THE LONG TANGLES

“A drum/synth/vox Indie Pop/Indie Rock/Matrimony Rock duo. Blessed or cursed (depending on perspective) with the look and similar line-up of “Mates of State,” The Long Tangles produce a sound uniquely their own. Multi-toned synth and keyboard bass tones interwine with fiery and vigorous drumming to lay a strong foundation for alluring lyrics and layered melodies.”
>> The Austin Chronicle

SEASONS

“Highland Park’s Seasons really pile on the shimmering keyboards, fuzz-heavy guitars, saturated synths, loads of effects pedals and an occasional beating laptop, accordion or harmonica riffing in the background. Their sound is full and showy, building up to great heights then lilting low into soft, cuddly breakdowns.”
>> LA Weekly

GOOGLE MUSIC Launches… Download Music from Overhead Now!

17 Nov

After much anticipation, Google Music launched its download store last night! An online music digital locker service for desktop browsers and Android devices, Google Music allows users to store and play up to 20,000 songs for free, including music from OVERHEAD RECORDS artists!

What’s great about the service  is  that when you purchase a track or album through Google Music, you can share your tracks through Google+. The person with whom you share the track can listen to the track once without purchasing the song, after which he/she will be prompted to purchase.

Now, go ahead and take it for a test drive at music.google.com and download music from Overhead Records through the Android Market now!
