Phoenix - Lisztomania (Classixx Remix) [download]
Happy Sunday everybody. This is a sweet, disco-ed out version of Lisztomania by Classixx. Much more dancy, synthed out and and electronic than the original… this tune will surely get you stepping to the beat. More by Classixx to come!
10/5 Show Review - The New Division at Central, Santa Monica
The New Division - Starfield [download]
My buddy Alan and I decided on a whim on Wednesday to go to The Central S.A.P.C., which is by far my favorite local venue in Santa Monica. We wanted to check out these up and coming, indie/new wave rockers The New Division, who are made up of four very talented dudes from Riverside. They kind of remind me of Cut Copy or even Two Door Cinema Club, with more new-wavy reverberating vocals. It was one of the BEST spontaneous decisions I have made in a while.
Boy was I blown away by their set. Their harmony, the reverberating vocals along with the rocking guitar and poppy synth made for an absolutely fantastic show! I know that The New Division is going to go far. Wednesday was the first time I had ever heard of the band (as I repeatedly [intoxicated] told one of the band members), and I regard them very highly now. I plan on seeing them whenever they are playing locally in Los Angeles as I was pretty blown away by their energy. The vibes were good, the crowd was super fun and really into it as well, and everybody was dancing to their electronic-indie jams. Check out their latest album, Shadows, which they were giving away for free at the show! I ended up giving $20 to the little donation bin because I was so thrilled by their performance. Stay tuned…more of The New Division to come!
