[new]: Black Light Dinner Party – Leave It All

By Will Oliver, April 19th 2012

Black Light Dinner Party haven’t even released an album yet, but after “Older Together” and “Gold Chain”, I know that I can consistently except quality songs from them. Their first release of 2012 is “Leave It All”, a dance-electronic song with a strong sense of sincerity and heart.

The band’s debut album is currently in the works. They will be doing some shows this summer. But first, they are playing at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn on May 3. Tickets can be found here.

Listen to “Leave It All” below.

Black Light Dinner Party – Gold Chain

By Will Oliver, November 11th 2011 — with 1 comment


“Gold Chain” is the latest song from Black Light Dinner Party,  the New York city collective of producers. It’s more electronic goodness from the band that absolutely wowed me with their first release, “Older Together“, which was one of my favorite songs of the first half of the year.

“Gold Chain” is stacked high in layers of golden synths that create a world of sound so dreamy, it’s nearly unfair. Grab a mp3 download of it below, along with “Small Boxes”, another song that they previously released.

Black Light Dinner Party – Older Together

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2011 — with 2 comments

Black Light Dinner Party. Get familiar with that name. It will be a name that you’ll be seeing around a lot more frequently in the future.

The band is a team of four produces, based in three cities, completing nearly two years of collaboration to create the sound found on the incredible single “Older Together”. It’s a song that you will love immediately. The chilled vocals will have you mesmerized, while the rest of the band freezes you with electronic interplay that’s becoming an east coast trademark. Calling it catchy is a fair understatement.

This song hits you like a cool summer breeze. It’s hypnotic in every sense of the word. I feel cooler every time I hit repeat. This song challenges every other song out there for the summer anthem of 2011, and this is Black Light Dinner Party’s first song. How’s that for a debut. Yeah, you’re damn right it’s impressive.

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011

By Will Oliver, January 6th 2012 — with 17 comments

Thanks to Cam for the artwork.

Here’s the list you all have been waiting for (top albums of the year can be found here). It’s 100 of my favorite songs of the year. The term “best” doesn’t leave much room for objectivity, and favorite sounds a lot more personal. I didn’t have the heart to limit these great songs to a list of just 25-50 because there’s simply too much good stuff out there. You can stream all the tracks individually,and listen to the spotify playlist.

I present to you, my favorite songs of the year 2011:

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011…So Far

By Will Oliver, August 18th 2011 — with 34 comments

(Thanks to Camilo Bejarano for the perfect album art)

I love making lists. I’m the guy who just needs to compile a list of my favorite songs midway (a month late, I know..) through the year. I did one last summer and had a great time doing it, so I had to do another.

I meant to do this in July but life got in the way of that. We All Want Someone To Shout For turned three years old a few weeks ago, so think of this as a little thank you from me. Rather than just limited the list to only 50 songs, I splurged even more with 70. I just didn’t want to leave any of these songs out because I believe they all deserve some spotlight.

This is by no means final, you never know what my list will look like come December. I offer it to you as a way for you to get close with the songs that I have in 2011. I included a mp3 stream of each, and for a limited time you can download the entire thing as a ZIP file. I know it may be overwhelming to some, but give it a d/l spin some songs, and come back to it later. If you like the music, search the artist and support them by buying their music on itunes, amazon, or going to see a show.

I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I have. Without further ado, I present to you We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011…So Far:
