For the first time in years, the band's new material sounds tired and worn
A playful parody on "Winter Wonderland" geared to Bon Jovi's keyboardist
Rock group Black Vendetta's "Tennis Girl" is a soft rock mid tempo track that lures you in with a creative video in which a black and white visual of an "animated" person is seen in various stages of thought, as well as having a smoke and holding up placards giving information about the band. Technology is at its coolest in this fun and very entertaining way of enjoying "Tennis Girl". The lead vocalist has the perfect voice for the track, and the song is catchy with great breaks and hooks, backed up nicely by guitar strumming and bass. This is one cut that will get into your head, and you'll love every minute of it.

Sugar Baron, the electro-rock trio from Pontiac, Michigan have learned a lot in the year they’ve been together as a band. From releasing a full length album, to booking their own tour and shows, the band embodies the DIY spirit to the nth degree. I recently sat down with the band to talk about lessons learned on the road, plans for a future record, and the importance of sleep.
“Jan slept from Novi, Michigan, all the way to Delaware. No, wait, New Jersey.” Ryan Weber (Guitars/Vocals) explains. “Delaware takes about 20 minutes to drive through” Randy Nelsen(Keyboards/Vocals) chimes in. Jan Kruszewski (Vocals/Keyboards) laughs them off, “I don’t think the guys understand how important sleep is. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I was able to play a show in New York the next day well rested, which really is the most important thing to me, especially when you’re in a van all day.”
“We were in Illinois and we got a flat tire and had to wait 9 hours for U-Haul to fix it in the parking lot of a mold infested $39 dollar hotel. We slept in the van. Our tour manager was the only one to sleep inside.” Randy explains, “It happened in New York. Some lady in a brand new BMW basically hit us and kept on going. We didn’t even realize it until Illinois. New York is weird, you’ll see all these super nice cars with scratches and dents and no one cares.” Jan adds, “Ryan almost fought a garbage man, too. It was fun.”
However, the best shows for them were in the home territory of the Midwest. According to Jan, “Madison was one of the funnest shows we had on the tour, even though no one showed up. We just bonded with the other bands, partied in the basement with the sound guy, like, no one gave of a fuck.” Randy goes on further, “Don’t book a show in Wisconsin with a bunch of out of town bands. Make sure you invite a local.”
“Kalamazoo was a fun show as well.” Jan says as he sips a beer. It should be noted that the band insisted we conduct the interview at a bar. “It was nice to see the fan base there. We played in a packed basement called The Courthouse that a bunch of guys from DIT Kalamazoo (http://www.ditkalamazoo.com) put on. It’s a bunch of student housing that they deem show houses. The kids knew all the words, it was ass to nuts packed.” Ryan adds “We sold like $250 worth of merch at a house show. It was crazy. We could hear the kids more than we could hear ourselves out of our monitors.”
“We were treated like rockstars up there, everyone was buying Jan shots, he blacked out.”
A lot of learning was done on the road as well. Ryan learned to not try and drive a van with a trailer in the middle of Times Square during rush hour. Jan learned to not take every shot he’s offered, and to not sweat the small stuff, “a lot of things went wrong on this tour, but I think that we became closer because of it.”
Almost immediately after returning home, Sugar Baron isn’t taking any time off. Jan explains, “We’re planning on releasing our next record in February. We’re really excited and we’re moving forward in our style and following a cohesive sound which is the next evolution of our music.” Randy adds “our last record was like building blocks, we used a lot of elements on top of one another to build the songs, this one is much more organic.”
“The last record also followed a story line, where as this one is much more personal and about the things that happened to all of us in our personal lives.”
Sugar Baron’s debut album “Monet on the Dance Floor” is available on iTunes now, and will be launching a full US tour early 2013.

A playful remake of Gene Autry's ' Here Comes Santa Claus'
Harmonic Generator's "Nobody Dies" is a heavy metal heavy hitter. With a funky groove, banging bass, and a lead singer who was born to sing metal, this track is the epitome of cool. A great video is always the perfect complement to a great song, and this one doesn't fail to please. It's a full color, well produced performance of the song, and there's enough energy and friction in it to light up a city. The band is outstanding and the video is captivating, thrilling, sexy, and a little dangerous, but remember - "Nobody Dies". Recorded and produced at Thirty Mill Studio in Melbourne Australia by Mark Opitz and Colin Wynne, the video was shot in Marseille France by Akil of Jam City Productions.
