Hey, maybe MAINE PUBLIC BROADCASTING does know that there’s music being made this century! MPBN Television has added THE ACADIA SESSIONS, a documentary series examining bands recording music at ACADIA RECORDING COMPANY, and it will air at 11 pm on Saturdays, beginning May 8. There are 13 episodes planned for the first season. The series is the baby of Acadia’s GINA AND MARC BARTHOLOMEW, PETRA SIMMONS, and DAVID CAMLIN, and they’ll celebrate scoring a slot on MPBN with a show April 1 that will feature OLAS!, DARK HOLLOW BOTTLING COMPANY, and the return of PEEPSHOW after long hibernation, all of whom will get some airtime in coming weeks.

Um, SPOSE hit #1 on the ITUNES Alternative chart this past week. He was in the 30s overall at last check.

If you’re in the clubs in Europe, you just might hear “Pegasus,” a dubstep jam by MOLDY FEATURING DYNAMO-P. You might even hear it here in Maine.

TRAVIS JAMES HUMPHREY has been working hard down in Nashville, with guitarist and Maine native JOHNNY HILAND, who’s producing a CD that should be ready by the middle of April. If everything goes right, Humphrey will use the momentum from the album to move down to Nashville and start the pro-musician grind down there.
