Audego: Artist You Should Know

Posted July 28, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,325 views]

About a year ago, I discovered a future soul duo based in Melbourne called Audego.
I was immediately seduced by Carolyn’s airy, ethereal vocals & the beat heavy, progressive production courtesy of Pasobionic.
Audego’s music is nostalgic yet contemporary.

Eels by Larry Hirshowitz

Eels main man Mark Oliver Everett mostly lives in a muted space.
While he can come across as solemn if you’re being generous, he does have a sharp wit and the sort of self-deprecating humor that makes you think he’s doing it for the laughs.
Either way you slice it, he’s definitely not the kind of guy to wear salmon colored J.Crews, half rolled up the …

Landlady: Artist You Should Know

Posted June 30, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,369 views]

Landlady is the latest venture from Adam Schatz, who has been involved in so many musical projects it makes the head spin (member of Man Man, co-producer of Winter Jazzfest, session saxophonist for Vampire Weekend, etc.)
But as Landlady, he and his four Brooklyn bandmates churn out quirky rock tunes that satisfy one of my basic tenants of Great Songs: they rarely end up in …

We’ve been big supporters of Aussie soul band The Bamboos over the years so they’re offering us a first look at their video for “Helpless Blues”, by far the poppiest song in their catalogue.
The nine-piece band has a dynamic live show so they captured it on film during shows at The Forum in Melbourne and Amplifier in Perth.
