Seattle Weekly
This year’s CMJ Fest in New York City is going on now, and SPIN magazine has added their two cents about who is the best of the fest. Seattle’s own Champagne Champagne made the cut in their list of the top 30 bands performing at the festival. They describe the music as “Experimental hip-hop that balances smart-ass party anthems with poetic soliloquies. With the mission of making ‘feel good music,’ this trio–Pearl Dragon, Sir Thomas Gray, and Mark Gajadhar, aka DJ Gajamagic– pair the electronic flourishes of Portishead and the attitude of Bad Brains with drum-machine beats, tambourine, keyboards and melodica.”
