JAMAICA, the French duo of Antoine Hilaire and Flo Lyonnet, recently released its debut album "No Problem" (Cooperative Music), which The Guardian called "an irresistable pop record." http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/aug/19/jamaica-no-problem-cd-review. The band sounds "like a grungier version of Phoenix, with upbeat, guitar-led melodies and a thick bassline." http://blog.mtviggy.com/2010/08/04/bands-we-like-a-french-group-called-jamaica/.  "Submitted for your approval: our pick for the “Song of the Summer”. Paris-based duo Jamaica have already conjured up the song that will be pulsing out of our 8-track player and shining its lights on our disco balls. Mix equal parts, hooky guitar riffs, spine-rumbling bass grooves, sprinkle in highly touted producers, Xavier De Rosnay of Justice and Daft Punk sound engineer Peter Franco and you’re on your way. Top it off with a “rawk” guitar solo and you’ll have us melting like butter." http://thedumbingofamerica.net/2010/05/12/your-new-favorite-band-jamaica/.  "[T]antilizingly close to pop perfection."  http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/jun/03/new-band-jamaica

DINOWALRUS is psychedelic synth-punk band from Brooklyn comprised of former Titus Andronicus guitarist Pete Feigenbaum, synth and bass player Liam Andrew and Depreciation Guild drummer Anton Hochheim. The band last year put out its debut album "%" on Kanine Records.  "They have the power, energy, thrust and machinations of a real, live rock band, landing somewhere between the gnash of classic punk and the boogie of '80s no wave."  Village Voice.  "While their name might suggest a pink-scored jump suit and a heavy reserve of bleeps, Dinowalrus actually makes sleek music from the future that simultaneously shares a lot of roots with early New Order [and] Brooklyn spazz-prog 2008 . . . . all adhered together with Spaceman 3 era reverb."  Impose Magazine.
