Hailey Wojcik – “XO Skeleton”

Hailey Wojcik – “XO Skeleton”

It’ll be on Wojcik’s upcoming EP, Book of Beasts, which is due out on March 3 on cassette via Wiener records and on her bandcamp. Watch the video below! And as a little bonus, […]

Tomas Doncker Band – “Big Apple Blues”

Tomas Doncker Band – “Big Apple Blues”

I have huge respect for the blues and especially for how much it has influenced some of the great rock and roll pioneers and even current bands we love today. I grew up in a household where thankfully rock n’ roll was shared heavily along with blues influences such as BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Muddy Waters (Thanks Dad!). I enjoy a […]

Darlings – ‘Feel Better’

Darlings – ‘Feel Better’

Darlings can be very loosely described indie-pop band from Brooklyn. However, categorizing them in any genre does them a huge disservice, as they channel many different influences and achieve many different sounds. Their upcoming record Feel Better, due out January 20th is a great example of that.  Feel Better was self-recorded and features four very talented and creative musicians. The […]

Mundo Musique: A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s Dreamy Album, “Sea When Absent”

Mundo Musique: A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s Dreamy Album, “Sea When Absent”

Just out yesterday, the multi-city band A Sunny Day in Glasgow have released quite possibly the album for the summer with Sea When Absent. While it is difficult to pin down exactly the sound or genre of ASDIG, Sea When Absent is reminiscent of Broken Social Scene’s last couple of albums, most notably Foregiveness Rock Record, and the synth-pop-rock of New Zealand’s […]

Mundo Musique: The Antlers Find New Landscapes with “Familiars”

Mundo Musique: The Antlers Find New Landscapes with “Familiars”

Listening to The Antlers isn’t for the faint of heart. Their music is heavy sometimes, their lyrics are dense and even dark. The focus is creating sonic masterpieces, not mainstream chart toppers. On their 2009 breakthrough, Hospice, the Brooklyn trio created a dark, personal album that revolved around the events of the death of singer Peter Silberman’s friend and his […]
