[PREMIERE] Kid Cadaver – “Stable” (Don Loemax remix)

[soundcloud id=’134505793′]

Kid Cadaver snuck onto the scene in 2013 with one of the most enduring and catchy indie rock jams of the year. If you have seen their sweat soaked live sets, then you know how much more known these guys deserve to be. Hopefully this adventurous remix by newcomer Don Loemax gets them some more ears.

Happy Presidents day! Get weird!

Come celebrate the beginning of a new year of live music! The Spare Room is an awesome bar in Hollywood that has fine cocktails, a bunch of cool games, AND a bowling lane! On Thursday January 9th they will also have the sweet sounds of Scavenger Hunt and Kid Cadaver!

Kid Cadaver – KID CADAVER EP

So it’s Monday and your feet are cold and you are staring at your second cup of coffee wondering if you’ve just become immune. You need some Kid Cadaver in your head! These LA live show-favorites have been on TBE before but I feel strongly that their self-titled EP deserves its own post. 6  tracks of instantly energizing and infectious indie rock jams. EP closer “Stick Around” has been my favorite lately. But I don’t ever skip a track to get there. Enjoy the ride!

[MP3] Kid Cadaver – “Stable”

Kid Cadaver

i’m around and able

Kid Cadaver is sort of a misnomer considering the amount of body movement these guys induce. “Stable” is definitely the Weekend At Bernie’s kind of cadaver. Booze, bikinis, and pool parties. Get into it now before these indie dance groovers ride their jams from VHS to DVD if you know what I mean… huh?
