Our House, in The Woods, MN

Bands and fans looking for fresh, never-heard “classic rock” music have just found it. Texas Highway Roadkill Music (a division of Lockard Direct Marketing, Inc., Houston, Texas), is proud to announce a previously unreleased box set of original music from the early 70’s. “Classic rock lovers will appreciate the reflections of some of their favorite 60’s-70’s bands.”
The band's name is the address of the infamous party house where they lived and recorded: Our House, Lake of the Woods, MN. Billed as an "international garage band" (from Indonesia, Haiti, and 5 States) that formed on the Canadian/U.S. border in the early 70's, the band decided to finish the songs, and for the first time release an entire box set of what they had written and recorded then. "We felt there are quite a few songs here that the world should have access to,” state band members and songwriters, Rick Stinson and Ron Sterlekar.
Three of the six tapes (now on CDs), were recently rediscovered after 40+ years in Los Angeles and Houston. Now known as The Lost Tapes series (Volumes 4, 5 & 6), they were remixed and produced in Houston, TX, with additional musicians also contributing and adding “Some amazing stuff”.
Having no record label, there were no rules. But because of how they were originally recorded (on 2- and 4-track recorders), and after decades of sitting in storage units, the songs definitely have that ‘garage band’ raw edge about them.
In the 70’s, the band tried out new material in Winnipeg, Manitoba, recorded it, forgot about it…and immediately started writing new stuff. The original recordings are now combined with new and cleaner tracks. “These albums are definitely for listeners who like exciting guitar solos,” says Stinson.
“We wrote and recorded much more than the initial 3 albums after we left Minnesota…and continued to write and improve as songwriters and producers,” adds Sterlekar. “The music covers the gamut from hard rock to bluesy love songs…and a bit of psychedelic. Most songs contain some very inspired guitar riffs. We feel there are some rock classics in here.” Stinson: “We believe the songs now sound the way they were originally ‘supposed’ to sound. Hopefully bands, looking for new and unexposed material, will make them even better.”
The focus will be on introducing the last three albums (The Lost Tapes), particularly Volumes 4 and 5 which are Welcome to The Party, Part One and Part Two. They also include a few remixes and live cuts from the three earlier albums.
“No record company was ever going to find us in that immense wilderness.” But it makes you wonder what could have been if they had been found.
Our House Lake of the Woods, MN EP Sampler (1970)
Rock Classics you won’t know the words to: An early 70’s international garage band that went totally under the radar, discovers tapes of their original songs – a cache of what could have been classic rock. Soaring lead guitar solos. Bluesy psychedelic rock like we almost remember it.

Airmodular   

Alternative Electronic Rock band Airmodular is Back!
with there new 5 song EP for International Release!
It begins with the in your face undeniable title track "Star" featuring Erin Holmes on guest lead vocals and killer fat beats by Producer Michael "Dirty Fingaz" Dabrowski.
One can't help but hum to the catchy chorus here.
Following "Star" Airmodular delivers the whimsical "Chimes and Games" with duet vocals by Cy Donovan and guest vocals by Tristn.
Track 3 takes a more darker sociopolitical approach with the beat heavy "Epiphany Plays". Its a commentary about Cyber Catfishing from the Catfishers perspective giving a somewhat somber feeling lyrically but with an upbeat pounding feel from Dirty Fingaz beats.
The return of guest vocalist Inna Tkach brings us to a more familiar duet between Inna and Cy in a call and answer form followed by a mantra like chant chorus of "Never Leave Never Will Leave!"
"Never Leave" echoes beats reminiscent of acts like LCD Soundsystem, NIN and Depeche Mode.
Finishing out the EP is the climactic Instrumental "I Wanna Be Rocky When I Grow Up".
You can't help but hear the 70s style Film score analog keyboard sounds resonating through out.
Take a listen! as this EP does not dissapoint.
Airmodular's "Star" is another 21st century record for the ages.....
