Longtime listeners of KNTU's Sunday night Frequency Down program are surely salivating at the opportunity to check out this upcoming live show by their favorite artist, mellowdrone. On the debut EP, a demonstration of intellectual property, 21-year-old solo artist Jonathan Bates (aka mellowdrone) showed amazing chops as both a singer and arranger, providing us with "and repeat," easily the best fucked-up relationship song I've heard in years. Now Bates is kickin' it with a full band, a new album called go get 'em, tiger and a national tour that finally brings him to Dallas. All Beck and Sparklehorse comparisons aside, this guy is really onto something special. If this show is anywhere near as good as these two records, you're in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. See you there.
