Son of Stan
Son of Stan is the solo project and band of songwriter Jordan Richardson (Drummer for Ben Harper, Ringo Starr). The creative debut album is set for release in 2013 and was produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and shocases a unique, psychedelic style that Richardson calls "Divorce Pop".
The sound of his forthcoming album, due for release in 2013, though hard to pinpoint, range in influence from the darker side of 80's pop such as Joe Jackson, Phil Collins, R. Stevie Moore, (and even Hall and Oates) to more, even heavier, stonier psychedelic nods.
Richardson told Dallas based blog Central Track: "It's a little difficult to describe the sound of it, but there is a definite aesthetic goal in mind with the record. There are a lot of songs from my childhood in the mid 80's that when I hear now they give me a totally unsettling feeling (songs I refer to as "divorce pop", though my parents remain happily married) and remind me of the pains of being dragged around by my mom on hot Saturday afternoons in 1989, to a weird strip mall women's clothing store called 'Show Off Fashion'. I want to make songs that convey that feeling and mood. "North Texas Unsettling Childhood Memory Pop". or maybe "Divorce Pop". The song "Corsica" is definitely about that, I think. Both sonically and in subject matter... I dunno. Its weird and you can dance to it, but I hope it makes you feel a little funny.
NVUS (pronounced "envious", NV-US) is an American Pop/Rock Electronic band formed in 2013 by twin brothers Cristopher Leigh and Louis Messina Jr. Founded after the dissolution of their previous band, Electric Touch, the duo found a new interest in creating pop/rock music while experimenting with a blend of live instruments and analog sequencers. They released their debut single "Static" for free download on their Facebook page this April.
