Travel sounds

As i travel, one of the first things i check out are the local radio stations. its more of a jealousy thing. (Is this town cooler than mine) Jump into the rental and start scanning stations.
Stop the scanning when I hear The Cure. I know. you'd think i heard "friday im in love" or "pictures of you". What i heard was "bloodflowers" which i haven't heard in a long time.

What i found was FM 94.9

From the airport to the hotel i heard:
Zero 7
Team Sleep
The Big Pink
Pinback
NIN
Beck
The Hold Steady
Not bad San Diego. you rock a decent radio station.

(on a side note, AndroBlogger app sucks)

Voidmate releasing long awaited CD

 After several years of playing shows, producing new sounds and great covers of Morrisey classics, Voidmate is finally releasing it's full length CD next month.

The most popular track "Erasing Machine" was featured on Poison Tree Records' compilation sampler: "Open Your Mind to the Music Vol I" back in 2006.

With heavy keyboard composition and mastered beats, the sound of Voidmate is fluid. Categorized as New Wave, Electro Pop. Categories aside, they are definitely worth a listen.

The CD release party is on August 27 at 9:00pm at The Mink/Backroom. Cover is free for 21+ and $5 for under 21.
