Cold Beat

Cold Beat is Hannah Lew's, of Grass Widow fame, new band. You can definitely hear the sonic connection between Grass Widow and Cold Beat, but where Grass Widow is all lofi hiss - Cold Beat is a little cleaner and throws in some dub on the drums. That isn't to say you would call this hi-fi, but it just slightly more polished than her main band. "Worms" is taken from the first EP from Cold Beat, out 11/5 on Crime On The Moon.

"True Believer" is the first song released from the up coming EP by Widowspeak. The song features a hazy, drifting, meandering sound similar to Real Estate or Beach House, but with a substantial country/folk twang. Makes for very nice wake up and ease into the day music. The Swamps EP is due out on Captured Tracks on October 29.

Morgan Page @ Dive Dayclub

On Saturday, 9/14, Morgan Page played Dive Dayclub at Harrah's Casino in San Diego county. It was a Vegas pool party in San Diego - the people were beautiful, the sun was out, and the music was booming. Morgan Page spun a set of big room house that was perfectly suited for the sunny day. Big pop hits were remixed to feature house beat along with current club fare and the numerous hits produced by Page. The crowd was very into it, even though the relatively early time in the day and high temperatures meant that some were going to relax in the pool rather than full on dance. Page is an excellent DJ and is highly recommend to see when he comes to your town.
