Dance Card: Jamie Lidell

This red building is right by my house. It used to be a bar, but they closed it down because I think there was a shoot out. It was one of those bars where every night at 1am, like clockwork, the cops would show up due to a brawl or drug bust. Thats the Window Seat girls for you…living dangerously. Shooting in the sketchiest of locations for the greater good of dance moves and music.


Dance Card: Mates of State

Mates of State are like my kid brother, I will always defend them and punch out anyone who talks badly about them. In other words, I will stand by this band until the end of time. They have a new record coming out in September, and I’ve already set an iPhone alert to buy the record at midnight!


Dance Card: Florence and the Machine

Dance Card: Iggy Pop “The Passenger”

I always imagined if my life was a movie this song would be used the opening credits.


Standby: Neil Young’s Harvest

Got serious brownie points from the parents for waxing poetic about this record! Hey Mom, thanks for calling me after seeing this post.

This is a record I go back to time and time again. A lot of Neil Young fans criticize this record for being to soft and too commercial, but I’m no Neil Young expert, I just remember listening to these songs as a kid and loving them.

You can buy the mp3 album, CD, Vinyl or AUDIO CASSETTE (audio cassette what!??) on Amazon.

To stay up to date with Neil Young visit his garage. I saw him in concert a couple of years ago and I was the only person there that was born in the 80′s. I was also the only person not smoking pot….oh to be young and uncool.


Standby: CEO

Oh Eric why is every song on CEO’s debut record so danceable? How am I supposed to get any work done with your music playing in the background??

To buy the debut record from CEO go to your local record store, or order it online here. Modular records is also selling a white Vinyl edition here.

And the dance party resumes….

Music for you…..


Standby: The Freelance Whales

Standby :: Freelance Whales from The Window Seat on Vimeo

Is it just me or does this band sound like it should have come out in 2001? Critics be damned, I like the freelance whales! They might be 10 years late to the party, but at least they brought nightcaps!

Judah Dadone formed the freelance whales in 2008 by placing an ad on Craigslist.  He spent several months interviewing musicians all over the city, until he found the perfect people. And instead of playing shows in venues, the freelance whales worked on their sound by performing on the street corners of New York City, just to play in front of people and see what their reaction would be. Turns out the reaction was good, and after self releasing their debt record they were snatched up by indie darling label Frenchkiss Records.

Learn more about the freelance whales and buy their debut album here.

Listen to another good song……
