      Real Estate

      The words after the backslash at their MySpace are "Let's Rock The Beach," but Real Estate are more about the lovably down-and-out Jersey Shore than a pristine Caribbean. The quartet mention Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood NY, Jersey City, and Brooklyn as their location (that's two out of four, which counts), the Boss and "New Jersey" itself as influences. On top of that, their MySpace Top 8 includes Titus Andronicus and the Ridgewood, NJ Real Estater Matt Mondanile also records as Ducktails, and therein has a song called "Beach Point Pleasant." So, see, we're making shit up with that Jersey Shore claim. Beyond geography, songs like "Suburban Beverage" mix languid psychedelia, muted vocals, a boomy undertow of drums, and jammy repetitions that somehow conjure fellow Garden State crew the Feelies (then again, that could just be because of how they look). It makes sense they mention the Clean as an influence, less so the Beach Boys, unless it's about the sand. Maybe it's best to call it a sunsetting, less ethereal Galaxie 500, but before it gets too dark. Forming late 2008 around charismatic guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley (son of much-missed Paul Kelly & the Dots member Maurice Frawley) and bassist Rick Milovanovic, Twerps have quickly risen to become one of Melbourne’s favourite pop bands. They’ve scored support slots for the likes of Deerhunter, the Bats, Yo La Tengo, Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees and Robert Forster.

      They play their own brand of warm and incredibly infectious pop, with elements of the 80s Flying Nun sound and 90s lo-fi. Marty’s cheeky but heartfelt songs are complemented by the crystalline guitar lines of guitarist Julia MacFarlane (ex Batrider) and the sympathetic percussion of drummer Patrick O’Neill. My Body Sings Electric is a band that demands your attention. Whether it’s through crystal clear album production or dynamic live shows, they make sure you understand when it comes to their music, they are all business.

      In the last year, My Body Sings Electric has released a full length album “Changing Color” to a sold-out hometown crowd, recorded their single “Step Into The Light” at the legendary Blasting Room (Rise Against, Less Than Jake), earned consistent local radio play, and gained state-wide recognition as they placed in the top 3 during KTCL 93.3’s “Hometown for the Holidays” competition.

      In winter of 2010, the band traveled to Portland, OR to record their debut album at Interlace Audio (Dance Gavin Dance, Johnny Craig, Fear Before). The investment has paid off as the band has played to packed houses since the album release.

      That’s not bad for a group of self-managed, self-funded Denver music scene misfits, but they have higher goals in mind. The successes of the past year have only gone to make the band hungrier, and they show no signs of slowing down soon.
