Kid Sister Hits Daytrotter

Kid Sister

I’ll admit, I was a little surprised when I heard that rising pop star Kid Sister recently did a session on the oh-so-indie Daytrotter site, but I’m not complaining!

The Chicago native helped us ring in 2010 at our New Year’s Eve party and got everyone out on the dance floor with hot, glossy pop hits like “Pro Nails” and “Right Hand Hi.”  You can download these songs and more from her live in-studio session at Daytrotter.   Enjoy!

Free, Energetic Downloads From Free Energy

Free Energy

“Philadelphia quintet Free Energy’s excellent debut single, also called “Free Energy,” is a perfectly tart, semi-glammy, Thin Lizzy-style nugget of summery rock’n’roll, the kind of tune the kids in Dazed and Confused might play loud, with the top down, on their way to party at the moon tower.” –Spin

Free Energy is so insanely fun.  They’re everything you loved about old Weezer, Tom Petty and Coconut Records.  Don’t take our word for it?  Just check out these free mp3 downloads from the band, and catch them live TONIGHT (March 4th) when they open up the Foreign Born show at The Frequency.  Tickets are still available here.
