The Damnwells - Golden Days movie trailer

I love moments when you are driving listening to the radio and suddenly you hear a new song that you need to immediatley run to the record store and buy (or rather, rush home to the computer to download the track off Itunes) . . . This happened to me a few weeks ago when I was listening to Liquid Todd "Zeros and Ones" on Sirius Left Of Center. The song is "GOLDEN DAYS" by THE DAMNWELLS.

The Damnwells are one of those bands that I remember seeing the name, but never listening to. Shame on me. I have been missing out on some great music, and I know I'm not alone. The Damnwells were signed to Epic records, got dropped, released their 2nd album on an indie label & end up touring with big acts like The Fray, Blue October, and The Dixie Chicks. Good thing they had a camera crew following them around when all this was happening! I hope this documentary (called "GOLDEN DAYS") brings similar success to The Damnwells as "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart" did for WILCO.

KROQ adds Peter Bjorn & John!?!?! WOW.

A change is in the air. The current state of the music biz is so exciting. I thought Hell would freeze over sooner than have KROQ playing songs that are still featured on cool music blogs. (not to mention my HELL YA! mixes)

Kroq is already playing Silversun Pickups, Cold War Kids, Mickey Avalon, TV On The Radio, Modest Mouse, The Shins & the Kooks. Now they just added PETER BJORN & JOHN "Young Folks"!!!! The Whistling Song!!!! YAAAAAAY!!!! Why couldn't they have been like this when I worked there?

Incase you haven't been keeping up with your indie-rock here is the video for Peter Bjorn & John's "Young Folks"

Good Job KROQ. Ease up on the Hinder and keep spinning the PB&J!

Leon Jean-Marie is going to be huge + Club YO YO

This guy is so top secret I can't even get an mp3 or share his video. SO . . . here below is a link to his myspace page to stream his 2 songs. Expect big things. Listen to the song "Scratch" and check out the video when it is available. I smell a huge summertime hit. Perhaps this years 'crazy'?


He did a mini UK tour with my favorite superstar MIKA. Plus he is set to play Club YO YO on March 22nd. YO YO is the coolest club in the UK - it's where LILY ALLEN played her first gigs, Mark Ronson & Aaron Lacrate are always stopping by to DJ, you get the idea. JG and I got to check out Kate Nash play @ Club YO YO when we went to London in December.

Those guys at YO YO sure know how to do it right. Seb Chew you are the man.
