Catching Ghosts with Juviley.

Imagine a pitch black screen.Seconds later, a electronic music voyage kicks in.Glimpses of avatar ghosts start popping up in the window. According to Juviley,there are no rules. A transplant from Israel, he is the brainchild behind a conglomeration of his album Our Choices Rhyme  camouflaged inside of a video game. Juviley’s voltage of futuristic beats, and bending synths combine as a project that takes the listener in a progressive labyrinth of  winning the game, in order to win a free download of the album. Bravo!

Check out Juviley’s video “My Blood”  below

Edward Rogers Plays NYC 11/17. Prepare to Be Wowed!

Modern Mystery favorite, Edward Rogers, is ready to show New York what he has to offer. Just releasing his fourth solo album this week, Porcelain (Zip Records), Rogers is taking the stage at the new Cutting Room in Manhattan, this coming Thursday, November 17th at 8pm. For those of you who have never heard of Edward Rogers before, get on the bandwagon already! A little bit of Badly Drawn Boy, a touch of Jarvis Cocker, and a big splash of Rogers, create a song that is sonically distinctive.

Edwards has also released a stunning video for the song “The Biba Crowd.” You can see the hip black and white, vintage video for the track here:

The New York-based Rogers, who spent the first twelve years of his life in Birmingham, England, says “I’m motivated by the urge to make music and express myself, rather than by some abstract idea of being some kind of pop star, so I feel like I’m making music for the right reasons.”

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Get Dirty In New Video, “Critical Drain”

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin can write a good song but they can also pull a good stunt, as shown in their latest video “Critical Drain,” which just premiered on the MTVu website. The video, directed by the band’s friend Brook Linder and filmed in the band’s hometown, features some standard performance shots but mostly shows the band members dragged around on the ground. They even get splashed with paint in the process! Although they did their own stunts and didn’t get hurt, I wouldn’t recommend trying this at home. Watch the video HERE.

And because the band just released, via Polyvinyl, the album Tape Club, which compiles all the best of what they’ve discarded over the years, they’re also touring! Are they coming near you? Check it out below.

Ryan Adams To Release New Album On October 10th

Ryan Adams will release a new album next month! Ashes and Fire, which will be released through Adams’ own PAX-AM label and Sony’s Columbia Records, will be available for you eager fans to purchase on Monday 10th October. This will be the first solo album he puts out through his own company and in that spirit, it seems he chose his team to reflect that homey feeling. The album was recorded in LA at Sunset Sound in Hollywood and produced by Glyn Johns. While the producer is known for his work with the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Clash, The Who and The Rolling Stones (not too shabby), he also happens to be the father of Ethan Johns, who produced Ryan Adams’ albums Heartbreaker, Gold and 29. Other notable people who appear on the album are Norah Jones and the organist from Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Benmont Tench. In other exciting news, a tour in preparation so stay tuned!
