You Don't Know Me

Here is what Regina had to say about Ben Folds, her upcoming TV appearence, and her NEW record...

"i recorded on Ben Folds' song "You don't know me". I knew of him, but I met him for the first time in the studio. He was immediately cool. Funny, nice, and also good. That's important if you are to sing with someone. You want them to be like that. His new record just came out and we are going to do the song together on Conan O'Brien, (who rules!... in a non- evil- power- hungry way), and i'm very excited. I may even get to be on TV standing and not sitting, for the first time ever... though i may get spooked last minute and beg Ben to let me sit behind the piano and hide as usual... Ah... i just made myself nervous and it's not till Oct. 2nd... yes... the feeling of utter fear and panic, so familiar and yet new and terrifying in its own special way every time...

So... a lot more things happened... a record has been started, and not finished yet... a rainy and incredibly happy show was played in Brooklyn, with Dan, Eleanor and Surai on strings, and special guests Only Son and Reggie Watts helpin' me out in the big big swimming pool (thank you everyone who sported the wet puppy look, stood in the rain and hung out! special thank you to Brumstix, i will have to write back to you dear peeps at some later point, when i can do it justice, but let me say it is such a thoughtful and touching and beautiful gift you made!!! i love that book...)Outlands festival was amazing, and i got to hear Tom Petty live for the first time ever... He and the heartbreakers were incredible...I will try to write more some other time... thank you for reading this long thing, if you were able to.... and i wish you all a wonderful, happy and healthy time out there... in the big big world..." from Regina's MySpace blog post

Railcars - Cities vs. Submarines


This Record is the product of Aria C Jalali, a Los Angeles native, Recording and Preforming as Railcars in the San Fransisco Bay Area is On the verge of an anticipated 5 song e.p. entitled Cities vs. Submarines. The e.p. will be released on Gold Robot Records Sept. 08, and the sound is "a ten minute journey into Aria Jalali's most vivid, reoccurring dreams. Railcars is an attempt to bring the images that have haunted Aria's mind to life using drum boxes, synths, and noise pedals with sentiments recreated in lyrical form."

Cities Vs. Submarines was recorded in Jamie Stewart's kitchen (pictured below). Sounding similar to Xiu Xiu, Handsome Furs and a meandering into Frog Eyes, the record is impressive enough to catch the ears of Dan Boeckner (Handsome Furs, Wolf Parade), who asked Railcars to join them on a stretch of their tour back in April 08. Jalali's vocals are soft and erratic and beautiful testing the occurring thought that good indie music can exist with elctro-sound.

Here is a catchy synthesizer driven ditty, Track {3} off the e.p. Cities vs. Submarines - Concrete Buildings

Pre-order the 7" e.p. on color vinyl on Gold Robot Records. Its limited to 500 copies so hurry up!!
