Something For Rockets





LA-based Something For Rockets, in its earliest incarnation, began when group members Rami Perlman (son of living-legend violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman) and Josh Eichenbaum met at Brown University. After a senior year spent recording, the two packed up and headed to LA where they hooked up with ex-Mori Stylez drummer Barry Davis, thus completing the Something For Rockets line-up of today. Though currently unsigned, the band has built up quite a reputation for themselves around LA, selling out shows, releasing a 3-song EP and most recently, self-releasing a 12-song full length album. The self-titled debut full length was written, recorded and produced solely by the band over the course of a year. They worked tirelessly on nights and weekends and the effort shows. Though it's mainly available only via online outlets, Something For Rockets is an album worth your attention. Blending danceable beats with textured live and electronic instrumentation, not to mention infectious melodies, this album is chill enough for an afternoon at home alone, but crank up the volume, and it's a dance party waiting to happen. Something For Rockets are more than a re-hashed dance/rock outfit pulling their influences from times past. They are skilled songsmiths who write intelligent, poignant lyrics (they DID go to Brown), and effectively mold them with ass shaking beats into three-to-five minute pop songs with hooks that are impossible to ignore. So if you haven't already, go get yourself a copy of this record. You'll be glad you did. And label guys, these guys are unsigned. Reach out.
