A new and improved Max 

Burt Taggart reports that Max Recordings' website is back up and running, and, as you'll notice, is improved. Listen to Ho-Hum's “Holy Smoke,” The Moving Front's “Chain Letters” and Tel Aviv's “No Worries,” among other songs on Max Radio while previewing upcoming shows and purchasing albums on iTunes or through Pay Pal. On the home page, you'll find the latest news: Max Recordings will partner with the Little Rock Zoo for a Rock & Roar show on Saturday, Sept. 8, with performances by The Easys and The Good Fear; expect “Lean Times” from Grand Serenade, “Economy of Motion” from The Reds and “S/T” from The Good Fear this fall, and Pants' “Last One Leaving” (2005) is now available on iTunes. As expected, the site's still got a sleek look with work by local photographers Matthew Martin and Jim Hunnicutt getting top billing. Check out a fancier Max here: www.maxrecordings.com.

Over the weekend, Isaac Alexander went into Jason Weinheimer's Lucky Dog Studio to put finishing touches on Big Silver's fourth full-length album, a follow-up to last year's “Afterlife” (tentatively titled “Tributary”). Singer-songwriter Alexander, Bart Angel (drums), Mike Nelson (bass), Brad Williams (guitar) and Shelby Smith (piano) holed up at Darian Stribling's Blue Chair Studio in Austin, Ark., to record the tracks. After being mixed at Mike Nelson's place, the album will be handed over to Max Recordings and released as early as September.

Rumor has it that something's brewing among band members of The Moving Front, who backed out of next week's KABF benefit show. The Easys and 607 are still on the bill for the Friday, Aug. 17, show at Sticky Fingerz.
