    Band to Watch: Hooray for Earth

    The first thing I ever heard from Hooray For Earth was a remix of Coma Cinema‘s ‘Her Sinking Sun.’ I’m pretty big on remixes so I asked google where I could find some more…. in addition to some tunes, google gave me some 411 – Hooray For Earth formed in Boston in 2006 and currently hail from the big apple. Their latest LP, True Loves, just dropped on Tuesday and If you are in NYC you can check them out at Webster Hall on June 16th with Architecture in Helsinki!!! Remember those guys?!?!?

    Band To Watch: Mini Mansions

    If pure sound had the capability to project images on a blank wall, Mini Mansions would be worthy projectionists.
