We saw Gold Child, the band of singer/songwriter Emily Fehler, two times at CMJ: one was in the enchanted setting of the rooftop on The Delancey, which mixed tropical plants with Northeastern fall decoration. There she played an acoustic set, together with drummer Jake Beal and guitarist David Von Bader,[…]
I still can get over Ellie Herring jumping into that muddy lake on such a dreary fall day. But apparently what she finds there makes it worth for her. The rest of us can enjoy the soundtrack with its relentless techno beat and the cool vocals. And by the way,[…]
As mentioned in my CMJ review of Courtesy Tier‘s show at Arlene’s Grocery, I was determined to join lots of other fans to celebrate the band’s EP release last Tuesday. Many came out to see Courtesy Tier as well as the opening bands Yankee Longstraw, Spritzer and Isadora. The latter[…]
Start the week with this beautiful Song Pick of the Day Breathe by London duo Dahlia Sleeps. With its restraint, emotional vocals and build up it reminds me on Banks’ work. I didn’t find anything else by them yet, but will keep my eyes open.
We’ve already posted a bunch about Lara Snow, a new electro pop artist from Tel Aviv who visited New York for CMJ. She and her collaborator and drummer Jonathan Harpak convinced us at two shows a few weeks ago with energetic and catchy songs and an overall great performance. Listen[…]
Happy Sunday with this Song Pick of the Day by NY singer/songwriter Donna Missal. It’s an emotional, soulful track with a big voice, although I don’t think this Keep Lying thing is a good idea long term in a relationship.
Protocol starts right of with such a feel of urgency and importance which makes it hard to escape its allure. Once the vocals set in, I was hooked and didn’t want to let go anymore. There are big orchestra violins and trumpets too and Protocol, our Song Pick of the Day[…]
Seeing an artist at her first show is a rare exciting event, so I’m happy that, after Mothica earlier this year, we had a second opportunity with Jennylee, the solo project of Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg. And while she probably has hundreds of shows all over the world under[…]
We saw plenty of excellent bands and took hundreds of photos and suddenly, it’s already November and we still haven’t put out all of it yet! So, rather then taking even more time, I do what I love doing and combine some of the super cool trios (aka #3IsABand) I’ve seen[…]
November shows its grey and rainy face this afternoon, yet our Song Pick of the Day Whispers by the Brooklyn-based duo The Rungs, will sweep away any gloomy thoughts. Instantly! It’s an upbeat and playful little gem of a song with just the right dose of sunshine and a touch of[…]
“The good is often surprisingly close, especially when living in a cultural metropolis”, is what came to my mind immediately upon learning that A R I Z O N A is a three piece from well, New Jersey. They do however divide their time between East Coast, West Coast aka[…]
Something’s Wrong With My Mind shred GT \// and while I am pretty sure my mind works just fine, I am also certain to make this intense, pulsating psychedelic track our Song Pick of the Day. Get Trying aka GT V/ are a power trio from Birmingham, AL currently touring[…]
Watch Kianna Alarid sing this wonderfully big pop song World Without End with her band Yes You Are. While Kianna has been making music for quite some time, Yes You Are is a new collaboration with Jared White and with this kind of music they are heading straight for the[…]
