Italian born, LA based duo Dumbo Gets Mad started in the summer of 2010 in a basement; soon after the duo started working on first album Elephants At The Door (2011), producing weird and trippy sounds. Two years later there was Quantum Leap, and now, with third album Thank You Neil, Dumbo Gets Mad explores different worlds and influences such as Italian library music, 70s experimental American soul music (Shuggie Otis) and current influences such as Connan Mockasin and Stones Throw. Thank You Neil is a concept album inspired by “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey”, the 2014 American Science documentary television series and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (hence the title of the album: Thank You Neil.)
My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.Northern Transmissions is a Music website that features interviews from musicians and bands we love. We have interviewed so many of them, from The Drums to Destroyer. We review albums by from many labels around the world, including Merge, Sub pop, Bella union, Matador, 4AD, Rough Trade, Capture Tracks, Hardly Art, and many many more.Hope you guys enjoy the website as much as we like working on it.
