Yesterday when Family of the Year were in studio, Christina spotted a poster with Mother Mother on it.  She remarked, “I know those guys… they toured the US with our good friends Blondfire! (and Awolnation)”

Blondfire are a popular band in the US… we don’t play them on The Zone and I don’t think they get many spins in Canada.  I’d liken their style to Metric.  If you like Metric, well, there is more of that for you.

Rolling into the Radio Factory today, I got a message from the Lucky Basstarts out of Germany.  They have a remix of the Blondfire single “Where the Kids Are.”  With the weather turning sunny and warm in the Rain Forest Kingdom…this song fits with the patio sips of Vic Fest Beer!

“All roads leave Kansas.”  Hey Blondfire, I live on an Island….

Go with yourself.

I got an email today from Aric sending my attention to his new project Camera2.  He told me some story about visiting Victoria as a kid many moons ago (thank you for visiting).  The Brooklyn band features an assortment of veterans from other groups.  The bio reads:

Brooklyn foursome Camera2 is made up of producer-songwriter-vocalist – Andy Chase (Tahiti 80/Juliana Hatfield/Smashing Pumpkins), guitarist – Michael Jurin (Stellastarr*), bassist – Aric Gillis (Teenage Kick) and drummer – Mike Williams (Teddybears). The band came together in mid-2012 and soon after completed an album Andy wrote and produced in his home studio with co-production by Blondfire’s Bruce Driscoll. Camera2 is a decidedly new direction and a departure from the sounds of the previous projects for all the members who have now stepped into a harder hitting, darker, upbeat and more electronically driven indie-universe.

Resume checks out…. lets have a listen to the first feature song, “Just About Made It.”

Go with youself.

New York based Brother/sister group Blondfire have a Metric vibe if that’s your thing.

Then a remix!

They also do a delightful cover of Atlas Genius’ “Trojans” but I can’t find it online right now… and its time for a sandwich.

Go with yourself.
