Mike Golden & Friends

There is really nothing to hate about the approach and delivery of Mike Golden & Friends. As you read through the posts on their blog and listen through their debut ep Trees Pt 1. This group of musicians is dedicated to having fun, and making songs that you can stomp you foot to.

Trees EP Pt 1 will be released this week and will be available through the bands website and on Amazon.


Crunk In Public

The latest EP, Crunk In Public, from the electro-hop duo Boomjuice is going to be a mainstay in my car stereo this Spring. This is the second release from Vapor Eyes and Capriquarius, and it finds them delving deep in the electronic and dance elements of their sound. Both of the duo’s releases can be downloaded for free. This new EP features collaborations with Keith Masters, Me Myself & Rhyme, and Ellen Loves Everything. It also features an interesting Radiohead cover, and as free download is absolutely worth getting.

Boomjuice will be performing on April 6th at Darkroom with Cars For Miles and Tribella, and at Double Door on April 28th.


Writing with Bloody Mary

This is not the video to watch right before bed, but Teith (pronounced Keith) create sounds like no body else.
