Felix Da Housecat's Chicago Blakkout

Felix Da Housecat continue to be the man of many phases. He seems to always be on the pulse of dance music and is able to blend his own brand and style into the current sounds while remaining the constant historian. His latest project blends current and classic EDM with his surprising sense of humor. Chicago Blakkout is a new weekly podcast from Felix. Who better than Felix to create a weekly showcase for the best in EDM.

Felix is also working on his 13th album, with Nile Rodgers and other legends, coming in early 2014. My favorite Felix track will always be "Silver Screen Shower Scene" from his 2002 album Kittenz & Thee Glitz.


The Younger Lovers Release Sugar in My Pocket + Play The Night Light in Oakland TONIGHT

The super talented bubblegum pop group, The Younger Lovers, has recently released its latest album, Sugar in My Pocket on Southpaw Records. As a project of Oakland garage rock stalwart, Brontez Purnell, the band mixes lo-fi vintage style riffs with '60s pop flair. The album is short and sweet, cramming in 12 songs in just over 20 minutes.The Younger Lovers use vocals that blur the line between poetry and banter, similar to Television Personalities with simplistic instrumentals to support this experimental vocal vibe. They have certainly polished their sound to near perfection within their last three albums. We're very into this new release!

Sugar in My Pocket covers themes of love, heartbreak and existential crisis all in a short period of time. Some tracks that stand out are: Hey Now, The Man From Orange, the cleverly titled I Can’t (Kim) Deal With It and the last song on the album, My Tears Are Wasted (So Am I). Even as some of the song's subject matter can appear bleak, Purnell maintains his popcentric composure throughout it all.

The Younger Lovers play TONIGHT at the Night Light in Oakland with Mattress, Dubais and Gray Lawns. -Erin Dage
