On October 7th Bishop Allen will be stopping by Bootleg HiFi in support of their new record, Lights Out, a music compilation that has been five years in the making. To promote the new album, the band enlisted the help of their friends to create a series of curious videos to go along with each track. And what exactly did these friends have to do? Oh, you know, just hula hoop in slow motion!

Jimmy Eat World

How familiar does this sound: “When I was in high school I was really into Jimmy Eat World”? I used to be a little embarrassed about my continued love for JEW (as a Jew, I love using the acronym JEW), but I eventually came to realize that it takes a certain kind of devotion as a fan to keep listening to a group or songwriter for a career’s worth of offerings. I am now proud to admit it. Jimmy Eat World is one of my favorite bands.

There’s an alternative though. Bubbling up through the cracks over the past year or so is a flood of artists who skirt the rave-inspired tendencies of mainstream EDM for a more emotional approach. Along with Odesza and Flume, Slow Magic has gone that route. These guys are masters at crafting tracks that are emotional but also fun to dance to (or at least rhythmically sway side-to-side to).
