Jump into the studio with us this week as Bombay Bicycle Club take over to play a handful of songs, including two from their new album A Different Kind Of Fix. The band took a different road to where they recorded the album. They’ve never been away from London before, but this time they did recording sessions in Hamburg, Germany and Atlanta, GA. Jim Abbiss and Ben Allen were brought for production duties. In addition to the performance, we’ve got lead singer/guitarist Jack Steadman and drummer Suren de Saram chatting with us about the new album.

Today I want to apprise to a next reasoning!
I want to tell you that, sometimes I fall in love with the lyrics of the fields!
Oh my , I love the lyrics of the fields,
How lovely is when you find your self standing , in the mid of a brightly , very wide, smooth, and Peacefully field , with a sight sings till end of the rainbow , along with the bright blue , and the lovely atmosphere.
Watching birds in the sky, and much more nature lyrics; When the wind is blowing , you take in a very deep breath, and you say, life is in me!
You check the green grass, you lay on it, you jump up, you clap your hands, you roll on it, you trust it, you check up the rocks , and the mountains, You feel real, you feel free, and you say yeah: am Out of danger,
you sing, you scream very loud, none call you crazy , and you say to your self, there is no one to come blame me, because of anything, I don't have no material object around me! And you don't feel guilty of anything, you find your self out of brutality and dirt .
As you know how hard is life in the city, within the high heels houses 4 corners up , you feel depressive, sometimes.
Everyone is watching you, none trust you, everyone suspect that you re doing something wrong, you live up there in the high tower building , no good neighbourhood , struggling , to pay you rent monthly, how hard it is to get a job, every time when you drop down on the street , you have to watch out how do you behave, and make sure that you pay off your taxes on the right time, or you go to jail condemned as a social trickster. How much you have to give , how many times you have to prove that you ´re flexible, you re a good , your re, very intelligent , on the other hand , we pretend, and we look
forward for goods, according to what it takes. But now a want to stop and take a very deep breath right here on this field of

Last.fm Live celebrated its inaugural NYC event this past February with four psych-rock bands at the small venue – with a BIG soundsystem – Dominion NY. Fans of the psychedelic spectrum were treated to a range of rising new artists within the genre (and beyond), and the uninitiated were rewarded for their music curiosity with three killer live sets, an incredible sound system, and a pre-release listen to Mexican Summer’s newest offering, Mike Wexler‘s Dispossession.
The evening kicked off with the listening party, the mood set perfectly by Mike Wexler‘s hushed vocals and otherworldly arrangements. Read Street Date’s review of the record here, as well as host your own personal listening party thanks to SPIN’s album stream.
Friend Roulette took the stage first – well, 6 out of 7 members of the band did. Their bassoonist’s flight was delayed coming out of Florida, but thankfully he made it just in time to perform with the rest of the band for the last three songs. The crowd was enraptured by FR’s progressive and jazz-infused arrangements: cascading violin solos and dual drummers led both singers through bohemian daydreams, pondering over clouds in a sky circa 1991 and the warmth bestowed by a sunlit windowsill. Watch them perform “Warm” below; stay tuned for more videos later in the week!
Another Mexican Summer artist, Quilt is to energy as Mike Wexler is to subdued. The trio from Boston channeled early Rolling Stones as they tore through tracks off their self-titled album and a new cut. Proving the versatility of psychedelic music, the group reworked a number of their tunes from acoustic golden brown to far-out rockers and the result was killer. Stream “Penobska Oakwalk” by following the link down below, and check back next videos for more audio and video of Quilt‘s performance.
Closing out the evening was Amen Dunes, one of the strongest stewards of psych music around New York. Predominantly the work of one Damon McMahon, Amen have released a number of recordings with various labels – personal favorite is Dia- but nothing that has come close to the blissed out sonic force of their live show. Sounding like an ecstatic priest channeling James Morrison in a cieling-less cathedral, Amen Dunes proved how harrowing psych rock can be when performed right.
In the meantime, make sure you grab tickets to our next Last.fm Presents Live show at Brooklyn Bowl. We’ll be celebrating a late night full of disco as Escort performs a rare set with their full seventeen piece band and DFA provides sure to be stellar DJ sets before and after. Come dance, bowl, eat, and drink with Last.fm March 23rd — more info and ticket sales here!

Let’s face it, getting hurt badly is not fun. But in the case of Luke Smallbone of For King & Country, it changed his future. At young ages of 5 & 7, he and brother Joel, along with their family, moved from Australia to Nashville in 1991. Their dad was a concert promoter and was offered, and took, a job here in the states. At this early age they were exposed to music and the folks who made it. Often artists would come by the house, ranging from Amy Grant to Stryper. When Luke was in high school, his dream was to go on and play college basketball. In his junior year, in his first game, after starting the game of with 6 points and 6 rebounds, he tore his ACL. That was the end of his sports dream.
