From our Open Blog: Paskey

Paskey makes something along the lines of new-wave alternative pop-rock. Influences orbit The Killers, R.E.M., U2, New Order and Joy Division. Imagine rhythmic programming, synths, echoing guitar lines, hushed vocals. A modern artist with a summer cottage in 1987. Just released a video for "These Saturday Nights" that was recorded on a hundred-dollar camera and edited over four evenings. For a limited time you can download the latest album, "What Goes Up," for free from the band’s website.



This week Jenny Gillespie put her new album Kindred on bandcamp for her fans and the world to stream. The physical edition of the album will be released on July 13th, but you can now become familiar with this new and beautiful album before the release show on July 17th at Martyrs. Kindred picks up where last year’s Light Year album left off, and pushes forward. One of my favorite tracks from the album has to be “Golden Central”. It is an elegant piano ballad in the same vein as Sarah McLaughlin or Tori Amos.

Kindred is a sonically rich album that should garner much national attention. You can see Jenny Gillespie perform at Martyrs on July 17th.


Danimal vs Animal

I don’t think this video could be any better. You have Ok Go, Ira Glass, The Muppets, and Zach Galifinakis.
