Local Music: Frantic Recovery

9 Sep

Frantic Recovery is a punk rock/alternative band out of Salem, VA. This music video for “Bullets in a Bottle” is one of the most creative concepts for a song I’ve seen. I really enjoy how the video was filmed and I think it goes very well with the song. Check out Frantic Recovery’s myspace here to listen to some of there other songs and pick up their albums here on itunes.

Local Music: The Lords of Liechtenstein

8 Sep

The Lords of Liechtenstein are an acoustic rock duo straight out of Homdel, NJ. These two brothers’ catchy melodies and great vocals are reminiscent of the music of Matt Costa and Marcy Playground and remind me of happy times relaxing in the sun. What really stikes me about the band is their versatility. The duo creates a very full sound in their music and utilizes a variety of instruments including ukulele, mandoline and piano. Although they do not have a drummer during live performances, Noah covers the drums and percussion as well as the ukulele and keyboard on their demo tracks. Be sure to check them out on their facebook here. Also if you like their music and live near New Brunswick, NJ they will be playing a show at The Court Tavern on October 8. Check out their facebook event here for more info. Happy Listening!

New Kings of Leon! – Radioactive

8 Sep

I’m not going to lie and say I have been a fan of Kings of Leon since the very beginning. I haven’t. I only started listening after they got big (then listened to their stuff, old and new), but either way I really like Kings of Leon and think they are a really talented band. This is their new single just released. It keeps the same kind of sound as their previous album, but personally I think it really works for them. Check it out.

Artist Spotlight: Thousands Of One

2 Sep

Something great aways results when you have a band whose music acts as a voice for social change. “This is the essence of Thousands Of One – to build connections between people and live inspired lives, striving to bring that inspiration into the world around us.” Thousands Of One’s music covers a large spectrum of music from hip-hop to rock and reggae, jazz, Motown, West African drumming, funk and soul. Their music has moved crowds around the country as much as their activism has and their album SoulForce is definitely worth downloading on iTunes. If you’re interested in getting involved in with some of their social movements you can check them out on their website here.

Local Music: The Knowmads

31 Aug

Not only did I hit the road to bring you guys a live concert experience, I am also proud to announce that this will be our first Local Music Artist Spotlight! The Knowmads are a four piece band hailing from Marlboro, NJ. Although the band has only been together for a little over a month, the chemistry between the band members is incredible. They are all very talented musicians who really have a feel for music. Their jams are awesome and make you want to dance and their ability to seamlessly change genres on a dime serves as a tribute to their talent. This is the second show they have ever played together and it was a great time (I wasn’t at their first show because I was seeing Sound Tribe Sector 9). The members have gone off to college for now but come Thanksgiving Break I will hopefully have some new music from The Knowmads for everyone to enjoy. I’ve posted some live videos along with a sound board recording so that everyone can put them on their ipods and and enjoy their music on the go 🙂

P.S. If any other bands want us to post their music, feel free to email your stuff with a small description of the band to turnupyourspeakers@gmail.com
