To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Cleveland based indie-rock band Nineteen Action News announces their 3rd release, a Christmas themed EP slated to hit i-tunes on Black Friday. The release is seasoned with the same tongue-in-cheek approach found in their past albums, the twist on this particular record is an end-of-days zombie attack on Christmas.

Though layered with comical descriptions of graphic violence, the album has a fun and light-hearted feel. The album comes across well done and fun to listen to, and sounds like the band had fun making it. While distinctly ‘christmasy,’ the album is also distinctly Nineteen Action News, taking novelty Christmas music to new heights.

Stay tuned for more updates, news, and previews from this generalpublic.net release.

"Lost in Space" the 7 song EP follow up to "Nineteen Action News" is now available on iTunes.

posted 7 years ago

“Lost in Space” is a collection of new and unheard material from the “Our Time Has Come” sessions, featuring 5 brand news songs and 2 alternate recordings. This digital EP starts of with a Flaming Lips-style ballad called “Is there a Heaven?” The melody from the song can be heard faintly playing on their debut record in the track “Lost in Transmission,” setting theses 5 tracks into the proper timeline of events.

“Heart Attack” is modeled like a 60’s pop song, and plays out in the traditional fun-but-moody way that we’ve come to hear from 19 Action News. G.P.S. however leaves the fun aside, and delivers a brooding tune that channels the Beatles’ “Happiness is a Warm Gun” delivering a barrage of guitars, and a poetic rap verse in an nontraditional 6/8 meter.

“Red Planet” rolls in like an imperial march, or universal anthem, as those escaping from earth make plans for their new home to be a place of perfection. The song drips with social commentary offering a polar opposite to the anthem “Meteor Rain” at the end of their previous album.  “Spilled Milky Way” concludes the new material, with the phrase “Don’t you cry for me, we’re only spilled milk in this galaxy” illustrating a darker angle to the story they began telling on “19 Action News.”

“Greed (remix)” and “Happiness” are familiar tunes, one completely remixed while the other is a foot stomp, hand clap demo, letting the listener peek into the creative process of the Cleveland, Ohio band. Overall, the project is a solid effort and adds another strong piece into this band’s growing catalog.

19 Action News is sci-fi indie rock from Cleveland, Ohio.

With influences as varied as Belle & Sebastian and Bruce Springsteen, Pigeon John and Danger Mouse, 19AN has crafted out a unique and unforgettable sound that seamlessly blends rock and roll with elements of underground hip-hop and indie pop.

19 Action News' debut album, "Nineteen Action News" is a sci-fi concept album. It explores an apocalyptic story about space travel, love, loss, and giant asteriods. They followed it up with an EP, "Lost in Space" that ties in to the story told on the debut album.

With energetic live shows, bizarre experimentation, and superb songwriting, 19 Action News is quickly carving a name for themselves as Cleveland's premiere sci-fi indie rock band.
