This event is 21 and over
After steadfastly perfecting their sound for the past few years this quintet from Brooklyn via Philadelphia finally unleashed their debut full-length, FM Arcade, this spring. The result of all this labor is an album that sees the band fully realizing their unique sound to make for a collection of songs that fit together to create a cohesive artistic image. In addition to the Pet Sounds-esque arrangements that permeate the disc, FM Arcade also showcases the literary nature of the group's lyrics, which are steeped in the storytelling tradition of classic songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Neil Young. FM Arcade is literally the sound of a band discovering—and challenging—themselves.
"[FM Arcade] is rife with slick musical structures and beautiful, clear vocals… Its instantly engrossing romanticism and new-wave rhythms find The Canon Logic at their most skillful."

Futurebrite (Album Release Party!)
Futurebrite was written on the wall, literally. That’s where singer and multi-instrumentalist Karen Kanan Corrêa (Demander) found the moniker for her collaboration with producer/re-mixer Josh Grant (aka Chuck Buckett). The Futurebrite Part I EP, available on June 11th, is the first of three to be released in 2013-2014 and draws inspiration from their shared fondness for the beat-heavy 80's and bright melodies.
After a fateful meeting on an airplane in 2009, Karen and Josh became fast friends. At the time both stayed in their own musical spheres in New York City. Karen's "dizzyingly addictive" (CMJ) indie rock three-piece Demander was touring Europe and the U.S. with The Hold Steady, New Model Army, and Art Brut, while also finishing their second full-length album. Josh was working in the studio with legendary DJ Sasha and doing production for electronic rock quartet Deluka, while also turning out his own remixes for the likes of Ke$ha, Britney Spears, and 2AM Club under the moniker Chuck Buckett. In 2012, after Karen had finished touring the US as bassist for Swedish Grammy-winning rocker Moneybrother and singing on releases from UK artist Gary Go and Baltimore-based Fulton Lights, they finally teamed up in Josh's studio overlooking the East River in Brooklyn to start recording the first Futurebrite EP. Within the year they had an EP mixed by Alex Aldi (Passion Pit, Bruno Mars) and performances from New York to California. The duo deliver the hooky and sweet Part I EP on June 11th, 2013.
