Saint Motel – “Cold Cold Man”

Music for… people who enjoy fun. I know I can’t frown with a Saint Motel song on. Its a good times dance party in my chair right now. But we all know the guy that we wont play this song for cause he wont like it cause he doesn’t like anything. What a grump. Why are we friends with him anyway? Saint Motel are better friends. Lets hang with them more often

Location: Los Angeles.

Future: Our eVites. Plus a new EP coming soon.

♫ Saint Motel – Puzzle Pieces

Any regular reader of The Burning Ear should know Saint Motel and their infectious jams, stellar music videos, and ass kicking live shows. The Burning Ear couldn’t be prouder to be presenting 2 out of those 3 things next weekend at the beautiful El Rey theater in Los Angeles. Saint Motel releasing their debut album Voyeur by playing with fellow TBE alums Chasing Kings and Princeton so it’s sure to be a damn good show. Grab your tickets on the cheap here (you can even get the album+ticket bundle for a steal!) and then come for a night of rollicking fun! Also head here to grab their new single “Benny Goodman” for free!

[LIVE/MP3] Saint Motel @ The Hudson Block Party, May 20 + “1997”

Saint Motel Live

well, it’s tough to love another, and it’s hard to find a friend friend, somebody else who has no others, somebody else who understands

♫ Saint Motel – 1997

Saint Motel play "1997" live

For lots of thought on Saint Motel go here. For lots of rock from Saint Motel go back to yesterday where they rocked The Hudson Block Party, winning over innocent bystanders and confirming that these guys have way more up their sleeves then a few singles. These 4 LA dudes are made of equal parts serious rock and equal parts goofball and it’s what makes their music so charming. Nobody is taking themselves too seriously and that acts as an silent invitation for wallflowers to groove. The twilight of an outdoor mini-festival is one thing but I’m now really looking forward to catching these guys in a more intimate and sweaty locale. How about The El Rey on July 14th? Good, see you there.

Brandon’s TBE Digest 31 – [12.11.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

TBE-Digest-31

Artwork by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

This may be the last Digest I do like this. I’d really like to take the time to give the best of these tracks the solo post they deserve. If anyone feels strongly about this news leave it in the comments below. Otherwise rock on Wayne and rock on Garth.

For more jams by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

 Saint Motel – At Least I Have Nothing / New Saint Motel jam. I like. Lets get a full album out, guys!

♫ Arrange – Sun Showers / New Arrange track is as blissfully beautiful as you would expect but I still prefer hearing this guy in full albums. Getting lost in it.

♫ Gotye – Showdown Below My Sombrero / This instrumental bonus Read more

[MP3] SAINT MOTEL doen’t need you to PUZZLE over their jam, the PIECES are already in the right places

Saint Motel

i gotta say, honestly, when you look at me a gun goes off, deep inside of me

♫ Saint Motel – Puzzle Pieces

Now who doesn’t like a rollicking piano line!? Huh? Who!? Exactly. Saint Motel lay it down on “Puzzle Pieces” slapping some bouncy percussion and jangle guitars all over it. It’s unabashed, optimistic, and relentlessly upbeat. Precisely the kind of song that springtime is all about and no surprise that these guys are LA-based. Now if only they had more than one track up on their MySpace! Their Wikipedia does mention a notoriously epic live show, a handful of respectable touring partners, and airplay on both KCRW and KROQ so all sings point to good times.
