Kool Man

Guess which lyrical twins are back in studio mode working on their next album? Not the Cocteau Twins but it’s a good guess considering that guitarist Robin Gurthie produced their debut album White Music for Black People. Still don’t know? How about brothas Daniel and Danny Chavis of Apollo Heights who are currently working on their sophomore release Shocking fuzz of your Electric Fur. It was my pleasure to spend an evening with these wild rockers running around Williamsburg shining bright lights in their faces while catching up, catching drinks and getting right down to business.

A sneak peek into one of their new singles suggest that Shocking Fuzz might be an expression of melancholy but the kind that makes you satisfied wallowing in your own self-pity. Interested in checking it out? They have two big shows coming up at the Highline Ballroom and on May 2nd Irving Plaza with Echo and the Bunnymen. No info yet on an expected release date but Apollo are definitely back and black.

What an amazing performance at The Highline Ballroom Thursday night! I wish there were a way to incorporate at least one more star in their name, because Stellastarr* deserves it. Shawn Christensen stole the show,  took back his stage, and put the “Rock” back in Rock Star! If you are one of the people  downloading Civilized for “free” you better get your ass’s to the show and help  support their tour. Nothing is  free, and it was the I pod that killed the radio starr*

Stellastarr* is on the road again in support of their third full length album CIVILILZED.  I had the opportunity to hang with the Stars during a very special recording session at Sirus radio where exclusive versions of  Graffiti EyesUnderneath the Knife, and Warchild were recorded live on air! If you missed their interview/guest DJ spot last week, not to worry they will be airing these exclusive tracks again July 22nd through the 25th through out the day for your audio pleasure!

New York, give these guys a warm welcome back and show your support at The Highline Ballroom on July 16th!
