In the immortal words of Hawkwind, "Space is Deep." And as such, it is ripe for exploration, which is exactly what Little Rock trio Mothwind is all about.

Like contemporaries such as The Sword, Mothwind is clearly heading for the furthest reaches of the universe of heavy riffage. The band's lineup — including members of Vore, The Year of the Tiger and Holy Angell — bodes well for such a venture, but if you're in need of sonic affirmation, check out the track "Exo-Atmospheric Kill Vehicle."

  • Guest Mix: Pepperboy

    September 29, 2014
    Here's a collection of 9 records that's really had an effect on my career. These records have touched me in many ways ... some are very personal and even disturbing at times when I hear them, because of certain situations I been through where those records were playing in the background. I'm proud to share this 9 track soundtrack with Arkansas Times because these records mean so much to me and I hope you enjoy!!! /more/
  • Guest Mix: Andrew Morgan

    September 23, 2014
    This mix came about like most do: I grabbed a stack of records — some recent acquisitions some not so — that included tunes I'm currently obsessed with, put a tape in the deck, started mixing without a plan, and then tried to stop by the time the tape ran out. /more/
  • New music from Bombay Harambee, 'Check, Check, Checkmate'

    September 23, 2014
    Little Rock's Bombay Harambee, who played in this year's Times showcase and released a great EP in February, were nice enough to give us an early copy of their new single, "Check, Check, Checkmate." /more/
  • New mixtape from Lo Thraxx, 'Deep Waters'

    September 18, 2014
    Little Rock's Lo Thraxx has been talking up his next release, "$harkansas," for some time now, but this morning he abruptly dropped a different mixtape altogether, "Deep Waters," apparently a prequel or, in his words, "lay up drills" to warm up for the real thing. /more/
  • Guest Mix: The Coasts

    September 17, 2014
    In addition to the new and amazing Ty Segall album, here are some songs that we're currently listening to and passing back and forth as we're working on songs for our new LP. Some of them are real jammers and some are more low key, so just sit back and let the vibes do their thing. And don't think about the fact that we just said "vibes." /more/
  • Live Review: Seattle Hip-Hop Duo Shabazz Palaces Brings Sonic Attack to Rev Room

    September 17, 2014
    A crowd of about 60 (impressive for a Monday night) gathered at the Rev Room to be collectively slain by Shabazz Palaces’ deadly combo of droning bass, carefully layered sonic textures, live polyrhythmic percussion, and sharp rhymes. It was a flawless victory. /more/
  • Live Review: Eric Church and Dwight Yoakam at Verizon

    September 15, 2014
    Apparently Dwight Yoakam’s acting career is sufficiently slack enough that Friday night saw him opening for bro-country kingpin Eric Church at Verizon Arena. Hollywood is taking Yoakam in small enough doses (he has a recurring part on CBS’s “Under the Dome”) that he can lend his considerable talents to country music, which currently can use any kind of flavor it can get. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Adam Faucett

    September 8, 2014
    For the last seven years it seems most of my time has been spent in my van. Before that it seems most of it was spent on a platform in Mars like temperatures waiting on the blue line. Before that it seems much of it was in my kitchen doing paintings for school. My point is, the songs best suited for a hangover are best suited for the Snake. /more/

  • How the South became dead red

    Good piece in Politico from Stanford sociology professor Doug McAdam on the roots of our modern partisan divide. McAdam tells the familiar story of how the South flipped, as yellow dog Democrats in the old Confederacy abandoned the party in the wake of the Civil Rights movement.

  • Fayetteville City Clerk's office certifies signatures — civil rights ordinance will go to a public vote

    The Fayetteville City Clerk's office has certified that enough signatures were gathered to trigger a special election on Fayetteville's new civil rights ordinance, the Fayetteville Flyer reports. The effort to force a popular vote on the ordinance, led by a Repeal 119, a church-led group, gathered 5,714 signatures. Petitioners needed 4,905; the City Clerk's office began certifying the signatures last week and stopped at the end of the day Friday once enough signatures had been validated. The ordinance to discourage discrimination in housing and employment passed in the City Council 6-2 last month. The vote came after 10 hours of discussion, with many conservatives furious because the classes of people protected included gay and transgender people.
  • Tom Cotton's evasive maneuvering on the Farm Bill

    Rep. Tom Cotton continues to take a ribbing for his recent ad attempting cover on his vote against the Farm Bill (Cotton, you'll remember, claimed that Obama "hijacked" it and turned it into a food stamp bill; factcheckers pounced). Cotton is trying to have his row crops and eat them too, claiming he supports farm subsidies while voting against them.
