What a day in the Jamtronica/Electronic scene! New music from STS9 and a whole new album from Pretty Lights! “Passing By Behind Your Eyes” was just released this morning and has been overloading the Pretty Lights website all day! I was finally able to download a copy and I must say that it is a quality record that will certainly be played for a while to come! Coming up in the last few years making music in the Denver Area, Pretty Lights creates a new genre that I can only describe as Electro/Hip-Hop/Crunk. However you want to describe the music is your choice, but a lot of different types of people will be able to appreciate these tracks as they have well-placed samples from artists such as The Notorious BIG, Pink Floyd, Diana Ross, some sort of jazz, Eminem, and what I think could be Dido.
Believe me, the shit pounds. Go see him at the Varsity Theatre in Minneapolis on October 21!
You can download a 192 kbps version of “Passing By Behind Your Eyes” Here. A 320 kbps version is offered in the ITunes music store for $9.99.
