The band's name, People Eating People, was chosen as the winner of the “world’s worst band name” competition she had with a couple friends after debuting some of the her new songs for them. With the help of her Seattle musical companiions, Johnston entered the studio and created an album of bittersweet and highly personal songs... "For Now" pulls you into the end of a relationship where you're struggling not to go crazy and, in turn, be forgiving and accepting (we've all been there!). The song "Rain, Rain" shows Johnston at her sweetest, pleading for a fresh start. Then, conversely, when she belts out the chorus to "I Hate All My Friends", you absolutely must believe her.
Suicide Squeeze recording artists Cotton Jones are pleased to announce the worldwide release of their second album, Tall Hours In The Glowstream, available August 24 on CD, Vinyl (w/ download), and digital formats
Woods are amazing. And we have a free song of theirs here for you to grab and plug into your ears. Oh wait, theres more. You can also enjoy White Fence with a free download also. What's with the madness you may ask. Well it is all due to the fact that they are both playing at Woodsist Festival in NY the 25th of this month. Be there or be square
Voidwell’s music is an intoxicating mix of 80’s new wave, funk, and R&B, with a dash of hip-hop swagger and the DIY spirit of indie culture. He is a master of seamlessly weaving together social-commentary and humor into dancefloor anthems. However, while he may poke a little fun at, well, everyone, Voidwell is never condescending and everyone is always invited to the party
Your preconceived notions of british people are wrong here as well. They are statuesque in their striking beauty, and their voices are ethereal and smoky. Seeing them live is completely enthralling. They have an old time blues and backwoods sound, with a hint of the haunted.
Florida trio Mouse Fire release their sophomore album Big Emotion today, which is already garnering praise for its blend of catchy dance rock the Oklahoma Gazette describes as "a resolutely dance-floor-ready sound combining bristling funk backbeat, shimmying synth lines and big, harmonic vocal hooks that hark back to Hall & Oates, Air Supply and Chicago... graceful, pretty and foot-tapping."
Quiet Company, led by Taylor Glen Muse, is one man’s vision brought to life with a little help from his friends. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Taylor Muse already has years of experience under his young belt, having fronted and played in many bands, including an early version of Eisley. After the break-up of his last band, The Connotations, Taylor hoped to complete an album of collected contributions from his extensive cast of musician friends. Instead, he played nearly everything himself, and ended up with a very personal and visionary endeavor entitled “Shine Honesty”. By the end of it all, you may be uncomfortably aware of exactly who he loves, who he hates, and how he feels about them all.
Throughout the recording process, the band maintained their goal of combining party music with experimentation, resulting in an album that is both fun and idiosyncratic. WithFuture Breeds the band has kicked off a new chapter in their career and are excited that no one knows where they’ll go next, not even themselves.
White has no patience with light fare. “I don't write happy music. I'm drawn to writing sad songs”, she says. “Reflective, contemplative songs. I truly believe that that's my job. It's not my job to create happy music. I'm okay with that.”
