Teaser: M9A9 – A new soundclip track

This is not much more than a “proof of concept” track. I’m playing with layers of effects and trying to determine what the right amount of noise and distortion is before it becomes too much.

Modulated noise, just to give you a taste

Introducing M9A9

The M9/A9 is a major motorway in Scotland connecting the cities of Edinburgh and Inverness.

M9A9 is a brainchild, connecting classic British shoegaze and Old World celtic music.

M9A9 is what happens if Capercaillie kidnapped Robin Guthrie to go hang out with The Jesus And Mary Chain in Kevin Shields’ basement.

Asa Milbankx and friends: Halloween Show!

Flyer for the 2010 Halloween show

Asa Milbankx with Matt McNiff and Ali Abol live at the Lovin' Cup Café in Brooklyn

Asa Milbankx, Matt McNiff and Ali Abolghasemi are returning to the Lovin’ Cup Café in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Come down and see us at the Lovin’ Cup, 93 North 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY. 9:30PM on Friday, October 29, 2010. Wear a costume if you want!

Thank you

We had a wonderful turnout at the show on Saturday at the Lovin’ Cup Café. Thanks to everyone who showed up to see the first Asa Milbankx show. Asa, Ali Abolghasemi and Matt McNiff were electrified, due to a fault in the club’s wiring system, but also due to the enthusiastic and supportive crowd. Thanks also to the staff of the Lovin’ Cup. We are working on scheduling more shows for the rest of 2010 and into 2011, so stay tuned.

Asa Milbankx + Breaking Bad = ??

Here is something to tide you over until the new singles from White Buffalo, Asa Milbankx, and Ghost Quarter: this is Asa’s own version of the Breaking Bad theme song. Actually, it’s just Asa’s new vocal over the instrumental track from the TV show. Enjoy!

New single alert: “We Never Kiss” by White Buffalo is on its way

The debut single from White Buffalo is Mount Valley’s next release! “We Never Kiss” is the first single from Ali Abolghasemi (Analog Birds, Asa Milbankx) under the alias White Buffalo. It features the talents of Asa Milbankx, Ryan Weiner (Asa Milbankx, the Latters, Daddy Moitch) and Collin DeJoseph (the Latters, Daddy Moitch) as well. Stay tuned – this one is going to be available free of charge on Mountvalley.net before it goes to the pay services (iTunes, Amazon, et cetera.)

EDIT: White Buffalo is no longer the name of the artist for this single; the name is in use by someone else. “WNK” will finally be out during the first half of 2012 so watch this space.

New material

Good day, ladies and gentlemen. We’ve gotten a great response for the Asa Milbankx single (now available on iTunes and Amazon as well) and we’re hard at work on more content for Mount Valley – the new White Buffalo single is on its way, as well as another Asa single to help you combat the heat – somehow. Stay tuned!
