Since I started Daytrotter in 2006, it’s always been my goal to do as much to promote and expose great music/bands to as many people as we possibly could – helping them sell records, get people out to shows and just generally surviving as artists. We have tens of thousands of people on the site daily and an email list that goes out to over 300,000 people every day. Now we’re going to give bands the opportunity to benefit financially – forever – when they tape a Daytrotter session.
Indie-punk foursome Mixtapes has premiered a new song, “Bad Parts,” from their forthcoming album,Ordinary Silence, today at Altpress.com. Due out on June 25th from No Sleep Records, Ordinary Silence is available now for pre-order at http://nosleeprecords.com/
Funky and weird, glitchy and smooth, Royal Canoe’s newest release, the full-length Today We’re Believers, is a strange amalgam of sounds, rhythms, and genres. The band, out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, succeeds on its own terms, using every influence and interest they have to put together this restless and fun collection of songs.
Computer Magic’s newest single, “A Million Years”, is an indie dance-pop slice of heaven. Full of synth lines, danceable and catchy, it has a very repetitive chorus that easily gets stuck in your head; even now “I miss you love, I miss you love” is going through my head on a loop. The vocals are effect heavy, but they blend in well with the synth-filled arrangement and the mid-tempo. It’s very easy to imagine this song on at a club, bodies swaying back and forth and arms in the air.
A folk-rock side project from the guitarist of Coheed & Cambria, Travis Stever, Davenport Cabinet strikes the right note on the side of epic without going too far into the prog-metal waters Coheed is known to inhabit. Their newest full-length, Our Machine, is full of indie rock anthems and quasi-connected jams that will call to mind his other band, but without being dependent on them.
We all like stupid fun. It’s a proven fact that a good fart joke will send the average man into a small fit of laughter. Ted is a 120 min fart joke.
