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.
Wow! What a hell of a day for the electronic realm! STS9 releases the first single off their new album “Ad Explorata” and Pretty Lights releases his first new album in a while!
STS9 has played a bunch of shows this summer and has basically been a staple at every hot festival that has gone on. Having thrown it down at Wakarusa, Rothbury, Camp Bisco, and every other show that meant something this summer fans of the band certainly have come to expect a high level of sound quality and musical excitement. “Atlas” delivers more of the new, fresh STS9 that has been created over the last year. Though the song has been performed many times live already, the studio version provides a new take on the song that followers will enjoy.

And for all of you Minnesota musicheads looking for a good concert to attend make sure you don’t miss STS9’s musical madness this Thursday the 8th of October at First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. Tickets can be found Here
Set to be released in early October, Pretty Lights’ new album should be pretty great if it’s anything like the bangin’ preview track he just released off it. Most fans of Derek Vincent Smith will notice that “Sunday School” has been a staple in the live arsenal. Now that it’s going to be on an official album the general population will now be able to hear it blast throughout the community.
Have a Listen…
Pretty Lights – Sunday School
New album “Passing By Behind Your Eyes” launches on October 6th!
October’s third week is shaping up to be a big one in the electronic/jamtronica scene. Denver based Producer Derek Vincent Smith, also known as Pretty Lights, just announced he will be playing a show in Dinkytown. He will appear at the Varsity Theatre on Wednesday the 21st in between stops in Portland and Milwaukee.
Later on in the week Lotus will be playing at First Avenue in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. Though they are used to playing the Cabooze they may have booke First Avenue because its slightly larger. About to release two EP’s titled “Oil on Glass” and “Feather on Wood” they will surely play a good show.
