Brian McBride (Bell Gardens, Stars of the Lid) Live dublab Performance 12.21.05
In support of his 2005 album When the Detail Lost its Freedom for the ever-crucial Kranky records, Brian McBride of atmospheric ambient outfits Stars of The Lid and Bell Gardens dropped by dublab for a live rendition of his recent material. In his creative process, McBride recorded guitar, piano and numerous other sources to a keyboard sampler, then composed a batch of all-new works from the recordings. For his set at dublab, McBride triggered the samples live.
Bearing a likeness to the pristine beauty of untouched nature, McBride’s meditative session is an awe-inducing half-hour of placid sounds akin to Eno’s early ambient releases.
FROM THE VAULTS is an ongoing curation project produced by Ben Sinclair, resurfacing rare live performances and DJ sets recorded during dublab’s first ten years.

RODRIGUEZ - LIVE ON DUBLAB 11.21.08
Rodriguez is a legend we’ve been hooked on ever since Nobody turned us onto “Cold Fact,” his powerful statement of psych-soul from 1970. The album originally released on Sussex Records has risen from obscurity and recently been reissued by the wonderful folks at Light in the Attic Records. Rodriguez himself spent years off the general public’s radar but kept busy with local Detroit politics and playing shows in South Africa and Australia. For us in the northern hemisphere Rodriguez seemed like a powerful spirit of the past and was even rumored to be deceased. Thankfully he’s alive, vibrant and focused on sharing music. His visit to dublab marked his first ever west coast radio session and for this ocassion, he was backed by the always expanding talents Blank Blue. Dig this beautiful session.

Brooklyn’s Effie Briest comes to LA. An all women punk and pyschedelic band. Take a hint of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ rougher edges here, a pinch of Pink Floyd’s expansive prog-rock structures there.
