A FANCY WEEK



Seems as how we don’t have many interviews coming up (I mean surely you must have read that Chromeo interview a dozen times right about now!!) I thought that I’d use this week to invigorate interest in what is qualified as an “underrated” band that was lost among the muddle of the French touch scene, and that band you ask? FANCY!

Fancy are a glam rock band from France consisting of members MOM (Guitars & Background vocals), RAE MONE (Bass guitars & Background vocals) and their most noted and outrageous of them all Jessie CHATON.

To best describe Fancy is imagine a formula of The Sweet, Gary Glitter (ignoring the pedophilia of course) mixed in with every afro styled lead with a out there fashion sense to boot.

Oh and Speaking of Jessie, his voice has a unique tone and color behind it. Just picture Cedric from The Mars Volta only 10 octaves higher.

So…you maybe asking yourself “why should I give a shit about these guys then?” Well, I did mention they were highly underrated early. Their debut album was in 2006 and France at that time was only mostly listening to Daft Punk and later on JUSTICE (as Fancy did end up playing support of them on their American tour) which is a same cause the guys have all the elements to be a success (see the artwork and logo as proof!)

Another question you maybe asking is “Why have you got a vested interest in them?” And to answer that, they were lingering in the back of my mind as well as a select few that pondered “What the hell happened?!!”

Well the good news is, they’re still around and I got to talk to Jessie over the weekend after his manager recommended a friend request to our Facebook page.

Think of what we’re doing is being the superfans that we are and wanting to help out as much as we can to their cause…. how you ask? Well this week we will aggregate their entire catalog of tunes that are listed on their Soundcloud for a whole week on the Hype Machine.

We’ll do our best to keep you Fancy fans updated as to what the band will do next and if you “FANCY” an interest in them, check out their socials and various supplemental links

STINT beautifully flips Q-Tip’s “Work It Out” (best known for his work with Lana Del Rey & Banks)


STINT, also known as Ajay Bhattacharyya from Vancouver/Los Angeles, has managed to unwillingly stay under the radar for quite some time. This year, however, will be his breakthrough year; with some interesting, high profile collaborations planned, the future is promising. But at the end of the day, the recognition will be due to his superior production technique. There is a good chance you’ve listened to some of his material without even knowing.

Known for working with Lana Del Rey & Banks, just a few we can name right now, big things are in store for the rising producer and it won’t be long before you will be hearing much more of his name.

DJ Aiden Jude – Tonight (official video)


“Alright, this is where we put away the high ratings and get down to the garbage dump of zeros. DJ Aiden Jude is a 10 year old EDM producer…..let that sink in while you come to a realization as to what generation you’re in. Okay? And……go! This is truly a work of douche bag trash. So predictable the arrangement that you can probably buy half the sample packs to compose this piece of utter worthless, sonic abomination. Go back to school little boy and eat your cookies and milk like all good kids should” -NERDYS TAKE

SEREN MYAMOTO #nerdyplaysgoodmusic

“Ms. SEREN MYAMOTO vocals does remind me of Keli Ali from Sneaker Pimps (remember them) and the beat arrangement is tailored well to suit her. Hmmmm I want in on this!” -NERDYS TAKE

Electronic recording artist Seren Myamoto possesses the pop sensibilities of artists such as Gwen Stefani and Madonna and the left-field musical talents of Bjork and Nine Inch Nails. But what is it about her unique style that attracts the attention of pop-lovers, musos and gamers?

KAIROS – StreetLights (Kanye West) #nerdyplaysgoodmusic


“KAIROS does Kanye’s single justice by injecting soul and heart. This deserves a great rating!” -NERDYS TAKE

Frame-Rating-5-5

Underneath the autotune, Kanye West’s “Street Lights” is an uplifting moment in the midst of his darkest album — and KAIROS’ cover perfectly captures the inspiration. KAIROS adds acoustic flare and show-stopping vocals (sans autotune) in her rousing version of “StreetLights,” setting the stage for the May 20th release of her self-titled EP on Fin Records.

Fin Records was inspired by Black Sparrow Press, the tiny publisher that took a chance on Charles Bukowski. Fin believes in treating every artists with respect, to be transparent in its business dealings, and to give complete creative control. Each limited edition Fin recording is beautifully made and packaged, and each artist is selected for their unique sound and message.
