If you were unable to tune in to last night’s Dirty Glitter- never worry- I’ve got you covered! Inside are the latest HV picks!
Black Hi-Lighter was created in 2010, by original members James Poulos and Mark Reback in the creative hub that is Los Angeles’ eastside. They’ve since added bassist David Wright, and lead guitarist Eric Liljestrand to the line-up. BHL has been getting radio airplay on KCSN 88.5 FM in SoCal (and online), WZBC 90.3 FM Boston College Radio, and were picked as “Local Anesthetic” Band of the Week by DJ Julie Slater on her “Out On A Limb” program. Their brand new single “Chinese Gong” is getting airplay on Kevin Bronson’s “BuzzBandsLA” program and “Bite The Bullet” has been added to regular rotation on Moheak Radio.
The band’s new full-length record BITE THE BULLET will be released on 3/19/13 and was produced by Grammy-winner Eric Liljestrand (U2, Ringo Starr, Lucinda Williams), and mastered in analog by the legendary Joe Gastwirt (http://gastwirtmastering.com/db_files/credit.php). BITE THE BULLET reflects BHL’s love of early ’70s glam, 80’s stadium rock, and late ’90s alt-rock, throwing Bowie, T. Rex, Queen and Badfinger into a sweaty, dirty backroom with Interpol, Guided By Voices, Queens of the Stone Age and Radiohead.
Keeping in the spirit of brand new discoveries, this next track was discovered while digging through all the random submissions High Voltage receives daily. See, they really do listen to it all over there!
It’s a high-octane rock & roll hallucination. Cadaver Dogs have rewritten the rules on excess, indulgence, hedonism, and when it comes to gratification, too much is never enough. So if you’re looking to get some strange, you’ve come to the right place.
One live show is all it takes to make a believer, a psychoactive rock revival that has seen frothing first-timers carried off in fits of rabid ecstasy. Cadaver Dogs have spread their dirty disease across the Midwest multiple times over, supporting bands such as Foxy Shazam, Valient Thorr, Riverboat Gamblers, Free Energy, The Flatliners, and Hollerado, and they’ll continue their path of consumption until there’s no one left to corrupt. Lucky for you, their next stop is your brain stem.
Having already released a pair of erratic EPs, 2010’s Thrill Ride and 2011’s On All Fours, Cadaver Dogs will deliver their highly-anticipated debut full length album superloose in late 2012, a mesmerizing array of delirium-inducing rock ragers and kaleidoscopic freak-outs for those adventurous enough to take the trip. They’ll beat you to death and jolt you back to life with one quick thrust, and you’ll walk away with the scars to prove it, if you walk away at all.
So throw down that needle and feel what’s like to have a one night stand with a savage beast. Your hormones will rage, you’ll scream for more, but the Dogs are moving on and you’re just another lucky victim.
Think you can handle it? Then get superloose with Cadaver Dogs and take a peek at the band that everybody wants to see.
