From the college town bars of San Luis Obispo, California, comes the band Still Time: a blues-rock band reminiscent of Ben Harper and Dave Matthews Band.
The band is now making select singles available to KBOO and the Free Music Archive.
Hay Que Luchar is the closing track off the latest release from Portland's own Spanish-language anarcho-punk band, Adeil@s.
The album can now be found, in its entirety, at the Free Music Archive.
No Magick, the first full-length album from World’s Greatest Ghosts is a nod to childhood narratives of make-believe monsters and plywood clubhouses. With lyrics referencing ghouls chasing you through mazes and houses sinking in quicksand, this album presents its nostalgic concepts with a dice-throwing Dungeon and Dragons filter.
Friends reliving their clubhouse fantasies may not be such an abstract concept for this group. The Ghosts comprise of two brothers, Casey and Jesse Laney, and a college sweetheart, Emily Laney (Jesse's wife). Brandon Anderson has been with the group since its beginnings in the deep South. And now in Portland, Eric Ambrosius has joined them, replacing their long-time drummer. You can find more from the album on the Free Music Archive.
No Magick is produced by the Portland label Lucky Madison, run by local rocker Kevin O'Connor from the dynamic group, Talkedemonic. WWG will be playing this year's SXSW festival in Austin Texas, and be sure to check out their Myspace page for updates. Long live D'n'D synth-rock.
In these times of chaos, uncertainty, war and rumors of war, fear, doubt, and CHANGE, comes a band to lift our spirits, raise our confidence and feed us love via hard dance beats and psychedelic-electronic production. This band is MEGA*CHURCH. Just listen to "You Got the Power!" and tell me you wont be humming it down the street for the next week with a great smile, stoked to make the best of your day.
The title track, "Us>", is a hip hop inspired power house, reminding how to see each other without our egos flyin'. The "2 nite and 4 eva Sermon" is a reminder of everything you learned reading the great religious texts but palatable for the times we're in. "Hypergospel" is another dance floor power pop tune laying down the mission. Listen to the full album on the Free Music Archive.
Sure, MEGA*CHURCH could become a cult, but these boys and girls aren't trying to take your mind away. To the contrary, they're reminding use of the power we'll be needing in our age of chaos. Thank your lucky stars that someone in Pop music cares about something beyond themselves.
LOVE - SEAN
Currently, MEGA*CHURCH is on a live performance hiatus. Matthew Carey, the pastor of dance, is in Shanghai China doing his day job, spreading the gospel until October. Their debut CD, "Us>" will be made available to the public via www.megachurchlovesyou.org.
