Freezepop at Cafe 939 - 3/27 - Special PAX East show!


Freezepop will be performing a rare all ages show at Café 939 on Boylston Street in Boston this Saturday at 4:00. Even if you don’t immediately recognize the name, if you’ve been around any media in the last decade, chances are you’ve heard Freezepop. This Boston based electro-pop group has featured their music in television series (MTV’s The Hills and PBS’s Arthur, to name a few) and have contributed music to video games such as Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution. The band has slowly been making their mark in the US and Europe through songs like “Frontload,” and “Less Talk More Rokk,” which took the #4 spot in iTunes top dance/electronica songs of 2007. Freezepop made their musical mark by blending pop song structures with electronica to create a sublimely dance-able sound that resonates with hipsters and rock aficionados as much as it does with dance crowd. Vintage DJ/VJ gear, phenomenal stage presence and Freezepop’s infectious electro-pop songs ensure this show is not to be missed.

NYC Artists on the Rise: Slow Six release CD + play Glasslands 03.27

Slow Six, a rotating cast of talented local musicians constantly pursuing solo and side projects (Nice Daughter, Redhooker and Wires Under Tension) has finally released a full-length follow-up to 2007’s “Nor’easter.” “Tomorrow Becomes You” is well worth the wait and is shaping up to be one of this year’s best releases. The group’s signature string-laden electroacoustic experimental rock sound maintains a captivating balance between electronic and organic elements. Although the number of musicians and instruments has been reduced since “Nor’easter,” the songs remain just as lush and detailed as before with the brilliantly constructed layers.  Listeners will fall in rapt attention initiated by the gradual, natural builds to escalating, harmonious interactions between instruments. These dialogues occur in a pliable, oscillating language that varies in intonation with each precise conscious aural decision. The quintet works so well together that the music on “Tomorrow Becomes You” moves as an animated, fluid being taking on new forms with every listen.
The record release show will be held at Glasslands with label mate and current Deli cover star Glass Ghost and the complementary Lymbyc Systym, who is also celebrating the release of “Shutter Release,” on Saturday, March 27. Tickets are $10. Don't miss this killer line-up! - Nancy Chow
