Above is the trailer for Fab’s upcoming EP the Resurgence which drops 2/26/2013. “The Resurgence” will be presented by DJ Touch Money, and DJ Corey Grand. If you watch the trailer you can see why Fab is one of most buzzed about young rappers in Columbus.
Though a coincidence – a tour date in Columbus a day after their 7th album is released – you can pretend like Mice Parade’s show at The Tree Bar on Wednesday night is a CD release party.
Candela‘s a great late-night listen – layers of sounds filling each song leading some to label Mice Parade as a shoegazer band. The hypnotic sway of the first single, “This River Has a Tide”, doesn’t prove contrary to this idea.
Fidlar and Wavves are touring together. They are also fun punk bands that are on Mom & Pop Records.
Fidlar has a video for “Wait for the Man” below. It is on their self-titled album which has song titles like “Max Don’t Surf”. “Cheap Beer”, and “Wake Bake Skate”.
Ugh. This looks so sick. It’s from an upcoming documentary narrated by Henry Rollins about DC graffiti legend Cool “Disco” Dan. It is tight because it shows how Disco Dan’s contribution to local culture helped lighten the mood in our Nation’s Capital during the onslaught of the crack epidemic in the 80’s.
“Still Hanging On” is off Lee Field & The Expressions 2012 album Faithful Man.
Lee Fields will tour with Lady during the Spring. You can peep the dates here.
Lady is Nicole Wray’s and Terri Walker’s new project which is produced by Leon Michaels and Jeff Silverman. Lady’s self-titled album with be released March 12th on Truth & Soul. Below is Lady’s single “Money”.
