    CALVIN JOHNSON - Warehouse - DJ Cole Alexander CALVIN JOHNSON Based in Olympia, Wash., Calvin Johnson's work in underground culture started as a teenage fan volunteering at the local community radio station, KAOS-FM. He moved on to writing for fanzines, organizing music and film events, playing music in various ill-fated bands. Calvin established K, a locally oriented media outlet, in 1982. In 1993 Calvin founded Dub Narcotic Studio in which he has documented the work of the Somehow Is and Never Was, such as Mirah, the Blow, Versus, Built to Spill, Fitz of Depression, Make-Up and Little Wings. It has also been the incubator of many Calvin experiments in collaboration and self-expression, such as Beat Happening, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Sound System, and Selector Dub Narcotic. The decade of the double zeroes saw Calvin Johnson set into the world, acoustic guitar in hand, as a solo artist of musical platitudes. Now that the one-zeroes have hit, Calvin is busy preparing a new album for the new decade. WAREHOUSEBrought together by their elementary school band, Ben Jackson and Alex Bailey ended up swapping their trombones for guitar. After playing together throughout high school, the two parted ways when Alex went to study in San Francisco and Ben stayed in their native Atlanta, befriending vocalist Elaine Edenfield and drummer Doug Bleichner along the way. The adolescent bandmates were later reunited at a house party. Warehouse is the result. Now joined by bassist Josh Hughes, of Stevie Dinner, the five-piece band finds its inspirations in Brazils Bossa Nova and Tropicalia movements. Warehouse even received a shout-out from multi-hyphenate Bradford Cox, of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound, in his Best of 2013 list for Pitchfork. Their debut album Tesseract is a slight departure from some of their earlier new wave material, and highlights more classic rock elements, matched by Elaines guttural vocals. Tesseract will be made available from Bayonet on March 3, 2015. DJ COLE ALEXANDER
