The Disco Biscuits Unveil "On Time" Video

The Disco Biscuits have just released video for “On Time,” a breezy and infectious electro-pop anthem from their latest album, Planet Anthem. This new video, which made its debut  on MTV2 and MTU, was directed by Noah Rappaport and Ghost Town Media. It follows the sexual escapades of a skinny disco robot on a wild night on the town.Planet Anthem, which was released on March 16th, debuted at #140 on the Billboard Top 200 and #5 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.



On the new album, The Disco Biscuits break out of the jam band-meets-electronica sound they have been known for.  This time around, they’ve opted for danceable pop and rock grooves, plus a touch of hip hop thanks to collaborating with producers Don Cheegro and Dirty Harry (Ludacris, Chris Brown, Beanie Sigel).



The Disco Biscuits also recently announced the lineup for the two annual festivals they put on.  Bisco Inferno will take place on May 29th at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO.   In addiction to the Biscuits, headliners include The Glitch Mob and The Crystal Method.  Camp Bisco 9, the band’s ninth annual three-day music and arts festival, will be held in Mariaville, New York from July 15-17th. The Disco Biscuits will perform all three nights, and other headliners include LCD Soundsystem, Ween, Girl Talk, and Major Lazer. As true road warriors, The Disco Biscuits have a slew of additional dates throughout the US.

Lookout Farm 35th Anniversary at Birdland

The 1974 septet release entitled Lookout Farm distinguished saxophonist Dave Liebman as a rising bandleader and top-notch improviser. Along with Liebman, the collective featured Richie Beirach on piano, John Abercrombie on guitar, East Indian percussionists Badal Roy and Armen Halburian, drummer Jeff Williams, and upright bassist Frank Tusa. With this all-star lineup and the production values of ECM’s award-winning Manfred Eicher, Lookout Farm gained iconic status in modern jazz as it pushed the limits of how far a group could go artistically while still maintaining a definitive identity. For this special four-day run, Liebman reunites with original members Beirach and Williams, along with later member, bassist Ron McClure to mark the 35th anniversary of this one of a kind ensemble and recording..
