Prospector woos us tonight at Fontana’s with the release of their album Between 0 & 1. Won’t you be their Valentine?
In the face of a current trend of pastelled indie/folksy/retroverb/beach-wave, Prospector spits sexy black gasoline rock and lights it up. Prospector is a fucking band / An NYC band / A don’t let your daughter see this band, kinda band – especially on Valentines Day.
Between 0 & 1 has been one of the most anticipated releases in the LES/Brooklyn scene as Prospector’s addicted following has been amassing since the band formed in 2008. And all those turned heads will agree that the wait was worth it ’cause Between 0 & 1 just crushes forward and will leave you saying (in the words of John Norris) “Oh yeah, that’s what rock sounds like”.
For a good time, call on Prospector tonight: (THERE’S NO REASON TO BE ALONE)

spradosphere is proud to present its first ever guest curator.
Regina Rossi | is no stranger to spradosphere.com; she’s been an instrumental proponent in getting this site off the ground, so it seems only fitting that she be the one to carve the way for the upcoming series of guest MixTapes. Her dedication to the Scene, to Music, to Style is active, voracious and methodical. However, to truly describe her might best be left to hear for yourself, since, in her own words, “Beyond Dark Space is personal”.
BEYOND DARK SPACE covers a landscape that spans a unique auditorial palate as insatiable as it is final. Dark | Electric | Loud | Synthetic | Zoned | Beat | Sexy | Severe.
…they are this kick ass rock force that have been ripping up the LES music scene for a while now AND they are tucked in that sweet pocket that’s always best kept secret. They take dark stages late at night and crank out bangin’ red-light gasoline rock.
Now, Louis C.K. is a comedian that I love with all my heart. He’s a comedian’s comedian that pulls inspiration and material from the ordinary, the mundane, the overlooked, the regular, and the forgettable tossed-out moments of life. Enlightened, Philosophical, Deep, VULGAR as all hell and pure Genius…Furthermore, he’s got superb taste in music. The other night he featured these guys on his show LOUIE BUT they didn’t get any credit whatsoever, so I’d like to do my part. I figure if they didn’t get any recognition, then I can feature their clip from the show with a clear conscience.
you can hear the full version of that song below…
I’ve been hooked since back when they were called Doppelganger and I can’t wait for them to release their first LP Between 0 & 1 on November 3rd, at the John Varvatos Bowery location - if you RSVP now via firstname.lastname@example.org you can scoop up a digital download of the album at the show for a special pre release price of 5 bucks.
If you ever have the opportunity to catch them live, you’d be wrong to pass it up. Don’t ever be wrong.
For eyeball stimulation and for the love of god, check out these LIVE SHOTS of them all lit up in RED. Just do it.
This makes 1o.
There’s a love story in here if you can find it.
Get your rose colored love explosion soundtrack on. Break it open, Swim in it, Watch it burrrn…out?
*We hear a lot more now than we ever have before and that creates a challenge. Songs are taking on a shorter shelf life if they’re even being heard at all. OBSOLESCED is a transition that ranges from immediately old songs to legitimately old songs. Nothing “new” to discover here but rather the space between the recent past to the timelessly loved.

This is #vii or FLow. It’s a playlist without any tags or information regarding who or what the songs are. Nothing. It’s an experiment on being interesting. I’m in Florida at the moment and this state has always been a puzzle to me, so, I guess, it’s inspired by that. Also, I figure the less information one has to go by, the more you might pay attention. IDK.
If you’re dying to know, just ask.
Sidewalk Driver cares about you. This Boston band never lets me down. As described by one of the best front men out there today (Tad McKitterick) -”Seeing one of our live shows is like catching Lady Gaga giving David Bowie a hand-job on the surface of the sun.”
