This brand new British band has all the cool funky style of the 70′s with my favorite chill-wave beats to back it up. If you like this song “House” off their new album World, You Need a Change of Mind (Modular Records 2012), make sure to check out their video “Gee Up” and watch all the way through. They have a tendency to make fun of the indie music industry, and thereby themselves, in all their MVs and the parody is brilliant.
GASHCAT have some lovely folk/fuzz/rock going on and recently returned from wowing audiences at SXSW. They are originally from Louisiana, then started up in Austin, and for now they are not really based out of anywhere.
Straight out of The Odyssey, the singer for Rhye will melt your heart like a Siren. Not much is known about Rhye; they released an EP about a month ago and are keeping their identities covered for now. All that’s known is that the group consists of two people who are both in other bands. Until they release more info or music, we’re stuck not knowing. But when her voice is this amazing, I’m alright with that.
“It Feels So Good” is a fresh track from the new on-the-radar duo AlunaGeorge. Aluna’s beautifully soft R&B voice fits perfectly over the electro/synthy vocal background. And, yes— it does feel so good.
You kids who are are sticking around or leaving a bit late for spring break are in luck: this Friday, March 16, Girls are coming to The Gothic Theatre in Denver along with another fantastic group of West-coasters, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check this vid to see what could be in store for you in a matter of three short days.
Remember when I said “Starships” was the best song at the moment? I totally lied. Die Antwoord will show you why with “I Fink U Freaky.”

Yes I forgot my song of the day Thursday, but I couldn’t resist posting one now. This song spoke to me last night, alors, here you are. Enjoy.
I first heard Pearly Gate Music at a terrific record store in Montreal and it was love at first listen. This song is from their self titled debut album released in 2010 on Barsuk Records.
After seeing these guys two days ago at Snowball, I couldn’t not post this song. This was my second time seeing them (last year at Sasquatch music festival being the first), and her voice was just as beautiful as last time. I think I’m in love…
Despite my mixed feelings about this whole alternate personality thing that Nicki has going, I still respect this song. Part club banger, part pop rap rant, all awesome; Harajuku Barbie has done it again.

This Saturday, 3/3/2012, join The SOCC as we revisit that Decade of decades; that cultural crossroads; that pre-millennial nether-zone; that halcyon era of our early adolescence; the Nineties. Of course, Nineties revivalism is nothing new–Doc Martins are cool again, we all miss Napster (Down with SOPA), Twin Peaks, Blah Blah Blah–but surely there’s more to be exhumed. Let us remind you of all that you’ve forgotten/repressed. Let us transport you back to your own juvenility (a la Juvenile of “Back That Thang Up” fame). We’ll all be in it together.
Jake Brownell + Josh Cuevas
Anna Forster-Smith + Erin O’Neill
Kathleen Hallgren + Zoe Isabella (Smath and Joe)
