Afrobeta is a boy/girl duo (Cuci Amador and Tony Smurphio) from Miami, Florida. Their music includes laser beam noises and as far as I am concerned you can never go wrong with laser beams. Here’s “Two Different Worlds” off their EP, Do You Party?:
I am looking forward to the Drums‘ upcoming Seattle show – they come to Neumos on October 4th with Surfer Blood. The Drums are another awesome band from Brooklyn, New York and their “Down By the Water” is one of my current faves.
Australia’s Darren Hanlon is coming to the States in September (no Seattle show yet) but he’s supporting Billy Bragg and the Hold Steady on several dates. Hanlon’s song, “All These Things” sneaked up on me.
