The Boys Who Own Me

I tried to wait longer to blog about these boys, but what’s the point? They are my life, my saving grace, my… owners.

Julien-K. Awesomeness at it’s finest. These guys are an up-an-coming band from Southern California who blend rock and electronica in a unique and awesome way. Before you start groaning about a “lame electro band” hear me out.

This is electronic rock in a NEW way. It’s not the kind of electronic music that makes you want to put your hair in pigtails, pop a bunch of E and touch everyone and everything. Well, maybe it is for YOU, but that just goes against your character, not these boys.

This is their video for their first single “Kick The Bass” off their debut album DEATH TO ANALOG (Click here to buy their debut album: Death To Analog (Limited Edition) (2-Disc) or Death to Analog)

That’s the CLEAN VERSION. Yeah, these boys are down and dirty. And that’s just how we like them!

Death to Analog is a SUPERB album, one that I anticipated for YEARS ever since I heard of these guys back in 2004. All us core fans waited through dozens of “Coming Soon!” announcements, and a lot of us actually cried when this album came out.

I’ve seen these guys **counts** 5 times, and I’ve traveled an insane amount to do so. I’ve seen them in Virginia (10 hour drive), Boston (1 hour drive), Rhode Island (1 1/2 hours), Connecticut (1 hour), and most recently I FLEW ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO LOS ANGELES to see their first show of the year.

To say I love this band is an understatement. They’ve saved my life, but that’s not a story for this blog. It’s private and sappy and you don’t want to hear about it.

Moving right along, these guys will actually be touring with Combichrist this summer, and kicking the tour off with some local SoCal shows. You should definitely check out Julien-K’s MySpace for the tour dates and check them out.

Okay…. I should just shut up now.
