Stolen Transmission is an independent joint venture label between accomplished A&R man, Robert Stevenson and Island Records. It is a trendsetting new record label and on-line community built for a new generation of music thirsty kids. Combining the back-end resources of “major label” and the DIY ethics and ambition of an indie label, Stolen Transmission offers its bands and fans the best of both worlds. Their aim is to not only discover, develop and showcase the most promising artists in the country but to also build a truly supportive, creative and (most importantly) fun community around this label and the bands. Artists currently on the Stolen Transmission roster include: Monty Are I, Permanent ME, The Oohlas, Bright Light Fever, The Horrors and The Photo Atlas.
Permanent ME is a band of 20 year old kids who were reared in the long shadow of fellow Long Island emo-alumni such as Brand New and Taking Back Sunday but have managed to synthesize those modern influences into crisp classic pop sound. Permanent ME have toured with Cartel and will be on tour with FALL OUT BOY in January 2007 and Cartel in February 2007. Their debut record, After The Room Clears, will be released on 1/23/07.
Monty Are I is a five piece from Rhode Island with an undeniably blistering live show and progressive sensibilities that somehow marry the anthemic melodies of Guns and Roses with the ambitious styling of bands like Muse and Mars Volta. Monty Are I have been on tour since July with bands such as Rx Bandits, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Story of the Year and currently have their music featured in Tony Hawk’s Project 8 video game. Monty Are I’s debut release, Wall Of People, came out on Stolen Transmission on 8/1/06.
The Oohlas are a tremendous four piece from Los Angeles, California which create a classic sound without with the dirty yet accessible production sensibilities of the mid-nineties alternative rock. They have beautiful melodies, interesting arrangements, and sophisticated writing that will no doubt invoke flattering comparisons to bands such as Belly, Veruca Salt, Weezer and perhaps the Breeders. The Oohlas have been featured in Teen Vogue, Alternative Press, SPIN and were a featured artist on the home page of MySpace during the release week of their debut LP, Best Stop Pop in September of 2006.
Bright Light Fever features a 19 year old songwriter, Evan Ferro who has potential that’s nearly unmatched in the current climate of music. He writes songs that are both immediately engaging and yet entirely pensive. There are danceable rhythms, story-based lyrics, warm and passionate vocals, and a rawness in the motive and songwriting that is arresting for any listener. Stolen Transmission released Bright Light Fever’s debut LP The Evening Owl on October 24th, 2006.
The Horrors are Britain’s latest sensation and have been featured on the cover of London’s biggest music magazine, NME as well as being featured in SPIN and on MTV’s new music program, You Hear It First. They’re shows are dark, frenetic and captivating, as the band draws from such deep influences as The Cramps, Nick Cave and The Stooges. The Horrors have a self-titled EP that came out on Stolen Transmission October 24th 2006.
The Photo Atlas is Denver CO’s newest and best rock band. They’re a four piece with a blistering dance punk sound that blends the modern energy of bands like Panic! At The Disco and The Rapture with the classic aggression of Fugazi. The Photo Atlas’ debut LP No, Not Me, Never will be released by Stolen Transmission on 2/13/07.
PlayRadioPlay! is a one man electro-pop project by a remarkable Seventeen year old boy from Aledo, TX. PRP! masterfully blends synth pop beats with gentle and delicate indie rock, and although PRP! is a Christian based project, it’s no doubt PlayRadioPlay!’s charming lyrics and warm melodies that have garned the project so much attention. Previously listed as Myspace.com’s top unsigned artist, PlayRadioPlay! currently has over 4.5 million official listens and 1.3 million profile views. PRP! will have a debut record released in 2007.
