Sci-Fi Synthpop Invigorates on Night Drive's "Trapeze Artist Regrets"

 80's nostalgia percolates through all fissures of this danceable synth-noir track called "Trapeze Artist Regrets. Night Drive seemingly indvertently created this tack:"Trapeze Artist Regrets was never suppose to happen. We were writing something else for a short film and became bored, so we changed the bpm, started shifting things around and all of the sudden we had this groove we liked.  We just started working backwards from there. The title came first, a sorta metaphor for disaster; it’s about watching someone you care about make the same mistake over and over again and not being able to do anything about it. Just hoping they pull through.”

Comprised of Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon, Night Drive is a Texas-based electro duo who draw inspiration from sci-fi and modern electropop. “Trapeze Artist Regrets” is from their debut self-titled record, which will be out on June 16th. Having toured alongside CHVRCHES, Austra, Robert DeLong, and Miami Horror, Night Drive is getting ready to hit the stages again.

The Cuckoos Bring Alan Solomon in to "Get It On"

In many ways musical exploration seems to mirror global exploration in that most of of the world has been charted and mapped. Some might even go so far as to say the heady days of musical experimentation which figured so prominently in the 1960’s has sunk into a digital bog of repetitive mimicry. Like Sir Earnest Shackleton and Colonel Percy Fawcett before them the Cuckoos are showing the world that the spirit of adventure, exploration, and experimentation are very much alive and well. This is nowhere more evident than the Cuckoos recent collaboration with Alan Salomon on a remix of “Get It On”.
    The Cuckoos psychedelic rock DNA (think The Doors and Pink Floyd) has been written about ad infinitum, however the recent treatment of "Get It On" speaks volumes about the progressive spirit of the band. While it is easy to channel past and contemporary sounds, the Cuckoos have found a way to marry the two and that requires substantial courage and creativity. Make sure to check out the "Get It On" remix and keep an eye out for the future musical explorations of the Cuckoos.

Jesse of Pure X Rolls Out Single "De-pression"

Jesse Jerome Jenkins V (Pure X) has embarked on a solo adventure that explores dreamy instrumentation and self-recording that renders an enigmatic but oddly charming sound. "De-pression" is the second single from Jesse's debut solo LP, Hard Sky. Self-recorded in Corpus Christi, TX.  Jesse has a knack for atmospheric and playful melodies that slowly drift through saturated soundscapes.  His bouyant vocals bring levity to the languid instrumentation but succeeds in creating an earworm that beckons the listener to continue on.
