Kids These Days – Bud Biliken

The eight member cross genre group known as Kids These Days has been blasting all over the internet in the last year or so with various single releases. Most recently the talented Chicago based group dropped the track “Bud Biliken” from their forthcoming Traphouse Rock EP. For this pot inspired tune KTD sticks to the formula on this single, fusing hip hop over jazz, all mixed up with a blues type trio. KTD also heads out on a two month swing with Asher Roth and Chuck Inglish starting Nov. 1st in San Diego. Anyone else dig that Radiohead drop in the breakdown? By Brian Litwin

Here’s something fresh for your radars by way of new LA based duo MOTION CNTRL. The pair’s sound is dance floor ready, offering up a catchy and well groomed blend of minimal synth pop. With only a handful of tracks circulating the underground, cuts like “Rolling Shallow” and “It Feels Right” are fast becoming summer mix mandatories. We recently had the chance to chat with Allyce and Luke from the band and you can have a look at what they had to say below:

MOTION CNTRL – Rolling Shallow

B3: The next time that you go to a record store, what are you reaching for first?

ALLYCE: I always check out the dance/electronic section first. See what’s new. My go-to’s are late 70’s early 80’s music compilations. Always good finds there.

LUKE: some high quality cd , something that had a big budget and nice packaging and was on a major label. And anything between 1978 and 1987.

B3: Your song “It Feels Right” is pretty irresistible. How does “right” make you feel?

LUKE: whats “right” is recognizing the shared human experience. “it feels right” is about coming up in our modern world where you have to make strange choices, and remembering that we all are in it together.

ALLYCE: “It Feels Right” makes me think of finding personal fulfillment. And being in the moment without losing yourself in it all. When I’ve been good to myself and other people, things seem to come into my life at the right time and place. That’s when it feels “right” to me.

MOTION CNTRL – It Feels Right

B3: What inspired the creation of MOTION CNTRL and is there any musical history behind the band and it’s members?

ALLYCE: We met at our day job and started talking about music. We had both worked on music on our own before. I was definitely looking to collaborate with someone. When I heard Luke’s music I loved it. He liked my voice and writing so we just started working. It’s been fun to find our sound together and continue evolving musically.

LUKE: we met and had similar tastes in music so i had her sing over one of my tracks. her voice fit nicely with my music and she’s a quality person so it was clear we should keep it moving. i had done some music before but nothing to crazy.

B3: What do lyrics in music mean to you and do you think there is a certain role they play in songs?

LUKE: it depends on the style of music. its up to the song to determine how important the lyrics are. the lyrics in a rick springfield or def leppard song are not that important because the musics so big, but in a tracy chapman tune your catching every word. i generally don’t care much about lyrics, im much more focused on the production.

ALLYCE: I think lyrics in music can make statements and help people think or relate to a certain experience. It can be a powerful tool for change when an artist is sending a message, whether it be to an individual or to humanity as a whole. When an artist writes lyrics in a poetic way and tells a story, I’m much more connected to it.

B3: How do you feel about EDM?

LUKE: i grew up on it. future sound of london, apex twin, goldie, meat beat manifesto, i love all that shit. im especially feeling this new sound too, calvin harris, avicii, swedish house mafia, i was freaking out at wmc this year.

ALLYCE: I’ve always loved electronic dance music. I grew up on it as well in the bay area raver days lol.. The beginnings of electronic dance music is such a cool combination of punk, disco, funk, and electronic. All the music I love. I’ve been excited to hear current artists bring back some of the original sounds and combine them with new music. I’m definitely looking forward to what’s to come.

B3: What have you been listening to lately?

LUKE: my day to day music is all about a few hip hop blogs, so i’ve been on chief keef, meek mill, french montana etc.. but im also always listening to inxs, genesis, dire straits etc..

ALLYCE: Lately I’ve been listening to a little everything. I’ve liked what Trust, Grimes, and John Maus have been doing. Always love listening to Bryan Ferry.

B3: So we’ve got this time machine back at b3sci HQ. Where are we taking you guys?

MC: 500 years in the future. Whenever LA becomes like Blade Runner.

B3: When can fans expect something new from MOTION CNTRL?

MC: We have some remixes coming out soon for “It Feels Right” and “Rolling Shallow”. And we’re working on an EP to release this Fall.

B3: Any tour plans in the works?

MC: Right now we’re playing some shows in Los Angeles. We’re planning on doing shows in San Francisco and New York in the near future.

B3: What makes for an ageless record in your opinion?

ALLYCE: A timeless record to me has good songs from beginning to end and gives you an overall experience. And definitely a sound that is unique to that album.

LUKE: anytime a great songwriter a great producer a great engineer and great musicians get together i think timeless music is made.

B3: First impressions speak millions, especially in today’s digital age of short attention spans. Whenever anybody has the MOTION CNTRL “experience” for the first time, what is the first impression you’d like those listeners to walk away thinking?

LUKE: solid modern music

ALLYCE: We have fun making our music and I would hope that comes across through our music and gives people a good feeling. Hopefully it inspires dance moves or just nice tunes for a road trip.. Either would make me happy.

B3: Is there a song, or artist, that made you personally want to write and share music with people?

LUKE: “pyt” by micheal jackson was a big deal for me, aphex twin was big, and “waiting for the man” by lou reed

ALLYCE: It’s hard to just name one song or artist.. John Lennon’s “Imagine” comes to mind. So beautiful. And the popular Radiohead. I fell in love with their Bends album. And Bjork with her electronic melodies. All great inspirations.

B3: What are 3 things that you guys absolutely couldn’t live without?

MC: Good music, good people, fun times.

B3: What are 3 things that you guys could totally be cool living without?

MC: Close mindedness. Greed. Inequality.

Ultraista – Static Light

Nigel Godrich is causing somewhat of a stir with his new project Ultraista. The famed Radiohead producer (among so many other ‘humbling’ credits) has teamed up with Laura Bettinson and Joey Waronker for a new band that makes for a psychedelic, electronic-storm of pop abstraction. The textures in “Static Light” are so many to note and there’s even a hint of Kid A-like highlights in the track’s irresistible drive components.

RAVE’S FAVES! The Envy Corps – Ms. Hospital Corners

Contributed by Bruce Rave


If you are longing for some fresh Muse, this band by way of Iowa just might help you through the drought. The Envy Corp. definitely have that vibe with some Radiohead mixed in. They are a complex band with depth that requires some attention, and the groove will really begin to stick with you about halfway through the song. A couple of listens have worked for me. Think Muse with a groove on “Ms. Hospital Corners”.

Radiation City – Find It of Use


So we’ll cut right to it: Radiation City, a 5-piece out of Portland, sound A LOT like Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. Now the covers of NME, Q, etc are littered with band after band that have attempted to harness that formula with varying results (anyone remember jj72?). Radiation City does acquit themselves of the Buckleyhead sound quite well. Perhaps advantaging them over those aformentioned bands, RC do sprinkle varying other sounds and influence. We can hear some bossa nova, lounge-y pop (Broadcast, Goldfrapp, etc.), maybe some Stereolab in there (who knows). “Find It of Use” is the lead track of Radiation City’s upcoming Cool Nightmare EP.

Although we’ve come to the end of the road, still Adele we can’t let you go. We’ve reached 2011’s closing hour and now it is time: b3sci presents it’s Top 50 Albums of 2011. No one’s even come close to having the year Adele’s had. The most albums sold in a single year since 2004, two of the biggest singles of the year, etc, a truly international breakthrough both commercially and critically on a level we haven’t seen in a long time. Adele, our girl, the crown is yours. 21 is b3sci’s Album of the year.

So where the fuck is Adele on many of these respected-indie-press-dude best of lists? That period between Nov 2010 when “Rolling in the Deep” first broke and the lead up to the album’s release in late January, Adele ruled the blogosphere, the fold was united. Then “RITD” got overplayed to the point of absurdity, your mom bought the record, probably your grandma bought it too; those bros that listen to Foo Fighters and Deadmau5 started bumping “Someone Like You” out their trunk. Soon, the “wrong people” liked 21 and Adele’s brief moment atop the indiesphere was over. Right.

Thanks for reading this year, y’all. We’ve got some big plans for 2012. Stay tuned. Much love.

LIVE SHOW REVIEW: The National / Sharon Van Etten @ Beacon Theatre, New York 12/13/11

Contributed by Erin Routson



Out of the week-long residency the National spent at the Beacon, this was the show I most wanted to be present for, in order to see Sharon Van Etten. (And, crossing my fingers that they’d bring her out to do “Think You Can Wait.”) Earlier in the day I tweeted about the over/under on me crying during the show, knowing that I was going to see two acts I really love by myself, a perfect set-up for tears.

I got to the Beacon early, even though it was assigned seating. The crowd was totally not what I expected, so many couples and so many pairs of bros. I don’t know what it is about the National; I have a very specific view of who I think listens to them, people who shop for well-tailored clothes, people whose interests tip toward the literary, people who find themselves unsatisfied with their white-collar jobs and drown it all in small-batch bourbon. I guess I’m wrong about that, or I guess that is a very small sect of an audience that, like I said, is full of bros.

There’s nothing wrong with bros, I guess, as long as they’re not committing sexual assault or objectifying me at a bar. Maybe I am a bro – two of the things I love the most are the NBA and this band. More or less, I was just surprised how many would come out of the woodwork to see a band that has less in common with OAR and more in common with T.S. Eliot, at least in my mind.

Sharon Van Etten took the stage to a not-full crowd (bros aren’t down with Sharon, yet) and opened with “Love More”; whoever bet that I would cry was right within a few minutes. At this point the people in the seats next to me hadn’t arrived, so I was free to let it all out to a woman’s voice that I find truly haunting and amazing. I’m a sucker for voices. Time and Temperature, Elephant Micah: their voices are two of my favorites and SVE is right up there with them. Moving through “One Day”, “Save Yourself” to “Don’t Do It”, what I’d consider one of the saddest songs ever written, the backing band laid the perfect groundwork for her powerful yet plaintive voice.

From there she shredded through “Peace Signs” and then into new material, Aaron Dessner joining her for an apprehensive and incisive version of “Serpents”, which definitely has a sound that borders on what the National do with their own work on High Violet. While its clear that performing still makes SVE a little nervous between songs as she awkwardly banters, she has no trouble fully immersing herself in performing her work. She knows how to feel what she is doing and it is one of the things that make her songs so easy to fall into. Those who got to the show too late to see this honestly missed something that I imagine will grow and only get better.

By the time the National’s pre-show music was going full-tilt, all of the bros and their girlfriends had arrived. I knew that any crying I would do publicly was over; I also knew that there are really only a handful of their songs that would get it out of me and most are never done live. The pictured screen went up during “Wild Boys” and for some reason I was convinced that it was the music they would take the stage to which I found really endearing. It wasn’t. Something else started up after it. Eventually the Ohio-bred gentlemen took the stage and opened up with “Start A War.”

The set was heavy on High Violet material, but “Boxer,” “Alligator,” “Cherry Tree” and new songs were all represented. For quite a few of the songs, Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) took the stage to sing vocals and play some guitar. Friends who had attended Monday’s show with the War on Drugs said that wasn’t the case for them: Tuesday night bonus! While I’d love to outline each individual song, that would take forever; it was a long set, but one I could’ve stayed hours for.

“Bloodbuzz Ohio” is not my favorite off of High Violet, but it seems to be like “Float On” for Modest Mouse: it gets everyone going when it’s done live. The momentum of the song lends itself to live performance, and the bros do love a singalong. A difference between this and the last time I saw them was the projection screen and intense lighting that accompanied each song. They’ve also gone the route of video of the band from the stage, something that reminded me of what Radiohead began doing at their shows a few years ago.

Matt Berninger’s voice is why I got into the National in the first place. Years ago a friend and I were discussing music and I mentioned that I like “weird” voices, and he insisted I listen to Boxer. I’ve been hooked ever since. (Though Tom Waits has never melted my icy heart.) One thing I will never get used to, though, no matter how many times I see this band, is Berninger’s proclivity to bark some of his lyrics. It started in “Squalor Victoria” and of course carried through to “Mr. November.” Hearing it, to me, hurts, like a pack of Dobermans piercing your eardrums when provoked.

As I dreamed, Sharon Van Etten came out to do “Think You Can Wait”, but it wasn’t as powerful as I thought it would be for me live. Maybe it’s one that just belongs on my headphones late at night. “Anyone’s Ghost” ended up being the most memorable to me all night, which is one that had fallen off the radar for me; “Afraid of Everyone” and “Lemonworld” were in much heavier rotation when I was listening to High Violet non-stop. A pleasant, sad, neurotic surprise, nonetheless.

The encore consisted of the SVE performance, “Fake Empire” (live horns will never cease to bring a smile to my face), “Terrible Love” with Annie Clark, and an acoustic singalong version of “Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks” for which everyone, SVE and Annie Clark included, took the stage. Hearing the whole crowd join in to sing was a weird, wonderful summer camp moment, even in the fake-cold of December that was outside the walls. The melancholy of a song I’d never hesitate to call a soul-destroyer was broken up by some random dude entering early with his cry of “CHANDELIERS!”, sending everyone in the crowd into a short burst of giggling.

Bro vibes aside, the National’s lyrics end up sounding like an uneasy, dark reinterpretation of “Once In a Lifetime” paired with anxiety-threaded, pounding-like-a-nervous-heart instrumentation. I feel too close to what they are revealing, sometimes. I feel like they’re blowing my cover by broadcasting thoughts I have about achievement, love, and being from where I am. Maybe that bro was right to break up the tension and sadness of the encore with his outburst. Maybe it’s true – you have to laugh so you don’t cry.

Lady Gaga – Marry the Night (The Weeknd & Illangelo Remix)


Usually when an artist underwhelms with a release (Radiohead) a remix LP can’t be too far behind. But we like this. This is the sort of direction Gaga should’ve taken with the Born This Way record. Sort of pushing current electronic/r&b/pop into the mainstream. That’s how the iconic pop artists re-invent themselves and maintain relevance. They take a sound not quite yet in the mainstream they have ears on and make it mainstream. Gaga’s Born This Way remix LP is due December 6th.
