DEAKIN +++++++ PRINCE RAMA++++++DOLDRUMS
DEAKIN (from Animal Collective)
From Tiny Mix Tapes:
"Most of our readers know Josh Dibb as Deakin, Animal Collective's longtime cohort, whose guitar playing and contributions can be traced to the band's earliest inception. There's no denying the very special hand he's had in landmark albums like Feels, Strawberry Jam, and even the recent visual spectacle ODDSAC, to name a few.
It's obvious within only a few minutes of talking to him that commercial success and critical acclaim are hardly first and foremost on his mind. As he points out, keeping "Whatever [AC is] working on [...] the purest thing that it can be" is not only the AC artistic method, it happens to be the main reason Dibb creates at all.
After performing a handful of select live solo shows, Dibb is currently "honing" his solo material for an upcoming Paw Tracks album. I'm pleasantly caught off-guard when Dibb — a real talker — is more than gracious as he opens up about his songwriting process, his excursion to Africa, the pitfalls of remixing for money, MPC samplers, and, yes, even the scoop on the dreaded Animal Collective "hiatus.""
PRINCE RAMA (Brooklyn)
Brooklyn-based psychedelic rock trio Prince Rama (formerly known as Prince Rama of Ayodhya) formed in 2007 around the talents of Michael Collins and sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson. The trio members, who were raised in a Hare Krishna-centric Florida community, met in high school and began their musical journey as a straight-up punk-pop outfit, but a year in a Boston art school, as well as a steady diet of Amon Düül, Animal Collective, and Gang Gang Dance records, helped them make the transition from wannabe skatepunks to cosmic purveyors of tribal, mantra-heavy, lo-fi psychedelic pop. The group’s debut collection, Threshold Dances, appeared in 2008 on the British-based Cosmos label. Zetland arrived in 2009, followed in 2010 by Shadow Temple, which was co-produced by Animal Collective’s Deakin and Avey Tare

"J'aime ton t-shirt," they say. "Merci. Je l'ai fait myself," comes your reply. A sequence just in dreams thus far? Sigh.
It needn't be though after joining Ari in the workshop for an afternoon of silk screening. By the end of the session, you will have transformed your favourite black and white photo into your favourite new shirt or poster or [insert favourite favourite]. A few preparatory steps are required before the day, we can get started as soon as you let us know you'd like to play.
