Tonight on The Basement we heard from a couple of bands including 2 high school outfits Buddy and Bike and Cicades. Along with local staples Dizzy Dearest both talking about upcoming shows at Macs Bar.
Heres the playlist from tonight’s show:
The new video from the trio of sisters is here, and it is our Jam of the Day today!
Today’s Jam of the Day is a new single from the Black Lips. Their new album Underneath the Rainbow is slated to drop this month.
Between the Grammys and the Oscars, you’ve probably seen rapper/producer/fashion designer/really talented guy Pharrell Williams’ big, brown 20 gallon hat in the media (or if you’re Sandra Bullock, from outer space). Because no one would willingly wear something like that, you’re probably asking, “Impact, you’re a hip music site, why is he really wearing that hat? What’s the scoop?” Well, dear readers, while no one uses the term “scoop” anymore, we may have some insight for you.
10. He lost a bet.
Maybe Pharrell’s friends bet him that he couldn’t eat 50 hot dogs in 15 minutes. Maybe he bet them that he would win the Oscar for Best Original Song. Maybe he bet that the Broncos would win the Super Bowl. He might be the man behind “Get Lucky,” but eventually everyone’s luck runs out.

Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers are at SXSW in Austin, Texas this year! To celebrate our local friends’ fantastic voyage to the annual music festival next week, we’ve prepared a special SXSW cut of our Spartan Session for their song “Future Talk.” Be on the lookout for our Director’s Cut of the video which will premiere Monday 3/11, officially kicking off the week of music in Austin, in addition to other SXSW related content right here on impact89fm.org.
Perhaps it was after digital media became so widespread, or maybe it was the internet, or it could be a change in music sub-culture itself, but whatever the reason genres seem to have taken on a wholly new entity. Their original use as a categorizer seems moot now, instead replaced with arguments on the subtle differences between subgenres. Go look at any music video on youtube and you’ll fine approximate comments like this: “This band is clearly glitch-hop whereas that is dubstep;” “These guys are totally melodic death metal, how can you even say this is metalcore?”
Annie Clark is the picture of perfection: she’s adorable, talented, and just the right amount of unpredictable. In this fourth solo-album, her performance and her art form are taken to a whole another level. Her album alone strings words and ideas together that sentences and essays could not convey to the masses. Her multiple talents shine in every single track as her voice sweeps you away and rocks your body ever so slightly into this captivating vortex that is St. Vincent.
Today’s Jam of the Day comes from Ty Segall’s latest project, Fuzz. The video for “Raise” premiered last week in all of its crispy, crunchy San Fran rock glory.
