Introducing… Go Fiasco

There’s no question that Liverpool quartet Go Fiasco have a definite Jim Morrison and The Doors thing going on. It’s not just in their sound, which is richly ornate, moody, intense and powerful, or the lusciously rich baritone of singer/guitarist Daniel Duggan. It’s also apparent in their considerable musical prowess and overall vibe. This is huge, absorbing, all-enveloping music that you (very happily) drown in.

Duggan is joined by guitarist Jamie Roberts, bassist Ben Murphy, drummer Liam Gardner and synth player Conor Jones. All share in vocal duties, but without question, it’s Duggan’s bluesy and sometimes barking howl that creates a special air of mystery which is heightened by their stunning majestic soundscape. It’s extremely difficult to believe that this extremely seasoned-sounding ensemble only released their debut single, “Heaven,” about a year ago, but that seems to be the case. “Meet My Mystery” followed, with the most recent back in July, “Master Crime.” We’ll definitely be paying close attention to see what these boys do next!

Nightmare Air Return to Boston (well, Somerville actually)

Ah, the ups and downs and overall strangeness of being in an indie rock band. One day, it’s supporting The Airborne Toxic Event in big sold out love fests and the next, it’s a hard slog middle slot at the living room-sized P.A.’s Lounge in that hipster enclave, Somerville. Actually, I think P.A.’s knocked a wall down recently, so make that a large living room. If you need to have your face melted with a densely layered psychedelic-tinged full-on noise party, Nightmare Air can most definitely help you out.


They released their debut album back in March, and have some East Coast and West Coast dates planned for this month. Go see them. At P.A.’s they’re listed as second band up after Joe Turner & the Seven Levels. Tennis System is headlining. For now, turn up the volume on the video below, and imagine what this will sound like in a small room. Yowsa.

5/8 – PA’s Lounge – Somerville, MA – w/ Tennis System (L.A.), Heaven (NYC) and Joe Turner & the Seven Levels
5/9 – Shea Stadium – New York, NY – w/ Tennis System and Dead Leaf Echo
5/10 – Union Pool – New York, NY – w/ Tennis System and Heaven
5/13 – The Barbary – Philadelphia, PA – w/ Tennis System

5/20 – The Echo – Los Angeles, CA – w/ Torches (residency)
5/30 – Silverlake Lounge – Los Angeles, CA – w/ United Ghosts (residency)

Depeche Mode’s “Heaven” – first single from their upcoming album

Depeche Mode will soon be releasing album #13, their first since Sounds of the Universe in 2009. The new album will be called Delta Machine, due out March 26 on Columbia. For now, the lead single “Heaven” was premiered on KROQ. The video for this track will be released on February 1, ahead of the single’s release on February 5th. So far, there’s just a slew of European tour dates for May through July. Listening to the delicious slow burn of this new song, I can tell you I’m really looking forward to hearing the album.
