The perfect recipe for a great long weekend? Rollercoasters and Rock & Roll!
Our fine friends in Talking to Walls are offering an awesome prize pack leading up to their weekend show this Saturday, July 3rd at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. The band will be giving away a copy of their new album ‘We Were Not So Tall’, as well as 2 Six Flags Park Passes!
To encapsulate a sound that is combination of â€œanthemicâ€, â€œetherealâ€, and â€œdanceyâ€, I would have to go with the words â€œDelphicâ€ or maybe â€œAcolyteâ€. Both have mysterious meanings with futuristic phonetics but with rooted definitions in ancient Greek and together it translates into pure new wave electro wizardry. Today, UKâ€™s Delphic releases their album Acolyte on Dangerbird records. Run to your local record store or internet and snatch it up.

Today marks the release of Ed Vallance's new EP, The Summer Fire! The EP was produced by Mark Ephrain who has worked with the likes of the New Pornographers and Joan as Policewoman. â€œIâ€™ve worked with a lot of producers,” said Vallance, “but there was an immediate musical chemistry with him and we hit it off from the word go. We went up to Montauk one weekend in August and just got completely engrossed in the demos. Mark instinctively knew what I was going for. It felt like the hand of fate or something.” The EP was recorded in Brooklyn where the former Londoner now resides.
Get your buns ready! The mustard-stained McSAPRR is set to bring his zappa-esque, jazz-inspired rock to tastebuds everywhere!
