RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.)
Family Force 5 released their new project, “Time Stands Still,” this week. On Tuesday, the band was part of a live Q&A session at You-Tube Studios, answering questions from their loyal, and ever-growing fan base.
Family Force have been making numerous professional and personal adjustments; Long time singer Solomon Olds left the band in 2013; and Joshua Olds was stricken with kidney failure, sustained dialysis treatment, and made a full recovery.
Family Force 5 forged ahead, realigned, and recorded a remarkable new project; “Time Stands Still” is a joyous mix of full-throttle rock ‘n’ roll, electro-dance pop, and retro synth-pop. A recent post on the band’s facebook stated: “I was listening and dancing all over my kitchen; your music makes me happy!”
Derek Mount, a.k.a. Chapstique, was a guest this week on New Tunes at 9, and he spoke about Family Force 5 redefining their sound. Listen here http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/
