The Hourly Radio and IAMX (featuring Chris Corner of Sneaker Pimps) are playing tonight at Vinyl in the CW Music Complex. I’m looking forward to seeing The Hourly Radio after all the online buzz I’ve been reading about them on ze blogs. IAMX, after totally getting into their record from 2004, “Kiss + Swallow”, and being a Sneaker Pimps fan previous to that. It should be a pretty good pairing and I expect overall good show.
Last month The Hourly Radio released a new EP titled GUN IN HAND. The release contains the brand-new song “Gun In Hand” along with club remixes of several songs off their debut record, History Will Never Hold Me (Kirtland Records.) The reworkings were done by artists including Shiny Toy Guns, Michael Jurin of Stellastarr* and more.
The EP is available for free download via www.thehourlyradio.com/download.html or for purchase on limited edition CD.
