New York City jazz expatriates and psychedelic aficionados Whitewash (not to be confused with Australian cover lover band Whitewash) will be releasing Fraud In Lisbon EP this September 16, 2014.

They started playing Ween songs live as a duo, and after meeting drummer Evan Giazman in auditions for NYU jazz programs and Giazman's then-roommate Aram Demirdjian, Whitewash was formed.

Since the passing of Lou Reed, we've seen numerous tributes to the genius songwriter behind The Velvet Underground.
The latest is a project with new label Palm Zone Records with their VU tribute called Palm Zone - Session 1. One of the bands on the recording session is Terminal Gods, which they have recorded "White Light / White Heat" as one of four tracks on the EP.
Paul Carlin, Exec Producer for Palm Zone, says, "This has been something we’ve wanted to do for a number of years and when the opportunity came along to have Terminal Gods join the show, we didn’t hesitate. The three bands on the EP are very different and all add something special. Terminal Gods add dark drums, dank leather and raw energy."
This Tuesday, August 26th, The White Buffalo (aka singer/songwriter Jake Smith) will be making his late night TV performance debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in support of his latest album Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways (Unison Music Group).
NPR All Songs Considered has called Jake Smith "an amazing storyteller" and the album traces the life story of Joey White, a small town outsider who goes to war and returns home only to find more violence as he struggles to readjust to a life away from the front lines and reconcile with the girl he left behind. The record debut in September 2013 in the Top 10 on Billboard's New Artist Chart.
Be sure to catch The White Buffalo on Jimmy Kimmel Live to hear "This Year".
