CSS Show, Seattle ( 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

While nothing can compare to the fondness one has to their hometown, the temptation to live in sunny and glamorous Los Angeles is hard to resist. Some of LA’s newest residents include the ladies of CSS; natives of Brazil, they have temporarily set up residence to record their new album Planta and to prepare for their upcoming US summer tour, hitting many East and West coast cities in June and July.

But before they hit the road CSS has released their new office space dance party of a video for “Hangover”, choreographed by Toni Basil of “Oh Mickey” fame and also directed by Basil and Matt Dilmore. You can watch and share the video HERE.

Songs like "Hangover" stand emblematic of the enigmatic style they collectively harnessed. Co-written with Rancid's Tim Armstrong, it straddles the lines between pop, dance, and punk, while never losing its edge or cheeky sense of humor with lines equating hangovers and heartbreaks.

"It's about being young and having fun," Ana admits. "We hooked up with Tim, and we talked about how much we love reggae and reggaeton. It doesn't necessarily sound like that, but we came up with something that anybody can move to."

 

That energy courses through Planta from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener "Honey" to the tambourine dream of "Faith in Love." In many ways, the album's boundlessness has been CSS's goal since the beginning. Other stand-outs included "Dynamite" featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip.

CSS fans will get their chance to see “Hangover”, “Honey” and the band’s many more danceable tracks this summer on their June and July US tour.

San Francisco,CA-Bjork Biophilia Live Show ( 8:00 am )

BJÖRK ADDS THIRD HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM BIOPHILIA LIVE SHOW NEW 2013 LIVE DATES INCLUDE IN-THE-ROUND PERFORMANCES AND EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS Björk recently added a third Hollywood Palladium Biophilia live show on June 8 to her upcoming set of North American dates this summer, which also include three shows in San Francisco. The Hollywood Palladium and the Craneway Pavillion in San Francisco have been set to Björk’s original Biophilia specifications as audio-visual shows in an intimate, in-the-round setting. In addition to her Biophilia performances Björk will also appear at the Hollywood Bowl on June 2 and at Echo Beach in Toronto on July 16 along with three festival appearances: headlining the eighth annual Pitchfork Festival on July 19, Bonnaroo on June 15, and the RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa on July 13. Tickets for the North American shows are available here: http://bit.ly/14ClQxr. Please see below for a complete list of dates.

 

Björk’s Biophilia Education Program, a series of interactive workshops designed teach students about the relationships between music, science and technology, has been held in Manchester, Reykjavík, Oslo, Buenos Aires, New York and Paris and is now coming to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Björk's San Francisco concerts, running Wednesday May 22 through Thursday May 28, are in collaboration with the Exploratorium, the world's foremost hands-on museum of science, art and human phenomena, now located at Pier 15 along the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Using the Biophilia App Suite as a focus point, Exploratorium scientists and educators will align a project to each of the 10 songs included, creating a workshop series that engages students both in music and science with creativity, exploration and discovery. The singer will also be collaborating with MOCA to bring the workshops to students in Los Angeles in June. These workshops are funded through sponsors and the sale of VIP tickets to the Biophilia shows.

 

The 2013 tour dates follow a worldwide series of live performances which first premiered in 2011 at the Manchester International Festival (MIF) in England in what The Wall Street Journal called a “magical evening,” followed by a sold out residency in Björk’s hometown of Reykjavik, Iceland. Further shows have included New York, Buenos Aires and most recently Paris, along with festival performances in Europe and South America. Featuring a set of unique musical instruments including a MIDI-controlled pipe organ and twin musical Tesla coils, KEXP hailed the performance as “enchanting and unforgettable…in the live setting, Björk and her Biophilia ecosystem pulsated, blossomed and flourished.” The show also features an award-winning 24-piece Icelandic female choir and visuals from the Biophilia apps. Björk has collaborated with app developers, scientists, writers, inventors, musicians, and instrument makers to create a unique multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces—particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet. The project is inspired by and explores these relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic. “Biophilia’s songs are astounding,” NPR said. “These songs have room to breathe, employing space and silence as much as melody and harmony. The sparse instrumentation and arrangements become gorgeously intricate meditations on which to build...vocal melodies unfurl more like transcendent devotionals than typical verses, and become even more stirring when accompanied by a chorus of voices that could fill a cathedral.” Each performance features songs from Biophilia, Björk’s most interdisciplinary project to date. Stereogum said that “Biophilia is one of 2011’s best releases…the songwriting is sharp, the feel immediate and enveloping.” The 10-track album, out now on Nonesuch/One Little Indian, is available digitally, in CD format and on vinyl. Additionally, each of the 10 songs is available as a special feature of the Biophilia App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Biophilia was named one of 2011’s Best Apps by Apple and landed on year-end best-of lists from NME, Mojo, The Observer, and Uncut, among others. The latest version is available through In-App Purchase, exclusively at iTunes and the App Store. Recently Biophilia won “Best Recording Packaging” at the 55th annual Grammy Awards.

But before they hit the road CSS has released their new office space dance party of a video for “Hangover”, choreographed by Toni Basil of “Oh Mickey” fame and also directed by Basil and Matt Dilmore. You can watch and share the video HERE.

Songs like "Hangover" stand emblematic of the enigmatic style they collectively harnessed. Co-written with Rancid's Tim Armstrong, it straddles the lines between pop, dance, and punk, while never losing its edge or cheeky sense of humor with lines equating hangovers and heartbreaks.

"It's about being young and having fun," Ana admits. "We hooked up with Tim, and we talked about how much we love reggae and reggaeton. It doesn't necessarily sound like that, but we came up with something that anybody can move to."

 

That energy courses through Planta from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener "Honey" to the tambourine dream of "Faith in Love." In many ways, the album's boundlessness has been CSS's goal since the beginning. Other stand-outs included "Dynamite" featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip.

CSS fans will get their chance to see “Hangover”, “Honey” and the band’s many more danceable tracks this summer on their June and July US tour.
