ABOUT THE BANDS:

EOTO
“With no two shows alike, fans have come to expect the unexpected. Changes in mood, energy, and inspiration are reflected—in real-time—by rhythmic and melodic shifts in the music as EOTO makes their way through a plethora of tools and techniques. The duo moves effortlessly from choppy dubstep to whip-smart, four-on-the-floor house to psychedelic trip-hop. It’s a dance marathon, but everyone’s in it together.

MATERIALIZED
Materialized is an ongoing musical collaboration built on the core of a lifelong friendship between Grammy Award winning keyboardist (Mighty) Dave Pellicciaro and drummer Dale Fanning.
Based in Oakland, CA the band builds their energized sound on big beats and sonic scapes. To keep the music constantly growing they engage a revolving cast of talent for their live shows ranging from a powerhouse two-man match to trios, full band with a horn section, singers, video and dancers including their main associate, Cuban-born bassist Carlitos Del Puerto (Bruce Springsteen, Herbie Hancock).
Materialized has released their EP CD “Songs About Music” and are dropping three fresh singles on Feb 1st. Check these high octane adventures on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify and Pandora.

Love In The Circus
Love in the Circus features unique and seductive melodies that combine and blur the lines of electronica, rock, jazz and blues with sultry, edgy, museful hooks.
The group was formed by singer/bassist Leanna Rachel and producer/guitarist Chris Brickler. Curtis Cunningham joined the group on drums, Eric Hargett on keys/saxophone and Cha Chi on percussion/synths. The High Priestess and Leah Zeger add beautiful textures on the harp and violin, respectively.

Definitely an iconic video from the 80′s, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ “Don’t Come Around Here No More” is definitely memorable right down to the end when everyone eats Alice of Wonderland as a cake. Get ready to go on a little trip with this video.

An interesting piece of music video trivia:

Who is that guy sitting on top of the toadstool smoking a hookah and playing sitar? That is none other than Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, who first wrote the song for Stevie Nicks but finished it with Tom Petty.

Noise Pop celebrates its 20th birthday in 2012, and its lineup once again features the expert curation of fresh-faced artists that we’ve come to expect: Die AntwoordBleachedGrimes and oOoOO are among the names that hit the scene recently and started making waves in a hurry. But there’s a hidden story in Noise Pop’s 2012 lineup – a slick tribute, on this notable anniversary, to its rich 20-year history of highlighting these acts on the rise. One need only look to the veterans returning to the festival’s lineup for 2012.

Of course, there’s headliner Flaming Lips, whose “Boombox Experiment” at Noise Pop 1998 provided a glimpse of the band that would establish themselves the kings of psychedelia in the following years. Archers of Loaf played Noise Pop in 1997. Imperial Teen, 1999. Built to Spill, while not technically Noise Pop alums, have been around longer…

At The Drive-In have reunited to release This Station Is Non-Operational

At The Drive-In surprised us today with an out-of-the-blue tweet announcing their reunion in 2012. It simply read: “¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL”

After the news broke, ATDI’s official site broke under heavy traffic, but Fearless records reveals some information about their return. On May 24th, 2012, the band will release This Station Is Non-Operational, an 18-song compilation bundled with covers, BBC sessions, B-sides and a DVD of music videos and other footage compiled over the band’s 9-year history. 30-second clips and a promo landing page are on display at Fearless’ website.

ATDI have not yet announced tour plans, but with Coachella rolling out its lineup announcement, it’s fun to speculate they may show up at the festival this year. Coachella has a reputation for prompting major reunions on an annual…

Can music videos get much more classic than Michael Jackson‘s? How about this one? Michael Jackson’s, “Thriller,” not only has classic zombie dance moves that have been repeated over and over again but it also has a pretty classic lineup of talent featuring Director John Landis fresh from An American Werewolf in London, Elmer Bernstein (who composed incidental music), makeup artist Rick Baker, and überghoul Vincent Price as narrator. Zombie music videos can’t get much better.

Damn, I love Talking Heads videos. Why aren’t videos cool like this these days? Seems to me that videos used to be more artsy and less about glitz and glam (although there are some musicians out there that make some pretty artsy videos these days). Remember the video for the Talking Heads’, “Once In A Lifetime?” It was so classically Talking Heads, so classically David Byrne, and so classically 80′s that how could you forget it? When it debuted a year after its 1980 release, “Once In A Lifetime” became one of the most rotated videos on MTV. The video was also later exhibited at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Thirty years later, it is still an iconic video. Check it out:
