The 88 release new song 'Center of the Sun' for your supreme downloading pleasure.

LA rockers The 88

Alternative rockers The 88 are gearing up to release their new self-titled album, to be released on iTunes on September 14 with a physical copy hitting the shelves on September 28. In anticipation of their first proper release since their breakup with Island Records, the band is offering up 'Center of the Sun', complete with its keyboard driven hook and sing-along lyrics, as a download on AOL Music.

The album was recorded at Grandmaster Recorders in Hollywood under the watchful eye of engineer/mixer Andrew Alekel (Weezer, Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age). The band rehearsed relentlessly in preparation for the studio. It paid off, with the results sounding full without mounds of overdubs and polish, and faithfully translating their energetic stage presence.

The band gained notable attention earlier this year when they released the digital single 'Live is the Thing' which was recorded completely on the iPhone. Their DIY ethic not only fuels projects like that but has also earned them an amazing tour pedigree - it has landed them on tour with the likes of The Flaming Lips, The B-52's, The Smashing Pumpkins, and the late Elliot Smith. Their latest juant found them across the pond on tour with Ray Davies (The Kinks). Davies can be heard lending himself to the gang vocals on 'They Ought to See You Now' which will appear on the new release.

Seasons premiere new video for 'Light, Lost'

LA band Seasons

If your idea of a good music video includes a beautiful girl running away from sandman-esque stalkers set to the flowing vibes of Season's song 'Light, Lost', well then this video is for you. If you didn't see the band premiere the video earlier this week after their set at Spaceland then you can certainly watch it here. The video is directed by Christopher J. Ewing and is nothing less than delightful.


MiM0SA puts a spell on us all

MiM0SA by Angela Dawn

22-year-old producer phenom, MiM0SA, will be dropping his glitched up, dubstepped, mini-LP Silver Lining on October 4th on Multi Music Records. A month is too long to wait, so we're sharing his blistering remix of Nina Simone's classic 'I Put a Spell on You' as a free download. Classic, groovy, and a bit gritty, it'll conjure up inflences like trip-hop masters Massive Attack.

If you like other LA producers like Rusko or Baths (A Deli LA personal favorite) then you'll fall right in line with MiM0SA. He's been making waves at festivals like Cochella and Burning Man, and he's embarking on a US tour that will bring him to the Music Box/Henry Fonda on Sept. 23rd.


The Song Shop: An Interview with Say Anything's Max Bemis

Max Bemis and Say Anything

If all of our shoulder devils that urge excess and temptation left our consciences to prevail and formed an indie rock band, Say Anything would be it.  With content ranging from sex, love, religion, drugs and all that’s stemmed in controversy, their music stands as an eccentric journey through the life of a bipolar, dirty-minded rock star that is bold enough to speak his mind.  Through the use of metaphors and one-liners packed with double meanings, front man Max Bemis always manages to conjure a bizarre twist on almost anything he blurts out.

It is no surprise that the filterless front man who penned lyrics such as, “When I was spat onto the earth in a stream of guts, by Mother Nature, that green-eyed slut”, would conjure up so much attention from critics and fans dumbfounded with intrigue.  Say Anything’s music speaks in tongues of straightforward honesty and off-center commentary, in a way that pushes listeners to the point where they almost have to question Bemis’ sanity.  He has nurtured his ability to write about prototypical scenarios, while confronting them with a stream of words that are anything but streamline.  His wittily-written lines not only scream out Bemis’ quirky, peculiar mindset, but also of his ability to understand the industry and his fan base of music hungry listeners.
