Artist Spotlight: Easy Star All-Stars

22 Aug

Easy Star All-Stars are a reggae dub band that remakes entire famous rock albums and transforms them into unbelievable reggae songs. Their first release was a reggae reinterpretation of Pink Floyd’s, Dark Side of the Mood, called Dub Side of the Moon. Since then, the Easy Star All-Stars have recreated Radiohead’s, Ok Computer, and turned it into Radiodread and, most recently, redid The Beatles’, Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and called it Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band. It’s understandable that one would  be skeptical of this kind of remake of classic tunes, but the Easy Star All-stars flawlessly recreate these epic album. They make theses albums their own, but also make sure not to lose sight of the original. The Easy Star All-stars also released an original album called Until That Day and have redid Umphrey’s Mcgee’s (one of our favorite bands) Turn & Run and reshaped it into Turn & Dub. Check out the songs we posted and if you are a particular fan of either Pink Floyd, Radiohead, or The Beatles or just like what we have posted, I suggest you purchase the full albums because it’s amazing to hear and compare each album in its entirety to the original.

Concert Experience: Sound Tribe Sector 9 LIVE @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC August 12, 2010

17 Aug

Turn Up Your Speakers once again took their video cameras on the road to bring you the Concert Experience. Sound Tribe Sector 9 aka STS9 is an extremely talented band who puts on an unbelievable show. If electronic rock had a baby with jam music, Sound Tribe would be their offspring. Combine that with an unreal light show that creates more than just a show, but an experience and you have a Soundtribe Sector 9 concert. Sound Tribe Sector 9 is definitely a band to explore if you have yet to really listen to them. And if that doesn’t do it for you, they also are a band who are very politically and philanthropically active. Here’s a link to the trailer and website for their movie, Regeneration, about our apathetic generation. To see more videos and to buy their live shows, check out their website here. Sorry the videos are a little bit shaky, we were dancing.Enjoy!
