Electro-pop band gets buzz from NME, will play with Diplo and Chromeo

A screen-shot of Jamuel Saxon's new video

NME just premiered the video for "Planetarium," a super catchy track by electro-popsters Jamuel Saxon. Directed by Mike Brown and Anthony Levas, the video takes place at one of the band's always-delightful dance parties. Might this attention from a big British music magazine portend for more buzz to come? We'll see. 

Jamuel Saxon will play with Diplo and Chromeo at the San Diego Bay on Friday, Nov. 18, as part of a music fest put on by America's World Cup. See more info at TheMixster.com. (They're not listed in the lineup, but a press release says they're playing at the show.)

Oh, yeah, one more thing. They've launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise more than $4,000 to pay for a van, a new keyboard and their PR guy, who I suspect helped nab them that NME post.
