A Message For You…

It ain’t Friday…but I figured there is no time like the present for a flashback.  From their 2008 appearance in Tokyo, Sting, Andy and Stuart rock it old school with one the all-time iconic tunes.  Such a cool version…

Summer Ending Soul

artist: Attack Ships on Fire | album: Vegas Soul | genre: rock, punk | label: SquidHat Records

Attack Ships On Fire :: Vegas Soul

Attack Ships On Fire - Vegas SoulLabour Day is fast approaching likewise, coincidentally, the end of Summer 2012.  If they haven’t already done so, young chitlins, angst ridden teens and future college drop outs all around the world will soon be starting their Fall classes and, thus, ending life as they know it. Fortunately for these wayward yutes there is a new album dropping from Oregon’s Attack Ships on Fire that should help in tiding them over until…well…with their limited attention spans Thanksgiving might be a stretch but I think Halloween is in the bag for sure.  The (12) tracks that encompass the Pride of Portland’s third album entitled Vegas Soul were actually inspired by a new book from author P Moss called Vegas Knockout that is due to drop on Sept. 6th as is album #3 from the aforementioned ASoF.

We got a sneak peek…err listen…to the album’s title track and it’s delovely.  Driven doesn’t even begin to describe it.  This one, my friends, comes at you fast and furious with a musical double tap that is true pandalerium.  I freaking love it…sounds a bit like Coheed and Cambria meets the Sex Pistols but that’s what I dig about it.

Many thanks to our friends at SquidHat Records for sharing the love.  Peace…

Good News for Goodbyemotel

2011 was indeed a good year for Australia’s up and coming indie rockers Goodbyemotel Not only were they nominated as finalists in this year’s Music Oz Awards…but so was their video (above) for the title track of their 2011 EP [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/wish-your-way/id456122590?i=456122600&uo=4″ title=”Wish Your Way” text=”Wish Your Way”].  Naturally, this comes as no surprise to your friends here at Froglix as we predicted back in October that big things were expected from these cats and, true to form, it is all coming to fruition.  Cheers mates!  Job well done…

Smooth Like Butter

The Golden Butter BandA good friend of mine from Sharpsburg, MD (which is not at the end of the world but you can, in fact, see it from there) turned me on to these cats recently and all I can say is…wow.  The Golden Butter Band’s ability to flow effortlessly between rock and reggae is truly jamalicious.  As it turns out they are playing this Friday, March 16th at Sweet Caroline’s in ye olde Winchester,VA…and I shall be there.
