Dead Times – “Lightness”

When the world gets heavy you need to keep the things that fill you with lightness around. Somehow Dead Times wrote this new song from the point of view of me hearing their new song and singing to them about it. Not sure how they did it but its pretty badass. A great way to ease into the week.  Read more

Dead Times – “Better Off”

Music for… finger-snapping your way through that heartbreak. Thanks to this slinkly new jammer from Dead Times, its nothing a little horns and a hip shimmy cant cure.

Dead Times – “Every Moment”

Music for… re-entering the Earth’s orbit after a hazy weekend in dimly lit places you wouldn’t tell your mother about. AKA Mondays.

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Future: Opening for Lemaitre in SF and LA. Awww yeah.

Dead Times – “Feel”

“My best is yet to come” is the line here. Sing it with Dead Times. Feel it. Its true. And if that all seems a bit to touchy feely for you then just turn off the lights, get naked, and dance around. Like I did.
