No, really.

Interview with Bryk in today’s Daily Tar Heel.

Bryk is chuffed to be opening for T-Dot local heroes The Golden Dogs at Local 506 next Monday Nov. 19th.

In Kevin Bacon terms: Bryk played in The American Flag with Paul Aucoin, who produced the Golden Dogs new CD “Big Eye Little Eye”, which was released in Canada by True North Records (label home of former Bryk drummer Howie Beck) and in the US by local NC label Yep Roc. Dave and Jessica from The Dogs sing backups on The Bicycles “The Good The Bad and the Cuddly”, which was produced by… Bryk.

Bryk on CBC, Lovers Leap Reviews

Bryk’s interview with Shelagh Rogers will actually be on the air the morning of Labour Day Monday, Sept. 3rd, not Friday 31st as previously noted here.

Bryk has a nice little article in this week’s Toronto Eye Weekly.

Review of Discount Store (and a stream) in last week’s Indy

A Discount Store review, this one from the Daily Tar Heel’s Diversions Blog. (Dan will be playing the Diversions Party at Local 506 with Schooner and Red Collar September 29th.)

Corey and Dan on the Radio this week…

Some more cool radio interviews this week:

Dan and Corey will be live on Toronto’s Commercial Alternative Powerhouse 102.1 The Edge (us old timers still call it CFNY) this Friday around 6:15 PM to talk about their alleged careers and their “big Toronto show” at C’est What? (also this Friday, starting around 10 PM, with Noyan Hilmi of Five Blank Pages representing for the 905).

This is been a serious life-long dream of Bryk’s, as they will chat with Toronto indie music icon Dave Bookman, and have promised not to swear as much as they do on their records. CFNY has a live stream for you out-of-towners.

Dan will also be the interview guest of Shelagh Rogers(!) on CBC Radio One’s Sounds Like Canada this Friday morning at 10 AM EST. Tune in across Canada on CBC Radio One, or listen on the internets.

Through the elfin magic of ISDN (we prefer to think it’s “the pixies”), Dan sat down at WUNC’s studios in Chapel Hill and had a nice chat with Shelagh, who’s in Vancouver. How cool is that?

Happy Independence Day!

melt the guns!!

Dan Bryk is one of the subjects profiled in a Fourth of July-themed article in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Independent Weekly. Writes Grayson Currin:

“Here—during this most paramount of American holidays—we profile two local musicians whose recent addition to the Triangle has added new questions, sounds and ideas, and another, whose progressive bent on an old form proves that molds are meant to be re-imagined…”

Dan Bryk interview in GloNo

Pop Psychology, geddit?

There’s a sweet new Dan Bryk review and article over at Chicago rawkzine Glorious Noise today, marking the return of the “Bryk by Bryk” pun in at least one article per bi-annum.

The article reviews Bryk’s recent NYC set, and discusses his immigration and “career” travails, the outlook for Urban Myth, and since we haven’t formally announced it here yet… Bryk’s brand new green card. (i.e.; there’s gonna be some b-r-y-k in the u-s-a…)

To sweeten the deal, there’s The Next Best Thing, an exclusive love-letter from the forthcoming Pop Psychology. Does Bryk finally bring the rock? You decide.

Lee on WFMU

lee_rooftop

Lee Feldman marks his return to the venerable studio of New Joisey’s mighty freeform station WFMU this coming Monday.

Lee live on WFMU (91.1 FM)
Irene Trudel’s show
Monday, March 19th
3 – 6 pm
Interwebcast live at www.wfmu.org  

WFMU’s website says: Evoking platitudes from reviewers such as, “Harry Nilsson meets Fats Waller,” and “Randy Newman by way of Lou Reed and Paul Simon,” Lee Feldman is a very entertaining singer, pianist, and songwriter. His third album, “I’ve Forgotten Everything” is, according to Stereophile Magazine, “unlike anything else in contemporary pop.” Lee is also the creator of STARBOY, an animated musical about a 2-dimensional superhero who lives with his uncle, a Mathematician. Lee brings his trio to WFMU.

Hell, if we were to write a press release, it would probably go something like that!

(FYI, Dan Bryk’s recent WFMU appearance (on Pseu Braun’s show) has been archived for your listening plaisir here).
