The Fayetteville-based art collective Art Amiss, in collaboration with KXUA 88.3 FM and the Plastic Magic radio show, is releasing a compilation of 11 tracks of early '90s Arkansas rock bands. The compilation, called "Natural State Nineties" will be available via the Art Amiss bandcamp page at 5 p.m. today. Assembled from Plastic Magic host Phillip Eubanks's record collection, the compilation features Cosmic Giggle Factory, Dali Automatic, Oedipus Cat Pharm, 2 Much TV, The Delta Angels, Baby Self-Hate, Grass, Shindig Shop, Blue Boy Orlis and the Stompers, Tissue Culture, and The Pranks.

I'm going to have to admit ignorance here since I didn't spend much time in Arkansas back in the twentieth century, but color me intrigued.

From the Art Amiss website, here's the details:

Listening to the compilation is free, but those who choose to make a $5 or more donation to Art Amiss will be able to download the songs in a number of high quality audio formats and will receive a 17-page digital booklet featuring band lineups, original song release details, and scans of original release artwork, photographs, and concert flyers.

  • Of Montreal talks 'Little Rock' and why they're coming back after all

    April 15, 2014
    Of Montreal is playing at the Rev Room on May 2, which might come as a surprise to anyone who's ever heard their song "Little Rock," a bonus track from their 2008 album "Skeletal Lamping." A short acoustic demo, the song references a terrible experience the band had here in town and ends with singer Kevin Barnes's solemn promise, "The only guarantee is that we're never coming back to Little Rock." As the music fades out, he clarifies: "No, we're never coming back to your shitty little town." /more/

    April 15, 2014
    Last month, the Conway Chamber of Commerce announced that MC Hammer would headline its 2014 Toad Suck Daze festival on May 3. In an important and fascinating development, the Chamber of Commerce has now added another Hammer appearance to the event's itinerary. He'll apparently help judge the "LaunchPad" start-up competition, which will award a $15,000 prize to one of ten eligible Arkansas entrepreneurs. /more/
  • Live Review: Tech N9ne and friends at the Rev Room

    April 11, 2014
    During a brief interlude during his powerhouse set last night at the Rev Room, rapper Tech N9ne posed a rhetorical query to the packed house: “Isn't it cool how all us strange people found each other? Here ... in Strangeland?” I may be paraphrasing here, as my hearing and mental faculties were overwhelmed by the outpouring of approving caterwauls and whoop whoops from the assembled legion of face-painted Juggalos, hip hop heads, Affliction T enthusiasts and creatively dancing white girls. /more/
  • Let's make a massive Spotify playlist of the best Arkansas music

    April 3, 2014
    The idea is simple. Add five (or fewer) songs with Arkansas connections. They could be your favorite songs. They could be songs you've been listening to lately. It doesn't matter. The goal is simply to gather as much good Arkansas-related music into one playlist. /more/
  • Download 'Trap Conversations,' a new mixtape by Little Rock's Cool Chris

    April 3, 2014
    Today at noon, Cool Chris, of Little Rock's Young Gods of America (YGOA) collective, released his new tape "Trap Conversations," which opens on a vintage Christopher Walken sample from "King of New York" and is mostly produced by fellow Little Rock native Fresco Grey. /more/
  • Photos: Amasa Hines live at South on Main

    April 3, 2014
    South on Main was full last night—not just the tables, but the spaces between and around the tables, the nooks and corners and bar-stools. It was hot, that's how full it was. Amasa Hines played two sets with a brief intermission, performing songs from their debut record "All the World There Is" and a couple of new tracks on the side. For anyone who missed it, Times photographer Matt Amaro came through with these photos. /more/
  • Jazz in the Park 2014 kicks off tonight

    April 2, 2014
    Speaking of jazz: Anyone not going to see Amasa Hines or Merle Haggard tonight should come to the History Pavilion at Riverfront Park, where Dizzy 7 will be performing at the first night of this year's Jazz in the Park series. The series will feature a free outdoor jazz performance every Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. /more/
  • New Coltrane live release to feature Pharoah Sanders

    April 2, 2014
    The great, cosmic tenor sax pioneer and Little Rock-native Pharoah Sanders will appear (playing sax and flute) on the latest John Coltrane live reissue to be released by Impulse! & Resonance Records in September, according to Pitchfork. The record is a previously (mostly) unavailable 90-minute concert featuring John and Alice Coltrane, Sanders and Rashied Ali at Temple University on November 11, 1966, and will be released on CD and LP. /more/
  • Here are some photos of Cher

    March 31, 2014
    Times photographer Brian Chilson braved the Verizon Arena Friday night to bring us these photos of Cher, and they are bright and colorful and strange. She's on some sort of tribal, Caribbean tip, featuring back-up dancers with shields. I wasn't there, but I obviously should have been. More after the jump: /more/
  • Arkansas Times Premiere: Download Pepperboy's new mixtape, '3 Volleys'

    March 26, 2014
    Pepperboy is a unique presence in Little Rock rap, a local street rapper from the city's south side who fell headlong into Lil B's weirdo-visionary orbit and resurfaced a changed man. The Southern outlier in the Bay Area-based Green Ova Underground, and one of the few really enduring personalities of the cloud rap moment, Pepperboy dependably and effortlessly brings to his projects what so many local rappers struggle with—a distinct voice. /more/

  • The lobbying effort to stop Tax Day from being easier for taxpayers

    I wrote last week the fact that the IRS could easily auto-prepare personal income taxes for American taxpayers. Auto-preparation could would save Americans $2 billion in tax preparation fees per year and 225 million hours per year in time spent preparing our taxes. But tax preparers like TurboTax make big profits off of the current hassle and form an unholy lobbying alliance with anti-tax crusaders like Grover Norquist, who want who want taxes to be as annoying as possible so that people will be more likely to oppose taxes. A great piece in ProPublica does some digging on this scandalous lobby's efforts at an astroturf campaign against a simpler filing system, and reports that a lobbying group linked to Intuit, the maker of TurboTax, is involved in trying to encourage community leaders to write Op-eds and letters to Congress (all of them remarkably similar in content and language), claiming that "return-free filing" would hurt the poor.
