There is a handy way of previewing selected upcoming albums. Midheaven allows for brief previews of tracks. In other words, you can get a rough (one minute) idea of every song before buying the record. In The Red is one of the many labels that have this connection. So check out Mark Sultan’s new Whatever I Want and then navigate around to find other albums.
Mark Sultan might just top Thee Oh Sees in terms of amount of releases in one year. Either way, the good news is that both artists have new records coming out soon.
Sultan has two full-length LPs due out on In The Red — Whenever I Want and Whatever I Want — as well as an EP Livin’ My Life coming via his own label, Sultan Records.
That’s not all for Sultan-related stuff. King Khan & BBQ is releasing its first material in nearly two years: a 7″ that features an original “We Are The Ocean” and a Syd Barrett cover “Terrapin”. Recorded at Moon Studios this past spring. Sultan Records.
And how could a year go by without a Ding-Dongs release? This is Sultan + Bloodshot Bill as you all know. Sultan Records is putting out Lucky Day EP.
Here is the Sultan Records link before I forget.
Now, Thee Oh Sees. Earlier this year, they released Castlemania, which is awesome! Well, In The Red will be soon releasing Thee Oh Sees latest: Carrion Crawler/The Dream LP.
Here is the link to In The Red.
You’re better off going straight to Mark’s website to read his recent most post: http://marksultan.com/. For a recap, though:
– The KK&BBQ Show played a show together and plan on recording a 7″.
– Mark has two new albums coming on In The Red: Whatever I Want and Whenever I Want
– Mark is doing a split 7″ with Black Lips on HoZac and his own release on Sultan Records.
– Playing in June.
From Mark Sultan’s Website:
“Mark is headed to Europe for some shows (including a few with Dan Sartain, Ty Segall, as well as Dum Dum Girls). It will be his first time in Europe on tour as the one-man band ‘BBQ’ since maybe 2006 (?), and certainly his first tour there since the release of the now-out-of-print ‘$’ album.
By the end of 2011, expect to hear roughly 30 new songs. They will be released on two staggered albums by In The Red Records (Los Angeles), as well as on a few 7” records.
Among the many, many new hit originals are cover versions of songs by Ultravox, Lee Maye, Gene Vincent, The Stains and some others.
Special guest musicians include Jared Swilley and Cole Alexander of The Black Lips, King Khan, Erin from The Spits, Danny from the Gories, and some other folks.
Western Canadian and US tour dates for June to come soon.”

Mark Sultan on playing to unfamiliar audiences:
“In places like Cambodia, you go in there and they have no idea what you’re doing. There may be five people there or 50, but they have no idea what that sound is. By the time you’re done, maybe you’ve got one hooked. That’s how this works. One person at a time, just like a disease.”
