In the summer of 1984, my parents took my sister and I to see Gremlins, and it scared the bejesus out of me – whatever the word “bejesus” means. An avid moviegoer and fan of executive producer Steven Spielberg, the film selection seemed like a no-brainer for my parents and I even though I was eight years old. But, after the sweet introduction to Gizmo – the second the Gremlins appeared (or didn’t – I bolted after the science teachers gets it), I bolted the theater in tears. That brings me to today’s A-Sides. Say what? Yes. My favorite Mogwai’s catchphrase was “bright light bright light,” and the name of our first artist today is just that: Bright Light Bright Light. Convoluted opening graphs aside, this singer/songwriter is quite good whether you feed him after midnight or not.
The Jezabels are only a band who put out one of the best albums in 2012 so far. Below is their exclusive “A-Sides” performance of “Sahara Mahala” off their last EP. Get their new album “Prisoners” now, and thank me later. Oh, and be on the look out for the full Jezabels session soon on the interwebs.
