Humans Want You to Hook Up At Their Shows
By Kelly Knapp
Humans are Peter Ricq and Robbie Slade (Image by Justin Tyler), who are two guys who make music to dance to. You could meet your next significant other at one of their shows, or you can just re-discover one of the first things humans learned how to do – party. Robbie and Peter come from different musical backgrounds, one formally being more folk-inclined, and the other more electro-pop inclined. Before their last show at Glasslands in Brooklyn, they sat down with me for a quick Q&A. After introducing themselves with the wrong names, they told me about their gentlemanly inclinations, how their new album will be different, and gave slightly conflicting party advice.
The Heavy Pets Want to Improve Your Life
By Kristina Vallarini
The Heavy Pets are Jeff Lloyd, Mike Garulli, Jim Wuest, Jamie Newitt and Justin Carney, a five-piece rock n' roll jam band out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The band began in 2005, and now have two LPs under their belts: 2007's debut double-disc Whale and 2010's The Heavy Pets. This all seems simple enough, with the exception that they have received critical acclaim from almost everywhere, including The Huffington Post, for their danceable and infectious live performances, have a massive discography, and are festival favorites.
