We Have Band: Debut Album, WHB, Out Today

We have ears. We have hearts. We also have feet that love to move nonstop whenever we hear a lovely tune or two from forever a Beaston-fave, in We Have Band. With the trio's debut album, WHB, out today we all have reason to get down with the goings on from this talented troupe of musicians.




After going back through my archives, it's evident that We Have Band are long overdue for a massively mega rad post. While yes, we first swooned for the track Oh! some 2+ years ago, we've dotted along with the band's career and tossed out a goodie every now and again. But since it's their official debut album release day, I figure that the only fitting thing to do is dump a ton of treats on you. 


And don't worry, it's all legit, sprinkled with some exclusive mixes, personal faves, and a video from WHB themselves, thanking bloggers for their support. 


All I can say is you're welcome. Oh (Oh! puns), and go buy WHB now.

Introducing: Bright Light Bright Light

Not to be confused with Lite Brite, Rainbow Brite, light sabers, or any sort of toy with the words bright or light in them, London's Bright Light Bright Light (yep it's so nice, you say it twice) jumped into Beastonia directly before flying out for SXSW. In turn, we lost track a bit, but the cool chap hit us up again today with a fair reminder that I needed to get the radness ready for your ears.


Bright Light Bright Light is a project mixing a love of the dancefloor with a love of classic songwriting. Focused around the songs of Welsh singer, writer, producer Rod Thomas, it's a collection of shimmering pop songs. His debut album, Make Me Believe In Hope, has been recorded with the help of Boom Bip (Neon Neon), Andy Chatterley and Friendly.


The track, A New Word to Say, comes from the release and was produced by Boom Bip. It's a glassy slice of discotuned treats that gets better around every 8-count. Between Thomas' crisp vocals and a tight production set, I've got a few new words to say about this cut...put, it, on, and repeat. How's that work for ya?


Bonus tracks below: James Yuill's remix of A New Word to Say and BLBL's remix of Ellie Goulding's Under the Sheets. Everybody wins today!
