Stax Hungry

So these interesting looking guys to the left are "Stax Hungry", pretty clever, dare i say it, hip-hop. But the sound is hardcore. I love the melody and I mean these guys can really shredd! The vocals are bit too hardcore for me but if your into punk/metal the 4 tracks on the Stax Hungry Myspace page are for you. They remind me of Rage Against the Machine but if the lead singer of Rage had a deeper voice.

I'm pretty new to Stax myself so I'm gonna hit cha with their about me section for their myspace:

Formed originally under the name Cracker Jack and the White Chocolates, Stax hungry brings thought provoking, conscious lyrics and blends them with high impact rock melodies. Stax Hungry, est. 2005, has been the at the forefront of the "funcore" movement and has had the pleasure of performing with well know bands such as- The Burning Cacti, Jefferson Golfcart, Awesome Core, Pauly Tomale and the magnets, Dog Latin, and From the Future. There is far more to come from Stax Hungry as they are preparing for the release of their first album (not yet titled) for the summer of 2008. Be prepared to enjoy yourself to death.

So check it out and judge for yourself, out of the 4 tracks on their Myspace page my favorite is "Blink Yellow", just because of the first minute or so alone, the music is on point, so here's a link to their Myspace:

Uh Huh, Them!

Time to talk about my favorite band of the moment, Uh Huh Her. Uh Huh Her is a band/duo consisting of Leisha Hailey who gained success in the late 90's with the band/duo The Murmurs. And she's actually famous for her role on The L Word, that little up and coming show about lesbian life, and Camila Grey who has worked with some of the biggest people in the music industry (but she doesn't talk about that) and plays like EVERY instrument!

Their sound is genius, its like PJ Harvey but more upbeat and electric. Fans of this band have been waiting over a year for their debut cd to come out! Which is really special we've all experienced this journey and that's so rare. We've seen them perform at their label when they got the record deal, footage of them praticing and writing songs for the EP a year ago. I'm going to be reporting on these guys ALOT so I won't even drag this one out's some of the more recent web video out there...
