TWRP :: Believe In Your Dreams + show on 11/7 in Baltimore

October 30th, 2015 : Post by :: Categories

First, look what’s going on in this picture. These people(?) are riding space scooters with more confidence than I have walking down the street. I hope I’ve gotten your attention. Second, Canadian galaxy rockers TWRP (Tupper Ware Remix Party) dropped the Believe in Your Dreams EP back in September and are currently touring around Canada and select places in the US, including the neighboring city of Baltimore, to promote the new release.

Their music is delightfully indulgent and over the top – think classic video game tracks meets synth rock. A Daft Punk comparison is a little unavoidable, maybe even too obvious to really be worth mentioning, and I certainly don’t have a problem with more sounds like this floating around the universe. Personal favorite track is “Pale Blue Dot” with “Baby, N.Y.C.” as a close second. “Baby, N.Y.C.” is a collab with a band called Ninja Sex Party (everything is a party with these guys it seems) and it’s got me wondering, what is a shanghai lady? Is it me? Am I a shanghai lady? Is Rita Hayworth? Lots of questions here. Either way, all of the EP is…wait for it…OUT OF THIS WORLD fun (get it? Because SPACE). Is it silly? Absolutely.

But silly is cool, guys. The concert is at The Ottoman in Baltimore on 11/7, with tickets $10 in advance. This can’t be anythingother than an amazingly high energy show, so if you can make the drive to B-more I’d highly recommend doing so. And if this write up hasn’t convinced you, just know that I’m like 98% sure they wear those outfits on stage. Fingers crossed for space scooters.

Dusk :: Too Sweet

Does he understand what you’ve done for him lately? Dusk’s Julia Blair sings it’s all too sweet. Their latest release is the perfect fusion of soul, country, and rock. Listen to “Too Sweet” while winding down tonight (with a glass of whiskey and a warm blanket).

Rationale :: Fast Lane (video)

October 20th, 2015 : Post by :: Categories
“I work really hard to ensure that every moment you experience of the Rationale project ends up being something that stays in the mind,” Rationale’s anonymous front man comments on the video for ‘Fast Lane’ their first officially released track. “Even if you don’t particularly like it, you’ll at least remember it.” It’s definitely stayed in ours.

Watch the new video above, filmed through the surreal streets of LA. If the thought of devoting attention to a music video post the TRL-age stresses you out, stream the EP on Soundcloud.

Coeur de pirate :: Show preview at Sixth and I Synagogue on 10/25

October 19th, 2015 : Post by :: Categories
Coeur de pirate is a multi-platinum star in Europe and Canada and now is making her way to DC to showcase her amazing talent. On October 25th she’ll be playing at the beautiful Sixth and I Historic Synagogue to support her latest album Roses which has already done rather well in Canada. Her lead single “Carry On” is also tearing up the charts and has the potential to do well here in the states. Her live show is one of those things you have to see to believe (see a clip from her performance at Massey Hall last year below). The young stunner is already on a great path with Roses so it’s no surprise that we’ll all be looking out to see what’s next.

Cardiknox :: Doors + track featuring Daye Jack

October 14th, 2015 : Post by :: Categories
Cardiknox’s new single “Doors” is filled with a very positive message. It makes not giving up look cool even when the chips are down. This song is for those of us who may be having a bad day, week, month or year. The simplicity of the lyrics aligned with the melodic beat makes Doors unforgettable. Daye Jack gives the song a nice reboot with a special remix of the track featuring the Georgia rapper. Currently on tour — Cardiknox is also gearing up to release their debut album in 2016 and with a successful hit single I’m sure plenty more Doors will open…
