Rene Lopez will be proving that February is the month of love with appearances at Nublu every Thursday during the month. He will additionally be appearing for a performance at Arlene’s Grocery on February 28th. Rene will be playing old favorites as well as tracks off his latest album, ELS (released this past summer by Nat Geo Music). ELS stands for Electric Latin Soul, a term Rene has coined for the new style of music he has developed. A mixture of Latin soul and Boogaloo with elements of rock, hip-hop, and R&B — Rene’s sound is one that is distinctly Nuyorican. ELS features co-producers Mario Caldato Jr., a.k.a. Mario C (BeastieBoys, Jack Johnson, Bebel Gilberto) and Jason Lader (Julian Casablancas, JennyLewis), as well as special guests Joey Altruda, and Money Mark (John Butler Trio). The album as a whole is a nod to Rene’s Latin roots, with an eye on modern electronic music and good ol’ rock-and-roll.

Visc. is 18 year old musician Dylan Fellows, from Athens, Georgia. On Apollo, Dylan sounds like a male version Chrissie Hynde (lead singer of the Pretenders) being backed by an Erasure track. So in other words, a dream match-up come true. Really looking forward to hearing more of this electronic dream match up!
Miike Snow just premired there latest single from their new forthcoming album. A triumphant sounding track with the always velvet sounding Andrew Wyatt on vocals. Been looking forward to new Miike Snow after devouring their first release, which is still in heavy rotation on my iPod.
