Lightning Love goes to L.A. – Billboard Finals!

April 13th, 2011 -- Posted in Artists | No Comments »

So proud of the boys and girl in Lightning Love! They were the winners out of three bands in the Midwest and are living the swank in an L.A. hotel for a few days courtesy of Billboard! I knew they’d blow up, and hopefully they’ll win the whole thing and be on the televised Billboard Awards presentation! I knew I was right when I told Leah’s mom she had something special there… WOOOOOHOOO!!!

markGun Lake – Lovely songs, w/ a lovely voice, plaintive and wistful as it gets. Mark Fain writes beautiful songs, lovingly recorded (by Ben Collins of Lightning Love and Hounds Below) with aching harmonies from Ben and Aaron Diehl (also of Lightning Love).

Heavy psychedelic garage three-piece out of Detroit have been around for a while and making inroads with their 2nd release.

Their MySpace page >

“…and it captures that stretched and blown apart haunted aura of banshee tones and head-swimming echoes (“Lord is my Gun”) like some brooding broad shouldered ghost might check you through a plate-glass window…” Jeff Milo

Here’s a couple of tracks from their latest release

Keeping the love local. Michigan artists need and desrve national attention!

I have ‘ins’ with several of Detroit and Ann Arbor’s premiere groups and songwriters, let me know if you’d like to know more about who they are, and who’s making the buzz as of today!

Best Pop Act: Lightning Love
Lightning Love is a trio of nice suburb kids whose voices glisten like gooey honey on muffins softly tumbled onto picnic blankets in a sunflower field, yet their deceptively rhythm-heavy rock songs, hard cutting hooks and bitter existential lyrics that romanticize depravity and fuck-all-y’all attitudes. Their admirable self-released debut album November Birthday came out last year and got them several sweet opening gigs for the Von Bondies. As fans of Yo La Tengo, Fiery Furnaces and even that nearly-twee stuff like Heavenly — you can dig on this … everybody’s talkin’ about ‘em.
