The Casket Girls


The Casket Girls is a new three-piece band hailing from Savannah, GA. Comprised of Ryan Graveface (Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Marshmallow Ghosts, Dreamend) who wrote and played all the song structures, and newcomers, Elsa and Phaedra Greene, who wrote and performed all of the vocals. On Sleepwalking, the band’s first release, the unique collaboration bears to be more than the sum of its parts – as the girls’ haunting and upbeat pop sensibility imbues Ryan’s inspired instrumental musings with such a sense of purpose that you must wonder how one could exist without the other.
The Casket Girls happened – as most things do – by accident. Ryan was visiting his future home, and in walking through one of the city’s 22 squares, he happened upon two girls playing autoharp and singing bizarre songs. He watched from afar, eventually approaching them with the idea for the band. Ryan had been (and still is) obsessed with the Shangri-las, and the sisters personified his desire of a far darker and more complex version of the 60s group.


The band’s debut album, Sleepwalking, came about rather quickly. Ryan sent Elsa and Phaedra 20+ songs he thought they could add to, and they came back with vocals for 15 of them. He asked TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion, Soft Drugs, Headphones) to throw down some substantial drums to contrast the weaker drum machines he had already recorded, and the album was finished. Sleepwalking has a number of exceptional tracks that are sure to be anything from radio hits to jams blasted in the privacy of a nerd’s home. “Heartless” is a driving, yet depressive disco. The title track is a sweeping epic with bleakly resolute lyrics.



Dreamend


“And the Tears Washed Me, Wave After Cowardly Wave” is Part 2 to “So I Ate Myself, Bite By Bite,” which came out in August of 2010. Part 1 is the true story of a normal man’s unraveling psyche and his grisly misdeeds. Years ago, I bought one of the real life serial killer’s journals at an auction in the woods. I was so moved by his seeming mediocrity, that I had to write about him. Part 1 covers a fairly large span of time in his life – childhood to his thirties. Part 2 takes place after his initial taste for blood and accurately ends with his death.


A million things have changed in my life since I recorded Part 1: I’ve changed cities, lost a ton of stock in a flood, am involved in a lawsuit with my former distro, opened a record store and lost someone incredibly close to me. In the move from Chicago to Savannah, the moving company I hired to haul my things not only charged me several thousand dollars more than my quote, but when the stuff finally arrived (3 weeks later than promised) a great deal of it was destroyed. My cello neck was snapped in half, my banjo was butchered, my expensive bell set was somehow obliterated, my organ’s insides were ripped to shreds, my main vocal mic was broken, not to mention all the damage they did to my non-musical possessions.

First woman game warden in Texas dies

On this day in 1966, rancher and writer Cordia Duke died. Born Cordelia Jane Sloan in Missouri in 1877, she taught school as a teenager in the Oklahoma Territory before moving to Sherman County, Texas, to teach in a one-room school near the XIT Ranch. She married Robert L. Duke, foreman for the Buffalo Springs division of the XIT Ranch, in 1907. In the ensuing years Cordia Duke chronicled the stories and activities of ranch hands and thus recorded a rapidly vanishing way of life.

Future film actress born in Houston

On this day in 1895, Florence Arto was born in Houston. She appeared in Texas filmmaker King Vidor's first two-reel film, In Tow, as well as in a documentary on the sugar industry. In 1915 she and Vidor were married and traveled to California in hopes of employment in the expanding film industry. A mature and elegant presence, Florence Vidor performed in fifty-nine feature films, often cast in upper-class or aristocratic roles. She and Vidor were divorced in 1924; violinist Jascha Heifetz became her second husband in 1928. Florence made her last film in 1929 and died in 1977.

Texas Bankers Association founded

On this day in 1885, the Texas Bankers Association, the oldest state bankers' association, was founded at Lampasas Springs (now Lampasas). Leading the promotion that brought thirty-one bankers from twenty-two Texas cities and towns was Frank R. Malone, cashier of the First National Bank in the host town, aided by E. M. Longcope, assistant cashier of the same bank. The banker-delegates convened at the colorful Park Hotel and selected as the organization's first president a Gonzales banker-lawyer, James Francis Miller, member of the United States Congress.

Denton TX updated Sat Jun 21 2008 7:24 am EDT
If you enjoy this lens or find it to be useful and informative, please rate it up at the very top of the page! Denton, Texas is a Main Street City that tops a triangle formed by itself, Ft. Worth and Dallas. This area is traditionally referred to as the Golden Triangle and our largest shopping mall shares this name.Established in 1857, Denton is the county seat of Denton County, and was named for John B. Denton. John Denton was a lawyer, preacher, and a soldier. His grave is on the courthouse lawn in the center of Denton's historic downtown square. The center-piece of the downtown square is the old Denton County Courthouse which was erected in 1896 and restored in 1987. The courthouse contains a museum highlighting historic photographs and artifacts from the City's founding to the present. Denton is the proud home of two public Universities; Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas, the 3rd largest university in the State of Texas, with a combined enrollment of approximently 40,000 students. Denton is also the home town of Grammy Award winning band Brave Combo and the Grammy Award winning 1 O'Clock Lab band as well as the former stomping grounds of UNT alumni Don Henley, Roy Orbison and Pat Boone.
