Starflyer 59’s “The Brightest of the Head” from Dial M was featured on NBC’s Chuck. Last season The Brothers Martin was featured on the pilot of Chuck. The creator of the OC is also behind Chuck and has used music in his shows extensively. I’m just waiting for them to use “Fell in Love at 22”.

A clip from a show on Dec. 6 at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

I run a YouTube page dedicated to Starflyer 59 and Joy Electric. Recently I received a video from someone on the Starflyer message board and I’ve posted a couple of the songs online. It’s funny to see Jason Martin on the acoustic taking requests from the audience and telling them they’re offbeat with their clapping. It’s nice to see since there is no official Starflyer DVD.

I started listening to Jason Martin’s music about 13 years ago and I still enjoy it as much now as I did in the beginning. Even though the band is mostly a solo project these days Jason keeps trucking with a new recording just about every year.

The latest album is entitled: “Dial M” and the title is a takeoff off of a Hitchcock movie title. The CD is scheduled to be released this upcoming Tuesday. The songs are remade versions of the “Ghosts of the Future” demos that were released as an vinyl box set.

Overall, I enjoy the new CD because the years have taught Jason Martin how to write songs that are tried, tested and true. My favorite song “Magic” is a bonus track that is also available on Amazon. Currently you can stream the album here and I encourage you to check out my Brothers Martin YouTube page here.
