If you guys are interested in
reading even more about Fun Fun Fun Fest then I suggest jumping over to the
My review and pictures are there along with the same from Doug Freeman.
There's even some commentary from a few of the local artists that were in
attendance. It's seriously good stuff.
Perhaps you can even check it out as you listen to the amazingly tasty EP
that I have today. Enjoy.
- Fruit Loopy:
Everything about this gem and the artist responsible for it
is a bit strange. However, it's also equally awesome.
See, the main brain behind the bizarro-funk jam is known as
Alexander Antebi and in addition to being a talented artist
he also is participating in a charity event called Movember, which is meant
to help raise awareness and money for prostate cancer.
Even better is the fact that Antebi is the World Imperial
Mustache Champion, so he is using his facial hair skills to
help others. Awesome.
No More The Fingers - ORGY:
I love what
these guys are doing. Their sound is just straight up
indie rock that's laced with energy and dipped in a vat of
pure catchiness. Better yet, the trio also do enough
to not actually sound like it's just three dudes pounding
away on their instruments; there's a real sense of
flexibility and confidence. The band's self titled
album is out in a couple of days, and I would recommend
picking it up if you have an itch for some quality indie
Colossus - It's Not Funny:
This song is a little all over the place. The
beginning plays like something very similar to Maroon 5, and
then the rest moves all around doing as it pleases with only
the words quirky and pop in mind, which is interesting to
say the least. The quartet's brand new album will be
out on Afternoon Records, who seem to have an endlessly deep
roster of solid artists, on November 27. My guess is
that it will probably be pretty good.
Mary Onettes - Explosions:
It would appear
that the US release of this band's album is getting rather
close. I, if you remember, posted about their dreamy
sound earlier in the year, so this is honestly nothing more
than a word of advice to go out and pick up their Labrador
Records effort when it lands on store shelves December 4.
I promise that you won't be disappointed.
Are The Willows - Winter Is Almost Over:
It seems as if every time I turn around I have something
from Pete Miller in my inbox. A couple of times this
year it's been his work with Red Fox Grey Fox, and now it's
his solo project known as We Are The Willows.
Fortunately, this stuff is much softer in its presentation,
so the final output is not only different but totally worth
your time. Snatch his EP off his Myspace page if you
like what you hear.
