Information Society’s OddFellows!

InfoSoc Band

Long time fans of the podcast might remember where I interviewed Paul Robb of Information Society back in 2014 to promote their album “_hello world” that was released in September 2014. It was great to talk to him back then, and always great to see that the band is still around and producing new music. Since that interview they’ve put out 1 other new album and 2 remix albums and now have another new album coming out later 2021!! The album is called “OddFellows” and features music which they released when they re-partnered with their original label, Tommy Boy. Those 4 singles are added to 7 additional tracks to make up the album.

InfoSoc Oddfellows

One of the cool things about this new album, InfoSoc are breaking audio ground — this will be the very first complete album to be released with a version rendered in THXⓇ Spatial Audio (a technology that’s used in gaming platforms to provide audio that sounds like it’s coming from ‘outside your head’). What this means to the listener is that the spatial audio technology recreates different “channels” of sound that sound as if you’re in a room surrounded by the musicians… So you might hear the drummer sound like he’s directly behind you, a keyboard in the right ear, bass in the left ear and the vocalist moves around freely. It puts you right in the middle of the performance and it’s best experienced on headphones. It’s a very cool technology and InfoSoc is just the band to take advantage of it! OF course, if you’re not interested in the Spatial Audio sound, you can get a normal stereo sound version – but why would you??

I’m looking forward to the album being released, and maybe i’ll even have a full review soon – and who knows, maybe – just maybe – another interview with Paul, and maybe other members of InfoSoc?? I know i’d like to have him (and other members of InfoSoc) on the show again! Stay Tuned! In the meantime, check out 2 of the singles (Nothing Prevails and Bennington) from the Tommy Boy re-partnering that will be on the new album when it’s released on August 6, 2021!

Thanks to ReyBee for the details on the new album – stay tuned for more!!

8mm Returns with Heart-Shaped Hell!!

8mm - Heart-Shaped Hell

2019 marks the return of the amazing duo of 8mm (http://8mmlovesyou.com) !! On Feb 22, 2019 they released their new EP, Heart Shaped Hell, and it’s a much welcomed return to your ears! Founded by Grammy-nominated producer/mixer multi-instrumentalist Sean Beavan (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, A Perfect Circle) and his multi-talented wife, Juliette Beavan, 8mm, were one of the first bands to embrace DIY and strategic licensing. They quickly became championed by luminaries such as Nic Harcourt, Geoff Boucher, Kevin Bronson, Jason Pettigrew and Antiquiet. One of the most licensed bands in the industry (“Underworld: Awakening”, “Dirty Little Liars”, “Mistresses”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Nip/Tuck”, “Nikita”, “One Tree Hill”, “Shark”, “Cold Case”, “Moonlight”, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”, etc.), their powerful live performances and intriguing videos have earned them an ever-increasing hardcore following.

The new EP, Heart-Shaped Hell, starts out with the sultry voice of Juliette on the song, ‘Self-Inflicted Heartache’ – where the song gives the listener a brilliant reminder of what made them fall in love with 8mm in previous albums. After the opening sequence, Juliette shows us the power of her voice in the chorus, exclaiming “Hey! Hey! This is how I break… It’s my self-inflicted heartache!” The song goes on, hypnotizing the listener and finishing with a great guitar solo by Sean.

The first single, Supercrush, is next on the EP and this is by far my favorite song. Starts off with a catchy electro-groove and keeps giving the listener a strong bass thump underneath Juliette’s singing with the rhythm. Sean also brings an electronic infused guitar to this tune, making it easily the best song off the EP. The title track follows, bringing you back to the sultriness of Juliette, and encouraging you to swing along with the song and feel that really no-one can break the spell of her amazing voice. That continues into the next tune, Bring it on, but this song is a little different – we finally hear Sean singing along with his wife, making it a beautiful duet. I think Bring It On is a contender for the 2nd best track on the EP, having both their voices in the song makes it a great song.

The final 2 tracks are the same song, Move with Me, but one has a spacey 2 minute and 20 second intro that could easily be a track to welcome 8mm on stage when they perform it live. I actually could see this song being used in a tv show, possibly a sci-fi show. Juliette encourages the listener to “just move with me” and by the time you hear her sirens song in the middle, you will be moving along with her – and also agreeing that you won’t let her go. This song leaves you wishing there were more than 5 (6) songs and it was a full length album.

I am very happy to see that 8mm is back and this EP is a great way to bring them back! I only hope that they take this (and their older material) back on the road, as they are amazing to see in a live environment. Those long time fans of 8mm should definitely listen to this EP, and if you’re a fan of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack, Metric, Poe, or similar – you should give this a listen as well. You may just become one of the hardcore fans that have been following 8mm since 2006!

Blue October – Royal Oak Music Theater, October 11th, 2018

Passion. That is what you feel from a Blue October concert. The passion of the lead singer Justin Furstenfeld, the passion of the band, and the passion of the audience. The show at Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit was incredible, Blue October started the night with their latest single, Daylight and went into some of their older hits: The Chills and I Want it.

The audience fed off the energy from the band, and gave it right back to them. Many of those in the audience sung along, some just as loud as the band played! Much of the passion felt from Justin was also in the words he spoke between songs, sometimes preaching how you should be yourself and not take anything from anyone before “I’ll Do Me, You Do you” from their latest album, and other times telling the story of how his home life is before the song “Home” from the album Home.

It’s been said that going to a Blue October show is like going to church, and I couldn’t agree more. Justin and the band provided a brilliant soundtrack for the evening, and left fans wanting more. They ended the set with “Leave it in the dressing room”, where they took a quick break and returned for a few more songs. The encore started with an awesome acoustic version of “Hate Me”, which is where Justin’s voice really shines through with passion. The rest of the band returned to finish out the encore, which ended with the title song off their latest album, “I Hope You’re Happy”.

This was my very first Blue October live show, and I will say that I will definitely see them again. Their latest album (I Hope you’re Happy) is certainly worth checking out, and also check out the short film, Am I Happy, loosely based on the song “I Hope You’re Happy”
