March 20, 2019 (Wednesday) - Many thanks to the great Thayer Sarrano for her song "The Eternal," and her coterie of mavens, including here most pertinently Natalie Neal of Namesake Content, whose filmic work brings light (and Drop-D-type darkness (thanks, Courtney E. Smith, for the riff-ic phrase)) to a freshly-released Murk™-rock video. We are very honored to have it premiere in the fine pages of POST-PUNK.com, which should help newcomers to the aural art that is Sarrano better understand her musical genealogy. "The Eternal" is but a meager slice from the larger sonic slab goodness that is the album -- Wings Alleluia -- out March 29th. Looking for some vinyl? Pre-orders can now be placed on Bandcamp. We will have more to say in the days to come. Now it is more important to get this word out in a timely manner.
March 16, 2019 (Saturday) - A brief hiatus -- because everyone needs one from time to time -- and then an appearance, by Thayer Sarrano, in Austin, in a land called Texas, as part of the extravaganza that is South by Southwest. This particular showcase -- Athens in Austin -- boasts a bevy of sponsors, but the prime mover here would be the grandeur that is the Georgia Theatre. This show gets live. It gets rowdy, by way of The SideBar, where, also playing, will be: Bambara, Glove, Five Eight, The Medium, Saint Pé, Los Coast, Surfbort, Caulfield, Faux Ferocious, Katie Schecter, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, The Artisanals, and Wieuca. Thayer Sarrano last made this southwesterly trek to Austin in 2017. Speaking of the Georgia Theatre, we never fatigue of pointing our dear readers in the direction of the live performance video of the Thayer Sarrano Acoustic Chamber at that venerable venue, transpiring a near year ago, in the month of May.

March 1, 2019 (Friday) - A new month. A new single. Another show. A treasure trove of pictures. Some new. Some old(er). Today, this first day of the month, the new single "The Eternal" of Thayer Sarrano is up. It's running. It's streaming. And while you're out there, basking in its atmospherics, why not place your pre-orders for the new album -- Wings Alleluia -- out March 29th. That alone makes for a "singular" day. Tonight, Thayer Sarrano rounds out her Tour of the West with an easterly visit to the DKDC in Memphis, Tennessee. Also at DKDC will be Yesse Yavis and Crystal Shrine. With all this freshness in the air, what better time to inject some new photographs into the media stream?
Curtis Wayne Millard Studio
Beyond working with the musical créatrice who is Sarrano, another wonder of the biz would have to be all the other creatives that cross our path -- photographers, videographers, musicians, engineers, etc. As you might (or should) imagine, we've got some new things in the pipeline, all scheduled for release quite soon. For now, let's salute the photographic art of two mavens whom we've come to know over these last years -- Curtis Wayne Millard -- and last months -- Alysse Gafkjen. We've running a bit behind schedule, but only by a few years. Yes, we've recently created some new Thayer Sarrano Galleries on our website, with contributions from these fine artists. If you're a Sarrano sophisticate, you'll certainly recognize more than a few. We've even thrown some as yet unreleased gems into the mix.
