send, as well as the amazing Dave Watkins and oh yeah! We did one too! All definitely worth watching!
