Who: Paul and the Patients from Brooklyn.
What: Since we last wrote about this band in April, Blogspot has had some serious staying power in my musical playlists. Now, I get the option of the original, and the new Nick Seeley remix which seems to have lightened the the darker original, making a super danceable summer banger. Theyre still doing local shows in NY, hopefully further outside their hometown soon. Check out their EP (To The Lions), most of which seems to be up on their myspace.
Song: Blogspot (Nick Seeley remix).
Way too many things going on here, but here’s what peaked my interest.
Amy Millan (of Stars and BSS) is putting out a new record, her second solo effort, called ‘Masters Of The Burial’ available Sept. 9th at A&C. Try out the song Bruised Ghosts on the Arts 7 Crafts Sampler Volume 6 here. And speaking of BSS, head to the newly launched Canadian Spinner (Spinner.ca) to read my buddy Jon’s article on the state of the Canadian indie music industry.
