The 80’s English snythpop icons ERASURE are back in 2011 with a new album (Tomorrow’s World) and a full-scale 27 date North American Tour. A week from today, 10.06.11 -Will be your last chance in 2011 to catch Andy Bell & Vince Clark in the States, as they close out their summer tour at The Moore Theatre in Seattle Washington, USA.
Singles like Always, Chains of Love, A Little Respect and continued chart-topping success in the UK during the 90’s -have aided in ERASURE selling over 25 million records to date.
Above, When I Start To (Break It All Down) the first single off their new record -exhibits just how solid of a vocal showman Andy Bell still is. FYM continues to maintain a nostalgic listening love affair with ERASURE -their spirited 80’s anthems still shimmer with contemporary bliss. It’s progressive easy listening kinetic pop music, and we can’t wait to see them at the historic Moore Theatre next Thursday in Seattle USA.
Electropop British counterpart -Frankmusik will be opening the night (he also produced ERASURE’s latest release Tomorrow’s World). It should be an incredible night of over the top dancefloor friendly sonic vigor assuredly impossible to miss. Buy tickets HERE. Cheers, FYM.
One week from today our favorite party of the year happens- Halloween (Click the image above to view our featured channel on Cull.TV). In addition to this month’s Autumn Escapades selections we have put together a spooky-fresh Halloween inspired ToP 20 Cull.TV Video Playlist -a perfect background to your 2011 black celebrations (Depeche Mode reference).
FYM has decided to leave out the typical Halloween video choices (Thriller) and dig a little deeper for holiday novelties as shown above with The Fat Boys ode to Freddy Krueger -Are You Ready Freddy.
Other video choices include contemporary wonders like: Zola Jesus, EMA, The XX, and Black Mountain. We’ve also decided to include a few classics from -Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, The Smiths and the Ramones. It’s a perfect mix of it’s dead man’s party inspired sonic cinema.
And of course every Five Videos we’ve added a few vintage movie trailers for nostalgic replay. Click HERE to view the rest of our ToP 20 Halloween picks. And as always we thank the incredible Cull.TV service for delivering us a platform to once again enjoy the magic of watching and discovering new music videos with friends in a beautifully well-designed modern format. Cheers, FYM.
It’s music for Young Moderns. This week’s spotify playlist is a journey into the obsessive mind of Art Director J. Thomas Codling, titled FYM: MAKE YA DO WRONG. It’s a selection of nighttiming personas, blurring genres into a long steam of sonic curation.
While listening to this mix we suggest: a bottle of white wine (‘because of the lower alcohol content’), with HBO’s now defunct Bored to Death playing silently in the background, buzzing on low-lit conversations between together through life friends.
And yes, Kenny Loggins Meet Me Half Way is on here… because we recently re-watched Sylvester Stallone’s 1987 arm-wrestling classic Over The Top. We’ve also included some down and dirty soul (Wilson Pickett, Al Green, Bobby Womack, Edwin Starr), grass-roots punk (Discount, Defiance Ohio), 1980’s nostalgia (Tears for Fears, New Order, Echo and the Bunnymen), and a bunch of deep cuts with international flavor. View the entire track list below. They Live, for Young Moderns, Cheers.
