When I lived in Texas (post college from 2005-2008), one of the first people to book me to DJ was Mwanza Dover, aka Blixaboy. Dover has been a force in the music scene in Texas since the 90's, with too many bands to mention here. We're going to try and get an interview with him ASAP, but in the meantime, pop-over to XLR8R's web site and download "Sci-Fi Jack" from the Kliks & Politiks full length coming out on his own label, Astroblaque, on October 19.

We're very happy to announce that we're in production for the very first Architects and Heroes record, "Radio Anthems For The Newly Disenfranchised" (A+H001) by The Summer Of Flux. The band formed by Stephen Ruiz and Aaron Mobley, who met as undergraduates it SMU have been collaborating on music tother since the late 90's.
We will be releasing more information on the record over the next few weeks. In the meantime, you can listen to some demo tracks from the R.A.F.T.N.D. studio sessions on the band's Myspace Page, HERE.

Not much for the video...since there isn't one, but this track is a classic proto-boogie burner that has been slept-on for decades.

As much as I feel that Pitchfork misses the mark on some of their reviews and articles, "The Our Door" column is consistently amazing. The depth of research, the digging for, and finding of, bands and topics that would normally fly under the radar is impressive.
In this particular installment, underground internet music shops take center stage.
