How To Survive The Music Industry

silverunity:I found this interesting.It’s a guide for musicians on what to really expect if you’re trying to break into the music industry. It was written by dance pop band Beatnik Turtle, and it’s a pretty interesting read even if you’re not in a band or couldn’t care less about the music industry. Enjoy.

Parlour Boys

Sasha: The Parlour Boys are a dance-pop band from Lexington Kentucky. Not surprisingly I first heard about them from the wonderful You Ain’t No Picasso, a fellow Lexington Resident. What I really love about this band is the energy they bring to every song. They’re currently in the last stages of signing a record contract […]

David and the Citizens

Sasha: David and the Citizens are an indie-pop band from Malmö, Sweden. I don’t like Swedish Fish and I assumed this band would be kind of gummy and gross too. But no! They’re as catchy and non-gummy as any band this side of the Atlantic. Not only that, but check out the cool album art […]

Slapstick

silverunity: I remember the first time I listened to Slapstick nearly 6 years ago. I bought a compilation CD on my way home from the mall for three dollars (I just wanted something new to listen to for the drive), and popped it into my CD player. Within about 12 seconds into the first track […]

The Groovie Ghoulies

Sasha:The Groovie Ghoulies show no love to the East Coast (it seems like they’re always touring California or Europe) but I still love them. The band, which includes Kepi, his wife Roach and their current drummer Scampi, write punk-pop songs about science fiction and movie monsters. In fact, if you’re a fan of science fiction […]

The Soviettes

silverunity: The best way to describe The Soviettes is through a little mental imagery. Close your eyes. Bravo for realizing that you can’t read with your eyes shut. Imagine the B-52s. Now imagine the B-52s taking a little too much Ritalin. Still with me? Good, now you have a good idea what The Soviettes sound […]

A Wii Bit of an Article for ya

Aquarian Beauty: Wii Too Much Fun in the Retirement Homes. (This article was posted on DailyTech.com yesterday February 22.) Now, the Midwestern Housewives are certainly not unfamiliar with the level of addiction associated with the Wii. I may add that there have been a few wii bowling Battles between the Housewives….and some tennis too. What […]

Atom and His Package

Sasha:SilverUnity introduced me to Atom and His Package (aka Adam Goren) a few years ago and I can’t say I was impressed, in fact I think I was annoyed. It didn’t last though, his songs are so catchy that you don’t even realize they’re in your head until you start wondering “why am I singing […]

The Mountain Goats

Sasha: I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write a Mountain Goats post. The Mountain Goats are John Darnielle and whoever he decides to make music with (currently the wonderful Peter Hughs.) I won’t attempt to explain what this band means to me because it would take pages and I don’t think anyone […]
