From KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad:
I love it when people turn me on to music. It’s a huge help when fans, listeners, and friends present me with something they themselves really dig. It’s a kind and very personal gesture that I truly appreciate.
A few months ago, the editor of this blog, RR, turned me on to local band Superhumanoids. I found a CD with a note, took a listen, and immediately began playing one of the jams. I gravitated to “Hey Big Bang,” with vocals from the band’s sole female member, Sarah, at the forefront.
Stream “Hey Big Bang”
That same evening, I get a text from the Superhumanoids show that gives major props to their stage skills and, weeks later, I receive a collection of remixes by the band for the likes of Local Natives, Blackbird Blackbird, etc.
Their electro-tinged, indie rock sound taps into the rare knowledge of deep bassdom, relative to street hop and nasty dance floor thump. That said, they have a certain soul about them and I’m intrigued. Looking forward to more from Superhumanoids in 2011.
