Flower Flower is a young Miami band with a killer blend of sounds: Dischord-inspired tangential limbs with a Saddle Creek-y folk backbone. Stream standout track ‘Old House (Winter)’ on MySpace, where you can contact the band to buy their latest EP, Go, Mordecai!, or purchase the disc April 2nd when they perform @ Sweat Records w/ Ice Cream.
What better way to start off the week than with some fresh Miami hip hop? Check out ‘All I Had To Do’ from Space Voodoo Crystal over at their MySpace page. RZA-inspired production set over a pitch-shifted, inter-dimensional soundscape informs us of what it might be like to listen to the Souls Of Mischief while watching Mr. Wizard with the sound off… awesome.
The legendary Miami band Floor will perform @ Churchill’s Pub Saturday, March 27th, foreshadowing their massive box set Below & Beyond available for pre-order via Robotic Empire. The set features ten 12” LP’s, one 7” EP, eight CDs and a 32-page booklet documenting the band’s career. On top of that, the release is limited to 305 copies (!!!).
Sweat Records is Miami’s musical hub, connecting the city’s sprawling cultural output. If any loose threads remained in the musical sweater that is Miami, Sweat co-owners Lolo and Jsin have tied them with the unveiling of a event engine “for South Floridians to use or peruse for concert news.” On this platform artists and promoters post events, and fans can quickly find what to see and where to go. Awesome.
Head over to MySpace to hear the ambient soundscapes of Genghis Kian. The Miami musician’s compositions are both Disney daylight and after-midnight at the same time, creating the sonic textures of standout tracks like ‘d4r4i4n4k v4i4n4e4g4a4r’ and ‘Meeses’.
