SWAYING TUESDAYS are a pop music firestorm. Born amidst the humid summers and harsh winters of the Great Lakes, SWAYING TUESDAYS are a part of an unstoppable indie explosion that is streamlining the continent (i.e. Best Coast, Beach House, Smith Westerns). Performing every sleek nightclub to lounge hide-a-way in their path, these lads promise to charge every cell and ion between your ears. Reluctantly lead by Brent Lee with his telecaster and Ryman Theatre croon, this new tunesmith proves there is still a place for sidewinding optimism amongst a sea of melancholy. In the CBGB jacket stands the vocalist, his frantic half-brother Greg. On drums sits the impeccable Alex Cockburn, adding in elements of world-beat to their rural grooves. On the bass stands Scott Walker, an alley ruffian that is always quick with a joke and to light up your smoke. Lastly, on the keys is Sean Worster: a classically trained wizard on the keys. Together they make SWAYING TUESDAYS, a radio box healing explosion that can be heard all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
Playing music with karma in mind, because what goes around, comes around.
If we have fun playing, You have fun listening and dancing. If you have fun listening and dancing, We have fun playing.

Brian - Bass,

The Communist Necessity Book Launch
The Communist Necessity is a polemical interrogation of the practice of "social movementism" that has enjoyed a normative status at the centres of capitalism. Despite the fact that the name "communism" has been reclaimed by a variety of important intellectuals, J. Moufawad-Paul argues that, due to a failure to grapple with the concrete questions connected to historical moments of actually making revolution, movementist praxis remains hegemonic. More of a philosophical intervention than a historiography or political economy, The Communist Necessity engages in a quick and pointed manner with a variety of authors and tendencies including Alain Badiou, Jodi Dean, the Invisible Committee, Tiqqun, Théorie Communiste, and others. Moufawad-Paul argues that a refusal to recognize contemporary revolutionary movements from the 1980s to the present results in the reification of a capitalist “end of history” discourse within this movementist conceptualization of theory and practice.
