Ladytron is easily one of today's foremost electroclash ensembles, and for very good reason. These Liverpoolians (?) really know how to give an atmosphere to their music, and they put on one heck of a live show. Today I'll be serving up a live track from KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic series with Ladytron performing "Destroy Everything You Touch" back on May 4th. This puppy reached #42 on the British charts last year, but is certainly more deserving than that. It's an awesome song from the band's most recent endeavor, Witching Hour (which you can buy at their store). You can check out the stream at www.kcrw.com. Check out the video for "Destroy Everything You Touch" here, and then head over to their MySpace page and be their friend!

Good news for those of you who live in the New York area. Chris Garneau, one of Stage Hymn's heroes will be performing this coming Friday night (May 26th) in The Listening Room at Bruckner Bar in the Bronx. The show starts at 8pm, and also features the talents of The Lisps, Most Other People Do the Killing!, and the debut of Dave Lerner's (of Pharmacists) new band Spectacular Birds. Head over to TheLisps.com for directions.
Want to know the best part? Oh! You already guessed it? The show is completely free! How can you beat that? You can't! So stop trying already!!! You should check out The Lisps' MySpace page and give "Pepper Spray" a listen. It's one spectacular song!
Tomorrow, hopefully an interview. Until then, my lovelies...
