Five Can’t Miss Shows at Northside 2016

One of the best alternatives out there is the independently run Northside Festival in Brooklyn. It’s a week-long festival, beyond music, featuring content and innovation programming as well. The festival gets its name from where it is held, […]

That’s Right! – “Legs” EP

That’s Right! – “Legs” EP

For four nice-looking boys from New York City, That’s Right! gets pretty freaky on their debut studio EP, Legs. They are a psych-rock band after all. I wasn’t expecting so much sonic wildness from their picture and from meeting them in person, but that’s the beauty of music. If you want to soak your EP in fuzz, it doesn’t matter […]

CoverBack Thursday – Down Here in Hell (With You) by Chandanie

Hidden Gem – indie-rock chameleons, Fleabite

Hidden Gem – indie-rock chameleons, Fleabite

I know some people prefer Spotify, Google Play, or even streaming stuff through YouTube, but SoundCloud is my choice because of the variety of music that’s available and the algorithm that site uses to suggest new music is usually spot on. Exhibit A is today’s Hidden Gem – Fleabite. Fleabite was originally created by three young women – Ali, Vicky, […]

Hidden Gem — Laney Jones

Hidden Gem — Laney Jones

Last weekend, I was fortunate to catch a few songs from this week’s Hidden Gem at Pianos on the Lower East Side. I had just finished up a set with my band. I had to run and play two songs with a Sam Cooke impersonator in a downtown variety show, so I had to run pretty quickly. But I left with […]

Surf Rock is Dead – “Zen A”

Surf Rock is Dead – “Zen A”

“Zen A” from Surf Rock is Dead, another of our favorite discoveries, sees the NYC-based go a bit more dreamy and shoegaze-y on this awesome track. Like Bronx Cheerleader, we’re patiently awaiting a record. The duo was featured in the January 30th playlist with “Late Risers”, which is below along with “Equinox”. You can hear “Zen A” and several other […]

Fin-Folsom – “Horses”

Fin-Folsom – “Horses”

With their debut EP, Ruins+Rituals, just out, NYC-based Fin-Folsom have created a terrific album. The five songs recall the raw, blues-rock of The Districts. Like the Pennsylvania band, Fin-Folsom show a knack for great songwriting despite their youth while mixing in with riffs that reflect the rock of the ’70s. There’s also a touch of the Cold War Kids in terms of the […]

2/3 Goat share “Jenny” off upcoming Album

After hearing New York’s 2/3 Goat for the first time, it should be no surprise to learn lead singer, Annalyse McCoy, is indeed related to those McCoys. Their sound is a blend of Americana, alt-country, and rock and roll. An American story, “Jenny” is a track that is based on the story of Jenny Wiley. Wiley was taken prisoner by Native Americans […]

Mundo Musique: Varick – “We All Know the Rest”

New York’s Keith Varick goes by just his last name, Varick.  On November 4th, Varick is going to release his debut record, Boundless EP. He recently shared “We All Know the Rest” and it’s a really cool electronic track.  At first it’s intriguing but hits its stride at about the 1 minute mark when the electronics pick up. And at […]

Mundo Musique Hidden Gem: Porches – Slow Dance in the Cosmos

Like many, I had never heard of the New York based indie rock band Porches until Sylvan Esso decided to cover them on Sirius Radio’s XMU Sessions, an in studio program where currently relevant bands play strip down versions of their latest material.  A staple of the show is for the artist to sing one cover song, typically picking a classic […]

Mundo Musique: Interpol – El Pintor

NYC’s Interpol has had a winning formula since their first album Turn On The Bright Lights.  Driving bass lines, Paul Banks’ unique voice and guitars cutting through all of it.  Though since their last record, Interpol, the band lost one of its most distinctive features, the bass playing of Carlos D. After Carlos left the band, they had a few […]
