Gig Alert and Bonus MP3s: Hear "Static Waves" by Andrew Belle and "Blame it On the Rain" from He and We and Check Both Out Tonight at The Prophet Bar
Certainly on the conservative side on the indie-rock spectrum, Belle's songs are nonetheless sparkling examples of what pop can be when it's not subjugated to flash over substance (see Lady Gaga).
Plus Belle was cool enough to send over a free MP3 of a song from The Ladder. The tune is called "Static Waves" and it features Katie Herzig.
But there's more.
Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly are the nucleus of He is We. Together, these two Tacoma, Washington, songsmiths are touring with Belle and they too have graciously offered an MP3 for DC-9 readers. The song is an acoustic demo called "Blame it on the Rain" (and no, it's not a Milli Vanilli cover).
You can check out both songs after the jump.
