Beat Connection – “Illusion”

No better way to celebrate The Burning Ear’s return to Austin for SXSW then with a new jam from the fantastic Beat Connection, who played our 2012 showcase. These guys continue to put out fantastic and sultry indie pop that fantastically dabble in both electronic and rock. I mean, just get into that awesome guitar work in “Illusion” at 1:56. Read more

Beat Connection – “Hesitation”

Sounds Like… handclaps versus flutes in the hungover capoeira national championships. Laid back sexy.

Location: Seattle, WA.

Future: Some great summer tour dates and hopefully a new album!

[STREAM] Beat Connection – “Palace Garden, 4AM”

you glimmer in the light, moving to the rhythm of  a summer night

  • Who: Jordan, Reed, Jarred, & Tom.
  • What: Indie dance pop, like Midi Matilda, Baby Monster, Black Light Dinner Party
  • Where: Seattle, WA + Facebook
  • When: The Palace Garden LP is out now.
  • Why: We’ve heard Beat Connection remixed, heard them doing the remixing, even heard their original jams killing it live. But somehow, among all that loving Beat Connection we forgot to post on them. Consider that shit fixed right damn now. These guys have evolved a ton since their early days of lower-fi Surf Noir EP. The beat Connection of 2012 is all hooks and grooves. Hips don’t stay still and clocks are stuck on summertime. It’s a pretty good place to be.

Brandon’s TBE Digest 29 – [10.11.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

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.

It’s a big one folks. Proceed with caution (and good speakers). Also note the new Digest logo that will be here to stay. Enough of that little weird cartoon guy we had for so long, amiright!? Cheers to new beginnings! And new jams!

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