NITE CLUB "Genorate" LIVE MUSIC VIDEO

Nite Club photo by Lizzy Sullivan

Nite Club is heading over to the east, FAR EAST. Tonight they played their last show for quite some time before heading out to Japan.  Performing at The Deli Magazine’s Bushwick Music Festival they rocked one of their newest songs and possibly one of their soon to be biggest hit. “Genorate” is a new track that melds the loungy electro sounds from their album My Tronic and adds a lot more UMPH to it.  A tune that could easily placed at one of New York’s chic clubs and make the likes of Jay-Z or Kanye West jealous.  This could be the jam to that takes Nite Club to new heights.  Hopefully the elitist ears of this city will keep their eyes closed and open their ears up and just bump & grind along.

PENGUIN PRISON “The Worse It Gets” (R.A.C. Remix) MP3

Penguin Prison

Browsing through the interwebs at abnormal hours may lead discovering some musical gems…sometimes.  But hitting up Big Stereo did just that.  Finding out that New York’s very own Penguin Prison got remixed by R.A.C., I had to download the track.  Long and behold my ears were treated to a simple and as Big Stereo described it, a “pleasant” surprise.  Gifted by a “voice of an angel” (claims The Guardian UK), Chris Glover’s voice sweetly sings over some disco-thumping tracks ala DFA blending itself with the glamorous vibes from Scissor Sisters.

SOLID GOLD Daytrotter Session + Tour

Solid Gold

The Minneapolis indie rock kings recorded a session for Daytrotter back in January.  Recording  new tracks “Elephants” and “One In A Million,” a cover of Chris Isaac’s “Wicked Game” and hit song “Who You Gonna Run To?” the songs are an exact replica of their moody live shows.  Full of groove and warmth my attraction to these songs are still as strong as they are when listening to the excellent recordings in Bodies of Water.  Download the complete session here.

But now having blasted through last week’s SXSW 2010, the band is about to head out on a short tour sporting new songs and maybe even cover.  Check out the tour dates below:

04.02.10 @ Bar & Grill in Morris, Minnesota
04.03.10 @ The Annex in Madison, Wisconsin
04.04.10 @ Subterranean in Chicago, Illinois
04.06.10 @ DC9 in Washington, DC
04.07.10 @ M Room in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
04.08.10 @ Mercury Lounge in New York, New York
04.09.10 @ Glasslands in Brooklyn, New York
04.11.10 @ The Basement in Columbus, Ohio

FUTURE TRENDS "Sometimes Things Don't Match Up" MP3


Future Trends

Andrew Clark is a designer.  Not only of sharp brochures, websites, ads and newsletters but also of irresistible electro dream pop.  Self-recording songs while going to school is tough enough.  But producing high quality songs is even tougher.  A new track titled “Sometimes Things Don’t Match Up” by the Ohioan going by the moniker of Future Trends continues his efforts into completing his album Palace of Dust. Sounding between notable bands such as The Notwist, OMD and DNTEL, the track is slightly more aggressive than his previous tracks such as “Eyes From Heaven.”  If the 80s defined a time when all was obsessed with the future, then Future Trends is bringing the future back.

WOXY.com Online Radio Station Off The Air

WOXY

Well, “The Future of Rock And Roll” WOXY.com went off the air today reported by USA Today. On the front page WOXY states that:

WOXY Listeners, Fans and Friends…

Due to current economic realities and the lack of ongoing funding for WOXY’s operations, we’ve been forced to suspend our live broadcasts as of March 23rd. We’re continuing to explore options to keep The Future of Rock and Roll alive. For business inquiries, please contact Bryan Jay (bryan@woxy.com) or John at Future Sounds (john@futuresounds.com).

Thanks for your years of dedicated support.

MikeShivJoePaigeBrian and Bryan Jay

It’s a sad day when even the internet is not able to help support one of the most heard and listened to online radio stations.  Having been one of the first FM stations to broadcasting solely through internet radio and having supported numerous indie rock and self-released artists for years, losing a patron who supported independent music is a big loss.  Hopefully even though this economic recession is a hard hurdle to leap over, WOXY.com will be able to find a way to rise above the ashes.

Watch a documentary by Zachary Herche about the station:
