21h30 – Baked Goods + Great Valley 21h30facebook.com/goodsbakedbakedgoods.bandcamp.com/Baked GoodsLuke Harun is one of the hardest-working musicians in a city of hard-working musicians. Most weekends you’ll catch him holding it down with Nubians or Dream Girls or occasionally The Brabazons. Somehow alongside all of those commitments this past year he has found the time to drop a relentless string of residential-dwelling lo-fi pop gems as Baked Goods. Basement Glam sees him moving through the house from the bedroom to the titular basement. The songs taken together give him the room to bust out a fully articulated aesthetic vision. This cassette is ten tracks of the crunchy, ear-tickling, slurpee-calibre goodness that constitutes a suburban summer dream./www.facebook.com/GreatValleythegreatvalley.bandcamp.com/Great ValleyPretend PopGreat Valley. We are a sci-fi glam band from Brattleboro VT with members of Blanche Blanche Blanche and Punks on Mars. Reviews have called Great Valley "swirling, distorted, fabulous" and "like Twin Peaks with more exotic drugs..."
"Rivers Monroe has emerged as one of Philadelphia's most popular new bands, beloved by an increasingly fervent local and national fan following for their extremely energetic, driving and mainstream brand of music, flavored with a fresh, new pop/rock and pop/punk mixture. With their highly anticipated album ""Meteors"" about to drop, the band has exceeded all expectations with their collection of energetic and inspiring songs. The Philadelphia based quintet released their first full-length album 'Electric Life' in 2009, and their poppy hooks, passionate lyrics and enthusiastic performances landed them a national tour sponsored by Coca Cola, Sunoco and Motel 6. The band has shared stages with platinum selling artists like Jennifer Paige, Akon, Snoop Dogg, Ben Folds, Guster and AllStar Weekend, and they continue to tour non-stop as their fans anxiously await their new album."
Colin Hay may be best known as the lead singer for Men At Work, the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80s with anthems like ""Down Under,"" ""Overkill,"" and ""Who Can It Be?"" Hay's justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 solo albums and he reckons that Gathering Mercury may be the best of the lot. ""These are some of the strongest songs I've ever written,"" Hay says from his home studio in the hills of Topanga Canyon. ""The loss of my father last year brought an extra emotional contingent to them. I don't have an idea of an afterlife, but I do feel like I had his help when I was writing this album. He wasn't a songwriter himself, but he was a good singer, so I put myself in his place and wrote songs like he might have done."" Hay recorded and produced the ten songs on Gathering Mercury in his home studio, with the help of his touring band and friends like bass player Jimmy Earl and pianist Jeff Babko from Jimmy Kimmel's band, drummer Randy Cook, Cuban percussionist Luis Conte (Madonna, Ray Charles) and his wife Cecilia Noel on backing vocals. The arrangements feature Hay's quizzical, instantly recognizable tenor supported by acoustic instruments and mellow electric guitar accents.
