Music for the Week: FLASHCLASH, PHANTASMAGORIA, AUTUMN WOLF, and THE HOUNDS BELOW

Phantasmagoria

The blog, Hip in Detroit put on a show this past Saturday that sent us on a nice musical trip. FLASHCLASH, Phantasmagoria, Autumn Wolf and The Hounds Below  played over in Ferndale at The Magic Bag and Hip in Detroit’s Sadie Q was our hostess for the evening.

All the acts seemed to have a great time on stage, they kept us dancing and belting out some lyrics. The night ended with some trippy, seductive, visuals from FLASHCLASH. You missed the show you say?! Well, don’t fret check out the links above and listen to the tunes. We also have some dates below so you can see these bands live.

Passalacqua

Group: Passalacqua

Members: Blaksmith and Mister

(Interview begins: 14:55)

Passalacqua came into the studio for a chat on their music, ice cream, and the meaning of “prop-hop”. Passalacqua has an underground sound that shows signs of Old School hip/hop with a bit of funk dashed in.  If you are in need of a live performance that will leave you wondering, “what is happening?”, “I need this music”, then this is your group. On stage members Blaksmith, and Mister don some pretty nifty masks and some other surprises but you will have to check them out for the details.

Passalacqua had their record release of their collaboration with Detroit’s Duende this weekend, and released their video for “Been A Minute” earlier in September.

Check out their site for downloads and great tunes
