Book of Love
Book of Love
Because, in the 1980's, even Goth girls liked to smile at the discotheque, there existed a band called Book Of Love. Hearing a Book Of Love song like "I Touch Roses" or "Boy" after the blood-curdling "Stigmata" or the macabre "Bela Lugosi's Dead" was like being smacked in the head with a sun beam. Music so fearlessly and effortlessly melodic and optimistic rarely ever parted the dancefloor, but somehow a synth band that originated in Philadelphia via New York did so, repeatedly. Book Of Love were formed in the early eighties by art students Ted and Susan Ottaviano. They are neither related nor married. Susan was the lead singer and her sweet yet expressionless vocals became the band's signature. Ted handled songwriting, programming and guitars. This Manhattan-based ambisexual quartet specialized in pure, love it or loathe it dance pop- a near mathematical melange of art house beats, smiley-faced hooks, Donovan-style lyricism, and female voices so droll they make Nico sound like Judy Collins. They have gone on to influence everyone from the Polyphonic Spree and Adult. 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of their debut album.
Fever High
Fever High
FEVER HIGH is a Brooklyn-based duo comprised of singer/instrumentalists Anna Nordeen and Reni Lane. Their sound is retro-tinged, danceable indie pop, with infectious chorus, lush harmonies, and an irresistible blend of analog synths and organic textures. "Tantalized" is the first single from their debut EP, recorded in New York City this year with collaborator/producer Adam Schlesinger.
Ejector
Ejector
Formed in 2008, the original line up consisted of Ben Holder and Ricky Terry. Quickly, they made a name for themselves and became a San Francisco favorite playing clubs, street festivals, and fund raising events. While working on their 2010 album On The Pages they enlisted the help of Dr. Scott. His prod...uction skills and ear for dance music was a perfect fit. It wasn't long until Scott was asked to join them on stage and writing new material commenced. The two became three.

Combining strengths, a new sound was completely evident at their first show together and audiences knew something big had happened. Drawing from a broad range of influences, prior industry knowledge, their love of film scores, sci-fi, and theatre, these elements get wrapped up with a dance groove while not forgetting to add a dash of humor, and sass. They are no strangers to dancing between the light and the dark, deftly transitioning between gentle passion and raw aggression and tackling themes from the playful now to the pain of long lost love. Flash in the pan pop act they are not.

Eject your preconceived notions. Eject your limitations. Put on something fun and join the mayhem.
