June 24th we’re presenting a Crush mini-fest as a part of L Magazine’s annual Northside Festival!! We’re packing 2 rooms with bands we’re crushin on… Crush is a monthly party showcasing “Dance Bands We Love” – bands who’s music makes us feel like we’re bathing in champagne and skipping through meadows. They don’t make us dance like say, the cabbage patch or running man, but they move us all the same.
Yes Giantess is an indie pop quartet based out of Boston Massachusetts. With Ratatat-sized synths and huge pop choruses, Yes Giantess is pretty much the sonic equivalent of flying down the yellow brick road while its raining ecstasy and skittles. Their music sounds like they put Passion Pit, MGMT, Friendly Fires, and a synthesizer in a blender, mixed it up and came up with their own individual sound. Yes Giantess will definitely have you up and moving to the sounds of their synths.
Fang Island describes its sound as “everyone high-fiving everyone.” And, the Brooklyn quintet’s anthemic and soaring songs make it quite possibly one of few bands befitting such description. Its finger-tapping guitar lines, chanted vocals, triumphant harmonies and overall perky songs hearken to the sort of “Total Music” of the Fucking Champs, Jay Reatard, Ponytail, Kraftwerk, Marnie Stern, Thin Lizzy, et al. But, perhaps more so, its songs are like the music in your head at that moment when everything feels just right: that first kiss, that high score on the video game, buying your first small nation in cash… you know, good stuff.
Bounce with Big Freedia, Rusty Lazer, and New Orleans Bounce Dancers Big Freedia, the self-titled queen diva, is one of Bounce music superstars. Bounce – derrier-focused beats with call & response lyrics music — started exploding out of New Orleans a few years ago, powered by the queer rap community. Don’t want to dance? It’s not up to you. Bounce will bring the NOLA heat until you lean over and shake it. Big Freedia will be joined by DJ Rusty Lazer and a posse of New Orleans Bounce Dancers.
MillionYoung This one-man dream pop band follows in the footsteps Toro Y Moi and Washed Out, with hypnotic, loping synth loops and floating vocals. Thank you, Mike Diaz, for these beautifully chilly soundscapes. We can’t wait to share you with everyone else.
Dinosaur Feathers “With tribal drum patterns and intricate dance rhythms at their forefront, Dinosaur Feathers manage to take a sound typically tagged “experimental” and turn it into something warm and accessible.” – the L Magazine “With little more than a drum machine, acoustic guitar, and keys, this duo spins a skewed funhouse of pop music…” – Earfarm
