Chris Glover of Penguin Prison

I’m giving you fair warning: Penguin Prison is a group you are going to be hearing a lot about in the coming years.  The band, whose music can be described as an electro hybrid of Prince and Michael Jackson, is the brainchild of New York’s Chris Glover.  In under 2 years, Chris Glover has remixed artists as from Kylie Minogue to Jamiroquai and he’s about to release his debut album in the US on October 18, 2011.  The album will be released in the UK & Ireland, most of Europe (aside from France, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg), and Australia on September 5, 2011!  There’ll also be an exclusive, limited edition HMV double CD, plus exclusive bonus content with the album download from iTunes and Amazon. Penguin Prison is notorious for giving their fans free remixes, so you should definitely stay connected to them on Facebook or Twitter.  Before you read an interview I conducted with lead singer Chris Glover, get to know their music with their latest single, the infectious “Fair Warning.”

AM live at Terminal 5

AM live at Terminal 5.

On March 19, 2010, Tulsa-based and New Orleans-raised indie band AM opened for French electro legends Air at Terminal 5 in New York City.  Their influences range from Sergio Mendes and Brian Wilson to Curtis Mayfield and John Lennon.  You might have heard AM’s songs on TV shows such as you’ve heard AM’s tunes on HBO’s “Big Love”, NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”, MTV’s “The Hills”, ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters.”  Their new album, “Future Sons and Daughters” is out now and the cover is a nice tribute to Herb Alpert’s legendary “Whipped Cream and Other Delights” album cover. After getting maximum exposure opening up for Air, we can expect this band to become huge any minute now.
