He’s My Brother She’s My Sister (HMBSMS), led by the smokin’ hot siblings Rob Kolar and Rachel Kolar, have taken their folk-glam routine to over 200 shows this past year alone. They made their South Florida debut this past December with a killer performance during Art Basel in Miami. (SeeMusic Basel: He’s My Brother She’s My Sister)
Not only have the siblings been busy touring, they have been busy making music. They have since released an EP and are once again making their way across the country and back to the Magic City.
Sadly, we’ve been screwed by the seasonal scourge of team sports: The time slot for today’s Locals Only show was seized by a sportscast, so we have to wait until next week to go on air. Yes, that’s right: They still have sports on the radio. In the age of quad-core smartphones and 4G LTE Internet service everywhere, the age of instant notifications for every occurrence imaginable, the age of on demand TV in 3D for goodness’ sake, apparently there are still enough people out there who want to consume their sports on the radio to merit a dedicated radio broadcast in lieu of regularly scheduled programming.
To cater to the no-doubt thousands of people who choose to get their dose of sports vicariously via 1930′s technology, the leaders of sports are given free hand to seize radio time slots and replace them with several hours worth of sports psuedo-slang regurgitated live on air by a douchey announcer. It’s a forced nostalgia trip to the days when huddling around your family’s wood-paneled, refrigerator-sized radio was the next best thing to actually going to a sports game.
It also would seem that UM is trying to maintain some sort of Douchey Sports Announcer Training program, presumably because would-be professional sports announcers must pay their dues on the AM/FM airwaves before they can graduate to the silver screen. We can only hope that advances in speech synthesis technology will eliminate the need for them in the very near future.

Our friends at Alley Times caught up with the guys at their studio on a recent Autumn evening to talk about their (mis)adventures and the crazy awesome year they’ve had. Continue Reading

Blending choice elements of dance, chillwave, and synthpop, Krisp’s fresh-from-the-oven sound is chock full of chewy melodies and nutty vocals, kind of like a crunchtastic Snickers bar for your hungry, hungry ears.

The Overtown Music Project, a non-profit organization, believes that music is transformational and can act as an engine of change to revitalize impoverished communities. Their mission is a movement that shines a light on the different genres of music, celebrating the history and spirit of Overtown in its heyday.
On October 1, 2011 the Overtown Music Project invites you to put on your swankiest outfit and join them as they pay tribute to the greatest African American entertainers of the era and all juke joints that lined the streets of Overtown as they come one step closer to bringing the music back permanently to Overtown and funding its jazz and blues residency in the historic Lyric Theater.
