Here's my recommendations for the week (I don't normally listen to this much electronic-sounding stuff all the time, but this week...):

SOUND Team: My friend Jax recommended them to me a few days ago. Arcade Fire-esque sound, out of Austin. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing so far and am looking forward to new material.

The Presets: Electronic dance band from Australia, in the vein of The Faint, The Rapture, Moving Units, etc. Listen to "Are You The One" and "Steamworks", and then dance your ass off. Watch out for them to blow up soon, a la Pitchfork and HSB style.

This song has been stuck in my head all week:

Benny Benassi - Satisfaction. Listen to the song here and watch part of the video here. I'll have to say, the video is probably not safe for school or for work. Some of the best music you could have for a dance party in your living room, or in a club.

____________

Joe from The Sass

The Hanks - Incredible band, friends of ours from LA. Make sure to go to their myspace to see them on their current tour.

Fair To Midland -The Sweetest live band on the planet.

Zox - Amazing band from LA. Make sure to go see them opening for Gogol Bordello.

Darci Cash - Great band from LA.

This is My Suitcase - Awesome band from Columbus, that just so happens to include the great Nick Manos.

and also my band The Sass, were finishing up our tour right now and
are going to be headed to the south and east coast in the spring.
Please come and watch us if you live in Houston at Fitzgeralds on
Saturday March 11th with the Hanks. Also go to our myspace
www.myspace.com/thesassmusic and be our friends.

the hanks capitalized on my inebriation and love for their one song on the purevolume/dtr comp at warped tour and soaked me 10 bucks for the cd.

Ha, saw Zox play with a bunch of uber-shitty college rock bands in Sep. `03. They were comparatively quite good; they just do next to nothing for me on disc.
