Comedy lovers!  Make sure you go to Rob Delaney’s website on September 4, 2012 (link will open in a new window) as the funny man will release a download called “Live at The Bowery Ballroom” for the bargain price of $5!  The photo above was taken at the performance that is soon to be released and I laughed my ass off.  Since that night, I’ve (@according2g) started following Rob Delaney (@robdelaney) on Twitter and his tweets are hilarious and very politically incorrect.  THANK YOU, ROB!  We need more people out there telling the truth!  Pass it on!

Hey electonic/pop fans!  UK’s Bright Light Bright Light (aka Rod Thomas) has a set a release for his debut album “Make Me Believe in Hope” on June 26, 2012.  A few months ago, I saw Bright Light Bright Light perform a solo piano set and I really enjoyed it.  Singer Rod Thomas promised the crowd that night that we were being treated to a special performance because the album has beats.  He did not lie.  I just finished giving the album a spin and I am really digging it.  The tracks talk about falling in love, the problems that couples go through and getting your heart broken over great pop dance beats that are going make you cry and shake your booty on the dance floor.  In this day and age we all need to multi-task!  If you like Frank Musik, Dan Black or Robyn, you’re going to love this record.  If you don’t know those artists I mentioned,  you’ve been given a homework assignment.

I’ve seen quite a few bands since I saw Bright Light Bright Light perform and as the songs come on, I have flashbacks to that concert as the songs are instantly recognizable.  I’ve found myself recalling the choruses to the songs and loving hearing the tracks with a dance beat.  In a world of disposable music, this is a major accomplishment!  The album also features Scissor Sisters’ Del Marquis and Alison Pierce of The Pierces.  You can see a solo piano live version of “Cry at Films” featuring Del and Bright Lightx2 at the above link.  When you hear the soul in Rod Thomas’ voice coupled with the delectable dance beats of tracks such as “Disco Movement” and “How To Make A Heart,” you’re gonna find yourself hitting the repeat button.  While you wait patiently for the album to be released, head over to Bright Light Bright Light’s official website and snatch up some remixes!

The future is incredibly light for Bright Light Bright Light, whose album “Make Me Believe in Hope” will be released on June 26, 2012.  Get it and tell a friend!
