It’s good to get an update on how these folks are doing. Since being introduced to Keys N Krates, they’ve now moved on to some harder rock. Check out the video for “Virgins”, from dance-punk duo Death From Above 1979 off their latest album The Physical World. The video was directed by Eva Michon, who also directed the “Life After Death From Above 1979”, the feature documentary that captures the band rise, fall out and epically reunite. Check out the doc when you get a chance, currently available at www.dfa1979-movie.com.
The Morning Benders recently performed a brand new track called “Virgins” for a session for La Blogotheque. This clip is also a teaser for a whole movie, that will be online beginning of October on Blogotheque and ArteLiveWeb.

I keep talking about doing it and now its finally in the works…. Until I post Indie Music Filter Volume 5, tie yourself over with another great compilation I ran across while checking the blogs. Here’s the Blue Walrus with The End Of An Adventure featuring Virgins, Sky Larkin, Van She. Great mix, well done!
I started my night at Nathan Phillips Square for a free Tokyo Police Club show, as part of something called WinterCity. One of the MC’s who were introducing the band made we laugh quite a bit after announcing “The Weakertons” were going to be performing the week after….
I had no idea they changed their name.
Then we headed over to the El Mocambo for Ra Ra Riot, The Coast and Virgins. Virgins were pretty solid, really reminded me of Joel Plaskett. The Coast were amazing (bias aside). The new record coming out April 1st will be no joke indeed. Really looking forward to hearing that one.
Ra Ra Riot went on at around midnight. Adorable string section, lots of energy, well crafted melodies. A great introduction to this Syracuse band for me. So, today, in fighting my scotch hangover, I’m treating my ears to Each Year (RAC remix) by Ra Ra Riot.
Check out another remix they’ve got on their myspace page, A Manner To Act (RAC remix).
