The Window Seat Trailer No.2

We’ve had so much fun over the last couple of months interviewing new bands, going to shows and staging dance parties in random and sometimes sketchy areas of Denver….so we thought it was time to make another trailer to help spread the word about The Window Seat. We’ve also taken your advice and switched the website to be more reader friendly, and not as confusing. It’s a very simple site, and we are continuing to work on it and make it better. Any feedback is much appreciated, so email us or tweet us!

More than anything, we just want to thank everybody who’s been spreading the word and helping us with all the elements that go into a web series. The bands, the labels, the venues and all of our friends–you guys have made The Window Seat possible! So thank you.

We hope 2012 brings many more fun interviews, segments and dance parties.

dance cards are for lovers,

Band Episode: Mates of State

I remember the first time I heard Mates of State. They were one of those bands that I fell for immediately. I could sing (horribly) along with them at the top of my lungs. I could put their songs on mixtapes for friends, family and crushes. They are like the ultimate mixtape band, they manage to find a way to appear on the all of my greatest mixtape masterpieces. Mates of State have given thousands of people (including me) a chance to tell someone via mixtape: “I like you crazy” or “It’s not the same without you and I” or “What are your weaknesses? I won’t pass you by.”

Despite the lyrics I just mentioned, Mates of State are more than just sweet pop songs, in fact their performances have more fight and energy than a mosh pit at a Mastodan concert. What’s even cooler, is that Kori and Jason are some of the kindest, most down to earth people we’ve met since starting The Window Seat.

To buy their records and see their show dates go HERE. We can’t think of a better gift to give/receive this holiday season than a Mates of State LP. Especially the new record Mountaintops, it’s ace.

heart,

Christy and Megan

Dance Card: Weekend “Coma Summer”

Very excited that Weekend’s debut Record is out this month. You can buy it online, listen to it on Spotify or be legit and buy the LP from Slumberland Records.

This noise rock trio reminds me of early Jesus and Mary Chain, Psychocandy mixed with My Bloody Valentine and Joy Division. It’s somehow romantic but completely bleak, kind of like the month of November. Like that Sunday in November when you were bored and walked to the Science Building to dance it out and then head home to make apple cider.

Dance Card: The Drums “Forever and Ever, Amen”

This is the fist Dance Card we ever did. Downtown Denver Library, I love you. Sorry I still have Patti Smiths Autobiography checked out. I will return it….eventually. I mean if you let dancing like this happen in your library, how strict are you on paying fines?

Dance Card: Ben L’Oncle Soul “Seven Nation Army” (White Stripes Cover)

Ben l’Oncle Soul is a French soul singer. That’s right: French. Soul. Singer. Hello!!! (Insert swoons from the ladies around the world here.) If you like retro soul and funk with a modern feel, check out his debut record! Every song is a gem, and sometimes the record will play on repeat 5 times before I decide to switch to something else. The record is only available as an import cd right now (super $$$), but you can listen to the album and his first EP on Spotify.

Ben L’Oncle Soul (real name Benjamin Duterde) got his start singing in the Fitiavana Gospel Choir, his work with the Gospel choir led him to a solo recording deal with the French division of Motown Records. He released the Soul Wash EP in 2009 and then 6 months later he made his full-length debut with the the self titled Ben l’Oncle Soul. His first single off the debut record is a cover of the White Stripes classic, Seven Nation Army.

Who do I speak to about putting together a tour with Jamie Lidell and Ben L’Oncle Soul? That would be a dream come true, right?

And thanks to my friend Wendy, for introducing me to his music. She’s the coolest girl in school, and is a genius when it comes to music.
