It List : Monday
Jessica 6 | FUR | Museum Creatures | Yeahdef (Hailey's)
Jessica 6 members Andrew Raboso and Morgan Wiley have collaborated with the DFA collective and most notably did production work with Hercules & Love Affair. Though they mainly helped out with the tour, they did contribute to the remix album that was released last year which was pretty solid. Understandably Jessica 6 sounds very similar to Hercules. The revved up dance pop sounds soulful and danceable enough but lacks the accessibility of their work with Hercules. This sounds like dance music for people who really care about dance music, not us quick time Charlies looking for ditties to hum in the car on the way home from work. It still sounds very similar to H&LA which I believe to be one of the best dance albums released in the last decade so who knows what will happen.
Pocahaunted | Wet Hair | Eyes,Wings and many Other Things (The Lounge)
If you missed out on the second day of FestxFest Fest here is an opportunity to check out Pocahaunted at a not as cool venue.
An Horse | Big Science|On After Dark (Rubber Gloves)
An Horse were "discovered" by Tegan and Sara and recently toured with Silversun Pickups. I'll leave it at that. But if this type of stuff does tickle your fancy and you haven't seen On After Dark I bet you will have a new favorite local band.
