NEW TUNES: I Saw Live Dopapod Evil Was I

Thumping up from basement parties in Boston, to bumping the sounds systems of major venues all across the east coast, Dopapod has been steadily growing as a musical tour-de-force for 3 years. Dopapod’s debut album, “Radar” has received critical acclaim from national publications such as Performer Magazine, calling Dopapod’s members “incredibly talented musicians”, and that the band has “set the bar respectfully high for their first full length recording”. Dopapod has shared the stage with many great bands and musicians such as Sam Kininger (Soulive, Lettuce), Lotus, Brothers Past, Biodeisel (Johnny Rabb) Dave Grippo (Phish, Trey Anastasio) Timo Shanko (G-Love n Special Sauce) Dana Colley (Morphine) Mr. Rourke (Club D'elf) and more. The summer of 2010 has had several festival appearances including Camp Bisco 9, Strange Creek, Liberate, The Big Up, Muddy River Jam Fest, Tweed River Music Festival, Mountain Jam, Weekend Off, and Headyfest. Dopapod has big plans for 2010, including a new album, and more east coast tours in the works. They are also in the process of moving to Brooklyn! As of now, Dopapod is preparing lots of new music in ‘The Fort’, somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Recorded live during the first half of 2011.

Don’t miss Dopapod @ Stella Blues on 9/22!

NEW TUNES - Signal Path "Minds Make Lights"

Born in the unlikely mountain enclave of Missoula, MT, Signal Path bends musical genres and deep melodic ideas around a core of unrelenting rhythm and massive low-end. They create a depth and intricacy of sound that become more commanding every time it’s heard, and by blending live instrumentation into their production they create a live experience that is as beautiful as it is intense.

Maybe they’ll be hitting up CT some time this fall. We’ll just have to wait and see. 


NEW TUNES - FLOTE "Summer Glow"

CT’s own, FLOTE, drops his second full length album and does the Altered Ego Collective artist deliver! FLOTE’s brand of chrome flavored beats are laced with glitched out samples while also delivering the organic feel of dilla-esque hip hop beats. I suggest you get on this before the FREE DL’s run out.
