British up and coming label Parlez Parlez is on off to a great start, with their release of Royce Wood Junior’s debut track “Nuff”. The track blends the cool broken electronic vibes of modern neo-soul artists with a touch of the blues. Stay tuned for a forthcoming EP. Happy Friday…
Scope Owl Eyes and their lovely cover of Daft Punk’s “Something About Us”. The band takes a softer touch but fitting modern homage to Daft Punk’s 2001 “Love Theme from Intesrtella 5555“. Enjoy…
Special giveaway edition of Breezy Sundays today with Public Service Broadcasting.

Grab their full length Inform – Educate – Entertain out now and catch the band at Black Cat in DC on March 4. You can win two tickets to the show by commenting below or tweeting @newdust. Get breezy and see ya there.
Check out this exclusive first look at Shark Week‘s video for “Go West”, off the Santurce 7″ released last year (grab it HERE). The video is an homage to the old west, shot in Texas, Virginia, and DC. A hoaky visual that pairs nicely with the bourbon-soaked garage rock the band so effortlessly produces. I have been told the band is recording new material for their debut full length album, expected to be out later this year. Until then… stay tuned and go west young man.
Santa Barbara natives and recent devotees to a good eighties homage (see video for “Bullet Train” above”), are coming to DC9 on February 20. The band is touring in support of their recent album Dunes. We have a lot to make up for as the band was on our “10 Tracks We Missed in 2013” list. This show should be great and maybe we will even get a version of their killer cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy”.
We’ll make this giveaway easy. As props to the the band’s ironic (or not) endeavor into MTV throw back vids, comment below with your all time most “80s” music video to win two tickets to the 2/20 show. If you don’t win… that is OK… get your tickets HERE.
