"The Thrush" and "Dirty Moves" available NOW at

Click Here!

Chandeliers – The Thrush (CD/LP)
"Avant rock and electronics from Chicago's Chandeliers -- blending a world of influences into a unique vibe all their own! The sounds are playful without being cute and innovative without getting all cerebral on you -- a balance that pushes the group above and beyond many of their peers. A mix of live and electronic instrumentation, with nods to the Krautrock forbears, avant dancefloor sounds from the 80s to today and global psychedelia of many kinds."

Chandeliers – Dirty Moves (CD/LP)
"Dirty Moves and kaleidoscopic sounds from Chicago's Chandeliers -- who fearlessly blend influences that range from the nascent electronic experiments of the 60s & 70s, 70s art rock & Krautrock, raw Congotronics-esque percussion, laser guided 80s electro and more into an insistent and addictive sound all their own! The material was culled from group recordings made fom 2004-2008 and has a nicely raw, kind of instinctive feel to the movements. Very cool stuff!"

A good look 1983

B.B.& Q. (Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens) Band - Six Millions Times (1983)
"Six Million Times I've called and you weren't home." "Where were you
six million times?" -- classic.

There is undeniable PRINCE influence / vibe on this.. Some vocorder electro type jams too. Lots of guitar solos on the jams, some filler reggae and ballads,
but the title cut and cover make it all worth it.

Attitude - Pump the Nation (1983)

Electro, Boogie, Funk, Disco, this one has it all, if you know the work of
the SYSTEM, you'll dig this, cause they produced the entire album. Its
basically those dudes with different singers. Again, couple of duds on the
B side, but the A side is great. Apparently, the title track was a Paradise Garage anthem in its day, its pretty goofy, but it grew on me.

The first in our series of Similar Looking (and good) Album Covers.
