KEEP AN EYE ON THESE TWO: These two unsigned acts have songs featured on the new FMQB SubModern #012 -- a trade mag sampler that goes out to Rock and Alternative radio Stateside. It'll be interesting to see if they find some fans out there...FMQB's samplers usually don't feature music from unsigned acts.
MAXIMILLION (unsigned) -- Five-piece based in Hollywood, CA. Spending the early Summer in Rome, Italy recording their debut LP and will return to L.A. to have it mixed/mastered. A U.S. mini-tour will follow beginning in August. For fans of Editors, The Cure, Muse. "The Cell" is the featured track on the FMQB disc.
MAN ON EARTH (unsigned) -- Quartet from New York -- Had some success with their 2005 LP titled Disposable Sounds For The Fickle Mind at college radio and with film/TV synchs. Recently recorded a new album with producer Ken Lewis -- "Something Better" is the group's song that's been placed on FMQB SubModern #012. Decent edgy post-Brit-Pop.
