Yea Big & Kid Static on Daytrotter

Recorded awhile back, the Daytrotter session with Yea Big & Kid Static has finally been posted. The energetic duo recorded three tracks during the session, the Mae-shi version of “Run To The Facts”, “Middle America” from The Future’s Looking Grim, their classic closing song, a cover of “Thank You for Being a Friend” (Golden Girl’s Theme). It’s an interesting selection of tracks. “Middle America” is a great song, but not the most well known track from the latest album, and there hilarious closing track is entertaining, but not really representative of the work in general. Regardless, I am glad to see Yea Big & Kid Static finally getting some buzz and on a larger scale.


Stranger In The Alps

Soft Speaker has a new ep coming out this month. The ep, Stranger in the Alps features five new songs and you can now stream two of the tracks,”Marble Mask” and “Tennyson Tea” here.

Soft Speaker will be celebrating the release of ep on February 26th at Darkroom with Yukon Blonde and Moxie Motive.


Linear Views

Like a tortured replica of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Syllable Section present a warped and damaged brand of pop. Their debut album, Linear Views, sounds like a demonic, drug induced, ‘60’s pop binge played in reverse, or perhaps a traditional pop tune cut-up, taped back together, and then looped. What ever it is, this psychedelic mess, the listener is taken on a journey that changes them and they are never really the same.

Vocalist Mathew Marquardt makes Kevin Barnes look sane as he places his falsetto whine on tracks about “Normalcy”, loneliness, mood changes, and other craziness. You will feel like you have heard pieces of this before, but never be able to zero in on melody or rhythm. There is beauty in these tracks, but it is being repeatedly strangled to death. The Syllable Section is both traumatic and enjoyable.


Flosstradamus' Valentine’s Day Mix

Nothing says “I Love You” like a mixtape, and yesterday Flosstradamus offered their love up to the world. Check out the crew’s Valentine’s Day Mix. Flosstradamus will be spinning tonight (Feb. 12th) at Lincoln Hall for their annual FlosstrPROMus. The event starts at 10:30pm.


Run From The Gun

Taken from their debut record Ooh La La, coming out Feb. 16th, Ornery Little Darling are not shy about their songs or their intentions and "Run From The Gun" is a perfect example of that attitude. They have entered this video in the Rock the Roxy SXSW video contest. The video was made by Endless Eye Films, ishootrockstars.com, Rubbish Films, and EP Theater.
