Song of the Day – Friday 8/13/2010 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. August 13, 2010

Happy Friday the 13th MizMuzers…what a CRAZY morning it’s been!!! 

Wow, what a CRAZY morning it’s been!!!  Did I say that already?  Well, there’s nothing like saying something twice, or naming your band Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (yes, that’s two Jr’s) to really make a point. 

Now what point Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott, the Detroit based duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are trying to make with their band name choice is unexplained, but I actually like it.  In fact, their debut EP, Horse Power was released on 7/27/2010 and their first single “Nothing But Our Love” is really good.  They do however, describe their EP as “a quasi-psych mix of folk, hip-hop inspired drum programming, and effervescent pop within which Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. machines a series of chicanes, straightaways, washboards, and u-turns that when assembled make for quite the interesting ride. The music is easy to become infatuated with, as if they hooked directly into your pleasure receptors and refused to relent and also possessing an amount of depth that makes you want to become a loyal partner.”

DEJJ will be playing a FREE show at the Milk Bar in San Francisco on 9/18/2010…just click here to get your RSVP into the show…

Song of the Day – Monday 7/26/2010 ceo July 26, 2010

Sweden’s Eric Berglund of The Tough Alliance has a mysterious new project, ceo.  His debut album, White Magic was released last month…

The video for “Come With Me” includes stuffed animals, champagne, masks, and knives.  Just your typical, everyday, Swedish house-party.  Via the band’s website is a description of what ceo is:

“ceo is the photosynthesis and an aria, it is silence and virginity lost in a gang bang.
ceo is a bird in space and ceo is the space in a bird.
ceo is saliva, patron, november rain and panic. it is a relief, a citrine and it is broken dreams.
ceo is the harlot, the prince the snake and the shaman. in a spyker c8 laviolette. and on a mirage.
ceo is raspberries and chlamydia, it is the shadow and it is a clapping game.”

Song of the Day – Monday 7/19/2010 The Limousines July 19, 2010

MizMuze must be in a dream within a dream, because what else could explain the fact that so much good music is coming out of little ol’ San Ho lately.  Or maybe I’m in a third-level dream-state just like Leo in the new blockbuster, Inception (which MizMuze gives two spins of a top up!) 

Whether it’s a dream or nightmare, there’s no doubt that indie music is finding its way to San Jose…

Today’s SOTD comes from San Jose electropop duo, The Limousines whose single “Very Busy People”  received national airplay and chart success last year.  Their debut album, Get Sharp will drop on 7/27/2010 via iTunes and Hot Topic…

Make sure to check out The Limousines when they chauffeur their way to the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on 9/3/2010.
