NEW ALBUM: Idgy Dean – Ominous Harminus

Idgy Dean was one of the first shows we saw this Spring at SXSW in Austin. Listed on the schedule as a “one-woman rock band from Brooklyn”, we didn’t quite know what to expect, but it turned out to be one of the best shows we saw at the festival.[…]

Mothica plays first show ever at Palisades

It is exciting to have the opportunity to witness the first show of an artist who probably has a long career in front of her (if she wishes to have one). Mothica from Brooklyn took the stage at Palisades to sing a few songs that will (probably) make it on[…]

Howard gave a heartfelt hometown show at Mercury Lounge

PHOTOS: Dead Leaf Echo live at Alphaville

Having seen Dead Leaf Echo not even two months ago at this year’s South By Southwest festival, playing old favorites but also some of their exciting new material, I was especially intrigued to see them at a Brooklyn venue, that I didn’t know yet. Last Friday, they played together with The Midnight Hollow, Tiers[…]
