Typing up all the show notes this week for once because I love you, fam. 

YES! I'M ACTUALLY DOING SHOW NOTES FOR THIS WEEK! #sorrynotsorry but like I said in this week's episode I've been dealing with a bit of blogger burnout and even though doing the show is very therapeutic for me when you see how thorough I intend to be moving forward you will understand why I put this off for as long as I could. Again, I really appreciate those of you who listen and never get the promised show notes. NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES! Just quality #content in addition to a bunch of other new things in the works right now. 

Hope you enjoyed this weeks show! Feel free to drop a comment here or hit me up on Twitter. I'd love to hear what you thought of this week's picks!

Until next week!

[News] Studio Killers Launch Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Live Shows

In their current state, electro-pop outfit Studio Killers have been confined to computer screens all over the world. If the group has it their way, however, that won't be the case for very long. In addition to the announcement that they would perform live at two festivals in Finland, a few days ago the trio launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to raise £50,000. At the time of this post, the campaign currently sits at close to £15,000, with 9 days left to reach their goal. While it seems like a hefty chunk of change to ask of their fans before they even perform their first live show ever, the band hopes to cover the costs of bringing their characters to life using state of the art technology courtesy of design company Immersive Ltd.. The firm's previous clients include: Jason Mraz, Bon Jovi, Knife Party, deadmau5, and many more. Additionally, per the band's Kickstarter page, they hope to use the funds to bring their live show various international locations as well. 

I for one hope they reach their goal. In fact, I've kicked in £60 because I feel like their live show would be something worth bringing to the masses. Their latest single, "Grand Finale" hints at a promising follow up to their self-titled debut, which makes me want to see the group through until they're standing on their own two pixels performing wherever they're loved the most. In terms of incentives, you get a little love regarless of how much/little you give. I'm personally very excited that my £60 will get me a limited print from Cherry since I've yet to experience her art in person (their gallery installation was in Helsinki). 

If you need further convincing, enjoy a snippet of "Grand Finale" below. 

[Watch] Studio Killers - "Eros And Apollo"

Thanks to a tip from a Twitter follower I am now sitting skeptically skimming the internet trying to get to the bottom of what is going on with this "band". Other than having perfectly SEO'd properties with the same bio everywhere on the band and a random plethora of fans clinging to one officially released track and tidbits of others, there isn't a whole lot we can learn about virtual band Studio Killers. The "band" are comprised of three characters: Cherry (the lead singer), Goldie Foxx and Dyna Mink, who rock turntables and keytars. Almost a year ago they released a song called "Ode To The Bouncer" which was catchy enough to top Dutch Top 40 charts. Now just this past Friday they unveiled a new song and video called "Eros And Apollo" which you can check out above for yourselves. They're also apparently going to be putting out an album pretty soon, which there are no other details than a teaser video of a song being mixed on their YouTube channel.

I'm all for bright colors and fun dance music and the animations of the characters are kind of fun, but something just doesn't sit right with me on this. I'm not really sure why. I know I'm already sick of hearing that they're "like The Gorillaz but dancey" from the minimal bit of research I've done so far on the band. I guess for now I'll play along and see what else they have up their sleeves. I think the lack of information about the actual people involved behind the music is what's getting to me the most because I don't like feeling as though I'm about to be tricked. Maybe I'm just overthinking this? Thoughts?
