The Hive Dwellers
If you haven't heard of K Records, you should seek it out immediately. The label's founder, Calvin Johnson, has embraced the idea of the eternal teenager in all of us as articulated by filmmaker John Cassavetes and run with it from the beginning. The history and catalogues of his bands, Beat Happening and Dub Narcotic Soundsystem, bear that out. So does his latest project, the Hive Dwellers. An unabashed celebration of minimalist rock and roll woven into bouncy electro-pop, Johnson and his many collaborators have reinvented and kept relevant a spirit of artless creativity. The most recent Hive Dwellers release featured Karl Blau and LAKE's Andrew Dorsett, and it may turn out that both support Johnson on his ongoing song-and-dance-fueled revolt against the corporate ogre.
