Cats Cradle Robbers’ New Single Debuts on Radio Xenu

December 25, 2016 in Front | Leave a reply

Cats Cradle Robbers is pleased to announce the release of Balayage and a Mocha, a new instrumental track from their upcoming album, as a Christmas treat for their fans. Fans of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra or Mannheim Steamroller will enjoy this highly melodic tune with its intricately-woven guitar, piano, and synthesizer melodies and driving rhythm. Balayage and a Mocha is available for free on the band’s Soundcloud page from Christmas day until January 29th. The track will also debut on Radio Xenu, Rocker’s Dive radio, and Open the Door Radio.


Band members Nick Dallett and Ed Essey have been working to complete a new album, to be their 5th. Originally due for Christmas, the new album has been delayed due to the happy event of the birth of Essey’s daughter Layla. The album is on track to be completed early in 2017. Balayage and a Mocha is the second track to be released from the new collection, after Mile High Clubbin’, which was released this past summer. The new album will be oriented towards club DJs and will cover a variety of house styles.

Cats Cradle Robbers, Seattle’s most creative electronica duo, has been creating experimental electroacoustic music since 2007. Their previous albums have covered a diverse range of experimental electronic styles. The new album represents the first time the band has focused on a more mainstream electronic dance music style.

Independent Artist Initiative

July 15, 2016 in Front | One comment

Radio Xenu has always been about supporting the lesser known musicians, the ones who are flying under the radar and not getting the big FM promotion. Before they hit it big, we were playing artists like Twenty One Pilots and The Neighbourhood, and now they’ve hit it big. For the last six years, Radio Xenu has followed a certain format of indie-rock-electronic that’s limited us in playing certain genres and indie artists in our AutoDJ station rotation, but that has officially changed today. We have a new indie initiative that will include the great independent artists that are grinding every week to get their name out there. We know that you can get any of the music we play On Demand via any music app, but we’re now hoping to give you more music you CAN’T easily get without seeking it out from those streaming services. With the #RXTop20 recently passing and numerous DIY/Indie artists in the mix such as the winners Rogues Among Us, JDVBBS, Joey Eppard, Weerd Science and more, we’re now going to play more underground artists in the mix of our regular format. What does all of this even mean? Artists, send us your songs. Fans, submit songs you think belong and tell the artists about us. Let’s make this happen! Submit music to
