It’s my fourth solo-Band-Mom project! and it RULES!!
This was the first Band Mom band I didn’t initially meet through friends (although we did turn out to have plenty of mutual friends once we talked, including my beloved Tereu Tereu): I just saw Big Bang TV play a show (at one of my favorite venues, Union Hall); and I loved it so much I approached them afterward. And somehow convinced them to hire me! I am so glad. They are so good!
BIG BANG TV
BIG BANG TV
Big Bang TV is what happens when four people who can’t agree on anything try to make music. Matt is a singer/songwriter, Scott is a hip/hop DJ and producer, Joe was metal drummer turned electronic musician, Andrea’s last gig was playing accordion for a female folk trio. They’re influenced by everything from Tortoise to The Pixies to Stravinski to DJ Shadow.
Frantic, post-punk guitars stumble in and out of pools of atari synth and turntable chirps on the band’s self-titled debut. Male/female vocals lazily dance around each other before being swept up by a driving break beat and booming bass.
It’s music that is both catchy and complex, intimate and epic, comforting yet a little creepy.
“powerful and beautiful…cohesive yet multifaceted post-punk-pop. Big Bang TV is for those who enjoy Pavement’s reckless melodies and Enon’s edgy sound. Their song “Hollywood”, with its contagious melody and its ever changing musical background, has the potential to be a college radio hit.” – The Deli Magazine “NYC Artist to Watch”

The record went for adds a couple weeks ago (on 9/21), and it’s off to a great start. Everyone is lovin’ it, and with good reason – it’s really great! We just barely missed sneaking onto the charts last week, so let’s make this the week!
Also, last week (9/25) I was lucky enough to make it out to their record release show at Southpaw. They were awesome, and they played a Britney Spears cover.
And now you have the chance to see it for yourself! They just hit the road a few days ago, and are quite possibly coming to a city near you. Radio kids, please let me know if you’re interested in having them come in for an instudio, do a phone interview, send some extra CDs as giveaways to promote your show – whatever it is, they are DOWN!!
