The One With Maximum Rockage

On this episode: our dear cousins call attention to the “Who Dursted First” controversy and call out Comedy Bang Bang in the process, Luke’s gentleman’s dilemma turned out to be an idiot’s dilemma, Brian gets creepy on Idris Elba in a new segment called The Elba Room and they play eight of the best songs you’ll hear all week!

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever.  Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.

LA’s Gothic Tropic is the brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose resume includes appearing with Joseph Gordon-Levitt on HitRECord TV, collaborating with Ryan Adams, and touring and performing on Late Night with Seth Meyers with Night Terrors of 1929.

The band introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop, and its success hinges on each member’s ability to seamlessly collaborate, but also flourish individually.

Gothic Tropic kicks off a week-long West coast tour with Lucy next Friday, wrapping things up with a special homecoming show in LA on February 28 (see below for dates.) They’re also gearing up to release a brand new LP, FASTorFEAST, out this spring on Old Flame Records — more details coming soon.
