Philly show NOT to be missed: UK’s finest SLAVES play Milkboy TONIGHT!!!!

10 Mar
Slaves Cher Dunn

SLAVES head to Milkboy tonight to rock you into next week. Don’t miss this epic show!

 

U.K. Punk duo SLAVES are one of my favorite bands on record and off, putting on one of the best live shows you will ever see. They’re a band you will never get tired of seeing live, bringing so much raw energy and intensity to delivering their songs to a sweaty, body-thrashing crowd-because let’s face it, there’s no other reaction to their music. After releasing their new album Take Control Slaves are heading to Milkboy tonight, Boston tomorrow playing at Great Scott, and Rough Trade in NYC on Sunday before headlining a very sick lineup at Huw Stephen’s party via BBC Radio 1 Presents at Latitude 30 at 1AM on March 14th at SXSW. You don’t want to miss seeing Slaves perform this epic new album live.

 

Tickets to tonight’s show at Milkboy are $17 and available here or at the door while tickets last. The show kicks off at 8:30PM with Lion in the Mane as support, so make sure you get their on time to see both bands!

New Music Friday: Lorde’s infectious new single “Green Light”

3 Mar
screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-3-45-14-pm

Lorde releases our new JAM “Green Light” produced by Jack Antonoff, off her upcoming album Melodrama! Try not to dance to this for three hours in a row…

Good LORDE. When is the last time you got chills from a pop song? For me it was when I first heard the new Lorde single “Green Light” yesterday. I subsequently watched the music video on repeat for the rest of the day until finally buying the single to just accept putting the song on repeat was the way to go. In the words of my good friend Scott, “Praise the LORDE AND MELODRAMA. BLEST”. For us, this new Lorde single is our 2017 Robyn, “Dancing On My Own” and a no-shame dance-a-thon happens no matter where we are when this song comes on.

Scott of course was referring to the name of the highly anticipated new Lorde album, Melodrama. “Green Light” is the first single we are hearing from this new Lorde masterpiece. “Green Light” is the epic, anthemic pop song of the year you can’t help but move to and get moved by. The single is produced by musical genius Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Steel Train, FUN.) and he makes brief appearance in the video playing the piano. The duo met up in October 2015 and proceeded to recorded the album together over 10 months, mostly in Antonoff’s home studio and portions in NYC’s Jimi Hendrix-founded  Electric Lady Studios. If this first single is any insight, this new album is going to be a massive, moving, story-telling, body-moving soundtrack of the year.

You can buy Lorde’s new single “Green Light” here, and just try to match how many times I’ve watched the video below:
