This indie-electro duo like their song, is so fine. Telepathe consists of Melissa Livaudais and Busy Gangnes, two girls that hale from Bushwick Brooklyn. The band started three years ago after the break up of Wikkid, a math/prog rock band. Their new record Dance Mother, which is out on IAMSOUND Records is extremely danceable, with tribal beats and layered synths. We are very excited for them to be in Tom Tom. For now, enjoy this video.

A truly inspiring drummer and good friend LaFrae Sci has just launched a new blog which will track her adventures as a professional drummer working in New York and beyond. Read below for a quote from the drummer herself on what to expect:
” I am truly honored to be about to leave on a 5 week tour through
Romania, Albania, Monte Negro, and Bosnia sponsored by the state
department and Rhythm Road (formerly known as the Jazz Ambassador
program) with the Eli Yamin Blues group. I will be performing about 30 concerts and 20 or
so clinic/workshops in communities and conservatories alike. I will be updating (the blog)
with photos, video and stories from the road daily (internet
I invite you to subscribe to my Blog o’ Love and join me on my
journey. I have posted a few posts already including one that
explains the Jazz Ambassador to Rhythm Road tour in greater detail.

I’m digging this band Liechtenstein right now. They just got signed to Slumberland Records which is the same label that Crystal Stilts and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart are on, as well as a slew of girl-fronted bands in the 90s. They are an indie pop band from Sweden (of course) and the have…a female drummer! One can see the influence of bands like The Slits, Shop Assistants, and Talulah Gosh. Interview with Elin the drummer coming soon!
