WOLF TRIAGLE 586x600 Hidden Gem: Story of the Running Wolf *LA Electro duoStory of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80′s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com.

They just dropped their first song/video from their debut EP, “Stratospheric”. Stream and download their EP below.

Watch the video to “Stratospheric” below. (more…)

New Kingdom – Naked Time EP

January 16th, 2011 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie, Rock |

20100623 NEWKINGDOM New Kingdom   Naked Time EPMy cousin Kevin told me about New Kingdom a couple years ago as Oren Yoel, keyboardist of New Kingdom, produced most of Asher Roth’s debut album, Asleep In The Bread Aisle, which I thought was a dope album that deserved more praise.

While Oren produced hip-hop material, New Kingdom is an alternative rock band from LA. However each of the four band members bring their own styles/tastes and New Kingdom has sounds of soul, pop, funk and hard rock. Additionally, New Kingdom has shared the stage with Asher Roth, B.o.B and Janelle Monae.

Recently they released their first project, Naked Time EP (download), and while I didn’t expect much, I was really blown away with how catchy and fun their music has become. Below are two of my favorite’s off the 7-track EP.

Burn It Down
When Can I See You
