Death Vessel

THis is Death Vessel.  Well, sort of.  This is Joel Thibodeau.  He’s sort of Death Vessel’s unmovable mover.  He’s the songwriter and the provider of one beautiful singing voice.  He, along with The Figgs bassist Pete Donnelly, has crafted two elegent recordings under the name Death Vessel, the most recent of which,  Nothing is Precious Enough For Us, was put out on Sub Pop this past fall.

This is a video of the 4 piece (which is what we will be seeing this Thursday) performing the song Blowing Cave from the first Death Vessel album Stay Close (North East Indie, 2005).   As a note, the guy playing the electric guitar on the left side of your screen is Erik Carlson who performed just over a month ago under his project Area C (check out the post on These United States for April 27th).   Carlson is no longer in the band due to his focus on his own project, which coincidentally, had Joel as a member in the beginning as well.

Moving on….

Paper Castles

Paper Castles is a trio from Burlington including Paddy Reagan (guitar/vocals), Peter Negroponte (drums), and Ian Kovac (bass).  They play folk songs and noise, just to let you know.

This is a photo of a sketch by someone they know.

Burette Douglas

Burette is known for is his work in two of Burlington’s coolest bands: The Cush and Lonestar Chain.

He writes and sings for both bands, so it will be interesting to hear what he has to offer in the solo world.  I recommend keeping an eye out for either of his groups.  One very cool upcoming performance in town will be a show The Cush is doing with Lymbyc Systym on July 20th at the Monkey House.  SHould be sweet.
