Blake Lake Solo Residency

April 29, 2010

Our very own Blake Lake has started a weekly residency at 88 Orchard in the Lower East Side of NYC. Come by on Tuesdays between 8:30 – 10pm to hear him play his own take on some classic covers as well as some abridged AKUDAMA favorites. Always Acoustic, usually no more than 4 strings on the guitar. Plus, he will be selling an exclusive covers album that you can only purchase in person for $5. Buy him a drink, or at least say hello! – Directions HERE

Free Download Expired – Please listen/purchase below

01. People*
02. Everywhere At Once**
03. Barbershop*
04. Turtle Tan*

Akudama’s October EP of the month is entitled “the flophouse sessions”, a collection of live songs recorded during a handful of visits to the living room of Somerville’s most hospitable duo, Andy and Jen. We handpicked the most bearable takes to throw along side yr eardrum for whenever you deem desirable (Oughta be often fellas n’ fillets). Feel free to peruse our entire flophouse archive HERE, or, if you want my advice on time better spent, check out Rammstein’s new hit song, “pussy”. It’s as shocking as rubbing yr teddy bear on a carpet, and as interesting as the blog post below.

>>Keep yr ear to the ground for upcoming studio versions of People, Everywhere At Once, & Turtle Tan<<

We’ve got another exclusive pre-Lady Gaga video, a Zeppelin cover no less… featuring Calvin (of Akudama) on guitar. Catch it before Perez Hilton or your local librarian does!

Where Akudama and Lady Gaga Coalesce

September 14, 2009

Before the paparazzi, Akudama’s very own Calvin Pia had been blessed with the opportunity to take the stage with mega-star-to-be, Lady Gaga. The video might be a little toned down for all you “Gagas” out there, and what I mean by that is, she’s sitting there singing some bullshit song you’ve never heard as opposed to standing there, with no pants on, singing some bullshit song you hear everyday blaring out the window of a guapo’s Jetta, or from a muffled speaker above the chip isle in any Duane Reade (pronounced Dwan-Aye Re-odd-Aye).

The performance is as entertaining as watching Henry Fonda pick blueberries, which is honest to god a ten out of ten by Bitter End standards. Enjoy?

Here’s a video of “Thumbelina”, a new track of ours, live at Bedford Avenue’s very own Spike Hill. We’re in the process of recording this tune, along with eight others, so keep yr ear to ground folks!
*Sorry for the random sideways shot, someone was krazy!
