Rocktronica From The UK...DVI Podcast 079 - .Sub

My guests this week are UK band .Sub, from Norwich. At the moment, they are touring the US. If you happen to be in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or Phoenix this weekend, please go see them. Check out their MYSPACE PAGE for venues, dates and times.

Their music is described as "rocktronica". What does that mean? Well, let's let some of their reviewers explain:

"...atmospheric guitar trio .sub sound like Joy Division and Mogwai scrapping over who can sound the most epic" : (NME)

"Their ability to switch seamlessly between crunching rock riffs and fragile piano-led ballads is admirable, and musically they're incredibly sound." : (Play Magazine)

"Gig-goers can expect the use of samples, luscious arrangements, enhanced only by their amazing and awe-inspiring 'Explosions In The Sky' style guitar soundscapes." : (WombatWombat)

“Imagine if Ian Curtis fronted Radiohead and Brian Eno produced it and you're coming somewhere close to their sound.” : (Concrete Magazine)

You can download the show's MP3 FILE here.

Their music can be purchased thru: .Sub

DIGIVEGAS IS NOW AN OFFICIAL AFFILIATE ADVERTISER/RETAILER FOR AMAZON.COM AND iTUNES. IF YOU LIKE THE MUSIC YOU HEAR ON ANY EPISODE OF THE SHOW (IF IT'S AVAILABLE THROUGH EITHER AMAZON OR ITUNES) YOU CAN BUY IT RIGHT FROM THE DIGIVEGAS BLOG ENTRY.

I have been retrofitting the show's previous posts with links to the artists' music, so you can now purchase CD's through Amazon.com, and iTunes for direct mp3 downloads.

I ALSO AM SETTING UP THE DIGIVEGAS MUSIC STORE, AT WWW.SHOPDIGIVEGAS.COM. THERE YOU WILL FIND MUSIC FOR SALE FROM THE 20 OR SO MOST PREVIOUS EPISODES, AS WELL AS A GENERAL LISTING OF OTHER GREAT MUSIC FROM AMAZON.COM.

IF YOU DO ANY TYPE OF SHOPPING AT AMAZON AT ALL, PLEASE HELP PAPA PAULIE OUT, WILL YA? ENTER THROUGH THE DIGIVEGAS MUSIC STORE. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL TO YOUR FINAL PRICE, BUT IT WILL SURE HELP ME OUT WITH A LITTLE PIECE OF THE ACTION, JUST A FEW PENNIES. IT WILL HELP MAKE ALL THIS HARD WORK I DO HERE A LITTLE MORE WORTHWHILE.

THANKS,

-P
