Fitz & the Tantrums have L.A. peeps abuzz

Of bands I’ve recently interviewed The Constellations gained many Lollapolooza fans while Matt & Kim stirred up the Lolla throng as always.  The Drums were a highlight the prior weekend at Australia’s Splendour in the Grass. The three band interviews are here. I understand Rafeal Saadiq made quite an impression at the festival and of course Gogol Bordello always is a knock out..Speaking of great live bands, Titus Andronicus showed on Jimmy Fallon why people love ’em live.  See it here...Some larger mainstream alternative stations are considering The Drums’ “Let’s Go Surfing”.  Such a radio-perfect tune.  Someone needs to give it a shot!…L.A. tastemakers are buzzing about blue-eyed soul band Fitz and the Tantrums. They’re known to be great live and their album drops later this month.  I find all of it a compelling listen, although it’s closer to pop than to rock…I’m pleased to have been Music Supervisor for the roadtrip mockumentary “Go West Happy Cow”Scott Perry of the New Music Tipsheet sends an astute weekly email on music business marketing strategies.  It’s an interesting read for anyone wanting to learn more about the music world.  Sign up hereUSA Today actually put Iron Maiden in the category of bands doing “boomer revival tours”.  Guess the paper is unaware the band completed their most successful U.S. tour to date and are in the process of headlining various European festivals.  I review their LA show on my June 21 post.  The average age of a Maiden crowd is less than the age of the band’s first album”Killers”…MTV’s first aired clip long ago was “Video Killed the Radio Star”.  The Limousines have a new song “Internet Killed the Video Star”.  Check out my fave current tracks on the front page of the Go Deep site.  You can click on any one or even better, just let ’em play!
