Hailing from the UK, Jodie Abacus provides deep, heartfelt songs stemming from real life experience.
With a radio DJ as a father and a fascination with MTV, connecting to audiences has always been his biggest priority.
Listeners can feel the intimacy of Abacus sitting in a dark room with his keyboard writing these songs, as he did in his breakout single “I’ll Be That Friend”.
This upbeat, …

This Soft Machine artwork

Borrowing some titular inspiration from William S. Burroughs, like Robert Wyatt before him, Australian DJ/Producer Tim Sullivan called his music project This Soft Machine. 
Making it’s debut on Eskimo Recordings in April, This Soft Machine has less in common with the Canterbury sound and more to do with the LCD and !!!. Sullivan’s first single has a pair of cool cuts and features instrumentation from Dave Harrington of DARKSIDE a​nd Cut …

60 tigres

New Music is pretty much what we live for over here at Pan Caliente.
And when it mysteriously comes from a band that was rumored to have split up back in 2012 it’s even more exciting.
60 Tigres, a band that formed in the musical mecca of Monterrey, Mexico, about 9 years back, returns with a new album and tour dates to boot.
“Hay Más”, the lead …

Your 33 Black Angels: Artist You Should Know (Song Premiere)

Posted April 9, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 1,174 views]
Cover

Bands like to be mysterious these days.
Like “we don’t have a bio” kind of mysterious.
Your 33 Black Angels are kind of like that.
They’ve been around for a while – I still break out their 2008 album, “Tales of My Pop-Rock Love Life“, every so often.
They are based out of Brooklyn and are non-infrequent performers at East Coast venues.
Their line-up seems fluid.
They play a fairly …

DMA’s: Artist You Should Know

Posted April 2, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 1,024 views]
DMA

I’m a sucker for Aussie pop. Especially when it sounds kinda like my favorite early 90’s Brit pop.
The DMA’s immediately reminded me of the Stone Roses (and right afterward, I read that Noisey had said the same), with a dash of Oasis.
This is no coincidence — singer Tommy O’Dell’s father is “very, very English” according to guitarist Johnny Took, whose father also lived in …

Avener: Artist You Should Know

avener

I was listening to the French producer Tristan Casara, aka The Avener recently and was struck by his track “Fade Out Lines”.
Growing up in Nice, France, Tristan was never a stranger to music.
He began playing piano at the age of five. This incredibly early start was a sure sign of innate talent and commitment to his craft.
By age 15, Casara was developing his musical …

Ryley Walker: Artist You Should Know (SXSW Preview)

10869402_1531788697071962_4099528160183792049_o

Ryley Walker first came to my attention with the release of his debut album “All Kinds of You” last year on Tompkins Square.
Due to that label’s tendency to reissue rare recordings combined with Walker’s knack for a vintage production sound, I thought for some time the album was recorded 45 years ago instead of 2014. (I should really pay more attention to these press releases)
Walker is …

fort romeau

I am old.
I haven’t been to SXSW in over 10 years.
And when I went it was for my cousins Bachelor Party which happened to fall at the same time as the Interactive Week. Austin was teeming with drunk nerdy people in lanyards speaking in tongues all over each other about “new media.”
Mind you this is before iPhones even.
In any case, the atmosphere gave me a kind …
