Tiny Cover Band on Giant System

Just in time for the Holidays, Giant Sytem has released a very festive episode featuring Tiny Cover Band.


Whispertown(solo) plays the Bootleg Theater Jan. 12th

You could make apt comparisons between The Whispertown 2000 and bands like Rilo Kiley, and you would be justified -- Blake Sennett and Jenny Lewis are some of the bands principal supporters even when songwriter Morgan Nagler was flying solo. Their sunny Californian folk dances through your headphones, especially during these winter days, but there seems a nagging lack of washboard percussion. Songs like "Old Times" is a hand clapping, foot stomping jamboree, with Nagler's honey vocals leading the way.

The band just recently released The Get Happy EP featuring gems "Get Happy" and "The Everybody" as a followup to 2008's full length Swim and I can only hope it's a hint of another full length around the corner. Nagler will be playing solo under the moniker Whispertown(solo) at the Bootleg Theater on Jan. 12th with Jake Bellows(Neva Dinova), The Heartstring Symphony and The Quick Hellos.

Penguin Prison releases single + tours west coast with Girl Talk

After appearing at the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival a few weeks ago, NYC dico wizard Penguin Prison just released a 7" of his single "Golden Train", a track that chugs along fueled by synth, percussion and Penguin Prison's signature voice. The single is already available for download online, but only 300 copies of the 7" will circulate worldwide. These vinyls are so coveted that the guys from Holy Ghost! tweeted, "Save a copy please." If fans cannot grab a copy, they won't have to wait too long for Penguin Prison's next album, which Neon Gold Record said will be released early next year. Here's the link to order the 7". The Penguin will be touring the west coast with his band in January supporting Girl Talk. - Abigail P. Devora
