In Loving Memory of Annie Southworth

Annie

Panache lost one of our oldest agents and colleagues this past week, our dear friend Annie Southworth. Annie had worked with Panache for nearly a decade, and our friendship spanned over 15 years. When she joined forces with Panache, she brought such powerful wisdom, strength and experience to our very young fledgling booking agency. Together we became a power house of a booking team, that was being led by women. When she joined the agency she brought over bands like Oh Sees, No Means No, Kelley Stoltz, Fresh and Onlys and many others to our roster. She was a warrior for all womankind. Her utter love of music, vitality for life and resilient attitude helped form the foundation that Panache thrives on today. The world has suffered a great loss with Annie’s passing. Too soon. #fuck cancer #getyourbodieschecked #tellyourlovedonesyoulovethem

NPR's Best Albums of 2019

No music I heard this year convinced me I could hear my own cells dividing like Designer, Aldous Harding’s approachable, enigmatic third album. It’s lovely, but how do you explain it? The New Zealand-born Harding writes songs in familiar, folk-simple forms but appends them with odd angles that sometimes land like jokes and sometimes like warnings. Voices emerge from the depths to thread hints of peril or restlessness into the fabric of gentle melodies. Harding’s lyrics are filled with poetic images that slip away when you try to grasp them — she’s spoken about her desire to resist interpretation. (With her flexible but utterly distinctive voice, she sometimes reminds me of Cat Stevens, if you never had a single clue what Cat Stevens’ songs were about.) The title track stops and starts as if looking over its shoulder to see if you’re still there. “The Barrel” could be a consideration of motherhood, or it could be about creation and destruction, a tale of a minor deity, off in a corner of the universe, a god sinking her fingers into clay, shaping a new world by rules as she imagines them. All that inscrutability could be off-putting, but Designer is the kind of art that rewards questioning. It only frustrates if you demand answers. —Jacob Ganz

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard announce North American tour

Next spring, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard will play a trio of “marathon” three-hour sets that pull from their entire 15-album discography, including this year’s Fishing for Fishies and Infest the Rat’s Nest. The plan is to not repeat a single song, and even then they likely won’t cover their full catalog. Now it looks like they’ll have time to dig even deeper into their cumulative tracklist, as they’ve today announced a full North American tour.

MIKAL CRONIN BREAKS DOWN FIVE SONGS FROM HIS NEW ALBUM, SEEKER

Today, Mikal Cronin returns with the new record Seeker, an exciting document of change and reinvention. It notably breaks the California artist’s streak of self-titled albums, the last of which was 2015’s MCIII, and was also written when Cronin was at a fork in the road, personally and professionally. Staring down failed relationships, the working grind of being a musician and nagging writer’s block, he “needed to clean up, to stop leaning on external crutches to get through the anxiety,” Cronin says of that time. “I needed to grow the fuck up.”

Mikal Cronin Goes Into the Fire on “Seeker”

Although humans cause almost 90 percent of forest fires, when left to its own devices, nature will likewise purge overgrowth in a purifying blaze. Following the destruction is a period of rebirth, and it was with this Phoenix-like revival in mind that baroque garage-rocker Mikal Cronin descended south to demo his first album in four years. What he didn’t anticipate was that he’d actually confront the heat.

LA Times

Why you need to hear the album that took Gaby Moreno and Van Dyke Parks ten years to make

Mikal Cronin, “Seeker” (Merge Records). The new guitar-rock album from the native Southern Californian was born in solitude after a series of busted-up relationships and a creeping sense that, in his words, “I needed to clean up, to stop leaning on external crutches to get through the anxiety. I needed to grow the ... up.”

Inside Hook

How Mikal Cronin Rose From the Ashes to Create His Best Album to Date

For a time in the late-aughts and the first half of this decade, the Bay Area was home to one of the best, most vibrant rock scenes in the country — producing garage heroes like Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees (known now simply as Oh Sees), Hunx and His Punx, Girls, Shannon and the Clams and Mikal Cronin.

And then it wasn’t.

No Depression

Solitude the Source for Mikal Cronin’s ‘Seeker’

It’s a familiar story: A writer hits a wall and needs to seek out isolation to reconnect with their work. That cliché that path has become wasn’t lost on Mikal Cronin, even as he took it himself to begin the process of creating his first new record since 2015’s MCIII. After a steady streak of putting out a new album every other year since 2011, Cronin took his case of writer’s block and touring exhaustion out to a literal cabin the woods. What he found there were the songs that make up the appropriately titled Seeker, a heady collection of rock and roll and devastating solitude.

Consequence of Sound

Mikal Cronin Nails Gritty yet Symphonic Confessionals on Seeker

The Lowdown: Mikal Cronin has done wonderful work with artists like Charlie and the Moonhearts, Ty Segall, and Thee Oh Sees; yet, it’s often his solo material that shines brightest. His first three self-titled outings, released in 2011, 2013, and 2015, respectively, were endearing hodgepodges of indie, garage, psychedelic rock, and power pop that continually cemented him as one of today’s most characteristic singer-songwriters.
