Six Picks With Magic Giant

Six Things We Hope We Do During Our First Tour”

Heading out on tour for the first time is a milestone for any band. Just like going out and seeing a band you love for the first time is a unique experience for any fan. Many of us won’t be taking the stage anytime soon, unlike Magic Giant who are preparing for their first tour. To help bring some of the excitement to you, we ask them to share six things they hope they get to do while out on their first tour.

1) Befriend Three Baristas in Every City: 

We are going to some great coffee cities (Seattle, Portland, San Francisco) and will be doing a lot of traveling and will definitely need some Java. If we can get three Baristas to support our show and rally the folks, that’s a cool start.

2) Make the Door Guys Dance:

We’ll fill the seats, but the true test of a show is getting the big guy to bust a move.

3)Never Say the Phrase “tip your Bartender” While Onstage:

All other clichés are fair game

4) Jam with Other bands on the Bill:

Our fiddle/banjo player Zambricki is kind of a shredder, he likes to duel it out so hopefully we’ll have some gamey fellow acts

5) Sleep Outside at least Once:

Hopefully, because it’s a beautiful night under the stars and not due to other types of debauchery

6) Get People to Sing our Lyrics for Songs They’ve Never Heard:

We’ve only released a handful of songs and it’s been fun to see the audience catching chorus’ singing along to ones that aren’t even out yet.

As a bonus you can download their three song EP here!

Six Picks With Molly Roth

Six Wardrobe Must Haves”

 With the holidays approaching are you finding yourself struggling to think up gift ideas for your Christmas list? Not sure what to wear to that party? Already planning to spend the giftcards you’ll receive? Well ladies, we may just have the perfect bit of inspiration for you. We ask our current favorite fashion icon, Molly Roth, to share her six wardrobe must haves. If this doesn’t have you clicking away online shopping while taking a listen to Molly’s tunes we don’t know what will!

1.)   An Oversized Sweater- I’m talking warm and fuzzy and big. Something you can match a pair of tights or leggings to with a pair of boots. I think this look is cool and casual and something to which every girl can cozy up to.

2.)   A Watch- Doesn’t have to be fancy! But big gold or silver-colored watches are a hot accessory item and show that you are fashion-forward. I got my watch at a thrift store and I love it. It ties together your everyday look.

3.)   Comfy Pumps- I’d have to say I cherish the solid-colored pumps that I have most. They are a STAPLE for my look and I HAVE to feel safe and comfortable in heels because I perform on stage in them! My most favorite is Qupid’s  Mary Jane pump. They aren’t too tall, strap on so they stay snug, feel comfy to walk in (and dance in!), and come in a variety of interesting colors so I can match them to just about anything

4.)   Matching Set of Lingerie- There, I said it! I have discovered that no matter what I wear on the outside, if I am wearing something sexy and coordinated underneath, I feel like a whole new level of superwoman. Don’t believe me? Try it, Ladies! It will be your best-kept secret. J Check out Dita Von Tees’s new line!

5.)   Pencil Skirt- a solid fitted pencil skirt just says, “I’m the Queen. And I need 100 copies on my desk. By noon.”

6.)   The Dress- Ok. Everyone either has one and if you don’t, you NEED one. This is the dress that makes you feel AH-MAZING. It can look however you want. It can be tight. It can be loose and flowy. It can be black, blue, red, yellow—whatever. It can only be worn out on nights where you are going out with the ladies, turning heads, or on a date with someone super special, but most importantly when you need to be feeling like a million bucks. I’d actually be lying if I said I only have one of these.

Six Picks With WALLA

Six Things We Love About Our Home Countries”

While WALLA may be living the American dream now in Los Angeles, it wasn’t always the case. This band features members from the USA, Mexico/El Salvador, Italy, Indonesia, Brazil, and Korea. We ask the unique multi-continental band to share with us the six things they love about their home countries!

1) Food. The best thing above all else is the food, since you can’t really get the authentic taste in America.

2) Music. We miss the music.  We like to bring our influences from our own native countries into our music all the time when we write.

3) Atmosphere. Everyone loves the feeling of being on vacation.  We all come from places that have a lot of nature and interesting geography.

4) New People. We love meeting and interacting with lots of different people. They come from all over the world and have different outlooks and viewpoints on life.

5) Family. Family is also important to us and some of us haven’t seen our families in a while.

6) The Air. Lastly we miss the air, it can be pretty hard to breathe being in Los Angeles.

“Six Best Things To Come Out Of Seattle”

When you think of Philadelphia many can’t help but think of Philly Cheesestakes or the Liberty Bell  or deep dish pizza and Chicago and the cold. Throw Boston into the mix and many may think of “chowdah” or the Boston Tea Party. But what about Seattle? Find yourself only thinking of The Space Needle? Well we asked Seattle’s own Craymer to share with us the six best things to come from Seattle. So get reading and be prepared for that next trivia night.

1. Costco – Let’s face it, food is essential; and when you want to top off your stomach with a $1.50 hot dog after circling the free samples around the store, there’s no better way.

2. Amazon – Word is that Amazon now has 15,000 robots working on the floor of the warehouses, transporting, boxing, and sending your items to you in a mere 13 minutes after you click that order button. What!?

3. Nordstrom – Let’s talk return policy. Nordstrom doesn’t have one, meaning you can return anything years later with no receipt. Now that’s customer service.

4. Boeing – Because flying is fun, vacations are fun, and it is all possible because of Boeing.

5. Jones Soda – I have over 100 Jones Soda bottles sitting on my shelf that I used to collect and save when I was a kid. My mom tried to get rid of them. She tried.

6. Kenny G – No Christmas would be the same without the Kenny G Christmas album playing in the background, along with some wine and a snuggly fireplace

Set Review: Pierce The Veil – “The World Tour” (November 22, 2014 – Hartford, CT) http://thesoundalarm.com/?p=17866 http://thesoundalarm.com/?p=17866#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 20:28:40 +0000 http://thesoundalarm.com/?p=17866

Vic Fuentes

By Emily J Kaufman

It’s closing in on 8:30 at night at The Webster Theater. The crowd is getting anxious. The main room in this Hartford, CT venue is packed and bustling with noise from the audience. The venue is one of the smallest on the tour, only packing in about 1,250 people, but it is still rumbling with voices and screams. I make my way to the stage through a sea of young adults. I might be the oldest person here. Usually a room full of adolescents means I’m about to embark on a journey of poorly written music with catchy hooks and little substance. I was about to be proven very wrong.

As I settle in with my camera, the lights change and the speakers begin to play Pierce The Veil’s “May These Noises Startle You in Your Sleep.” Vic Fuentes and his brother Mike, along with guitarist Tony Perry and bassist Jaime Preciado make their way onto the stage playing the opening track from their 2012 LP, Collide With The Sky. The song leads straight into the hit “Hell Above,” and the crowd is singing so loud you can barely hear the band itself. Confetti cannons are set off. I can feel the energy from the crowd pumping through my body.

Vic 3

Pierce The Veil takes it back to their first full-length album Selfish Machines with “Caraphernelia.” As Vic croons, “Sunshine, there ain’t a thing that you can do that’s gonna ruin my night,” the audience lights up. This crowd favorite originally features A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon, but PTV bassist Jaime Preciado steps in and fills his shoes perfectly for this live rendition. The band continues to play fan favorites, including my own, “Bulls In The Bronx” and “Disasterology.” Following “Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears,” Vic sings a very sentimental “Hold On Till May,” bringing the audience along for the emotional ride.

Audience

Keeping to the impassioned vibe in the room, the four guys from San Diego, CA swap out their electric guitars for acoustic. They play a beautifully stripped down version of “I’m Low On Gas and You Need a Jacket” to a quiet yet intense crowd, singing softly to hear the sensitivity in Vic’s voice. Pierce The Veil kicks it into overdrive for their final three songs. The energy in the room elevates, with the crowd jumping and singing along. Before playing their last track, Vic brings Sleeping With Sirens’ singer Kellin Quinn out to join him. Together they perform “King For A Day.” Dominating the stage as a team, the two use the back and forth style of the song in their delivery. During the song, the confetti cannons go off one more time, adding just enough excitement to the room that the venue can barely contain it.

Crowd

I never would have been able to guess the quality of showmanship Pierce The Veil has from listening to them on my commute to school. Despite the younger crowd, the band commanded a room with technically driven tracks and red-hot enthusiasm. This show has only further excited me for their upcoming album next year. There is still plenty of time to catch this fantastic quartet on The World Tour between now and April 2015, depending on where in the world you live. Ticket information can be found on the tour’s official website.

I Carry Your Heart is the newest installment from Bostonian quintet, Nemes. This album is a little all over the place on first listen and it is hard to pin down an actual genre of this band. As a new listener to Nemes it was a little off putting at first, like they did not know what type of music they wanted to play. But as I really got into the album, I fell in love with the lyrics. The silvery tone in vocalists Dave Anthony and Josh Knowles’ voices is just heavenly. I am also a sucker for a violin. It is obvious that this band of actual and figurative brothers is ready to take on the world with this debut studio album. The album starts off on a high note for me with a Mumford and Son’s esc track, “Everest Isle”. Big fan of this song. Colored with choir boy vocals and beautiful melodies, if the whole album sounded like this track, I would not mind one bit. Black Streak is the next track and it is more of a rock sound complete with a shredding, rock violin solo. It is as splendid as it sounds. This song is fantastic and such a jam just surprising after hearing the first track. Alternative Press labeled Nemes as one of the Top 5 Unsigned Bands in the country and after listening to “Blue Rose” it is obvious as to why. This song just makes me want to dive into it and wrap up in the lyrics like a blanket. It paints such a pain stricken picture and by the time the violin comes in I am already in tears with my lighter in the sky. Perfecto. Nemes is definitely good at tugging the heart strings. ‘I can show you all how to sing it wrong/I’ve become a master of that song/it’s true wrongs the only way I do’ I have major heart eyes for “Wrong”, the sixth track on I Carry Your Heart. If I had to choose one song to listen to for new listeners to grasp the vibe of Nemes it would be this song. It is high-energy, fun and folksy yet rock at the same time. As a slightly OCD person, I like to put things into categories. I like to organize things by what they are and Nemes will not let me do that. I want to say they sound like Mumford and Sons but then they start sounding like a 80s power band in “Walk Me Down”. Then I want to say they remind me of Barenaked Ladies then they sound like early Dashboard Confessional. I Carry Your Heart is worth listening to a million times if only to figure out who they are as musicians and then to come to the conclusion that it is a truly well-made album. Even though it is all over the place, every place this Boston band goes is beautiful. Rating: 8/10 Release Date: October 28, 2014 Label: Unsigned Buy it on iTunes.

Want to hear it live? Nemes will be playing a CD release show Friday November 7th in Cambridge. More information here.

“Six Los Angeles Bands To Watch”

Looking for a new artist or two to add to your summer playlist? Well The Sound Alarm enlisted the help of Smoke Season to share their Six Los Angeles Bands To Watch. As an indie group who took the scene by storm last year, they know a thing or two about being a band to watch. With picks ranging from tracks to dance to to artists you must see live, there is something for nearly every music fan in this Six Picks!

The Janks We’re a fan of anyone who demonstrates the type of sheer virtuosity that these guys possess.  Their psychedelic vibes only add to our love.  Catch them live at our Echoplex Residency in LA on 8/18!

Evan MellowsThis guy’s voice makes you want to have sex while simultaneously crying about the perils of your existence all while grooving to some trip hop beat. Both Evan and us work with producers David Burris and Kyle Draper on our recordings so we got some familial love going on there.

Fever The Ghost Head out to Joshua Tree (or somewhere less touristy), take some mushrooms and listen to Fever The Ghost.  You’re welcome.

The Lucky LonelySome of our best (and most talented) friends right there.  These guys have to be experienced live to fully comprehend their skill level.  Watching them play made us practice our blues scales again.  Check them out at our Echoplex residency on 8/18.

Gavin Turek — Sometimes, you just gotta dance.  ‘Nuff said.  It only helps that this chic is as sweet as she is talented.

Phil Beaudreau — Soulful and carefully crafted melodies.  We’re big fans.

And don’t forget about Smoke Season. Not sure if they should make your playlist? Check out their new music video for “Bandlands” here.

“Six Things You Should Consider When

Picking A Band Name”

Nearly every band name has a story to go with it. For Western Education, it was how they described their sound during one of their first practices. They went back and forth on the name until deciding they liked the name for the acronym “WE” promotes their togetherness. So we asked Will Hunt, Western Education’s bass player, and connoisseur of band-names, chimes in on six important things you should consider when picking a band name. 

1)    Is it already someone’s band name? (It seems obvious, but this happens all the time)

2)    Consider your style of music: If your Owl City cover band is named Weedlord Hitler, then people will be confused. Unless irony is the point of your band.

3)    The “Noun the Noun” formula is played out; just avoid it.

4)     Don’t spell your band name with symbols, or with weird capitalization. If you must do this, don’t insist others abide by it when writing about you.

5)    Your band name should be easy to spell, or easy to understand.

6)    Don’t make your band name a sentence, it takes too long. Get to the point.

Six Picks With Ostrich Run

“Six Reasons Why Music and Charity Go Together”

Everyone has something they believe in, a cause to fight for or a dream to mutative them. For Ostrich Run they are working to use music to promote charity. So much so they have founded their own charity the Ostrich Farm Foundation. As they work to use music to promote charities we asked them to share their six reasons why they think music and charity go together.

1.   Changing the World

Music can make someone’s day, change someone’s mood, and even give people hope. Charity is a way for that hope to turn into love.

2.  Connecting People

Whether it’s at a concert, a nightclub, in a car, on the radio, or even in the shower music connects us all through the lyrics we sing along with and the melodies that get stuck on all of our heads. Charity solidifies that connection through action for each other.

3.  Reflecting Society

Listening to the music of a generation, you can understand what that generation believes in and what people’s lifestyles are. Charity reflects these same things by showing what people do with their beliefs and how they live to prove what they believe.

4.  Revolving Around Emotion

Emotions are the driving force behind music creation. That is the reason why music is so relatable. Emotions also compel people to donate their time and or money and give people the tools to care for each other.

5.  Bringing Happiness

When you create music your creating it to entertain people. To bring enjoyment and happiness to people’s lives. We feel the same goes with charities. When you go out there and help people your trying to make a difference. You’re trying to change someone’s life and eventually bring happiness to his or her life.

6.  Both Are Timeless

It doesn’t matter what era a song was made, if it is a great song, it will be always be remembered. This is because a great song will never stop affecting the lives of others. The work done by Charity ripples into the future and will continue to positively impact the world.
