Enjoy the catchy, synth-pop fueled single from DC’s own Honest Haloway. The band is the brain child of local song writer/musician Tim Kratzer. “Eyes On Me” is off the new EP “Perigee” out now. Be sure and catch the band at Rock and Roll Hotel on August 8 and at DC9 August 9. Enjoy…

Tiny Victories is out now with their second single “Systems” off their debut full-length album Haunts. Not a bad follow up to “Drinking With Your Ghost“, which I have had on repeat since June.

Museum of Love :: In Infancy

Jun 25th, 2014 : by :: Tags: , , ,

DFA records has always been a repository for eclectic dance music. It’s refreshing, while a lot of labels strive for genre purity, DFA artists love a blurred line. The majority of DFA’s roster lives and works in NYC and I think you can hear the warm yet edgy multiculturalism that runs through the label. DFA Regulars Dennis McNany and Pat Mahoney’s new project is Museum of Love. With it, they prove that big, jumbled, NYC dance-punk lives on. Enjoy.
