The Bandana Splits are the doo-wop inspired singing trio of Lauren Balthrop, Annie Nero, and bowling champion Dawn Landes.

The song comes from their self-titled debut LP produced by… More »

The ‘Gum Bowl: The Outtakes Reel

After rolling out this video series in which we met the bowlers, watched the first round of the tournament and championship match, there’s only one respectable place to go: all the tequila shots and genitalia euphemisms that for some reason our video editors felt weren’t germane to clips about charitable bowling.

The ‘Gum Bowl: The Championship Match

So you met the bowlers as they met each other and their teams, started talking trash and getting trashed. Then there was the riveting first round matchups and the losers very graciously losing (especially Larry Murphy). Now it’s the CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH, for all the marbles. Or at least, the main marble. And the festive trophy… More »

Elvis Perkins In Dearland/Dawn Landes @ The Bell House, Brooklyn 4/23/10

The last time we brought you photos from an Elvis Perkins show was in December at the Bowery Ballroom during a stretch of particularly grey weather. This weekend things were sunnier, despite a few clouds and people still singing about “Doomsday.” Perkins has grown out his beard and added camo to his increasingly countrified ensemble. More »

New Dawn Landes Video – “Young Girl” (Stereogum Premiere)

This is a decidedly different look for Dawn Landes, the country-folk artist that first popped up here with her bluegrass cover of “Young Folks.” There she was apple-cheeked and winsome; “Young Girl” showcases a glittery-cheeked, gritty, and glam side to the 28-year-old’s stylings, out of step with most everything else on her third LP SweetMore »
