In 1974 an amazing collaboration occured between two musical giants to produce an album that very few know about. “War Babies” a prog pop masterpiece that serves as a precursor of what amazing music these musical mavens would create. Todd Rundgren’s Utopia played all the music on the album providing a sound remiscent of the prog greats of the time such as Yes, Genesis & King Crimson. I liken this album to what Minus the Bear does in the 21st century. Prog Pop at its best.
Hall & Oates – Beanie G. and The Rose Tattoo

Justin Timberlake totally rips off Andy Gibb, the youngest Bee Gee’s brother who was too good to be in the group and had to go solo. He was a total baller rock star and died of a drug overdose, too bad.
Andy Gibb – (Our love) Don’t Throw it All Away

Check out my boy Zack’s band Radiation Year and their new song from their upcoming cd, “Age of the Everglades”. They are a fresh sounding hardcore band that evokes the energy of Rage Against the Machine and just makes you want to kick someone in the face.
Radiotion Year – Sex On the Beach

Here is some German electro goodness from our boy, Boys Noize. Cranking out the distorted, tight, synth sounds that no one can resist. Check out the rest of his album Oi Oi Oi which comes out this week.

Led Zeppelin didn’t write tunes everybody liked. They left that to the Bee Gees.

Sceanrio Rock – Both Gotta Move On (SebastiAn Remix)

SebastiAn and Para One are 2 of the new french touch artists that will be making some great tracks in the future and will definitely be making a name for themselves. Para One can be the next Aphex Twin but hipper. Para One has just finished scoring NAISSANCE DES PIEUVRES which showcases a more intellectual and introspective side to his music.

NAISSANCE DES PIEUVRES

On the other side of the world, down under the Midnight Juggernauts are creating a new sound of shoegaze cinematic disco funk, just think if Alan Braxe & Kevin Shields decided to start an epic synth rock band in the 70s. Midnight Juggerenauts are a Justice fav and are opening up for them on their upcoming US tour. I’ll be at their show on Oct 20 in NYC.

Giorgio Moroder would love David Rubato, a Frenchmen classical trained in jazz piano who decided to start making dance music. This track “Circuit” is a live recording which is very unorthodox for a dance track these days. Notice the great slap bass. Funky. David Rubato is treating and manipulating all the sounds in real time. David Rubato is releasing a 12″ Single of “Circuit” that includes sheet music so that you can all play along and cover this tune. Check out his myspace where he posted some new tracks.
