WRITER Release ‘Brotherface’ And Stream Album In Its Entirety‏

November 2nd, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Rock, synthpop, Techno |

From “Head to Toe” to “Dry Hands” you will not find me pressing pause while listening to WRITER‘s new LP Brotherface. Hailing from Brooklyn, brothers James and Andy Ralph have a sort of fuzzy, psychedelic sound that is much more than your average two-guys-standing-on-stage-with-guitars. They are a unique combination of ghetto-tech meets garage-rock with remnants of Young Buffalo and Of Mice & Men.

All ten tracks on the LP bring something new to the table in order to keep you listening and keep you on your feet. The songs are briefer than most, but artfully so, as to not be too repetitious  like many bands unfortunately are these days.

The end of “Barefoot Art” features a shout chorus of just the boys with a tambourine which is the perfect example of their ness. Their layered sounds and defined structure will keep you hooked and leave you wanting more.

But for now, download their cover of Santigold‘s “Desperate Youth”, and when you are finished with that, stream the new album here courtesy of Spinner.

The band has also created a 28-minute visual stream, tailored to each individual track:

Yesterday, I attended the Mad Decent Block Party in Los Angeles. I saw performances from Zeds DeadTheophilus London, Munchi, Paul Devro, 3Ball MTY, Bonde Do Role, Clockwork, Casey Veggies and Paper Diamond. I pretty much saw every act I wanted to and saw at least one that reaffirmed my belief he will not be a breakout star. Read my review below. (more…)

Culture Collide Festival review pt.1 with Classixx, Harvey, CSS

October 12th, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Dance Music, Electropop, House, Pop, Reviews, Rock, Techno |

Last weekend featured the 2nd annual Culture Collide festival, a 4-day event in Los Angeles presented by Filter Magazine. I went on Saturday and Sunday and it was a lot of fun.  Multiple venues such as Echoplex, Taix, The Echo, ReFORM, and many more featured various acts from all over the world which were all very enjoyable to listen to. On Saturday I saw Classixx, DJ Harvey, and CSS perform and wow did they impress.

Classixx is an electronic duo from Los Angeles.  They are absolute beasts and have a very bright future ahead of them. Their laid back and unique style make for great music live and in the headphones. The two remix a lot of great tracks adding in some of their original work creating great vibes with their beats as well as very upbeat and heaving dancing tracks. Check out two of my favorite of theirs below.

Reginald’s Groove – “Cosmic Kids” (Classixx Remix) [Download

“Into the Valley” (featuring Karl Dixon) [Download

DJ Harvey from Cambridge, England has been very influential with disco house all over the world for many years. This guy is a very old school electronic music man but in a good way. He loves playing super long sets and I was extremely impressed by his energy and great original tracks. He still continues to sell out shows in different continents and for good reason. His chill/laid back vibes with his energetic style equals a great electronic sound. Check out what I’m talking about below with a couple awesome tracks by him.

Locussolus (DJ Harvey) – “Little Boots”

Locussolus (DJ Harvey) – “I Want It”

CSS which is an abbreviation of Cansei de Ser Sexy is a rock band who comes from Sao Paulo, Brazil. They were the headliners of this show and absolutely killed their set. In a packed EchoPlex venue they lit it up with their energy and pizazz. The have a great alternative rock/pop sound with Brazilian flavor which is why it is no surprise that they have had much success in the United States as well as all over the world. My two favorite tracks  by them are below.

“Lets Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” [Download]

“Move” [Download]

Look out for part 2 tomorrow of our Culture Collide Festival review provided by siegZ.
