Here’s a quick run down of all the good things going on with the artists I work with:

Rooftops – Not only is their new album selling very well, a new teaser video is available for your viewing pleasure.

They will be featured on the New Album Spotlight page in the January edition of Electronic Musician so look for that when it comes out. You can also now request tracks from their new album “A Forest Of Polarity” on Pacific Northwest Radio Stations KUGS Bellingham and KEXP / 107.7 The End KNDD / Hollow Earth Radio / KCPR Seattle. You can stream songs from the album on the Rooftops Myspace Page, Last.fm or Lala and download the album on Itunes, Amazon or buy a copy from the Clickpop Records Store.

Pan Pan – Coming off her performance opening for The Books, Sarah and company have officially released the album “New Arms” digitally on Emusic, Itunes and Amazon (Follow The Links To Download The Album) And continues to get praise from local publications. Look for a studio full length sometime in 2010 as well as their apperiance in the 2010 EMP Sound Off! in Seattle on Feb. 20th! Check out the Pan Pan Myspace and don’t forget to become a fan on Facebook!

The Mission Orange – The duo gained some nice praise from Don Project of SunBreak for their show at The Rogue Hero last month, saying that that while “Sporting a huge sound for a duo” they “wove wonderful melodies around powerful rhythms.” And although younger  “they bring a swagger and a complexity to the stage that rivals their legally adult compatriots.” This show also got them the December Rock And Roll Moment of The Month in What’s Up! Magazine. They are working on finishing their new full length album that will probably see the light of day in Early Spring 2010. Check out the Mission Orange Myspace and become a fan on Facebook.

MGMT is a Brooklyn, New York based musical group. “Time To Pretend” off of there second album, Oracular Spectacular reached #23 on the US Modern Rock chart.

Lyrically this song is a sum up of my life over the past 24 to 48 hours. The video is also pretty fly. Below are the full lyrics:

I’m feeling rough, I’m feeling raw, I’m in the prime of my life.
Let’s make some music, make some money, find some models for wives.
I’ll move to Paris, shoot some heroin, and f**k with the stars.
You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars.

This is our decision, to live fast and die young.
We’ve got the vision, now let’s have some fun.
Yeah, it’s overwhelming, but what else can we do.
Get jobs in offices, and wake up for the morning commute.

Forget about our mothers and our friends
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend

I’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms
I’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world
I’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I’ll miss the boredem and the freedom and the time spent alone.

But there’s really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew.
The models will have children, we’ll get a divorce
We’ll find some more models, everyting must run it’s course.

We’ll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
We were fated to pretend
To pretend
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

“Handlebars” by Flobots which was released back in May. If the lyrical content wasn’t good enough the video is visually great, done by Dirty UK and Phil Tidy. It’s a good commentary on our current situation not only as a world and a country by on a personal and individual level. This is really the only good song of theirs that I have heard though. The Message Still Stands.
