We just added two new tracks to our rotation here at RadioMilwaukee. We added new music from the new band The Virgins who we have blogged about here a couple of times, and new music from a Norwegian artist by the name of Swell Session.
The Virgins are a 4 member band that formed in 2005 and are based in New York City, New York. They have toured with Jet and opened for Sonic Youth and Patti Smith. They are currently taking part in the Nylon Summer Music Tour, opening for She Wants Revenge, with Be Your Own Pet and Switches(Wikipedia). I first highlighted them in our Don't Sleep section on this blog. Their song "Rich Girls" which we are playing has been featured in the shows "Gossip Girl" and "Entourage". Think of the song as a Strokes tune that you can dance to.
The Virgins - "Rich Girls"
The next artist is out of Norway and he goes by the name of Swell Session. His real name is Andreas Saag and he is one of Scandinavia's top producers in the club jazz scene. He was also part of the project Stateless which can also be heard on RadioMilwaukee. His latest project Swell Communication is collaboration with artists from around the globe including another producer by the name of Mr. Scruff out of the UK which is also the song you can now hear on RadioMilwaukee. Check it out for yourself and also check out the blog post that our own DJ Marcus wrote on Swell Session.
