Often compared to Prince, the two brothers of Inc. combine high pitched vocals with smooth and sensual beats. Born and bred in Los Angeles, the duo tackles the soul genre — and does so with undeniable style and sparse (but impressive) instrumentation. Andrew and Daniel Aged will stop into Johnny Brenda’s tonight as the brothers continue on a debut North America tour. Check out the video of “Black Wings” — which features an unexpected amount of chains and chickens — and find tickets and information here.
Chilean band and a 2012 South by Southwest Showcasing Artist Astro offers bold and vibrant electro-pop. For the summer, the group has decided to take their talents across international borders and will be performing at World Café Live, joined by Seismic Thrust and Jackie Paper. Watch the musicians of Astro run around with fur pelts and animal skulls in the enthusiastic (if not slightly bizarre) video of “Ciervos” (Stags). Information and tickets for the event can be found here.
