Deaf Country

Somewhere out there between spacey bedroom mixes and electropop music there is Deaf Country. It is the project of this dude Grant from Boston---Electro bit sounds and water delays, the vocals and drums and synths all blend together in a really nice way----He has a really cool remix of Broken Social Scene's "Anthems for a 17 Year-Old Girl on his myspace page definitely worth checking out. If you liked Oh Fortuna or Magic Man this may be for you.

Deaf Country - The Sound Is The Sound

Grant describes Deaf Country with...

".. if autotune takes the soul out of a song, then that's what i want. i'm grant, aka deaf country. the name came to me in a dream, i think. i'm really good at grilling food. my interests include frost, echoey stairwells, and gold. i make all this music to have fun in my room. thank you all all all "

Farms is the project of two guys named Ben and Andy from Wisconsin. We met them at Total Bummer, really awesome guys. On their myspace they are described in this way:

One member of FARMS has a fully functional synthesizer in his head and holds his mouth a little open like a third ear. One member of FARMS is a fucking 'showboat' who works drums like a middle schooler trying to show an older girl his 'passion' or how good he is at making out. One is a pleasant, video game psychic and one applies corporeal metaphors to like everything, and then smiles. FARMS is a Wisconsin band, because sometimes there is nothing else to do here/there than take drugs and go into woods or drive on interstates. They play in a basement with a coal chute and a bat. They are part of Δ collective.

They've just released a video for their song "We Gotta Box Of White Tape Snakes" and they are in the process of booking a month long east coast tour in June.
