indie band of the day

okay guys, so yesterday i was extremely sick so i couldnt post the indie band of the day. therefore here is the band of the day for the 15th, they're called parov stelar and they either play as a band or just Marcus Füreder . so here is their info:
Marcus Füreder (born November 27, 1974), better known by his stage name Parov Stelar is a musician who lives and works in Linz, Austria. He performs with his band the Parov Stelar Band — and as a DJ worldwide. Parov Stelar is the head of Etage Noir Recordings.
After gaining experience as a DJ at nightclubs during the mid-late 1990s, Parov Stelar got involved in producing and publishing in 2000.
After early works under the pseudonym Plasma and his real name, and also being a partner of the label Bushido Recordings, in 2004 he started producing under the pseudonym Parov Stelar. In the same year he founded his own label: Etage Noir Recordings.
His first release, for Etage Noir, "KissKiss EP" and the soon after released LP "Rough Cuts", provided him immediate breakthrough on the international electronic music scene. His specific approach to music production, combined with a proven sense of sound aesthetics, led to massive reaction of audience and colleagues all around the world, giving him reputation as the founder of a new genre: "electro swing"
Parov Stelar's tracks have been used on more than 700 compilations (for example: Hôtel Costes, Buddha Bar, Electro Swing) and have been the soundtrack for numerous TV ads, TV shows, TV series and movies. In 2012, his retro-song "Booty Swing" was featured in the US television advertising campaign entitled "Just the Right Amount of Wrong" for the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas resort and casino. Also in 2012, an excerpt from his song "Chambermaid Swing" was used in a well-known Bacardi commercial.

The Parov Stelar Band

After starting as a solo artist and gaining initial success, in 2005 Parov Stelar began to perform live sets with a full band. This collaboration with four (later five) musicians noticeably influenced his work.
