The Silent Years – Someone To Keep Us Warm

With the recent success of the Detroit indie-pop duo Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Jr, it’s important to think about history. The two members met while recording some music for Joshua Epstein’s former band, The Silent Years. One of the best acts to ever come out of Royal Oak, Michigan, the four piece’s groovy indie rock paved the way for your favorite hits now. While they are not completely dissolved, The Silent Years are on an official indefinite hiatus until Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Jr. is done being so busy. Check out the song “Someone To Keep Us Warm” off their 2006 self-titled album below. Read More…

Jamaican Queens – Kids Get Away

Michigan’s own Jamaican Queens could be one of the biggest things to come out of Detroit since Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Jr. With a unique mix of indie and electronic elements, JQ comes across as a blending of Hot Chip and dubstep. Their music is a pretty good representation of just how weird these fellas are, and if you’re really interested, check out the website (it’ll throw you for a loop). With their self-titled album being the first release in what will hopefully be a long career, the band has nowhere to go but up. Check out the video for the track “Kids Get Away” from their self-titled album below. Read More…
