You can’t beat this line-up of talent:
Falu is widely recognized for a rare ability to seamlessly blend a signature modern inventive rock style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent. She has performed all over the States and India. She has performed or collaborated with AR Rehman, Yo- Yo Ma and Wyclef Jean. She was youngest South Asian vocalist to deliver a solo performance at Carnegie Hall. She has also performed at the Lincoln Center. More recently, Falu and her band were featured on National Geographic Channel's Geo Sessions broadcast internationally, as well as on Fox TV's Fearless Music, where the hit single Rabba became the first Hindi song ever performed on the national network.
New York four-piece Deadbeat Darling is spending time on both sides of the pond. After selling out some of NYC's most prestigious venues like the Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge, the band has been whisked away from Brooklyn by UK label Spearhavoc Records to record in Wales with Grammy award winning producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Gomez, The Charlatans). With a bit of downtown swagger and post-indie charm, their sound weaves together rock, surf, and dub in a unique musical tapestry that is gritty and alluring. A native of neither extreme, their lifestyle toggles between Brooklyn dive bars and the mise en scene of the West Side's fashion district; their live show is a sweaty barrage of unrestrained energy and mischievous sway that leaves little doubt as to why Deadbeat Darling has garnered such an eclectic and rabid following. From surf-charged rock to hypnotic, dub-fueled brilliance, every song becomes a welcome bedfellow, clawing their way into the corners of the psyche. Deadbeat Darling will be touring Stateside and in the UK this year, and plan to release their forthcoming album in early 2012.
The buzz about New York City-based rock band My Pet Dragon can be attributed to their anthemic songs and powerful live show. Strong pop melodies and lead singer/songwriter Todd Michaelsen's soaring vocals define their newly released LP, Mountains and Cities which has been described by The Deli Magazine NYC as "the ideal soundtrack for that cross-country, convertible drive under Augusts’ everlasting sunshine". 'Mountains and Cities' also boasts contributions by members of Mercury Rev, Gov't Mule, and Hurricane Bells. The record was produced by Stephen George, the former drummer of the band Ministry. George has worked with a wide range of pop artists including Iggy Pop, the Cars, and Common.The 5-piece melodic rock band has been compared to Coldplay, the Smashing Pumpkins, and the Flaming Lips. Only The Blog Knows Brooklyn describes My Pet Dragon as "A band to keep your eye on in 2011.... their music has influences which range from U2 to mid-80s electro pop...in addition, backup singer Reena Shah’s Indian dancing keeps the band visually exciting." The Electric Panda music blog says
"if you remember a time when rock music on the radio was GOOD – My Pet Dragon is your band."
