There are a lot of sad songs built on minor-key acoustic guitar melodies, but fewer heartbreak anthems employ propulsive, shuffling rhythms, and fuzzy, electrofunk-style bass as a complement to their paeans of a busted relationship. Danny Malone’s “Spiderlegs” isn’t like most sad songs, though. “Heartbreak you can dance to” is a seldom-attempted goal, but it’s in effect here, and Malone is drawn to the idea because he’s a big fan of heartbreak.
“I guess I do sort of rejoice in sadness or despair,” Malone says. “I don’t necessarily dislike those feelings. They’re such interesting emotions, and seemingly deeper and more complex than the lighter ones. Why not celebrate feeling something so intense?” “Spiderlegs” is definitely a way to feel good about feeling bad, and when it sounds like this, there’s not much wrong with that.

Musician, entrepreneur and emerging fashion icon Emmy Wildwood merges her boldly curated style of glam rock americana and music industry savvy into the launch of Tiger Blanket Records (TBR), a vintage clothing boutique and record label located in the hipster capital of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Located on Graham Avenue in the heart of Williamsburg, Tiger Blanket Records carries a rock ‘n’ roll mash up of men’s and women’s collectable concert t-shirts, leather motorcycle jackets, vintage jeans and beautiful dresses all handpicked by Wildwood. As a teen growing up in Tucson, Arizona, Wildwood started a clothing store, The Hang Up, which she eventually sold to pursue her music career. After moving to Brooklyn in 2008 and starting two bands—including the immediately buzzed about power rock trio VELTA —Wildwood decided to combine her business acumen, strong fashion sense, and love for music into one brand—Tiger Blanket Records.
“How do we put this delicately…Adrianne Gonzalez is a fearless beast of artistic expression. Here’s a woman so unafraid of taking risks – so unafraid to be who she is as a musician, an artist, a feminist, an “out” role model – that it’ll be no surprise to us if Gaga’s “little monsters” grow up and start idolizing her instead.”
This duo continues to impress with their sophomore album “You Are Not Alone”. They are the perfect example of success in the new music business. Click the image to read about the record on Billboard.
