Weekly Feature #230a: Oh Land

In just one year, Danish pop star and NYC newcomer Oh Land has seamlessly danced her way into the Brooklyn music scene. After the former Danish ballerina’s career was cut short by injury, Oh Land reignited her passion for music and instantly took to exploring the psychedelic pop rock sound that has captivated audiences and made her a hit not only in her native Denmark, but in the US as well.  Her songs are laced with fairytale elements, heavy dance beats, and experimental rock, lyrically exploring the stories that have inspired both her movement and song.  Oh Land’s most recent EP, the self-titled Oh Land, produced by Dave McCracken, Dan Carey and Lester Mendez is a delightful assembly of innovative sounds, haunting melodies, and quirky machines. Her video for “Sun of a Gun” has been nominated for The Best Freshman Video at mtvU, and she has been lighting up the stage throughout her northeast fall tour.  A perfect blend of funk and class, the style and grace of this genetically gifted pop singer is sure to make even two left feet move right. - Read nancy Chow's interview with Oh Land here.

Spread the holiday cheer with free downloads from Tape Deck Mountain and a festive holiday video from He's My Brother, She's My Sister

It seems that everyone in their mid 20s has this fond memory of Christmas involving The Chipmunk's Christmas album, and its high pitched rendition of O Holy Night, screeching from their parent's hi-fi. I have nothing against rodents who choose to pursue the profession of musician, but as I've grown up I'd like to think my tastes have matured, albeit slightly (I like Anthony Green's solo album... save the criticism).

So while I pretend the rain is snow, I'm listening to Tape Deck Mountain's EP Christmas Was A Total Bummer. Comprised of "Christmas Time Is Here Again" and "Blue Christmas", I found myself picking out the melody from the snow flurry. You can pick it up for free on Bandcamp.

Then there is, of course, He's My Brother, She's My Sister covering Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody" in a video powered by JibJab's ElfYourself. There is just something ever so disturbing about watching your face sway around on a cartoon elf's body but HMBSMS pulls it off. Enjoy!

Look What I Did working on new EP, new videos, new music service

Several pieces of news concerning punk/metal/rock group Look What I Did have been circulating. First off, if you haven’t heard already, they’ve been working on a new EP to be titled Zanzibar III: Analog Prison. The concept record will continue the Zanzibar storyline from their first two albums, and it will only be available on cassette and vinyl; only one song will be released digitally. Details are fuzzy as far as who will be appearing on the album, but the band has said a variety of musicians will be contributing vocal performances, and Foxy Shazam’s Eric Nally has been named as a possibility. Additionally, Look What I Did has begun filming two music videos for songs off of Atlas Drugged, their most recent release. We can expect a variety of celebrity cameos, though no names have been offered yet.


Look What I Did vocalist Barry Donegan is also working on a new music service called Gazzmic, which is designed to change how bands and fans consume music. The hows and whys of this service are unanswered at this early point in development, but you can check out their temporary site here, and musicians can apply to participate in a limited, invitation-only and free closed beta program. Interested bands can contact info@gasmic.com to request a closed beta key, and participants will be able to promote their music over a free custom mobile application platform for the iPhone and Android Market. – Jessica Pace

Solar Temple Suicides Debut Release

Since their formation, Baltimore's Solar Temple Suicides have slowly been perfecting their own brand of drugged out, spacey haze. They preach long and tall effects-laiden, psychedelic lessons culled from ancient Yajurvedas of transformation and trial by fire, thrust from the sun to the outer edges of the universe. Their unabashed space rock tendencies and hallucinatory walls of sound drive their high volume live shows. Not fitting neatly into any extant mold, Solar Temple Suicides gather their influences together to form their own nebula.

This Saturday, STS held a release party at the Hexagon in Baltimore for their debut LP, Sentinels of the Heliosphere. It was self-recorded and produced at Studio 14 in the winter and spring of 2010, and released December 14th on Sleepy Records, with an east coast tour to follow in early 2011.
