Lelia Broussard + Rolling Stone

The amazingly talented Lelia Broussard has been nominated for Rolling Stone's "Do You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star?" cover contest. Sixteen unsigned artists are in the running, half of which will be eliminated by March 16th, and the final two will compete onstage at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. The winner will be the first unsigned act to ever appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and will also receive a recording contract with Atlantic Records. 

Her fourth independently released album, "Masquerade" has received ranting reviews. The fun, eclectic song "Satellite" is about a lovesick robot stuck in L.A., looking towards the sky, and "Hipster Bitch" is about that hot artsy Williamsburg or Echo Park girl you love to hate. Not only can Broussard hit a note, but her songwriting is witty and unapologetic. She's offering a free download of the previously unreleased acoustic heartbreaker "Alone On A Train". Clearly having spent a good amount of time in both New York and Los Angeles, the 21 year old singer/songwriter has a lot to say, and it would be beneficial to listen.

Poor But Sexy's Debut Out Today!


DC's funky "yacht-rock"ers Poor But Sexy have finally unleashed their debut onto the world today. Let's Move In Together is packed with hooky jams that they've described, "sounds like R. Kelly traveled back in time to become Steely Dan's front man circa 1977." What? This we've got to hear.

And PBS is made up of very familiar faces amongst the DC post-punk scene. Like Singer David Brown and bassist Brandon Kalber who met playing in the punk-funk band Travis Morrison Hellfighters.  Guitarist/Producer Jason Caddell rocked out with the Dismemberment Plan for 10 years. Keyboardist David Durst also composes punk-chamber music for Anti-Social Music. And drummer Bruce Falconer moonlights as an investigative journalist.

Check out the studio-filmed video for "Cherry Delicious" below and check them out live at the Black Cat on Feb. 27.


The Two Funerals Release Teaser From Their Upcoming EP

 The Two Funerals

Richmond all-girl punk trio, The Two Funerals, are back in business! It's been a few years since their last release, Tell Yr Story, but the band has finally posted the title track from their upcoming EP, Boy's Club (Rorschach Records), available for free download. This record seems to pick up where the last 7" left off, forging highly aggressive street-punk with moody, post-rock interludes and lyrics that drive home The Two Funerals' commitment to feminist rights in the 21st century, especially within the music industry and band scenes. "Boys Club" (the song) ends with the line, "Are we a band yet?", a confrontational statement that demands artistic recognition. In the wake of the late Sleater-Kinney there is still plenty of room for a strong feminist voice in the punk scene and The Two Funerals have plenty of talent and passion to grow into it.

Check out their newest release here.

I recently talked about the future of collaboration between independent artists and the fashion industry in my interview with U.S. Royalty. Could this be a whole new path to musical recognition in the wake of the crumbling 20th century music industry? You should leave your thoughts in the comments. Don't be shy!

If you can't catch Danni at one of the Free People shows, you should still keep an eye out for the upcoming release of a video for her song, "On My Way." The teaser is below.
