From Vanyland Premier!

It’s been about nine months since we last got a new single from Party Bois. We don’t need to tell you this, but that’s how long it takes to make a baby.

A baby.

Today, the Boston-based dance party machine return with twins — two new purely romantical jams, just in time for their show Friday night at Bearstronaut’s record release throwdown at the Sinclair in Cambridge.

The a-side, “True Confessional” is their very own “La Isla Bonita” — a tropical synth-pop shake and bake that tattoos its “Wha oh oh ohhh!” refrain on the inside of your lips. The flip, the more mechanical “Hit The Coast” is what happens when you make out too much in the back of your JEEP after a weekday at Revere Beach. If they ever made a sequel to Top Gun, this will soundtrack the long-anticipated beach volleyball rematch.

“It’s all about summer romance,” Party Bois frontman J-Boi tells us. “That was the theme. ‘True Confessional’ is the starry night song; ‘Coast’ is the sunny beach song.”

Lather up.

NAN ABEIt’s been a long time coming and the time is night!

New Alliance North is Officially available for rental as an authentic creative space for making electronic music.  What makes New Alliance North special is a focus on real time music creation.  It’s a place to bring your laptop and record in a way that is free from the DAW that lurks within the screen.

All machines in the studio are synced via a master tempo clock in the analog domain with a Roland XBS 80.

This box allows all devices to be in sync and play in real time together.  Even better is that you can stop and play and device independently of the others!  Want the TR808 to be one half measure late to create a new rhythm?  Hit play whenever you want!

Another great performance device is Garfield Electronics Mini-doc.  There’s a few of these wired up for mapping arpeggiator clock to any synth that can see it!
