THE LAZY ENVIRONMENTALIST: Lazy Band

THE LAZY ENVIRONMENTALIST airs Tuesdays at 8PM E/P.

Working on Lazy Band reminded me just how challenging pursuing a creative goal can be. The women of Raining Jane who I attempt to green on this episode have been on the road for ten years writing music, refining their sound, and jamming on stage for audiences all over the country. To be that dedicated to a vision is rare. To be so in love with doing something such as playing music is a gift in itself. To see it through amidst cramped hotel rooms and thousands of long miles logged on the road requires levels of perseverance that go beyond what most of us believe we are capable of doing.

The Crystal Method: Exclusive "Behind-the-scenes" look at Divided By Night

Comprised of Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan, THE CRYSTAL METHOD is one of the best-selling electronica bands in the United States. They’ve come a long way since their debut album, Vegas (’97), which went platinum…a feat that most electronic bands can only dream of. Having earned their reputation for creating explosive live sets throughout the 90′s, the duo has gone beyond studio mixing and DJ-ing to scoring film, television, and video games. During a hiatus following the release of Community Service II (’05), Kirkland and Jordan took a break from live performance and focused on other projects like their first original motion picture soundtrack for LONDON, Nike’s Drive: Nike + Original Run, and the deluxe edition of Vegas which contained various remixes.

Divided By Night is their latest album and is their “re-introduction” into performing live sets once again. Recently seeing them in concert, Lara Marsman of BILLBOARD.COM said that they “still perform as they did fifteen years ago, even after a five-year hiatus, demonstrating why they are the original gangsters of electronic music.”
