Young Digerati

Over a week late (sorry Frank) I am proud to introduce a band that I think will go places. Young Digerati is a four-piece band from San Francisco that according to their bio got to know each other during a high school detention. I don't know if that is meant to be taken literally or that they mean a detention in "The Breakfast Club" or "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"...

The band consist of Frank, the seasoned rock musician, Jeff (ex-INTL), the singer-songwriter with the pop sensibilities, Will, the artist with the visual prowess, and John (aka Johnatron), the electro producer and blogger (Disco Workout). They make lovely Dreamwave but infuse it with indie and electropop. In short they sound more like a proper band than just another product of a teenager with a laptop (not that there's anything wrong with that). I'd like to see them live - I can imagine they put on a show - so I hope Frank will be able to sow together that European tour.

"The Amanda EP" (which to confuse is comprised of five versions of the song "The Dauphin") includes remixes by Boston's Good Morning Good Night (GMGN) (Mozzarella Records), Ride The Universe (Fiero/Digitalfoxgolove as you all know), Aussies Muffin and newcomers Whorer House from Modesto, and it was released last Monday. The original and the RTU remix have been favourites for a while though, as is the next single called "Aquiel". That will be released April 18 and include remixes from StardonE, Mitch Murder, Flashworx and Johnatron.

First, check out the video:
