Up Next: Peachcakes next event listening party on Friday, Oct. 26th @ Sochu House http://www.facebook.com/events/416279008421843/?fref=ts and they will be performing on EVB Live in November."...the first CD was all electro because we just wanted to make fun pop music and because MTV really liked our first 3 demo songs and we didn't want to change their mind. But after a year of playing shows, we didn't feel like it was coming across very well live. And we weren't having as much fun playing the songs. We would spend hours programming massive synth arrangements and beats to back us up - but it was only sounding good on recordings. So, the last 9 months or more - we have been writing and playing all our songs with just the basics. Mostly bass drum guitar, with a little synth thrown in. We really wanted more live feel and emotion for the next CD. Now we've come to a happy medium where we are slowly adding in more arrangements AFTER the songs are finished - instead of starting them off with too many bells and whistles. Also, we wanted to take more time to develop the new material. The first album was rushed and we only had a few months to write and record the whole thing." When Super Stereo hit the inside stage at ALMF nothing could have prepared me for what I experienced. I heard a fusion of up-tempo indie rock with driving new-wave bass lines, and those dance drums. Oh, and it seems the ladies have taken over with vocals. LO& T’s juxtaposition of vocal harmonies was fantastic. This performance was the same high level of entertainment and enthusiasm I remember seeing last summer, but this music is much more to my own personal liking. Indie dance music, hell yes, give me more please. Up Next: Super Stereo is currently recording a full album of new material and will book shows beginning in December. http://www.crescentphx.com/event/148865/ An Echo Cloud Productions full interview with The Technicolors will be out by November 1st regarding their upcoming Listener Deluxe Edition Album Release, and mini-tour.
The photo above: The Technicolors Photos by Devon Christopher Adams. I can love a folk song, but I don’t love all folk songs. I do love all folk singers. That is to say, I support all artists, but I don’t love all their art. I can rock with Zeppelin and roll with Marley. I can be Washed Out or a Radiohead. I can grind to an R&B song; I can grime Claire Boucher. I only country with Patsy or Johnny. My theme song is “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone. I don’t fall in love with bands by genre, by intent, or by decision. I fall in love with the moments they put me in---when they are on fire, and I’m in the mood to be lit. Delicious music makes me burn like a raving wooden boat dancing down river. Music is the soundtrack that captures and records our lives, as inseparable melody and nostalgia. It's really tough for me to write about every a band that killed it at Apache Lake Music Festival, that's like asking an artist to pick their favorite crayon in a box of 64. So instead I chose to shine the spot light on the ones that surprised me the most. Sometimes it’s just a good night to fall in love with a band that wants it.
