Techno Squirrels – Love Comes First

LA based band with a horrible name, but beautiful music.   Seriously,  “Techno Squirrels”… I keep picturing a little kid with glow sticks and a Casio  churning out techno from his bedroom.   Here’s  hoping they change their name….

Remind me alot of telepopmusik

Shapeshifter – Electric Dream

We (the misses and I) caught Shapeshifter at DiscoCult at The Sugar Factory in Amsterdam Friday October 12, 2007.   This was a great performance and I’m sure the “special” smoke in the air didn’t hurt either.   The crowd was great, and   Shapeshifter brought it, and found ways to keep taking it up a notch through the set.   This was an explosive and vibrant show and one of the best I’ve seen in years.    

Here’s a track they played that night called “Electric Dream”.

PS. Be sure not to confuse Shapeshifter (drum n bass)  with The Shapeshifters  (House)… and yes, I did confuse the two hence my warning.

PSS. More post plus videos from this event coming soon including the smashing DJ from Germany who followed the shapeshifter set, Lars Moston — btw, this guy killed it…

This male / female duo produce sunshine fun drenched indie rock/electronic/pop music that is quite catchy.  

Not the greatest quality video, but her it is none the less:
