Electric Brick Wall, brought to you by Drag City, is the latest album from the four-piece band, Black Bananas. Jennifer Herrema, the band’s front lady, first earned fame with the band Royal Trux, but after breaking up in the early 2000’s, Herrema formed Black Bananas as her next musical venture. Here’s the band’s website, where you can all you need to know about the Black Bananas.
Xeno & Oaklander – Par Avion
This Brooklyn based duo has been writing together since 2004 and after a decade of writing together they’ve gotten pretty good at it. The twosome has toured around Europe and the United States many times. Right now they focus exclusively on the New York area, so don’t expect to see them in Atlanta anytime soon. However you can still check out Xeno & Oaklander website to learn more about the band and where you can get the latest album, Par Avion.
