Laurie Anderson, 80s experimental, musical storytelling artist. Influenced by Brian Eno, Phillip Glass and William Burroughs, she took electronic music and performance art into a new direction. KXLU DJ, The Markness played, Laurie Anderson's most popular song,'O Superman' this afternoon. I realized I had another track from her I liked and wanted to find out more about her and share it.

The Echo turned Rockville...

The Echo is Rockville CA! It's sooooooo bad but I can't stop watching them because they're short and it's so funny to watch the 'east side hipster' scene completely played out. There's a little mystery ' Shadowscene ' girl snapping photos and ironic band names and real bands on stage, ala, The O.C. I am totally DEB the round-faced, brunette in glasses that does A&R and smokes pot in the bathroom. I would never say, "are you totally damaged?!" or "MAJOR!" though. As if!


DEB from Rockville ("me")

For some reason I have always liked to identify with characters that are most like me. It started with dolls, I was Samantha from The American Girl collection purely based on the fact that I'm a brunette. My blond sister was Kirsten, who also has blond hair of course.

Samantha, I called her, "Sam"

I meeeeeeeeeaaaaannnn.... she's wearing kitten ears. Actually it's a bow but I pretended they were kitten ears. This was my girl, I wanted everything they ever made for her. My dad built her a closet for Christmas one year with hooks and everything. I'm loving these outfits, so Blair Waldorf .

The amazing Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl

Not sure how I got on that tangent but it all relates.

"The series of webisodes created by Josh Schwartz (Gossip Girl, Chuck, The O.C.) along with noted music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas (Twilight, Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, The O.C.), Rockville is the first web series of its kind, marrying what you love about all of your favorite TV entertainment into one highly-addictive web series. With each episode featuring a new band performing two live performances on the "Rockville" stage, the site allows fans to engage with the series by sharing/embedding the performances on their social media sites, view character playlists and then purchase the songs via a link to iTunes."

We Have Band


I like this cute hipster-new wave-pop band from the UK. They did well at sxsw, but I'm not sure if they have anything beyond this one good song. I listened to five of their other songs on their myspace page but did not like them so much. Anyhow, here's the song I like. It's kind of fun to dance to!

MP3 - We Have Band - You Came Out (demo)

This just in........ I like this song/video too... except for going too far into the mouth and seeing that guy's nasty molars before I've had my coffee. There is just something off about this group. It's like they're copying a 'hipster' formula, but it's not coming off natural. There are some good songs there... any opinions about them?
