Lo cal Mu sic
There's enough noise roiling out there on the internet, sonic seeds blooming up from every inch of the known world, from any soul with the means (see: portable computer device), it's dangerously easy to overlook (to even be caught unaware) of the songs being written by your neighbors...
Here's a brief, humble round up of Detroit-new-ness:
Phantom Airmen - Sampler
Little Island Lake - Jawbones
Benjamin Miles & Eddie Logix - Play It Forward
or... try Streaming City Center's Lying To Second-Graders (via NPR Music)
or... download your digital copy of Prussia's Poor English -part 1 (the first four songs, offered on 10" vinyl, of a subsequent 3-part release)
Prussia: "Sleeper" (Prefix Premiere) by prefixmag
or... consider hip/hop duo Passalacqua, performing at the end of the month (9/29) @ the Pike Room in Pontiac...
Then again, you can see Passalacqua and much more live local music at this year's Dally in the Alley - take a look at the Dally line up for 2011
