Bliss Bomb

Bliss Bomb Album Art for Fever Dream
Whomever decided to deliver the file for this band to the Audio Gumshoe offices must have known that this would be a case that we couldn’t refuse. Bliss Bomb is a smoldering female-fronted ten-piece band playing a dynamic blend of original pop, funk and jazz, with a sexy-sophisticated vibe that harkens back to old Hollywood glamour and smoky film noir. What’s not to like?

And just when we thought that we’d figured them out — they switched direction on us. It wasn’t the classic double-back maneuver, though. They went into outer-space! You’ll want to take your gravity boots — and maybe your elephant gun — if you want to catch up to this group. They’ll have you so distracted with gravity-resistant dancing and full-on jungle boogie that you’ll forget what it was that you meant to do.

Bliss Bomb released an album called “Fever Dream.” It is available at CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon. Here’s some surveillance video that we found.

Somebody else seems to be watching them, too. You’ll want to play the show audio to hear full cuts of these songs, though.

I leave it to you to follow the links in this page to find out more about this band. Watch your back, though. They seem to know how to get into trouble.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up Bliss Bomb on your social profiles. They’ll love knowing that you’re talking about them.

Monks of Mellonwah – AG173

Monks of Mellonwah

Monks of Mellonwah Ghost Stories EP album art

How this band showed up in the Audio Gumshoe file stack is a mystery to me. They are well known the world over. They have won awards (‘International Rock Artist Of The Year’ at the Los Angeles Music Awards, 2012 and ‘Best Indie RockBand’ at the Artists In Music Awards, 2012) and they have appeared on broadcasts, web sites and podcasts for quite some time.

Something must be hiding in this band’s existence that has caused to us to miss something significant. Is it that they recently worked with producer Keith Olson (Fleetwood Mac, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Heart, Joe Walsh)? No, that’s readily available information. Are we missing something about their diligence in working toward worldwide acceptance? No, they’ve recently signed with A&R Worldwide (Coldplay, Muse, Adele). That information is readily available, as well.

I leave it to you to follow the links in this page to find out more about this band. After listening, I believe that you’ll find that they create good, solid, well-produced music that will leave you to wanting to hear more. Be cautious, though. They may have a dark side. The song titles played in today’s episode hint to something a bit more sinister.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up the Monks of Mellonwah on your social profiles. They’ll love knowing that you’re talking about them.

The Non-Domestiks – AG171

The Non-Domestiks

non-domestiks file image

When the client doesn’t seem to know what sound they are looking to find, it makes this gumshoe’s work a bit more difficult. I had been asked to locate a band that sounded like “early 70’s ballad pop in the likes of the Carpenters and Elton John, combined with a hint of art and prog rock with classical influences similar to the Moody Blues and Renaissance, then throw in some Lou Reed, Bowie and Rundgren for a little edge.” Yeah, sure.

So, with a little digging I was able to locate a duo in the Philadelphia area called The Non-Domestiks. Apparently, these two women don’t spend much time in the home or in the office. They are busy playing multiple instruments and recording tracks for their albums. Both Rosalba Gallo and Katrina Wylie have the ability to play keyboard, guitar and bass. It seems that Rosalba focuses on playing lead guitar, as well as bass and drums. Her musical partner, Katrina, plays keys and woodwinds, not limited to saxophone, clarinet and bassoon.

They’ve recently released an album called September Monday. In my research, I discovered that they named it this way after reading a news article about the frequency of suicides on Mondays in the month of September. Youch. I’d be cautious about the lyrics in these tracks, just to be safe.

I have to admit, I dig the sound these two are dishing out. Be sure to talk about them on your social media profiles, such as Twitter and Facebook. It will raise their egos and also let them know that you’ve been to the office to dig through my files. You never know what you’ll find in that heap o’ manila folders on my desk.

Songs Played

– Is There No One
– How Does It Feel

The High Fidelics – Surf Instrumental – AG170

The High Fidelics

The High Fidelics promo image

Be careful with that submission envelope. You might want to grab a towel. Today’s artist is “retro fresh” surf instrumental music by Birmingham, Alabama’s very own The High Fidelics.

According to the info tracked down at their ReverbNation profile:

This “retro fresh” all instrumental band has started the chattering-class chattering and the toe-tappers’ toes tapping. When you’re at a High Fidelics show, you’ll feel like you’re basking on a California beach, hanging out in a no-wave NYC club, and eating grits at a Memphis soul club — all at the same time. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, this group of men-of-a-certain-age burst into the public eye in October 2010 and has not slowed down yet.

Be sure to talk about the band on your social media profiles, such as Twitter and Facebook. It will raise their egos and also let them know that you’ve been to the office to dig through my files. You never know what your’e going to find in that ragged stack on my desk.

Songs Played

Starfall – Shards

Starfall band image

We’ve found some rock and metal in the latest envelope slid under the door at the Audio Gumshoe offices. It made the package a bit heavy. And that’s good; there have been some lightweight submissions recently. This band, Starfall, has changed their identity, so it’s good that you found them. They used to be called Blood of the Fallen. It is known that they frequent the Mississauga and Toronto, Ontario communities. Not only have the changed their name, they have released a new tune, Shards, with a slightly different sound. I gave you some leads to find out more about them in the info below.

Oh, by the way, if you find any more information about this band, be sure to share it on your Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or other social media accounts. It will help them be found by others much more quickly.

Songs Played

– Under the Sky
– Underneath
– Shards
