Beastly Listening: Beni's Debut, House of Beni

Houseofbeni

 

Modular's latest in all things house and haute, Beni bursts forth with a sneak peak preview of his debut album, due out October 11 here in the States. Having already heard the tracks It's a Bubble and Someone Just Like You, House of Beni rounds out with 8 more rad records to add to your repertoire. We'd suggest specific ones for you to listen and love up on, but we barely make it past opening cut, Sway (featuring vocals from Nomi Ruiz of Jessica 6), before we're already hitting repeat.

Azari & III to Release Debut Album on July 29

Bringing with them every feeling of vice and ecstasy, Azari & III's debut album is set to become the sound of a dystopian summer with their innately brooding beat and sordid-pop edge. Sounding like a combination of New York '79, Chicago in '86 and the world in the future, this Canadian quartet behold one of the most exciting new directions in dance music with their sizzling update of classic house and electro pop that is unbeatable in the discotheque and unstoppable in your dreams. (via: ctrl+c and ctrl+v directly from the press release, but I couldn't have said it any better, so I didn't!)

Bag Raiders Announce US Debut Album Release Date

Oh, you know...it's only been 3+ years since first hearing Bag Raiders' infinitely infectious single, Shooting Stars, and it still holds a lot of weight on my "damn I just wanna hear some good tunes" type of playlists. With their debut album finally seeing a proper release in their Aussie homeland earlier this year, it's time to get it up and get it in Stateside. Yeah yeah, it's leaked and been spreading around already, but if I can just comment that this is one disc you should legit support and buy, then let it be known...do it right.

Bag Raiders' self-titled debut will be released via Modular on January 25, 2011

ceo, jj and Friends Hit Up Cameo This Saturday, September 4

I should have probably just typed this all in lowercase, eh? Bollocks...let's capitalize (ha!) on the fact that Modular is tossing together a pretty sweet showcase of lower lettered musicians this Saturday night, and with every good reason, you should be in attendance.

All the info you need to know is on that flyer above. Doors are at 11pm, so if you're headed to Electric Zoo this weekend, like I, then join me on the long ride down into Williamsburg for a night of super stellar Swedish music from ceo and jj.

 

S'gonna be a great one!

Recap: Cut Copy Headlined the August 8 Modular-Curated Pool Party

For this past weekend's installment of the summer Pool Party series at the Williamsburg Waterfront, Jelly teamed up with their Modular label pals for an Aussie-curated Sunday fun day. With Cut Copy headlining, and support coming via Restless People, Glasser, Memory Tapes and PUNCHES, there was no denying how massive the turn out would be. Lines formed early, kids waited patiently, and it all paid off with an afternoon jam-packed with good music, great friends, and the shaded solace of the All Saints Pub.

Next week's event brings together !!!, Lee Fields, The Strange Boys and Future Islands. After that, the 22nd of the month couples the Fool's Gold dream team of Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned, before rounding out our favorite summer Sunday activity on August 29 with Delorean, Dominique Young Unique and some as yet to be announced "super special guests". 

 

Here's to hoping those two pair up for a duet...am I right? Spanish dance-rock and a Tampa spitter with a flair for the dirty vernacular...match made in heaven, ha!

 

Check out the full gallery of pictures from this weekend's event here.

EVR's Belly of the Beast: PUNCHES, Glasser and Modular All Drop by the Booth This Week

Big tings poppin' in the East Village Radio booth tomorrow, on our weekly show, Belly of the Beast. Being that this Sunday is the Modular-curated Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront, there's no better way to express our excitement for the affair, than by having a bona fide celebration of our own this Thursday, August 5, from 8-10pm.

 

Punches_evr
 

The lineup for this Sunday's Jelly NYC soirée includes Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People, with local trio, PUNCHES, providing the between-set spins. Greg, Darin and Alan will be in the booth to talk shop and maybe we  can convince them to do a live song for us. Gotta tune in to find out.

 

Glasser will also pop in for a quick chat, along with resident expert, Shelley, from the Modular family. I'll be spinning songs from all participating acts during the segment as well.

 

'Tis gon' be a beast of a show, so you know the drill: Thursday, August 5 from 8-10pm...Belly of the Beast on East Village Radio. Tuners-ins are my favorite.
