XPN welcomes Boy to World Cafe Live tonight. Celebrating their first US tour, the Swiss-German duo will be bringing their unbelievably happy medley of indie music to the quaint stages of World Cafe. The duo envelopes themselves within upbeat rhythms and sounds in the same vain as iconic indie groups such as Phoenix and Feist, with a little bit of Vampire Weekend thrown into the mix. Coupling with their debut tour in the US, the band will also be treating fans with tracks off their debut album Mutual Friends, which was released in 2011. Tickets and information about their show with Ari Hest can be found here. Below is a video for their hit track “Little Numbers” off of Mutual Friends.
Local rapper Chill Moody teamed up with Freeway for the grooving new track “Change Coming.” The song is included on Moody’s latest RFM album, which he previewed at his sold-out headlining gig at The TLA this past week. Stream and download the Joe Logic-produced song below, and check out Moody’s plans for 2013 in our interview with him here.
