XO Jasen shares "Kiss Me Dark Destroyer" music video and debut album

If you've been around Portland for a little while you may remember the electronic rap duo Serious Business. If not, that's okay. You can still appreciate the new music made by 1/2 of Serious B. by way of Jason Mampel. His solo endeavor, titled XO Jasen, brings fun and danceable beats in the same vein, yet takes on more important issues like sexual and gender identity. XO Jason's first video from his debut album Four Love Songs, "Kiss Me Dark Destroyer" is a visually intriguing interpretation of issues that many can relate to. The album also features guitar work from Nate Wey of the dreamy Souvenir Driver. Watch the video below!

Boston's Celebrity Look-Alikes play Middle East on 2/6

Back in September, Boston "psych dance-rock" quartet Celebrity Look-Alikes released its unabashedly mellow self-titled EP. Starting with the bass-zipped “Gargoyle” (streaming below), its loose yet controlled keys as chimerical as its titular beast, and ending with the swirling guitars of the existential musing “Revolving Door,” the effort shows a young, undeniably talented band searching for meaning while having fun along the way. Celebrity Look-Alikes play at Middle East in Cambridge MA on Saturday (2/6). – Zach Weg





Cold Beat Male Gaze and Mall Walk Open For The Soft Moon's Local Shows

The Soft Moon will be making a stop in the Bay Area on January 29th at The New Parish and January 31st at Slim's. Local bands Mall Walk and Cold Beat will be the supporting artists for the Oakland show and Male Gaze and DJ Omar Perez will be supporting the San Francisco gig with the Los Angeles based post industrial band, Sextile playing both nights. We love to see local bands earn great support opportunities like this!

The Soft Moon’s synthy, gothic album, Deeper is comprised of tracks that expose listeners to the dark imagery that wallpaper a stunning, manic mind. Deeper isn’t just your average dark, Bahaus-esque sound but replicates the kind of darkness that can only be heard miles from lights and civilization- the blackest of the black nights. With creepy, gorgeous layered beats, Deeper's tracks all have a similar sense of urgency equipped with quick stacatto beats. The haunting, distorted vocals layered with the foggy beats establish an anxious mood that you want to dance to. You’ll definitely want to come out to these shows as The Soft Moon will be performing his intense, dance floor-worthy remixes. Come out and dance into the darkness! -Lindsay Stickney

 

 





Still Flyin' Releases New Single - Love Both Sides

The San Francisco based band, Still Flying has released a new song from their fourth upcoming album, Perfect Future. The new album is entitled Love Both Sides!

Still Flyin's Sean Rawls had a child at the end of 2012, a few months after their most recent album (On A Bedroom Wall) was released, which spelled a day job and no more world tours. In his words, "My identity as 'dude in a band' turned into 'new dad who used to be in a band.'" Once an endless tinkerer who crafted songs constantly, he suddenly found himself with little time for any of that. He ended up having to carve out songwriting time between his son's naps, and one of these short bursts of songwriting resulted in three of Perfect Future's tracks ("Get Out of My Car", "Navarone" and "Tea Leaves").

The band ended up recording in much the same way -- all of the basic tracks were bashed out in three days of recording, which was much quicker than they were used to. Keeping with the general theme, the record was mixed very quickly by Phil Manley (Trans Am), and the result is raw, immediate, unedited and undeniably fun!
