I recently took footage from a Golden Gardens show I filmed and made a new music video for them. It is from an older album of theirs, Between the Siren and the Amulet. Golden Gardens is a Seattle based dreampop band that mixes velvety ambiance, mysterious melodies and haunting voices to calm your senses.

Here is the video for the song “The Golden Dawn”.

Teen Men is a brand new band out of Delaware comprised of Joe Hobson and Nick Krill from Spinto Band and visual artists Catharine Maloney, a photographer, and Albert Birney, a filmmaker (who has made videos for Spinto Band, Generationals and Ra Ra Riot). They have a great vibrant sound blending electronic samples and ambient accents. Seeing the band live is where it gets more interesting because they use a synchronized video projection that is interactive. If you get the chance to see this band live please do so. It will blow your mind. In the mean time keep up to date with Teen Men as they are working on their first album. Here is the video for “Hiding Records (So Dangerous)” featuring Sylvio.

Brian Langan is a musician from Philadelphia, PA. He is more than a musician, he is witty, a true artist and a sex bomb! I was able to catch is fun, witty side in this interview. I highly recommend checking out his numerous projects and see how artistic and sexy he is. Brian really is an amazing musician and has a fabulous voice. HA!

Mandy: For our readers pleasure who is Brian Langan in a nutshell?

Brian: It’s very tight and dark, it gets hot, real friggin hot!

Mandy: You are in a bunch of different music projects, can you describe them?

Brian: I play fuzzed out loud bass and do some singing about cosmic shit in Needle Points which an experiment in street level boogie.

I play ripper guitar and sing in Sweatheart which a dress up band that kinda sounds like 80’s party movie rock.

I play guitar and LEAD SING in Langor which i guess you’d call my solo project. 60’s fantasy pop/rock type stuff.

I also play dumb guitar and sing in Kock107 a classic rock band in the vein of Foreigner, Bryan Adams and Thin Lizzy. We’re a very sexy band!
