CODY KAHMAR Premieres New Song “Last Time”

Singer-songwriter, Cody Kahmar, has just released his third single “Last Time,” an upbeat must-hear dance-trigger for the masses, today on Global Grind. The beat is funk, pop, dance and disco all rolled into one up-tempo track, a variance from Cody’s previous more sensual single, “Sex in the City.” From the moment “Last Time” starts to play, the music propels feel-good vibes that say ‘timeless party anthem.’  You can check out the track on Global Grind, here: http://bit.ly/172JtPK.

 

Last Time” was co-penned by Cody Kahmar and neo-songwriter Dominique Maples, to encourage life’s epic moments that will last for years to come. Everyone has extraordinary last times that can be stimulated by music and this song will help people connect with them; like the last time you will ever dance with someone special, the last time you will kiss your lover, or the last time you will party before tying the knot.

 

“Last Time” was produced by producer Pro Jay (Usher, Lil Wayne, Robin Thicke, Tupac, Jennifer Hudson) and offers the same character and perseverance Prince’s “1999” brought to the dance floor; An adamant plea to cast any cares aside, feel the music and the moment, and go hard!

 

The first chorus of the song kicks off with “We all came to party tonight…,” a statement that sets the tone for the carefree atmosphere “Last Time” was written to create. The significance of the song’s lighthearted persona also reflects Cody’s high-spirited outlook on life. “Life is short and music is a catalyst to inspire people to live life to the fullest. I want ‘Last time’ to inspire people to celebrate life experiences like second chances don’t exist; like it’s their last time.”

Mixhell To Release Debut Album Spaces LP Out June 11th

“The ‘Spaces’ album and accompanying live shows are sure to elevate Mixhell into the premiere league of electronic acts.” – DJ Mag

mixhelltrio1.181049

 

Mixhell, an electronic collaboration between former Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera and DJ wife Laima Leyton, are releasing their highly anticipated debut albumJune 11th on Last Gang Records (Crystal Castles, Boys Noize, MSTRKRFT) in liaison with Boysnoize Records.

Their first single, Exit Wound, featuring vocals from Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato, was released to rave reviews, being coined as a subtle but sexy track perfected by the live percussion performed by Cavalera, resulting in a tightly coiled, urgent masterpiece. DJ Mag called the track a rock and rave delight with sleazy vocals, squirrelling electronics and power-funk drums. The music video for the single premiered on Noisey, and was directed by Brazilian phenom Thiago Zanato.

The album, mixed by Gui Boratto, blends old and new, taking the best elements of both dance, electronica and rock to create a fresh and exciting sound that’s entirely Mixhell’s.  Their live performances combine live percussion and dance fusion to create an incredibly engaging, wild and exciting show. In addition, they’ve enlisted the help of constant studio collaborator Max Blum, who will add bass guitar to their already unique and intricate sets. With a few dates lined up this summer, including the legendary Glastonbury Music Festival, and a full fledged tour in the works, it doesn’t look like Mixhell shows any signs of slowing down.

Last Gang Entertainment is a recording, management and publishing company founded in 2003 with offices in Los Angeles, London and Toronto.  In addition to launching Metric, Death From Above 1979, MSTRKRFT and Crystal Castles, the label has combined successfully with LIGHTS, Chromeo, The New Pornographers, K-OS, Boys Noize and Tiga on varied licensing deals.  The distributed division (Last Gang Labels) has partnered with a variety of artist and label clients, including Nightbox, Trouble Andrew and boutique electronic label Turbo Recordings.

CSS Announce Upcoming US Tour Dates + Release “Hangover” Video

CSS_PR1_MarianaJuliano.1

 

 

While nothing can compare to the fondness one has to their hometown, the temptation to live in sunny and glamorous Los Angeles is hard to resist. Some of LA’s newest residents include the ladies of CSS; natives of Brazil, they have temporarily set up residence to record their new album Planta and to prepare for their upcoming US summer tour, hitting many East and West coast cities in June and July.

But before they hit the road CSS has released their new office space dance party of a video for “Hangover”, choreographed by Toni Basil of “Oh Mickey” fame and also directed by Basil and Matt Dilmore. You can watch and share the video HERE.

Songs like “Hangover” stand emblematic of the enigmatic style they collectively harnessed. Co-written with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, it straddles the lines between pop, dance, and punk, while never losing its edge or cheeky sense of humor with lines equating hangovers and heartbreaks.

“It’s about being young and having fun,” Ana admits. “We hooked up with Tim, and we talked about how much we love reggae and reggaeton. It doesn’t necessarily sound like that, but we came up with something that anybody can move to.”

That energy courses through Planta from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener “Honey” to the tambourine dream of “Faith in Love.” In many ways, the album’s boundlessness has been CSS’s goal since the beginning. Other stand-outs included “Dynamite” featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip.

CSS fans will get their chance to see “Hangover”, “Honey” and the band’s many more danceable tracks this summer on their June and July US tour. See the full list of dates below.

Savoir Adore Stream Our Nature LP/Pittsburgh 10/23

Click Here To Listen To ‘Our Nature’ On My Old Kentucky Blog

On “Dreamers,” the dance-laden lullaby and lead single from Savoir Adore’s new album Our Nature, Paul Hammer and Deidre Muro invite listeners into a magical dream world. Such worlds are nothing new to the fantasy pop duo, who inadvertently became a fixture of Brooklyn’s indie scene as the result of a dare. In 2007, as disheartened solo artists, they whimsically retreated out of the city to a rural studio with two rules: “48 hours. No acoustic guitars.” They returned with The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and The Girl with Animals in Her Throat (Cantora), a concept-driven EP set in a fairy tale land that narrates the tragedy of Gloria and her unrequited love. On 2009’s full length In The Wooded Forest (Cantora), they expounded on the EP’s mythical landscape. But where Savoir Adore’s previous releases have surveyed these worlds at a distance, Our Nature zooms in, putting our inner landscapes and relationships at the core of every track. In that vein, the recordings themselves are intentionally more crisp, aurally expansive and intriguing.

After recording the 2007 EP, Muro and Hammer hastily forged the grammatically faulty French moniker Savoir Adore for a MySpace page in order to share their experiments with friends. There was no turning back. The tracks caught on and made their way to Cantora Records, which released the EP as the duo began to work on a full length record. With the release of 2009’s In The Wooded Forest, the New York music press embraced Savoir Adore and set them on a path to expand their audience nationally and internationally. NME hailed Savoir Adore’s sound “musically and lyrically brave,” and Nylon praised it as “irresistibly melodic indie pop.” In 2009 and 2010, The L Magazine and The New York Post both named the band to their top bands to watch lists. Adding band members Tim McCoy (drums), Gary Atturio (bass) and Alex Foote (guitar), who took part in Our Nature’s recording process, the band shared the stage with MGMT, Los Campesinos, Oh Land, and Toro Y Moi.

In the summer of 2010, the band toured the UK and France, including shows at Koko/Club NME and The Secret Garden Party. Their songs have been featured in various commercials (Almay, Citi, Yoplait), TV shows (Pretty Little Liars, Drop Dead Diva, Huge) and video games (Kinect Adventurer). During the 2012 Academy Awards, Tide premiered its new Tide Pods campaign featuring Savoir Adore’s cover of Men Without Hats’ “Pop Goes the World” (available on iTunes).

In late 2011, Savoir Adore offered a sneak peak of Our Nature, releasing “Dreamers” as a 7” on Neon Gold Records. With the release of the full album in 2012, Savoir Adore will hit the road to promote Our Nature and invite listeners, if only for night, into their magical realm.

Goldhouse To Play Pittsburgh on August 10th!

The electro-pop outfit GOLDHOUSE has just announced he will play Smiling Moose in Pittsburgh, PA on Friday, August 10th. GOLDHOUSE has just released his new EP, “All Night Long” that fans can purchase on iTunes and watch the lyric video for the new single, “F-C-K” here. The latest musical brainchild of singer/writer/producer Grant Harris, GOLDHOUSE’s sound is reminiscent of today’s pop acts 3OH!3, Dev and LMFAO, with an infectious and passionate sound that leaves you no choice but to dance.

The first single off the new EP, “The Moment” has been receiving extensive radio attention, receiving 30 spins per week on Sirius Radio’s “20 on 20.” GOLDHOUSE will release a full music video for the second single, “F-C-K,” set for Fall 2012 release.

While writing and producing his own original tracks is his true passion, GOLDHOUSE also experiments with remixing, most recently teaming up with The Cab, remixing their hit song “La La.” To Harris, remixing is more than merely creating a club mix. “I really want to take songs and think about them in a whole different realm” explains Harris. “Its not about wobbles and blips, its about complementing the song and giving the listener a different experience as they take the remix in.”

GOLDHOUSE matches his high-quality recordings with an equally impressive live show – complete with explosive lights, a full backing band and an energy that turns each show into a non-stop dance party. For his debut performance as GOLDHOUSE, Harris sold out Chicago’s BeatKitchen in record time.
