FUTURE SOUNDS RADIO DEBUTS 11.30.09

Here is more information on artists that were debuts on this week's Future Sounds radio show on WOXY.....

THE BLACK RYDER
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Sydney, Australia
TRACK: Gone Without Feeling

Down under continues to bubble up the goods, time and time again, this time it's Sydney's THE BLACK RYDER. Dark, droney, this band has played with all the right BRMC type bands that have hit Australia, it needs to ride to North America. SXSW perhaps? The Anti-Machine Machine

CAPYBARA
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Kansas City, MO
TRACK: San Francisco, 1906

Definitely taking their cues from the SUFJAN STEVENS playbook, Kansas City's Capybara create a magical blend of indie rock that will tickle the DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE fan in all of us. The entire record, 'Try Brother', is extremely strong. The Record Machine


JAGUAR LOVE
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Portland, Oregon
TRACK: Started A Fire

You should know this duo from PDX, it's former BLOOD BROTHERS members creating a new blend of dance music. That should be enough street cred to get your attention, the music will take it from there. Fat Possum Records


LISTENING PARTY
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Shawnigan Lake, BC, Canada
TRACK: Kissing Booth

This came our way from a trusted source and all that we've heard from Listening Party's "South End Metropolis record is top flight. Interesting indeed, like an indie rock THIEVERY CORPORATION. Kill Devil Hills Records


BIG ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: New Orleans, LA
TRACK: Lover

This young band sounds quite a bit like The Killers, with big choruses and high-end production, but they are a young troupe from Nola paying tribute to 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?". Unsigned


AM
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Los Angeles/Tulsa/New Orleans
TRACK: A Complete Unknown

This came via our friends at Filter, but it's a local flower we've been watching for some time and they've finally bloomed. AM is about to do the US tour supporting AIR, and that should get them on people's radar. Think BECK meets tropicalia and you are getting close. Filter Recordings


JET HORNS
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Gothenberg, Germany/Austin, Texas
TRACK: The Circle

Easily one of the most interesting artists we've come across in a bit, this Germany living in Austin sent us a complex set of music that is so diverse and unique that it'll take some time for us to even catch up to it. Unsigned

TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES: DEASTRO @ THE ECHO - INTERVIEW

Tonight at The Echo it's someone we've been a fan of since first catching the bug last year - DEASTRO. If you haven't heard them yet, think POSTAL SERVICE meets MAPS with a touch of SUFJAN. The Detroit based electronic leaning duo will be playing with MAX TUNDRA this evening and we had a chance to catch up with them before the show and ask some questions:

FS: You are rolling into LA for a show with MAX TUNDRA at The Echo in support of your album, 'Moondagger', how's the tour been so far? What was the high point so far?

DEASTRO: A O K ... THE _-_- hiGH pOinT so far for me has been playing in Montreal. The people we stayed with were great people. We stayed up talking about our cities and how great it was that the Canadian government invested so heavily in the arts. Me and Adam (the other guy in the band) were inspired by the difference it seems to make in their country.


FS: Deastro hails from Detroit, a city known as much for its raw power and garage as it is for it's techno and house. Is that where you pull your electronic vision for?

DEASTRO: I didn't really listen to music growing up other than Christian music. I started listening to music a lot when I was 19.


FS: We hear all these horror stories about the condition of the Motor City these days, but I also hear about all these artists moving to Detroit to rebuild it from a creative standpoint. Which is more accurate - desperation or creativity?

DEASTRO: I would say it is both, people are positive everywhere about rebuilding the city but it I am not saying there aren't times when people aren't desperate.


FS: I rarely ever ask an artist to let us in on the meaning of the lyrics to a song, but with 'Biophelia', it really begs this question. Can you elaborate?

DEASTRO: It is pretty personal I don't know if I should. We went through a really rough time in each others lives together.


FS: What's the story with "Tree Frog", it's so inspiring and uplifting, why was it a bonus track to the album?

DEASTRO: I wanted to cheer someone up. I put it on the album because we needed one for the label and I wanted people to hear the stuff I had always made.


FS: "Daniel Johnston Was Stabbed In The Heart With The Moondagger By The King Of Darkness And His Ghost Is Writing This Song As A Warning To All Of Us" - Long song title, but in it hides "Moondagger" - again, there seems to be a story waiting for this track and album theme? Do you mind sharing it with us?

DEASTRO: In that song I was just trying to use the absurd to make it easier to talk about some things that I am sad about and I wish I could just change.


FS: Future Sounds is forever in search of the next Deastro, bands and artists in every town in every state and country that are unknown today, can you tip us off about some bands that need a shout out or that everyone should know about?

DEASTRO: There is a band called redtom from MI, they have a song called when she's lonely that I really like. www.myspace.com/onewordredtom


FS: Thanks again for your time, we look forward to your set at The Echo.

8:30pm / $10 advance, $12 Day of Show / 18+

FUTURE SOUNDS RECORDS & ORIGAMI VINYL SET TO RELEASE LILOFEE 7" ON DEC 1ST

San Francisco based electro rock outfit, LILOFEE, are set to release a 7" with Echo Park's Origami Vinyl and Los Angeles based Future Sounds Records on December 1st. The 7" will feature the single, "Runaway" with a b-side, "In Flight".

Lead track, "Runaway" hums like Kim Wilde's "Kids In America" with a mix of Blondie's rapid-fire lyrics in "Rapture" that fits nicely next to contemporaries like Santogold or MIA. "In Flight" is a dreamy melancholy song of a girl who slowly turns into a bird and flies away, set to a musical backdrop of glitchy, radiating magic.

Two record release parties will take place around the launch of the "Runaway" vinyl, the first in San Francisco as Lilofee supports The Donnas at Slim's on December 9th and the second taking place in Los Angeles on December 16th at The Echo.

Lilofee's music is exactly like the dark German fairy tale it is named after, full of angst and love, dripping with affliction and laced with enchantment. Add to that a serious dance beat, a sprinkle of glitter and some remarkably catchy lyrics, and you have Lilofee.

The San Francisco duo, composed of Rob Easson and Kimi Recor, met through friends in 2007 and bonded over their mutual interest in dark pop, industrial music, and the Beatles. As Recor says, "the first time we played music together, we didn't leave the studio for 15 hours." The band has already shared the stage with Hercules & Love Affair, Sebastien Tellier, and opened for Deerhunter at this year's Noise Pop Music Festival in San Francisco.

As a live act, Lilofee transforms into a dynamic six piece, joined by drummer Dan Aquino, bassist Cyrus Etemad, guitarist Shea Roberts and keyboardist Chris Vick. Their collective musical experience comes through in their dramatic live performances and their dark, heavy sound has garnered comparison to bands such as Ladytron, Interpol and the Knife.

Lilofee's first full length - 'The Only Years' - will be released early in 2010.

TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES: EL PERRO DEL MAR + OTHERS

The wonderfully enchanting voice and presence that is Sweden's EL PERRO DEL MAR closes up her North American tour with PETER, BJORN & JOHN tonight at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. We fell in love with her back on Future Sounds 24, but she continues to release gorgeous records that not enough people appreciate. Throw in the PARSON REDHEADS and HECUBA and you have yourself an amazing evening at the Hotel.

If that's not your bag, there is plenty to choose from this evening, as Spaceland have our friends DIOS playing on THE HAPPY HOLLOWS residency night that also includes buzzin' REAL ESTATE and ONE TRICK PONY. Free.

The show with the most steam is probably going on at Echo, where FANFARLO and FREELANCE WHALES perform. Both bands are like runaway trains right now in terms of upward mobility, so you have some decisions tonight.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT - THE RUMBLE: BROOKLYN @ SOUTHPAW

THE RUMBLE: BROOKLYN returns this Wednesday night to SOUTHPAW in Park Slope for another night of great music by bands on their way up. The party is brought to you by Future Sounds, DeFalco Presents, WOXY, Sound Fix Records and Stranded In Stereo.

Headlining is a band that should be on everyone's radar by now, BODY LANGUAGE, with their electronic finesse, having worked with folks like Passion Pit on their first recordings.

The ladies from Philadelphia, EAST HUNDRED, drop their BELLY-like rock on us (listen to "Plus Minus") as main support.

PEEPHOLE, a band we were just turned onto by Defalco's prying eye, are amazing, and are giving away their music on their web site. It's worth the download, we're big fans of "Club Agoraphobia" and their entire EP.

Opening up is a band we've been hearing rumblings about, it's time to see for ourselves, it's AERIEL EAST to complete November's four band line up.

Doors are at 8pm - Southpaw is located at 125 5th Avenue in Brooklyn

HOLLYWOOD BREWFEST THIS SATURDAY - UNLIMITED TASTINGS + LIVE MUSIC

This Saturday night in Hollywood, we're presenting a beer festival at the gorgeous MUSIC BOX @ FONDA where for the $45 ticket price, you can drink unlimited tastings of over 35 breweries while watching bands on two stages and dancing to DJ's on the rooftop.

You've been to some beer festivals, you know what I'm talking about, the kind where people have their hat backwards, in some field with white tents, and if they happen to have music playing, it isn't the kind you wanna hear. We're looking to flip that experience, deliver cool sounds that represent Los Angeles and beyond, while you taste amazing beers like MAGIC HAT or cask beers in the Blue Palms Brewhouse. Breaking it down over 8 hours, the unlimited beer tastings makes this a cheap night out drinking, with bands as a bonus.

FUTURE SOUNDS RADIO DEBUTS 11.09.09

We'll be highlighting all the bands playing this weekend's HOLLYWOOD BREWFEST later this week on the blog, so we'll reserve those bands appearing on the FS WOXY playlist for the first time for that feature. Here were the other new arrivals....

THE RENTALS
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Los Angeles
TRACK: Traces of Our Tears

Hardly a new band, but new to our FS radio show, THE RENTALS have been around since Matt Sharp put it together in the mid-90's. You will remember Sharp from his days as bassist for WEEZER, and their track "Friends Of P" back in the day. This is hardly an act living in the past, rather boldly creating a new release that includes a year long body of work called "Songs About Time" that's complete with daily and weekly photos, videos, new songs weekly, coffee table books, vinyl, and probably another 25 things I haven't mentioned. Bold indeed.

FENCES
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Seattle
TRACK: The Same Tattoos

FENCES is really about Chris Mansfield, a guy that manages to create perfect indie rock in a DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE kinda way. Originally from Boston, now in Seattle, everything we've heard from him is high quality. Unsigned

TONIGHT @ THE ARUBA - THE RUMBLE: LAS VEGAS RETURNS


Making another run at Sin City - THE RUMBLE: LAS VEGAS let's it ride at The Thunderbird Lounge at The Aruba for another FREE night of music. This month's party features 3 bands and a special guest DJ all brought to you by Future Sounds, Neon Reverb, Indigenous and WOXY.

Closing out their 6 city Rumble tour is the incredible APES OF WRATH. Watching them again and again, and their mid-afternoon performance at The Casbah in SD yesterday, it's easy to understand that this band has a huge future in front of them. They played songs off their newly finished full-length, 10 tracks of JONATHAN RICHMOND & THE MODERN LOVERS meets THE MUSLIMS/SP goodness. Just watching their drummer is a show within the show.

Las Vegas comes correct, and represent with THE SKOONERS, and band with gorgeous melodies at times while at other moments run off the rails. We've really enjoyed all that we've heard from this four piece and live they actually make indie kids dance.

Opening up are MINOR SUNS, an unsigned band from Vegas that create some gorgeous sounding indie rock that would find a nice home on Thrill Jockey or Barsuk.

The special guest DJ this month is DJ MIKEATTACK!

The party is FREE - The Thunderbird Lounge is inside The Aruba at 1215 S. Las Vegas Blvd

SATURDAY MATINEE SHOW - THE RUMBLE: SAN DIEGO @ THE CASBAH

The early bird gets the worm, or in this case, the Ape, as THE RUMBLE: SAN DIEGO returns to the Casbah this Saturday for a FREE matinee show with APES OF WRATH, AWOLNATION and THE OLD IN OUT, brought to you by Future Sounds, Indigenous, WOXY, Spin Earth, M Theory Records, SDdialed In, CityBeat and Trumer Pils.

If the APES OF WRATH continue their Rumble devastation tour in the fashion they've been going over the last few nights, playing their home turf tomorrow is going to be a spectacle. The trio sounds tighter than ever after four nights on the road, and I just received a copy of their full length and it's incredible.

Coming up from LA is the force that is AWOLNATION. You may recall frontman, Aaron Bruno from UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF GIANTS previously, this is his new project that is drawing big crowds in Los Angeles. High energy and with personality for a couple bands, not to be missed.

Opening up is the SD act, THE OLD IN OUT, and if you just go by the name, their going to bring the nasty. We had our local partners tell us how amazing they are live, so we've put together a line up of three acts that we know stand and deliver on stage.

Coming strong as guest DJ's this month are the dynamic duo of DJ RED OCTOBER and DJ C. WIZARD.

This is a FREE show and there will be beer specials provided by TRUMER PILS all afternoon long.

THE PARTY LASTS FROM 3PM-6PM
Come out early and start your Saturday night off right

THE RUMBLE: PORTLAND TONIGHT @ HOLOCENE

THE RUMBLE: PORTLAND touches down TONIGHT at Holocene for another night of FREE music brought to you by your friends at Future Sounds, Pampelmoose, Cravedog, Music Millennium, WOXY and XO Publicity.

Headlining the party is RAVISHERS (Formerly the Rock Savants) a band that only started up in February, but have quickly pushed to the front of the line and are known for their blistering live show. Listen to "Keep You Around".

Bringing the freak to the party will be SERIOUS BUSINESS. Think GRAVVY TRAIN or PEACHES with a twist of CSS and you're getting close to Serious Business. Lots of songs about underwear and scandalous nights add up to their brand of business.

Opening up are APES OF WRATH, the band from San Diego we are so excited about that we're sending them through the entire Rumble Tour in November of the west coast dates and are releasing their new single, "Deathtrain" on Itunes tomorrow on Future Sounds Records.

Special guest DJ JARED WHITE will be keeping things moving between bands all evening.

Did we mention it's a FREE party?

ELECTRIC WIRE HUSTLE
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Wellington, New Zealand
TRACK: They Don't Want

Giving credit where it's due, we got this one from one of our favorite blogs, YOURS TRULY, and fell instantly for this Kiwi act that sounds like you'd find it in Dusty Grooves. Unsigned




TRUE WIDOW
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Dallas, TX

This Dallas trio sound HUGE, and mix lush, mesmerizing vocals with Nirvana like alternative rock. This is one band I'm going to track down to see live. Unsigned


THE CROOKES
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: London
TRACK: Chorus Of Fools

Mixing THE SMITHS with THE HOUSEMARTINS and VAMPIRE WEEKEND and you get a cocktail that is THE CROOKES, a band that had a buzz at ITC and lived up to it with their "take-it-to-the-streets" approach, complete with a closer in the crowd. Unsigned


THE MOLOTOVS
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: London
TRACK: One Up On Me

Those Fierce Panda cats know how to throw a party and their ITC showcase at Cellar Vie highlighted some incredible bands we didn't know in the UK. THE MOLOTOVS were one of the highlights of this year's ITC.


GOLDHEART ASSEMBLY
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: London
TRACK: Hope Hung High

I was lucky enough to catch these guys in Manchester at In The City - fantastic live act that has just signed with Fierce Panda. The song speaks for itself, but it's one of five great ones I've heard initially. The real deal.


STREET HERO
MYSPACE
HOMETOWN: Brooklyn
TRACK: Brooklyn Boys

Despite this band photo, I think this one has some serious potential as a bonafide radio hit - "Brooklyn Boys" should pop out of obscurity to mainstream quickly enough. Unsigned


EMEEN ZAROOKIAN

Call him Emeen Z, call him SPIRIT KID, I call him the one man machine of talent from Harvard. Every track passed along to us has something extra, look out for Emeen once he gets rolling. Unsigned

Returning pride back to the musical name of MARIAH, it's 17 year old (yep, that's right, I said 17) Mariah McManus who has recently gone solo from her previous projects and dropped this stunning track with touches of BJORK and IMOGEN HEAP. Unsigned

CHASING KINGS

How did this one slip past us in our own backyard for so long?? I just received a batch of songs from their new release and every track is strong. Unsigned

About to tour with The Evangelicals throughout the US, it's yet another Florida on the rise! I can tell at first listen that this band has quite a bit to back this up with - stay tuned.....TwoSyllable Records
