I purchased a time machine at Walmart last week with plans to travel back to the 80â€™s for a quick vacation. After spending a few hours researching on Google what people wore in that eraâ€¦I ran to the nearest Goodwill Store in Pacoima, CA and dropped $19.27 on a wardrobe that would have made even Alex P. Keaton proud! I packed a lunchâ€¦picked my coordinates carefully to ensure a perfect time match and I was ready to launch back to my destination!
Now for the moment of truthâ€¦
I get into my Walmart Time Machine with lunch in hand fully geared up in my 80â€™s clothing ensemble (and I am looking hot) and I close the door behind me. With a fast beating heart and perspiration on my brow..I push the start buttonâ€¦and then I push it againâ€¦and againâ€¦and againâ€¦and againâ€¦.what?!?!?! Whatâ€™s going on here? Why am I not moving? Come on nowâ€¦I push it againâ€¦still not workingâ€¦dammit to hellâ€¦did I just waste $24.99 on a Time Machine that doesnâ€™t work? I think I just did.
Now that my plans to kick it with Phil Collins, Don Johnson and Rockwell have been crushedâ€¦my next mission was to find a band in 2011 that could bring me as close to the 80â€™s as possible.
After several days of no sleep and consuming gallons of Tab, I found a band that satisfied my urge to be in the 80â€™s!
Airlines is a band based here in Los Angeles who has captured the essence of the electronic and synth textures that were dominant in the 80â€™s whilst at the same time adding a Phil Collins meets MGMT meets Frou Frou feel to their songs. Their music is best described as island like clubby dance chill musicâ€¦I know thatâ€™s a mouthful and itâ€™s truly hard to explain..but you really need to listen to them to catch my driftâ€¦seriously folks!
If you are in the LA Area on 7/25,Â they will be performing at the Silverlake Lounge in Silverlake, CA..so make sure that you check them out!
