This new artist is the latest to hit the EDM scene! I must say I am a huge fan of EDM, as cliche as that sounds. I love the upbeat party thump thump thumps. Robert DeLong puts his own spin on EDM by using very rare instruments such as Wii remotes and joysticks hooked up to computer machines to make unique electronic sounds! Also, have I not mentioned that he was nominated as one of MTV’s new artists to watch out for for 2013? “Global Concepts” makes me wanna have a crazy dance party filled with booze and smoke and live the peak of my youth. I remember the first time I heard it I was confused by the beginning but the beat catches up with you and gets stuck in your head so that your humming to the tune all day long. Robert DeLong has definitely made an “X marks the spot” (p.s. X is his trademark, he has a red one on his shirt all the time) on my go-to party/summer playlist for 2013!
Ok the title is semi-true, but not literally. This new acoustic indie band from Dublin, Ireland has signed with Glassnote Records and recently released their singles “The John Wayne”. When I first heard of them I must admit that I was not that interested in a foreign band. First thing that popped into my mind was accents, accents, and folk music. However, after listening to a couple of their songs I grew to love them. I was fortunate enough to see this band preform twice within the last couple of months. I went to their first American show at Masonic Lodge in LA and I also saw them at the CMJ Music Festival in NYC. No doubt that this band will get far! Their audience loved them and they tend to crack jokes in between songs as well as provide their listeners with funny American journeys they’ve had like their first time at “Astroburger” in Hollywood. The Little Green Cars have such a unique and distinct voice, especially one of their lead singers Faye O’Rourke. Her voice blew me away; the pitch, tone, smoothness that she has when she chimes into songs is so pleasant to hear. The other musicians play their instruments perfectly and I feel that music is alive yet again with new raw talent! Below is one of my favorite songs, “Them”. Make sure to listen to Faye’s unique and distinct voice that captures emotion towards the song!
(Horrible quality pic, I know. But I just had to post this pic of when I met the band in October at Electric Lady Studios!)
