[Recommended] Eastern Conference Champions, Spetember 23rd, High Noon Saloon

If the people responsible for the Twilight movie have made any right decisions, it’s the bands they’ve decided to include on their soundtracks; among them is a trio named the Eastern Conference Champions.  Their song A Million Miles an Hour contributed to the Twilight franchise’s third film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.  Its bouncy bass line and soaring guitars made it a perfect fit for the film.  The band behind that track is an eastern bred group made up of Joshua Ostrander, Greg Lyons and Melissa Dougherty.  Ostrander and Lyons had previously played together in a group called “Laguardia” but split ways to start a project of their own.  Dougherty was later added to contribute her fantastic guitar skills.  The band released their first LP Ameritown with Suretone records but soon wanted Independence from a major label.  Their next independently released EP Sante Fe was praised as their best work to date.  Eastern Conference Champions refers to themselves as a “one stop shop” in regards to their music.  They handle everything from recording to mixing to designing the artwork for their posters.  The group is currently loving their freedom and excited about the release of their newest album Speak-ahh. Eastern conference has a similar sound to A.A. Bondy or Spoon. They feature a lot of towering guitar with tricky finger work and soft singing.  They shine with their own take on a gritty blues sound.  Most of their tracks are a raw mix of folk and garage rock.  Ostrander adds a lot with his vocals.  He has an almost whiney twang reminiscent of the great Bob Dylan.  The likeness is probably why the people at Gossip Girl loved the band’s cover of Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice Its All Right, which quickly became one of ECC’s most popular songs. Eastern Conference Champions also made a stop by Studio M for a live performance.  Check out the video! Make sure you come see Eastern Conference Champions perform TONIGHT! They will be at the High Noon Saloon.  See our Concerts page for more details! See you there! -Emily Cartwright

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a little...

Will this be Clapton's last record?

World's Worst iPod: Olivia Newton John "Please Mr. Please"
Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"
