The “Sister, Sister”s of indie pop HAIM have received one of the highest of honors thanks to a remix of their song “Forever” by the godfather of electronica, Giorgio Moroder. The Italian virtuoso grinds the original hit through a factory of four-on-the-floor drum machines yielding this robotic, vocodor-enriched track. Listen in…
Get breezy with the lead track off Blue Sunshine. The new album from DC’s own U.S. Royalty out on January 21, 2014.
Get breezy with the sing along closing track off of Ages and Ages upcoming album Divisonary. Keep an eye out for the full record out March 2014 on Partisan Records. Enjoy.
Fear not as this is no Mungo Jerry cover. Instead, “In the Summertime” is an original offering from DC’s own Johnny Fantastic. John Di Lascio, by the way, is (Johnny) fantastic. Perhaps better known for his previous work as Paperhaus bassist, the now front man takes on experimental pop music and recreational bird watching. The cross-pollination of heavy effect pedals chirping alongside Di Lascio’s lofty vocals breeds this feel good tune. Enjoy…
If you need last minute plans for your Tuesday night, we recommend checking out Minor Alps at Black Cat tonight, 11/19. The duo is made up of Juliana Hatfield and Matthew Caws, previously of Nada Surf. The sound harkens back to the alt rock of the mid 90s, a field these two collaborators have certainly earned their expertise in. Tickets are $20 at the door, which is a pretty good price for a time travel trip back to 1995. Listen up and grab their new album Get There here.
