The best kept secret in music

The Song Corporation's music seems to integrate new elements in an already pretty noise (and exciting) formula - a sprinkle of pop, an interest for complicated guitar plots, and a tad bit of bossanova.

Their set was great, evenly divided between some pretty sweet mellow jams (think late period Sonic Youth)..and some more upbeat numbers. That last one about maps was especially great.

Their show was a blast…and they had all kinds of people dancing and grooving along… a bunch of people got up on stage with the band…Yeah, I’ll be going to see them again soon – one Song Corporation show made me a fan.

Their final number, a hedonistic B-52's piece that saw vocals coming from a large man hanging from a pipe doing a Les Savy Fav impression. A call to stage dancing arms was happily taken up… and it resulted in a triumphant close.

[‘Raisin Bran in the Sun’] leaves you feeling that The Song Corporation might just be the band that kicks the door open…These are all smart songs, nailed to the wall with crisp musicianship.

’Raisin Bran in the Sun’ is made to be a rock radio novelty hit, with both clever pop references and a surly attitude.

-MS - Punk Planet


I like the guitar that wanders like Miles Davis through the below decks – the quiet one, the one underneath the verses…The best pop song to ever have been inspired by Hannah Arendt’s ‘The Origins of Totalitarianism,’ this is democracy and its collapse - accompanied by a guitar solo…Yes. From the Song Corporation’s new 3-song EP.

The opening track, ‘Raisin Bran in the Sun,’ starts off hinging on this bass line that will turn you over and smack you square on the ass. ‘Soothing Sugar’ and ‘The Bug Speaks’ impressively channel recent Sonic Youth and early-80s Clash respectively, but it’s ‘Raisin Bran…’ that stands out as a signature track. Our only beef: we want more.

Bio

The Song Corporation is barely contained exaggeration.

Sometimes in the form of ridiculous pop hooks, sometimes pitch-shifted feedback, sometimes ridiculous cacophony, sometimes samba chords over a shuffle beat, sometimes whispered, sometimes shouted.

Plus, pounding on things, cheap plastic toys, songs about made-up people and songs about real people.

It consists of four people who met through Ohio ConneXion and now live in New York. They have a tendency to laugh at things they should not and to be noisier than is strictly necessary.

They released the “Raisin Bran EP” in 2005 and are currently working on a full-length album.
