Happy Friday! We did it! Here's some cool new music as a reward.
First, we've got a track from DJ PlayPlay's new EP, It's Only 3am
, which comes out on Monday via Knightwerk records. You might know PlayPlay from their work with Durham's Party Illegal collective
, or perhaps you've caught one of the hundreds of other eclectic dance parties they've d.j.ed over the past decade.
You can get a sneak peek of what PlayPlay offers at their EP release party tonight by listening to "Residency"
below. Tickets to that are here
, or just show up before the show's 10 p.m. start time.
This week has also brought us a new song from Future Kings of Nowhere, who, like Midtown Dickens
, are reuniting for a one-off gig for a good cause in February (is it 2009 again?). They'll play WKNC's Double Barrel Benefit next Saturday night, and you can buy tickets to that here
. The band released its first song since its May 2012 EP Pirates
via Bandcamp—and, yep, "Guilt" has the same ramshackle rock stuff that we know and love from FKON. You can listen to it below, or download it for a price of your choosing.
