Tuesday Double Feature: Mr.Little Jeans "Good Mistake" & Kongos "Come With Me Now"

This week's Tuesday Double Feature is just unique enough to catch your interest, so take a second and enjoy.

Mr. Little Jeans - "Good Mistake"

Monica Birkenes, aka Mr. Little Jeans is celebrating the fresh release of her debut album Pocketknife on Harvest Records just this last month. The Norwegian singer creates a tangled syth-pop that's rich with hypnotically danceable groove-beats. Like an 80's inspired new wave dream this artist is sure to be quick to make a name for herself.

Kongos - "Come With Me Now"

The energetic rock of the Kongos is powerfully aggressive and ripe with the unique accents of according and slide guitar. Quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with, the band has seen recent wide spread exposure with radio attention, spots on network and cable TV, highlight in the Rolling Stones February feature "10 New Artists You Need to Know About" and with a song in the coveted slot of  ITunes 'Single of the Week'. Spring and summer will see them continuing to support their Epic Records release Lunatic with a supporting slot with Alice and Chains and several festival dates including our own Sasquatch Festival.

Living Room Performance: Best Coast - "Baby I'm Crying"

Best Coast - "Baby I'm Crying"

Southern California based Best Coast offers up this soulful ballad from their latest Fade Away EP. A wonderful contrast to their more guitar pop tunes, this track reveals a sweet vulnerability and further fleshes out this band.
A LiveAudio recording, this session was captured with a binauarl microphones set up for an immersive 360 degree field of sound. Developed to provide listeners with a more authentic live sound experience, the microphones are built into the heads of human dummies and factor in the way sound travels at different rates of speed to each ear. The result is a three-dementional sound best experienced through head phones of a Jambox speaker and offers the audience a true audio picture.
