New Artist: Saint Michel

Saint-Michel-Katherine8-640x263

some boys in stripes (maybe) are here from France on Monday for a special show. Saint Michel are in from France, Versailles to be specific (Daft Punk, Air and Phoenix all hailed from here). And if that isnt dreamy enough then be sure to watch the video for their single ‘Katherine’ to get your heart rate /crush going …and fall for their beautifully heartbreaking lyrics for ‘Katherine’ below.

Monday’s show will be in NYC at Le Baron and if you havent been to Le Baron yet,  dont miss this one. Le Baron is open 11-4am daily, located on Mulberry Street. Encore is running this one and an RSVP is required.

New Artist: Teen Mom

meantom_small

Threesome Teen Mom are a new one from DC. Their debut EP is called ‘Mean Tom’. Sean Dalby on drums, Tom MacWright on bass and Chris Kelly is vocals/guitar – as they put it – “Just three young men, but with the strength of many more.” Yes.

I love how the ladies at Goldest Egg describe them – “hushed honey-sweet lyrics juxtaposed with giant dark slabs of distortion and manic racing drums.” ‘I Wanna Go Out’ is my first pick followed by ‘Say My Name’… their sound is innocent teenage angst mixed with some love-anger, yes love-anger…they’re kind of like your favorite high school band that you needed to follow to the woods somewhere to find their secret gigs.

instant <3.

I Wanna Go Out below and check out the video- we would have embedded it if we could…

New Animal – Falling Up

New Animal

New Animal recently released a video for the single “Falling Up, which you can watch here.  The Atlanta-based duo of Kris Hermstad and Derek Burdette started collaborating in 2010, and recently released two new songs, “Falling Up” and “They Won’t Let Me Go,” via Old Flame Records.  They are currently available as digital downloads, with a limited edition cassette version to follow.  “Falling Up” is an emotional song on its own, but one that has existing layers that become more apparent as you listen to/watch the song put to a visual narrative.

Humans – Possession

Humans Traps

We last wrote about Humans following the release of Avec Mes Mecs (October 2010) and Humans (January 2011), both of which we had been crushing on for a while.  Now, we have a new love interest – the 10-track album Traps (March 2012),which includes three remixes.  Recently, the Vancouver-based production/performance duo Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq have opened for Junior Boys, How to Dress Well, Grimes, and more.  Their first two singles “De Ciel” and “Horizon” off this new album are now followed by “Possession,” for which they just released a trailer for an upcoming video.  A full-length from Humans is in the works.
