music monday

We’ve got your #MM Music Monday right here each week on The Radar


Every week on Gashouse Radio we present some of the latest submissions. These are brand new bands to the station, and we’d like to know what you think of each of them. Simply tune in to The Radar every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We play a round at 9am ET, 2pm and during our show Gashouse Live at 6pm.


When you hear a song you like (and that goes for anytime day/night on Gashouse) share your opinion using the thumbs up/down buttons. They are located on the left hand side under the album artwork. They’re also located above the chat room, and on the Gashouse Radio Android/iPhone apps. These votes determine how often the songs are payed in rotation after their week on The Radar. Enough votes could also earn them a spot in our Top 10 Countdown (which airs everyday at 5am and 5pm ET).


Here are the bands debuting this Music Monday on The Radar:


music mondayHoney Spot Blvd: Honey Spot Blvd is a rock/pop/funk/blues band who likes to play and who also apparently bows down to peer pressure. The band has been together since 2003 and has a refined, tight yet fun and effortless sound. The Trenton based foursome has a unique sound that is influenced by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Frank Zappa, Bootsy Collins, and Mozart. They are multi-talented musicians who play multiple instruments during shows keeping the crowd guessing and showing off their diverse catalog of styles.


Peepall: We are a band of little goblins which represent your conscience, these “inner voices” that, sometimes, sound in your head. We mainly play Indie, Progressive, sometimes Electronic Rock, with special emphasis on instrumental parts. Our lyrics reflect that “conscience voice” which dictates whatever moves you to take decisions. Our philosophy is crystal clear: we want to sound wherever it’s possible and we want to bring our music to everybody who wants to listen to us. The important point is that you fully enjoy our music and pay little (or don’t pay if you don’t want to!).


The System Lights: The System Lights is a guitar-oriented mixture of atmospheric British and American influenced music. Lyrics are taken from shelves of classic and obscure literature as well as this thing called reality. Moody vocals and blistering, effects laden – as well as bare bones – guitar, are part of this concoction that walks the line between obscure indie and commercial radio rock and roll. We love life. Shine on.


Pretty ThievesIndie rock band from Hilo, Hawaii. We use piano, viola, ukulele, mandolin and harmonies to create songs about love, life, and adventure.


Little Sister: A 3-piece Rock band from Southern New Jersey.


The Luck of Eden Hall: A Popped Psychedelic Rock and Rollism out of Chicago. The


Thee Idea Men: Bluesy-rock band out of the Philadelphia area. Check them out July 27th at North Star Bar.


Dead:StopDead Stop is a hard rock band from Allentown, Pennsylvania. Their music is strongly inspired by the bands they grew up listening to like Rage Against the Machine, Story of the Year, Linkin Park, Crossfade, Breaking Benjamin, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Green Day. While these influences have shaped them into musicians throughout the years, their writing style has been influenced by fellow local artist I Am King. 


StargrovesStargroves is an eclectic mix of NYC based musicians, founded by lead singer and songwriter Teddy Watson.  Influenced by bands such as Freelance Whales, Stars, and Sigur Rós, the members of Stargroves play a variety of intriguing instruments, accounting for the originality of their sound. At the beginning of 2012, Teddy retreated to Iceland for three months to focus on writing music in solitude, without the distractions of NYC.  Upon returning to the States, Teddy formed Stargroves and teamed up with producer Jeremy Sklarsky (Freelance Whales’ “Weathervanes”) to record during the summer.  The result is a collection of unique, melodic, original songs sure to delight music lovers.


So tune in all week to hear these bands in our segment The Radar. Be sure to vote on the songs you hear using the thumbs up/down buttons. You can also share your opinions and become part of our show Gashouse Live via the chat room. Live performances, interviews, giveaways, news and much more weekdays at 6pm ET!
