I've mentioned before that I take pictures at shows and you may even seen a few as my cover art for the podcast. Well last Saturday I got to shoot a Fashion show and let me tell you it was an awesome experience. At the Sound Board in Motor City Casino, Fashion in Detroit was held to promote style in a classy setting. Several fashion lines were presented by both local and national designers. Even a clothing line by Adam Levine of Maroon 5 was given a view. Music for the show came from a DJ, but also a local signer and hip hop artist Drew32 performed. There was also a market across from the show with local boutiques and acoustic artists.
There's more that could be written about the show but the only fair way to present the experience is with pictures I took during the fantastic event.

On this episode I mention that the TV show Gotham is starting this week. I was able to watch the pilot last night and found it both entertaining and engaging. There’s even more Batman characters and references than I expected. From the pilot it looks compelling enough to keep me watching week to week, rather than marathoning it every few weeks.
The features on this episode are 2 bands I’ve been enjoying lately, The Superhumanoids and GroupLove. The bands go well together because there are many similarities they share. They are both from LA, have male and female singers and have a bit of hip hop seeping in their sound. I blogged about the Superhumanoids last week. The track I play from the Superhumanoids is “Feel Good Hit of Summer” which is a Queens of the Stone Age cover.
I saw GroupLove earlier this summer at 89X’s Chill on the Hill, I was blown away with the energy and charisma of GroupLove. I expected them to be good as I like most of their songs, but they were really spectacular. They have a great presence, mostly due to the female singer, Hannah Hooper, who dances around the stage while whipping her hair. Their latest album is “Spreading Rumors” and shows a good progression, further defining their sound. Their Captain Cutz remix to “Colours” is the featured track.
You can download the 2 tracks from this episode on Soundcloud and both artists have their music available on Spotify.

The bands I like best are ones that take genres and bend them to create something wholly new but still reflective of today’s pop charts. The Superhumanoids are a perfect example of this as they have evolved from a dime a dozen indie band to an inspired electro band incorporating dark beats and hazy R&B into their sound.
They come from Los Angeles but don’t really come across as a West Coast band. There’s a chill in their music and some distance between their words and what they are trying to communicate. On the flip side there’s also some whimsy in their sound with short tracks that bounce along and are over in less than 3 minutes.
The Superhumanoids are also feature both male and female vocals which adds versatility to the mix. The male vocal is on the flat side but their female vocalist, Sarah shines with a soft voice that occasionally bursts with emotion. They do unique covers of songs from Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age. Their latest album “Expressionists” is their first full length, after a string of eps. Currently on tour with Erasure, their new song “Flipping Out” is track that is a good example of their hauntingly mellow approach to a jarringly good song.

I saw Run the Jewels at last year's Laneway Festival as the lone hip hop act. They drank and joked through most of their set but somewhere inbetween there was some brilliant hip hop.

Some people spent their labor day with family, others spent it doing yardwork. I spent a lot of mine watching the new Amazon Prime Pilots. On this episode I review all 5 of the new pilots. I'll let you know which ones I liked best and which ones I liked least. I do think you should give them a shot for yourself, as each one has good production and compelling elements. Overall, this is a much better attempt by Amazon compared to last year's pilots. I referred to two posts for info on the shows that you should check out as well, one from IGN and the other from Entertainment Weekly.
The track featured on this episode is "Colours" from the band Wild Cub. Wild Cub is from Nashville and are one of the best new indie pop bands I have come accross. I saw them play recently at a festival and even with an early timeslot they attracted quite a lote of enthusiasm from the crowd. The photo for the episode is a pic I took of the lead singer, Keegan Dewitt. You can download this track from the latest CMJ compilation.
My podcast affiliate for this episode is Audiobooks.com, where you can get 2 free audiobooks when you sign up for a membership and use my special promo code Tech2.
