This Friday night, Dec. 12, one of my very favorite bands (and possibly the most underrated group in Seattle) Transmissionary Six will be playing their final show at the Sunset in Ballard. It's an early one, like they like to do, so the gang can all swoon to the beautiful music early and then head […]

Cosmonautical, the fifth full-length release from Seattle band the Transmissionary Six, was recorded by another Seattle musician, Graig Markel, and together they've created a sound that is both warm and sprawling.

Get Down

{

Tintype vocals strained through a dampened blanket set the pace to what is without a doubt the strongest material Seattle's Transmissionary Six has compiled yet. "I give a shit/and that's the problem," sings Terri Moeller with the masculinity of Nina Nastasia and the fragility of Beth Gibbons. As well, references to Drugstore or Tram might […]
