Murder By Death Kickstarter

So this isn't an LA band and they have a pretty good following but not enough people know and love their music yet in my opinion and thusly you get this blogpost. Murder By Death have a kickstarter going on that already hit their goal but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get involved in any of the awesome stuff that they got going on for pledgers. I picked up the special edition LP and would have gone for more if I had the money to spare. They already released the first song(single?) for their new album and it is a catchy little tune. MBD has such a confidence in their sound which can jokily and sometimes aptly described as whiskey devil music that I instantly love everything I hear from them. This will be their 6th studio album and should not disappoint in the slightest. So I will embed the track, "I Came Around" below for your listening pleasure.

Also watch the video they made to promote their Kickstarter as it is hilarious and might just save your life...

The Sanglorians

So The Sanglorians have a indiegogo project to fund their first album. I remember when I blogged about their show I was at a while ago really digging some of their songs and wanting to hear more of them. Well hopefully soon that will come into fruition with this crowd source DIY effort to record their first album. I have already given to the cause and thusly I wanted to shine another spotlight on their efforts as they got a week left at the moment and every little bit helps so support local music like a boss and donate to their cause to help make great music. They have a music video for you to check out that I will embed below...

Amanda Fucking Palmer

Time for a post to venture outside of the local music scene and talk about a much more well known artist but definitely not mainstream artist. I have been a fan of Amanda Palmer's music since a friend showed me The Dresden Dolls "Coin Operated Boy" and I fell in love with their completely unique at the time punk-cabaret theatrical musical style. Though my following of Amanda Palmer's music whether with her band or solo career has wained as nothing really lived up to the awesomeness of The Dresden Dolls self titled debut album. I didn't even know Amanda Palmer had already put out a second solo record and this wildy successful kickstarter I am part of is for her third solo release.

Though what Amanda Palmer has put out in the world so far for her release this fall for Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra's album "Theater is Evil" has me more excited than ever before for a new release of her music. There is a grand scale to some songs and a bit of an 80's new wave feel to her first single, "Do It with a Rockstar" while having the most punk rock aggression I have heard from her in a while.

Amanda Palmer also just released a music video for the song "Want it Back" is just fucking fun and catchy as fuck song with an extremely cool stop-motiony music video that is NSFW as Amanda Palmer has never been one to shy away from nudity and her own nudity at that. So watch the embed of the video below and enjoy...
