My apologies for getting behind on posts, giveaways and previews and interviews. Been extra busy these past few months and have been seriously slacking. So, I am doubling up on this with two great shows appearing back to back with our friends at Stage AE. We have ticket giveaways for both shows....as usual, just email us with your name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be selected at random.
Bassnectar has unleashed yet another brain-rattling release. His latest 6-track EP Freestyle, which features four originals and two remixes, is everything you would expect from mega-producer Lorin Ashton and more. Following the release of his 10th studio album Vava Voom, earlier this year, Freestyle is the newest of many EPs available for purchase on his record label Amorphous Music and iTunes.
The EP as a whole encompasses many of the dominant styles of today’s EDM scene. The title track opens the EP with tasty 808s and the aggressive, in-your-face lyrics of young hip-hop artist Angel Haze. Bassnectar cakes it all with his signature dubstep sound to remind you that you’re listening to the Bass King. Simply put, it’s his latest take on trap music.
Passion Pit really doesn't need much introduction. Running high off their latest release Gossamer, the band is expanding their sound and making waves with sold out shows across the country. From their press:
The band's first full-length studio album, Manners, was released in 2009. The song "Let Your Love Grow Tall" was featured in the TV series Ugly Betty. The album's second single, "To Kingdom Come," was used in the Rhapsody commercial for its iPhone application. The song "Moth's Wings" was used in the CW teen drama Gossip Girl and in the closing credits of HBO's Big Love.
Gossamer, which was released on Columbia Records, debuted at #4 on the Billboard top 200 and immediately earned rave reviews from the New York Times, The Guardian, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone magazine.
Both shows begin at 8p and doors at 7p. Tickets can be found here.
